The Half-Way There Giveaway WINNER!


What a giveaway!

If you didn’t already know, I’m learning a new craft every month this year. (I’m a bit crazy, I know.) Making it six months through seemed like a good enough reason to celebrate.

What better way to celebrate than by having a blog party and a giveaway? With over three dozen entrants, there were 330 possible winning numbers.

So who had the lucky number?

Ashley, with number 173!

I prompted you all to tell me about your favourite craft. It was great to read through the comments and see how we all have so much in common, even when we are focused on different crafts. The passion is there throughout.

What Ashley said about her favourite craft:

I’m an avid crocheter and cross stitcher–especially the latter during the summer, because it’s easier to stay cool with either cross stitch or a lighter cotton yarn for crocheting during the heat of the day. That said–I’m foolhardy enough that I’m making a granny lace triangle shawl, in peacock merino, in mid-summer during the biggest heatwave the Bay Area has ever experienced.

And it’s still worth it–it’s fulfilling, it’s a useful craft, and it allows me to express my creativity in ways that I can’t during the daily grind of work and home life. It’s brought a peace and a mindfulness to my life that I didn’t even know I was missing before I picked up the fiber habit. Congratulations on making it more than halfway through, and enjoy the rest of your journey this year!

Congrats Ashley! Be sure to check your email! ;)

I’m off to Finland this Friday. I’m so excited! This month’s craft is sewing. My mother (and maybe even my sister!) will be showing me how to sew.

Showing how to sew. Now that’s a tongue twister!

Happy crafting,
