IS ANYONE KEEPING COUNT?

Honestly ... I have lost count of how many Giveaways I have won! It is kinda getting embarrassing..... HOLD ON....NAH! IT'S NEAT! LOL
Yesterday I got another parcel in the mail....

And inside: lots of lovely fabrics from Catsngrams.... she is a fairly new blogger friend of mine... THANK YOU so much for having a Giveaway Chick! And thanks for posting all the way to New Zealand!
ABOVE: the fabrics I won! Totally gorgeous! Into the 'stash' they go!

In fact, I am going to be looking at ALL my fabrics today... as I intend to move them all upstairs into one of the linen cupboards.... so I have all my 'sewing stuff' in one place....

That means I have to move all the blankets and pillows down into the cupboards in the garage... so I am going to be busy!

I am thinking... it is a good thing the kids are home from school ! The little horrors can help me!

ONWARD.... I'm thinking... if I find some fabrics that I really don't think I will ever use.. I might just have a GIVEAWAY! Let's see....

RAIN... yep we've been getting quite a bit in the past few days... and it's lovely! It's cooled things down a lot... and my lawn is starting to turn GREEN again! Yaaaa.

ABOVE: My hallway now... *sigh*... what was I thinking? We have visitors coming in a few hours... and they are staying for dinner.. and I'm turning the house upside down? Derrrrr..... better get a move on!

ABOVE: Yaaa, DONE. As you can see, I don't have much of a 'stash' yet! But there are at least 3 projects in there waiting to be started! At least 3! AND I found two more PHD's! OOOps.

PHD = Projects Half Done.... so now I have 3 PHD's too. Damn, I don't like PHD's.

Jeanie: I'd like to think I'm just really lucky! *smiles*

End of Day: and it's been a lovely day! My visitor arrived with her little boy, who played with Brylee and Griffin all afternoon/evening. Jackie and I made some cards during the afternoon.. which was lovely... and when our men arrived home from work we got Fish and Chips for dinner... so I didn't even have to cook! It's been a really good, productive day. nite nite.

  2. You are really something, Chris! I don't usually advocate betting, but have you considered playing the lottery? You could bend your morals a bit on a big jackpot and repent later, ya know. :P

  8. I've never won fabric in any of the giveaway I enter in. Not that I need fabric! I have a walk-in tiny storeroom/bomb shelter in my flat dedicated to storing my fabric.

  9. I think people "make sure" you win 'cause you make such great things out of the winnings. Or maybe you are just really lucky.

  16. I remember seeing the photo of your lawn and thinking boy you really need some rain. I know it takes a while to come right as ours is the same after we've had one of the tents up for over week. Glad the greens coming through again.

    Congrats on the win. You are very organised, try as I might I can never get mine to stay like that for too long.

  20. I have a pretty large house with lots of rooms, but I can't find one just for sewing!! I usually use the dining room cause the table is big and the light is good, but I hate to set up the machine and get going and then have to pick everything up.

  21. My goodness, you are a Lucky Ducky, aren't you!!?? I can't say that I've won much in my life. I won $20 in Bingo about 5 years ago. That was the last time! lol...debbie
