On our last Fifth Friday Festival of Fabulousness, we had four, count ‘em, four competitions!
The comments have been counted, the pins have been pricked, the jokes have been chuckled at and I’m pleased to announce the winners!
First off we had the chance to win a ton of Pinterest Swag! All you had to do was comment on one of the Pins on the many MrXStitch Pinboards – simple huh? Congratulations to April Koehler Mottram for being picked by the Random Generator. I’ll be in touch to sort out your Pinterest Parcel!
Next up we had the chance to win the groovy new Embroidery book from Mollie Makes – read our review here - and all you had to do was tweet us and you’d be in with a chance. Congratulations to @CarlaRTOATSBlog for being the lucky winner!
We also had a chance to win the Liberty Book of Simple Sewing (reviewed here) and all you had to do was tell us a joke! The winner was Saz with this cracker: “I should stop these sewing jokes… I’m running out of good material.”
I was particularly pleased with the quality of the jokes – here’s a few for your amusement.
- From Caroline Symonds: “Why do seagulls live near the sea? Because if they lived near the bay, they’d be called bagels.“
- From Patricia: “The urge to sing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is just a whim away.“
- From Michelle Kingdom: “So two guys were playing chess when one of them said “Let’s make this game a little more interesting.” So they stopped playing chess.“
- And finally, from Cat Bergman: “I have a friend who composes tunes about sewing machines. She’s a Singer Songwriter.“
Good gags, and always useful when you’ve not got a good joke to hand.
And then finally, a competition with nine pairs of tickets to the Handmade Fair up for grabs. All you had to do was tweet and after pulling them all together, the random generator picked @BedfordClanger as the winner of the Full Experience Tickets!
And the eight other winners of a pair of shopping tickets were:
Congrats to all of you – I shall be in touch about how to get your tickets!
What a bumper bonanza that was! Thanks to everyone who took part and fear not, there’s another Fifth Friday on the horizon in October, so there’ll be plenty more things to win then!
Until next time, keep stitching!
