… duh, winning

wow, someone must be looking out for me, because i just got incredibly lucky. a few weeks ago i donated to the very worthy action kivu cause via alissa haight carlton. there were some terrific prizes for donating, and though i honestly donated because i wanted to give to a wonderful program, the prizes were at the back of my mind. so i was terrifically surprised when i won. and not once, but twice!

first i won this amazing bundle of goodies from elizabeth hartman. wow, right?! not only did she include a signed copy of her new book plus all the templates used for the patterns, but there was also an insane amount of solid fabric "scraps" in every color imaginable and it all came bundled in this adorable bag featuring one of the quilts from her book.

from her photo it looked like there was a modest handful of fabrics, but when the package came i couldn't believe just how much there was! i'm pretty sure i won't need to buy solids for a long, long time.

and these templates are just so cool. i can't wait to try them out.

so yeah, i feel super lucky.

but then i got luckier still. i got an email from heather of olive and ollie that i won pdfs of all four of her beautiful patterns. they are all so pretty, but the ohio supernova has really caught me eye. i love the simple, bold design, which is right up my alley these days.

so thanks to elizabeth and heather! they are both such generous ladies for contributing their work to a very worthy cause.

  1. Yayy!! Wow, you really hit the motherload! That is an astounding collection of solids, and the templates should be fun! I think those are the ones Jill of Tabslot makes. She's out of Portland and super sweet!
