Let's Celebrate!!

 You may or may not know that I have fibromylagia, and a few other fun chronic things, which seriously interfere with my life in general but are not life threatening in anyway. In the last few months I've developed some neurological symptoms, numbness, balance issue etc. Anyway this leads to a concern about MS.

I've finally got the results from the MRI and it's 95% certain I do not have MS. Which is good. Very good.

So I'm celebrating with all of you!

And since in reply to my last post many of us decided that our over flowing, ever expanding collection of fabric is in at least partly Moda's fault for putting out so many gorgeous lines I'm going to show them and give some of mine away!

Yes, that will teach them.

I'm giving away two of the Moda Candy Bars...these have 40 5x2.5" pieces. One is Fandango and the other Luna Notte.

Just leave a comment about which you'd like. To get a second entry leave me a comment about some good news you've received lately! I'll draw Aug 3rd, which is the day after the holiday here.

Hi! My first choice would be Fandango but the Luna Notte would be wonderful too. Thanks for celebrating in such a generous way!

Edna said...

My good news is that my two oldest grandkids are able to stay with me for a few weeks this summer!

Lisa said...

I like the Luna Notte. And I'm sooooo happy about your wonderful news!

Lisa said...

My good news is my youngest is moving back to town, even though he was only a couple of hours away it made me worry more :)

Denise :) said...

Ooooo!! What a fun giveaway! I'm tossing my name in the hat! :)

Denise :) said...

Ah, and for my second entry, my good news is: I got to come home from my unexpected trip to the hospital, no worse for the wear! AND, I just recently found out I'm gonna be a grandma again! There, TWO bits of good news in ONE! :)

Melissa Corry said...

Oh I would love the Fandango! It is just so fun!

Melissa Corry said...

And for my second, I have great news that I am expecting :)

Laura said...

Great news about the MS and thanks for the giveaway. I would love the Luna Notte.

SewLindaAnn said...

I'm curious about Luna Notte since I haven't seen it yet.

Laura said...

For my second entry, I'm not sure this counts as news, but it was definitely a joyous moment this morning when I found my missing diamond solitaire ring sandwiched between two pieces of fabric waiting to be washed. It's been missing since mid June. I knew Sassy had taken it, but couldn't find where she'd put it. Guess I should wash my fabric more timely!

SewLindaAnn said...

I'm so happy to hear about your positive test results, it must have been a difficult wait. One of my BF's has Fibro - it's a tough time. My good news is my son passed his junior year and is on to being a senior in high school. It was a huge accomplishment for him since he's had such a personally tough year.

deserae said...

I would love either one, but Fandango would be my first choice!

deserae said...

I am glad to hear you don't have MS! I have some autoimmune problems too, but recently the best news I have had is that my case of autoimmune hives is dramatically improving. My doctor thinks it will probably go into remission which is awesome! :)

Joe and Julianne said...

I would love either, but Fandango is my favorite. My good news is that we have been approved to adopt another baby! :)

Annette said...

I love the Fandango, very pretty!

Annette said...

My good news...I live in Canada, and my family in Holland (where I grew up). My sister there, was going to get married today, and I couldn't go because I just had another baby.
My Mom just called to tell me what the day was like. She did actually get married;) Pretty good news, I'd say!

Kristy Lou said...

Congrats. That is GREAT news! I really would love to have the Luna.

Kristy Lou said...

My good news is that a family member who suffered a heart attack, was back on his feet in 2 DAYS! Amazing what the medical field can do. Thanks. for this.

Vallee said...

I think the fandango looks very nice and I love the name!

Barb said...

Oh my....I would love a bar...and they are not fattening either.

Barb said...

Okay.... I have a son who is 30....and he has lost a ton of weight (went through a bad time for a while and gained alot of weight)...well...he has decided to go back to college. Now if that is not good news..the prayers spent on that man...He is so awesome.

Barb said...

I forgot to say, that you are doing good with that news. You are amazing to have such a positive attitude....

Kim said...

So glad to hear your good news. I would love to win the Fandango pack. Thanks for a chance to win.

Mama Pea said...

Hi, I just stumbled on your blog. I am so glad you have gotten good news. I love them both, but I guess I would take Fandango. Thank you for the nice giveaway!

Mama Pea said...

My good news is that it's my birthday on August 3, so I hope you pick me! Also, my husband is unemployed, and he found a potential job (which have been few and far between). Let's hope it comes through. It's only part-time, but you never know where those things will go!

Karen said...

I'm glad to hear about your good news and more excited about how you're celebrating it. I'd choose Fandango first if I was chosen. Thanks!

Karen said...

For my second entry, my good news is that my son gifted me his old truck after purchasing a new one for himself. Thanks once again.

Heather Crowe said...

Congrats on your awesome news! I love the Fandango.

Darlene said...

That's awesome news, Cara. I'd enjoy either one. Sweet giveaway.

Good news we received recently - my sweet hubby's heart by-passes are in wonderful shape. :-)

Nancy said...

Oh my, I would love to dance with Fandango!! It's so pretty and feminine looking...

We had a bit of good news today that we might have bought a house...eeeekkkk!!! We were having some back and forth with the seller and it seems she is coming our way...
Yippee...i think?

Lindsay said...

Congrats! That is wonderful news! I love the fandango pack. I am in love with that print but havent had a chance to get my hands on some.

Lindsay said...

Well some good news I have heard is that my good friend is coming home for a visit and we are going to go away for the weekend with all of our friends. I cant wait to see her and get to spend time with everyone. This will be a first since graduating and getting "real" jobs

Mandy said...

I'd love to have the fandango one :)

Mandy said...

Good news eh? Well... both of my sisters competed in the local regatta and although they came in last place in their heats... they both had an awesome time! I think that showcases the true spirit of sport.

Dianne M. said...

I especially love the festive colors in Fandango and would love winning it.

I would definitely like the Fandango. Well I like to hear 95% so good for you!!! I've heard how hard that issue is, so my heart is with you on the days where it gets bad <3 (that's a heart xoxox)

For my other chance at winning, good news I received lately is a cousin (in-law) is going to have another baby....her fourth and LAST!! It's a girl so the score is 3 girls and 1 boy!! I'm really excited for her!!!

Quilt Hollow said...

Cara I had no idea about your health issue and have two friends with same....wish I had the almighty magical wand for the cruddy days!
Fandango appeals to me...looks like a fun line to work with.
Share some good news you say....school starts next Wednesday.

I love the Fandango. Glad to hear it's 95% not MS.

Peaceful Piecer said...

I love the fandango

Peaceful Piecer said...

My good news is my third grandchild will be arriving in Feb.

hetty said...

Glad to hear your good news. I was diagnosed (wrongly) with MS too a couple of years ago. At that time I could not walk and eventually I could not even stand up by myself. The doctors were puzzled and it took way too long for a diagnosis. By the time they figured it out too much damage had been done. It's an autoimmune disorder where my nerve cells to my legs were being killed off. I was finally treated with steroids which seemed to do the trick. I have no preference over your give aways. I love them both.

hetty said...

Now for my good news. I still have mobility problems, but last weekend we went to the beach and I was able to walk along the sand to the water, enter the lake and swim around. Then I made my way back to our towels (and my cute picnic quilt which you can see on my blog). This is something I haven't been able to do for three years!

Sinta Renee said...

I am so glad thaat your results are positive! I'm sure that Fybromyalga is hard enough to cope with on a daily basis. I love your new candy bars! Fandango is cheerful-let's go with that! My good news? I count my blessings every day- Because every day is a blessing!

webmailaddress2 said...

I love the Fandango!

webmailaddress2 said...

My meeting today went well; yay! Congrats on your good news. Stay strong!

Dresden Quilter said...

Glad to hear your good news. I would choose Luna Notte. My good news is that my husband is finally on holidays!

Amy said...

Congrats on your good news. We've had good news at our house. My husband needed to change jobs because of his health and he found his dream job. And we are soon going to be grandparents. Wahoo!

Crafty Mama said...

That is good news indeed! ☺
I love both lines, how could I possibly choose? 3 sisters is always beautiful and classic and of course, who doesn't love Kate Spain anything? ☺

Patty said...

Great news.

Fandango for me.

Staci said...

What good news! And kind of you to share your goodies with everyone in blog-land. I'm loving Fandango right now!

Deanna said...

The Fandango looks more like me. And, I have wanted to try out these new pre-cuts.

Thanks for sharing your good news. That is my favorite sort. Mine is this, My Young Son was looking at some substantial and expensive dental work but over the course of 24 hours the problem magically (read miraculously) fixed itself. I am feeling very grateful today. (Yes, I know it was supposed to be a separate post, but this works for me.)

Staci said...

The good news around here is that my son is home from university, and is preparing for his senior year, and still has a 4.0 grade point average.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I think Fandango would be my choice if I were to win!

Thanks for sharing your good news!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

My good news is that my older daughter (19) is recovering just fine from her tonsillectomy yesterday, and my youngest (5) just lost her first tooth today! And I survived a week at cub scout camp with my son (7)! Whew!

Allie said...

Congratulations that you don't have MS - that must've been scary waiting for those results! I have fibro too, with lots of numbness and no balance left hardly at all - can't ride a bike anymore or stand on a chair. Do you take vitamin supplements?
Thanks for the give-away, I think people should be sending YOU stuff to celebrate, lol. I love the Fandango! Wouldn't that make a cute butterfly quilt?

quiltmom said...

Hi Cara,
My good news is that my son got a new job that pays him more so we are excited for him.
I love the Luna Notte- the fabrics are both lovely.
So glad your tests came back with such positive news.
Warmest regards,
Anna

shelly said...

I'm in love with the Fandango fabric so thats the one I would chose. Thanks for the chance to win!

shelly said...

Jennifer said...

Great news for you - I am more intrigued by the Fandango, but let's be honest - I'd love either one!

Jennifer said...

...And my good news is that my oldest starts kindergarten in just over a week, and she's excited about it!

Mimi said...

That is such great news for you and probably a big relief. I like this idea about celebrating too and if I won I would choose the Fandango, but Luna Notte is awesome too! Thanks for the chance!

Mimi said...

For my second entry to win this awesome giveaway, my good news is that I recently made contact with a chum from school and it has been over twenty years since we saw each other. This is thrilling news!

busymom said...

I would love Luna Notte. Thanks for the chance to win.

busymom said...

I am very happy for your good news. It must be such a relief! Good news for me, nothing big or grand. My oldest is off to college in less than a month, and we couldn't be prouder.

Judith said...

So pleased to hear your good news. If I am lucky enough to win either one would be fine for me.

Judith said...

For my second chance, my good news is that my sister and brother in law are coming to visit us in sunny crete in september. Last time I saw them was September last year when she celebrated her 70th birthday.

Pokey said...

I'm glad for your health news! I know several people with the Fibromylagia and mostly, it is a complicated but livable situation, with those terrible pain-filled days thrown in.
MS on the other hand is much different-! Thank you for sharing your news with a giveaway Cara, and if I picked a 'candy bar', it would be Fandango.

Pokey said...

My news is, my sweet MIL has breast cancer. The Dr. believes it is contained, therefore removable. We are still praying that this is the outcome!

call me crazy said...

That is great news Cara! I'm so happy for you! Love both of the candy bars but Luna Nona speaks to me. :-) My good news? I'm halfway finished with the painting~ hopefully I can sew again soon! LOL :-)

call me crazy said...

Oh gee, I meant Notte! :-o

ledamewood said...

Let me say that is wonderful news for you. Let's hope the Dr figures out your problem and it is an easy fix. I would love Fandango.

ledamewood said...

My good news, is my son and his wife are going to have a baby.

Sheila said...

I am not familiar with either line, but anything Moda is sure to
be lovely!!!

From the top fabric choices, I think Fandango catches my eye the most. :)

Thank you for your give-a-way kindness.

Sheila said...

For some good news.....
Heaven is real and available to all who put their faith in Jesus Christ....and I plan on going there and holding my sweet baby one day....I am not preaching on your web site....it is just when I hear "good news"....well...what could be better!!!

Kim said...

1st time to your site, liking it so far :) - the darker fabric speaks to me more. Congrats on your fabulous new!

Andee said...

I am going to go with Fandango! Maybe I will get lucky because it is my birthday week...thanks for the chance!

kimland said...

Cara, that is GOOD news, that has to have provided a great sense of relief. I am a fan of Fandango.

kimland said...

My good news is that my son is coming for a visit next weekend and bringing my grandson, I can hardly wait!

Wendy said...

I'm so glad the news was good, the best reason to celebrate. The bars are so much fun, I would have a hard time choosing.

Wendy said...

My good news is my daughter is going back to school. There was some question if that would happen with the breakup of her boyfriend. We sure worry about our kids.

Heavy On Charm said...

Congratulations on the good news! I too had an MS scare a few years back and can happily report that I too was cleared by an MRI. Have a fantastic holiday!! Both of the new fabrics are wonderful, but I think I like the Luna Notte the best :) Take care!!

Cheryl said...

What wonderful news for you. Thanks for the give-away. Love them both, but Luna Notteis my first choice.

Cheryl said...

Here's my good news: My daughter asked me if I would like to join her on her business trip to Akbar, India. Taj Mahal- here I come, in November. Luna Notte is my choice. Thanks.

My good news is that I didn't lose my workers comp check! It showed up in today's mail. Fibro fog strikes again. :(

Barb said...

Good news from my doctor, too! Had blood work done and all of my numbers are great except my TSH level. No wonder I've been so sluggish lately! Easy fix--increase thyroid meds. Glad you don't have MS :D
