Welcome everyone!  Michele over at the Quilting Gallery is hosting a Blog hop party with give-aways and I decided to join in on the fun!  There are well over 200 bloggers participating in the blog hop, so get ready for some serious hopping folks!  Lots of goodies to be won.
Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

To thank all those who have signed up as followers I'm giving away some of my Stoney Creek strata -  


six pieces of the the pinks,


six pieces of the turquoise,


six pieces of the purples, and


four pieces of the greens, and some of the owl batik as well.

I'm also giving away a deck of creativity cards for quilters and five cheery fat quarters.





I'll select the 5 winners on December 17th, so be sure to sign up if you haven't already and leave a comment.  I will ship internationally, so don't worry about that.  Let me know what your favourite Christmas carol is and what gift you would like to win the most!

I have so many Christmas favorites: Angels We Have Heard On High is my favorite traditional carol (love singing those in-egg-shellcious-deos), but I also love Let It Snow, Jingle Bells, Walking in a Winter Wonderland. I'd love any of the give-aways! Thanks.

  61. My favorite Christmas carol changes from day to day, hour to hour, sometimes minute to minute. I think Away in a Manger and Jingle Bells are both always at the top. :) What would I like to win?

Quilted blessings, Nita

  86. I have always loved the song that begins - do you hear what I hear ... but now that my 2 year old is getting into Christmas I love to sing Jingle Bells with him. I say Jingle, and he shouts bells. It's a lot of fun, and I have to admit jingle Bells is becoming my new favorite.

    I love all of your strata, and the creativity cards look interesting. The straight fabric is not my normal color choice but that's what makes it fun to use! Thank-you for the chance to win!
