I Won! I Won!

As you can see from my sidebar, I participate in the Ravelry group called Finish or Frog It. This group gets us to focus on our WIPs and assess them and post on Fridays our accomplishments. Jennifer started this great group which provides a lot of inspiration for many.

One of the threads was an Epic FO for 2010. I submitted my Inca Marl Coat which took me forever to finish. The ruffle around the edge was epic for me and even required that I go on Ravelry to find more yarn (which I did - here's the story).

Anyway, just this week I found out that MY epic FO won the contest! My prizes were a generous gift certificate to the LYS (thank you Jennifer) and a bag of goodies from Jan. Well, Jan's package arrived yesterday and I had such fun opening it up and finding goodies inside. She even packed some goodies in the skeins of yarn.

The package contained 6 skeins of Patons Classic Wool in a lovely purple (I'm already looking for something to make with it), a great project bag with a wristlet, gorgeous glass buttons, and some samples of Eucalan wash.

Here's the project bag - it has a snap top and the fabric is a lovely pattern with rabbits and dogs kind of like old tapestry patterns.

This is the card that came with it - had me giggling and when I showed it to my DH he just nodded in total agreement. I love how the yarn on the card matches the yarn that she sent. Thank you, Jan! What a wonderful prize!
