Giveaway Day - 12/12/2011

*** Giveaway Closed ***
 Winner will be announced tomorrow at 6am.


Hello! {waves frantically} Welcome to all the hoppers from Sew Mama Sew!  If you didn't come from there, you should go there to check out all the giveaways on the blogiverse.  It's a smashing good time! (now imagine I just said that in an Austin Powers voice...better, right?)

First, a little about me.  :)  I am a wife of a firefighter with no kids.  I work full time and I love to quilt.  I have (in just the past few years) discovered that quilting is my creative passion.  I started my blog last year on order to share with friends and family.

Okay, okay.  On to the fun stuff.  The giveaway!

Today, you have a chance to win enough fleece(?) squares to make a baby quilt.  There are 90 squares and they are each 4.5 inches square.  They could be flannel.  I've never been good at remembering the fuzzy ones.  LOL.


I will not require that you become a follower, but it sure would be nice!

All you have to do to win is comment on this post with your favorite quote of all time.  No quote, no entry.  Simple as that.  The giveaway closes on December 16th at 5pm EST.  I will draw a winner at that time and post about it on the 17th.  The winner will have 48 hours to reply to the email or I will have to draw a new winner so that the prize can be shipped by the 24th.

This giveaway is open to ALL people.  I don't care where you live...except for the moon.  That could get expensive.

Good luck to all!

  1. Well I'm not on the moon but I am in the UK!!
    When we were children my mum always said " if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!" I'm not sure where it originated but I find myself saying it to my own children now!
    Thank you!

    PS: I have been meaning to let you know that quilting Shiny fabric DOES INDEED work well; in fact with tonal thread it looked amazing and the finished quilt looks rich, textured and really 'deep' in a wonderful fabric-y way. That's from a post on my blog you left way back in November. Sorry for the tardiness; and I love love LOVE your site!

  23. "Admittedly, the area possesses a dowdiness I personally have always found comforting, but to think of Wisconsin specifically or the Midwest as a whole as anything other than beautiful is to ignore the extraordinary power of the land. The lushness of the grass and trees in August, the roll of the hills (far less of the Midwest is flat than outsiders seem to imagine), that rich smell of soil, the evening sunlight over a field of wheat, or the crickets chirping at dusk on a residential street: All of it, it has always made me feel at peace. There is room to breathe, there is a realness of place. The seasons are extreme, but they pass and return, pass and return, and the world seems far steadier than it does from the vantage point of a coastal city...But the Midwest: It is quietly lovely, not preening with the need to have its attributes remarked on. It is the place I am calmest and most myself."

    It's from American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld.

  166. "Is it better I'm dead and I haven't done all the things that I want, or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do?" (apparently my 15-year-old self misheard those lyrics and the real words are somewhat more depressing, so I'm sticking to the way I thought I heard them)

  167. It IS a smashing good time and you will have a lot of new followers before next year. 90 squares of fleece would be just perfect. I have been saving fleece squares and this giveway could be added to my scappy collection for a new quilt for my grand nephew. How cool is that? Won't get it done until next year, but it's ok.

    Thank you and Happy Holidays

  179. Joan of Arc said this as she was dying at the stake, "Every man gives his life for what he believes, and every woman gives her life for what she believes. Some people believe in little or nothing, and yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have; we live it and its gone. But to live without belief is more terrible than dying, even more terrible than dying young."

  180. Thoreau reportedly answered his aunt, who was worried about his soul after death with "One world at a time," shortly before he died. I love that idea.

  191. I don't know if this is my favorite quote but it's one that I read recently and it struck me:

    "There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic." Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale
