Giveaway Goodness & Where to Win A Go!

I think overall in the scheme of things winning an Emmy is not important. Let's get our priorities straight. I think we all know what's really important in life - winning an Oscar. -Ellen DeGeneres

I've had a string of luck with giveaways lately and I believe some public thank-you's are due!

First, to P. at The Way I Sew It, who hosted 5 fantastic days of giveaways leading up to her birthday, I want to thank you for these totally cool notecards {which I have had so much fun using} and the awesome black and white fat quarters {which I'm dreaming of using in a hundred different ways}. Check P. out. She is crafty, funny and tall. The perfect combination!

Next, a thank-you to Kaye at Miss Print who also hosted a huge birthday bash, and to John at Quilt Dad who was one of her prize sponsors, for this awesome Moda Marbles Jelly Roll. I totally Moda Marbles and have big plans for this baby.

I also owe a thank-you to Jen, who just had a big birthday party at Renalilly Designs, and her prize sponsor, Karen, of Karen's Quilting Service for 50% off all-over machine quilting. I've been putting off doing a baby quilt with minkee backing because I'm afraid it will be too bulky and heavy for me, a total novice, to do.

And last, but certainly not least, a thanks to Karen at Sew Many Ways, who does a Sharing on Sunday giveaway every week, just because she's awesome. I won during July, when her theme was Christmas in July and got this fantastic peppermint scented stationery with matching envelopes and stickers. I send out about a hundred Christmas cards every year and include a little family newsletter, so this is perfect!

While I'm running such a streak of good luck, I thought I'd see if I can win a Go! Cutter from AccuQuilt. To increase my chances of winning share the love, I'm posting about these awesome giveaways for another entry, {which technically decreases my chances of winning because you all want one too and will go enter these giveaways. But everybody loves lots of entries when they host a giveaway, so I'm playing along. But seriously, please don't go enter, because I really need want a Go! Cutter}.
