Amazing prize

Have you been following Sinta's and Sheri's "LePetite" posts? Did you see the one noting the winners for Paganini? I couldn't believe my own eyes when I saw my own name at the top of the list saying Carrie (yes, the Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co!) had a surprise from fall market for me! This morning I went to the post office and picked up a big box - I'm so excited about this and can't wait to begin playing.

On the top were these scrumptious charm packs:



Sunkissed by Sweetwater has lots of soft and flowing prints in subtle and summery colours. Central Park by Kate Spain is also very sunny and cheery - lots of botanicals and zoo inspired prints. Both of these will be available in January. A Morris Tapestry by Barbara Brackman - a reproduction line using the patterns of William Morris and John Henry Dearle was fresh in the US shops in November. Le Petit Poulet by American Jane is very bright rich country type colours and there's the cutest honeycomb print with bees. I can't find the swatch pictures on Moda's website so I'm not sure when this is out.

And digging deeper in the box I found these rolled up layer cakes - yummy!!



Dilly Dally by Me and My Sister is so bright and cheerfull - another line that will be fabulous for summer. It will be out in January. I have a bit of a soft spot for Fig Tree fabrics - somethings so comfy with Joanna & Co's muted use of colours. Buttercup is another line that falls into that category. Oasis by 3 Sisters is soft and romantic in colours. These will be found in shops in February.

Oh, I want to play! This is really childish, but there's something special about being able to play with a toy that not everyone else is able to play with yet *lol*

Thank you so much for the amazing prize, Carrie! I'm so thrilled!

I am very happy that you received the box with the fabric treats! I'm even happier that you like everything and are looking forward to playing with your new "toys".

I agree ~ playing with a new toy is fun. Playing with a new toy before everybody else has it... it is the icing on the cake, the cherry on the sundae. Enjoy!
