Ooh, this is my 200th blog post! Yet another milestone reached – I can’t believe I’ve written 200 posts; it’s amazing how it all adds up…
Here’s a taster of my amigurumi polar bear. He’ll get a full post of his own with more photos, more details and some interesting polar bear facts, but here’s a pic to keep you going for tonight:
This polar bear is the latest design for my AquaAmi collection. I’ve never seen a toy polar bear in the standing position before, but to me this is the classic polar bear pose, so it was the obvious choice for my design.
Now back to the real subject for this post: I want to thank everyone who entered my 2nd blogiversary contest. Your comments were so kind and thoughtful – you really know how to make a girl feel special. Over the next week or so, I’ll go through all the comments and make a note of all your suggestions and check out all your blogs too – I’m sure I’ll discover some new (to me) gems this way 🙂
After sifting through an amazing 153 comments on the contest post, I’ve filtered them into 2 numbered lists in Word – one for the pattern entries and one for the mouse entries. As I’ve had 90 entries for the pattern and only 53 entries for the mouse, I’ve decided to commemorate this 200th post by drawing an extra winner for the pattern contest – yay!
I’m using the Random.org to select the lucky winners from my Word lists:
So without further ado, the two pattern winners are:
- #47 Barbara Liedtke
- #85 falwyn
Ladies, I will e-mail you both to notify you personally and to find out which pattern you’d each like to select for your prize.
And the PocketAmi mouse goes to:
- #12 Josefin
Josefin, I’ll be e-mailing you to get your mailing address so I can send your mousey out to you – I hope you’ll give him a good home in Sweden 🙂 Please post a picture of him on your blog after he gets to you!
Congratulations to all three winners! And thanks to all the other entrants too – you’ve given me some great ideas to take me into year 3 of PlanetJune.
