I have been spoiled!!

When I just got home I had a package from Colleen in my mailbox. She always has a contest every year about how many finishes she will have that year. I guessed right for 2005 and so I won some stash. And here is the pic of what I have received. It is some DMC and two skiens of Northern Lights silk in beautifull colors.
one pack of beads and one Mill Hill glass treasure.
"Daisy Lane Cottage" from Little house needleworks, didn't have any or their charts yet, but I like the look of theirs and wanted to buy one.
"20 flowers"from Just Nan an exclusive design for the silver needle, which I have looked at already for some times, but didn;t have the money to buy it. So yeah I am one happy girl now. Also got a envelope for my birthday from a birthdayclub I am in, but can't open it till my birthday the 25 of this month.
Sunday I cut the triangles and squares from part
1 I still had to cut from my favorite fabric. So a pic of part 1 and what we had to do for that one. you can see. Also a pic of part 2 which was finished yesterday evening. The 22 blocks came out of my nose at the end, but I am happy I got them finished. Now I can start with part 3. LOL part 4 is hard again as we have to cut 144 triangles. But I can remember that part 3 is only to make 16 blocks or something like that, will have to take a look later this week.
Also I worked on MTM yesterday, but didn't do a big lot of stitching. Here is a pic of the second corner.
