And the winner is...

Many, many thanks to everybody who visited during the SMS Giveaway Day.  I really enjoyed reading all 158 of your comments and I was delighted that so many people signed up to follow Sashiko Started It.
I know some people became followers to gain an additional entry in the giveaway and that's fine but I hope most of you will stay around and enjoy what I've got to share about my journey with Japanese textiles, sewing techniques and the whole of the country of Japan itself.
I would love to hear from you about your knowledge and experiences in those areas too, maybe you'd like to feature as a "Guest Blogger" on here?

Anyway, enough words and on to the results.  I asked my scrumptious grandson, Sam, to pick a winner out of my magic sashiko bag

 and the name he pulled out is, "Look, Nanny, look...'s  BEE  DAMON!"

Why I'd like to visit Japan? Well, if I had to count all the reasons, we'd still be sitting here without getting any sleep 8D No, really. I've been interested in most Asian cultures since I was a little lad. Among the things I like most about Japan would be the food - as a vegetarian in Germany (Where meat is like... daily food) I found some Japanese dishes to be fresh and tasty for me. So when I finally get to visit Japan, I will eat out and enjoy it. =) And I absolutely love your giveaway! I'm not letting my thumbs go until the 20th! 8D
Congratulations Bee Damon,  please get in touch by email and let me have your postal address and I'll get your goodie parcel in the post immediately.
And very many thanks again to everybody who took part, I hope you had a lot of fun even if you didn't win, I know I did.  A big thank you too to Sewmamasew too for organising the whole thing so well.


  1. Congratulations to Bee Damon who won the fantastic Japanese goodies. You will love Japan, I know because I just came back from there. Thanks Lis for a fun giveaway - Enjoy the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I will see you there.
