An Amazing Package

We're back from Maine...what a beautiful, beautiful state. The leaves were gorgeous, the weather was mostly beautiful and the food was out of this world. I'll be back with a few pictures...

When we got back I had the most wonderful package waiting for me...my prize package from The Year of Schnibbles Parade...I still can't believe I won Carrie's prize...I am still absolutely doing the dance. This box was filled with the best goodies...Layer Cakes of Punctuation (and you know I love that), and brand new layer cakes of Wild Rose by Blackbird Designs and Le Encole by French General...charm packs from one of my favorite design teams, Brannock and Patek...these are older lines and I don't even remember there being charm packs for these groups...Gatherings, Four Seasons, and Rites of Spring...I couldn't be more thrilled with those...and look at the wonderful wooden box that Carrie put those charm packs in. I've had that box in lots of different places in my sewing room, I think I've finally settled on where it's going to live, well for a little while anyway...LOL! There's an autographed copy of Schnibbles Two, a rotary cutter,all of Carrie's individual Schnibble patterns tied with a cute ribbon, a Schnibble project bag, my favorite Prescencia thread that Carrie has me hooked on, and a 6 1/2" square and a 6" X 12" OLFA frosted rulers...now I'm going to tell you that I'm not a gadget girl and I don't buy new rulers just because they're the NEW thing so I've never had these...I've used them this week a bit and I LOVE them...they don't slip but my favorite thing is that there is no glare on the ruler. The lines are nice and thin and it's very easy to read...I'm hooked! This was the most amazing prize! Carrie is not only an amazing designer, she's an amazingly generous person...Thank you Carrie! Thank you again to Sherri and Sinta for a fun, fun year!
