Ross Goodies and a giveaway

I just want to show you the lovely things I got at the Tassie Quilting Bloggers and Friends Gathering, yes I've got my camera back, about time too!
This is the fat quarter I received for the secret santa, a beautiful piece of At Water's Edge by Blackbird Designs, it's so pretty, Thank-you to the blogger or friend who put this in the basket!

I bought this cute snowman from the local nursery and gift shop, I think he can sit on my shelf all year round, he's too cute to put in a box!
Sarah from Sarah's Prim Treasures and I did a swap and this is what she made for me my very own desk tidy, I love it and it has been christened already, Thank-you Sarah!

Here's a close up of the top....
Isabella from I Just Love to Stitch made a few of us these thread/pencil holders, I think she's converted me to the special gadgets for DMC threads, just have to start using them. Thank-you Isabella for being so generous and also for loaning me a camera!
Here's the lucky door prize I received, one of Hugs 'n Kisses beautiful notepads, some lovely fabrics for the Quilted Crow and a cute little wire hanger! I knew what was in all these little parcels and I'd have been happy with any of them!!

And my lovely Mum gave me this cute little tin that she picked up from the same nursery and gift shop that my snowman came from, isn't it pretty. I've put some of my favourite buttons in it!
I think I did well for the day, rather pleased with my lot but the day was really special as I got to share it with my blogging buddies and friends!
Visit Daisy Quilts for a beautiful giveaway celebrating 1 year of blogging, drawn New Years Eve!
