Simply Charming winner!

All of you are probably wondering IF I counted my charm packs.
Are you wondering?
Well I sort of did count.
By sort of, I mean....after I made it through what I think is all of them....
I sort of rounded...because I have a feeling I may have missed a few here and there.
okay so are you ready for this?
yep. sick.
I have been buying charm packs for 7 years (they are not all Moda).
I know this because I have 2 of the original Moda Tin Box Sampler Series
from 2005 and 2006.
I didn't get the Nantucket line by Minick and Simpson
but I have
Anticipation and Faded Memories.

I just can't bare to cut them.
I have used a TON of fabric and charms over the years,
yet they keep multiplying.
Here's another truth,
I rarely paid full price for charm packs.
It's true, I have to REALLY want it that minute to not wait for a sale.
So how could I have afforded so many charm packs in 7 years?
I would buy 6-8 charm packs from Hancocks of Paducah when they would
sale them at $3 or 4 each!
We don't see these those prices anymore.
I made an investment so to speak that will keep paying for years :)
okay that's just justification.
But I did go through a time when I would buy enough to make a bed sized quilt...
one or two charm packs just wasn't enough.
I don't buy like that now.
back to the reason I am posting....
the winner of Simply Charming.....

Congratulations to Melissa!
I like charm packs and being able to use them without cutting them.

I had that Faded Memories tin, too! I actually did make the project on the tin cover from mine, and it is really sweet. I also have 2 Hollywood and Vine tins that I got from Hancock's of Paducah. Man, I loved those tins, almost as much as the charm squares!

I love the tins! I did cut into mine, but before I knew enough so I'm now not happy with the results but I do love them still!
