Giveaway... Merry Christmas!

I want to extend a Happy Christmas and a Happy Chanukah to all of my online friends.
I hope you are all well and with family and friends and may the new year bring blessings to you all.
I feel blessed to be able to call all of you my friends.

I decided to do a Valentine theme for the giveaway, it is right around the corner.
The winner will receive my little valentine quilt, some of my hand dyed thrift wool, fat quarters and a little cross stitch kitty. A second winner will receive a choice of any two of my epatterns. The giveaway starts tonight and ends on sunday, at midnight, eastern time. I will announce the winners on Monday, the 26th.

So what do you need to do to enter? First, this is for followers only, new followers are always welcome.
Tell me what crafts you like to do and what types of patterns you would like to do, but can never find, and would like to see. What themes or subjects would you like to see.


I wanted to show you a really special set that my friend Kelley sent me for Christmas. She hooked this pillow set and I just love it, so different and unique. I put it up with my kitties for now, but after the holidays, I will do a nice display with it.


And today was one of those days that I should not have tried something new, my brain is mush. I wanted to make an ipad case that opens but my first attempt didn't work, so I went with a simple case for now, and still made a mess, lol. It just fits, guess I wasn't watching my seam lines;) The fun kitty fabric is a prize from Barbara of Cat Patches. She has been having fun friday giveaways and I was the lucky winner of a book and this fabric. And you can guess what is in it, my early Christmas present;)

Merry Christmas Debbie! Congrats on 300 followers. I have always enjoyed needle punching. I am always on the lookout for punch patterns with sampler themes and I have a recent obsession with owls. Be not Halloween owls. Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday.

Merry Christmas Debbie and congratulations on 300 followers! I have always envied those who do needle punching or rug hooking..I never find the time to start one, but they look like such fun. I was also thinking what fun it would be to make a nativity out of fabric...lots of prim animals!
Enjoy your holidays and thanks for an opportunity to win some of your goodies.

I can't belive that someone else said this....I also am looking for a cute owl to hook. My uncle loved owls and had a stuffed one since I was a kid, the thing scared me to death. Anyway this past year he died of colon cancer and the famous owl went to his daughter, my cousin. She loves owls and her whole Christmas tree is done in owls and there's even an owl on the top. Sooooo....I would love to hook her an owl. Need someone to draw a good one for me. (hint hint) She would go nuts if I hooked her an owl. Should have thought of it sooner. Merry Christmas!

Patti said...

Merry Christmas!
My favorite crafts are cross stitch and wool applique. I love quick little projects that are easy to stitch in hand and easy to finish by hand. My favorite themes are seasonal. Would also love to see a wool applique Adam & Eve.
Blessings, Patti

About the only craft I do anymore is stitching and making quilts. I love simple and scrappy patterns, because I have lots of scraps to use up! And of course I'm a follower! Merry Christmas! :0)

Karen said...

Quilting is my main pastime. I love applique and wool applique. Folk art is my favorite style and I am always interested in finding more applique patterns in a folk art style.

Your iPad case turned out great! I love it. I enjoy doing embroidered quilts and traditional piecing. I'll admit to being a sucker for cat quilts.

I love Kelley's cat set...what a great idea! Your giveaway sounds awesome. I'm a rug hooker and I'm getting into cross stitch! I like most everything, but how about bee skeps. Oh, and add me to the owl crowd too!
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Debbie! No need to enter me in the giveaway...just wanted to stop by to say 'hey'. Congrats on the 300 followers!

Chris said...

Hi Debbie!
Please enter me in your giveaway.
My crafting is just cross stitch and counted thread. I do not sew, sometines I think I would like to but don't want my crafting to get more out of hand then it already is. Also if I get anywhere near a sewing machine it jams up.
I love reproduction samplers, some prims and BBD, PS and some other classic deigners.
I love the gifts you received. So lovely.
Wishing you a new year filled with health and happiness!

Great idea! I've had Valentine's on the brain for about a week now? Still enjoying Christmas, of course... but all the reds and pinks of Valentine's is pretty too! Kelley's gift to you look fabulous! Very clever! Have a Merry Christmas!

Shelley said...

Wishing you Merry Christmas Debbie! I love cats and would love to see more primitive cat themed patterns on the market for quilting or wool work, my two favorite crafts.

Merry Christams, Deb! Love seeing all your projects. I do punchneedle mostly as I have carpal tunnel and can no longer hold fine needles in my fingers. But I choose projects by subject, such as cats, sheep, snowmen, anything Americana. But I appreciate and collect a variety of craft types. Have a healthy new year!

Thank you for a Christmas giveaway! I've tried many different types of crafts, but right now I am into quilting and making things for my grandchildren.

Annie said...

Hope your Christmas was fantastic! As a cat lover, I love cat patterns such as Kelly's. Another of my favorite designers is Maria Barton. Somehow those simple patterns hold the most interest for me. Happy holidays and the best of the new year for you! :) annie

Raspberry Lane Primitives said...

I'm a follower and would love to be entered in your wonderful giveaway. I love any type of wool...hooked, penny rugs, applique. I too love the owl theme. I think we'll be seeing more of them. I especially love them because they represent wisdom and have references to teaching. (and I'm a nursing professor)...patti :)

Lesley Ann Staples said...

Merry Christmas. And you hit three hundred. Wow that's awesome. I enjoy rug hooking. I like simple fun patterns. Right now I am on the lookout for 3D patterns I am running out of wall space...lol. Thanks for the chance to win.

Thank you for the great giveaway. Looks like fun! Hope you had a Merry Christmas. May the New Year bring you more time to stitch and play with wool.

I'm too late to enter you giveaway - but that's ok....(Running way, way, behind these days....) Just wanted to say I adore your gift from Kelley....Love her style and work. And, I'll still answer the questions you posed regarding crafts/patterns: I'm a hooker, puncher, and cross-stitcher (although the latter is getting more difficult to see, since I prefer the higher linen counts). I love old reproduction samplers and fraktur style things....Hope your Christmas was filled with everything merry and bright....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
