Winner, Winner, that's ME!

Last Sunday morning, before getting ready for church,
I checked my email and read a few of my favorite blogs.
Imagine my excitement when I read
Lynne's blog  and saw this:

And the winner of the Sew Fresh Fabrics bundle is...

... well I am going to be a bit sneaky here 
because the winner is a regular reader on my blog 
so I am going to give a few hints and see whether 
she realises it is her failing which I will 
of course email her.  Is this you:

1.   Are you a James Bond fan?  
Not just any old James Bond but one in particular.
I have a secret crush on Pierce Brosnan!
2.   Ti piacono i pomodori?
I've been trying to learn Italian for 4 years!
3.   Will next year be ruby red?
Next year Mr. Romance and I will celebrate our
40th wedding anniversary!

(Lynne had read my blog post where I posted 7 things 
about me you might not know 
to come up with this clever way
to announce the winner of her contest.)
If these questions literally mean nothing to you then 
it's probably not you but they are 
pretty cryptic so think twice.  
If it is you, you will have this number next to your comment:

I knew it was me but checked the numbers and I was number 111. 
Yeah for me!
Lynne had run a giveaway contest on her blog the week before 
and I was the lucky winner of this beautiful set of fat quarters.
The giveaway bundle consists of 8 fat quarters: Grand Tour from 
Victoria and Albert books in both colors, bottles in both colors, 
birds in both colors and cream lines and green lines from the 
Word Play collection by Bernatex. 
 

The gift was sponsored by Sew Fresh Fabrics on Etsy.
Thank you Lynne and Sew Fresh Fabrics!
Now what should I make with these yummy prints?

So jealous! I love that set of prints. I can't wait to see what you do with them!

Oh my gosh, have those fabrics already arrived with you?! Hurray?! I also said the bit about tomatoes because you grow tomatoes but I didn't know the word "heritage" in Italian so couldn't add that bit LOL. After University and before I started work, I spent a year as an au pair in Rome, probably one of the craziest and most fun years of my life, and just love everything about the country, the food, the language etc. My sister lives in North London and went into her local coffee shop recently with her smallest daughter and there was nowhere left for her to sit but one kind gentleman gave up his seat for her. Cna you guess who it was? She said he is even more handsome in person! And congrats on the Ruby - how wonderful! We're at 19 years this year so silver isn't a million miles away!

How exciting! I am in love with that fabric line and have been wanting to buy some. And what a fun way to find out you had won!
