Christmas Came Early!

I've been keeping pretty quiet about it - didn't really believe it was true, but the parcel arrived today!

Do you remember the Cross Country Christmas Blog Hop back in November?  Organized by Gudrun, and with 12 fabulous designers participating? All kinds of really neat projects and stories were told over the course of the hop. Well, I was the third place winner!  Yup!  Me!  and this whole pile of fabulous goodies arrived in the mail today.  Thank you so much to all of you.  Christmas has really come early this year!

Here's "The Pile"

I've got fabric from Pat Sloan and Linda Lum Debono, a Clearly Perfect Angles tool from New Leaf Stitchs (Kari Carr), a new 6" sq Olfa ruler and a package of Heat n' Bond light.

7 - count 'em 7! patterns and 1 kit & pattern from the following designers:  Pat Sloan, Terry Atkinson, Sandy Gervais (signed copy!), New Leaf Stitches (Carri & Kari), and This & That (Sherri Falls)

and a Quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine AND  Gudrun's "fast & furious quilting as you go" book.  I see a few things in there that I'm already itching to have a go at!

Am I spoiled?  Yup!   Was I excited?  Yup!  Was Chico impressed?  Naw - bearly lifted his head to see what the excitement was about.

That's okay, I can handle my excitement just fine!  Oh the fun I'm going to have!  Oh wait, I will have fun AFTER I finish making Christmas presents!

Merry Christmas everyone!
