Thursday Already?

Somehow this week went by in a flash and I am feeling bad that I haven't been able to accomplish a few things that I had hoped to have done.
I did clue four of the Thimblecreek Mystery right away--20 snowballs.
These came in the mail yesterday which reminded me that I haven't shared how lucky I've been recently!
I won this bundle of stencils on Lori's blog Humble Quilts.
They are courtesy of The Stencil Company--I can't wait to use the fan stencil!
You know I love Marcus Aged Muslin and Aged Canvas!
Now the muslin comes in colors and they are beautiful.
I won a sample book from the Marcus blog, Marcus Mentions--it's huge!

The fabric samples are double folded (9.5"x 14"), so they are very usable for piecing.
 For now I will leave them in the book until I decide what colors I am going to have to own. Of course, I want some of all of the colors, but those greens in particular are calling my name!

I won this adorable little package from Anne of Bunny Hill Designs.
It wasn't a drawing--she just randomly chose names from blog comments one day as a surprise and I was one of the lucky ones!

The little box includes some spools of Aurifil, a mini charm of Anne's newest Christmas line of fabrics; Mistletoe Lane, and a pattern--sweet! 

One of the Aurifil threads included is a 12 weight cotton-it comes on a red spool. You can see how it compares to my 50 weight Aurifil above--much heavier. I've been using it to embroider on some of my wool pieces and love it! It's very nice to use--so soft and no threads to separate!

Hopefully, today I will stop procrastinating and get my Austen Family Album loaded onto the quilting machine.
 But it is going to be awfully nice outside......we'll see....
