A giveaway win arrives

Late last year I was lucky enough to win a giveaway kindly offered by Pat of Silver Thimble Talk.
After bit of technical difficulty we finally made contact and Pat was able to post the parcel. Thank you for persevering in trying to contact me, Pat.

This morning the postman delivered a large box.

The cute Raggedy Ann is who greeted me when I opened the lid..................

Also inside is the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks publication I have seen on a few blogs. Guess who has a block in there........................congratulations Pat!!!!!!
Lots and lots of inspiration in those pages!

Pat also included a Moda layer cake......The Caroler by Mary Engelbreit. I have never seen Mary Engelbreit fabric here before and there of lots of delicious choices there! Its gorgeous fabric!!

There are Triangles On A Roll. I have seen these before either, but they came at the perfect time. :) I am about to make a HST quilt....just a small one, but these triangles will make it lots easier!!! Thank you Pat.

Last, but not least, is this wonderful tote bag! Its big and roomy and has the most delicious paisley fabric on the inside. There are lots of pockets on the outside, and below you can see the front section unbuttoned.........there are loops for holding things and 2 clear plastic, zippered pockets. Perfect for putting small things so they won't get lost!

Thank you sooo much Pat. I have already used the bag today. :)

Very little sewing has been happening here lately. Too many other things keeping me busy.
I have plans in my mind for several more small projects and I hope get get a couple of things well on the way to being finished. Another week or 2 and I will be back sewing again....I hope!
