Guest book winner

Well yesterday was my last day at the gallery. The quilts are now all home, and later today I will try and get my workroom sorted out then the rest of the house will follow. Right now it looks like some sort storage space. I've got mixed feelings about the show ending, but I will post a full report on that when I've caught up on my work.

I've just gone through and counted the entries in my guest book. There were 110 in total. I haven't had a chance to read them yet, but I am looking forward to it. I would also like to thank everyone who did take the time to leave their mark, just having proof that people were there can be very important when I am having a hard time with my work. The comments than are less important than the raw fact that people did come and look at my work and made the effort to leave a record.

So having counted the entries, I could ask the computer for a winning number. Running Linux I used this command
echo $(($RANDOM %110))

Which returned me the answer 52. The winner is probably in the UK (judging from her email address) and is called Stef. I have sent her an email, to tell her what I hope will be the good news. I am sorry I couldn't make all of you winners, I loved meeting you all and chatting about my work. I've had so many strange conversations, and it has been wonderful.

For those of you who didn't make this show, don't panic. I loved doing it and I will be arranging more. I have several leads I will be chasing up over the next week or so. My work will next be seen at a gallery in Scotland, so hopefully that will be better for some of those in the North of the UK. More details to follow.

The draw for the Virtual Show will be Monday 14th April.
