And I Win, Too!

Picture if you will, my excitement when I learned that I had won a prize in Daffycat's blogoversary giveaway. Then double that when I learned that my prize was some of her hand-dyed fabric! This cheery package arrived on Saturday:
And inside...
Omigosh, not one, but TWO fat quarters of lovely fabric (they're folded in half here). There was also a cute card in there that got flung aside during my victory leap, so it didn't make it into the picture. I had to use a light flash to try and capture the lovely lavender color of the Belfast, but I didn't quite get it. It's sooooo pretty. And it turns out the super-cool tea-stained linen is's featured in this post that explains how it's made.

The day before, some yarn arrived that I won from Knit Picks. It's their new Stroll Glimmer yarn. I've tried Dream in Color's Starry, so I can't wait to see how this compares.

Speaking of stash, I promise pictures from my trip to the Attic in Arizona are coming! I had to wait until today to try and get some decent light!

Lucky month! Now to figure out how to fit this nifty new stash into my Theme-a-licious 2012 plans...March Madness, if nothing else! =)
