Happy Mail Day

Yesterday was a happy mail day - want to see what the postman brought me?
I won a giveaway on the Stitched in Color blog, sponsored by JAQS fabrics! I love these four colors together, I think I'm going to leave them nicely bundled until I decide what to make with them :)
These were in the package, too:
a JAQS scrap bundle! these were all nicely tied with twill tape, too, but I tore that off faster than my kids can tear wrapping paper off a cordboard box on Christmas morning :)  I wasn't waiting for pictures to dig in!

These aren't tiny scraps, either.  See that black, white, & pink floral up there? it is a fat quarter!
these are my favs:
The Princess & frog print is so cute! I think it is a linen/linen blend - I've never sewn with linen so I'm not really sure.  The piece is about 9" x WOF!  I think I'm going to make a zippered pouch with it :)  And those little muchrooms?  My favorite print & colorway from the Walk in the Woods collection!

Thank-you Rachel & Q! I love each fabric! :)
& my postman has excellent timing - there is nothing like fabric mail to take the sting out of car repairs {yuck}

I love scrap bundles! Yours all looks so awesome!! It's always surprising to see the size of some of the 'scraps'! =D
