Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

2nd Mac Challenge Results and Winner!

Congrats to everyone for your amazing participation this round! My apologies for not getting this up sooner - the craziness called "life" got in the way...

First the answers:
1. raggedy ann
2. bagpipes
3. baroque pearls
4. wooden spatula
5. silk stockings
6. african parrot
7. quill pen
8. caged chickens
9. hammock

I loved all the pictures and the patterns!! Just as a reminder, you received a 1/2 point for unscrambling the item, a 1/2 point for a picture of the item, and a full point for a ravelry link to one of the items. Drum roll please...

We had a total of 28 participants, with 21 perfect scores! Names in blue were one of the first 10 respondents with perfect answers and received an additional point for their clan. Bolded names also received perfect scores and were eligible for the drawing.

Beauchamp:
Bree, Caroline, Ealaisaid, Eilis, Imogene, Isobel, Lady North Facing, Morven, Muirne, Nemetona, and Sineag

Fraser:
Airlie, Fiona, Isla, Jeannette, Jocasta Walkley, Nannag, Phaedra, and Vika

Murray:
Bea, Caireann, Ceana, Dalriada, Eileen, Mordag, Tammy, Toireasa, and Zella

DD#1 drew Fiona Fraser's name - congrats!! (Sorry no pics, camera is AWOL and probably in DD#2's toybox!)

Additional points were awarded to:
Eilis Beauchamp for being the early bird (+1)
Vika Fraser for being the sneaker (+1)
Bea Murray for including a picture of her own chicks hatching! (+1)
Fiona Fraser for being the individual winner (+5)

Totals are:
Beauchamp: 100.5 + 4 (1st responders) + 1 (early bird) = 105.5
Fraser: 61.5 + 1 (1st responders) + 1 (sneaker) + 5 (individual winner) = 68.5
Murray: 77.5 + 5 (1st responders) + 1 (cleverness!) = 83.5

Congrats, and thanks for playing! (And for all the lovely pattern links!)
