Congratulations to all and it was so much fun. I just loved getting all the emails with your guesses. I had a lot with 300's. When I decided to do this contest. I filled my brandy sniffer with all the beads I had on Mother's day and asked my sons and dh how much they thought was in there. I had guessed over 2, 000, I made so many of them, lol. I told them that and all of them said no way. they all three thought it was about 6-700. I just knew I had more than that..well they were right, at that time I had made only 682..boy and it was half full..so I started to make more till the glass sniffer was full.
I have made a lot more since I have fill this bowl and I am curious of how many I totally have. I have enough beads for an army of quilters to use, lol..and for a life time..lol..
I will get your addresses and mail your winning package out tomorrow or Monday. Enjoy!

I am so excited & pleased, I can't wait to see & use the beads! I recently lost a contest at our quilt guild retreat on guessing buttons - so I knew there had to be a lot in there - sure didn't think I would get that close! Wow!!! Thanks a lot Lorranie - your work is beautiful BTW!
