DH acted as official number drawer to find out the winner of a Winnie the Pooh - Marimekko eco bag and some sewing goodies. I had perfectly good pieces of an old envelope with numbers on them which I had used to mark my rows in the summer stash challenge quilt and some other quilts, so I only had to pick the numbers from 1 to16 (because that's all the rows I had numbered), and for the remaining numbers 17 to 27 the B series (1B etc) which I had made for the stranger quilt's right side strips. Clever, isn't it? The number he picked from his fishing hat was 8B, which means comment number 24, cpullum. Congratulations! Please email me (kotkarankki at gmail dot com) your postal address so I can send you the goodies. If I don't hear from you by Thursday the 21st, there will be another draw on Friday.
This is just a short post, but I need to show you what was the first I saw when coming home from the little holiday:
The last box had jumped down and half of the stems were broken. It just had to show the other flowers that they are not the only ones who dare jump (when I'm not there to watch!). These flowers could have lasted until late September, but now they are going to have to go and I'll buy some autumn flowers for the veranda floor instead. I don't tolerate this kind of behavior!
