Friday Winner: Freddy and Gwen Collaborate Again!


My Freewheeling Twists and Turns week is past the apex. And it's time to announce the winner of Free Give-Away: Freddy & Gwen Collaborate Again. I believe in doing things simply, using time-honored techniques that still allow for intuitive input.

I announced to the house, (husband and two cats) that it was time to pick a winner. And as my husband and I were 'talking it over'..in this case, over his morning ritual of his Sudoku puzzle, and discussing numerical sequencing and their odds, I simply used the intuitive 'pick a number' technique..in this case from 1 to 100. I had 99
numbers to choose from as we began our talk, but as we finished the conversation, a 100th came in... and not knowing the exact chronological sequencing, I 'let her in the back door' and closed the draw at the incredibly nice number of 100! I mean, what are the odds of that? An even 100 entries!!!

And the winner
is Laurel. Laurel blogs as a single mother of a 9 year old daughter, works full-time, and yet still creates a wonderful assortment of lovely and creative quilts at: Laurel's World in Wisconsin.

Considering the incredibly high number who did not follow the rules and left no connecting email address or link of any kind, and his number not only worked on the first try, but Laurel was one of the dozens of blogs I've been off to visit since receiving 100 comments from my designated 7 to 7 Frugal Friday time sequence, I thought the odds were good ones. Especially, after finding once I re-visited her blog that she lists my
2,500 Free Quilt Patterns in her sidebar ;)

Happy Frugal Friday...with a totally fabulous free book to Laurel! And a big thank you to Eileen Cannon Paulin, President and resident 'Creative Custodian' for Red Lips 4 Courage Communications, , Freddy and Gwen's collaborative books' publishing services and production company for offering this wonderful book to my blog.

Everyone else. Thank you so very much for entering. I've had a blast visiting your blogs and will continue through the list until I've been to every single one of the 100 comments!!!!!
