* giveaway rundown

Posted on July 17th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Random.

OK, the last batch of letters is addressed and ready to be mailed. Whew. I’m thrilled by the response. Total, I’m sending 48 trinkets. I was short a few charms, so hopefully a few of you won’t mind getting patches instead. In fact, I still have some patches if anybody missed out. Given that I had almost 4000 hits (!!!) to my site in the last week, I really didn’t know what to expect. To anyone else considering it, do it! It’s really fun to get all the email from your readers. (And a few super nice people are sending real mail!)

48 is a lot of emails to keep track of, so if you don’t get yours in a week or so, let me know.

[Edit: I’m out of trinkets.]

  3. Julie Says:

    I got my patch on Friday. It’s great–thank you. I actually have sewn more this spring and summer than I have in many years, so it feel like I’ve been awarded a merit badge. Thanks again.

    I received my patch today–thank you so so much! I think I may incorporate it into a bag. I will definitely send pics when I figure out the perfect project. This was a really thoughtful idea. I’ll have to figure out what I can send out on my anniversary. You’ve started a whole new trend!
