Lucky lady

I am so thankful for this blogging-quilting-crafting community that exists out there on t'interweb.  You guys ROCK my world!  Why you may ask?  Well because the generosity is amazing and it still amazes me :)

In August I was tremendously lucky to win a $50 gift certificate to Fort Worth Fabric Studio from their blog.  As soon as went on to go shopping I saw that they had the Briar Rose bundle [be still my heart - those froggies are the coolest things EVER] so I decided that I couldn't live without it!!!  I put the gift cert towards it and paid the shipping and my bundle of 20 fat quarters -yes 20- arrived a week or so later!  I think I squealed when I opened the parcel!!  I love these Briar Rose fabrics!!  Jodie even added a hot chocolate and a little notebook to the package too - thanks Jodie!  So - what do you think I should I make from this yummy fabric??

And if that wasn't lucky enough, I won a giveaway on A Spoonful of Sugar - a $40 Gift Certificate from XO Gigi Fabrics.  There was so much to pick from so I decided on some yummy PB & J fabric to go in my Impromptu quilt and some yummy green on green dots just because I love green!!  I have completely fallen for the PB & J fabric line: blue, aqua, red and green all together = yum!  Here is one of the prints I ordered:

Can you believe that Joanna of Shape Moth drew my name to win her paper pieced pattern of an Anchor?  Yup - pretty awesome eh?  I recently purchased some Tula fabric that this will look great in!

So thank you to Jodie, Joanna, Gigi, Lisa and Sarah for holding fabulous, amazing and tremendously generous giveaways and for picking little old moi!  I truly LOVE what you have shared with me :)

I totally get the excitement at receiving a bundle of 20 fat quarters! Just make sure you use them and don't just keep looking at them and stroking them! :-)
