I Won! I Won!

And there's a reason I said it twice! First, let me say I NEVER WIN ANYTHING. It's the story of my life. Seriously. So on Mother's Day, when I came home and started reading my blogs, I got to Charming Chatter and Kelly had posted the results of her give-away. I saw my name, and thought gee, that's odd, there must be another Allie in MI. Then I read my comment that she posted, and it dawned on me that HEY, that's me! It was a good thing I was sitting down. The prize was any fat quarter bundle from her shop, Cotton Charm Quilts! I picked the Snippets line, which I adore....being the only girl in the house here, I love retro girly stuff. I'm going to use some on my Wonky House blocks!

But that's not all.

I got offline and watched a movie. Before I shut down, I thought I would check my email one last time. And lo and behold, Jenny from Elefantz had emailed me - I had won HER give-away! The sweetest Wonky House block wallhanging stitched by the incredibly talented Jenny! My cup runneth over!

I told her that it was so special to get something made by someone else, because as you know, we quilters and stitchers tend to give folks a lot of ourselves, but rarely recieve anything made by someone else. I will treasure this forever! This was surely a Mother's Day to remember!

Allie, thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments about the onesies. I finally just threw them in the wash with some towels and they came out looking pretty good. The 'new-ness' feel was washed away, but so was the extra dye! Love your Wonky Houses! I think I might try some myself!
