Novembers Giveaway

Giant November Giveaway, you will want to share this one with your friends and there are going to be lots of prizes to giveaway and many ways to win.


First of all, a huge and heartfelt thank you to Linda Hazekamp, the owner of Abbi May's Fabric Shop who was the wonderful and generous supplier of a Moda (yes, I said Moda) Vintage Holiday collection that includes the following 5 fabrics:

1-Green Chianti 2-Lt. Green Holiday Angels 3-Green Vintage Holiday Border 4-Green Holiday Homestead and 5- Antique Holiday Border

Linda included generous amounts of each fabric, so this was very generous! and she wrapped it up in this beautiful red satin bow!

The second item up is this wonderful quilting book by Ondori, 80 pages of patchwork and quilting projects and for my readers that come from other parts of the world, the projects are done with metric measurements and they do have the American conversions with them.

If you are not a quilter, I am sure you know someone that is and this would make a great stocking stuffer for a family member or friend even a blogger friend that you feel very close to.

Third item is going to be a large mailing envelope of fabrics, some old and some new, but I am sure you will be able to find a great use for all you will receive, cottons and flannels!

Fourth item is another quilting book: Quilting Up A Storm by Lydia Quigley and it has 78 pages. I do not think this book has ever been used and it is really great for quilters looking for something special!


So, here you are thinking you aren't a quilter and feeling like maybe you should pass on this giveaway? Please don't, here are more items:


Number 5 is this wonderful Womens daily devotional: 'A WOMAN'S Garden of Faith, Hope & Love,' 365 daily devotions for women and I have enjoyed this book over the years and now it is time to pass it on. This book is in excellent brand new condition and would also make a great gift for someone you know!



Can you believe all these wonderful gifts? I am not done yet, there are still more to come...



How about this embroidery floss keeper for item six? It has never been opened and holds 60 floss bobbins on each page and is hole punched for a 3-ring binder!





Our last prize is this little purple gift bag and with it will be a little card of miniature Christmas decorations, so even if you win the last item of the giveaway, you still are receiving something special.

I will also be choosing a few random readers and followers to win unannounced prizes prior to the end of the giveaway, so as you can see, there are many items being given away.


Now for the rules for this fantastic giveaway:

1- Follow me and you receive 5 entries and if you are already a follower and let me know your following ID, you get 5 entries.
2-Go over to Abbi Mays, look around her shop and come back and leave me a post of what is your favorite thing about her shop, you will recieve 10 entries. If you purchase something from her shop and tell her you came via my blog, there is an extra 15 entries for you (so you can earn 25 entries).
3-Twitter about this and you receive 5 entries.
4-FaceBook and you receive 5 entries. Tell your readers to let me know they came via your blog and you recieve an extra 5 entries.
5-Blog about this and send me the link and you get 15 entries. If someone comes and tells me they came via your blog, you get an extra 10 entries.
6-Leave a comment on any new posts on this blog and you get one entry for each.

Giveaway is open to all bloggers and non-bloggers in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK ONLY!! Giveaway is open from today until November 15th at noon.

Oh man, what a fantastic giveaway, girl! I am a follower, and I am a facebooker, where I will be writing a note to myself right now, to put your website in a note there.. I have a friend on there thats a quilter.. I have to sit here and chuckle at Abbi Mays website.. I love all the fabrics of course, who doesnt like fabric? But what I found so enjoyable at 5 am here in my cold living room, without lights turned on, without my trusty glasses to see is the fact her site has made me laugh already this early in the morning as I read some of her stuff... Needle noodles was my favorite term she wrote - just those 2 words made me stop and laugh.. so cute...
You are going to have a link posted on my Threads of hope blog site as I write a blog about online friendship.. Give me an hour or so and you will be famous, lol! Thanks for the giveway offerings.. I have been blessed just by coming here, and then getting a chuckle so early in the morning.. I just loved the words Needle Noodles for some reason, lol.
