As Luck Would Have It ...

As luck would have it, all the online groups have been discussing the new Family Circle (crochet) magazine -- and how difficult it is to obtain.

As luck would have it, even one of our local crochet club members had difficulty getting it.

And as luck would have it, I'm sitting here wishing I had a copy myself.

Fortunately, I have luck, or rather, luck was looking out for me!  It all started with attendng a meeting this week: I offered an idea, it struck a cord, it's being implimented.  I was asked for my blog address so I provided it.  From there I received an email asking for help, which I'm always happy to do, and in return this woman is "thanking me for my kindness" with a copy of the FC mag hot off the press.  She already wrote me to tell me it's in the mail!  I can't wait!  I didn't expect to be rewarded, but this is way cool!

I decided to spread my luck around a bit.  Over there at the Bernat website they're looking to give Disco yarn away -- so I opted to have some sent to some crocheters I know who do not have Internet access. (I wasn't greedy; I picked two people)   Groovy right?  Gotta love that they're going to be surprised with a free skein of yarn!  And as luck would have it, I'm going to share the link with you too: http://www.bernat.com/getdown/

Finally, as luck would have it, I received an email from Lion Brand gently letting me know that my request for tickets to the Martha Stewart show was declined.  So, as luck would have it, that means the yarn I purchased to make the "coming home" poncho can now be used to crochet Chemo Caps. 

I love my luck!   :)


ADDITION: I was preparing items for tomorrow's big event (The CraftAdventure) and came across the goodie that was given to me by my gal, Grace.  Talk about luck ... this woman has the most AMAZING luck when it comes to finding OOP books and books on sale for a song!  She got me the one pictured to the right.  Now am I lucky or what??!!!

ROTFLMAO about Martha Stewart and the yarn being used for something else!  I personally don't like her.  Too many stories about how bad she treats the help.  One errant story and I might let it go but when there is more than one, you tend to think there is a trend there.  Plus, IMHO, she's a glorified crook.  Think of the money you'll save on travel expenses when you watch the episode on t.v.! :o)

Heehee....I sent Disco yarn to some family members who I know will pass it along to another certain family member who likes to crochet (ahem!).  I just hope that my husband let's my brother-in-law know why he is receiving yarn in the mail.  LOL!
