A Reminder and and Update
As I wait to hear back from one of the May winners to confirm her mailing address and let me know how many blocks she’d like to keep, it seems like a good time to remind everyone who wants to win blocks that you have to check the Block Lotto site or your Email and get back to me within 2 days … or a new name will be chosen and you won’t win after all.
If you cannot be available or won’t have access, please let me know BEFORE the drawing so we can doublecheck that I have your address and it’s correctly formatted and you can tell me how many of your own blocks you’d like to keep … just in case you win.
This isn’t like a blog giveaway where, if you are slow in responding, it only holds up one person from sending you one package. For example, this month, 30 quilters will be mailing blocks to four winners. When I don’t hear from one of the winners, it’s means no one can send out their blocks and none of the other winners can start receiving their winnings.
Because one of our winners, Karen, is pretty new and this is her first win, and because I know some people don’t have web access on the weekend, I’m going to extend the usual 48 hours to 72 hours and hope I hear from her first thing Monday. Otherwise, I’ll be choosing a replacement winner. It would be a shame to miss out on the opportunity to send the first set of blocks to a winner in South Africa …
Thanks to everyone who made blocks, and especially the other winners, to waiting one more day. Once I hear from Karen, I should be able to send out the mailing info pretty quickly. If you didn’t win, but were in the drawing, you may want to check this website and/or email from me on Monday … just in case I don’t hear from Karen and you’re the new winner.
For grins, if you have read this far and it’s easy for you to do so, leave me a comment on this post so I know you actually did see it and read it. I confess … some days, I wonder.
