Tell Her What She's Won!!

First, I want to apologize to Aunt Spicy for taking so long to post this. I'm really awful about acknowledging kindness. It's not that I didn't appreciate it when it came, it's that I...well, I just suck.

So, anyway, back in, what, February? I won a Kona Color Card in the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway. When I was notified that I won, I started to laugh. And I laughed, and laughed, and laughed. Oh, how I wanted the Kona solids charm pack set. I have a really cool quilt design that will require all the charm squares, and I was eager to win it. Instead, I won a Kona Color Card. To add to my collection. At the time, I already had 2, and now I was going to get a 3rd? Ha. Haha. Haha. Sigh.


I emailed Kelly and Aunt Spicy and Erica and made some joke about now having a 3rd color card. Aunt Spicy replied that she would gladly trade me some fabric for my color card. I was pretty stoked! She has great taste in fabric, and I know the color cards can be hard to find, so it was a win-win proposition! (note: I knew full well that I was getting the better end of the deal!)  :o)

(a color card for that JACKPOT pile of fabric? I totally scored.)

I contacted Robert Kaufman and asked them to send the color card to her, and she went through her stash and sent me some of her coveted Jennifer Paganelli fabrics.

I consider using them for every project I've done since I got them, but nothing seems quite right. I want it to be meaningful, something that will always reflect my sweet friend, Aunt Spicy.

One day I will use it to make something wonderful!



  1. You are funny! I totally scored with the color card! I desperately need it!

  2. How thoughtful of her to swap!!!

    Once I read you were adding your THIRD card I started laughing too!!!


What are you sewing?
