Let’s see . . . what should I tell you about today?
I could tell you about:
A trip to Harvard. I felt smart there.
A historic mansion in Boston. Very posh.
Matisse in His Studio. The artist and some of the artifacts that inspired him.
I could tell you tons about the Boston Marathon.
Inspiring runners of all different abilities.
Inspiring because they were so fast.
Inspiring because they kept a sense of humor.
Inspiring because they were ordinary folk doing something extraordinary–these young women, who we went to watch, were two of 30,000!
And folks who supported every single one.
I could go on and on, and tell you about spring coming to the North Country of upstate New York, or the opening of our local ice cream shop, or I could give you updates on weaving, quilting, all kinds of crafting.
But I won’t. I’ll stop being a tease and I’ll tell you what you’ve been waiting to hear, eager to hear . . .
Who wins the hand-woven key fob?!
We had lots of entries, from all over the world, and I do wish I had dozens of key fobs to give away. But I had to use my random number generator to choose one of you.
I love pushing the button on my random number generator—the suspense, the anticipation, the thrill!
My random number generator said I should give the key fob to Judy, at New England Garden and Thread!
But I enjoyed hitting the button and the suspense, the anticipation, the thrill, so much, I hit the button again—what the heck!
And the generator said I should give another key fob to Jean, at One Small Stitch. (This one is sort of daunting—Jean is a weaver of many, MANY years experience! She has been supportive of my learning to weave since even before I took my first workshop.)
So, Judy and Jean, if you will email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, with your addresses, I’ll send your gift!
And you can choose–either the key fob I originally pictured or this brown and turquoise one I’ve made since. I have two of each.
Everyone else, take heart. I like giving stuff away and, before long, I bet my fingers will be itching to hit that button and choose another random number!
