Parcels, yayay!


Today I got several parcels in the mail from Australia and the UK. . . I would show you a photo of their wonderfulness before I open them but I couldn't blur the address very well.

Anways, what was in them?! I was lucky enough to win a couple of giveaways in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway days lately. I felt so lucky, I was just having fun looking at all the pretty blogs, I didn't really expect to win anything! 

 
I won these beautiful fat quarters from Chrissy at Stitched Together.


I love the underlying purple tones! I've had so many ideas for what I'll do with them, but haven't settled on anything yet. While I decide they'll make a worthy addition to my stash. Thank you so much Chrissy! 
  
I also won this STUNNING quilted cushion cover from Amelia at Stitch'n'Bits. I couldn't really get photos that did it justice, but I tried. 



Isn't it amazing? I know nothing about quilting really, but this pattern is apparently called a Dresden plate. At the moment I haven't got a cushion to fit in it, but I'll have to track one down soon. Thank you so much Amelia! 

 
Chrissy and Amelia's blogs are both wonderful, so you should check them out if you haven't already. And I highly recommended joining in with Sew Mama Sew's giveaway days . . . the next one should be in December.

I may be linking up to these link parties.

That's all for now,
