|Hmmm . . .|
Have I ever picked a winner when the sun shines, I ask myself, and has this summer been so bad because there have been so many jolly prizes to be had?
|There's something in here that smells rather nice|
So, as seems to have become the custom, I took the girlies in fur coats outside to help me in my task.
|Well, if she will, then I will|
They had fur coats, I had a cardi (cashmere, of course, but you can't see me, so I could be making it up), and I had a butter dish for one set of entries, and a little chicken bowl for the others.
|It doesn't look like butter . . .|
Mad Dog was the front runner and was into the chicken bowl in a trice; the Little Stranger needed some enticing but in the end showed far more in the way of tenacity, enthusiasm, and tossing little pieces of paper around. Teddy-Face was nowhere to be seen - presumably asleep by the Aga, and utterly unaware of the fun to be had in the garden.
|Any more for any more?|
And here we have the winners (luckily I took photos, as I had quite forgotten who was what by the time I had battled through the gales and was back in the house).
Cue fanfare number 1 - the winner of A Green Guide to Traditional Country Foods is:
And the winners of a copy of Organic Places to Stay are:
|Summerfete, Noknittedknickers, and Nicky|
So perhaps you lovelies (Pipany, Summerfete, Noknittedknickers, and Nicky) could email me with your addresses and your prizes will shortly be winging their way to you. And for those of you dears who were left on the lawn, commiserations to you, but I do have a couple more giveaways in the pipeline, one domestic and one constructive, so you have another chance to play very shortly.
|The indignity of it all|
And I am off to have a happy afternoon playing with my Go! Baby, a pile of fabric, and my free pattern book (if you want to join in the fun, you can sign up to download the patterns here). I have a baby present to make, but my cushion fetish is threatening to sidetrack my obligations . . .
