The first envelope I opened had a snazzy little leopard print tissue paper wrapped surprise inside. It was my mini quilt win from Reene at Nellie's Niceties. As part of the recent Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day, Reene designed a fantastic paper pieced pattern made and made it up as her giveaway prize. I wasn't expecting to win when I saw that Catrin had been lucky enough to bag the gorgeous cushion/mini quilt panel Reene had stitched up. But then Reene surprised me with a prize for naming her new block pattern - Nellie's Knots. I am chuffed to pieces that she liked the name I suggested and even more chuffed to receive this mini quilt which arrived today along with some pretty scraps. Thank you for your generosity Reene!
It's hard to stop people being generous to me lately, in lots of areas of my life, and this second little parcel is another example. This time the lovely Di picked me up some tape for bag handle linings. It's like having a personal shopper on the loose! Thank you, Di!
The last parcel today is kind of courtesy of myself and the very generous 40% Super Sale hosted by Pink Castle Fabrics a little while ago. Sadly, not all of my choices were available but that's just proof of the popularity of the fabulous discount on offer. It's been a long time since I indulged in a fabric spree but the Super Sale was too good to pass up. Must confess this is not my only fabric purchase this week, but more on that and the dilemma I'm in tomorrow.
