I'm getting "better"

/ Thursday, 27 October 2011 /
I remember that old commercial for hair colour that had the tag line "You're not getting older - you're getting better!" That's a comfort, isn't it?  Especially today, because it's my birthday!  Here's a card I got today from two of my former students who are both in their 20's. 
Honestly, I don't fret about my age - it is what it is, and another year above ground is reason for a party!
So what do quilting bloggers do when they can't invite everyone over for a game of bingo and bottle of beer? Host a giveaway!  Here's what we've got:

Behind Door Number 1:  Two charm packs, one of Maison de Garance and one of Lumiere de Noel
DSC_0839
Behind Door Number 2:  Three charm packs of Clermont Farm
DSC_0838
Behind Door Number 3:  Five half meters of Jay McCarroll Habitat
DSC_0840

Here's what we're going to do for entries.  Respond "True" or "False" to the statement in the post above yours.  For example, imagine the comment above yours says "The person below me has seventeen children." You would say (probably - lol) "False.  The person below me [put something hilarious/poignant/thought-provoking/nosy/interesting  here]."  Get it? I'll leave the first comment to get the ball rolling.
This giveaway is open to all, with no obligation to become a follower or broadcast this on social media.  I'll draw the winners next Friday evening, November 4.
