Giveaway Day results!

OMG!! I was absolutely blown away by the amount of entries I had for the Sew Mama sew Giveaway Day!
Wow, you lot REALLY wanted to get your hands on that pile of fabric!!
I never, in my wildest dreams, expected to get as many as 1220 entries! So please excuse me for not being able to reply to any of you. It was all I could do to read them all!
And a very big welcome to all my new followers. I do hope you will stick around now the giveaway is over, and I promise I will try my best to inform, inspire and entertain you!

Well, you certainly came up with a lot of great WORDS! Reading your comments was like reading a post-modern, tone poem!
Here are some of my favourites:
There were clever ones -
discombobulated, onomatopoeia, mellifluous, loquacious, perpindicular, spurious, conundrum, prestidigitation, palindrome, colloquial...
Funny ones -
piggersnout, narly, gnomes, tooter, booya, bodacious, boobilicious, wobble, freaknoodles, kaddywampus, chimichangas, sponge, freakinfrog...
Ones I had to google -
sassafras, sesquipedalian, selah, scolecophagous, bibliobibuli, eunoia, copasetic, caoutchouc, syzygy, hendiadys, oubliette...
VERY long ones -
antidisestablismentarianism, pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch...
And just lovely ones -
sherbert, butterbean, pumpernickel, pistachio, ragamuffin, whimisical, kismet, ethereal, picallili, persnickety...

Thank you so much for sharing all your amazing words!

And now you would probabaly like to know who actually won the giveaway, right?
It is number 69! Congratulations Judith!
I will email you separately for your address, Judith.
Commiserations to the rest of you :(

And because it upsets me to post without a nice crafty photo, here is a scrappy block I just finished for the Tag Square Bee. This one is for Monfrank, who asked for lots of green with a little red and orange. The block was inspired by Rachel's scrappy pincushion.
 Back with more crafty stuff soon!
