If anyone tells you different, they are lieing !!
Everyone loves to win a prize and I am no exception except I am always so surprised when I do.
I can honestly say I never expected to win.
There were soooo many beautiful bags in the contest (219 !!)
You can imagine my surprise when I won second place. ..I was over the moon! Amazed but over the moon!!!
The prizes packs were fabulous...3 Pat Bravo sewing patterns (La Boheme Skirt, Barcelona Bag, and Capri Bag), a pack of Pat Bravo Aurifil Threads and 10 Pat Bravo fat quarters.
In addition, the 1st prize – 4th prize winners will also receive a copy of my new book, Big-City Bags!
.....I was especially looking forward to the Aurfil threads...I have never sewn with them so I was really excited to trying them out...
Sara's book arrived fairly quickly but the box of the goodies got lost in the mail ...it never arrived (turned out Customs misplaced them ...thats what they tell me)
I had forgotten all about it till a couple of weeks ago, when I was informed that I had won on Sew Mama Sew ....a FQ Bundle of Sara's Jungle Ave fabrics !!
Once again you can imagine my surprise...what are the chances !! A billion to one ??
Best of all ...today, the mailman delivered two packages ...the long lost package and Sara's FQ bundle !!
I can't even tell you how happy I was to rip them open!!
Ohhhh...what beautiful fabrics!! threads ! patterns, and a book...what more can a girl wish for her birthday ???
The gods must be smiling down on me.....what should I play with first ???
Hugs Happy me!!!
