Look What I Won!!!

I love to read other people's blogs.  When I find an interesting one, I follow it.  Blogs give me ideas, including  lots of inspiration.  I sometimes enter giveaways, and have won a couple of things lately :)  I was reading the Vintage Trailer Lady's blog.  She had a yard of some really pretty fabric,  and asked what project she could use it for.  The suggestion she liked the best, would win a fat quarter bundle.

You could make a one yard apron. Use the cute western print as the skirt and use a contrasting print (like red polka dot) for the waistband and pockets. Then trim the skirt and pockets with jumbo pom poms :) Can you picture it?

She said she loved the idea, and this wonderful bundle came in the mail:  The 5 fat quarters came in a cellophane envelope, tied with ribbon and raffia.

There was a really cute tag under the ribbon.

Yes, it did feel like my birthday :)  

I spread out the fat quarters so you could see the colors and the prints.  Aren't they cute?  Very retro.  Thank you Vintage Trailer Lady!

Every week, Randi at I Have to Say has a fat l/8 Tuesday. All you have to do is leave a comment, and you could win one of her fat l/8th bundles.  I was the lucky recipient!!!  Mine are called "beachy" colors.

Randi even included a little button pin, the silhouettes could be me and Kennedy :)

Randi runs a great shop on Etsy called Fresh Squeezed Fabrics.

Randi also has a monthly sew along on her blog.  I have a board for it on my Pinterest  called Randi's Sew Alongs.
Thank you so much for creating such an interesting blog :)
