I enter at least 10 giveaways a week, probably more.  I never expect to win.  In truth the odds aren't that bad - most typically have 300 to 1000 entries, but still. It always seems like such a long shot.  Well, apparently my luck changed in February because I've won three giveaways in the last month!  I finally had a chance to take some sunny photos this weekend.

1. Daisy Janie
Back in January, Jan of Daisy Janie held a blog hop to promote her new organic fabric collection, New Leaf. To encourage followers, she held a word scramble.  Each participant provided a letter at the end of her post, and contestants had to guess the correct word at the end of the hop.  Well, I followed along religiously and ended up correctly deciphering the scramble and being drawn from the correct answers!  Now, I get to play with this gorgeous bundle!

I just became a member of do. Good Stitches (beyond excited!) and this month's quilter wants summer colors - these vibrant yellows and purples are perfect!

2. Shades of Blue from Crafternoon Delight
Kim from Crafternoon Delight (best blog name!) held a generous giveaway for her birthday - a collection of half yard cuts in shades of blue/green.  She asked readers to tell their best tale of drunken and disorderly shenanigans, so I hailed back to my college days and a night out with some friends that involved a street sign, chicken nuggets and honey, and Mean Girls. And I won!  So while Mr. T and I were in Turkey, this lovely bundle arrived.  I haven't gone through them too closely yet, but I think they're mostly from Robert Kaufman.  The one with the chairs and the birds is my favorite!

I've already used a bit of the Hawaiin print for something I'll share later in the week.

3. QuiltCon Swag
Lastly, Lindsay of Lindsay Sews and Craft Buds held a giveaway for some extra items she brought home from QuiltCon. I was having a bad week when this arrived, so it was definitely a good pick me up!

Clockwise from top left: DMC embroidery floss, Melody Miller temporary tattoos, embroidery needle, Kona Tomato Red FQ, FQs from Windham (I think - no idea what collection), Pearl Bracelets charm, thread, Ticklish mini charm pack (love this!), Mini Robot Doll from Spoonflower and Jessee Maloney, Ty Pennington FQ. There were also a few coupons and discount cards, but those aren't as pretty to photograph. Oh, and a pixie stick, but that's long gone...

I may or may not have already made the robot doll and put him in the mail...

Thank you to Jan, Kim, and Lindsay for my goodies!  Considering I'm on a fabric buying ban ad infinitum, these provided much needed fabric therapy!
