I finally won something! And it's great! It's a Beam and Read light from Patsy Thompson. I am so happy. It just made my week!!!!
I finally ordered me a camera (I've been using my cell phone camera, which takes lousy pictures) and it's a digital camera. I'm excited. Now I can place great pictures on my blog. And I will be taking lots more pictures with it.
I sent Fabraholic her giveaway of a line of fabric. I also put in some other fabrics as well. She lives in Germany so I don't know if she received it yet. Probably not. I sure hope she likes it.
Anyway, I WON a giveaway. I've entered every giveaway I came across and had no luck. Just a couple of minutes ago I checked my email and there it was! A message from Patsy saying I won. It took me a little bit to actually understand it. I thought "this isn't happening to me" for a while and then I hooted and hollered for about one minute before I wrote her back and thanked her so very much and gave her my address so it could be mailed to me. What a wonderful person she is.
We get lots of black outs out here in eastern Oregon. I live in a very tiny town on the side of a beautiful mountain. We get so much snow all winter long and we also lose our electricity, so this beam and read is going to be wonderful! I can read quilt mags, do hand binding, and hand work in the dark!! It also has a magnifier that you can attach to it. I use cheater reading glasses. I have about 8 of them. I spread them out thru out my house so I have at least one in every room. Now, with the Beam and Read Magnifier, I can do so many things without those pesky glasses. Hooray!!! I am soooooo honored to win this.
Well, I guess you know how happy I am. Now I am going to go sew some binding on some of my quilts and wait for my light to do the hand sewing part.
