I won!

Earth Day was April 22. I am so glad that people are finally starting to get a grip on taking care of the earth.  I am not a tree hugger or an activist. But I firmly believe that we need to "be good stewards" and take care of the planet God provided for us to live on.  I think it doesn't hurt any one to recycle and I am really glad we finally moved to a neighborhood that does have recycling.  I think it is a good thing to get people thinking about saving energy and reducing waste.

 Alright moving along.... I follow a lot of blogs and it is a really good thing that they don't all post something new everyday! I am very selective in the blogs that I do follow and I am loyal at that. Mostly they are crafty, or cooking related or they are friends and family. I think they are a breath of fresh air and they give me tons of inspiration. I am constantly amazed by the plethora of wonderful ideas that these ladies come up with. And I am thoroughly enjoying the Craft Quality time with my kids while crafting or cooking.

Back to Earth Day and how that ties in with this blog post. On April 22, the Cottage indutrialist blog that I follow had a blog hop post about Earth Day and Organic Cotton fabric give-aways.  This was a blog hop where you entered to win from 12 different designers' blogs. The give away was different depending on the designer, but the prizes were all organic cotton fabric.  
I entered to win from all 12 blogs, and would you believe it ? I WON!!! I won the give away from Harmony Arts. The prize was 4 yards of organic cotton fabric of my choice from her website.

 I just received my fabric last night and I am so thrilled and feel so incredibly blessed. These fabrics are even more beautiful that the pictures or the website convey. The colors are rich and the feel of the fabric is so awesome. I just can't wait to see what I am going to create with the beautiful fabrics. I do have a plan for some of it. It will be gifted to my mom for Mother's day. By the way she loved them!!! Other pieces will become a dress for my girl or a bandanna for when I ride the bike but ultimately I am hoping that I will have a scrap left for that.

 Harmony from Harmony Arts designed these fabrics and is such a generous person THANKS HARMONY! I love her fabrics and  how natural they look.  So you all need to go over to her site and peruse her designs. You won't be sorry you did.

Congratulations! It is so fun to win STUFF! Especially good stuff. I won a pendant in the shape of a tree formed with wire and amythyst stones.

Love the fact that you won, sister! I have never won a thing in my life, let alone cool fabric, but I am super happy for you! Especially because I know that you will put it to good/creative/fun/inspiring use:0)

Happy sewing!
