It Isn't Easy Being Green! Got My Prize Package from Donna at This Year's Dozen!
Donna at This Year's Dozen celebrated her four year blogging anniversary with a giveaway. And, I was one of the lucky winners! Go to her blog and give her some comment love and follow her!
Anyway, I only had to leave a comment stating what my favorite colour was. The prizes were a surprise based on what you like. I went with my favorite: GREEN. And, I wanted something quilting related. Let me just say, it was a fabulous package of goodies:
Kitchen Accessories pattern, small and large charm assortments, some fat quarters, some yardage, some green threads and a wonderful quilt block book!!!!! It's the first time I have ever won something on the giveaways and I was quite flabbergasted with all the goodies!!!
I don't know yet what I am going to do with the accoutrements. One idea I had was to make a St. Patty's Day themed quilt that I could put out during that time of year. But, then I thought I want it to be out all the time :) Then I thought, there's enough there to make 2 projects (even though I do larger projects usually). I have too many things in the fire right now, but I am going to keep these items grouped and try to tie them all together in some way.
This is also my first time with charms. See my post about them. I have another question regarding this. One of the commenters on my post talked about prewashing. I prewash everything. Can you prewash charms? Or, will they become all wonky and frazzled? Leave a comment if you have any suggestions regarding this.
Anyway, congratulations Donna and thank you for making my day!!!
