Over the past year, I've won some lovely prizes... some I posted about right away, and some, sadly, have taken me too long to post about.
Remember when we took a trip to Seattle last winter? Well, I recieved a happy email from Made-by-Rae during that trip... an email exclaiming that I won a $50 gift certificate to Fashionable Fabrics! At first I was speachless... and then I hurriedly bragged to my mother that I got to pick out $50(!) worth of fabric :)
Quilting Lines and the sewing goodie stockpile from Shelia at Quilting in South Carolina! I've been trying to gather some Halloween fabrics lately so I can eventually make a throw or a pillow, and I've definitely been needing some quilt labels - can't wait to use them! Such fun!
Pink Chalk Fabrics had a summer series where they highlighted sewing studios of bloggers and fabric designers. Each time you commented on a post, you were entered to win one of 50(!) $20 gift certificates to their online store. The posts were very inspiring - I can't wait until I can have a sewing "studio" of my own to decorate and organize! Anyways, these goodies (all have plans on becoming Evelyn clothes) just arrived last week: Riley Blake red solid and chevron knits, a piece of Robert Kaufman Classic Threads, and two shades of Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelets. Can't wait to sew up some outfits!
Fabric Fly through Clover and Violet's Season By Hand summer series. I also had this sent to Mom for safe keeping while we transitioned from MT to SD. I picked out October Afternoon's Sasparilla line for Riley Blake... a layer cake and two half-yard cuts. This will be saved for a quilt just in case Evelyn ever happens to have a sibling :)
I have certainly been lucky over the past year, and I am so thankful for such generous giveaways! These prizes will certainly be put to good use... well, Evelyn just has to learn to nap longer first, so I can have more sewing time :)
