Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop

Party Time has finally arrived

  Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways  Yahoo!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by - The giveaway is done!


Update :  Yahoo!!  I will pick a third winner for a needle case or set of mug rugs.  I will leave this open until 4:00 am Friday 3/15/13 PST (Pacific Standard Time) USA.   Then I'll pick the three winners.  Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you come back and visit again.
And Thanks to Michelle at the Quilting Gallery for all the time and effort to put this together.

I'll Post the winners tomorrow and try to contact. 

Okay I am a little excited here - But it is my first Blog Hop that I am actually part of.

So to tell you a little about me, I am a wife to my very best friend. We have 3 grown children 5 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. I still work full time  + some, but try to take on quilty projects like I have no other responsibilities in the world.  So yes to the next question - I do have lots of UFO's, which of course I vow to finish soon.  Ha ha  So along with finishing the UFO's this year the other thing I have been interested in working on is being able to Free Motion Quilt at least well enough to do some of my smaller projects. 
I really enjoy all of the swaps and have participated in most of them that have been put on by the Quilting Gallery. Also I have found a group who does a monthly swap of doll quilts, Called Doll Quilts Monthly.  This will be my first month of swapping with them but so far is has been wonderful, to see what others are creating.  Along with swapping I tend to get excited about BOM's, and of course have several in various stages of completion. I also belong to a group called "Keep me in Stitches" and we do a "BABRR" it is like a round robin but you only do a block. 
So take a minute if you have it and look through some of my pictures, I'm sure I don't have them all posted but there are some. As you will notice I like to applique. I tend to favor needle turn but I do like to do other methods, as you will see in my give away(s).  Was that plural?

And now without further delay......  A Giveaway!   I know it's the best part.... I think so too.

I'm offering a couple items for the giveaway and all I want you to do is to leave a comment and let me know what your favorite color is & which item you want. More on that below so keep reading. I will pick in order of number picked so I can't guarantee you will get the one you want, unless you are the 3rd winner. I will be picking 2 winners to start and if I get more than 100 comments I will pick a third winner.

Give away #1 is four 1/4 yard cuts (not fat qtrs) of Civil War Reproduction fabric:


Give away #2 is this set of Mug Rugs:



   Close up!


Now for the third give away (if I get over 100 comments) will be a needle case or set of mug rugs, so just let me know what your favorite color(s) are and which of those two items you want and I will surprise you. So add that in because if the list gets big that doesn't mean the #4 won't get that last pick.

Okay all set leave your comment here then don't forget to go back to the Quilting Gallery and hop to some of the other blogs in the:  Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop

Make sure to leave an email address so I can get ahold of you and Yes I will ship Internationally!

Thanks to the Quilting Gallery for hosting this Blog Hop and Thank you for stopping by.

    My color...hmm...I'm all about the aqua and red lately, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Oh how exciting, your first blog hop. Yay. I have to say that if that's a current picture of you that you do not look old enough to have a Great Grandson! Being married to your very best friend is a wonderful thing, isn't it? It took me 3 tries, but I am now married to a wonderful man who I know is my soulmate and for sure my best friend also. It sure makes life much more fun.

    I would love the fabric, but my Granddaughter living with us right now would also love the cute fishy. She's only 1 yr old so it would probably be used for other than a mug rug. She has one little quilt I made for a quilt along in her crib and plays with it. She loves it. So, I would be happy with either. My favorite color is purple.
    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway and a choice too.
