winner of the 2009 fiddler's summer challenge!

Congrats Bridget! You were the winner. For anyone confused as to what this even means: Bridget was voted the best new fiddler of the summer. Back in early June (I think) I tried to urge people to take up teaching themselves to fiddle. For a few weeks we checked in here, posted updates on our violins and progress, and on July 31st folks posted videos of some tunes and we all voted Belfountain the winner. She'll be receiving a gift package from the farm and everyone else who posted a video will also receive a small gift (homesteading themed books from Storey. Please write me your interests in country skills so I can send you a proper book!). Please email me your addresses and you'll all get them before October. Thank you all who played, supported, joined in, and kept in touch!

Yay, Bridget! Woo hoo! Congrats, you earned your prizes. I know how hard you worked for this accomplishment, because I worked along with you. I'm just not as good at it.

Doin' a happy dance for Bridget and all of us new fiddlers.

Oh, what wonderful news to wake up to! Thank you to everyone who voted, everyone's well wishes, and especially to all the fiddlers who participated. I think this should be considered a collective triumph, a testament to how far a person can go with enough determination, encouragement, and... gumption? I love that word!
And giant sunflowers-tall-as-a-house-sized thanks to you, Jenna, for starting this challenge and seeing us through. I don't think any of us would have gotten this far without you!
