My FIRST WIN on Giveaways!

Since I decided to do my BIG Birthday Giveaway, I have found other free giveaways to enter. I received notice yesterday that I WON the C&T Publishing weekly giveaway for a copy of the Fantastiques Whimsies book. They call it the 21st Century version of Paper dolls, and can hardly wait to play with them.

I loved paper dolls as a kid and even machine embroidered out a complete set for my youngest grand daughter a few years ago. Years ago, my sister, Sally, and I would argue over who got the old Montgomery Ward catalog first when the new one was published. It wasn't easy to find the right "clothes" pictures turned the right way for the way the "model doll" was posing, but we sure had fun doing that.

Click on the "I Love Quilts" box on the RH side here and it will take you to their blog, announcing my win! I have the "purty" Pink quilt picture above it, and the link below....but for some reason haven't been able to combine them properly. I've just got to learn how to do this stuff better. Anyone give me some help on how to do this??

Now, doesn't it just make you want to enter my Birthday Giveaway??


  1. Congratulations on your win! I loved playing with paper dolls when I was a kid and did the same as you only with the Sears Catalog. Ahhhh, memories of a happy childhood.

  2. Congrats on your win! Enjoy!

  3. Enjoy your win......nice birthday surprise.

  4. Boy do you have the stuff to give away. it looks like enough to start your own fabric shop. Hope the person that wins this is a new quilter.
