The Little Blue Coat Girl Picks A Winner!!!

The Blue Coat Girl Pin that I won from Pat Winter's giveaway last month finally arrived last week. She felt right at home here in Southern California as it was rainy and cold all weekend here. Why, I even had to put on a sweater it was so cold!!! Don't you feel sorry for me?

I think she was a little disappointed when the sun came out and warmed up the sand on the beaches here in So Cal.


~*~



After all, the sign she is sporting says... ..."Baby It's Cold Outside"

To cheer her up a bit I thought I'd let
her pick the winner to my
tatting giveaway for
One World One Heart!

To my surprise...
She was ecstatic!

After all,
she is a giveaway gift, herself!
(Thanks, Pat!)
~*~

Oh, what's that???
Just get on with the picking of the winner, already?
Is that what you said!?!

Well, alrighty then!

First, I just have to say that with


475 comments
I'm very touched! So many of you
left sweet stories of family
members who tatted or your desire
to learn to tat for the longest time.
So, while only one of you will win I hope
that those of you who truly want to
learn to tat will take the opportunity to do so.

Oh, I am starting to hear some heckling
from the peanut gallery so I'd
best get on with the formalities.

May I have a drumroll, please???


Thank you, tunisianswife


Okay, Okay, Here's the winner, already!


Thank you, Blue Coat Girl and

Thank you for joining me today to find out our lucky winner here at TattingChic and remember, we're all winners, here!!! Right? Thanks for visiting. I'd love to here from you! Participating in the One World One Heart even has been an amazing experience! It has taken a lot of my time over the past few weeks, but it has been worth it! I have "met" so many talented and wonderful people who participated in the "Gypsy Caravan" by hosting giveaways on their own blogs, and I have also been fortunate to have some fabulous new visitors! Welcome!!! Please come and visit often. I've added a few new blogs to my google reader and found many new tatting blogs. You can see all the tatting blogs I follow on my profile page. This has been amazing!!! Thank you Lisa Swiftka of A Whimsical Bohemian for hosting this fabulous event! I hope you do this again next year as I would love to do it all over again!
Sincerely,
TattingChic

Wow! Maggie! I'm so excited to win! Thank you! You should have received my email and comment on your blog by now.

Hello, Our Shabby Cottage. Shame I didn't have enough books and shuttles and thread to give to everyone who commented! Thanks for visiting!

Christine,
1) Thank you!
2) Char would probably thank you if she responded to my the comments people make on my blog, but she doesn't so I'll just say thank you for her, LOL!
3)Thank you, again! The count is up to 6 giveaway gifts winnings so far! Woo Hoo!!!
4)Trixie is on YouTube! Just click on the youtube logo on the lower right side of the video and it will take you to the youtube page I found her on. She's actually a video response to someone's ACTUAL online drawing video that they did, LOL! I watched the original one which makes Trixie even more funny!
and 5)I think lists are fabuous!
