C'mon and Rock my World!!!!

Wow! I got home a bit later than usual today. I had to stop by Mom's and give her a B12 shot. I do that every two weeks.  (and no, I am not a nurse or a doctor but I learned to do it)   Then we went next door to see my Aunt and Uncle. My uncle had gotten his second eye operated on for cataracts on Monday.  He is doing fine.

So anyway, I got home and started the computer, and did a few small chores.  Then I sat down and opened my email.   I had at least 3 emails telling me that I needed to check FaceBook.  Why?  I seems I had won an AccuQuilt Go! cutter from the AccuQuilt people.
HUH?  They haven't reached the 5000 fans yet have they?  No, not yet but you should go be a fan if you aren't already.  No, I had entered the IHAN contest to win a Go! but Kelly hasn't drawn for it just yet.  I wrote a limerick for her giveaway entry. Well I decided to post it on AccuQuilt's wall on FaceBook.   I was tickled when I saw "AccuQuilt likes this"
Here is the Limerick
There once was a quilter named Gene.
He wanted a Go! machine.
A Go! cuts with ease
it has dies, sure to please
And for quilters that is serene! 



The message on Facebook said " Gene - Very clever limerick! Please call Beth at 888-258-7913 Ex 611 to receive your Free AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter. " 


Oh, ah...uh....OH MY!!! It was a couple of minutes before I could dial the phone.  Then - "the office is closed for the day, but if you know your party's three digit extension you may dial it at any time."   I dialed it and left a message..but my cell phone started ringing.  Ha ha.  Fortunately, I had an email address for Beth so I emailed and told her my phone number and mailing address.  


I am just waiting to get THIS in the mail or UPS or FedEx:

AccuQuilt is trying to increase the number of fans on Facebook ( www.facebook.com/accuquilt ) and that they give away GO!s when they reach various milestone numbers of fans.

Sandi said...

Very cool, Gene! Love the limerick! I want a Go, too, but I need something for my husband to get me for Christmas so I will give him the info and he can surprise me on Christmas morning. This will allow him to go out and buy some tool that I will wrap up for him to open on Christmas morning and he will be surprised, too. :-) We've both been surprised by a couple of perfect gifts in the last few years. LOL!

Kathy said...

Aren't you lucky! Enjoy your new machine.

JKP said...

I had never heard of this (being a new quilter, I'm a little ignorant on what's out there). I'm going to the facebook page and check it out. Thanks.
