I won a giveaway contest! Hooray!

Well, as some of my Facebook friends may already know, I entered a ton of giveaway contests a few weeks back at Sew Mama Sew. I won a pair of earrings, but the woman wouldn't ship them to me from Canada. Boo hoo!

So, I kept on trying to win something after Christmas by entering other contests. For those of you new to the sewing blogs, many bloggers have sponsors who provide fabric, patterns, or other items as a prize in a random drawing giveaway. Maybe I'll host a giveaway someday.

Last week as I was reading through all the blogs I follow, I came across a contest at Little Birdie Secrets for a chance to win three patterns from Lilac Lane from Melissa Stramel. Of course I entered the contest, and a few days later, Melissa emailed me that I had won! I was sewVery excited that I did a celebration dance for the family.

I picked out the three patterns I wanted, and Melissa put them in the mail right away. I chose the Cherished Dress for Girls, the Cherished Doll Dress, and the Joy Bag patterns. You can find them all here. They arrived here on Wednesday, and I can't wait to try them out. I bought some beautiful designer fabrics for Christmas (thanks again, Daddy!) that should be just perfect for making Ella a new dress and me a new bag. I'll be sure to post pictures of the finished product(s) later.

Winning something good is always fun!
