|Falling for Stripes|
Laura from Quokka Quilts and I started TGIFF! (Thank Goodness it's Finished, Friday!) a couple of months ago. It's a touring linky party for quilty finishes. We're having a blast -- and getting more projects finished to boot! I'm hosting this week and the wonderful and cheeky Lucy from Charm About You is hosting next week. If you have a finish in any given week, you are more than welcome to join in on the fun! You can also host if you like too. Check out the TGIFF! site for more details.
Another thing I do is travel the quilting blogosphere. I haven't done it in a couple of months because my computer is soooo slow, but we recently got a new computer and I'm feeling the travel bug again. I've got a few ideas for making these more visual trips for readers too.
Now to the giveaways!
There are two giveaways, one for the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party and Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day and your comments will count for both!
Giveaway #1: A charm pack of 48 6" I spy squares. I use these packs to make my Wee Spy Quilts. With a 3" border, these squares make a 39" by 48" top. There are a variety of colours and novelty fabrics that attract wee ones' eyes. No two squares are alike. The best part? This top is so scrappy that you can use any colour or fabric as the border and backing and it works.
Giveaway #2: This Makower UK Make It Yourself Advent Calendar panel. I've made five of these Makower UK's Advent Calendars and I have to say that they are very easy and fast to do. The directions (provided on the panel) are clear and concise.
So how can you win? This is open to everyone and you have a few chances to win:
1) Leave a comment on your favourite travel destination or which country (or province or state) you think I should visit virtually next.
2) Leave a comment letting me know that you are a follower or have become a new follower of my blog.
3) Leave a comment letting me know that you are a TGIFF! follower or have become a TGIFF! follower.
Remember, your entry(ies) will count for both giveaways. [Edited: I almost forgot! The charm pack giveaway will be open until December 17th at 5 p.m. and the advent calendar will be open until December 16th at 5 p.m. Both giveaways will be determined by random number generator.]
Thanks for visiting and good luck!
Cheers and happy blog travels,
