Lot's To Share!

Lot's to share today!! Waaa hoooo!! :) 

I don't usually consider myself lucky, well, not when it comes to winning things. That is, until recently!!

A good blogger friend of mine, Traceyjay Quilts, had posted her 100th post and she was doing a giveaway to celebrate it. She had lined up a bunch of different fabrics and said the first person to tell me 10 of the collections, wins it! She had posted it quite a while before I had happened upon it but as I was looking at the fabrics, I started saying the lines in my head. I was pretty excited since I am fairly new to all of this modern world of fabric. I started making a list. When I was done I think I had 12 or 13 and sent her the email for kicks and giggles. Wouldn't you know....I got an email back from her telling me I won??!!! Thank you Tracey, for such a great giveaway and those yummy fabrics!! I'm pretty sure they are going in dresdens!! However, I need to know the lines I missed so I can get more...LOL :)

Another giveaway that I entered was over at TulaPink.com. Amazing designer and a sweetie to boot! She has 6 lines that she has designed for Moda and she has been hosting a giveaway of a Jelly Roll in each of those lines. So, every Friday, she'd draw a name and announce the winner. Every Friday I was happy for the winner but a wee bit disappointed it wasn't me...lol. Then on June 4th I was going through my blog roll and came to hers. I had totally forgotten it was Friday. I though, "hmm..I wonder what Tula is up to today" and clicked her link. 

Here's how it went down:

Link clicked.
I saw my name and thought "huh?"....
Saw the words "winner" and "Full Moon Forest" in the same sentance...
I nearly peed!!! 
I think I even screamed while I was dancing in my living room. 
My kid comes out of her room and asks me if I'm ok. 
I nod, because I still can't speak...
She rolls her eyes and goes back in her room.
I check the site again and hit refresh to make sure I wasn't seeing things...
Yep...my name. But there has to be more than one KarrieLyne, right? (duh..no way...lol)
I clicked on the hyperlink to be sure it went to my site. 
Yep. I squealed again!! :D 
Then I typed a ridiculously dorky comment saying thank you and "please don't tell Julie"...LOL.  You see, Julie is THE biggest Tula Pink fan E. V. E. R. I love Julie to pieces but I think I said that because I just wanted one little piece of FMF, but in all reality, I'd hand it over to her in a heartbeat if she asked me. :)

I got my package today!! I squealed when I saw the Tula Pink Label and then I turned it around and saw this! Awwwww..... :) 
Awwwww

Isn't it grand!? I think I will just sit here and hold it and stare at it for a while. :)

  4. I'm glad you like them. :) I posted the names to all the collections on the original post... towards the bottom I think.

    And I can't believe you won the FMF!!! That's AWESOME!

    (I find it interesting that 2 highly coveted lines have the initials FMF -- flea market fancy and this one)

  16. Wow! congrats KarrieLyne! Beautiful winnings! The quilt you're working on looks like a pretty one, I'm loving the colors! I haven't done any sewing in forever! Baseball and work have taken over my life for a while, and my pinwheel quilt is still waiting for backing fabric that's been on backorder :( I'm vicariously living through you now ;)
