Two for One

This is a first for me...two posts in one day...actually, two posts within a few hours.  I have to tell you I feel like a VERY

Pretty clever, huh....get it...very lucky girl...sorry, I forgot I wasn't trying to explain it to my kids ;-))

So, why do I feel like a lucky girl?  Really, there are many reasons...but, I am referring to being lucky here in Blogland....Is that even a real word?  Blogland?  Not sure, but that's what I call it.

I am lucky because....

  • I found my way here to Blogland.
  • I've met and made great new friends.
  • I still get a thrill out of posting my progress/thoughts/ideas/questions/pictures, and ...
  • I still love reading what my new friends have made/thought/suggested/blogged about.
  • I've learned many techniques and been inspired by all I have seen.
I could go on and on and on (which I guess I already have), but what I'm really trying to say is:

I am lucky because .....
  • Not only did I win TWO giveaways during the Blogger's Quilt Festival,
  • But I also won Allison's giveaway of three strip blocks and a bag of green and blue strips at Cluck Cluck Sew!! Can you believe she doesn't want them anymore and is just giving them away?!?!?!  I almost didn't leave a comment because at the time there were already 77 other people also wanting to get their hands on these gorgeous blocks ;-))  So glad I was the lucky girl!!!  Thank you Allison.
  • It gets better...I also won a prize on Gudrun's post here where I was randomly picked for correctly guessing which designer's baby picture was on her blog.  I'm telling need to click on the Cross Country Quilt Designer Blog Hop button and see the twelve days of free project patterns by twelve different designers.  Gudrun has a beautiful quilt as you go Christmas wall quilt on her blog today.  Thank you Gudrun.
  • After posting today's blog entry, I discover I won ANOTHER baby picture guessing game prize giveaway!!! This time from Heather at Ankas Treasures.  She is also one of the quilt designers participating in the Cross Country Blog Hop.  Today, she is sharing some of her favorite Christmas memories.  Heather even has her family Christmas card picture taken and posted.  I need to get on the ball.  Thank you Heather.
OK...that is all the prizes I have far ;-))  Can you believe it?  I can't.  I'd like to come up with a way to share my good fortune.  I've been thinking about that lately, especially since .... winning lovely prizes from nice and generous people ... it is almost my 50th post .... Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  All good reasons, among many more reasons, for being thankful.  I plan to keep thinking about this (for a few days or so), and when I come up with an idea (giveaway, charity project made with prize fabric,??), I'll let you know.  

Here is my Moments picture for today. (Click on the new sidebar button to find out more.)  Just to show you that not everything with me has been going according to plan.  Not even close.  I still am not brave enough to show the worst of how my house looks.  This is my dresser which is hardly ever cleaned off enough to see the bottom.

I guess I need to get off the computer and get some work done.  Continue to have an amazing day!!!
