I'm a winner and more stash!

Thank you so much to Lindsay from Caring Stitcher blog!  She picked my name to win her 10 year blogoversary surprise and I just received an amazing package of goodies in the mail today!  She wrapped everything in tiger striped tissue paper.
 Here is everything unwrapped:
 A nice Christmas tin to store stitchy goodies in, or fill it up with homemade candy and fudge!
A cute ornament chart with beads and buttons.
Lacy trim and 30 ct cream linen and an amazing beaded needle holder!
Lindsay sewed this purple Q-snap cover herself and also did all the beading on the needle holder!  Such amazing talent!
She also made this wonderful ornament with specialty stitches and cute pins and white velvet ribbon.  The fabric on the back had a design of different colored sewing pins.  Perfect!  Thank you so very much, Lindsay!  Happy 10th Blogoversary to you!

I also received this Jungle Baby chart from Bianca from the Random Acts of Stitching Kindness blog!  Thank you so much, Bianca!  I plan to stitch these cute animals separately and donate to World of Charity Stitching to be sewn onto a quilt or tote bag or pillow.  They accept any designs and not just for a quilt theme.

I also bought the Neighborhood Friends chart by Little House Needleworks.  100% of the sales from this dog chart and the Cats in the Garden chart by Shakespeare's Peddler will go to animal care organizations.  You can order them both HERE and nominate an animal shelter or rescue to receive some of the profits!  They surprised me with a skein of limited edition over-dyed floss!

What a beautiful set of goodies you received! I love the idea of stitching the jungle animals separately for WOCS! Diane Arthurs designs are fun to stitch, and these will be sweet for quilt blocks!
