I'm a winner!

No need to feel sorry for me anymore about not winning anything, because I finally won! And three times, too! I would first like to say thank you to everyone that such sweet comments on my pretty little GIANT star surround finish yesterday! Ok, back to why I brought you here...

I was one of the lucky winners who participated in the Studio Spotlight Series hosted by Ellison Lane and The Sewing Loft....and I won a $25 GC to Sew Lux Fabrics! To be honest, I hadn't heard about them until I won and when I went to check out their cute little shop I was amazed at their selection! It took me an hour to just decide what I was going to get and then went a bit over my $25 and it was totally worth it.

I decided on some of the Simply Style and Road 15 fat quarters. I think their FQ prices are stellar! And isn't their packaging adorable? I didn't want to open it! I had just read a post by Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts about how packaging the fabrics you sell leaves a lasting impression and I have to agree! I will now add Sew Lux to my loving list of favorite fabric shops!

Thanks so much to Sew Lux, Ellison Lane and The Sewing Loft!

No reason to end there either... After I wrote this post I received my next box of winnings! Whoop! I won a bunch of Pellon supplies from Sewing Rabbit. They held a giveaway several weeks ago for a trip to Sewing Summit. I came in second. Oh, SEW close! Anyway, my Pellon box came Friday and lets just say that stuff is hard to photograph to make pretty so I'm just going to share my phone pictures...

Thanks to Jessica at Sewing Rabbit and Pellon!

Oh, and no reason to stop there either...I found out last night that I won a sample pack of Aurifil thread for submitting "Dolly on a Quillow" over at Lily Pad's Pets on Quilts 2013 linky contest. While Dolly didn't win best dog in show (she was close so thanks for voting for her) we didn't walk away empty handed! Thanks Aurifil, Lily Pad and everyone else that took part in this fun little show!

    1. I know!!! I guess the giveaway fairy could hear my pitiful pleas last week. Haha! I wish I had moreof the road 15 but I was being good, at least trying. $2.50 per FQ was so tempting. Have a great week!
