Oct 6, 2010
(the day I lost a bet)
*
I received an e-mail on October 6, 2010 that had me jumping for joy - I couldn't believe it - I read it, closed it, read it again, closed it - logged off; logged on - read the e-mail again and realized it was real. :-)
*
The e-mail meant I'd lost a bet. Why? Well, approximately a month ago I received an e-mail from a blog friend telling me that she bet me I'd win GO! Fabric Cutter from Accuquilt before she did. She didn't realize that I'd quit entering all the GO! Cutter giveaways (teehee) but I took her bet and raised her a fat quarter - LOL! Now three fat quarters were on the line. LOL!
*
I owe her three fat quarters because the e-mail on Oct 6 from Carolyn at Accuquilt said my blog had qualified to win a GO! Fabric Cutter plus three dies of my choice and one with three dies to giveaway! WooHoo!!! Carolyn, thank you so much - you made me one very happy quilter. :-)
*
My GO! arrived while I was in Texas but you can bet my sweet Mr Daze and I tore open the box soon after I got home (yes, he's very excited, too). I've played with it a bit but I'm a little intimidated so it's a slow process - LOL!
*
Here's Nibbles, a member of The Wabbit Daze Gang sitting on the unopened box waiting for me to tear it open. :-)
And, my shiny new GO! Fabric Cutter with the bonus 'Value Die" that comes with the GO!
*
Can you guess which three additional dies I received with my GO! Cutter?


Stayed tuned for a post very soon showing you a project or two I've done with my GO! Cutter!
*
Before I sign off I need to publicly thank a couple of blogger friends who tried hard to help me win a GO! Cutter! Here's a big HUG - thank you!!!!
*
Have a wonderful day - I've been very scattered this week - can't seem to settle down to stitch or sew!!!
*
In Friendship!

Piecefulafternoon said...

Woweee woweeee - I had hoped to be one to be able to give away a GO cutter - but alas, it is not to be.

Hope those wabbits behave themselves and don't cut anything they aren't supposed to.

Awww! Congrats to you!! There's nothing like a 'quilter's' determination!! We are a force to be reckoned with...whether the rest of the world realizes it or not.

I knew it!! Congrats, Darlene! You're going to have a ton of fun with it. Someone asked me tonight about its pros and cons. I said the only con I could think of was that I can't sew fast enough now!

Does this mean you get to give away a Go! cutter soon? I'm trying so hard to get one of these :) They look so fun to play with. My problem would be finding a new excuse to call in sick to work every day! I think they might catch on after a week or so :) COngrats!
