Voting Bribe

In July, Alma Allen stopped by to express her interest in the challenge and to ask me to let her know when photos were up because she wanted to take a look. And she did indeed stop by to see them. "These are wonderful! It will be hard to choose just one," she said. And she promised to send some prizes.


She kept her promise.


Alma and Barb sent six packs of charm squares, two pin cushions, and a copy of A Schoolgirl's Work.
So remember when I said "everyone's a winner?" Everyone will receive a Moda Wild Rose charm pack. Second prize will be a charm pack + a pin cushion. First place will be a charm pack + A Schoolgirl's Work + the $10 gift certificate I promised. But wait...that still leaves a pin cushion. 


Since people have been so reluctant to vote, I am offering the pin cushion as incentive. When voting closes on October 4, I will draw a name from among the people who have voted. How's that? But remember no voting in the comments. Please send an email, per the instructions.


Now, there's nothing wrong with entrants telling their blog readers they should vote. (No bribing them with Moda charm squares, however.) 


PS: Yes, I know I spelled whimsical wrong yesterday. As Helen Killer herself says, "it's an homage to this."

Kristen! I can't believe she never sent you that. She didn't send it to me, she had your address. Sigh. It's not like I asked for it; Elizabeth Newlin OFFERED. That's disappointing.
