Surprises!!

I have a special post tonight, all about surprises.

Today I received my first Sew Sampler box from Fat Quarter Shop.  It’s a box I will receive monthly filled with quilting goodies.  You don’t know what you will get until you open up the box.

SURPRISE!!

As I ran up the stairs with the box I thought the blue reminded me of a box from Tiffany’s.  But what is inside here was going to be better than anything from Tiffany’s.

It was very hard to not rip into the box right away, but I really wanted to photograph everything first.

Let’s open it up!

Hehe!  Still more unwrapping to do.

Here it all is.

I feel like I must be on the same wavelength as Kimberly Jolly.  The Strawberry Picking pattern just caught my eye the other day, and last week I was just saying I needed embroidery scissors with a case to travel with me.   That ruler looks fantastic for all the little pieces I’ve been working on lately.  I love the grips on the bottom.

The Grow! Charm Pack from Moda has all the colors of the rainbow.  My mind started racing a mile a minute with all the things I could do with it.  It was hard to put it back down and not start on a new project right away.

Also in the box were Screw B Do, which are magnetic screwdrivers (they’re in the little fabric sack) for sewing machines, a sticker, magnet, and the first block pattern in a series.  One new one comes with each box.

In the end, I’m quite pleased.  The hard part will be waiting for next month’s box!
