Happy Mail - A prize from the Fat Quarter Shop

 I was super excited to start out the week finding that I had won the monthly draw for the Sewcialites Quilt Along!  I'm not one who wins a lot of prizes, so it's always so much fun when I do.  I knew it was coming today, but I was super surprised when I checked the Informed Delivery App today to see it was delivered at 8:00 am this morning!  I opened the front door and there was a pretty green box on my front porch -

Of course, I couldn't wait to go open it up to see what was inside - I had no clue what I would get!

What fun - like spring in a box!  Pretty yellow Aurifil thread, rulers from Creative Grids, a book and underneath it all a really gorgeous layer cake.

A Sicily yellow color builder set from Aurifil!  You know I will use these - this is one of the collections I haven't purchased, so will be a great addition to my stash.

What a pretty layer cake from Moda!

I can't wait to pull this apart and look at all the fabric - the colors from the side are really pretty!

A set of small rulers from Creative Grids - these will come in handy!  That little 2 1/2 inch one is sooo cute!  I really like these rulers, they have a grippy part on the back that keeps your ruler from sliding when you are cutting, which is really important with these tiny blocks.

And last, but not least this lovely book.   I have to confess that I already opened it up and read through the beginning - and I am excited to try out some of the projects.  I do love doing embroidery, though I consider myself pretty much a beginner.  Meg Hawkey's designs are so sweet and some of these projects will make lovely little gifts!  I like to try to do some handwork in the evenings instead of being on my computer because it helps me sleep better - so these projects will be great for that! 

Thank you to Kimberly and the crew at the Fat Quarter shop, not only for the great prize, but for the fun Quilt Along, I am really enjoying it!  

I hope you all have a happy sewing day - I know I will!
