And the winner is

I am overwhelmed by the response on my 200th blogiversary. 73 comments when I printed it out today. Gosh........ There was a lot of "old" familiar bloggers and also some new ones. It is always fun to meet new bloggers. Perhaps this is one way to get the lurkers out of their cabinets LOL I appriciate every word you have written, I'm even blushing over the nice words you are saying. Me a quilt idol (somone mentioned that in their comment) ...........no way......I'm just an ordinary crazy quilt lady from Norway who loves my hobby. Some also "blame" (LOL) for being responsible for they starting to blog, but isn't that fun :) I also pushed another one yesterday to start blogging after her comment on my blog. So please visit Gudrun from Iceland on her blog and wish her welcome to blogland. I am sure she have a lot to tell about Iceland and the quilters there. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH for all the nice comments on my 200th blogiversary. I wish I could have made a drawstring bag for all of you, but 73 , sorry I don't have time for that. Have to sew!!!!!!

And who will be the winner of my drawstring bag. I have started to sew it together. But will not show it yet. Give me some days and it will be finished.

I have printed all comments early this morning. And cut them out one by one and placed them in my chrystal bowl
and shouted: "Lena, please come and help me"
She picked one paper from the bowl.....

and the winner is
drumroll please
and the winner is

Tanya from Japan.
WOW....my drawstringbag is flying all over to Japan.
So Tanya please email me you adress.
Congratulations to you
And thank you all other who placed a comment.
Please come back and visit me
Have a nice day.
Saying for today:
Winners are like tea bags...
They get stronger the longer they're in hot water.

Happy Blogiversary. I really enjoy reading your blog too, and see what fun things you have to show us for the day. Your bag is gorgeous. Congrats to Tanya for winning the gift. I am thinking about doing a drawing like that too, but want to make the package ready before I do, because otherwise the winner will have to wait way too long!
