A giveaway winner, a lovely quilt and some shopping

It is Saturday here in rainy Canberra and it is time to draw my little giveaway. Thank you so much to the lovely people who commented. The winner this time is Tatkis all the way from Russia! Congratulations. Please email me your address and I will post the pattern to you on Tuesday.
Margot brought this lovely quilt to show us on Wednesday night. It is one of Cathy's mystery quilts from a few years ago. Margot has done a wonderful job choosing the colours and then doing it all in needleturn applique. She has also quilted it herself. Fantastic work, Margot.
Hobbysew is having a sale and I went to work on Tuesday determined that I didn't need ANYTHING! Oh well, it was all too tempting. The customers kept bringing lovely fabrics over to me to cut and I just had to have some too. I was also tempted by all these trims. I could just see lots of trimmed Santas!
Here is my pile of fabrics! I did get a fair bit to use as backings perhaps.
This one appealed to me and I have no idea what I am going to do with it. It would be a nice backing or lining for a bag or..... who knows! I just liked the pictures and the colours. One of the Tuesday stitching ladies bought this one to use when making her hexagons. She'll put a little picture in the centre of each hexagon.
