Granny's Birthday Quilt Give Away Winner

This is Granny at her birthday dinner. I didn't get too stay long because I had so much going on that day but I did get to drop by. Isn't Granny beautiful?
These are just a few of the many cards that Granny received from all of you & her family & friends. Thank you so much for Blessing my little Granny.
Can you tell I love her so much?

*********************
Before you watch the video I would first like to apologize for how I look.
I look horrible! Oh well! Also, I apologize for talking so loud but Granny cannot hear well. Also, I would like to tell you that on the video you will hear me say that I know the winner. I do but only through blogging. My family or friends were not in the drawing even though they have purchased quilts. They chose not to be. Also you will hear Granny trying to tell me that she would give the quilt herself but I had already purchased one from her just for this. She is the sweetest thing. She is my hero!
There are so many that I would like to thank for helping me. There were several who suggested bloggers sending birthday cards to Granny. So many of you have blessed Granny by buying quilts from her. Martha (http://www.caknitter.blogspot.com/ )started this ball rolling by asking to buy the first quilt. Then Mary (http://www.needledmom.blogspot.com/) made the Granny Fan Button for me. All the gifts were amazing.
My best friend Vicki sacrificed her time to visit Granny so she made the video for me. Marlene (http://www.stitchinbythelake.blogspot.com/ ) wrote a beautiful post about Granny's quilts. (I will post this on the sidebar for you to read.) And now Granny is in a newsletter on line ( http://www.sewn.net.au/ )
She is famous! What a blessing she is to all of us especially me.
I know I have left many of you out but all I can say is Thank you to everyone for being great friends & loving my little Granny!
Thank you to everyone but most of all
"Thank you Granny!"
