Sorry but this post won't have any pics, it's mainly just a sook post, and I didn't think a pic of me crying would look interesting anyway....lol
Why am I crying? A while ago, I read on someone's blog (sorry, can't remember whose blog though) that if she got 100 followers, she could sign up with Accuquilts Blog friends programme, and maybe get to host a GO! giveaway.....and win one of her own. So of course, I went and emailed Accuquilt to ask them about whether I, living in Australia, would be eligible as I had 175 followers.
I finally got an email back from them.....and the proverbial carrot has been moved, you now need 300+ followers....so my reason for crying is because once I get to (if I ever get there) 300, they'll have raised the carrot up to 500, and so on.
I think I've come to the conclusion that I'll never own one....so that's my excuse for not making another quilt yet....it's disappointment....at having to cut out manually with the spoils of a rotary cutter, still, I suppose that's still better than before rotary cutters were invented hey? lol
On a much, much brighter note though, my friend Melissa in Ohio won an Accuquilt GO! in Gene Black's giveaway....WTG Melissa. When I read that she'd won, I did a happy dance for her...it was almost as exciting as if I'd won a GO! myself.

P.S. After having my grizzle earlier, my bloggy friend Barb, very kindly gave me a head up about Micki's GO! giveaway....so I've been and entered...and if you'd like to win a GO! then head on off over to enter, by clicking here. Thanks for giving me the nod in Micki's direction Barb, and we'll talk turkey about the other thing in a few days hun.
