Say good-bye...she's gone for good after today. But today is special because it's time to choose a winner for the December NewFO Challenge. I generated a number at random and came up with:

#5--Mary C in WA

Congratulations, Mary C! I've sent you an email, so check your inbox.

Now, you know what I always say...don't despair if you didn't win because the NewFO Challenge is continuing on into 2014. You might say that this 2014 challenge is itself a NewFO! Or not...maybe you're less corny than I am...but there you go. From here on and for the entire year, we'll be playing under the new button right over there on my right side bar. So go ahead and update yourselves.

And I have a whole new raft of prizes in the form of these quilt block lapel pins. There is a different one each month. I think for January we'll be playing for the Amish block...because it's the first month...and "A" is the first letter of the alphabet...and because there's always method in my madness.

So be right back here on January 31st and we'll go another round.

Ooooohhh, I like that pin and your logic sounds perfectly sane and sensible. Mnemonics are the only way to fly for me too.
