A Lucky Streak
I had a lucky streak a while back and I want to take a few minutes to say Thank You to two very generous ladies. And of course, I also want to share with you all what I won.
First, from Sarah Craig (Confessions of a Fabric Addict) I won a bundle of 18 Fat Quarters. A very pink bundle of FQs with lots and lots of beautiful roses.
Some of the fabric have cherry prints. I love cherries. Thank you so much Sarah. Don't know what I will make with these beautiful prints but it will definitively be a quilt for ME. Happy dance all around the bundle for awhile ... then I calmed down. :^D
Then, I won a giveaway that Ruth had on her blog (Country Log Cabin). The prize was 2 meters of any fabric I wanted from her Etsy store. Wow! I get to pick? Oooohhh! That was hard.
I finally decided on these lovelies.
Neutral because we never have enough neutrals, right? A piece of blue too because, hey! it's blue! Then I went for a meter of the red one to use as background in the 150 Canadian Women quilt I want to make (but haven't started yet). But Ruth had a surprise for me, beside that lovely card.
In the folds of the fabric, she hid a panel of labels. How sweet and generous!
Thank you so much Ruth. I am so happy with my fabrics.
And that was my retail therapy for February.
Until next time ... I have fabric on my mind.
