The winner of the "JOY" Stocking is .........

For all of you who have celebrated Christmas, I hope that the time with family and friends was absolutely joyful!! And speaking of joy, I'll get right to the point of this post!

Just before midnight last night, I asked my husband to draw the name of the winner of the JOY stocking filled with fat quarters. I printed out pages with all the comments on them and then cut them apart, folded them up and tossed them in the basket. That's my husband's hand mixing them all up..........he tossed those comments like he was making tossed salad...........then he drew the winning comment...............and the winner is................Oh, my gosh, I could not believe it! The winner was Joy of JoyPatch blog! Now what are the odds of that??!!! I have e-mailed Joy to let her know and to send me her snail mail address.

Several of you were really interested in the stocking and not so much in the fabric so I have enough fabric left that I will be able to make some kits for the stocking. I am going to send them to those of you who were so faithful in commenting about your Christmas memories. Mary Grace, Kritta and Sue H. shared such wonderful memories and did so almost everyday so they will each get a kit first. Then if I have enough fabric the rest of you who posted memories may also get a kit, so let me see how much fabric I have and I'll let you know.

(I cannot get this picture to enlarge when I double-click. Every once in a while this happens when I load a picture and it seems to do it to just the picture that I want you to be able to enlarge!!! Perhaps later, I'll reload the photos and see if that helps.)

I'll be back later with the "Puzzle Quilt" tutorial and later this weekend, I'll post just a few pics of our holiday get-togethers. Right now, I am headed out to do a little "after Christmas shopping" so I can pick up cards, gift wrap, etc. for next year. I love "after-Christmas shopping". Have a good afternoon!

Sandi, you are far too generous! I would love to have a kit for your darling stocking! At first, I was writing my memories for your giveaway because I really really really wanted the fat quarters and stocking. But as the days went on, I found it was very enjoyable to think back on all the wonderful, funny, thoughtful, and very memorable Christmases I've had over the years.

Thanks again!

I'm so excited to have won!!! Isn't that just the most incredible coincidence that I should win a stocking with my name on it!!!??!! Thank you so much Sandi, I can't wait to be able to hang my very own personolised stocking next Christmas :o)!!!
Joy :o)

I have been out grocery shopping, buying Christmas stuff for next year and stopped off to visit with my grandson and daughter. I had a good afternoon and then I come home to these three lovely messages!! When I told my daughter about Joy winning the stocking she said she got a little "shiver" just at the thought of her winning. I still can hardly believe it!

A very good news.
Congrat's to JoY:)
I'm very sure she'll be enJoYing with her winning because Sandi is a very talented Lady that makes all with heart and dedication.
