Scrap Happy Winnings!

I have been linking up to Scrap Basket Sunday at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure fairly regularly since September. One weekend Kim announced that she was giving away a box of her scraps if we linked up plus left a comment letting her know that we would like to win the scraps.

I hadn't checked Kim's blog for a few days one week, and when I got back to it, I discovered that she had picked my name to win her box of scraps. The most amazing part is that she announced it on my birthday! It was like learning that I was getting a bonus birthday gift. The box arrived today, and let me tell you, it was stuffed full of fabric. The box weighed close to 4 pounds--any guesses on how many yards that would be?

I spent an hour or so digging through the collection of "scraps", which included many pieces bigger than what I would consider scraps. There were several 1/4 yard pieces, some even larger than that, plus about 20 squares from a French General layer cake. Also many smaller strips and bits. Surprisingly enough, there was only one piece of fabric that I already owned. I will be digging through these again this weekend to figure out which ones I am most likely to use and what to do with the rest.

This prize is definitely something to be excited about. I am linking up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict to share the fun.
