Tickled on Tuesday~

Gotta call my bookie!  Buy some lottery tickets!!  I am on a lucky streak!  I never, I mean never, win anything, ever.  But look at this!
Sherri at AQuiltingLife.blogspot.com picked my comment a couple of weeks ago for a giveaway, and I won a $25 gift certificate from a fabulous shop, SkyeReveFabrics.com.  Yiippppeeee, woooohooooo, wowza!  I had not yet made a veteran's quilt this year, so I ordered a half-yard bundle of this yumm-o red, white and blue, plus extra yardage of the dotty dark blue stripe-y.  The stars fabric is Windham Fabrics Presents Brights & Pastels Basics, but all the others are American Valor Fabrics, Quilts of Valor Foundation, www.QOVF.org by Timeless Treasures Fabrics.  I didn't know QOV had a fabric line, and it's simply wonderful.  

I'm not usually a red/white/blue kind of girl when selecting fabrics, but these are the most gorgeous shades, and I look forward to using them in a QOV quilt.  Our guild also makes quilts for local vets, and for vets living in the nursing home at the VA Hospital in Murfreesboro, TN.  I have enough of these to make a couple of quilts, so I have my projects lined up for awhile!

AND Natasha at SkyeReveFabrics.com included a couple of sweet charms that will go perfectly with those I had on my design wall last week.  Please go see her, she's the sweetest lady and so helpful and she has all the newest stuff.  Also, any purchases through the end of this month are entered for a $50 drawing at the shop online!!!!  (As for the charms that were on my design wall, well, they had to come down for awhile.  But they'll be back!)  Thank you, Natasha, and Sherri!  

Two giveaways in one month.  'scuse me whilst I faint.  And when I recover, I'm going to think about doing a giveaway, too!  So stay tuned :-)
