Winners all around!

Tonight I got James to pick a winner for my blogiversary giveaway!
But I think I'm the winner today. Amidst the expected parcels I ordered from the US to celebrate said event (like I needed an excuse!) was an Australia Post satchel at my door tonight. I couldn't imagine what it was, but knew things were promising when I saw Island Kylie's name on the back. Even so, I wasn't prepared for the wonderful slection of almost 40 frog fabrics she'd managed to stuff in there!
Kylie has been making her son a frog quilt, and knew I had an affinity for the little creatures, too, so she sent the pieces she didn't use my way. I can't call them scraps - they're too big! The photo above shows a little bit of each. Despite my collection of frog fabrics, I only had a handful of these, and a few in different colourways. And I was amazed how many I hadn't even seen before!

And here are some of my other stash enhancements to arrive recently. Just a couple more books and some long-awaited fabric found through MissingFabrics.com to come:

Stash = 870m


Oh, and the winner - Mothership!
Completely unbiased, since James can't read that well yet, I promise! There were so many of you I wanted to give it to, but I don't have time to make that many. I hope you'll stay around with me as I enjoy my second year of blogging - maybe next year?


By the way, the quilt with the most pieces is Canadian Inspiration with approximately 3600! Beach has around 2200, the Blue and Yellow quilt aroubnd 1500, and Eva's Garden (the green and mauve one) has 930.

What a wonderful collection of material! I love frogs, but have never seen any of those prints before (I obviously live on the wrong side of the world, lol!)
