Lucky Me!!!

I've been a very lucky girl recently!! It's like Christmas hasn't stopped...

The first parcel contained these lovely selvedges all the way from Portugal. I won them in a giveaway held by Daisy at the blog By Daisy. The funny thing is she was offering 3 prizes and you could say which you preferred. I was the only one who wanted the selvedges but she thought it only fair that she still choose randomly. My name came out of the hat!!! Obviously meant to be. Thanks Daisy!!

A couple of days later another package was waiting on my doorstep. This one was from Melody at The House on the Side of The Hill blog. She had a secret giveaway on New Years Day where she randomly selected the winner from her followers. I found out when I checked in to see what what was happening on her blog. This are the lovely things I received. Thanks Melody!!
Yesterday when I got home from work there was an envelope with a US stamp in my mailbox. It was my sweet house block from Beth at Love, Laugh, Quilt. To celebrate our wonderful bloggy neighbourhood she asked people to send her a house block. She then distributed them in groups of nine to selected winners. Everyone who participated in the project received a little house to play with. Thanks Beth!!
I had to play with my house straight away!! I used some of Daisy's selvedges and some of Melody's charm squares, a few bits and pieces from my scrap bin and came up with this...
A heart to show my heartfelt thanks!! I'm not sure if it'll stay small or grow into a quilt...
Talking of giveaways don't forget my giveaway in the previous post, it's still open until next weekend so if you haven't left a comment you've still got time. It's been so interesting hearing about everyone's sewing machines!!

Cheerio

You sure are a lucky girl! No chance of winning Lotto now but then you've already won that with GBF.

How fun to find wonderful treats in the mail. I really like what you are doing with the house square. It is fun to see what different people are doing with it.

Congratulations on your wins. Like what you did with the house block. i also participated in the neighbourhood project Beth organised. I was lucky enough to win a set of the blocks. Still waiting for them to turn up. It would be cool if I got your block seeing as you are literally just down the road (Great Western Hwy) from me.
