Quilting Gallery Blog Hop with Give-Aways!

Blog Hop Party with Give-AwaysIt’s Thursday, November 21st and the Quilting Gallery Blog Hopping Party begins TODAY!  I’m super excited to once again be participating in this fun once again!

 

Next, before I get into what I’m giving away I wanted to tell you a bit about about what you can expect to read about on my blog if you decide to follow along (which I hope you do)!

Project QUILTING – a fun quilting challenge that gets posted every other week.  Season 5 will be starting at the beginning of January and it’s never too late to join in the fun!  To read more about what it is check out ‘What is Project QUILTING’?  There is currently an off season challenge happening now – Color MERCEDI and there’s still plenty of time to join in the challenge.  I have an idea for the challenge but plan to make it next week…hopefully!

Quilt Alongs – Last year I hosted my very first quilt along – Home Sweet Home followed by ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’.  I have a Quilt Along planned in my head so far for 2014…soon to be announced on my blog so stay tuned!

Block Tutorials – Whenever other bloggers are doing quilt along’s I’m always happy to create a block for them.  When this happens it is also shared on my blog with my readers/followers.

Random Project – I’m constantly making something!  I do my best to share with you what I’m working on, how it’s going, and things I’ve learned.  Recently I went on a ‘Jewelry Binge’ to get ready for the big annual sale I have at my orchard each year.  As I was tagging and pricing everything I was amazed at just how much I made!  Oh!  And I made my Television Debut just last week!  It seems like something crazy is always happening around here and usually more than one thing at a time…  (In fact…as I’m typing this I’m working on sewing on a fox tail AND watching my girls in gymnastics.)

CC&P 1013-146

My Family & Orchard – I have three beautiful little girls and an amazing husband.  I share stories about what’s going on with my family here because they are so influential in all that I do.  We also own and operate an apple orchard here in Poynette, WI.  I sometimes post about what’s going on at my orchard here but mostly you can find those updates on my blog, Lapacek’s Orchard.

Hearts for Susie – I have made it my goal to use my creativity to help raise awareness for Women’s Heart Health.  You can see what inspired me to do this and how you can support my cause HERE.

 

For this giveaway you will win a bundle of six hand-dyed fat quarters of these fun yellow to pink color family fabrics (I dyed myself…)!

How to Win!


REQUIRED:  Easy – Just leave me a comment answering this question:

Be sure to include your email address so I’m able to contact you when you win!  If I can’t contact you I will choose a different winner.

Sidenote:  I’m a HUGE fan of tradition.  I will willing drive four hours (2 hours each way) three times in one week - with three children - just so I don’t miss a tradition.  This year one of my most favorite holiday traditions has been cancelled and I’m super SUPER bummed.  After a few days of moping about I realized that the only way to make me feel better is to figure out a NEW tradition for Christmas that my children will always remember…so I need your help!

What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday Tradition?



 

BONUS Entries  Leave a separate comment for each to gain extra entries

The giveaway ends at the end of the day on Tuesday, November 26th.
Seriously – if you don’t leave your email address, I won’t be able to get ahold of you and you won’t get the prize…this is very important!

  36. Years ago my hub would take the kids 15 miles up the canyon to our very rustic cabin. They would sled, drink hot chocolate and eat chili and I would have peace and quiet to get ready for Christmas. Then I got organized enough to be ready the 23 and I started going with them. Now its quite the tradition and I love it. No hassle on Christmas Eve, everything is ready. Christmas is a 2 day celebration and we aren't all scrambling with last minutes have tos. Thanks.

  51. I am headed to a Christmas tradition this weekend. Since you have your own event this won't help you. There is a huge craft show at UW Parkside in Kenosha. In past years it was always the first weekend in December.
    Our family tradition when I was growing up included seeing the dept store Christmas windwos in Sheboygan WI right after Thanksgiving dinner and driving around to look at the lights after the children's service at church the week before Christmas. Now those window displays are at the museum in Green Bay.

  80. Project QUILTING looks like so much fun; I started following on Bloglovin to make sure I don't miss the start.

    As for traditions, this one is simple, but my sister and I love it. When we were little, my mom would give us matching Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve each year. We're wear them and be matching in pictures when we opened gifts. She tried to stop the tradition after we left college, but we begged her to start doing it again though we aren't always a fan of matching in the pictures anymore :-)

  86. We have used an Advent wreath for years. Each week, another candle is lit and the kids take turns by week reading a prayer. It is a nice way to keep the focus where it belongs around Christmas. My kids are young adults now and we continue with the tradition. What a special giveaway you have made.

  96. My family has a tradition of two gift exchanges (both voluntary) where one exchange is something you make yourself. The other one is like a white elephant exchange only we call it a garage sale gift exchange. The item you bring to the exchange must be something you would not be embarrassed about putting in a garage sale.

    For my husband and me, we collect toys and food for a family in need that we adopt through a local agency.

  97. I make a batch of cinnamon rolls on Christmas Eve, but I don't cook them. I get them all ready and rolled out, then pop them in the freezer over night. On Christmas morning I take them out and cook them while we are opening gifts. Then we eat them when we are done with the present fun. Thanks for a great giveaway. The fabric looks fabulous.

  141. The fabrics look beautiful! We are also coming up with new traditions. Both my kids are grown. My son is married with a three year old and my daughter is still at home going to college. When the kids were young we always opened our gifts Christmas morning, all of us in our pjs and then a cooked breakfast. It worked out as my husband's family always did their gifts on Christmas eve. Since our son is stationed with the USMC about seven hours away, we just have to adjust. I just love when we are all together.

  164. That's easy. Our Christmas tradition is a full breakfast before we open any presents. I'm talking bacon, sausage, ham, biscuits, grits, eggs, muffins... jam, jelly, honey, and white milk gravy...

  174. I love baking cookies with my 5 year old grandson, but he is now living in Hawaii, so I will have to make a substitute tradition. One year when my girls were little, it rained on the night we would normally go to the State Fair. Instead we went to the mall and made up substitute activities for the rides and games we missed. We rode the carousel, and ran backwards up the escalators, played hide and seek among the curtain displayed, found a !,"Pat the bunny" book for the petting zoo. The girls asked if we could do that next year instead of the fair!

  175. Love the idea of Project Quilting and I plan to follow along. I seriously doubt I can get any project done in such a short time frame but will enjoy watching from the sidelines.

    Unfortunately, I can't really help with a Christmas tradition as we don't celebrate Christmas. But, a cookie baking day/swap might work. That, of course, requires several friends to get together and one person to give up their kitchen for a day but I hear it is a hoot.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  180. Our Christmas tradition is to let the youngest start with opening one of his presents and he chooses a present for one of his siblings to open, who then chooses the next etc. It takes while but the children really enjoy this.
