Day 12 Give Away!!!! + A Winner

I cannot believe that today is the last day of the Give Aways!!!  You know if I could I would give something to each and everyone of you.  I so appreciate all the stitching support throughout the year :)  

Yesterday was a non-stop day filled with have to's, last minute shopping and a wonderful gathering of friends.  I cancelled my cable...I can count on one hand the number of times in the last year we actually watched cable TV.  So, I had to take all the TV hooks up back to the cable company...then a bit of Christmas Shopping.  After which I picked up Connor and Silas's Fairy Godmother so we could attend a party. Two wild and crazy stitchers!!

After the party I headed home but first had to stop at the car dealership so get one of those annoying messages that my car kept giving me deleted!  I can't stand that the car seems to be smarter than me!

With all the traffic and errands I made it home to the most spectacular is a blessing!

Well...I know you have been waiting for the final give away...and yes, it is a spectacular one!  Gail Pans wonderful book of projects!  So if you are interested leave a comment below and we'll see who the Dog Dish chooses!  I'll announce on Tuesday as I am going back to the regularly scheduled blog post which are Tuesday and Thursday :) Remember, once I announce the winner you'll have 24 hours to send me your mailing address and please if entering be a registered follower of the Woolie Blog and Quilt Roadies

Day Eleven Give Away + A Winner!

I did it again...the day got away from me and I couldn't get the blog post here it is a bit late!!!  It is hard to believe how fast time is flying by this month!  I spent yesterday morning tacking binding while watching Christmas movies...then it was errand running time.    In the morning you couldn't even see the mountains but by the afternoon they were out in all their glory!  

G put together his fabulous Pad Thai and we headed to Bend for the Clubbies and Hubbies Potluck Christmas Party in the evening.  This is a casual book group with no agenda or rules.  Just good company, good food and good books!

I decided to switch it up for the Day 11 Give Away...cross stitch!  Now you know how much I loved stitching this project.  Not only beautiful but it cracked me up because I can tell you this is G's mantra, LOL

Day 9 Give Away + A Winner

Yesterday was a busy day...Enzo getting his Christmas haircut...then a trip to the Vet for his Quilt Roadie traveling immunizations.  I love our Vet in Sisters :)  Still stitching away...hoping to slide into home plate with all the finishes I want to get done.  Stopped at the post office to mail off more of the Give Aways and some of my Christmas cards.  Today is the meeting of my Sisters book group and it is at my I have got to clean up a bit!

Well...lets get to it!  I have got a nice surprise for the Give Away...another Edyta Sitar pattern but this one includes the template and some left over fabric.  I loved making this one but I didn't want to make it as big as the pattern so I didn't use all the fabric that Homestead Hearth provided for the BOM.  So if you are interested in this Give Away leave a comment below and be sure to be a registered follower of the Woolie Blog and Quilt Roadies

Give Away Day 7 + A Winner

Oops sorry for the late posing!  My schedule has been a typical holiday month schedule...I can't seem to get a handle on it, was foggy and cold in Sisters and while sunny and cold in Bend!  And, let me ask you this...why was everyone at Costco?!!!  I am trying to carve out seconds here and seconds there to finish up some projects and so far the seconds have been adding up to some finishes.

Todays Give Away is a Primitive Gathering quilt that has scrap written all over and if you use Lisa's half square triangle paper this quilt is a piece of cake...or at least several pieces of cake, LOL...oh I crack myself up!  So if you are interested leave a comment below!

The Day 6 winner is...

It is hard to believe we are already half way through the Give Away!  My nose has been on the stitching grind stone, LOL...There are many holidays being celebrated this month...Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa,  Boxing Day, Omisoka,  Winter Solstice to name a few!  So there are many reasons to celebrate this month. And, whatever holiday you celebrate I love that the common thread of Giving is the reason for the season.  I try to walk the walk all year long.  I have to thank those previous winners for getting back to me quickly because it makes my life easier, lol and not so confusing.  

The Day 6 Give Away is a simple sweet pattern by Bonnie Sullivan so if you are interested leave a comment below and please be a registered follower of the Woolie Blog and Quilt Roadies  Best Wishes!
