YOU ALL WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS....YOU JUST WILL NOT!!

I am beside myself.....

Do you hear a scream!!!

No worries, it is only me.

Screaming for pure joy!! I am here to tell you, ,,,, if I did not talk to Carolyn myself, I would think I was dreaming.

I actually thought someone was playing a joke on me....knowing how bad I wanted to win the AccuQuilt Go on "I HAVE A NOTION'S" BLOG......and knowing that I threatened the winner....and the winner can tell you that no....I did not show up on their doorstep to play with their AccuQuilt Go.

I should have brought me some depends before we had our chat on the phone...oh yes, I am not ashamed to tell you....that I almost wet myself talking to Carolyn. I wanted to hug her through the phone....I would have too....

but then she would have accused me of stalking. Sorry Kelly, she is my new best friend now.

Okay...okay enough rambling......but I am just tooo excited.....(and you should be excited too)...this includes one of you....

So....after my walk today I got home and found this in my email.


Dear Barb,



AccuQuilt has been very impressed with your blog! Because of this, we would like to speak with you regarding a possible GO! Giveaway for you and your followers. We would love to send you a free AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter along with three of our top selling dies for you to play with and post a review/discussion about the GO! Fabric Cutter. Once you submit the post to us, we will happily send you another GO! Cutter along with dies to do a giveaway on your website
.

------------------------------------------------------------

Oh my gosh!!!!!!! Now you see why I am jumping....Now you see why I need depends?


I get a free AccuQuilt Go....and I will be able to giveaway one to one of you as well....oh.....heart don't fail me now.... I just want to hug everyone...not just Carolyn.....

So...one is on its way to my house. I can not get home fast enough.....

Below is one of the dies that she is sending. she is also sending the 2 1/2 inch and the tumbler.....oh...oh .... oh... Thanks Carolyn.




So I went on their site

you can just click on the highlighted..."site" above and it will take you to their site. I also have them on facebook too...but anyways...I went and took a look at all of their fun stuff....and it is awesome!!




If you have not been to their site, do go and check out all the wonderful things they have. They have projects, patterns, a sale on some of the dies...oh they are amazing.

You all know that once I get on something I stay on something...so you have not heard the last of the AccuQuilt Go from me...and...

Stay tuned for my project that I will do with the AccuQuilt Go....and then.....for the giveaway.

I told Carolyn that I did not know which was more fun, me getting a cutter or me being able to give one away.

I wonder if Carolyn feels the same excitement when she is able to give one away. I think she does....what kind of job would that be, giving and giving to people.

Thanks Carolyn......and AccuQuilt GO.....

Congrats Barb! Couldn't have happened to a nicer person! I was wanting that cutter too, but wondering if it really is faster cutting for regular things like tumblers and squares...we can get pretty fast with our rotoary cutters...so hope you have that in your review.
Now, I'll contact Depends and see if they want to send you some of those for your 'happy problem' and maybe give a package away with your giveaway for the next winner.....lol....so glad I'm already a follower....

Of course I KNOW that your blog is better than mine, but someday maybe a company will pick ME for such an honor. now which company do I want to contact me? With my luck it will be Hair Club for men!

you KNOW I will be entering your giveaway.

Sarcastic Quilter said...

Fantastic! I always knew you were destined for great things. Congratulations on the offer and I look forward to your review b/c I've been contemplating one of these myself.

ACtually, the hubs has got me contemplating it. I think he's seen it in a couple places I've dragged him to and each time he asks if I would like one. hehe - good man, looking for gifts for me. :D But I digress, I'll look forward to your review!

Tonya's Sewing Room said...

WOW, what a honor! How terrific for you. You'll have peeps coming out of the woodwork for such a prize. Oh, if I could be so lucky to win that. oh my, oh my........I can't wait. I'm so happy for you I may even wet myself. Hey, I do it all the time. haha WOW, go barb!

quilterfaye said...

Congratulations Barb, I look forward to reading your blogs about accuquilt. I've considered buying one because I think it would be helpful because of my heritary tremour but I'm not sure. Hope you can give me honest input. Thanks

quiltmom said...

How truly wonderful for you - You are such a deserving winner- you contribute so much to the quilting community. I will look forward to see what you make with the cutters.
I bought some dye cut shapes from Keepsake quilting to make a baby quilt as well as some leaves to add to my slasher quilt.. Having some special cut shapes to try applique is a really cool idea.
My heartiest congratulations, BarB.
Regards,
Anna

Mary said...

You go girl!! What fun you will have. I love your blog, you are always so upbeat and exciting. Have a great playtime!!!

wordmama said...

Wow! That is really cool! I have been kind of skeptical about how the Accuquilt Go can be as amazing as everyone says it is. I felt the same way about a certain brand of sewing machine until my husband won one in a drawing. Now I really love it. So, I'm ready to be impressed by what YOU can do with the Accuquilt Go. You are so gregarious and enthusiastic, I think they made a good choice.

Debi said...

OMG, how wonderful for you Barb! I am dancing the happy dance with you. I know how much you wanted one...now I need to win one too!

Judy C said...

Congratulations Barb, I coveted that AccuQuilt Go too, at least it went to someone who wanted almost as bad as me ;). Have fun Barb, and let us see all your projects.

sharon said...

Congratulations Barb! That is so wonderful! You really can get what you wish for sometimes! Sharonj.

Kim D. said...

Wow Barb, you so deserve the AccuQuilt Go.. Congratulations Girlfriend!! I'm jumping for joy for you right now. I loved reading your post about it when you entered and how excited you got. Now Don't let me miss out on the drawing, please oh please.. My new bestest friend in the whole wide world.. :^)

Joanne said...

FANTASTIC !!!!!!

Melinda Cornish said...

I am so happy for you Barb....you deserve it...I remember when you selflessly gave your sewing machine to a lady in samoa that lost hers....Maybe I will win one too......I cant wait to hear how you like it...Melinda

Kami said...

That is so exciting. Have fun playing with your new toy.

arlette said...

Ohhhhhh Barb, I'm so glad for you, you deserve to get surprises like that, you rock!!! can we make the happy dance now?, I'm going to envy your friendship with Carolyn, lol, she's so kind, thumbs up for you both!!!

OMG!!! I am so excited for you I am jumping with joy!!! Just seeing it as been at hospital since Thursday when my hubby sent for xray to check for pneumonia, giving him IV's antibiotics, and next thing we know he's whisked to ICU as found out not pneumonia but renal failure from one of his meds then another one kicked in on that deal too. Suppose to be there until Tues but bad patient. Creatinines droppoing so allowed to come home since five minutes away and go to dr. Mon for bloodwork to make sure still dropping.

SewCalGal said...
