Holiday Elegance - A Surprise Win

My friend Bea was a little sneaky recently and purposely didn't tell me that I had one her recent giveaway sponsored by Connecting Thread. She waited until I got caught up on blog reading and saw the announcement myself on her blog. That sound like something I would have done. Nicely played Bea.

It has been a while since I have won a giveaway so this one was a great surprise and brightened my day. The package with my prize arrived last night and here is what was inside.
I am now the lucky owner of 2-16 piece strip sets of Holiday Elegance. 

Look at all of these lovelies. Beautiful prints in beautiful colors. What is to become of these you ask? I did some Google-ing last night, saw something that sparked my interest and I'm formulating a plan. You'll have to wait a bit to see what they become though. Perhaps the project idea will be for my home or it will be a gift, I haven't decided yet.

Thank you so much Bea! And thank you Connecting Threads. I love so much of what they have, especially their thread, and always wish that I didn't have a budget to try to stick to so that I could buy lots and lots more.
