I AM A WINNER times FOUR!!!!!

Yes, you read that correctly! I won not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 times in the SewMamaSew Giveaway! I couldn't believe it. I was busy drawing my winners and emailing the winners when I discovered that I had won the prize from Half Stitched,  aFat Quarter set of Miscellany by Cloud 9 Fabrics.  They are so gorgeous! Thank you Alician.

 Then when I returned to my email to get in touch with Alician, what did I find but two more emails telling me I was a winner!!!! Whoa...who would have thunk it? The first emailed informed me that I had won the prize from sillymamaquilts which is a beautiful table runner. Isn't it gorgeous? And I have the perfect place for it!  Thank you so much Brooke!

The next email was from Tara of True, Pure, Lovely telling me that I had won her great giveaway of vintage fabric, and notions. I already have quite a few vintage pillowcases so now with all the new ones added, I am going to have to start making a quilt! Thank you so much Tara.

 And now last but certainly not least, I received an email from Rebeckah, of Handmade By Rebeckah telling me that I had won the Traveling Stash!!!!  I'll be honest I had never heard of this before. Here is a link to find out all about the stash. Pots and Pins. And here is a link to when and where the stash has been. Sewing Along .  Since I get to choose what I would like from the stash and then add to it, I will be having a Traveling Stash Giveaway in the near future. So please check back. I will advertise the Giveaway. And I plan on having a smaller giveaway at the same time so you will have a chance of two different giveaways at once. Thank you Rebeckah for both the stash but also for all the suggestions to how to pass it on.

As I posted below, I picked two winners since the blog reached 100 comments! The first winner is Stephanie who had the first number drawn and chose the Victorian quilt. Here is her comment:  "This would be so sweet for my best friends little girl! She'd really treasure it."

 Stephanie, let me know if she likes it.

The second winner is  Caryn who has won the Happy, Cheery orange quilt. Her comment was:" I would love to win this because I look after 2 little girls occasionally and we have way too many trucks, robots and other things my 3 boys like to play with. It would be lovely to have some gentler play items (and they are really cute!)"

The back of the quilt is the orange material in the pillowcase.

I just want to thank everyone who has participated in
 my giveaway! I had so much fun reading all of your posts. I made a deal with myself that if I reached 100 comments, I would add a second doll quilt and would have two winners!!! And we made it!!!!!! What I will do is give the first number drawn the choice of the two quilts. Then the second number drawn will win the other quilt.

I am still adding the binding to the second one, but will get a photo up tonight before I draw the numbers. But I will say that it is diametrically opposite of the Victorian look of the original quilt. It is bright orange, yellow and green...really bright. So be on the watch for the photo in just a little bit. This quilt will also come with a pillow and pillowcase.
