The Bloggy Diet Raffle Prizes

OK then, you wanted it, so here we are. The prizes! I'm unsure about how to do this, so have grouped the prizes into 'lots' - hope you think this is alright. I'm a bit concerned that there are 9 lots and 12 of us joined in, but I've grouped some together. We won't all win a prize - the idea at the start was that the more weight you lose, the more tickets you get and the more chances you have to win. It could well be that you win more than one prize. I am also aware that I've lost a lot of weight and could win all the prizes (Ooh, goody, no big postage bill for me then!), but I'm not going to let myself win more than one. Of course, I may not even win one, you never know. Tis the very nature of raffles.

First up, 8 big fat skeins of Fibre Spates Blue Faced Leicester. Love this. Want to win this.

Next is Nimu Yarn and Thistleknits yarn. Love these, want to win them.

Lot number 3 - Rowan and something pink and silky, the name of which escapes me. These are gorgeous and I want to win them.

Number 4 - Felt studio hand spun and Posh Yarn. These were my donation. I love them both and really would like to win them back.

More delicious sock yarn and some very lovely beads in a handy box, beadalon something or other - sorry, bit thick about beads. But guess what, I want to learn and love the sock yarn so want to win these too.

Knit picks yarn with a very pretty baby cardigan pattern and a kit to make your own poppies. I like poppies, love the yarn - don't have any babies (cardi would not fit 15 year old son) so would make something else with the yarn. But it's so soft, I want to win this too.

OOOOOOhhhhhh, fabric. Love fabric. Want to win this too.

More fabric - particularly fond of this lot and want this to join my very small fabric stash.

And finally a Della Q needle case and 2 sets of bamboo sock needles to put in it. And I so need this prize. A bit of organisation in my life would be good....


So there we are. All the prizes. Like them? Want them? Well you know what you have to do.

Stop eating the chocolate, cake, biscuits and sweets. Stop eating crisps, cheese, sausages and bacon. Go shopping and look for cottage cheese and fat free yoghurt. Life is hard sometimes isn't it?!

I will draw the raffle soon after New Year's day 2010. Good luck one and all.

Oh my goodness are those hippos on that fabric? EEEEEEEEK! I must be strong - well, until Christmas anyway.

Oh that's just the encouragement I needed! I also want/need/have to win all of those delicious prizes!

So, that probably means I shouldn't open the wine tonight.

Wow, what a compilation of the pretties! Maybe there is still time for me to chuck off a couple more pounds...

Yes, yes, me, me! Okay, forget the Christmas baking... the kids will have to eat celery with me, because if I bake the cookies, I am helpless and must eat them... But I want that top green yarn prize, so will be strong....
