Some of you may remember Kristen's July giveway. I entered, but at the time of the original drawing my number didn't come up. Okay, so while I had been imagining fondling the fabrics and squeezing the pincushion, I knew some other quilter would enjoy them as much as I would have, so I wasn't totally disappointed when I didn't win. Luck of the draw, right?
I guess my luck was merely delayed. One of Kristen's winners failed to contact Kristen and give her her contact information. Bad for her and good for me. When Kristen ran the random generator doohicky again, my number came up! Yippee! (I certainly hope that for the quilter who missed out, it was because she was on a cruise or a trip to Hawaii, or something fun like that.)
Anyway, the giveaway stuff is so cool! Included is a generous piece of fabric with kitchen motifs--cups, pears, toasters--and cute little sayings like, "Hey good lookin', what you got cookin?". Kristen included one of the pincushions she made. This one has strawberries in the center and is simply adorable. Finally, there were 42 five inch squares from Moda's 12 Days of Christmas collection. Wow! I feel like I made out like a bandit.
