Giveaway win

Hello ladies, just a quick post as I've got to go and pack!  I found out on Friday that my boss wanted me to go to Tunisia... today.  Then all that stuff kicked off with the video and the riots and all that and the Tunisians only went and stormed the embassy in Tunis!  I've been told to check the Government Advice website before I go to bed and I can only go if they say I can.  Currently they're saying I can, so please behave tonight Tunisians, I really fancy some lovely North African sun!
 
I won't be absent from the blog, I've got a few things lined up to talk about so you'll have to put up with my inane waffling from another part of the world!
 
Anyway, I came on the computer to tell you about a giveaway I won!  The lovely Debra from Needle d took part in the Back to School Blog Hop and I was lucky enough to win!  Want to see?
 
 
 
Two sewing books that I don't already have in my massive stash

 
And 7 half yard cuts of Sugar and Spice by The Painted Fish for Riley Blake.  Seven!  I was blown away by this, I LOVE this line of fabric and now it's mine!

I did, of course, email Debra to say thank you, I think you all know how I feel about that, but I wanted to say it again here.  Thanks Debra, you're so generous!

Edited to add: I've just remembered my last journey to Tunisia, please all keep your fingers crossed that this journey goes a little better.  The air steward will thank you.

Oooh, congratulations--you're going to drool over Scandinavian Stitches, provided, of course, you can drag yourself away from the fabric. Yeah, good luck with that.

Nancy has Scandinavian Stitches - you'll love it! I'm sure the other book is great too, and the fabric is luscious!

Stay safe in Tunisia!

I do have Scandinavian Stitches--it is lovely. It taunts me with its massive use of Tilda fabrics, but I know you will be making the little mice, and there are a couple of other projects that would look good in that fabric. Congrats! Travel safe, and don't spill things on people. Though I have to say, your last travelogue had me laughing until I cried. Bon voyage, my friend!
