Before I let you all know the winner of my little contest I will show you a few more pictures. The first is a clue that will let you know if you guessed right or not. Most of you did figure it out based on earlier comments I made on SCS FLYBaby thread about my making a trip to an Offray Ribbon outlet. We did go on Thursday of last week. It was better than I even imagined! It was kind of funny in that I went up there with a group of quilters and they were not all that excited about going to the ribbon outlet, but had to humor me as I was the driver! I think we spent the longest amount of time there than we did ant any of our other three; not counting our lunch stop that is.

There was every type of ribbon imaginable sewing types, package wrapping ones and bins of paper crafting ribbons and felt embellishments! It was the picture in the previous post was indeed spools of ribbon. Huge spools of ribbon, 1/4" grosgrain to be exact! Each of those spools measures about 7 inches across and the cost......drum roll please.....$5.00 each!

Now of course since we had driven 45 minutes and got ourselves quite turned and twisted around (okay LOST) trying to find the outlet I had to make my trip worth while. (Everyone nod in agreement please.) So I picked up a few other things.

Lets see....four smaller spools of ribbon; four plastic bags stuffed with odds and ends of assorted ribbons; somewhere around 10 prepackaged bags of ribbons specific to paper crafting; 10 packages of small crocheted flowers; 30 packages of small felt flowers; and a few other other odds and ends. Here is a picture of my stash spread out on my craft room floor. Do you like it? Doesn't really matter because I sure do and it all cost me

........................................................................$30.00. Yep that's all. So back to the winner, the name was drawn randomly by DH who doesn't know any of you from Adam! And the winner is Diane from MN and mom of 5!!!!!!!! What will see get???? She will get to share in my goodies from the ribbon outlet of course! You certainly don't think I can use all of this do you????

Congratulations Diane. I hope you will enjoy your ribbons and flowers. I will try and get them in the mail before I leave for KC Friday.

WOW! Thanks sooooo much! I NEVER win anything so this is a real treat. I would say you could bring my prize to KC and give it to my MN friend that will be attending, but after hearing other's comments, it might not make it here! lol
