Lucky, Ducky.

This is how i felt this week! Picture courtesy of this site
Despite a few challenges the last few days that have made me feel deflated and more than a bit frazzled, I have actually had a few good days with a couple of pieces of luck that I am really, doubly grateful for, considering I am on a fabric buying ban.  All self inflicted before my house gets swallowed up in stash!Is it wrong to want to move to find space for your stash?

For one, I won a competition over on the lovely Marys blog at Fairly Merry and my wonderful prize arrived at the weekend.  The great thing is, it was a fabric line I really wanted to try, but every time I got close I got a cost conscience and was a little concerned about spending the money.  So, when my fat eigth bundle of Oakshott Rubies arrived through my door I was absolutely delighted.  The colours are rich and deep, and I already have an idea I want to make with them.  They are absolutely beautiful, and I am looking forward to playing with them, but not until a few more things are off the big list for November!

Oooooh, mine all mine

I have obviously spent time stroking them, and they are soft and lovely, so I would like to say a big thank you to Mary, she has a fab blog, her current Granny Square quilt is terrific, and she always has lots going on- pop over and say hello, I'm sure she would love it.

And then yesterday, when it felt like it was going to be that kind of day when you should retreat to bed, I got a lovely email from Annie over at The Village Haberdashery, and I had won a £10 voucher for the shop, from the Summersville CAB survey I completed a few weeks back, yay!

It really was the major bright spot on an otherwise crappy day, thanks for making me smile Annie, and once again, go and have a look at what they have to offer, it's an exquisite shop, and I spent a bit of time looking last night at the Coming Soon section, it's looking amazing!

    1. No it's not wrong to want to move house, I 'seriously' would love to convert our loft so I can move up there.
    And 2. Snap!! I won a £10 CAB voucher yesterday too, woo hoo!!! Love the frazzled picture. Sarah x

  2. Congratulations Ange! Hope you're feeling better planning what to do with your prizes :)

  3. That stack of fabric is gorgeous! What will you do with it?

  4. You are a lucky ducky Ange. Nothing better than two wins to brighten up a crap day! Maybe you should by a lotto ticket. Gill

  5. Ange, when we were looking for a house my steadfast rule was 'I need a room for crafting', I was tired of doing it all on the dining room table. Congratulations of both your wins - I want to see what you make with your Oakshotts!

  6. Those prizes are a sure fire way of brightening up your day. As for more space.... A shed?! Di x


I love hearing your comments, so go ahead, say something, it really makes my day.......
