What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Before I announce the winner of my contest, I just have to say...YOU ARE A BUNCH OF STINKPOTS! ;-) After two years of blogging, I thought I had about a dozen friends and family who check my blog occasionally. You certainly had ME fooled! When I saw the comments rise above 20...I was shocked. When it went past 40, I nearly swallowed my tongue. No-I am NOT kidding.

It was very fun to see where people were from and meet new people (THANK YOU for making yourselves known!) I learned some new things, discovered some great blog, even socked some of your names away for future babies, if ever they come! There are some real beauties out there!

I finished the breadcloth just in time for a photo shoot. As you can see, I appliqued a butterfly to the corner and added rickrack to the edges. Perfect for spring, I'd say. Now...WHO is this butterfly flying to?...?....?....?...?

The winner is...Ellie from Ontario Canada! Ellie, congratulations! Please email your address at sgrbear724(at)yahoo(dot)com and I will mail these goodies out to you A.S.A.P-seems to me spring needs to get to Canada pretty quick.

Thank you to all who participated in this contest and for all of you who visit Renaissance from time to time! I wish I had prizes for all of you. Maybe another day...
