Well, I decided on the giveaway prizes, as you can tell by the title.
I really love this piece and hope you will too. It is made from a design by Tiffany of Primitive Blessings. You will also get a pillow with a Primitive Blessings design and a quarter yard of whimsicals prim americana fabric to make your own summer piece.

To enter, leave a comment telling me what your plans are for this summer vacation.
I am so sick of winter and cold, and so ready for getting out again.
I want to go camping on a lake, in the mountains and paddle and bike and relax.
No shopping or driving around, just having fun outside.
Though, with the gas prices, I may be doing that close to home;)

Leave a comment on this posting only, and I will draw a winner on April 30th.
First place winner will receive the stitchery, pillow and fabric, and the second place winner can have their choice of one of my epatterns.

I want to wish everyone a Happy and Blessed Easter day.

Hubby and I have decided to travel to Mt.Rushmore this year for our summer vacation. Neither of us has been before, but I've heard it's a nice place to visit. I'm trying to find out about great shops in the area - don't want to miss out on some good shopping! LOL

My husband, daughter and I are going to Hawaii for 8 days! We are celebrating my daughter's college graduation, my 2 year breast cancer survival, and the fact that we've

oooops, and the fact that we've wanted to go for many years and now's the time

I have absolutely no idea what will happen this summer, none at all! Our two children are students and both are waiting to find out if they are getting internships or not, and if so, where they will be and for how long. Everything is on hold until then. Keeping our fingers crossed that we'll have answers in the next two weeks!

Happy Easter!

Please enter me into the giveaway. I have no vacation plans this year. We have 2 in braces, and 3 teens that will be taking drivers ed in June, and a younger one that will be going to scout camp. After drivers ed, "I" might need a vacation! =)

A daughter and grandson will be visiting us for 2 weeks in June, so our vacation will be showing them the sights and many times eating out-----oh--the waistline is going to expand.

Sweet sweet sweet goodies!

My summer vacation plans? I am really not sure yet. My kiddo is going to keep me busy & hopefully we will be busy close to home. The price of gas is scary for everyone. We are especially concerned being a single income family.

Since I just started a new job, no vacation for me unfortunately. But I'll be spending the time here at home getting my little garden ready. I'll be getting an old antique porch swing from my grandfather shortly so I envision lazy summer days on the swing with iced tea while working on my stitcheries. And if my Gracie has her way, I'm sure she'll sneak outside to lay up on the swing with me!!

Angela said...

We do a local Farmer's Market as a family every Saturday and love it! Hopefully we will have lots of veggies and flowers (plants/cut) to share besides are crafty goodies if the rain every stops. A couple short day trips are being planned. Thank you for sharing.

TheCrankyCrow said...

Very awesome prizes Debbie...Oh...I wanna win these!!
Vacation plans??? Hmmmm...well, being currently unemployed, no "formal" fun time is in the budget. But, for me, just having some warm weather, a patch of dirt to dig in during the day, sunny skies to dry my bedding on the line in, and some hookin' or stitchin' after the sun sets will suit me fine. It will definitely be a "vacation" from this horrid winter we've been having. Thanks so much for the opportunity. Happy & Joyous Easter to you! Hugs, Smiles & Blessings ~ Robin

Jennifer @ Stitchin' Thyme said...

I would love to spend some good quality time with my kids. I feel we have drifted away this past year and want to get closer again!! Thank you for the chance to win this awesome giveaway.

Courtney said...

So far we are planning to spend a week in a cottage up in Maine, near Acadia. I am looking forward to biking, hiking, antiquing, and eating lobster! If we move, though, maybe we'll stay-cation and just play with a new house!
Lovely prizes!

Lei B. said...

We have no plans for this summer as of right now. We might end up taking a few day trips to places in the area. My main goal is to have fun with my son and husband as much as possible.

flutterbygone's said...

We are taking our annual trek to Cherokee, NC. My mom can not, due to meds, be in the sun too long or in chlorine, so the beach is out for her. My kids LOVE the mountains, but we will be adding a few new things to our trip. Over Spring Break, I took the kids there for an overnite stay and we went horseback riding and hiking - their first time! They are now hooked and we will be adding that to our agenda!!! It is always so nice to leave SC on the 4th of July being SOOOOO hot and drive over the mountains and let the windows down and almost be chilly!!!!

Lorraine said...

Summer plans include spending precious time with family...children & grand children. That is always the BEST.

MosaicMagpie said...

No plans right now, but the warm weather will be great!

Plan a trip to visit some family and enjoy some antiquing and fleamarketing while there.Mainly I just want to sit with my bare feet in the grass enjoying some sweet tea and relaxing in the warm sun.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Quilt Hollow said...

We won't be traveling this summer. Just can't afford it right now with two kids in college, and gosh the gas prices! I think we will just have to get creative and go on hikes locally and stuff like that. We aren't even joining the pool this year (a first in many years for us but kids are older now).
I'm looking forward to the warmth and sweet tea...perhaps a lounger under a shade tree...this about sums it up I guess.

Debbie ~
Happy Easter to you and your family.
I've got a trip planned with my BFF from college to visit the Coverlet Museum in PA, do some antiquing and hopefully stop at Grant Street Woolworks.
I also want to spend lots of time with the grand, letting him swim and enjoying the great outdoors!
Pug hugs :)

Lori said...

Our time usually consists of work, work, work, btu when we can get away we love to go camping on Mt Hood and take the little fishing boat. It's relaxing to be out tin nature and have lots of down time.
At the end of August I am going on a cruise!

Linda said...

We're taking a trip to the Berkshires in late June, maybe some sightseeing beyond there, I hope! The rest of the summer I'll spend anticipating cooler weather in the fall!

YankeeQuilter said...

I have three nephews getting married this summer so I will be in Boston, Cape Cod, and NYC for three consecutive weekends...though I am planning lots of quilt related day trips in-between!

Heartsdesire said...

I'm hoping to get to the quilt show in Sisters, Oregon with a friend of mine this summer. We went a few years ago and had a wonderful time. Travelled back to Canada via the coast highway. Found a neat little quilt shop, don't remember the name, and also a number of great restaurants. The scenery was lovely and we have been talking about taking this trip again. So, this is the year! Hope you are enjoying the Easter weekend.

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Love your giveaway items. Please enter me.
This year for vacation we plan to travel west, first to attend our youngest son's wedding in Minnesota, then we will go further west to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, ending up in northern Idaho to visit Mr. Whimzies' family.
Thanks for offering this great giveaway!

Terry said...

I love Annies! Thanks for the giveaway! This summer we'll be doing as much as we can close to home. I'd like to take the kids to the Columbus zoo, and hiking at least a few times. I hope to take them canoeing too. IF the weather ever gets nice! LOL

Karen Farley said...

This Summer I will be staying at home and making the biggest garden ever!!!!! With gas prices sooooo high I will spend time in my garden.

Carrie P. said...

Happy Easter Debbie,
My husband and I are taking a trip to CA. Can't wait.

Allie said...

Happy Easter Debbie! Oh what a gorgeous give-away. I'm so sick of winter and cold and rain too - I'm hoping this year we go back up to my cousin's cottage on Lake Huron, it's my favorite place in the world. I grew up summering there, and until last year, hadn't been there for 30 years. It was magical and I'm ready to go back!

Kathie said...

with one in college our vacations are normally just taking day trips and visiting family in RI
I am dreaming of a vacation though and have been saving for a trip to the big quilt show in Houston maybe this year!

How was you Easter? Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

Laurie sowthacres said...

We are splurging this year and heading to Turks and Caicos in the Bahamas. Our kids are about ready to graduate from college so we figured we better get in one more family vacation before they are too busy with their own lives to join us, or begin to aquire spouses :)

Sue Tokash said...

Our family vacation will be a couple of days at Virginia Beach. Looking forward to getting the whole gang together, so hard now that all my chickies are fledgling. Later husby and I are spending a week in Massachusetts.

twoives said...

Not sure what the hubby and I will do for a vacation. But the first week of August I will be in Ligonier, PA hooking with Barb Carroll. That will be my wonderful vacation with 3 friends.

~Madalynne~ said...

Great giveaway Debbie! The summer finds our family in the backyard. We had a pool put in a couple of years ago and spend most of our time swimming and sunning. We do quickie getaways just about every month the rest of the year. This month was the Bronx Zoo . . . what a blast!

Jean said...

Around the pool with daughter and grandchildren enjoying the sun and family.Also in the garden with the flowers.Working on some small quilts too.

Firecracker Kid said...

Well, let me see... I'll be staying in Ohio, specifically in my backyard with my fur babies and family, hopefully tending to a flower and produce bed. Hoping to grow a green thumb this year:)

Thanks sweety;)

Debbie,

My plans for the summer is to be moving into a new home where I can take all of my hooking out of the boxes and redo my wool room. I don't remember what all I have as most of it has been in storage.

A separate room just to hook in is a must on my purchase list. My Realtor doesn't quite understand why I want to devote a whole room to it. She hasn't seen the boxes of wool that are packed away.

Lizzie said...

What a great giveaway! I am a new follower. Love your work. With gas prices the way they are...I will be staying home this summer and spending quality time with my family, planting a big garden, working in my flower beds, trying to keep my 10 yr. old son occupied (LoL) and hopefully getting my unfinished craft projects done that have been piling up.

I LOVE your giveaway prizes! For summer "vacation," my husband and I will be getting all the interior painting done in our new house. Fun!! =)

Kathy H said...

We will be visiting family in Michigan this summer. We haven't had a reunion for years and years. Not everyone can travel far anymore so it will be great to get us all together. We can even update our family pictures. I love to look at them.

Prims and Annies said...

We love to get away to St. Augustine, FL... the oldest city..just spend the day strolling down the streets and shoppes. People actually live next to the tourist area. We stopped and talked to one recently and she says she loves living there, and that she meets people from all over the world. Touring the old fort is awesome..lots of Bed and Breakfast and the beach...although I don't care much for sand. There are 2 ghost tours that are very educational...great guides. Love the giveway...please enter me.
Thanks so much
Maxie

Tracy
