I have only entered a couple of giveaways since I had my run of wins a couple of years ago.
I visit A Spoonful of Sugar often and happened to be there on a day when they were offering a $40.00 gift certificate for fabric at XOGiGi Fabrics. There were so many entries and I almost didn't enter, but as I was scrolling through some of the collections of fabric, I saw this:
Don't be Crabby in Nautical
by Robert Kaufman
I thought it would make a cute beach quilt and since Mr. SS has heard he may have a job on the Central Coast coming up, I just might need something for the beach.
Well, I couldn't have been more suprised when I was notified that I won.
I was # 765 out of 1200 entries.
A few days before Valentines Day, I was reading Pam Kitty Morning and saw this little stack of cuteness:
Pam said to visit Holly to enter a giveway from both of them.
No doubt about it. When I saw this I knew it just had my name on it.
Then when I read what to do to be entered, I was convinced.
"Tell a wonderful Valentines story" in the comment box.
Boy did I have a story for them.
So, I told them a shortened version of my Valentine story. If you have been hanging around My Sew Sweet Studio for a while, you might remember my story here.
Yesterday, I was on PKM's blog again and went to Holly's blog to see the teacup quilt.
You can only imagine how I
screamed squealed when I saw
And before I forget...
Without further ado...
The winner is...
The very sentimental...
Drum roll please...
Beverly whose hubby Dennis, gave her the same heart necklace...twice
It took a minute to sink in, because I had forgotten about entering.
No one has notified me yet, but I'm sure I'm the only Beverly with a Dennis and a necklace given to me twice. You know me by now and how I love anything PKM. and I cannot wait to receive the prize.
I'm leaving you today with the best win of all.
I spent the afternoon Sunday watching these two grandsons of mine play ball.
Cousins Cade and Jack.
Cade had 2 games and they won both.
Jack had a scrimmage and stayed with me to watch Cade's 2nd game.
Just happens to remind me of afternoons of watching their Daddys play ball.
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
