I won! I won! My "not winning" streak is over!!!!

I know that  some of you think I win all the time. Actually it has been a while since I won anything.  The fact is, if I don't want the prize I don't enter.  A few friends have prompted me to enter their giveaways- probably thinking I missed it.  Fact is, I am trying to no collect "stuff" that I don't need.
That said, I am a quilter. I always NEED fabric. Right? RIGHT!!!!  So when I saw a giveaway at Quilt Taffy for a "pick your prize" giveaway, I entered.  

Joy joy, bliss bliss!   I got an email today from Corrie.  I won!!!!  yippee.  Now I have been longing for this fabric, frolic by sandy gervais, for a bit now.  I am not sure what I will do with it. But here is what I am sure of:  I will love it. It appears to have a good mix of lights, darks and mediums.  The nice thing about a charm pack is that you can lay out various arrangements and see how the mix works.  And it doesn't cost much.  Then if you love it you can get the layer cake or the FQ bundle or the Jelly Roll with assurance that you like how the fabrics play together.

I can't wait to PLAY with this Charm Pack  from Quilt Taffy.  I know they have an eBay store.  So if you are jealous, go shop at Quilt Taffy on eBay.

Lucky you, I love that Frolic. Hey, love anything by Sandy Gervais. I won't enter a giveaway that asks me to do anything other than make a comment. So, I don't win.

I still think you win all the time! LOL I too try not to enter unless I really want something. I just placed a huge order (3 separate places) and got them all on the same day, that made me feel like I won!!! I'll just push to the back of my mind that I actually paid for it!

That was such a nice giveaway, and I'm happy you "finally" won. How nice that you got a design you had been wanting.

Hey Gene... Maybe you should bottle some of that luck... or charge people $5 to rub your head!!! Congrats on the win!
