And the winner is.....

Good Morning Friends!
I arose bright and early this a.m. because I have to go to work at the hospital :( my boss is on vacation....

But...
before I left for work, I thought I'd go ahead and get a task out of the way.....So I typed all the names of the people that left a comment on my "Birthday Giveaway" post that wanted to be included in the pot, printed them out, cut them up, folded them up and put them in the bowl (borrowing from Edgar) DESTINY:


There they all are....is your name in the bowl of DESTINY?

Now...
this is the time where I get a little sick to my stomach. Why? Because I want you all to win.....there were so many sweetly written comments.....oh yikes....well no use fretting over it ~ do it quick like pulling off a band-aid ~ here's the pull:

There is the winner.... I wonder who it is? so before I either throw up or soil myself I opened up the square of paper and....


I can't believe my eyes!


SHARON CRESCENT....well what do you know?! The bowl of DESTINY has spoken! And to prove that Sharon is a deserving winner here is the sweet comment that she left to me (it was among many that brought tears to my eyes):
"Happy Birthday Vonna!!! Such a beautiful piece and finishing! I think my favorite thing about you is your positive attitude and your faith. I read your blog to be encouraged and I always leave with a smile. Happy 4th of July, girlie!! Sharon Crescent"


Pretty sweet, eh?!
Congratulations Sharon! I hope that you will enjoy my little project in your home :)
Until next time....
I'm stitching a new project!!! And I'll be keeping my "hands to work and heart to God"! Thank you again to all my faithful followers, readers, friends and family that read my blog. I truly mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say that your place in my life has changed me irrevocably. Have a great rest of the week! I'll be back when I finish this project :)
Hugs and love,
Signature
