Over 200!

Update: Entries for 200th-post giveaway are now closed. Winner to be announced on Saturday morning! Thanks for stopping by!

********************************************************************

No, I’m not immortal or 200 years old. Silly.  I was going to do a giveaway to celebrate my 200th post, but that is long past me now.

In honor and support of my sewing friends, I would like to do a giveaway to celebrate all of you.  I want  to offer these two quilt pattern booklets from my good friend Paula of Pacific Patchwork. She is a quilt designer extraordinaire with a great collection of quilt patterns. And she’s also a good friend of mine!

Hooked on Charms booklets

Go check out her fun shop and her witty blog. She has a great Block of the Month party going on, and this Seasons Sew Along you should try too.

I will also throw in this set of blue and green Katie Jump Rope fabrics.katies jump rope fabrics for giveaway

If you have commented on my blog previously, you qualify! Please leave a comment by the end of Friday, and I will announce the winner the very next day. If you don’t mind sharing, I would be interested in hearing what you’re going to make for Christmas presents this year. (I need some ideas.) Cheers, my friends!

  • Well done on 200 posts Terri!! I haven’t done much for christmas yet – I am still working on a quilt for my Mothers 70th birthday in November. Sarah and I always give baked gooodies and home make preserves. Not sure yet what other gifts I will sew – perhaps some placemats and coasters for summer entertaining.

  • Thanks for the giveaway. I am making some Christmas stockings this year…and if I get the gumption together, I have a bunch of old neck ties I want to use to make a tree skirt…this project has been laying around for 4 years though…so maybe this is the year!!
    I just got a bunch of charm packs from ebay and would love those patterns! Thanks for a chance…very generous fabric giveaway too. You are the best!

  • Make for Christmas presents!? I will have to come back and read all your comments – I have no idea!! Last year I made doll quilts for the girls, maybe placemats this year 🙂

    Those patterns look like fun! Thanks for sharing

  • Congrats Terri! I don’t think I can bear to think about Christmas gifts yet! (but I bet one will be a quilt!) Sorry I can’t help with ideas…

    Thanks for the giveaway, and again, congrats!

  • What a nice giveaway! For Christmas, I am hoping to make a cargo scarf for our daughter who will be studying in France next semester, aprons for my friends, a cape for my niece, and some warm hats for my Mom who will be starting chemo in a few weeks and will probably lose her hair.

  • Count me in! I’m impressed you are past 200! Congrats!

  • Great patterns and fabrics — giveaways are always so fun! Christmas! Oh my — you are way ahead of me. Everyone in my family (except me) has a Fall birthday! But it’s a good reminder to think a little father ahead!

    PS — you look great for being over 200!

  • Congrats on 200! And thanks so much for the new blog link–another one to add to my list! Oh, and for Christmas presents…pincushions for sewing friends and framed mini-quilts for family. Also a few tote bags…hope I can get everything finished. Last year everybody got table runners!

  • A giveaway! I love them! Thanks for hosting.

    For Christmas we’re considering taking a trip to Kauai. No tree, no Santa, no presents. Visiting family….celebrating each other. If that doesn’t pan out…..I’ll be making bandanas for everyone’s dogs and crayon rolls for the little ones. Possibly bags for my teen daughters.

  • Congrats, Terri…I’m happy to say I’ve read and enjoyed all 200+ of them! Looks like you and Mom had a good time at the drawing workshop…keep up the talented explorations!

  • Christmas presents?!?!?!?!?
    No idea, but thanks for starting me thinking.

  • Congratulations! I’m making the moms in my life a kitchen set wth apron and oven mitss, and any other goodies I think of between now and Christmas!

  • Terri, congratz on the 200 posts!! You are soo sweet and thank you for having this lovely this giveaway! Loving the two quilt pattern booklets and the fabrics.

    Christmas…my fav holiday! I have yet to really sit down and list down what i would like to make this christmas. Last year i made fabric & paper mixed media collage for friends.

    Have a lovely merry happy day and love to yoU!

  • My daughter is getting married within a week of Christmas so I figure that is an excuse to not do presents, except for the kids and they want Legos and American Girl dolls! It’s gonna be an easy year!

    Yeah for 200!

  • Ohh…so exciting! And how cool that you have a friend who is a quilt designer! I will have to check out her blog. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I’m going to finish up my vintage linen quilts for the kids, then I thought about making some market bags for some of the girls in the family, and perhaps a cute bag or two…where am I going to find time since I now have to work!? 🙂

  • Hi Terri! A giveaway. . .how sweet! As for Christmas gifts, Rouenerries a new fabric line from Moda by French General will have toweling on the bolt. Because I always make goody gift baskets, I’ll include some dish towels and probably some of the potholders I’ve been making or some napkins. . . keeping with the food/kitchen theme.

  • I love to read your blog and see the quilts you make. They give me inspiration! Christmas this year is all about “simple”.

  • ooh count me in please
    i’m making pincushions for christmas this year, and as i’m learning to crochet probably something crocheted!!!

  • Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway! For Chanukah this year, I’ll probably make something fun and simple, like quiltblock potholders. I wish the fabric manufacturers would offer more Chanukah fabric (I love all the whimsical Christmas-themed fabrics, but the colors and patterns certainly don’t work for Chanukah)!

  • Looks like a great give away – I am a new quilter and would especially like to have the patterns and fabric. I am a knitter also – for Christmas I am knitting some cute kitchen dish cloths and combining them with a bottle of dish wash from Williams Sonma. I have also thought about quilted pot holders and maybe a cute sauce pan,etc
