Zakka Style Giveaway Winners

Wow.  It's been a month since my last post.  Sorry for being MIA.  I have most definitely been busy and have a LOT to blog about -- Quilt Market in Kansas City, our first-ever Fat Quarterly Community Retreat in London, my membership in the fun new Art Gallery Fat Quarter Crew, swap items (both sent & received), and other events -- but I've unexpectedly had to deal with a bit of real life lately, and blogging has fallen down in the list of priorities.  I hope to be around a bit more in the coming weeks and months, but it will likely be less than in the past for a while.  I appreciate your understanding.

Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give, Use and Enjoy - Front Cover Projects - ISBN: 978-1-60705-416-0

For today, I wanted to announce the winner of the Zakka Style book giveaway.  Congratulations to Helen (who blogs at Archie the Wonder Dog) who said:

In addition to the book, I have 5 sampler packs of Aurifil thread to send to some lucky readers.  Congratulations to:

LoBo333May 14, 2012 11:37 AMI've never sewn anything that could be considered zakka, but you-all are making me want to. Thanks for the opportunity to win and thanks for the great inspiration. 
AliMay 17, 2012 7:39 PMThat's such a cute little cloud! I haven't made anything I'd consider Zakka, is it wrong I'm waiting for everybody to finish the sew a long so I can just browse ideas from more brilliant minds than mine before I try my hand at it? ;0 
FrancineMay 14, 2012 11:38 AMLove the mug rug - and finally have to order my copy of the book - the projects look so fun! I had to look up the def. of "zakka" lol but now that I know, I would say that all my projects attempt to be zakka. I love pillows, throws and things that are readily seen by guests.

If you are a winner, please email me with your mailing information and I'll be sure your prize is sent to you ASAP.
