The winners

Hi Guys, we are all a bit under the pump at chez Ric Rac this morning.
The big 100th is finally here. Actually Granny turned 100 on Wednesday.
The quilt is finished and wrapped, the kids have been washed and ironed, I got some new hair (as you do) and we are almost ready.

In crafty news we have two winners of the Pre-project giveaway. There was no fancy staging of the draw - we just chopped the comments into a fruit bowl and pulled out the names as Mr Ric Rac looked on with a bit of a " this really has to happen NOW????" kind of look on his face.

From Team Selvedge the winner is Christie of Pigeon Pair and from the comments, the winner is Nannette Merrill and daughters of Freda's Hive.
Yay !!!
Send me your details guys and I'll be in touch tomorrow

Granny Boo
( because she played peek-a-boo with the grand kids when they were small and the name has stuck right through to the great grand kids.)

Born in 1908 , a childhood without cars or electricity and now ...... can you imagine the changes she has seen? One hundred years - it kinda blows my mind.

Big project tomorrow (shes says with some trepidation)


  1. Oh my god, it's so weird that it's saturday there already! Still enjoying my friday night here ....

    (sorry, I never could get to grips with the world time differences!)

    Anyway - Happy 100 to one and all! 100 years old blows my mind too - not that that's hard, bearing in mind the whole time thing ...)


    ps. There is a little RSS thingie down at the bottom of my blog. Will that not do??

  2. Congratulations to the winners. WOW, 100 years... What an amazing span of history to have witnessed. It IS mindblowing...

  3. Good luck with the big day Jodie. I hope it all goes to plan and Granny loves the quilt. Nice pic too!

  4. Hope that you have a great time! I'm sure that Granny will LOVE her quilt!! Good to hear that the kids are washed and ironed as well!! We have a 4 year old party to attend today... not nearly as exciting as 100! We've had rain for two days straight and the place we're visiting is a brand new house... NO GRASS... two days of rain! Interesting!! Hope your day goes well!

  5. How lucky is your family to have a grandparent reach 100 years, very special day for all. I'm sure the quilt will be adored. Enjoy the day and cherish every moment!

  6. Is that Miss Eloise on Granny's lap? Poor Granny looks like she is undergoing the same nasty skin treatment I had to do for the C word four years ago. I had to use Efudex for three weeks, and it burned and hurt like you-know-what, but did remove the cancerous cells - along with lots of innocent healthy cells. My face looked just like Granny's for about six weeks. Happy 100th!

  7. My internet is being bad so I hope this posts only once. Happy Birthday to Granny. How incredible is 100 years! You are so blessed to still have her spirit and experience with you to celebrate.

    I'm super excited!!! I am one of your winners. And I feel very bratty spoiled because I've already had a Jodie prize! Though not spoiled enough to pass!! Never. Thank you Jodie. Have a lovely lovely day.

  8. Did you know that by age 12, today's children have received as much information as their grandparents received over their entire lifetimes? At age 12! Can you imagine what it's going to be like in another generation?

    Can't wait for the big reveal tomorrow! I hope granny loved her quilt as much as we did!

    Two Cheese Please

  9. Hi Jodie! I gave you a blog award if you'd like to stop by my blog and see!
