Today, I AM EXCITED! I'm going to warn you that this post is going to have a bunch of pictures :) Earlier in the month the wonderful Stephanie had a giveaway on her fantastic blog, Spontaneous Threads. If you haven't been there go check it out! I ended up winning the giveaway. First of all, I have to say I had no idea how big a "large" flat rate box is! Here are all the wonderful goodies that she managed to pack in the box.

Some fun flannels, I really like the purple with the elephants! And a funky cotton on the bottom of the bigger pile.

Next up are some smaller cuts! I totally love the little hedgehogs in the back on the left. All of these are great fabrics!
Now we have the notion type stuff. There are some ribbons, some clear thread (which I don't have), floss,  rick rack, a tassel, a little bag of fabric flowers, a heart shaped paper punch, some wavy trim (don't know what it's really called), a little note pad with fabric at the top, an eye mask (made by Stephanie), a heart shaped keyfob, and a fabric bracelet. Did you catch all that?
There's still more!
Two bigger cuts of fabric and some felt hearts! I kind of love things cut out of felt. I'm totally going to use these for Valentine's day!
Here we have some papery stuff. Three different kinds of envelopes, which I will totally use because I generally make all of my own cards, a little memory book, some tiny cards with envelopes, 2 packs of pre-cut shapes, and an iron on daisy!
Yes, there IS more! This is a huge cut of some fun frog flannel. I think its about 2 yards. I have plans for this little gem!
Last but not least we have three skeins of yarn. I'm pretty sure the are all wool, only one has a label, I don't know if they are all the same or not but they all look similar.
I serioulsy didn't think there would be so much stuff in the box. I was completely surprised when I openend it up and then started taking things out. I think she is going to have another giveaway in Feb. so I would advise you to keep an eye out for it and then enter it when she puts it up.
The next goodie I received was my book that I won over on Sew Mama Sew.  I won this book in November so I had to wait a long time for it, and then they had some issues with publishers sending out the books, so I just continued to wait.

A sewing book. I don't have a ton of books about things, and I have none about sewing so now I have one! This was a great week! I didn't make anything, unless you count the sheets and outlines I made for work.. But it was a great week anyways! I hope you all had a great week too and have a great weekend! Hopefully I'll have something crafty to post next week!
