And the winner is.........

Today I have enjoyed visiting all the blogs in the OPAM challenge. Kris have made a spread sheet where we list all finished projects.
But now when visiting you I have discovered several things:
Some of you have not put the badge nor the monthly list in the sidebar. Have you regretted joining this challenge. Remember both Kris and I are using time to visit every blog and look for your finishes. So if you don't want to join please let us know and we remove you from the challenge.

Some have the badge, but not a monthly list. Remember that when we visit your blog in the end of the month it is what's listed in the monthly list that counts as a lottery ticket. So please make the monthly list to make our visits more easy.

Some of you have the badge one place and the monthly list faaaaaaaaaaar down at the sidbar. Please put he monthly list and the badge together.

And some blogs I have visited has not reported finishes or listed them in their monthly list. But I see on your blog that you have finished projects. Don't you want to be in the draw? Do not expect Kris and me to look through every post to find your finishes. You have to make it a little bit easy for us. We have a lot of blogs to visit.

But now over to the positive SMILE:

I have had a great time visiting your blogs. You are all so creative and make such wonderful things and write such wonderful posts. Sorry I have not had time to comment on every one.
Looking through 280 blogs takes a little time of my day. But want to tell you I have enjoyed every blog I have visited.

Some of you does only have one finish and some of you have many. But the main goal is to have fun doing this and to be proud about one finish as well as many finishes. And I guess many have done like me...........started several new projects too. And that is also allowed. We are having fun aren't we.

Last month we counted 493 finishes. This month we counted 479 finishes, and remember february is a short month. I know there is several of you that had finished more if the month had been longer, like me. I have two almost finished projects today. And this gives us a total of unbelievable 973 finishes. I wonder how many we will have in desember ????

And now it's time to announce the february OPAM winner

And the winner is
Anette S at Sunshine Yellow

and this is what she wins

A Tilda stitchery with embroidery thread and cute angel buttons.
Hope you will like this prize.
Please send me a mail with your adress and I put it in the post for you.

Saying for today:

Winning has always meant much to me,
but winning friends has meant the most.
