And the winner is ...

Greetings from snow-now-melting country!  May the thaw continue until the built up snow/ice on the roof is gone at least!

Star production has slowed to a snail's crawl, with only a couple more needed to round out my hoped-for total. Our new grandson has yet to make an appearance, but here is his first Christmas ornament made by Grandma, using bits of his baby quilt fabrics.

And now, the winner of this giveaway
is Dana Gaffney of Stormy Days blog fame, who said:

I need to check out that tool, seeing those annoying threads pop up under a piece of white is one of my big "make me whine" things. I still haven't found time for a star but I bookmarked the tutorial.
Congratulations Dana, I'll get your package out as soon as I have your mailing address!

Still lots to do before Christmas, so if I don't post again before then, wishing each and every one a blessed Christmas with family and friends!


  1. Wishing a Merry Christmas to you and your family. I know Dana will find that tool handy!

  2. Sweet idea for an ornament for the new little one.
    Congrats to your winner, and Merry Christmas to you!

  3. congrats to Dana! Love that you used the quilt fabric for the new baby's ornament. That is the kind of story that passes on for generations.

  4. Congratulations to Dana! Merry Christmas!

  5. Thank you so much I really need this tool and was going to look into one after things calm down (does that ever happen?).

  6. Congratulations to Dana! And Pat, I'm sending prayers for your grandson's safe and perfect birth!
    The little stars are adorable.
