'Threads of Feeling' brooch winners

Hello!
Thank you, thank you so much for all of the most sweetest comments ever. I think this Exhibition has touched all of our hearts.
First though, I wanted to tell you about a little incident that happened this week.
As you know I was so pleased to find Wonkey Donkey. So pleased that he accompanied me on a visit to my Mum and Dads, so I could show him off to them. We were happily chatting away at the kitchen table, when I noticed that their little dog 'Poppy' was chewing something...thankfully I investigated to find 'Wonkey' revolving around her mouth. She had pinched him out of my handbag on the floor. Well, I started wailing in distress, rather like a child, I have to admit. I handed Wonkey to Mum, who was loudly "oh no...ing" and Dad, who is as deaf as a post saying, "what? What's happened"? What a flaming carry on. Thankfully the little so and so, had only chewed Wonkey's legs....so like the Toy Doctor in Toy Story 2, I set about repairing them, as there was enough left of everything to be able to piece his legs together with emery board splints. He is now as good as new.
My Mum felt so bad about the whole incident that today she gave me 'Dixie...Dixie Donkey'. Mum said that Donkeys should never be alone! Here they are making friends...not too friendly though I hope!
Well, back to the point of the post and here are all the names for the 'Threads of Feeling' four brooches giveaway...
I closed my eyes and picked out four little folded papers...

and here we are:
grrl + dog
Silke Scheller
Swirlyarts
and
Velma
Please let me have your details and I will pop in post asap.
Thank you to everyone for commenting, I wish I could send you all a brooch.
Thanks for stopping by. x

Dear Miss Hens Teeth,
This donkey story is the cutest ever. I would do the same thing, Even though we all love our animals, there are points of no return.
You make me laugh!
hugs to you.

Hi Viv, I followed your links to the foundling museum website and was just blown away. It's incredible. Thank you so much for the link. I was a little sad to hear about the wonky donkey ... but so glad you were able to sort him out and he has to be happier having a friend to "chew things over with"

Well, in my family, sadly, when someone misplaces something and anxiously inquires of everyone, "Have you seen my..." The reply is usually, " I thought I saw a little dog running down the road with something in its mouth"

Your poor donkey's affliction reminded me of the visit to a friend who had just come home from knee surgery. Her basset hound took from my purse a felted and laboriously-embroidered ball I had brought to share with her! I could not say anything because my friend would have been distressed. But I did a lot of moaning in the car on the way home.
