Awwwww I'm never gonna get there

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

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+ 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 that's my excuse for not making another quilt's 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 was almost as exciting as if I'd won a GO! myself.
