You are a STAR and a WINNER

I'm sure you are all waiting for the results of my giveaway.... I'm sorry to have kept you waiting the whole day, but I'd promised Maja that she could help me with the draw so we had to do it after she was home from school. But then we had someone over for dinner this afternoon, so when I was gonna do the draw, I was busy preparing for having dinner guests. I hope you understand.

Anyway, after keeping you waiting for so long, I thought I would keep you waiting for a wee while longer... cruel, I know... but I just wanted to show you the hand pieced/ paper pieced star all finished. I ended up making a coaster... as I suggested in my other post. I used two layers from an old flannel nighie after Susie as batting, so it's nice and thick.
I wouldn't look too closely at my quilting... It's awful... it almost looks like the basting is still in... but, hey, it was my first time hand quilting... But then again, the coaster goes quite well with my favourite mug colourwise, don't you think?
Ok, so over to the draw! Here Maja is helping me cut all the entries into separate strips. (Isn't her nightdress cute?? I just love that cow pattern...)
All the entries are in...
Who will be the lucky winner....
Eileen! You won! Congratulations. Please contact me with your address, and I will send you the prize.

And this is what my wee helper did with all the non- winning entries... she shredded them! I think maybe she enjoys using her new scissors...
I would like to thank all of you who took part in my giveaway. I really appreciate your comments.

Maja, You look so cute in your nightdress. Thank you so much for picking ME! I have been reading our mommy's blog about you and your little sister for months now. I hope you like school and your new home.

Tonje.. I am beyond thrilled! This is the best kind of prize to win.. one from somebody I've been reading for a while now.. and I really wanted those adorable slippers. They will remind me of you and my grandma.. she used to make them for us.
And your star is terrific! I DID look closely, and your stitches are fine. I love it.

Så flott at Eileen vant, hun er bare skjønn som blogger. Har du sett den siste quilten hennes??
Ser ut som om Maja har det helt topp og fin i pysjen er hun også.....

Spennende å følge med på trekkingen! Ser du fikk god hjelp av datteren i sin søte nattkjole, herlig jente!
Gratulerer Eileen!
Syns stjernen ser flott ut jeg, passer til kruset ja!
Ha en god natt :)

Welcome back :)
Jeg synes den håndsydde stjernen din ble ganske bra jeg. Med ena litt mer øvelse så blir nok lukekanten flott også. Håndsøm er en av mine favoritter, på den amerikanske måten (uten papir).
Håper du fortsetter med håndsøm :)

hihi, du vet å bygge opp spenningen da:-D ble helt med jeg enda jeg ikke har vært med i trekninga en gang *lol*

Og jeg....hm, hvis jeg skal svare på spm ditt må jeg skrive "jeg er så flink at jeg":-P

men altså, ja jeg har funnet på mønsteret til tunikaen selv, det var moro da:-D

Congratulation to Eileen. Dette var jo artig for Maja. Hun elsker jo sånne oppgaver. Du får hilse Maja å si at jeg syntes hun var flink til å trekke vinneren.
Stjernebrikken ble jo fin den. Du får lage tre til, så har vi hver sin til å sette cognac glasset på, når vi kommer på besøk.
Klem
