A Schnibbles Win and a Purchase!

Carrie from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company sent me this fabulous prize just for participating in the Schnibbles monthly contest! Of all the months to win, I have to say this is like the grand prize! Thank you Carrie!
I got the coolest little zip up pouch to put stuff in and two different charm packs of fabric. I love Cherish Nature and used up what I had for last month's Schnibble Betsy..it matches my bedroom and so may wind up as a tablerunner for in there. This is my first peek at the other Avingon pack and it is a pretty set too. Come to think of it, I don't often see fabric I don't like :) But best of all is that I got the Schnibbles Times Two book and...

Carrie autographed it for me! How exciting is that? There are so many great quilts in here I can barely decide which one, or two, or three to do. I know that I will be doing some of them anyway and other than fabric my favorite thing in the world is books! Thanks again Carrie!
Today we went and visited Megan's apartment she just moved into. After that we went to lunch at Cheeburger Cheeburger...they have the best coconut cream pie malts! From there my good foot choices all went to heck, seriously...we stopped at Ikea (I had never been there) and found Diam candy pieces like they sell in Norway...9 of them equals 230 calories or something like that. In the course of the day I believe I ate more than 9...however I did manange to continue my exercise streak and rode my bike. Tomorrow is a new day.


Last but not least, we wound up at Quilter's Ranch and I couldn't resist buying some fabric for an apron I want to make. I ordered the pattern last night online (Indygo Junction) and the store happened to have it, but for 6 dollars more, so even with shipping I got a better deal. It came in handy for checking how much fabric I needed for the apron anyway. If it goes well, I want to make up several aprons for Christmas items..how good is that it is May and I am thinking about my Christmas list! In other good news, I am off from my regular college interpreting job and just working Sorenson Video Relay and occassional freelance for the summer. Now I can use up some of that fabric I have stashed away.
P.S. I forgot to say that the best part of winning is that Carrie posted my Schnibbles pic on her blog http://lavieenrosie.typepad.com/lavieenrosie/2010/05/miw.html if you want to see the whole post!
