OASS - Winter

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm ready for Winter!  I just got the most amazing package from Grandma Rockton for my Once a Season Swap - Winter.  As you may recall, we're going by the current seasons 'down under'.  I thought I might have to go buy a wide angle lens to get it all in one shot!
She sent one of everything!
A snowman mug, some dark chocolate hot chocolate, note card, a book...
a journal, a notepad, a wee little sock monkey, some Christmas fat quarters, tea towels, and did I mention a quilt?

DH went back to work today.  What do you think he'll say if he comes home and the a/c is set on 60, and I'm snuggling under my new cozy quilt?
Thank you Sandra!  It's all totally wonderful.  Even the 'bonus' fabric!  Everything was tucked safely into a nice box, and there was a bow around all of it - made of extra binding - just the right size to cut up for hexies.  heehee.   I'll be smiling all day as I think of all this loot.  What a wonderful surprise.

Counting my blessings.....and my loot....Sunny
