More Celebrations Booty!

Last week, Donna from Celebrations called me to say that I had won one of the raffle baskets!  This is very exciting, as I hardly ever win anything.  LOL  I asked which one, but since everything was packaged, she wasn't sure.  So it was a happy surprise when this arrived on my doorstep Friday:
- a box of Sullivan's cotton floss
- 3 patterns by Myrtle Grace Motifs (A Pitcher of Spring, ABCs of USA, and Ham in a Can)
- 2 skeins of Dinky Dyes silk - Shiraz
- Jeannette Douglas' "Autumn by the Sea," completely kitted up with floss, beads, charm, and fabric

All so pretty!  I haven't used Sullivan's before, but I'm sure I'll find a use for it down the road.  And I'm thinking I'll use the Dinky Dyes for my M Designs "Celtic Heart."

I also got a call from my LNS, and when I stopped by there on Friday, they had this for me:
I had requested this back when it came out, and it took so long for anyone to contact me that I assumed they'd forgotten.  Oops.  However, they have a "Frequent shopper" punch card, and wouldn't you know it, I had enough punches to get this for less than $2!  (Very happy about that, since Celebrations ate up most of my stash budget for a while.  LOL)

I'll be back later with my WIPocalypse update -- "Melville's Return" doesn't look too much different than it did when I got back from Celebrations, but there is a bit more progress to document!

Nice stash! I love the Jeanette Douglas pattern. Does it have specialty stitches? Also Medieval Enchantment is a great pattern. Any plans to start that one soon?
