A Stitch In Time: February Finishes Giveaway Winner

Remember, there's no such thing as a small act of kindness.
–Scott Adams

Wow! We had a lot of great finishes in February! Thank you to everyone who linked up! It was so fun to visit all of you and see the beautiful things you've made. I'm pleased, if not somewhat nervous, to announce the February winner, who will receive a Reunion by Sweetwater Jelly Roll, sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop. I had my little in-house random number generator, Grasshopper, pick a number between 1 and 49, and started to remind him that he could pick 1 or 49 or anything in between, but before I could finish my sentence, he picked 44. I asked him if he was sure and he confirmed.

Congratulations to
:partytime: Peggy :partytime:

whose Jr. High School play costume, was the winner.

Peggy is my mom, so now you understand why I am a bit nervous to announce the winner. Nepotism or other nefarious hijinks could be involved. But they definitely were not. When I called my mom to let her know she won she was delighted. She started to say, “Yay!” but stopped mid-word, changed her tone to one of a mother who suspects mischief and asked, “did you cheat?” I assured her that Grasshopper did not know which giveaway he was drawing for {doesn't even read my blog or know what giveaways are going on} and that it was a completely fair and honest draw. She went back to being delighted.

If you haven't already, take a minute to visit these really great finishes. I think you'll be inspired!

The March Finishes Linky Party is already open, so you can link up as you go, throughout the month of March. Remember to include the March Finishes button {code found on the March post} somewhere in your post. The giveaway, sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop, is an Avalon by Jason Yenter fat quarter bundle in the colorway of your choice.
