We Have A Winner! And An Apology.

First things first. I must apologize to Maureen, who came to the shop at 12:00 sharp and I was not there. I am so sorry. I was home, writing down all of the names onto slips of paper and did not make it to the shop until 2:00. Please forgive me for not being clear in my post. Trust me, I heard all about it!! :( Okay, now for the winner of the Hop Into Spring Giveaway!
As I said, at 12:00 PM I wrote all of the names on little slips of paper. Some of them twice, as they had written about the giveaway on their blogs. (Thank you so much, ladies!)

The names were placed in the sewing basket which was then locked with a vintage clothespin and taken to A Scarlet Thread where the drawing took place. I have to say that it was pretty exciting to choose a winner for our first giveaway. Pins and needles, people!

Our lovely hostess, Karen displays the sewing basket with aplomb. Isn't she cute?

Opening the basket, her hand reached in and gave everyone's name a tumble. Did you get dizzy?

And out it comes!


Congratulations to you, DeeDee!!
You have won the very first A Thread of Red blog giveaway!
(I noticed you are a local gal. Would you like to come to the shop and pick up your prize or have it mailed? Either way is fine, but we would love to meet you. Please e-mail me at with your decision. If you choose to pick it up, it will be waiting for you Monday afternoon.)
Thank you very much to all of you who entered. We are grateful to each and every one of you. Don't worry if you did not win this time, there will be more giveaways to come. You have my word on that.
