The Accidental Winner

I don't know why they say lightening doesn't strike twice as recently I've won two bloggy friends give aways and both occasions I've won give aways they've hosted before. Now isn't that curious? Of course I'm not complaining at all. The first give away was from Sarah at FairyFace Designs.


Lucky Girl 
Wasn't I a lucky girl?!
A phone cosy made by Sarah, 100 die cut fabric hexies - many of which have been
fussy cut for extra fun! Three FQ's of fabric and the fabulous Modern Baby quilt book, 
which Sarah contributed too. Boy do I want to make a few of these quilts -
So who's having a baby then?

The second give away win was from Lucy - at Charm about You.  Only when I won Lucy's I'd had no idea I'd actually entered. You may be wondering how I didn't know. But it was one of those Fugly Fabric/Lost that Loving Feeling blog posts and whilst Lucy did say to leave a comment if you were interested in her fabric/projects she had to get rid of, I guess I thought when I commented that it didn't count for the give away, unless I said which of the items I was interested in.  As it was I commented on something else entirely. I have to confess this is not the first time I've won a give away online without really realising I was entering...we'll say no more. I'm not complaining I got a great fat quarter bundle that time.

So what I accidentally won was:

P1150332

P1150333

I also won some socks. And I'll probably need these soon, what with all forecasts saying summer is at an end tomorrow with a 10 degree drop in temperature and rain...

P1150334

Anyway, Lucy and I had a giggle about it and decided I should still receive the give away prize and see it as a challenge. So watch this space. I'll be coming up with something shortly. (Of course wining this give away of Lucy's means statistically I was not likely to be winning her mega give away as well. Damn I'd been drooling over that Aurifil.)

Oh and there is still time to enter my give away. Just go here!
