Today's Mail and A Winner!

What a day of wonderful mail that arrived on my doorstep today! It felt like Christmas! Where to start?? Mini Quilt Swap first.

This stunning mini quilt is made by the lovely Lisa. Its just so me! She has done a fantastic job, neat stiching, perfect colour choices, it is a beauty, I love it! Thank you so much Lisa! And she spoilt me with these extra's below!

Two magazines which I have already post it noted 2 "must make" quilts from. I love quilting mags from the States, they seem so fresh. Lisa also made two little bags for the girls and popped some stickers in them, I could only grab one bag for the photo as Milly has taken the other bag and all the stickers out the backyard as I blog this.... Dangerous maybe, I'll find stickers all over the dog most likely. Anything for 5 minutes peace though! Thank you again Lisa, it was lovely getting you for this mini quilt swap.

And also this massive box arrived from Tasmania. The only person I know in Tassie doesn't blog and isn't crafty so I was puzzled for a few seconds and then it clicked, Cass's swap box! Back in May Cass organized this swap, take 3 things out, put 3 things in send to the next person. What a cool idea hey? I am definately taking that little red softie out, she is too cute!

And the most important news I have left to last, the winner of the blogiversary giveaway! Lisa's cupcake bag came in handy already as I put all the slips in there. Milly drew out.... JMBMommy! Congrats JMBMommy! :) I'll email you shortly. Thank you for all that left a comment. Rather overwhelmed at all the comments. Next year I'll do a bigger quilt for the blogiversary, wonder what the next year will hold.
