Winners Revealed!

Thank you to everybody who took part in donating beads for the Bloggers Beads Necklace.  Above you can see the diverse range of beads that I received and I think it is fair to say that it will be a challenge to make them all up into a necklace!  Can you see the bead or beads that you sent?

I drew out a name from all the participants that took part and the winner is Jane from Marigold Jam.  I then decided to have another draw just of my friends from abroad that had taken the time and trouble to send beads to the UK, and the winner is Sharon from Sallymomsprouts.  In due course I will send both of you a little handcrafted something!

As a thank you to everyone that took part, I would like to send you all a handwritten letter.  This may take a bit of time but it is something that I intend to do.

Now I need to put on my thinking cap and see how this necklace is going to evolve!

Thank you so much - I will look forward to receiving my little something. I fear my beads might be difficult to incorporate with those other lovely offerings and will be interested to see how you do it! Some interesting beads to work with there.

Yahoo, and thanks to you, Simone. Will watch the post with giddy anticipation for my little something. This was a marvelous idea and now I'm eager to see what you make of the lovely offerings from so many of your blogging sisters. Enjoy the challenge knowing you'll soon be able to circle your throat with the love of all of us.

Yay Jane and Sharon!! Yes, Simone, you have a challenge before you, but it must feel nice to physically be able to touch such real symbols of your friends! Whatever you end up making, it will be beautiful!

Congratulations to Jane and Sharon! You have beads of many types there Simone, it could take a while to work out the best way of using them but I'm sure you will manage it. Good luck!

Hope you get my beads soon! Sorry it took so long for me to get them out to you! I'm sure you will find a way to weave all of the beads together into a wonderful creation that merges bits of all of our creativity with yours.

Congrats to the winners!!

And your snow photo is lovely (and not just because it's a rose bush!). :)
