And the winners are.......!

Before I show you who the winners of my giveaway are I expect I should show you the prizes, right?
First up, the stitched item. I stitched whenever I had a chance this weekend in order to get this finished by today. Although the stitching is now completed, I haven't had the time for the final finishing. This will be done within the next few days. I've set myself a deadline to have this mailed out by the end of the week.
This will be a pinpillow when completed. It's resting on the fabric I'll be using for the finishing. The design is from The Sampler Girl and is titled Busy Nothings and as the pattern reads, is inspired by Jane Austen's verse from Mansfield Park that reads:
It was a quick succession of busy nothings.

The Sampler Girl Busy Nothings
I changed up a couple of the colours required in this because I didn't have what was needed in my stash. 

Second prize: Some finishing fabrics from my local fabric store and a package of adorable bug buttons.

Third prize: A pair of bunny scissors and some retro buttons.

Sorry I didn't get these pics up earlier. After I announced the giveaway I came down with a nasty case of bronchitis so I didn't feel like doing much of anything. A good dose of antibiotics and cough syrup has me on the mend now and I'm feeling much better.

Now for what you've all been waiting for! I decided to use a sequence number generator to pick the numbers for me. This way none of the numbers get put back in the pot for draw 2 and 3.
Here's the sequence it picked. As it says, the numbers are generated from left to right across the columns. If you click on the pic you can read this better.

So are winners are:

First prize: comment #34 - Daffycat
Second prize: comment #2 - Beth
Third prize: comment #26 - Mindi

Ladies if you could please email me your snail mail address I promise I'll get these off to you by the end of the week. You can find my email in my profile. Keep in mind that Canada Post doesn't break any speed records with its mail. Your parcel should arrive in 2-3 weeks.

Thanks to all of you for participating in my giveaway. I enjoyed hearing how you love to spend your summers. It seems there are a lot of gardeners out there. I'm not sure if there are any gardens left though after all this heat! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

  7. Hi Lynn,

    Well, congrats to the winners of your draw.
    If it couldn't be me then I'm glad it's them.

    The first prize is going to be lovely when
    it's all finished off. Love the colours in it
    and the whimsical bit of the quote from
    Mansfield Park. The fabric on the left of
    the picture for the second place draw is
    really, really pretty. Love those owls and
    birds and the colours and the shading.

    Glad to hear that you're feeling better
    after your nasty bout of bronchitis.
    Hope Clarisse nursed you to the best
    of her abilities and helped you to feel
