Rain Boot Winners

Wow, thank you, everyone, for sharing all your wonderful nature memories with me. : ) I'm not able to respond to all of your comments, but I read every single one of them and thoroughly enjoyed them. I especially loved the camping-gone-wrong stories, since my main memory of camping as a child is of sitting in our pop-up camper listening to the rain pour down on us for days at a time. : )

Also, I am super flattered by all the interest in my little rain-boot print! Remember, if you didn't win, you can buy it directly from Spoonflower—click here to purchase. And please let me know if you make anything with it, I would love to see pictures.

Okay, so the winners of the Rain Boots fat quarters who had my favorite comments are:

"One of my fav memories is of a huge mulberry tree at the edge of the woods. There was a small footpath through the underbrush that lead to a clearing just under the mulberry tree, our clubhouse. Daddy hung a tire swing and helped nail boards to the side for us to climb easier. You could not see anything from the outside, just the woods. So it was like our secret place. We spent so much time there, my brother, sister and I, esp in the summer. It was a wonderful place. I wonder sometimes if its still there. If its been found by other kids and is still a happy place, a happy tree. Fond childhood memories.....thank you :)" Awww, what a beautiful description of a magical childhood place. How could I not choose it?

"What a great design Lee! A few years after I survived major breast cancer, I signed up for Outward Bound to help me regain my self confidence. I spent seven days in the Boundary Waters with nine other women cancer survivors I had never met before. Nature is such a healer. We spent the time canoeing, navigating, rappelling, soloing, cooking and fishing. Nature and all of those women became my friends. I think I can say that is the reason I am a twenty-four year survivor. " Wow, Mary, what an experience! A clear winner. : )

And the random winners of the FQs are:

#145 - lizmakesstuff
"When I was in high school, my family went on a trip to the Canadian Rockies. We went on several hikes that were ostensibly "easy" but in reality were anything but. One of them was a 23-mile round trip hike to a glacier. Though it was July (specifically Canada Day!) there was lots of snow on the ground, much of which had never been touched by humans. We had lots of fun playing in the snow that day (we're Florida kids so snow is a novelty!) and we were exhausted at the end of it but it was definitely a trip to remember!"

and

#9 - Kristen
"These boots remind me of my pretty white and pink raincoat I had when I was 7. I used to hope it would rain so I could wear my raincoat to school. It was reversible so one side was pink and the other side was white with tiny little different colored hearts. I still remember splashing in the puddles on the way home from the bus and my mom being worried because it took me so long to get home. Thanks for helping me remember that! LOVE the fabric!"

Congrats to all the winners! I'll be sending you an email to get your mailing addresses. Enjoy your fabric!
