A BIG GIVEAWAY

Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.
~Dave Barry

Is everyone going out shopping today?  I'm not.  I'm enjoying family, relaxing, and just enjoying the day.  I haven't gone shopping on Black Friday in many, many years.  I do most of my shopping online, away from the crowds and the noise.  Did everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving?  I DID!!  Ate too much but had a great time with family and friends around the table.  And the smoked turkey made by my DH was absolutely delicious!!  Thank you, honey!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PHOTO OF THE DAY


My Santa collection

Since it is now officially the Christmas season, it is time to bring out my Santa collection.  Do you know who Santa Claus is?  He is based on a real person, St. Nicholas.  St. Nicholas, or Sinter Klaas in Dutch, was a very shy man and wanted to give money to poor people without them knowing about it.  It is said, that one day, he climbed the roof of a house and dropped a purse of money down the chimney.  It landed in a stocking which a girl had put by the fire to dry!  This may explain the belief that Father Christmas comes down the chimney and places gifts in children's stockings.  When the Dutch introduced him to the Americans they called him Santa Claus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No sewing yesterday, or even Wednesday.  Too much preparation, too little time.  Did you check out my two new blogs?  If not, please do.  The are Block Swap Adventure and Let's Bee Together.  If you are looking for something to start after the first of the year, add these to your list!  We are still looking for new members.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GIVEAWAYS


The day has finally arrived for my next giveaway!  No special reason this time other than I found this when I was putting back all of my sewing crap mess.  Wouldn't you like to see?

Doesn't help much does it?

OK.  Let me tell you about it.  What I am giving away it the mostly complete set of Thimbleberries Quilt Club 2006 BOM Quilt Kit.  It appears that I am missing the fabric for the outside borders and maybe a little of the backing.  I did a google search for fabric from this collection and there are still some pieces available.

Here is what is included in this giveaway....
12 months of quilt blocks, fabric for sashing, binding, and most of the backing.  The backing is supposed to have a center piece with some blocks in it that I apparently never got (who knows why not). 


This shows each of the twelve months.
This is the sashing, binding, and some of the backing fabric (8 3/8 yards of fabric just in this grouping alone!)

This is a sampling of the fabrics in a few of the monthly squares.  Pretty, rich, fall colors.

This is a picture I found online of the finished quilt.  See the outer border fabric?  That is what is missing.  Perhaps you already have something that will work or you can find something online.

Anyway, that is my giveaway!  What do you think?  Worth waiting through my hints the last couple of days?  Even with the missing fabric, you have to admit that this is a pretty good haul.

Here's how to enter to win this Thimbleberries BOM from 2006...

1.  Leave a comment telling me what you favorite movie is. 

Mine?  I have three - Steel Magnolias, African Queen, and Twister.  Yes I know, Twister isn't much of a movie acting wise but for some reason it just keeps me glued to the screen every time I watch it.  And I can only watch Steel Magnolias if I want a good cry and nobody else is home.  Love Sally Fields!!  And for a classic you just can't beat Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn.

2.  Blog about this giveaway, then come back and leave another comment telling me you did with a link to your blog for that day.  (If you leave it with the first comment then it will only count as one - make sure this is a separate comment).  So now you have two chances to win.

3.  There will be an additional chance to enter next week, but you will have to wait until I post that.

You do not have to be a follower of my blog but I certainly would like it if you were!  This giveaway is open to everyone!  Make sure that I have some way to reach you!  If your name is drawn and I can't reach you,  you can't win.  So, if you have a no-reply blogger then leave me your email.

This giveaway will end Friday, December 10th at 9:00 pm PST.  The winner will be selected by random.org.

GOOD LUCK

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FINAL THOUGHT

As you head into the holiday season it is important to remember why we are actually celebrating, no matter what your religion.  It seems that commercialism has taken over everything.  Children do not understand the true meaning of any of the holidays except that it means they will probably receive gifts.  And I'm just as guilty as the next person in perpetuating this practice.  I lavish toys on my grandsons and buy too many gifts for other family members too.  Today I will stop and think about what Christmas means to me.  I will try to do this at least once a day until that special day arrives.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
~Burton Hillis

Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend!!

I have several favorite movies. If I'm in the mood for something Epic, it's Gone with the Wind. If I'm in the mood for a musical, I'd have to go with the 1986 version of Little Shop of Horrors. Best Christmas movie ever was Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas :)

We love the movie The Wedding Date, with Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. We have watched it many times and just really enjoy it. We have lots of other favorites but this is just a fun movie.

So, happy to hear you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. We spent the holiday with friends this year and everything was gluten free for our daughter and grandchildren and it was delicious and wonderful to be with family and friends.

I agree wholeheartedly over your last paragraph. The Christ seems to have gone from Christmas and this is more apparent in the West than anywhere else. In asia the religious aspect of Christmas is still very much there. This is very noticeable in Easter celebrations too.

Thank you for sharing your fabric with us! beautiful giveaway and please count me in.

I would absolutely love to win this. It would make the most beautiful quilt. My favorite movie was Wuthering Heights. It was so romantic, and I loved the moors and the scenery.

Becky said...

I don't need a new project, but the fabric in this one looks WONderful! We ate the last of the Thanksgiving left-overs at lunch. I do think we still have some Turkey Gumbo left. It was made with the left-over turkey and carcass. I did some online shopping on Friday. We took our decorations out of the basement. I've begun decorating, but it will probably take me most of the week to finish.

Oh, my favorite movie is "You've Got Mail." It has books, Christmas, friends, dogs and romance. My kind of movie:)

What a wonderful giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win. My favorite movie for any time of year is The Inlaws, the original one. The whole family enjoys it and I laugh every time even though I have seen it over and over. For a snow day, my favorite is White Christmas. We love to watch that one. I am a follower and enjoy your blog very much.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wow...a wonderful giveaway, so generous and in keeping with your thoughts of the real reason we are celebrating Christmas. Now in keeping with your thoughts...it has occured to me that I am now standing here with my hand out hoping to get fabric from you, hmmmm...I'll get back to that thought in a minute. I have become a follower of your blog, not for your giveaway but because I JUST found you!!! UGH...how did I miss your delightful blog for so long? Ah well, I found you now!!! I don't have a blog so I can't blog about your giveaway but you can be sure I will spread the word to my quilting friends and family.
Now, as for my favorite movie, well, I tried to narrow it down to three following your example, I have to include My Favorite Wife an old Cary Grant movie, Places in the Heart, with Sally Fields and this is one that I watch only when I'm alone and feel like a good cry and The Bucket List, Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. There are so many more, mostly old, many black and white but hey...what can I say, I love em! Okay, back to the having my hand out thought...I just set up my very first sewing room and my stash shelves are kind of bare but there is fabric there, I adore Thimbleberries too...but, if I win, I would like to give you the name of a friend (whom I met through blogging) who is a newer quilter than I am and lives in France and I will foot the postage cost if you will send it to her in my stead. Mainly cause I feel guilty stumbling in here and finding this fabulous giveaway and the Christmas thing and all. Anyway, you get the drift. So, I'll be back to see if I can get another chance...wishing "Good Luck Too Everyone".

Shasta said...

Wow, I like so many movies. Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings.

Samelia's Mum said...

Such a fabulous and generous giveaway. Now I'm not sure I can choose just 1 favourite movie, so I'll go with a couple and say "Pretty Woman" and "An Affair to Remember". I also really really like "Love Actually" and the way the story intertwines. Can you tell I like girly movies?

Samelia's Mum said...

OK so it won't let me edit so I'll make another comment my all time favourite movie is Sleepless in Seattle.
I blogged about it here http://suesplaceinthesun.blogspot.com

Sue said...

Having reread your instructions I am now making my second comment given that the first got deleted. Anyway while Sleepless in Seattle is my all time favourite, Notting Hill and Love Actually are a close second and third but then again I have enjoyed all 7 Harry Potter movies and Lord of the Rings I did all three movies in one sitting after the third DVD was released.

gill said...

Great giveaway!
My favourite film is The Great Escape!

Vesuviusmama said...

What an easy way to be eligible for that AWESOME haul! Let's see - my kneejerk answer is The Princess Bride. I love that movie. But there are so many that I do like. There's Something About Mary makes me laugh every time. Steel Magnolias is definitely good for a cry. The Shawshank Redemption is just a wonderful story, and it takes place in Maine (where I grew up) so that gives it extra points in my book. Actually, I feel that way about most movies in Maine - The Cider House Rules, The Spitfire Grill - once a Maniac, always a Maniac!

Canadian Kristin said...

Whoa, Nelly! GREAT giveaway!!! My favourite movie is The King and I with Yul Brenner! Awesome!!!

Quilt n Queen said...

Fabulous giveaway.....and my favorite movie would be Dirty Dancing. I've watched it many times but there are a lot of great movies I really like also.....Sound of Music......The Bridges of Madison County

Thanks for the chance to win....good luck everyone!

Mama24Monkeys said...

Wow...beautiful kit. I hope I am the lucky one to give it a new home.

Munaiba said...

My favourite movie is the Matrix. Great give away. I've never subscribed to a BOM kit. It looks intriguing.

vEr0n!c@ said...

My favourite movie is August Rush. I don't think it's a well known movie but if you love music, you'll definitely love it. It warms my heart every time I watch it. Thank you for having this wonderful Giveaway.

Carin said...

Beautiful give away !! My favorite movie still is The green mile. I just love that movie !!!

It's hard to pick out just one movie but I like Pride and Prejudice, the Greer Garson version and the Death of a Salesman, which you don't see much anymore.

Mary Lou Casada said...

What a great give-away, Linda! I have about a million favorite movies! But the all-time fave is Ben Hur with the fabulous Charlton Heston!! Christmas and Easter is a semi-annual comfort movie!
Blessings,
Mary Lou

Diane N said...

WOW...what an awesome giveaway! I don't really have a "favorite" movie. I like pretty much any chick flick!

Sandy said...

Wow, great giveaway! I love a lot of movies, but if I had to choose one, it would probably be The Shawshank Redemption.

krisgray said...

WOW = what a giveaway! My fave movie? That's a hard one. Let's see, right now Grease is in the rotation (nostalgia) but I guess the one I've watched so many times that I've lost track is Pride & Prejudice (A&E version w. Colin Firth).

I don't have a favorite, but I like the Harry Potter movies. I also love most of the movies based on Jane Austin books. They are a fanciful escape from my ordinary life, and are usually beautifully made.

Mary said...

Wow! what a great giveaway.

So many good movies, but this time of the year I'll go with It's a wonderful life - a classic.

Wendy said...

It is almost impossible to have ONE favorite movie. I am a sucker for the so-called chick flick. My mom and I just finished watching "Shall We Dance" with Jennifer Lopez & Richard Gere. Awesome! My favorite of the last year is "It's Complicated" with Meryl Streep, Alex Baldwin & Steve Martin...oh my! But I guess, the classic that started my love for movies is my all time favorite: "The Sound of Music"! Anyway, I've got a project in mind for your giveaway fabric. Fingers crossed!

Wendy said...

Hey Linda, I created a blog post about the bee and the swap. Hoping to get new members soon!

Kathleen said...

I just found your blog through Karen at Merry Little Quilter blog. What a fantastic giveaway... so generous. My favorite movie used to be The Sound of Music. But kids still groan about it as we only had one TV so if it was on that's what the family was watching. Now I think I'd have to say Murphy's Romance.

Amy said...

I just found your blog through quilty giveaway,this is gorgeous fabric! my favorite movie would have to be a disney...Aristocats! I know I am crazy but I love cats and Disney.Thank you for hosting this giveaway.Amy

Kylie said...

I grew up on Disney so Beauty and the Beast has a place in my heart, these days I don't have a movie but a TV series- Dr. Who. I love the classic black and white episodes from the 1960's just as much as the new series. Also I know what you mean about Twister, it's always entertaining. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

thought/found said...

Wow! What a really generous giveway!

I'm not sure I have a favourite movie, really. But there are a few classics from my youth that I never tire of watching (provided there's some space between viewings!): Dirty Dancing, The Princess Bride, Clueless...you get the picture. Not great films, but fun ones!

Pokey said...

Hi, Linda! A favorite movie of ours is Princess Bride. But I'm in for super hero flicks and action adventures, too!

This is such a generous giveaway that I had to let my readers know about it. Thanks Linda, for your generosity.

Just JaiCi's Crafts said...

My favorite movie of ALL time is Life is Beautiful (not in english) but one of my favorites to watch with my daughter is Roger and Hammerstein's Cinderella with Brandy and Bernadette Peters! It's so stinkin' funny and the music is awesome :)

VickiB said...

What a wonderful and generous giveaway! I'd have to say, in honor of the season, that my favorite movie is It's a Wonderful Life (but Wizard of Oz runs a close second)! Thanks to Gene for sending his readers your way -- can't wait to read through your blog.

Kathleen said...

My favorite is an oldie...I Want to Live with Susan Hayward....she was wonderful in that movie..so stunning...thanks for a great giveaway...

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Super giveaway! I love movies, picking which is my favorite is difficult. This time of year, White Christmas but Casablanca is probably my favorite favorite.

Hillbilly Handiworks said...

My favorite movie??

The Little Princess. I just love that ALL girls are princesses. Because it's true. We are!! I'll never grow too old for that movie. I recently gave my copy away to my good friend who's in her mid-60's and had never seen it. SHOCKING. I'm not talking the Heidi version either...the newer one. I need to go to Amazon and order myself another copy.

I need this BOM because I've never been able to do one before. It would awesome to win one!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Gosh, I don't think I have a favorite movie. The last movie I watched was one from the Twilight series with my DD and I liked it more than I thought I would. I 'inherited' some of the blocks for this BOM and the border fabric, but none of the other fabrics, so I'd love to win to make a complete quilt! Thanks so much for the chance!

simone said...

My all time favourite is definately The Sound Of Music. I only watch on television, no DVD or so for this movie. Only a few weeks ago I bought the original soundtrack in the thriftshop with a booklet with photographs, that made my day.

Kathleen said...

One I like to watch every so often is Anne of Green Gables. I always cry when Matthew dies. I'll have to check out some of the other movies mentioned; some are new to me.
Thimbleberries is such a classic in taste and style. I'd give it a good home.

Tracy said...

My favorite movie is O' Brother Where Art Thou. I absolutely LOVE that movie. I also really love the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I think it's crazy.
