Results!!!

OH MY!! What a response! I can hardly believe how many entries we received. I am in total awe, and quite frankly feeling like a super celebrity!

This weekend my husband and I spent our evenings going through EVERY comment! We read aloud to each other the fun ones, but mostly had our noses to the grind stone. The Final tally at closing time was 2195 entries!!!
Which if your wondering with all the extra posting to earn extra entries equals to........
7019!
WOW people! That is some serious love!

For those of you that didn't win just a reminder that you can get the pattern! I am getting my website set up but it isn't ready to take orders just yet. You can however e-mail me at elizabeth@lizzyanne.com to place an order.
If you buy 5 or more they are $6
Otherwise 1 is $12
I will send you a paypal invoice so it's quick and simple for both of us.
Be sure to include your address in the email so I can calculate shipping.

I can not tell you how exciting this all is! Oh you don't actually care about my enthusiasm anymore? You just want RESULTS!!

Okay the winner of the quilt is #
351

Liz, I can't tell you how excited Lisa is to have won the quilt. I have to tell you about the phone call I just got from Lisa. I hadn't checked the results yet, but apparently she had.
But she didn't believe it. She says, "Have you checked Elizabeth's blog today?" "No" "I think I won," she says in a bewildered sort of voice..."but you better check to make sure." So I checked and confirmed, yeah looks like you won. "I can't believe I won. There was like over 7,000 entries, but mine was chosen. What do I do?" "Her blog says you email her and gives her email." "Oh, it does? I didn't get that far. I just saw my entry and called you to make sure." So now we have big plans to open the quilt together, etc.
Sorry you don't know her, but I thought you'd want to know, that she is someone with fabulous taste, who LOVES your quilt and she does quilt so she appreciates the time and effort it takes to make something so beautiful. And it seems to slowly penetrating into her brain that she won and she can hardly believe it. I'm so excited that I get to see it in person! Of course, it would have been better to win it myself, but such is life.
Congratulations on your big give away...you obviously have a lot of fans!
luv, Alanna

Valerie said...

So, going to Wal*mart with my husband as our "date" time will not seem as glamorous after you and your dear hubby spending your whole weekend figuring out the winners. Guess I better step up my view on what "get a life" means. My kids tell us we don't have one. ;)
