I Won!... Again!

The stars are all aligned for me lately! Yesterday I visited just-the-most-awesome-store-ever for the first time -- Craft-o-rama! This hip store on stylish South Congress Avenue carries an edited selection of perfectly pretty fabrics, lots of sewing supplies, knitter's delights, quilter's tools and patterns, original art by locals, handmade jewelry and bags and lots of other cool stuff. Sensory overload hit me in the most blissful way as I selected some fabrics and patterns, and FINALLY signed up for a beginner's quilting class.

I can't wait for the quilting class. I have wanted to learn this for many moons now, but kept missing the classes at another quilting-only store across town. Imagine my delight when I was able to sign up for the cool kids' quilting class at just-the-most-awesome-store-ever yesterday! My class is in a few weeks. I'll post a photo of my quilt wall-hanging after that, but I'll give you a hint: the fabric I bought for it is gorgeous and perfectly matches the big bedroom color scheme of pale-blue, orange and brown.

As I payed a very reasonable price for my class, patterns and fabric delights yesterday, I saw a big jar with little slips of paper in it. A placard by the jar called me to the action of writing down my name and email address to enter a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to just-the-most-awesome-store-ever.

Yep, I gave away the punchline in the title, I won! (Again, after winning that $50 gift certificate to Warm Biscuit earlier this month.) Don't hate me because I'm lucky!
