Pleasant Surprises....

I entered a contest a little while ago to design Amy Butler's name tag for one of her quilting shows. It was hosted by Kelly of I Have a Notion. Unfortunately I didn't win :( .....
but I received an AWESOME surprise in my email after reading about the winner. One of Amy Butler's assistants asked for all contest participants addresses. I immediately sent my information gitty in anticipation of a small gift from Amy herself. I thought if I was really lucky they might send a pattern, but figured I would get something smaller. A few days later I got the package in the mail and this is what I got!!!

Can you believe it!! THREE patterns and a fat quarter of fabric. The patterns are for the Nappy Bag, Weekender Travel Bag, and the Mini Dress, Tunic & Tops. I was blown away to say the least. What a fabulous prize for not even winning the contest! I am so excited to dive into these patterns. I am a huge fan of Amy Butler's and after this incredibly nice gift I am even a bigger fan.

Thank you to everyone at Amy Butler!!! You made a fellow crafter one happy camper :)

Hope you have had some pleasant surprises recently!

Take care mucho,

  1. That was very generous of them! That was/is indeed a surprise. Are you still volunteering with the lounge? I came back in September and hope to be able to come back next week. Take care!
