Chicopee and a winner!


my fabric splurge arrived!!  i know my mom and grandma will gasp with horror, (sorry Denyse!) but i think it's gonna be great fun.  not sure yet if i'm gonna like it as much as Hope Valley, but i think it'll grow on me.

right now i'm dreaming of using it in a medallion quilt.  with some solids and other stuff thrown in of course.


and on another note - remember this book from my last post?  well, i think some of you got the hint, but when i found that book in the sale section? there was actually two of them there and i bought them both.  i got the extra one for exactly the purpose of giving one away to one of my loyal readers!

so this morning i used mr. random to pick a winner.  I contacted the winner already, so once i hear back from her, i'll be sending it her way.

i love doing giveaways this way, it's just a lot of fun and I like rewarding the people who actually visit me regularly, read my posts, and comment.  you all deserve to win, and i really do find it hard to pick just one!  if it wasn't for the crazy cost of shipping, i seriously would send you each a little bundle!

but i will keep having these giveaways now and then! !  i love being a bit tricky!

  8. Chicopee would be seriously amazing as a medallion quilt!! I have the full line of Hope Valley and I have been having a hard time choosing what to do. I was thinking coins, but seeing that medallion is super inspiring!
