Thanks to everyone who responded to my 2013 planning survey! I heard from 18 of you (nearly 26% of followers), which is pretty awesome, especially when you know an excellent return rate on unsolicited direct mail is 2%. The comparison may be apples to oranges, but I'm sticking to it.
I'll delve into the results more later, but want to let you know that the two winners have been chosen by Mr. Random. They are:
Janne Braukman, one of my very first followers, who lives in Germany...
I hope you all thoroughly enjoyed your holidays. I made out like a fabric bandit!
My mom sent me some lovely Kate Spain yardage and coordinating prints.
My mother-out-law sent me a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop, so I got a FQ bundle of the full line of Salt Water by Tula Pink and tacked on a few more yards of the lovely octopus print for a back.
My main squeeze bought the loveliest stack of bright Moda cross weaves for me from Pixie Spit on Etsy...
...as well as an Accuquilt Go! Baby fabric cutter. Woohoo! My guy's a real keeper.
I have a few dies to go with it and had an overflowing scrap bin, so I spent a couple of hours sorting them into their proper boxes. The cat decided that the large box with a soft layer of fabric in the bottom MUST be for her.
The dear thing! I didn't want to move her and even left her to sleep there when I went down to bed.
We also made all our goals at the office this year, so with a portion of my surprise end-of-year bonus, I bought a half-yard bundle of Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelets from my cousin Amanda. (Westwood Acres on Etsy)
So much fun to be had in my studio! Did you get anything that made you giggle like a kid again?
