Today is the day I announce the winner of the sewing themed giveaway and may I say:
So many wonderful stories shared of creative and artistic family histories, many of them going back a few generations. Thank you all so much for participating! I'll be hosting another giveaway this Wednesday with a knitting theme so stay tuned...
With a little help from my dear boyfriend, a winner has been randomly chosen and here is the winner of the sewing themed giveaway:
Gill left a wonderful comment about an object that has been handed down to her from generations of cheese-makers:
I have cheesemakers in both sides of my family and while I don't make cheese I do have a cheese borer(not sure of the real name!) used to sample the cheese when it was maturing - just holding it connects me with my great grandparents!
It's great to have a "touchstone" that can connect you with your ancestors =-)
Gill, be sure to e-mail me your mailing address and I will be sending off the giveaway goodies this week.
giveaway goodies to be mailed this week...
Many thanks to all of you that participated in the giveaway - you left really wonderful stories of family ancestors and it's clear that you honor those memories =-)
