Mike Tyson, Another Dead Stick and a SEWN Winner!

A lot of love has gone into the making of this Chickummyjig and to be honest, we’ve grown quite close over the last month. Somehow it didn’t sit comfortably, letting some randomly generated whatsit decide his fate. It only seems fair that this Chickummyjig should choose his own new home...

So. I have cut up a kazillion pieces of ‘straw’ and written the name of every SEWN Blog Party Giveaway commenter on the back and then attached a paper clip. At this point I’m warming to the Random.org concept, but I get a look from the chook. Finding yet another use for a dead stick (honestly, I’m blown away by the limitless potential), I harness a ‘fishing’ rod to a startled Chickummyjig, who is now also re-visiting the Random.org thing.



If you’re thinking the chook looks as though he’s gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson, just you try being a chicken and sucking on a magnet. Drum roll please...



The moment of truth...



And the winner is...



JESS of Oh My!




Congratulations Jess. On all fronts. Having checked your blog, it’s obvious you are the perfect chicken and baby number FIVE, Mum-to-be! (if you’re thinking a Chickummyjig with attitude might just tip the scales, let me know).

Er, he’s packed and ready to go, best email me those postal details...



A hearty thanks to all for playing and hurray! for a SEWN Blog Party Giveaway...

Although we do pity it that the chicken is not coming over to Holland, we love the way she has choosen her new place. And the suitcase is perfect; we will not see another broken egg again on her side....
