Lucky, I Tell You!

I am one lucky sap. You wouldn't believe it, seriously. I'm lucky in love, lucky that I found work that inspires me, lucky to have so many riches...lucky to believe that none of them are as important as how I treat others and the wouldn't believe how wonderful my friends are.

So then, on top of just supreme happiness (hate me, if you must, I would understand) once in a while something ridiculously over the top happens. Like, remember the time I entered that giveaway and won that adorable package from Kim at Daisy Cottage?

You won't believe it, but I entered another giveaway over at one of my very favorites, Rosehip...and I won! Shut. Up. It's true! What are the chances?

It's an embarrassment of riches, really.

This giveaway was for nearly six yards of fabric. Swoon! And not just any fabric, but vintage and new pieces that make me so happy! Having sweated and labored through the fabric shop more than once, for many a project, I can tell you sincerely, this is a gift. I'm not sure if I'll have this eye for color and design, but I happily soak it up from those who do!

Beata is so dang talented. Her craftsmanship just shames me, I assure you. When you get a chance, check out these adorable heart pillows and these super sweet babushkas. You can visit her Etsy Shop to find your own treasures, but they move fast, I must warn you.

The credit for this photo goes to Beata herself (you can tell it's not mine because it's, you know, pretty) to go with the many bundles of fabric she both gaveaway and sold in her Etsy Shop. When anything is made from these adorable fabric packs, it can be added to the Blueberry Patchwork flickr pool or the Strawberry Patchwork flickr pool (which can be found in her sidebar). If you can believe it, there is more than enough fabric in this bundle to make this beautiful patchwork quilt top...

Oh the pressure! I only hope I can do justice to all this deliciousness! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Beata, from the bottom of my heart!


  1. i think luck is directionally proportional to effort. you've been a busy beaver with all your's stands to reason that the fabric goddess would reward such hard work! i find this to be true in many areas. do the work and the goodies come rolling will you be sharing for karma's sake:)
