Giveaway Day!!!!!

Thanks to the ladies at Sew, Mama, Sew for organizing this whole Giveaway Day!

Sorry the picture isn't better. It's dark outside when I leave home to go to work and it's dark when I get home and to tell the truth I just decided when I got home tonight exactly what I was going to giveaway.


I'm giving away a half yard of the black fabric with the red, yellow and pink flowers on it and a fat quarter of the green fabric. The green is actually more of a lime green than it shows in the picture. The black fabric has been previously washed and dried in the dryer. The green fabric quarter has not been laundered. I wanted to throw some buttons in that went with the fabrics, so I sorted through my button collection. There is 1 red button and two yellow buttons to go with the black fabric. To go with the green fabric I found a cute blue flower button, a green heart, and 3 other blue buttons (2 small buttons and 1 larger one). I'm also giving away a little box of bobbins - there are 12 in the box. I'm also throwing in a little handmade something. I haven't decided what it is yet - so it will be a surprise.

This giveaway is open until December 6 at 9 pm eastern. I will randomly pick a winner shortly after. To enter, please leave a comment telling me your favourite thing about the holiday season. It could be a favourite recipe (please share - I like to try out new recipes), an activity etc. Please ensure you leave an email address so I can email you if you win. Any anonymous comments without an email address will not be entered. The winner will have until December 9th at 9 pm eastern to claim their prize. If the prize is unclaimed I will announce another winner. Good luck! And go check out the other giveaways at the Sew, Mama, Sew blog!

Edited to add - This Giveaway is open to international entries as well.

Hello, My favorite about this holiday season is making cookies with my daughter. One of our favorite recipes is a simple chocolate cookie we only make in December.
1 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
5 T butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
1 large egg
preheat oven to 325. Sift dry ingredients. Beat butter and sugar, add egg beating well. Slowly add dry ingredients and beat until incorporated . Flatten dough and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Freeze until firm. Using a 2 inch cookie cutter cut out cookies and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes.

emtdlb said...

I love my mother-in-laws cheeseball. I can't make it because she always changes the recipe. It is a kitchen sink recipe, whatever she has on hand gets put in, so it never tastes the same. But after 19 years, I love it and it only comes out at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanks for the chance!!!!

Evelyn said...

My favorite thing is drinking coffee in the early morning, looking at the christmas lights shining in through the windows. Silly, but I love it. :-)

Julie in WA said...

I love the chocolate covered cherries (dark chocolate, please!) that are available during the holiday season. And oh, in Canada I love the kidney-bean shaped chocolates filled with rum (my MIL calls them "rum bonen"). Unfortunately these chocolates were not in the stores yet last weekend when we were in Canada, so I must suffer without this year!

Sue Cahill said...

My favorite thing is hanging the Chritmas stocking my Mom made for me when I was little. It is knit, a Santa's face wit the beard and mustache knit of Angora yarn. There is still a chocolate stain in the toe from 1964!

My Mom knit unique stocking for everyone in the family. I took over when she could knit anymore, I have 4 kids and 9 grandkids so I have been busy.

V Colbourne said...

Fantastic giveaway!! My favorite thing about the season is seeing my parents and my brother. My parents have been divorced for 9 years now, and Christmas for the first few years was very hard and I didn't enjoy it. Now that everything has worked itself out, I just love it. I always decorate for my Dad, I spend Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with him and my brother. Then I go to my moms house after lunch and spend the rest of the day with her and her new hubby! It's a blast, FINALLY!

Emily said...

Lovely, thank you! I love going to the zoo after Christmas to check out their light show with my family - fave holiday tradition!

sfer said...

I love going to my mom's on New Year's Day and find my parents dancing waltzes in the living room to the sound of the New Year's Day concert in Vienna, which we watch every year, playing on the TV AND the stereo (for better sound).

The fabrics look great. Thanks for such a generous offer, and cheers from Barcelona :-)

My fave part of the holiday season this year is my daughters' excitement. The 4-year-old is super-excited about Santa, and my 2-year-old just can't get over the directions, yelling "kismas!" at every opportunity.

arlette said...

My fave part of the holiday season's the food!!!!!!!!, we eat tamales here (they're made from corn flour, vegetables, meat, rice, etc) you cover it with plaintain leaves and then you cook it, for a little while (2 hours or so), we also eat queque de navidad (christmas cake), the cake is full on raisins, dehidrated fruit, with rum, I can give you a piece if you pick me, lol!, well it's worth it! (I'm not blackmailing you)
