Am I lucky, or what??

I seldom win contests.  My luck just doesn't swing that way.  Not that I have bad luck.  Generally, I don't.  But I've really been lucky the last few weeks.  Here is what I've won recently:

First:  I won a Rose Parade charm pack from Corrie at Quilt TaffyThis is my first charm pack, and I’ve been sitting here looking through all the colors for the last five or ten minutes.  I’m so excited and can’t wait to get started on a new quilt top.  I’m just loving the colors – they are so ME!!!

Second:  Leslie at Cote de Texas had a giveaway on her blog for this beautiful Victorian Eiffel Tower bracelet.  The designer, Leslie Andrews of Tarnished Lace, uses vintage pieces to make her  unique, one of a kind pieces.  


This bracelet was special and touched my heart because I lived in Germany seven years and almost every time I had visitors, they wanted to go to Paris.  I had a love affair with the Eiffel Tower, and seeing it illuminated at night reminded me of a piece of Swarovski crystal. 

Third:  I won an apron.  This will be my one and only apron.  Emily at Phone Home Designs by ET was giving away your choice of an apron – and I got to choose from eight aprons.  How cool was that???  I was so excited to win this, and hope it will make cooking exciting.  What???  You don’t think that will happen?  Oh please, please tell me that isn’t so.   Oh well, in any case, I’ll look pretty cute as I’m in there slinging things around trying to cook.  Well, as cute as a fat old lady can look in a cutie-pie apron.  And just in case you’re interested, I chose the last one in the photo below.  I figured that one would hide the fat from my body, and maybe disguise the food stains I’m sure I’ll get on it.

Fourth - yep there is a fourth win!:  I haven't received this win yet, but I know it's on the way.  Jean at Quilting Ranny had a giveaway of this Moda pack and an awesome Sandy Gervais 'Oopsie Daisy,' charm pack pattern.  Everything was donated by Linda, the owner of Abbi May's fabric and quilting shop. Isn't she just wonderful? Linda didn't just donate this awesome charm pack, she also donated the pattern and buttons to go with it and is sending it all wrapped up in an adorable Moda bag.
