After 20+ years...

Hubby finally gets his own quilt.

As he said "I have seen many quilts leave the house, but now I finally have my own". I hope it keeps him warm and snuggly on a cold night watching hockey.

Made from homespun cotton. Sewn similar to to 1600 quilts using jelly rolls.

Safe travels as you go visiting and merry making. 

May Santa be good to you too! 

Merry Christmas  my dear blogging friends and followers.

If you get a minute to relax I hope it is with needle and thread in a comfy chair!

Blog Hop Party Giveaway….

What a great time to have a giveaway.  Everyone is in a festive and giving mood so I thought I would join along.
We are celebrating The Quilting Gallery’s 4th anniversary…yahoo…..such a great resource for so many things like quilting blogs, quilting stores, patterns, contests, swaps.  Michele is always coming up with something new and exciting.  If you have never visited, it is a must.
There are over 250 participants from all over this world in this amazing blog hop party.  The links will be posted on Saturday, December 9th (midnight EST).  Click on this thumbnail and it will take you to the list of participants.

And now for my give away…….

I love snowmen and I hope you do to!   This little wall hanging or table topper (14” square) could be yours.
For two chances to win all you have to do is:

1) leave me a comment telling me about your favourite holiday cookie.  I recently surveyed my family to see what their favourite was and they all chose the same one.  (Figures it was the one I like to make the least!) They all had a different second favourite, so I guess I better get baking soon.

2) why don’t you become a follower?  I love hearing from fellow bloggers from all over the world, so be sure to tell me where you are from too. (leave a second comment telling me you are now a follower)

I look forward to hearing from you.   I also look forward to checking out all the other BLOG PARTY participants tomorrow.

I will announce the winner on December 17th. Good luck everyone
Until next time,
Happy Stitching,

p.s. if I hit 110 followers I will add a little something extra to the giveaway!!

Well after too many hours on the computer I think I have successfully made a 'page' on Facebook for Lala's Lovelys Quilting.
So if you are a Facebook user, try 'liking' my page...

I sure hope this works!  

p.s. I should have been sewing instead!
