And The Winner Is...

Today marks one year since I started Hanging On by a Needle and Thread. My how time flies when you are having fun! It's been a wonderful year connecting with so many fabulous quilters from all over the world and I'm so appreciative of your visits and kind words over this past year. I wanted to have a special giveaway to thank those of you who take the time to read and comment on a regular basis and I thought the fairest way to do that was to keep it a secret. Each comment that was left on my blog for the month of May counted as an entry in this giveaway. I listed them all in order starting with the first comment on May 1st and ending with the last comment on yesterday's post. I numbered them all and then used RANDOM.ORG to choose the winner...

I totally agree, the grass calls, the flower beds beg for attention, and I want to sew...hmmmm doesn't seem to work out so well right now! By the way I love the picture, quilts and grass...and those little dandelion heads...GREAT PICTURE!!

Barb from *We* Quilt is the winner! I will be sending you the pattern and fat quarters shown in the photo. Congratulations!

Once again, I'd like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to every one of you who visit here and especially to those of you who take the time to leave a comment along the way. I'm looking forward to year number two and what's the best way to start off another year of blogging? Another giveaway! On Wednesday, May 27th I will be participating in the May Giveaway Day coordinated by Sew, Mama, Sew!, so be sure to stop by on Wednesday to see what is up for grabs!

I like the way you had this 'secret' giveaway and for those that comment without an incentive. Congradulations to Barb.

Susan, congratulations of a year of blogging and congrats to Barb. I love the way you have done a surprise giveaway like Melanie did, its such a great way to choose a "genuine" blogging friend's comment. It has been wonderful making friends with you also over the time and I treasure our friendship which we have formed.dearsi

Congratulations Susan on blogging for a year. Yes definate cause for a celebration.

Congratulations too to Barb for winning such a fab prize.

I quite agree with your secret give away. I feel that a lot of people only turn up when a give away is on, which then stops a person who genuinely likes the blogger's work from having a chance of winning something they will cherish made by someone who has become a friend. Well that is why mine was secret too. :-)

I hope you have a warm glow feeling now knowing that you have passed a milestone. :-) Hugs.
