Giveaway winner

I can officially state the I am indeed The Queen of Slow Stitching, which has been proven in a very scientific method by the gathering comments from you my lovely readers!  :)

So, the  burning question of the day was 'how many stitches can you do in one minute?' and the average number according to the internet (and you know that if it's on the internet, it just has to be true ;)  ) is.....


....wait for it.....


.....6!


Surprised? I was.....and saddened too, as I could only manage four. I'm counting it as four, but it was only really three and a half. Even then I was racing to get as many done before the timer went off, which means that in reality, I'm even slower. (It's a good job I've got so much stash hidden away, otherwise I might have contemplated giving up as a complete failure!)

Anyhoo, that means the winner of my little giveaway is SoCal Debbie who also managed to do four stitches in a minute. Congrats  Debbie! The chart will be on its way to you soon.

I've decided to spread the love, so to speak, so if everyone who commented could please check their emails later this week, as I will be emailing a little something to you all as a little thank you for taking part.

Until next time...happy stitching!

Rhona

Hi Rhona. I just found your blog thru SoCal Debbie and became a follower. I might be able to do 4 stitches a minute, on a good day, probably average maybe 3 a minute. lol Love the pieces your working on. I have Simple Treasures in my stash along with a zillion more. I also crochet, been crocheting granny squares for 40 years. I love the color combo of your next project. Can you tell me the color names. Looking forward to spending some time reading your posts.

I gave it a try and if it's one color and I don't have to pay attention, I do pretty darned well! If it's having to look at the chart... make sure I'm on track... I think I'm at 3 or 4. haha! No wonder I never get anywhere.
