I Won! I Won! I Won!!!

OK, you've probably got the idea by now that I WON something!! :0) Now, I'm rather excited about that BEFORE you get to the prize, cos I NEVER win ANYTHING!! I've lost count of how many give-aways I've joined, raffle tickets I've bought, prize forms I've filled out ... and I NEVER win! Oh ... well, except once when I was at Uni and I entered a "Woman's Day" romance writing competition ... I won a HUGE bottle of perfume ... that made me sneeze! :0) But apart from that ... I just don't seem to be 'lucky'.

However ... my luck took a turn last week. While I was sulking about the nasty head cold ambushing me, I took a bit of a cyber-stroll through blogland to cheer myself up and catch up with my blogging buddies I'd been too busy to catch up with the week before. All was uneventful (but fun and informative, of course!!) until I popped into Melly's "Melly & Me" blog. I started to read her post announcing the winners of her most recent give away ... and nearly fell off my chair when I saw "Kris" listed as one of the winners. Hmmm ... well, I've discovered there are a few other bloggers with the same spelling as me, so I still didn't get excited. Then, I ran the computer cursor over the name ... and saw the link come up as "http://tagalongteddies.blogspot.com". WAIT! That's ME!! Must be a mistake. Move the cursor away ... put it back ... nope, still comes up with MY blog address! Maybe I'm sicker than I thought and I'm hallucinating (at least there's no pink hippopotamuses dancing before my eyes ... ALTHOUGH, being on Melly's blog ... it could happen!! Tee! Hee! Hee!) OK, one more sanity check here before I get excited ... move the cursor ... move it back ...
YIPPEE!!! I WON!!!
Happy Dance! Happy Dance! Oh wait ... WHAT did I win?!?!?! Tee! Hee! Hee! Let me show you, cos it arrived in today's mail ...



I won a copy of the latest "Melly & Me" Pattern, 'Feathered Friends', signed by the lovely Melly. Isn't this a seriously CUTE bag!!!! And, OK, I won't be making it in THAT colour, but it's pictured here on top of part of my stash, so you can see that I should be able to find SOMETHING to make it in ... hmmm ... which fabrics would look good?? SIGH! I had to be good and not start making it straight away cos the ol' "To Do" list would shriek like a Banshee at me for attention, but I can play with my fabrics and plan ... right???! Thank you soooooooo much, Melly - and Rosie!! - for my prize! It was certainly a lovely thing to find out and help cheer me up last week when the nasty head cold had a hold of me and it sure was nice to get FUN mail today instead of bills!!! (it's THAT time of year!!) I love dropping into Melly's blog, as I never know what new critter there will be to greet me - there HAS been a pink hippopotamus before!! And the most GORGEOUS dodo who is still on my "One Day" wish list! Tee! Hee! Hee! I just love the sense of fun this lovely pattern range captures!! And Melly has a new logo, too, so if you haven't popped over for a visit for a while - treat yourself!! And while you're there, you can take a peek at photos of the yummy projects in Melly's recently released super-special book "Kaleidoscope".

And now that I've exhausted myself with happy dancing, I'm off to do some more stitching - stay tuned for more sneaky peeks! What will be revealed next .....??!! Til next time - Bear Hugs!

CHEERS!
KRIS

I bet that put a spring in your step Kris. Nothing like a surprise gift to lift ones spirits. Hope that cold is now long gone too.
