We've drawn the winners for our word contest!! YAHOO!!!
I've always been a sucker for word puzzles and now it's obvious that I'm not alone!! We had SO MANY entries it's taken us a few hours to go over all of them & count letters in long words & phrases!
First, I have to mention our favorites (whether they won or not!):
"straw cookies...yuck, ten loopy jars & fairy tale ways" from Karin
Pat's "pink rose & pace yourself"
"A jar of pink flowers" from Lisa Leimone, which we thought may win the longest phrase but someone else had one with 3 more letters.
Ruth Berke's "no flakes & walk, run, fly"
Karen Martin's "a asocial qwerty rip-off junky"......yes, it doesn't make much sense & has a made-up word....but I think Karen might have been describing someone who was giving her a bad time! LOL!!!
Cathie Dein's "Fleur in Pot" is so pretty!
Becky Shafer & Betty Dobberpuhl sent their words in crossword puzzle form.... YIKES!
"tranquil space" came from Janelle Huntsman.................. Ahhhhhhhhhhh..... may have to hang that in the studio!
"quilts for joy" came from Stina Blomgren..... and yes, even though English isn't your first language everything was spelled beautifully!
Several of you included "quilt fairy".... unconsious or consious wishes for magical help???
Arlene Forney's "craft fools in quirky yap" didn't make sense but still managed to sort of describe all of us girls here at Crabapple Hill !! LOL!!!............. especially Cyndy! HA-HA-HA!
Anyway... thanks to all of you! I really am planning on using your words for this & that as the years go by.......I'm saving ALL of them! You've made me a happy girl!
