Buy More Schnibbles!

And anything else you can find by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.

I guess you're probably wondering why I'm promoting Carrie Nelson, right? I mean aside from my normal enthusiasm over Schnibbles patterns. Well, you know I'm part of the monthly Le Petite group, and each month, prizes from the various sponsors are awarded to a few individuals from the group who finish that month's project. Last month we made the Brocante Schnibbles pattern, and my name was picked to win one of the two prizes offered by Carrie Nelson--a fat eighth bundle of Collection for the Cause. Cool, huh?! I could hardly believe it when Sinta announced my name. I thought it must be some other Kim!

Well, today a box arrived from the post office. A box that was bigger than was needed for a fat eighth bundle. And yep, in typically generous Carrie Nelson fashion, she sent along extra "surprises."

I've had so much fun tonight reading the note Carrie sent and looking through the goodies. I can hardly wait to play with my new toys. I know I've said it before, but just in case you missed it: Carrie Nelson is the most generous and personable designer around. And talented too. Waaaaaay talented. So buy more Schnibbles, Miss Rosie patterns, fabric, and anything else with the Miss Rosie name on it, because Carrie deserves all the good things that success brings.

Good for you! Kim, you are most deserving of this! Your "Schnibbles" work is truly inspiring. I am sure Carrie and Miss Rosie are also familiar with your work and know that you have done their patterns justice! Enjoy your loot!

Congrats on the win! Sounds wonderful!

Mary said...

I totally agree. I won a prize from Carrie last fall in a designer blog tour. She is not only very talented, but also very generous and personable.
Congratulations on your prize!

I love it when people praise wonderful people who are doing a great job. Well done Kim and Carrie!

She is extremely generous and seems so nice. She sent me a box for a quilt along that was beyond generous.

Congrats Kim! I agree...Carrie is amazing...and yes, people should buy more Schnibbles! I can't wait to see Carrie's next line of fabric at market, too!

Hey that's so great that you won all those goodies! I agree, I love Carrie's patterns, I'm working on 4OT right now. I love Schnibbles too. Her patterns are written so well and friendly-like. :-)

Congratulations! Nothing makes my heart beat faster than getting a box delivered from "The One Who Isn't Rosie". You will enjoy your goodies so much, I know.

I so agree! Love her! Congrats on the win!

Brandie said...

So happy for you and jealous too! I will do as you say and buy more Schnibbles. If my Husband asks why, I'll tell him you said to do it. He already thinks I made you up.
I wish Carrie all the best. You aren't the only one to sing her praises. Everyone who has worked with her has been showered with her sweetness.

Great win! The other thing about Carrie--she's funny!

Quilt Hollow said...

Congrats on you win Kim. I just didn't have time to make her project last month and agree a win from Carrie is a JACKPOT!!

Le Petite though isn't just Schnibbles anymore. I like the idea of allowing other designers to have a chance at the club but do miss the "exclusive" of Schnibbles only.

Sinta Renee said...

I'm so sorry you didn't like your package... KIDDING! Yes, Carrie is a little saint! So nice, generous and beyond talented! You are extremely talented and nice too:)

Shannon said...

Congrats!! I love her patterns. She is a very sweet person!!

Hi Kim,
I can't think of a more deserving winner than you. Enjoy playing with your lovely new bundle.

Last Christmas I was a lucky recipient of one Carrie's giveaway prizes. It did have some lovely extras in it but one of the nicest things was a cup and note in her beautiful handwriting.
It made my day and I am sure that her parcel made yours.
I have both of her books and a number of her patterns. She is a real sweetie.
Regards,
Anna
