GIVING THANKS BLOG HOP WITH GIVE-AWAYS

GIVE AWAY IS NOW CLOSED
Once again it's time for the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop. These are always a lot of fun and a great way to discover new blogs and 'meet' new people.  It's also a way for us who have quilt blogs to thank all of you for stopping by and leaving such encouraging comments.

My give-away consists of something hand made and something purchased. These little buckets were fun to make and are useful too! The big one could hold scraps, so to get you started how about 4 fat quarters of Jenni Bakers' Nordika. The little one is a thread catcher and it looks like it has already snagged a few spools  : )





To enter, just leave me one comment on this post. Give-away is open until November 26 at which time I will use Mr. Random Number generator to choose a winner. Yes, I will ship internationally.

The list of all the participating blogs will be available later this afternoon. Click here to visit all the other blogs and enter the give-aways.  Enjoy the Hop and good luck  : )

I love handmade gifts. As a quilter, I get them so rarely. I'm usually the one making and giving to non quilty peeps. We should gift other quilters with handmade goodies more often.

Mom C said...

How darling! I've been working with my granddaughters and I've noticed they don't seem to realize that thread can be carefully cut and put in the garbage. i probably should make them vacuum and clean up around their sewing area when we are done. Thanks.
