 First of all, I'm here to announce that I won a giveaway!

The wonderful, mystical
Magic Love Crow,
 aka Stacy,
had a giveaway
which is a very sweet idea.

The prize was a pair of 
hand-knitted washcloths,
which Stacy's mother had knitted
in pretty, pastel colours.

I borrowed this photo from Stacy's blog,
as I forgot to take any before I sewed them  together.
Thank you, Stacy!

I can't knit.
I think of knitters as being up there 
with concert pianists
and orthopedic surgeons.
It's a kind of magic.

So I was delighted to win these 
pretty squares of hand knitted magic.
They were not to be sullied by
dirty water.

They are much too precious.

 I made them into 
a big, soft doll pillow
for my sleeping dolls.

As an extra special surprise

Magic Love Crow
offered one of her 
wonderful Aceos.

This one!

It's called
The Fortune Teller.

I love it!
The rich colors and the elegant pose.
I'm going to frame it 
and hang it in the 

Second of all,
I have the name of the winner 
from the

I wrote out everybody's name.
I gave each name a number.
And then use a Random Number Generator
to pick the winner.

It chose number ten.

Step up, Number Ten,
Deborah Adams!

You win my little cloth Alice doll.

Get in touch, and I'll send her off to you!
