I Love Mail!

On the 16th I won a 100th Post Give Away on Chris's blog "Greetings From the Shady Grove". Friday, my box arrived! I knew what it was but simply didn't have time to open it. I'd just gotten back from my knit group and had to cut muslin in preparation for a Free Motion Quilting Class in Orlando that I took on Saturday. So I opened the package a few minutes ago....
Chris hand dye's fabrics. When I saw this stack of greens and blues on her Etsy site, I loved them! I was expecting the fabrics to be the prize, aren't they fantastic?!
What I wasn't expecting and was truly surprised to see was this gorgeous stained glass snowflake which Chris also made! I live in Florida....this is as close as I'm going to get to snow here. It is STUNNING! Even J, the typical aloof teenager, said it was "cool"! I can't wait to put this baby on my Christmas tree! She is an amazing artist!
Chris is from Wisconsin and sent a really cute postcard of cows too! Chris, thank you so much! I love, love, love it all!
