FFG SAL 2019 Round Up and Prize Draw Winners

Hi all!

As promised, all that remains for the FFG SAL this year is to announce the prize draw winners.

But first, the stats. There were a total of 109 link-ups during the year, entering 389 FFOs.

Here's a graph of how many entrants there were each month:

And how many entries:

Naturally both numbers trailed off during the summer and towards the end of the year but overall this SAL exceeded my expectations by a long way; I was hoping for maybe 100 FFOs during the year, so I'm well chuffed with 389!

And now for the prize draws.

I said I'd do two - one for the entrant and one for the entry. The numbers 109 and 389 were entered onto one of my trusted spreadsheets, plugged into the RNG and the button pressed. The results were...

Entrant number 60 which belongs to Erin from Fairy Tales and French Knots.

Entry number 284 which is this one, belonging to Suzanne H.

Congratulations to the two of you; commiserations to everyone else, but a but a big thank you for participating. In some way we're all winners with less UFOs and more FFOs to our names.

If Erin and Suzanne would both get in contact with me either via a comment or directly at we'll work out some prizes.

I hope you've all enjoyed the SAL this year and hope to see you return again in 2020! Let's see if we can make a new year's resolution to keep FFOing at least one UFO per month (if you have any of course!)

Take care,
Rachel x

Congratulations Stitchers!

You are right Rachel, everyone is a winner in some way for getting the stitching out of the finished pile and into the FFO pile.

Wow! Congrats to the drawing winners but I agree Congrats to all of us. I love the push to finish something each month. Boy did I. Thanks for hosting.

Suzanne H said...

I was so happy to see my name. Just like the others, this gallery was such a motivation for me this year. I was finished my 2019 ornaments in plenty of time and even got those Brooke's Books Advent Animals finished that I stitched 2 years ago! Thanks so much!

Congratulations to Erin and Suzanne. It has been very inspiring watching this SAL and seeing so many things FFO x

Congratulations to the winners, and to you and all of us for getting so much finishing done! Looking at the numbers, I'm very impressed - I sometimes had a hard time getting even one FFO, but some people must have consistently done 5+ to get there!
