Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

Time to announce the give-away winners! Actually, I'm a day late, but I'm sure my winners won't complain. The winner of my Grow Your Blog Post fabulous prize is Terry. Terry has two blogs! You can check out her quilt projects at Country Lady Quilts or read about her country lifestyle in I'm A Country Lady At Heart. Maybe she will post a photo of what she makes with her Bali Crackers.

The two winners of a fabulous pattern of their choice from my friend Karen at QuiltLily Designs, offered in Part 2 of my Cape Cod Weekend blog, are Hollie and Kat.  

Ladies, send your thanks to my husband Mike who served as my official random number generator (LarryPug declined to officiate).

In case you are wondering about the origins of the phrase, Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner, according to A popular story about the origin of this phrase is that in Las Vegas you could get a nice chicken dinner for less than $2.00. Since winning an average bet would make you over $2.00, the two were equated as being approximately the same value. If you won, you could buy a chicken dinner. (Blogger's note: obviously, this was a long, long time ago!)

Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. Thanks Mike! ;-) Nancy, I use that phrase all the time! Now I know where it came from. Yes, that was a long time ago in Vegas. Went two years ago and it's more like $20! I think your area pulled the winning ticket for snow this year. Haha! Sorry I couldn't resist.

  2. I am so excited to have won this give away. Thank you so much Can't wait to see it in person.

  3. Thank you to Mike! I'm so excited, I never win anything! Can't wait to get my sewing room unpacked and to make Flourish!
