from New Zealand. I have emailed her and left her know that she had won and I also told her I find it fascinating that two people who live on opposite sides of this world can love the same designer. This really is a small world.
Now for the bad news. I don't know if this happens to any of you other ladies who have blogs, but I get some of the nastiest emails from ladies I have never met. I don't know why and I can't explain why I have over 500 followers and I have a giveaway for what I think is a very nice pattern and I only have 8 ladies that are interested in it. Have I been nasty to anyone? Have I said something I shouldn't of? Has someone stolen my identity on the internet? I don't know but I think from the sounding of some of these emails I have (or someone posing as me) has been really awful in some way. I don't belong to any message boards and I only belong to a few groups on Facebook that have to do with stitching and I've only posted there a few times at most. This has led me to think I need to shut my blog down. I would welcome any comments on why you think this is happening or if it's happened to you. I will make up my mind in a few days as to whether or not to shut down.
