Here I am, money tight, dreaming about buying new fabric and supplies for my shop, when I received an email telling me I had won the Urban Threads give away. The prize being this:
10 packs of embroidery thread in a super cute pincushion box. I have bought many machine patterns from this shop in the hopes that I will one day have an embroidery machine to sew with. LoL That's how much I love them! For now, I have to rely on my little fingers to do the talking, and this thread will come in very handy for some new hand embroidery patterns I have also purchased. This shop is one of a kind. Love them!
THEN...later that night, I was reading my nightly Stash Manicure email. Every day (but Saturdays) I get an email with a new guest blogger showing different projects and organization techniques to help trim 'the stash' of fabric that all quilters and sewers seem to collect. I don't have that problem yet...haha...I have no problem using every bit I have, but I love reading the experiences of other fabric lovers and seeing all their cool projects. Anyway...they have a give away at the end of every month and lo and behold..I won!!!
The prize was a full Fat Quarter Bundle of Robert Kauffman's Paperdoll 1930's Reproduction fabric line. And a beautiful quilting book .
The gal that manages the blog is the one and only Madam Samm, who I have talked about before due to her amazing Mug Rugs. Well, she sent me a link to a picture of the box that is going out for me tomorrow and what do I see there?? She put in a bunch more goodies for me, including my VERY OWN M.S. Mug Rug. *squeeee*!!! I know you think I'm nuts, but I just go crazy for such beautiful craftsmanship and I am so honored to be the recipient of one of these lovely items. Thank you so much Stash Manicure and Madam Samm for giving me a smile that has not come off my face for the last 16 hrs. Yes, I'm pretty sure I was even smiling in my sleep. ;)
Hope everyone had as glorious a Monday as I did...!
