Well, choosing the winner of my giveaway was not as exotic as I might have planned, given that I am distracted by my forthcoming show.
I first put all the names, in large letters, on an A4 sheet, intending to put it up somewhere and throw a dart. As we don't have a dartboard, and I didn't want to throw darts at the house, or one of my precious trees, I put the paper on the grass. It was windier than I'd've liked, so I had to weigh it down with some pebbles.
Mmmmmm.... we don't have any darts either... will this do?
One of my old 'pottery' tools. Appropriate, as I have given up pottery and may as well throw them all away.
Oops.... I'm not very good at this..... and had to have several tries to actually hit the paper.
Congratulations Patty Szymkowicz , your prize will be posted as soon as I have your address.
Thanks to all who participated. I appreciate that you are still there, out in Blogland, and there will be other giveaways I'm sure.
