oh WOW I won!

So, I often enter giveaways and whatnot, even the occasional lottery ticket, but winning anything is a rare event.  Imagine my surprise to get an email today from Kennis at Itch To Stitch saying I won one of the two prize packs from her birthday giveaway!  When replying to her email, I remarked that hubby said I should get a lotto ticket since this doesn't happen too often.  When Kennis sent back my codes, she remarked hubby may be right and she thinks I ought to buy a ticket as well!  LOL  Sounds like she has a sense of humor.

Itch to Stitch Birthday Celebration Prize Pack 1
  • 4 patterns from Itch to Stitch
  • 1 pattern from The Wolf and the Tree
  • 1 pattern from Laela Jeyne Patterns
  • 1 pattern from Stitch Upon a Time
  • 1 pattern from Wardrobe by Me
  • 1 pattern from 5 out of 4 Patterns
  • $25 gift card from Bella Sunshine Designs
  • 1 PDF pattern & $10 shop credit from Striped Swallow Designs
  • $10 store credit from Candy Castle Patterns
  • 1 PDF pattern of choice (except bundles) from Susana Coelho de Melo Cunha
  • $15 credit from Flosstyle
Candy Castle Patterns and Stitch Upon A Time are time-sensitive, so I surfed over to their sites first.  I finally decided on the very practical mens' and womens' sweater pattern from Candy Castle.  Looking through Stitch Upon A Time, I saw the exact thing I was thinking about this morning during milking: women's boxer briefs.  Well, that made my decision quite easy!

That's as far as I've gotten so far.  This is actually a little overwhelming, such a big pattern splurge.

Oh, and before Mom calls me out, a big public THANK YOU to Kennis and her friends for putting together such a big prize pack.  I suppose I ought to thank the software program for picking me as well ... LOL.  Nah, we don't thank computers.  Still, what a novelty to win so much.

Well, congratulations! Did you ever buy a lottery ticket?

I just noticed this: in the post with the photo of the page with the shoulder pads, you posted the author incorrectly. It is Power Sewing by Sandra Betzina, not Nancy Zieman.

Fixed, thanks for catching that. Not sure how I mixed that up. I still haven't got that lottery ticket yet.
