Quilting Gallery’s Be Thankful Hop and Giveaway!

Did you hear about the Thank You Blog Hop Party?  Michelle from the Quilting Gallery is sponsoring it.  Bloggers are all getting together and having a big bunch of giveaways November 21st-26th.  You can go to each blog to sign up and win something.


I am guessing many of you are new to our blog so before I show you what we’re giving away, I thought I’d show you around.  To the right under the ads are our tutorials and free patterns.  Each Tuesday we host a “Try it on Tuesday” where we review quilt books and quilt related goodies often giving them away to our readers.  We’ve been busy with a foreclosure house we are remodeling and hoping to move into next year, farming and quilting.  We always have fresh new posts once or twice a day.  I hope you’ll keep coming back as we love share our time with you.  One of the easiest ways to keep up with us is via our Facebook page.

Kelli and I dug through the prize pile and found a great book from Martingale and Company, Country Threads Goes to Charm School by Connie and Mary from Country Threads.

It’s an awesome book.  The premise if to take one charm pack, add some yardage and you have just what you need to make a project.

Would anyone like to win??  I can sweeten the bunch just a bit by throwing in a little pack of 5″ squares to get you started on your first project.

Each day in November up to Thanksgiving I’ve been writing about something that I am thankful for….

Today I am thankful for our “new” house.  If you’d like a peak at it you can see it here.  We have gotten a few bids in and remodel may cost more than we expected leaving us having to scale back a bit.  I am still thankful though.  I am really ready to start a new chapter in our lives.  Last weekend we got a couple things that will make the remodel a bit easier.  It just makes me happy knowing the work we’re doing is ours and for us.

If you’d like a chance to win the goodies, leave a comment telling something you are grateful for.  We’ll pick a winner in a week or so or whenever I remember.

  1. I am thankful for my first grandchild who was born 6 November 2013, four weeks premature. She is healthy and most adorable. Looking forward to teaching her to quilt.

  2. I am thankful for the survival of Washington, IL residents after the tornado last Sunday, including my daughter & her husband & 4 children.

  3. LOVE that grateful sign…did you make it? What a great idea!

    I’m thankful for my family…they are a blessing to me. Thanks for a chance to win.

  4. I have so much to be thankful for — summing it up — the life that I live with my family and friends, in a country that is free —“one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all”!

  5. God has blessed us beyond measure this year, I am so thankful for my family (husband & boys), but also for our church family, and the blessing of a job that allows me to work from home while homeschooling my boys and finding time to quilt/sew/craft!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. I am so grateful for family that lives near and for a husband who is kind and generous, even though he doesn’t understand my passion for quilting and other crafts. Thanks, Jo! for being here every day to encourage us and to remind us to keep moving upward and onward.

  7. I am grateful for the little bits of time I find to do some sewing (even if I sew on the kitchen table and not in a studio – enjoy yours!). Thanks for the chance to win.

  8. I am grateful that I am able to have the hobby of quilting. It is not a cheap hobby, so it is nice to be able to do what I like!

  9. I understand the being thankful for your house.
    We moved from suburban Fort Worth, Tx to a very rural area of Missouri a couple
    years ago. I put my foot down and told my husband that if we were moving we were paying
    cash for our new house as I did not want a mortgage payment hanging over our head. We
    are so glad that I put my foot down about that!
    Now we own our own little slice of heaven free and clear.

  10. It’s so wonderful that you got your new house. Congratulations! My father build our home when I was young and did almost everything himself with us kids helping. I am grateful for all that my father taught me. He could do or make almost anything. My husband father was the same way. I miss them both. Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. I am very thankful that even though we are by no means well off, we do have everything that we need…steady jobs, a cozy house, our health, and a wonderful daughter. Oh…and of course our furry children!

Thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway. What a great book.

  17. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to see my son grow into an intelligent young man. He’s 14 now and has a wicked sence of humor, there was a time when the future was only a dream. I have my health, my wonderful family and life couldn’t be better. ;-> Toni Anne
