A Little Package of Happiness

I had a little box waiting at my door - my prize package from Quilters Newsletter from the 45 year challenge.  It's so much fun to get goodies in the mail :).
These 12 spools of Aurifil thread are so beautiful.   I can't wait until I have time to play with all these different colors in some very pretty projects.
There were 2 fun looking patterns from Pre-Furred Quilts. 
There were 3 rulers from Omnigrid.
This "On Point" ruler looks really interesting - I'll open it and try it soon.
These 2 books offer a lot of inspiration.  I have never tried dyeing my own fabric, but this book sure has a lot of information.
These blues and creams are so beautiful.  I'm not sure what I'm going to make yet, but they are scrumptious!

On a personal note, we had the estate sale yesterday at my brother-in-law's house.  It's quite overwhelming to empty an entire house and try and sell it.  My brain needs a little break, but I will be ready to start creating soon, I'm sure.
