Mail Call Monday - SCRAPS for the Win

Welcome to another edition of Mail Call Monday!!  From time to time bloggers offer drawings for various items.  Sometimes it's a pack of FQs from a generous supporter.  Other times, it's scraps from their very own fabric stash.

Such was the case when Mari @ Academic Quilter recently had a drawing for a small bundle of scraps.  See THIS post.

Guess who won?!?!

I did.  I did!!

::Insert happy dance here.::

Mailing had to wait until after the arrival and departure of a(nother) snow storm.  No worries... I've got PLENTY to keep me busy!!

Late last week, my prize package arrived:

It came complete with a note:

Just look at the decoration on the card:

Mari thanked ME for taking these scraps off her hands:

Seriously?!?!  No!!  Thank YOU, Mari, for the scrap infusion:

One of the little baggies included 1.5" squares:

Another included a batch of 2" squares:

I can't spot it in the photos above, but Mari also enclosed a bit of the backing fabric from her Christmas in February quilt that was just recently completed.  Scroll down to the bottom of her post to get a look at the adorable String of Lights (my name for it) fabric.  
What FUN!!  I always enjoy adding to my Holiday collection.

Thank you, again, Mari!!  As you may know... I absolutely LOVE scraps.  Other people's scraps are even better!  Pardon me, I'm off to sort some more scraps.  BONUS:  There may be bits that I can use for my blocks for the 2018 Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Until next time...
Celebrate the Luck of the Draw!!!
