  2. I always loved Bambi. I never could understand hunting for deer. One look in those big eyes, and they would have me hooked. Great giveaway!

  5. I grew up in the country and had a doe that would bring her wee ones to the porch for goodies every season. =) I <3 hoos!

  6. So cute! I agree that the ric rac quilt would look really good in pink, but then again pink's one of my favorite color, so I think just about anything would look really good in it.

  7. For me, when I look into a deer's eyes it's like looking into an old soul. You can see straight to their heart when eye contact is made. They are just very sweet.
    Thanks for the giveaway, this set was put together so perfectly I would absolutely love to make a quilt with it!

  8. We don't see them much where we live, and we are living close to the sea. But once or twice a year there's one jumping through our garden in full speed!
    I must tell you about my son when he was little.
    I think he was at the age of two plus plus. He was watching the Bambi video, and when Bambi's mother died, he was so sorry for Bambi and started crying. He never wanted to see that video again, and he never has. He's now at the age of 22, so I think he'll be ready for it now! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Living in this house for two and a half years now we REALLY miss seeing deer out our windows. Oh we see an occasional one or maybe two but not the daily sightings of a LOT of them! I especially miss seeing the fawns this time of year. LOVE the fabric!

  12. I'm Australian and they only time I've seen deer is at a deer farm that we drive past on the way to our beachside holiday house. They also sell cuckoo clocks!

  13. I hardly ever see wild deer in my part of the UK but when I was a child there was an annual deer roast in our village!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have the granddaughter of the daughter, of the mother of the same deer line - who comes to my apple tree by my kitchen window to feed on all that delicious fruit - she keeps the drops cleaned up. And then the babies join in, my peaceful morning, first cup of coffee with mother and babes.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'd love to have some Hoo's in the forest fabric, it's so lovely!
    we have wild deer in the forests in co.Clare and it's so easy to spot one in the middle of the road. They're so beautiful, the last one we saw was a baby, a Bambi...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Growing up my friend and I stole her brother's car and hit a deer. No hiding that one!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My husband and I went down to The new Forest several years ago and heard some sustling in bushes, we were able to get within a metre of a beautiful doe curled up on the ground with a new babe, I still get a tear in my eye when that scene comes to mind - precious.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Deer me, what can I say about Deers. They are really cute, make great movie stars ( Bambi ) and the Reindeer variety have a very special job pulling Santa's sleigh.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh thank you! Okay, probably not what you want to hear about deer, but we live in the pine barrens of New Jersey and my Dad was an avid hunter so we used to eat deer all the time...I know I know, but that's my only association with deer!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great giveaway! Please count me in!
    The life expectancy of deer is 20 years.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just had an encounter with deer last weekend. In my side yard I had a mother deer and her fawn that somehow found themselves on opposite sides of a chain link fence. I watched and photographed them mostly through my open window -- the mother was about 15 feet away. I could hear the baby "crying" -- if deer do that. They finally got themselves reunited on the same side of the fence but I watched for about 30 minutes before they figured it out.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Such a peaceful animal but, with suicidal tendencies when darting in front of my car.

    ReplyDelete
  23. When I think about deers my first thought is( how predictable) always Bambi

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love, love, love deer! In Germany they are very modern together with "fly agaric" (I hope it is called like that) and little dwarfs.
    Thanks for that great giveaway. By the way: I love the skunks on the fabric!

  25. I love deer since my I saw Bambi many, many years ago. They are specially cute when they are babies with their white spots.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Deer are cute but even the does can be angry. I've been snorted, stomped at, and almost chased while taking my 100lb scaredy-dog out for a potty break.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh Deer! I love this fabric! lol
    Does that count?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Did you know deer can become a thundering herd!? We've walked over a hill on our place in the country and startled a grazing herd, and when they run, it's like a buffalo stampede!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love seeing deer in the forest. But I don't like it when the bolt across the highway.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The other day I saw a mother deer and her fawn in the yard. The fawn was the size of a large dog. It was a pretty sight to see them running together.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love Bambi's and this giveaway is a must in any collection. I collect fabric w/owls.

    ReplyDelete
  32. We have deer pass through our back yard every once in a while...and it's always a big deal yelling for the kids to come see the deer!

    ReplyDelete
  33. If the herd of deer that lives at my house isn't eating my shrubs and flowers in the front yard, they are sleeping in the woods behind my house. I am starting to see the babies with the spots.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My parents used to take us to see santas deer at the north pole, aka pennsylvania lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love deer but I worry about them running across roads! I used to live in the country in Pennsylvania and we really had deer. I would buy large bags of apples and lob them into the woods for the deer to eat. Sometimes we'd get 20 to 25 deer in our backyard eating those apples. I wish they'd stay away from roads and interstates though.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this fabric. There are some babies coming in the family and this would be absolutely WONDERFUL!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Deer are brave creatures crossing roads at any given moment when a car is just inches away. I had a couple close encounters while living in AZ. Yes AZ of all places;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. growing up my dad had a salt lick int he backyard...amazed me how quickly the deer went thru it...this fabric us cuteness overload

    ReplyDelete

  41. I see alot of deer here where I live in NZ. They run wild on the farm

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like Bambi and this almost looks like him!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh, I'd love to make a little one's quilt from this fabric. Thanks for the chance. We once had a 7 lb yorkie/cairn mix dog and we let him out in the back yard for the "bedtime business" . Well, 2 deer were standing in the meadow and he took off after them and chased them out of HIS yard. Pretty funny- he thought he was a German Shepherd!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Doe a Deer is from one of my favorite movies, The Sound of Music. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I live not too far away from a large country house where deer walk freely around. You have to watch where you walk though!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Deer are good luck for me. When I thought I was going to lose a pregnancy I saw 2 deer standing in a field. We were on our way home from the hospital and I took it as a good sign that my baby was going to make it and she's 26 years old now!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The deer on the fabric is really cute... much cuter there then in front of my car... thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh Dear! I love deer! My husband tries to hunt for deer but they dearly love to elude him!

    ReplyDelete
  49. We have a little animal parc just around the corner with a lot of deers. It is our favourite short walk to pass through there and look at all the deers!

    ReplyDelete
  50. 2 weeks ago, on a 7-mile run, my husband and I saw a deer standing at the side of the trail. It was pretty shocked to see us! I think I could have petted it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think deer are beautiful to look at ... years ago my aunt & uncle had a salt lick at the back of their yard ... so neat to watch them cautiously come & enjoy. :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm happy that my hubby enjoys deer hunting, but never shoots anything!! lol

    He is color-blind and can't see the deer until they are moving..which means it's too late...

    ReplyDelete
  53. One day when I was young we looked outside to find about 100 deer in our back yard. We were so shocked to see the congregation that we never even thought to grab a camera until about half of them left. People are still in shock when we show the picture. Then when we tell them there were even more they cannot believe it!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love this fabric! It is so cute even the skunks! :) We have lots of deer that live on our property. Most of them have lived here for awhile since they know it is safe and we don't hunt them. It is so pretty to see them early in the morning or at dusk out by our pond.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have a cabin in northern Wisconsin. The deer there are plentiful and come through our yard often while out feeding. I think the deer on the fabric are cuter! Thanks for the chance to win it. jmniffer at comcast dot net

  57. There is a three legged deer in our neighborhood.

    ReplyDelete
  58. We always have lots of deer at the start of hunting season because they know that no hunting is allowed in our neighborhood! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  59. A few years back there was a deer lying under a tree in our backyard. We thought it was giving birth. When we called the local wildlife service they came and quickly informed us that it had actualy been hit by a car and needed to be put down. I can't tell you how disappointed my kids were when they were no longer allowed to watch from the window of the deer giving birth and trying to explain the gunshot a few minutes later was interesting. Yes, my children are firm believers that deer get to go to heaven as well.

  63. You probably won't like my comment about deer ;-D We love venison, so deer are very dear to us ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Deer are elegant and beautiful animals. I live at the base of a mountain and we see the deer trotting through the neighborhood all winter, spring and fall. They love tulips, which are highly nutritious. They won't eat daffodils as they are poisonous. Occasionally, a cougar follows the deer down the mountainside. Then things get really interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Once, when I was driving in Scotland, a deer jumped from the hillside on to the top of my car and ran away! I don't think it was hurt at all but I had a terrible time explaining why I had a dent in the roof when I took the rental car back. Thanks for the chance.

  68. Even though we live in a neighborhood with houses close together, we still get the occasional visit from a couple of deer....they like huge apple tree in my yard.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I too live in the middle of a neighborhood full of deer. 2 springs ago I was sipping coffee on my deck and saw the FATTEST deer I'd ever seen -- I assumed SHE was ready to pop any day. The next morning my neighbor called me over to his backyard and pointed to a little thicket. It took me a full minute to focus on the cutest little fawn - sooo well camaflaged!! I love living here!

    ReplyDelete
  70. That little deer would look fantastic in my I spy quilt! I would love to be lucky enough to win this beautiful fabric.. I have oooh'ed and ahhh'ed over it for a while now. It is just sooo cute!

    ReplyDelete
  71. The fabrics are beautiful. When I was living in the Northeast, we had a small garden and our backyard leads into the woods. Very early one morning I looked out my window and what did I see? A mother deer standing at the edge of our yard watching as her baby was eating the broccoli from our garden.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Kinda silly, but last week 2 baby (twin) deer were born right outside my OBGYN's office! I thought.. smart mama... if she needed help... they might be able to help her!

  73. deer have eaten the lettuces in my garden. hmph. they're pretty though.

  74. So, we live out in the country, but almost never see deer on our property because of all of the local farmers etc... But this spring I was coming around the bend in our driveway to take the kids to school and then BAM...this white tail doe hops right out in front of us through the pine trees and off she went. I was so surprised I never even slowed down!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think it's too hot right now for deer to live in Alabama. Cute fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Deer are my biggest fear on mountain roads, but they are sort of cute.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Deer are fun to look at until they are darting in front of your car! Laughed when you said "yep, skunks can be sweet". We were watching Bambi the other night and this made me think of the skunk Bambi named Flower, and it was sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oh 'deer' what to say about 'deer' - hmmmm! When we travel to Northern AZ it's not unusual to see deer standing slightly off the road. Growing up on a rand in South Texas we saw many, many deer running through fields and jumping barbed wire fences. Such a graceful creature!
    Keeping my fingers crossed - this line is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I do not recommend googling "jokes about deers". :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. My husband's family owns two small islands (they really are small, and have been in the family for 100 years), and every year, deer swim over to their property from a larger island, that is quite populated, to have their fawns. There is no greater way to start your day than with a coffee on the patio and watching a deer walk by with her fawn.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Even though live near a big city, there is a forest preserve very near our home and we often see deer. We need to be careful as they cross well traveled road. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  82. One Christmas Eve my nieces were trying their best NOT to go to sleep. They were going to prove that night that Santa wasn't real. My sister was trying everything she could to get them to go to bed. Finally at one point someone looked out the window and saw a couple of deer in the front yard. They yelled "Santa's reindeer are in the yard!" The girls saw them and FREAKED--running to bed as fast as they could so Santa could deliver their presents. That year they were still believers...

    ReplyDelete
  83. We have hundreds of deer around here. I like to see them but they really do a number on my garden :(

    ReplyDelete
  84. Since I am a city gal, a deer sighting is very dear. My idea of a great vacation spot is one where the deer come out of the woods in the morning and visit while you sip your morning coffee. I could sit and sew and watch these graceful creatures for hours. This fabric line is sew cute. Perfect for a youthful snuggle quilt ... :) Pat

    ReplyDelete
  85. deers are so cute! And, so are most other critters including skunks! I'd just as soon stay far away from most though. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  86. My mom has 6 deer that visit nearly every day in her backyard.

  89. My first dog as a child was a rescued miniature fox terrier. We named him Bambi, He looked like a baby deer to us. Thanks for the great giveaway! ;>

  90. My commute takes me past quite a few fields and I love to see the deer in the mornings, especially when the young ones are out. I have a new grandchild on the way so I've been looking for ideas for a quilt (or 2). This would make a great baby quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  91. i still get excited every time i see a deer, and i live in a mountainous area.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love this fabric! A deer story...once my sister had a deer try to jump over her car as she was driving down the road. Too bad for both of them that it didn't quite make it. It ended up doing a tap dance on the roof of her car before bounding off into the forest. This is just one of several strange mishaps my sister endured in that particular car.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love deer--especially when they are made into chili. Otherwise they are very pretty.

  94. I agree, deer are cute. And they're awfully quiet and sneaky!

  96. We once lived in a house that was surrounded by woods. My husband fed the deer so that he could watch them come and feed. One year we had a mama deer with twin babies move in! She was injured and limped badly and when she first came was gaunt, obviously having problems getting food. My the time those babies were grown she was as fat as a butterfall on the corn my husband was putting out for her. :) blessings, marlene

  97. We have tons of deer here in North Texas! And here is one of my favorite moments that I've managed to catch.

  100. We have a lot of deer in our backyard because our house is set into a mountainside. One morning, we watched our Yorkie playing tag with a fawn. It was one of the sweetest things I have ever seen!

  108. That deer is so cute...vintage looking but fresh too!
    I don't think we have any deer in the deserts of Southern Utah, but remember just stopping in the middle of the street with my mouth hanging open to watch hundreds, at dusk eating the corn after they had plowed the fields in my Illinois town.

    ReplyDelete
  120. They are lovely, but if you like to garden, they are pests. Wish I had one in the freezer.

  121. When I was 16 I hit two deer at the same time with my car years. No injury or damage to my car but the deer didn't do so well. :o(

  125. Deer freely roam our farm -- and right now they are eating up the peas and corn in our family garden -- grrr -- guess have to take the attitude that we are feeding what will become our venison in the fall
    Still they are pretty on the fabric prize

  126. I love deer. I watch them from my kitchen window. I'm on the lookout for the wee spotted fawns. Unbearably cute.

  127. When I think on deer I think in Bambi and Rudolph the Red Nose Deer!!!!, the fabric's so stinking cute-adorable-lovely...

    ReplyDelete
  128. in spokane where i used to live, the deer would come right up to your window at night and eat grass. It would be cool to look out and have then 2 to 3 feet away from you, and they would not run away because usually they could not see you.

    ReplyDelete
  129. My favorite memory of deer is watching the doe and their fawns come through my mother's yard every morning and every night on their way to and from the Ashokan Resevoir, where they would go to drink. They would come right up to the patio in the Spring to show off their new babies!

    ReplyDelete
  130. We were camping a few weeks ago and a boy (probably about 10 years old) came running through our camp. He stopped long enough to say "Excuse me sir, but I think I'm being chased by a deer." Sure enough, about one minute later, a deer came prancing through our camp. Luckily, he turned and went the opposite direction from the boy. Poor kid! I bet it was scary to have a deer chasing after him! There were a lot of deer around our campsite that night.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Deer scare me when they jump out into the road :( But there are a lot near our house and night, and they are adorable on this fabric!

  136. My family couldn't believe it the year we had a whole group of deer standing on top of our frozen pool. Quite a sight! I also remember the time our family cat was in a stand-off with several deer. The deer were MAD and stomping their hooves, but she just kept hissing at them. Maybe she thought she was a guard dog...? :) Fond memories of childhood!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Forest creatures are my friends... especially looking so cute on fabric. :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Deer, where I am from are sometimes more a nuisance than "cute". They eat the corn, trample the hay and break through fences...I have had accidents as have friends, when deer pop out onto the road when you least expect it. I like to see them from afar...they are afterall one of God's creations, and he doesn't make mistakes.

  142. When growing up on a farm in IA we saw deer many times in the evenings while playing outside. They would roam up and down the fields, looking for leftover corn. I love this fabric, thanks for the chance to win.

  146. I like deer, especially when they stay in the woods. I once hit a deer who ran into my car. Poor deer. I cried and cried.

  147. Oh dear, all I can do is offer a bad joke with a terrible pun:
    Knock knock,
    Who's there?
    Rain
    Rain who?
    Please let me in out of the rain dear.

    Thanks for the chance!

  149. Did you know that deer love petunia blossoms... To eat that is?! They sure do, I've seen it myself, right by our front door! They will also drink water from a fountain that's right in front of a house with people looking out the windows at them! We love living in the "country"!

    I cracked up laughing.

  153. Best deer I ever saw were leaping over 5 foot snow drifts the day AFTER Christmas - I was about 10 and was convinced they were Santa's reindeer enjoying the day off.

  154. Can you believe in my previous life I was a deer hunter??? I can hardly believe it and can't even imagine doing it any more! I oooed and awed over a fawn I saw along side the road yesterday.

  157. Deer are beautiful animals. My husband and son are hunters, so we always have venison in our freezer. My dad was also a hunter, so I grew up on venison. I know that many think that hunting them is wrong, but it is needed to prevent over population.

  158. Let's see...sometimes we see deer in my grandfather's backyard when we visit.

  159. My husband comes from a long line of deer hunters. Venison was our main protein thru college and medical school. Now I don't care for it as much but we still bottle, jerky and make deer burger out of what he and the boys hunt.

  166. When I go and babysit the grands, we watch the deer feed near their pond. They are such pretty little things. I don't know how anyone could shoot them.

  167. We do not see alot of deer around here, only up in the forests even then they can be scarce. I remember we saw a gorgeous deer in Scotland bouncing and leaping over huge puddles of water after alot of rain, very idylic!

  168. Oh Bambi is my favorite. When my nephew would come over for a visit with his auntie, we would curl up on the bed and watch. He was 2 at the time, but claims he still remembers it now while he is 17! How sweet!
