September Rudolph Days Winner

We had 48 fabulous entries. Thanks to all of you for taking part and making Rudolph Days so special. We are a small group of posters but we are mighty! The beauty of staying smaller has given us the bonus of getting to know each other over time. If you stop by and visit the other posters here, they stop by and visit you! We create virtual friendships with crafters all over the world.

Sadly, we have lost one of our regular posters. Kath Schoefield at Plain & Simple blog took part in the Rudolph Days Challenge for many years. In late summer, Kath passed away and is sorely missed. Many of you may have seen her on the design teams for Chocolate Baroque, Allsorts, and the former Penny Black Challenge.

I did not know her well, but sometime we emailed back and forth as she was from Yorkshire and we still have family there. She was sometimes even right in their town, renting a place by the sea for her holidays. We would chat about our families and her beloved Yorkshire.

She often made huge lots of multiple cards for her grandsons to give out at school! Those were fun posts to read. She did beautiful paper piecing, and so in honour of Kath, I would like to give out a second prize at the October Rudolph Days Challenge. Anyone who makes a paper pieced Christmas card for their Rudolph Days entry, will be eligible for this second prize drawing.

We can honour Kath, and her love of paper piecing, as well as her creativity. I hope you will all join in.

I used Random Org to choose the winner. Our winner this month is # 6, Di, from Pixies Crafty Workshop. Di, please drop me an email to maureenkane@telus.net and let me know if the address I have for you is still current.

So nice to see Di as a winner, as she is always so generous over on her Snippets challenge. What a lovely gesture to honor Kath with a paper piecing challenge for October's Rudolph challenge. Online friends become such a part of our lives, even when we never meet in person.

I didn't know Kath but all the tributes for her passing are heartfelt. Congrats to Di, it's great to see her win something since she generously gives out many prizes over on the Snippets Playground too! Happy October!
