Well folks, the sun has set on another craft-filled day. It's time once again to draw names for our giveaway. The contest was a little different this time. Even I could tell that. The excitement has been building all week and the comments have been pouring in. A record number I might add. Somehow FREE fabric is very tempting to the crafty sort like me. Yes, I might have struck a nerve. I think I may be catching on! :)
Before I draw the names there are several necessary "thank yous" in order:
First, a big thanks to Charlie and Lindsay of Hawthorne Threads for generously donating one of the gift certificates to their shop. I've spoken with Charlie several times and have to say, the level of communication and service they provide for their shop is amazing. Congrats you two on a job well done! I'm a customer for life!
Second, I want to speak to everyone who reads and follows my blog. I truly appreciate all the comments you leave on every post. Whether you're just passing through from a link on another blog or checking in with every post, you are the reason I strive to create. I wouldn't be here if you weren't holding me up with all your love and support. Gush, gush, tear...
And thirdly, the ultimate thank you to who else, but YOU would be to draw the names and give away the goodies. So here goes...
The winners of the week 3 giveaway, out of 392 comments, picked by the random number generator at random.org, are:
#330, Teri, who said:

What a great shop. They have lots of lines I hadn't even heard of before. Thanks!
Congratulations to both of you! Please contact me so I can send your gift certificate code to a valid email address. Here's a hint on how to contact me: my email link is on my blogger profile page!
I tried my best to reply to every entry that came in, but after about 200 it was just too much to keep up with. I'm sorry to the folks whos comments were numbered 201 and up for not personally getting in touch with you.
Everyone please stop over to Hawthorne and say hi to Charlie and Lindsay for me! I'll see you back here tomorrow for the 4th and final giveaway announcement.
