Lucky Stars

I won something. This is very unusual. And yes I know most raffles/giveaways ect are chance based but everyone knows someone who always wins, don’t they?

Anyway I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from very berry handmade and my fabric house. The giveaway was for a subscription box, and my winning (random) comment was:

”Ooh they look lovely. I’m currently trying to teach myself to quilt (free motion) so lots of small projects on the go.”

Fast forward a week and a bit, and there was a box sitting on my doormat. The box I won was the Hobby Package and included:

Christmas fabric. The russian doll fabric is beautiful and the other two are fun.  I’m currently at a point of my life where I still go ‘home for christmas’ despite considering my flat home the rest of the year. This means that I don’t really have christmas things, the few ornaments I’ve bought myself, live with my parents. So I think these fabrics will go into my box under the bed until I find a project destined for them.

Ribbon. How beautiful are these these? Last year I made a really pretty christmas cards, with ribbon twisted into tree shapes (trust me on this one, thats not the best description).

Trim. I have a feeling this might end up on christmas cards aswell.

Other bits. This included: tree buttons, wooden buttons, a lacy star and some iron on things – Do they have a proper name?

And these buttons. Aren’t they gorgeous? I have no idea what they’ll end up on but I’m looking forward to using them.

So thank you to Ali and my fabric house and my lucky stars, I’m going to enjoy all the bits and pieces.
