The winner of our MaryJane’s Stitching Room giveaway is Susanne, who said in response to our question, “Tell me why you’re a farmgirl”:
“Even though I’ve lived in town for over 30 years now, I’m still a farmgirl at heart and dream of living on a farm again someday. There’s just a deep satisfaction in going out to milk on frosty mornings, picking fruit from your own trees and storing it for later, harvesting loads of veggies from the garden, making meals completely from homegrown ingredients, and enjoying the beauty of creation all around me. In the meantime, while waiting for a farm again, I enjoy my little garden beds, herbs, and flowers outside, and sewing, knitting, and cooking from scratch inside. I’d love to have this book to create from! Thank you for the giveaway!
Congratulations, Susanne! Watch for an email from the farm. Thank you, everyone, for your lovely comments. I thoroughly enjoyed reading them.

Carol, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about one of your favorite sewing projects.”
“I was the girl in high school who made many of my own clothes. Now I’m a quilter and a thrifty clothes shopper. BUT, I think I should revert to my earlier self. At my age (59, no really, I am 59), I am finding it harder and harder to find clothes that are ME. I would love to give this a try. My favorite project was all the clothes I made for my trousseau in 1980.”
Congratulations, Carol! Watch for an e-mail from the farm. Thank you, everyone, for your lovely comments. I thoroughly enjoyed reading them.
