Giveaways, fabric and midgees oh my!

I packaged up the fabric I had in my two giveaways last evening so it will be off to the post office.
Here is what I won in a recent giveaway by Lark Books and on Laura Wasilosk's blog. It was a blog hop for an autograhed copy of the new Masters Art Quilt Vol. 2. It is a beautiful book although I have not had time to throughly look at it. Thank you so much Lark Books!
My brother was home for three days and he brought me a present. He was in Anchorage, Alaska on tour with K.D. Lang and ended up in a quilt shop called The Quilted Raven! Now he is the most unlikely person to go into a quilt shop! He must have been bored out of his mind. Well, he said he went in and asked for some of the most Alaskian fabric they had and this is what he brought me.

I love it! There are two fat quarters of each of the fabric with the bear and the fabric with the Native American bear claws, and one fat quarter of each color of the deer fabric. I showed the fabric to a lady I work with and she pointed to the deer piece and said "Bubba"! This fabric will make a real manly boy baby quilt!

Speaking of baby quilts I am know of 10 people that are having babies! Holy cow! I guess once I get the I Spy quilts and the family xmas quilt done I will be working on building my stash of baby quilts. I have about 6 ready to quilt so I will work on those first, but they are mostly boy looking quilts. I have been building up my girl fabric stash and since several people are having girls I will need to get some girl quilts done.

This time of year I finally get to buy one of my favorite treats - vanilla tootie rolls. They carry them at Giant Eagle only at Holloween. Yum!

I tried to win that book but failed! I have the first book and loved it.

You have a great brother! And he has a great sister to let him leave his car for so long.

OH OH OH! I see my package! LOL.

I love that fabric. I saw a Bow Tucks Purse made out of it and totally fell in love.
