A Much Better Day...

One thing with bad days...they are often followed by better days...
Yesterday was a day I stuggeled with everything...nothing went as I wanted it to...so I guess it was not so clever to sit infront of the sewingmachine and hoping to achieve something...probably should have watched TV all day...*LOL*

Today it´s another day...My son woke me up and said we beat Czechia in World Hockey Championships in Canada.... Yiiipiiie!!
Ate my breakfast...nothing strange happened...(didn´t drop my sandwich...this time...)...Managed a little sewing...finished some sewing...
At lunchtime the mailman came...loaded the mailbox full with a lot of goodies...;D
...two wonderful magazines...oh they were filled with a lot of things I would like to do...which one to start...Hmmmm...there were a lot...;D...and I had been given noticed by Jo at Vintage Lane Stitches....
...that I was supposed to be in Homespun...and she was right..It is me...look up in the right corner...;D... So I´m sort of famous in Australia now...*LOL*
When I read that article...I remembered what a fantastic trip I had with my friends to Norway... and having a class with Leanne Beasley (that beats a lot of things)...that is one wonderful memory...really a GOOD day ...indeed...and this is not all...
One month ago I was lucky to win again...this time I was the lucky one at The Calico Horse...and today my prize came...finally...one Jellyroll and one charmpack!!!!...;D Thanks Donna!!!
...and I´m so happy to have my own ME fabrics now...have an idea of what I want to do with the fabrics...but have to think a bit...

And later this day I ordered five...or was it six... new quiltingbooks for our quiltinggroup sponsored by SV Nord...*S*
And we all are feeling well...even my aching tooth and foot doesn´t bother me so much today...*LOL*
So ...have I had a good day or what!!!

And speaking of Giveaways...Kerry at My Favourite Things are having a giveaway again... So please visit her ...hope it will be your turn to win this time...even if I´m hoping for beeing lucky one more time....I really do love her patterns!!!

And Karen at My Yellow Farmhouse is also having a wonderful giveaway...so check her out!!

So I hope that you all are having Good Days...and if it´s a Bad Day...tomorrow is another Day!!

  8. How exciting to receive all that fun mail and then find out that you are famous, too - it's not every girl that is in a quilt magazine *s* Way to go.
    Can't wait to see what you make with the fabrics. They look so cheerful.

  12. I was very excited to see your picture in Homespun. Before I read the caption I thought 'I think I know her - then I realised it was you. It's great to have such a famous blogging buddy.
    Lucky you winning that lovely jelly roll and charm pack. I'm sure you'll make something gorgeous with them. Hope you're having lots of good days now. The bad ones aren't much fun.
