And the big winner is...

... Okay before I announce the winner I have to get all my feelings down about my experience with this huge giveaway week that I am forever going to participate in.  For all my wonderful followers i am usually not this wordy in my post since I am more of a visual person myself somplease bear with me in this one.  What a great community to be in, the sewing/quilting/crafting blogging world. I have never felt so part of something but yet without ever meeting anyone in person I am able to learn a brand new craft, get inspiration, and feel great about what I'm doing all from the blog world.  When I started this week I was reading the instructions for the giveaway and it said to make sure you pet a really good picture so that you will draw a lot of people in, in my head I was thinking its a giveaway what else do you need to draw people in? I was going to for sure enter everyone and there was nothing that was going  to stop me!! That was until an hour later and only twenty entries in I started looking at only pictures before I clicked on the post.  I am completely awwed by the number of giveaways and now I know why pictures are important and why the giveaway is opened for a week long.  I would say the giveaway that impressed me the most was the 24yard of fabric giveaway that asked you to match the fabric pull with its blogger.  I tried but couldn't figure it out so I didn't enter, let's just say the person that won that one really deserved it.

Another thing before the I tell you who the winner is is I forgot to answer my own question and I realized after reading everyone's comments that it wasn't quite fair to ask for just one favorite movie/TV show since I myself probably couldn't pick one.  My favorite movies would have to be The Notebook, Forest Gump, Iron Man, The Avengers, and there's so much more but for TV shows the list is even longer including Scandal, Nashville, Once Upon A Time, Bates Motel, Psych, Burn Notice, Suits, Dr Who, and Downton Abbey (I didn't like the ending to the last season either, my heart is kind of broken).  I also realize what a great question it really was because as a quilter I spend numerous hours in front of the TV while I'm cutting and pressing and basting.  Thanks for all the responds, I have some new choices to look into for entertainment and some wonderful new followers.  Like I said before I am not ususually this chatty but if you've made it through all this (or if you just scrolled down) the WINNER to my first ever giveaway goes to....
