Sew Amazing Indeed!

I think you all know that I have been without a sewing machine for a few months now.  All my big plans for sewing Christmas gifts went out the window. I love my basic little sewing machine but the repairs were going to be $130.  I kept putting off repairing it each month until I could pull together the money.  My mother found a new Brother on sale for not much more than a repair would cost and got it as my Christmas present. It just came a few days ago and is sitting under the tree. As if things couldn't get any better...

I entered a contest with SKIP TO MY LOU in conjunction with "Melly Sews."   It was their Sew Amazing giveaway. Want to see the prize package?





Mouth-watering, isn't it?  I have wanted a serger for years. And $600 would buy a lot of fabric!  However, with over 47,000 entries, I didn't think any more about it.

I got an e-mail this morning saying that I WON!!!  I WON!!!  Christmas came early this year!  In the form of a prize package worth somewhere in the region of $1300!

My church bazaar will be next Fall and I can't wait to see all the things I can make with this prize package.  Everyone is getting homemade sewn gifts from me in 2014!!!

Thanks so much to one of my long-time favorite blogs, SKIP TO MY LOU.  What a gift!
