A drum roll please....

It is January 31st, and the TEN-MINUTE RUG HOOKING CHALLENGE has been on for its first six months. So it is time for the first drawing for the pocket pack prize. Winners must contact me with shipping information within 5 days to claim their prize. If the claim has not been made in that time, another winner will be selected.

Congratulations to all who are participating in this challenge, making rugs everyday!

The next six-month session will start tomorrow with a drawing for another pocket pack on July 31st, 2010. Enrollment is ongoing and log keeping is your own business. Send me your name and email to be listed in the official list on the sidebar of my blog. And join the group's discussion forum on Rug Hooking Daily HERE.

Here is my son Alexander modeling the grand prize (hooked front and wool back): a 10-minute pocket pack.

Alexander pulled out of a bag the name of the lucky winner. It is Gayle of Dyeing2Hook!

The runner-up prize - a felted applique of a rug hook - goes to Sally Van Nuys of Amherst Antiques and Folk Art.
