Don't Hate Me Because I'm...

Were you expecting me to say beautiful? Haha, no. Was that off a commercial or something? 

Anyway...I have been so lucky the past few weeks and have had my little name drawn three times in various giveaways.  How fun! I am completely not a lucky person, but for some reason the stars really aligned this month!

Remember my post about the random things I've made for my kitchen and linked up to the Blogger's Dinner Party? Well, the prize for that month was a Hexagon Sewing Kit from Sew Sara and it arrived in my mailbox just the other day.

How fun is that? 50 hexagon templates and squares all cut and ready to go. Now I just have to figure out what to do with them!

Then, imagine my surprise when I got an email from Kate telling me that I had won one of the prizes for the first link-up for 100 Quilts for Kids. Seriously? My fellow Hoosier, Debra of Easily Distracted Debra donated a fabulous prize....

Munki Munki pajamas...


And Heather Ross's book Weekend Sewing. I'm so excited to look through the book and start making something! Well, it will probably have to wait a while, but I can still look. Has anyone of you made something from this book?

And I'm seriously not trying to rub it in here, but yesterday I found out that I was one of the winners in  Svetlana's giveaway over at Sotak Handmade. I won a super cool shoulder bag made by Svetlana. Have you seen the amazing stuff she makes? I feel like I am always pinning or favorite-ing her pictures.

Ok, so enough about that. Since good things supposedly come in threes, I guess my luck is probably done for the next 30 or so years. 

Here are some other fun giveaways you can still enter:

Susan, the History Quilter is giving away a $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop to celebrate the friendships made through the online quilting community and reaching 50 (now 54) followers. 

Rebecca of Making Rebecca Lynne is also celebrating her followers (72!!) by giving away a super-cute handmade frame pouch and some lovely fabrics.

Allegory of {Sew} Allegorical is having her very first giveaway of a fat quarter bundle of Wickedly Wonderful Halloween fabrics.

Lynne of Lily's Quilts is hosting a giveaway extravaganza called Christmas Gifts for Quilters, celebrating all those things we would love to get from our loved ones for Christmas. Her theory being that anyone wondering what to get you can just poke the button from her blog and find out. Or, you can win it from one of her giveaways. Isn't she an evil genius??


  1. That's funny that you're done with winning for the next 30 years. I hope not, but you HAVE been lucky lately!! Good for you - enjoy all your loot! ;-)
