Prized Sunday Stash

It's a very special addition to my stash that I want to share about today - my quilt "Firebird" won the first place in the appliqué category of the Bloggers' Quilt Festival and I got a Fat Quarter Shop certificate which I immediately put to good use. On Friday my parcel arrived (took just a week from the US to Ireland, which is very nice).

Two ten-inch squares packs - Stonehenge Gradations and Bali Crackers in green. Just look at that:

Does it make anybody go green with envy? ;)))

It's impossible to show all the beautiful batiks, they are all different (all 40 of them) and all just gorgeous! I usually am short on greens for my art projects, now I think this issue has been addressed.

There is another gorgeous prize that my fabric pumpkin won (randomly) from the Handmade Halloween link-up hosted by Bernie at Needle and Foot, and it was a pattern by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts. My girls chose the Forest Friends pattern and I couldn't but take a break from my current project to try it out. I made two blocks yesterday and they turned out very winterly with the snowy background and snowflakes on the deer's nose.

Aren't they super cute? I haven't yet decided what I'll do with them but they seem very suitable for winter/Christmas decor.

I'm linking up to Sunday Stash at Molli Sparkles
