Look What I Won!

I was just lamenting how I didn't win a Gidget II sewing table from Arrow Sewing Cabinets last year and would you believe I won one in their latest giveaway.
Every time they hit another 500 likes on Facebook they give away a table and last week they gave away several of them. I won the Wednesday drawing!
I've been sewing on the dining room table for years and now it looks like I'm going to take over the spare bedroom and turn it into a sewing room.  It's about time and besides, if anyone needs to sleep over for the night they can have the sofa pull out.
Of course I had to open it up and try it out even if I couldn't move it right into the soon to be sewing room.
And Cricket had to try it out.  She approves.
The best thing about winning the table was that I got to pick my favorite LQS and Arrow Sewing Cabinets gave them one too.  Rocking Chair Quilts is in Butler, Missouri and Lisa is one of the most fantastic shop owners I have run across.  I called her to let her know that I had won a table and so had my favorite LQS.  I asked if she knew of any quilt shops that might like one and her reply was, "Let me see if I can think of one.  Oh yeah, I know of one, mine!"  Her table gets delivered this week as she was in Michigan for the AQS show this last week. 
I also received this in a FQ swap put on by April over at  I love what my swap partner, Alison sent.   Thank You!  I may need to see if I can find some more of the Kate Spain  Terrain fabric as it's just so pretty.
I had a great week last week and it looks like this week will be the same as today started off with this going by my front door. 
Joy riding in a small town. 
Gotta Smile!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic week!
Arrow Sewing Cabinets is not a sponsor and they did not compensate me in any way for the acknowledgement.
