BLOG HOP PARTY

Happy 5th Birthday to the Quilting Gallery!  They are celebrating with another blog hop and give-aways! There are a lot of blogs for you to visit and each one is hosting a give-away as well.

I was looking back over some previous blog hops, and discovered that this will be the fourth time I have participated . This time around I am offering a 12 days of Christmas tree skirt made last winter.  It measures approximately 39" square.






The colours are quite true in these pics.





If you think you might have room for this little quilty under your tree, just leave me one comment.
*SORRY I have had to disallow comments left by 'anonymous'-----way too much junk mail.


Click HERE to visit all the participating blogs. The list will be available starting on Dec. 10th.

Give-away runs until December 15th when I will randomly choose a winner, and yes I will ship internationally.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the blog hop   : )

That is a very lovely tree skirt. I really need to find a good one because our current one is flimsy, store-bought, and doesn't actually fit under our tree very well.

I love the 12 Days of Chiristmas. I used to do several families every year and I was always on the lookout for tie ins for the days. It got too crazy about 5 years ago and now I do Christmas jars filled with quarters. But I still love 12 days stuff and collect them when I find something really special. Your tree skirt certainly is special. Thanks.
