Lucky

Chief and I have both had some good luck this weekend. His was *huge* only it's not my news to blog about it. So I'll tell you about my little bit of luck too.

Sunday I tuned in to read What's New British Pussy Cat, a regular feature over on Katy's blog and saw I'd won a give away that Katy held during the previous weeks WNBPC. Even more amazing was I was the first person to comment. I will completely fess up I read this post at just after midnight the week before and over come with all the fabric loveliness and getting a bit distracted by geekly glasses I commented then completely forgot that a comment got me entry into the give away.

So it was a BIG surprise when I read that I was the winner and even more of a surprise to find my winnings arrived super speedily and were here today! I don't think I've ever won anything as substantial as this in any other give away.  As I've been really careful with my fabric purchasing it's be a very long while since I had a big bundle of fabric turn up in my mail.   There are 18 FQ's of Stitched here! The pictures don't do the fabric justice. They'd be the perfect blender, but equally, I reckon this lot would be great all in a quilt together. I just have to work out what pattern to use.  I'm open to suggestions.

They were supplied by Fabric HQ a new to me online fabric shop run by Jacqui and Rae a mother and daughter team. I don't think it'll be long before I'm placing an order because there is so much tempting stuff in  their shop and I suspect I'll be using up quite a bit of my fabric now as finishing my bee quilt has really sent my sewing mojo into over drive. I'd definitely recommend you have a nosey around Fabric HQ, just don't buy up everything before I get to go shopping ok?!

 Today if it hadn't been so windy I was going to lay out my vintage sheet quilt top WIP and take some pictures. I've decided this is the next quilt I want to finish so I'm hoping to organise what I need to finish it this week.

Thanks to Rae, Jacqui and Katy for such a great give away.
