Giving Thanks Blog Hop Party


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.

W.I.P. 11-6-2013

Witches in Stitches - Still need to do a few finishing touches should have it completed for next week.
Texas Teardrop - Needs more quilting done
Mimi's Bloomers - Needs more quilting done
Atlantis Rising - haven't even looked at it as it is still too heavy for me to work with.

Rusty's Quilt - I designed this myself several months ago then temporarily lost the use of my right arm again.  Well.... finally got it almost done.  All it needs is to hand sew the binding to the back.  Will be finished sometime today.  That ius Rusty himself (the little ham).  This will be going into his kennel which he uses as his bed.

FMN - got the quilt top done.  Will be going out tonight to get backing material for it.  Took me forever to get it done but all that extra time was worth it.  I am so happy with how it turned out.
