And the winners are...






and Brittany (who is blogless)

I had so much fun that I decided to do a little surprise giveaway to my loyal readers and commenters. I picked out the names of the people that I know comment on a regular basis from the entries and randomly picked two winners from the list to win stuffed animals that were completed last night. The winners of the bonus stuffed animals are:



and Gina


Winners please email me with your mailing address and I will get your prizes shipped as soon as possible.

Barbie seemed to be the most common favorite toy of childhood. I was never all that fond of Barbie for a number of reasons. It was hard to style her hair. It was so thick that all I could really do with it was put it in a pony tail. Barbie's odd chest also made it hard for me to hand sew clothing for her. I was not a very good seamstress in my youth (I am not much better now) and the darting that needed to be done to get anything to fit drove me insane. I preferred horses, stuffed animals, and small muslin rabbits that we called bitty bunnies.

I had a blast with this contest and can't wait for the next one. I have something really fun brewing in my mind.

Whoo-hoooo! That elephant is TOO CUTE.

Mr. P has all sorts of "bed friends" as he calls them, and this will be a welcome addition.

But, uh, you washed those socks first, right? ;)

That was a really nice idea to hold an extra contest for your regular readers. I will remember that for next time.

Anyhow, Hi! I'm around visiting the blogs of people who entered my contest. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you feel welcome to visit again anytime.

Oh, they are all so cute! Glad you posted this, Awesome. I got my daughter to tackle our giant lonely socks laundry basket today (some partners are swimming around together yet far apart in there). She matched up a bunch and then went off to study "the book". Hope I can get my digital camera fired up, will share post of her creations too.

Fun contest, congrats to your winners! Ya lucky dogs (and elephants)

Thank you! I love the teddy bear also, even though I thought I had the panda at first. It will go perfectly in my home. I have a country decorated living room. It will be so sweet in there!

I like your blog too, I will enjoy coming back to visit. :)
