Giving Thanks Blog Hop Party

STARTS TODAY

Make sure you check out all the blogs and hopefully make some new blog friends.  Lots of fun to be had and lots of drawings will be held.  Starts today and ends on Tuesday Nov 26.


So you ready to for the drawings.  Yes there is a plural there.  I will be drawing 1 international, and 1 United States.  Each will receive a Baby Item Quilt pattern which is my own design via email.  The U.S. one will also receive a goodie package in the mail.



Sorry for the not so great photos.  Each of the main  blocks has a baby item embroidered on it.  Items range from bottle to infant swing.

So here is your "hoop" to jump through.  Leave a comment with your location.  Country or U.S. state.  Also your favorite color would be nice.  If you do not include these in your comment you will not be entered.  All entries must have a valid email attached to their posting account.

Click the "Giving Thanks Blog Hop Party" button on my sidebar and start hopping or just click on this link  Giving Thanks Blog Hop Party

Our somewhat unique drawing procedure is as follows:

1.  All entries will be separated by International or U.S.
2.  Each entry will be written out and placed into a hat
3.  Once we have stirred up each set of entries we will then dump the International Entries onto the floor
4.  The Sewing Supervisor (aka Rusty) will run into the room and grab a piece of paper from the floor.  (He has been trained to turn in scraps of material and basically anything else that drops on the floor)  His training costs a Variety Snaps cookie, which he adores.
5.  The process will be repeated for the U.S. entries.
6.  Chosen winners will be notified via Email.

Due to the high volume that can happen during blog hops I may not get a chance to respond to everyone.

I can't believe that I originally forgot to thank Michelle for hosting such a wonderful bloghop.
