New Sewing Machine
I got home from church last night and started yelling "I won it, I can't believe I won it" just over and over again. My poor husband is like "what?" "Are you sure you won?" "Don't tell anybody in case you are wrong" LOL He couldn't believe it either. I have a little cupcake shaped piggy bank where I was saving up for a new Janome. Now that money can go towards our new house this year.
Janome was having a friend to friend facebook challenge. Everyday they had a new article on their website at Janome.com until they reached 20,000 likes on FB. Everyday I would leave a comment to enter. I would pray every time I left a comment also. Well, I won! Not one machine but two! My friend Marie said that when she retires she would like to learn to sew but did not have a sewing machine, I told her to pray that I win and I would give her one if I did! I also won a mystery bag full of books, patterns and I think material, I'm not sure what all is in the bag.
It was just announced today that I won so I have not received my package yet, but I can't wait! I have never won anything big before! This just proves that God does answer prayer!
In celebration of winning, I will have an apron giveaway. Only US residents please though.
I will be giving away an apron that looks just like this one. To enter just leave a comment below, but you need to be a follower either through blogger or Google Friend Connect. You need to leave an email address so I can let you know if you win. If you mention this giveaway on Facebook or your blog, let me know is a separate comment and I will enter your name again. I will draw a winner next Monday on January 23.
If you want to make your own apron like this, here is a tutorial:
Good luck on winning!

Here is what they said on their website:
We Hit Our Goal Thanks to YOU!
We made it to 20, 000 Likes! on Facebook late Friday the 13th, which turned out to be a very lucky day for one lucky winner!
We started just five weeks ago with a goal to grow our Janome community. And, late on Friday the 13th, we saw our Likes! on Facebook roll over the 20,000... and they've continued to climb!
Our random winner, drawn from the thousands of comments logged between 12/12/11 and 1/13/12, was Missy Shay from Mansfield, Texas. Missy wins: TWO great Janome Pink Ribbon machines plus a giant mystery bag full of patterns, books, fabric, notions and more from our featured Janome friends. She tells us she'll be sharing the prize with her good friend, Marie.
We hope you enjoyed getting to meet some of our Janome friends; we've certainly enjoyed finding out a bit more about all of you. The comments posted on the articles since 12/12/11 were truly wonderful. We laughed, we cried, we were bowled over by the LOVE for Janome.
We plan to continue bringing you news of what folks are doing in the world of sewing and craft: both the celebrities and the "regular" sewing enthusiasts like YOU. That is the goal of growing the Janome community: to draw inspiration from those around us and use it to jump start our own creativity.
Thank you for being a part of the Janome community and helping us grow!"
Have a great day!
