I always believe that when good fortune comes along, it's best to give a little something back. I think it makes for good karma or at least it brings a little smile to someone's face!
Remember my story about leaving last week's office party with a $40 bribe? I may have told you the follow up story, but I don't think so. The next morning, on my way to work, I went to Noah's Bagels and bought bagels and cream cheese for the office with half my "winnings." How can anyone hate me when I'm feeding them breakfast, right?!
Well, once again good fortune has smiled on me. This afternoon I had an email from Jocelyn at the Fat Quarter Shop, letting me know I was one of the Dear Santa winners and I'd won the Frosted Windowpanes quilt kit. Woo-hooo! Seriously, it came as a HUGE surprise--I didn't really think I had a chance. In fact, I was so CERTAIN I wouldn't win that I had already ordered the pattern, and that package arrived today. So this is what I'm going to do: I'll have a giveaway for the pattern. If you haven't seen it, here's what it looks like:
It looks like the piecing is pretty simple, and the applique isn't too complicated, but yet it makes for a really stunning and elegant quilt, don't you think?! If you might be interested in making this quilt, please leave me a comment, letting me know you want in on the drawing for the PATTERN and I'll put your name in. I'll announce a winner on my Thursday (Christmas Eve) blog post.
I also ordered a Schnibbles pattern using the Glace fabric line and that arrived today too. Once I make that smaller quilt, I'll do another giveaway of the pattern and probably some of the fabric to make it, so if you didn't win at the FQ Shop and don't win the Frosted Windowpanes pattern from me . . . well, maybe you'll get another chance, so check back every so often!
