I really, really love these giveaways and the opportunity afforded to give something back to our loyal readers, or in this case to one of our loyal readers.  But that's exactly the problem.  While many thousands of readers have participated, there is and can be only one prize and we'll announce that lucky winner tomorrow.

Unfortunately, however, we have only one machine and this giveaway has seen the biggest and widest participation yet by our readers.  So to say thank you to everyone for participating and as a bit of a surprise PRE-consolation prize, we have decided to give away one of our most popular bag patterns which is sold normally for $6.95, absolutely FREE.
