Monday Morning Prize Drawing

I want to thank everyone for participating in the Make-Do Apron Tutorial. Whether your a seamstress or not, if you left a comment your name was entered into the drawing. Up for grabs is the apron that was constructed in the course of the tutorial.


Unlike the Pioneer Woman I do not have to worry about wrangling 14,000 comments. I simply needed to disregard my Grammar Nazi Paula's additional three comments!! Way to go Paula. Without the burden of thousands of comments I can conduct the drawing in my favorite way - good old fashioned name drawing from a crystal trophy bowl.


I enlisted the help of the Farmer himself. He asks too many questions.

"What's this for?"

"What drawing?"

"What are they going to win?"

"An apron??????"

The last question was asked with a high level of incredulity in his voice.

""Yes honey, trust me, someone really wants this apron."

And without further ado......


Cyber drum roll please....


Yeah, I know, sloppy handwriting.

The winner is RITCH IN LOVE.

Drop an e-mail so I can get your address. Thanks everyone. We're going to be working on that basement again today but I promise to drop in a little later.

WAAAA! I'm bummed I missed the contest...but I am really excited to be the first to comment. There is so much responsibility...a tone to set if you will...Maybe I should go over to Ritch in Love and wrangle that pink beauty out of her hand! Come to think of it, your husband should have it on and done the drawing at the same time! That would have been true Farmer love ;)

Debbie said...

Let me rephrase my punch line which fell like a flat balloon because I was so excited to be the first commenter that I didn't preview it and left out an important word..."Your husband should have PUT on the apron and done the drawing at the same time! That would have been true Farmer love ;)"

That's better.

Congrats to Ritch In Love! She's going to love that apron!

I'm going to get started on mine today if it's the last thing that I do.

Say, I have a little something for you at my blog today.

Heather said...

Oh, she is so sweet!! I'm so glad she won.

Karen said...

Congratulations to 'Ritch in Love'!!

Now I'm off to finish my apron....which is being made from a pink shirt, too. The hubby won't wear it.

'You know I don't wear pink !'

'But it goes so well with your charcoal gray suit'


So be it ... an apron it is...

Merisi said...

"Hey, honey,
isn't this my perfectly good pink shirt?

Looks really pretty!

I checked out the corn in the fields along the Danube the other day. Sky high! What a summer (no, no photo - encountered a stag, that pretty much took my attention away from corn gazing). ;-)

It's been kinda crazy around here this morning, so I'm just logging on! I AM SO EXCITED! You have no idea how beautiful I think your apron is! Thank you! I will send you my email promptly! Thank you again! I will send you pics of my daughter's first apron when she completes it at sewing class! I can't wait to bake in it!

The apron turned out lovely, I'll have to give it a try. I like Debbie's idea of The Farmer in the Apron!

Jaime said...

I just heard about your site from Ritch In Love. What a wonderful idea to do a drawing. The apron is absolutely adorable, you should sell them. Thanks for the how-to post you did previously, I can't wait to try this out.


Congratulations Ritch! I could have been a bitch...but I thought about it for a titch and closed my mouth with a stitch! (I should win 2nd place for this little diddy, don't you think?)

Alaura said...
