Facebook and Luck

Like many folks, I have a Facebook page. I'm a bit reluctant to post on my Wall, but I do read and connect with family and friends that way. Last week, I received an e-mail from my friend Gretch with the subject line "You Lucky Dog..." Grechen had discovered before I did that I had won a gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop on their Facebook page. How cool is that!!! In this contest, the folks at FQS were trying to get over 3,000 Likes for their page. Of course, I clicked the "like" button. I do read their posts regularly. Lady Luck stepped in and I won a gift certificate for $50.00 in this contest. I was stunned. Definitely surprised!

Once a week, there is a special on the FQS Facebook page just for Facebook fans. Last week, the entire Wrapped in Paisley collection by Kansas Trouble was on sale for 50% off. It was a one day special. I quickly pressed the buttons and ordered the fat quarter collection of Wrapped in Paisley using my "lucky" gift certificate. My parcel arrived by UPS on Wednesday.
This Moda fabric line is luscious. I wanted to purchase some yardage on our trip in June to the quilt shop in Blue Ridge, but remembered my fabric budget and resisted.
This fabric is "speaking to me." I'm dreaming of a new project. Thank you Kimberly and Jocelyn from Fat Quarter Shop!!! What a generous give-away! What luck!

Congratulations on your win and wow, those fabrics do look gorgeous.

I want to thank you for telling me about the Boswick "thread" series. I am reading the third book now - I can never keep the titles straight - and just loving every word of it. I feel like these ladies have become my quilting buddies too!
