It's GOing to be a great birthday month...

I got an email this morning, right out of the blue, totally unexpected and I had to read it three times before I decided that it wasn't spam or a joke....! It was from Carolyn at Accuquilt telling me that my blog (me, moi, myself) had been chosen to receive one of these....









....I know, I know, big time exciting, I can hardly believe it myself, really how lucky can a person be. It's my birthday next week, do you think the girls at Accuquilt knew? What a fabulous birthday surprise!! I've seen them around blogland, who hasn't, and I've entered giveaways to win one. I even had a look at the Accuquilt stand at AQC back in April and now I get to own and use one.... WooHoo!!




I got to choose three dies with it and I decided that I would go for the circles first, I use a lot of circles in my applique so this is going to make them so easy to cut out and I chose two others that are tricky cutting shapes, apple core and a small drunkards path block. Great for scrappy quilts!! But wait, there's more...!! Isn't that what they always say on the telly, well this time there is more....
The best bit is that I get to give one away. Yep. Giveaway a GO! Baby Cutter, oh gosh I'm so excited, did I say that already. As soon as the GO! Baby Cutter arrives (how awesome does that sound) I get to try it out and show you all how it works, scrappy quilt coming up I think!! Then we'll have a giveaway and the fabulous people at Accuquilt will give one to the lucky winner. How easy is that, how exciting is that, how generous are they?? It's definitely a 'pinch me' day for me.....




Stay tuned 'cos you know how excited I get......

Hey, congrats! Will be so anxious to see what you do. Love your choice of dies! I've started to cut out some hexies for a flower garden quilt....ready for some hand work after all the machine things I've been doing. How much easier it would be if I could use one of the GO Babies! Oh yes, Happy (early) Birthday;-) Doreen
