Wake up Sunshine! {winner-s}

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post!  I had 131 comments.  I'm still working my way through responding to all of them, but they are so positive and uplifting!

This has been a busy week--I have my second quilty finish for the year (I'll post pics another time ...), I had an extra shift at work and the kids were off school for two days.  This AM Nicholas is going on a campout--in the SNOW.  I've had to beg, borrow, steal and, yes, buy quite a bit of gear for that.

I made a handful of wristlets, since I was reminded how easy it is to do combine steps and make several.  Other than a little bit of time, you might as make more than one :)  Plus, this way I get an extra one and I get to spread the sunshine a little more.  I do like that!

This morning, I got up and copied and pasted all your beautiful comments into my word processor.  This numbered and consolidated them for me.  I printed them all out and cut them apart.  Folded each strip and put it into a basket ... and my kids had some fun ...

Congratulations to #66 , #68 & #126:
