Treasures from Across the Pond

I signed up for my first fabric scrap swap through Quilt Pixie and was paired up with Angel Cat. (please note that the exchange sign up is finished) The idea was to have the swap ready as a Christmas exchange but Angel Cat and I got so excited about the whole thing we decided to have Christmas early and mailed our packages off early, especially since they had to travel across the Atlantic Ocean. My packages from Angel Cat arrived yesterday and today. Yes packages because Angel Cat has to split them because of the limitations of the UK postal system and what they would allow. Fortunately here in Canada we are allowed up to 2 kg. (approx. 5 lb. and within a certain box size limit) and my package met those conditions.

So I've got all kinds of wonderful fabrics, some neat ribbons, buttons and beads. The brain is now thinking of ways to incorporate these into projects. Below are some pictures of some of the fabrics that were in my bundles.

Thanks Angel Cat for my wonderful treasures and thanks Quilt Pixie for setting up the swap.
