There are always giveaways going on in blogland and 90 percent of the time, I don’t enter them because I figure I’m not going to win. Last week, I was reading John’s (Quilt Dad) blog and he mentioned a giveaway over on Joel Dewberry‘s blog. I read a couple other fabric designers’ blogs but was unfamiliar with Joel’s blog, so I hopped on over. His blog is new (his wife Laurie writes for the blog) and his new fabric collection is now available, so they were having a giveaway (a 10-piece fat quarter pack of one of the colorways from Modern Meadow plus a little bird crafted using Modern Meadow, pictured below). Since I really like Joel’s fabric, I entered the giveaway, hoping for the best.
Last night I was blog reading on my phone while the girls took a bath when I saw my name in the list of winners for the giveaway. I literally started jumping up and down in the bathroom yelling, “I won, I won!” Upon hearing the commotion, Jonathan came in and they were all wondering what on earth was wrong with me.
I am so excited to have won such beautiful fabric. I can’t wait to get my hands on it and see it in person. And I am positive that there will be much fighting for sharing of the sweet little bird between my girls. Yay!!
