A couple times a year Sew Mama Sew has a huge giveaway blog hop, with at least a hundred blogs offering prizes to folks for visiting and/or signing up to follow their blogs. Any site is welcome to join in as long as they follow Sew Mama Sew’s rules… maybe next time I will join in! If you have a blog of your own, it is an excellent way to introduce lots of people to your site at once.
Last December, during Mama’s last blog hop, I won some awesome fat eighths and a couple purse frames from Penny Dog. I still haven’t decided what to use these for… they are so lovely I keep saving them for something special. They are from the UK, and have a very fine weave. From the feel of them, I think they are voile. If not, they are something like it. The fabric is thin, soft, and smooth. This is the only voile in my stash, so that makes them extra special.
This time, I won again! First, I won some hand dyed fat quarters from Twiggy & Opal. That in itself was pretty awesome, and I can’t wait to see them. I bet they will arrive today! I really didn’t expect to win anything, even though the odds are pretty good when you have entered that many drawings. So, when I won that I thought I surely wasn’t lucky enough to win any of the other drawings. Yet this morning, I found a $30 FatQuarterShop.com gift certificate in my inbox from Ants to Sugar! Wow!!
So this morning I am feeling extra lucky and grateful. Thanks to Sew Mama Sew for hosting such an awesome event! And thanks to all of the many, many folks that participate in it to make it so wonderful!
