Giveaway results and what's coming next!

 Hello from my corner of the sofa. Actually the whole sofa is mine, Wonderful Man has is own at the other side of the room (His corner is nowhere near as interesting as mine though). I'm sure you would have guessed that this is my corner anyway, I think the half made bunnies and baskets of wool are a sure giveaway, lol. This is just how I left it when I got up to go to bed last night and I just thought you might like to see it. Maybe we should have a 'my corner' post now and again and all share our respective comfy places and all the junk that goes with them.
 Now before we do the very important job of revealing the winner of my bunny giveaway I just want to tell you that next time you visit we will be climbing these old stone steps and exploring a brand new arts and crafts gallery that has just opened here in Wensleydale.
 I'll also be introducing you to my latest piece of embroidered felt which, funnily enough is now for sale in the above gallery. See! It's not just thrown together this blog, lol.
 So without further ado, bunny and I have counted and recounted and then counted several more times all the way to 91 skipping the comment that I left and a couple of duplicate entries from folks who forgot to leave their names the first time or hit the submit button twice. I do like everything to be fair and above board, lol.
 The winner is the lovely Sandi from Sandiart's Blog
Congratulations Sandi I'll be emailing you for your address shortly. To everyone else who took the time to tippety type me a lovely comment, thank you so much. I read every single one of them and wish I had a bunny for each of you but that would be a heck of a lot of bunny ears to stitch on (my least favourite part). It was lovely to hear from you all and especially nice to hear from a few of you who've been reading my blog for a long time but never left a comment, that's it now you know, there will be no stopping you, now you've done it once, lol.
Thank you all. A blog is nothing without it's readers.
See you next time for our day out at the new gallery.
love Fi x

I'm sad it's not me who won, but I got equally excited to hear that Sandi had won. Congratulations Sandi! I wonder if Sandi will keep it for herself or give it to her gorgeous granddaughter. Somehow I think that the granddaughter will win!

I had to smile when you mentioned Wensleydale. My girls watch a cartoon (for lack of a better word) called Rastamouse and one of the characters is President Wensleydale. I fully intend to make a Rastamouse one day.

Sandi said...

Me!!!! Really!!!!! Oh I did squeal and my feet did a little jig. Thank you so much Fi and Mr Random number picker, I will love my bunny as much or a teeny tiny bit more than my scrumptious Cup Cake. This is the very first thing I have ever won, I am over the moon excited.
xx Sandi

Like the idea of that Gallery. Has Milk Churn Cottage gone there by any chance?

Christine said...

Congrats to Sandi! Can't wait to visit the craft gallery - you must give us opening days & times. Your craft corner is very much like mine! We have his 'n' hers sofas too - his nibbs always seemed to find my lost needles after he'd sat on them so I'm banned from his sofa now!! Happy Easter! Cx

I'm loving the look of your new embroidered felt.

I love your corner. And I love the "my corner" post idea. Sometimes I have to be careful what I leave out or my 2 kitties try to finish up my knitting in the wee hours! Not a good thing. Your new felted embroidery piece is just gorgeous! Anxious to see more.

Ooh, your corner sure does look comfortable and cosy.

Will you be selling more of your makes in the new Arts and crafts gallery? Next time I am up that way I will have to have a look in there.. rather looking forward to it!

Hope you have a lovely Easter x

My corner of the sofa looks very similar to yours, organised chaos I think it's known as!
By the way love your crochet bouquet!

I think nearly every woman has a corner of their own, lol, funnily enough, I posted about my craft corner last week :) I love your corner, very cosy indeed, and your embroidered felt is truly amazing!
Happy Easter :) xxx
