My heart flutters a little as I post this because I won something truly amazing over the weekend!  I am still in shock about it!

As many of my loyal reads know, I purchased a wonderfully crafted fine drum carder from Ron Anderson of Fancy Kitty earlier in the year.  I had been wanting one for ages and was finally able to save up the money to buy one.  Around the same time that I made the purchase, I joined the Fancy Kitty ravelry group and have become an active member there.  It is probably the nicest bunch of fiber fanatics that I've been a part of online, and they discuss all kinds of fiber related topics there so it is a great place to learn.  Ron is also very generous and does a giveaway regularly that is usually based on a new membership number milestone at the ravelry group.  When the group hit 300 member last week, Ron did a fantastic giveway through an elimination drawing.  Guess who was the last name left?

YEP!  IT'S ME!!!!!!!!!!  I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had the choice of a drum carder or a picker.  Although I already have a lovely fine drum carder, I really wanted another one that could do art batts and thicker fibers.  I chose the medium 72/90 drum carder as my prize.  (A picker would have been nice too, but as a city dweller for now, I really have no storage place for it.)  Well, I just got an email notification today that Ron mailed it!  Its on the way!

I truly feel blessed to have won such an awesome prize!  And, I can not say enough good things about Ron as a person and craftsman.  His drum carders are wonderfully handmade!  His customer service can not be beat!  He's also the most generous businessman that I've encountered online.  Please take a minute to visit the Fancy Kitty site.  I also highly recommend that you join the Fancy Kitty ravelry group if you are at all interested in his products (you don't have to own one to be a part of the group). 

When the drum carder arrives, I'll be sure to post about it eventually.  Although, I'll probably be quite busy carding lovely batts for a while.  I wonder if I can crank one carder with each hand?  Hmmm... LOL!

And, a BIG thanks to Ron for his generosity!
