We Have A Winner!

I know all three contestants have been on pins and needles (how appropriate, right?) to see who would win my vintage Singer attachment giveaway. Well, the waiting is over, the random number generator came up with number 2 so the winner is Tors, of Girl Meets Wolf! Hooray! This is only fair, and restores balance to the universe, because I won a contest on Torie's blog (when it was Welsh Pixie) and have been using the bright handmade bag I won to hold my knitting (and unknitting and reknitting ...) lately. But I didn't cheat, I really did use the random number generator, although I'm too techno-lame to publish the proof here.

Now, I think vintage Singer attachments are the greatest thing since sliced bread, but maybe the thin turnout for my giveaway indicates they are an acquired taste? I'll try to come up with something of more general appeal for my 100th post. After I come up with 29 more posts, of course.

Can't have a post without pictures, so here's my grandmother:Ella

and my generation of her descendants from our recently concluded family reunion.

  1. beautiful photo of your grandmother, and all the descendents.

  2. That's a gorgeous photo of your grandmother, but what is going on at the back of her hair?

  3. I was just saying to my housemate this morning that it was serendipitous as you'd won my giveaway earlier in the year! I've dropped you a mail back with my address, thanks again!

  4. Good question, Jane. I have no idea. A giant bow? Storage for a spare shoe?

  5. Beautiful grandmother. I think that is a lamp behind her, as I can see the light on the wall from that.

  6. long time no blog KC... you there?
