The winner of my “Junk Gypsy, Stitchin’ Post” giveaway is Vicki Wilkins, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about your favorite junk find.”
“Treasure hunting has been one of my favorite things to do for the past 30 years. This summer, one of my treasure finds was a 1930s Little Miss Tootsietoy Breakfast set. I then looked for a shadowbox and found one that looked a bit worn. The breakfast set with spoons, forks, and knives fit in the box for a sweet display in my kitchen. The best part about treasure hunting is going with my mom and daughter; my grandchildren have joined in the fun, and we are now a 4-generation party.”
The winner of my “Harvest Apron, Stitchin’ Post” giveaway is Winnie Jackson, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about a vegetable or fruit you grow that is your all-around favorite.”
“I have loved growing my dwarf blueberry bushes in my back yard. Nothing better than growing your own fruits to pick early in the morning for cereal or baking pancakes or homemade syrup. I have always grown blueberries and other berries. But blueberry is my favorite. I love to wear aprons in the kitchen. I love this one being offered with great pockets. Colors are so great and festive. In the magazine, I love seeing all those great aprons in the photos. Nothing better than a woman in the kitchen! I hope to be the one who is sporting this new apron in my home. Thank you for all you do.”
The winner of my “Natural Candy Store, Stitchin’ Post” giveaway is Jennifer MacKinnon, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about your favorite Halloween tradition.”
“Our favourite Halloween tradition is making a ‘spooky’ graveyard in our front yard for the little trick-or-treaters to walk past. We have taken many found pieces of plywood and wood scraps and written silly puns and signs that we post all over our graveyard, I mean front yard, then we don’t cut the grass around the gravesite, which isn’t hard to let grow in the soggy Pacific Northwest. It always looks really cool.”
The winner of my “Knit, Hook, and Spin, Stitchin’ Post” giveaway is Carol Vagher, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about your favorite kids’ project.”
“I work at a school for children with special needs. We have students from Preschool to 21 years old. We have an art teacher that works with the students doing adapted art projects. They are my absolute favorite!
The winner of my “Jackson’s Honest, Stitchin’ Post” giveaway is Honey, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about an inspiring company you support.”
“I hadn’t heard of this company, but after reading Megan’s story about her son, Jackson, and the challenges their family has gone through, I’m inspired! A family simply trying to do the best for their child. The product sounds amazing, and with the back story, it sounds like a win-win. I hope to find their products locally soon.
I’m also inspired by Will Leather Goods of Eugene, Oregon. They have a program that puts backpacks filled with school items in the hands of children/schools that need the help.
Thanks, MaryJane, for introducing me to this product and the amazing family behind it.”
The winner of my “Farm to Girl, Stitchin’ Post” giveaway is Bobbie Krohn, who left this comment in response to “Tell me what color of flower would look best tucked behind your ear. (My choice would be a red lily, or maybe a yellow rose, or maybe a pink peony or …)”
“For me, the beauty of a flower would be in the lilac. I have always loved lilacs … the color and the scent. It brings to mind my childhood days when sunshine and bare feet were the norm. Nothing smells lovelier.”
