My Exciting (to me!) News.... :-) (edited 7-8)

Look what the nice UPS man dropped off at my house yesterday afternoon....

with 3 dies of my choice - LOVE these - don't you!?! :-)
All compliments of Carolyn at AccuQuilt! Yes, I actually have my own now - woohooo!!!  And I will be doing some "testing" and "reviewing" soon and then, guess what?!
I will be giving one away - WITH 3 dies of the winners choice!

I also bought 3 other dies - the Tumblers, Hexagon and Value - oh my - I see a new addiction!
I had to try it out - and let me tell you, I can see this being one of the best things since sliced bread!!  I cut out over 100 "tumbler" pieces in just minutes - it's really amazing....


Now, to get them sewn up & see what I can find to cut out next.... ;-)
See, I told you it was exciting - to me - and to one lucky winner when I host the giveaway at least! :-)
Check back (hopefully) soon for more details.

Thanks again to AccuQuilt - LOVE it already!!

**Edited to add - I didn't actually "win" this - it was sent to me directly by AccuQuilt to test & reveiw - and I get to keep it & give another one away.  Just wanted to clear up any confusion!

Oh joy! How happy I am for you - since I wasn't a winner! :-) Don't you know this is JUST what I need to add to my collection of craft projects for retirement? Can't wait to know what you think of it -- and does it sew, too? Just teasin', don't you know!

You are going to have fun with this tool- I only read good things about them all over blog land. Someone is going to be very happy when it is your turn to pick a name to win one.
There are some wonderful quilts being made using this tool.
Have fun.
