THANK YOU ALL FOR HELPING TO MAKE THE FIRST EVER ES ANNUAL CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY A HUGE SUCCESS!
I am astounded and immensely grateful for all the interest and support!
Now, on to the good stuff: I added up all the entries, excluding only those few that had no contact information at all (e-mail OR blog address), and numbered them all in the order in which they were received. I then went to Random.org website, to the free Integer Generator, and put in the number range, and got a randomly picked number back. This is the first time I've ever had cause to use this service, but I can see why it's so popular amongst bloggers, of all kinds, for picking Giveaway winners!
Here's a screenshot and a close-up of the winning number:
And eligible entry 22 is: *cue the drum roll please LOL*:
Monique initially had some trouble entering, so she e-mailed her information for me, and I posted her comment for her, as I also did for the few other people who had trouble. Monique, I'll be sending you an e-mail to get your mailing address shortly. I hope that these stitchy goodies will find a happy home with you this Christmas :)
For everyone else who entered - thank you for your support! I really wish I could send you all a little stitchy something Please come back to visit next year, for the Second Annual Eglantine Stitchery Christmas Giveway! As far as I know now, it will run on the same dates, but in a new year: September 21st, 2012 to October 12th 2012! Just in time to avoid the prophesized end of the world in December 2012 :)
HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
