Blog Hop Party...Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED NOW
WINNER ANNOUNCED SUNDAY 18 (SYDNEY TIME)
THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO ENTERED.
Blog Hop Party
blog hop party
Just what you've been waiting for.
The GIVEAWAY announcement
I'm joining in with the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party. There are about 155  edited to over 250 now! sbloggers who are all putting giveaways up on their blogs - just for the heck of it...'tis the season and all that!

I've chosen to go with a CHRISTMAS THEME
and here is what you can win...

In this little package there are two very yummy half yard pieces of Christmas fabric...

... and this pattern for a wall hanging...

What do you have to do?

1) Leave one comment only telling me which New Year's Resolution you kept this year? If you didn't keep one, which one do you'd wish you kept?

 One of my New Years Resolutions for 2011 was to change my needle for every new project I started...a very practical resolution and one that should have been very easy to keep...I just didn't count on needing new needles at odd hours of the night... The verdict  - I mostly did manage to stick to that resolution...and there were no guilt trips if I didn't do it straightaway...I think I've got this resolution business all sussed out! I'm looking forward to reading your stories!

2) Open to International bloggers.
3) That's it...no hoops...
Comments close on December 17, 6.00PM EDT( ie Australian Eastern Daylight Time)


thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

This post will be up earlier than some of the Northern Hemisphere blogger, so check the Quilting Gallery Blog link from December 10 onwards to enter other bloggers' giveaways.

  2. Oooh I could really use some Christmas fabric! I don't really make New Year's Resolutions, but, to be totally cliche, my resolution for next year is to get fit! (I've already started).

    ReplyDelete
  3. My resolution was to empty at least one of my fabric bins and I doubled that, thanks.lu

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh dear! I can't even remember if I had any at all! let alone keeping one... I'd make one for next year: try to dedicate a bit of time to do some college work...

    ReplyDelete
  5. That fabric is gorgeous hope it finds a home in France! I don't make resolutions now, at my age I have come to realise it's a total waste of time because I never keep them, because most of the time I forget what I was going to do!!! x

    ReplyDelete
  6. I had 3 New Year's Resolutions last year. Be a better mother, be a better wife and take better care of myself. I will probably make the same resolutions this year! they are good ones to remind me everyday!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I never make a promise I can't keep so no New Year Resolutions. Love the fabric and pattern Thanks for doing a Give Away.

  11. I dont make New Years Resolutions either, because I know I wont do it. Lovely fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  12. That's a lovely prize, fingers crossed! I did hope this year to finish a few more projects & now that I am a blogger have done so. I am so proud of my SAL quilt brightly displayed for Christmas. This years resolution (as well as finishing some of the UFO's again) is to become confident with free motion quilting on my Janome. Not leaving that one to chance, signed up with a group on Facebook & an online course. Tracee xx

  13. Oh my what scrumptious looking fabric. Hold on I just ahppen to have space for it on my shelf. (LOL) I resolved to organize my stash by colour. Did I keep it? sort of...Started out the year just fine, but it got disorganized the more projects I worked on. Now I get to start all over again and Ooooo fondle my fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I never make any because I know I won't keep them! instead I set myself more manageable targets for the month!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I wanted to lose a further 3 stone, I lost 4 in 2010, but alas I put on 6lbs :) always 2012 eh

    ReplyDelete
  16. Loving the prize, gorgeous!

    I resolved to become a better quilter and constantly challenge myself to push my own boundaries, and that I really think I managed to do! =D

    ReplyDelete
  17. This was my first year quilting and I wanted to make at least one quilt for each month of the year; I did it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I had to dig back to my 2010 post for 2011. Basically, I kept my blog going as best as I could and I think I've improved in the sharing my writings.

    I've failed in the area of making breads even though we've made some. I would like to get to the point where we have homemade bread for lunch ALL the time. :-)

    I think I've gotten more "craftier" than the year before and I would like to continue doing this! It's my goal to live in the sewing/craft room. Ha!

    Thank you for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

  19. My resolution is the work through my UFOs-I am organizing a swap to get the job done! :-)

  37. I totally intended to stay in shape, which I did for the first few months of the year, but it has totally slipped away since the summer. I'm trying again now - getting out walking every day. Thanks for a chance to win your lovely prize.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My resolution was to lose more weight before my wedding in April, which I did. Sadly, I've been lazy since the wedding and have put most of it back on. *sigh* So now I have to start all over again!

    Perhaps I should make a resolution like yours (re: needles) and perhaps regular machine servicing, too.

    ReplyDelete

  60. Thank you for the chance to win!! :)
    The resolution I kept was not spending time worrying about things and situations I cannot change and changing things where and when I can. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. One of my new year's resolutions was to put away all the leftover fabric and supplies after each project was done. I guess I did it about half the time. But there is a new year coming up!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I didn't make an actual new years resolution but when I moved and finally had room for my sewing machine I made a goal to work on reducing my stash of ufo's. I've been doing amazingly well. I'm starting to have to dig through boxes to find the remaining ones.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I can't remember my new years' resolution...although I think it was to finish projects not start them and not to buy any fabric...I didn't make it very long. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I had made a resolution to finish some UFOs but it did not happen. Start more things instead. lol
    Merry Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My resolution was to declutter, and I have been doing it, although it is a WIP. St Vinnies is getting to know us very well!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  66. I always love to make a list of things I'd like to accomplish each year, but I've quit calling them resolutions. LOL If I do, they won't get done. BUT, on my list was to try and finish up some long time UFO quilts. I did! So I was able to mark a few things off my list.

    Thank you for the chance. This is YUMMY fabric. I'm all about Christmas fabric. Oh yeah... ;0)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Well, maybe I shouldn't say this out loud but I don't make New Year's Resolutions anymore. But, I do make resolutions and one that I didn't keep was to ONLY work on UFOs.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My new years resolution was to lose weight (boring right!) or at least not put anymore on.
    Last week I managed to fit into a dress that is 15 years old. YEAH Me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I was all hopeful of finishing my thesis. Oh well. But life has been very good otherwise, and I have learned to quilt! Which I'm counting as a bonus resolution.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't think I have ever made a new year's resolution. I wouldn't keep them anyway for very long.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What nice Christmas fabric, it is especially nice since I did not buy any Christmas fabric for myself this year. I have given up on New Years Resolutions I could never keep them and then felt awful about it. So I guess it would be my resolution to not make any New Years Resolutions.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Gorgeous fabric and pattern. I don't make New Year's Resolutions. Thanks for this opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I don't make New Year's resolutions cause I have a habit of not following through..but I do want to finish at least 4 UFO's by July 2012..lol..I love your fabric choice and pattern ..wow.. thank you for giving me a chance to enter your giveaway..happy stitching

    ReplyDelete
  74. I don't make New Year's resolution anymore because I can never keep them. If I actually did make one last year, I wouldn't remember what it was by now anyhow. Love your Christmas fabric.

  75. Gorgeous fabric. My New Year's Resolution was to participate in a UFO Challenge. I got most of the UFO's I had on my list in to quilt tops and some finished. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Thanks for the giveaway! It looks lovely. I think the resolution I wish I would have kept was to keep my weight down!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Didn't keep any didn't make any. NO guilt that way. Won't make any this year either.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Resolutions? Hmmm well I did go through a lot of stuff and reorganize things in the basement. I would love to win Christmas fabric!

  83. thanks for the giveaway they fabulous love sewing

    ReplyDelete
  84. I don't typically make a New Years resolution since I don't usually stick with it. But I did vow at a quilt retreat that I would work on getting some UFO's done and I've managed to get a few done this year! Thank you for the lovely give-away. Happy quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  85. My New Year's resolution was to really live each day with appreciation. Didn't quite stick to it but I tried. Next year I'm going to try to only buy fabric I need for a specific project that I am working on. No impulse buying allowed.

    ReplyDelete
  86. my new year's resolution is to just be more aware of how I spend my time. I really want to focus on the things I want to do and not have so many time wasters

    ReplyDelete
  87. I don't even bother to make them anymore, but I didn't start as many new projects and have worked on some oldies.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Merry Christmas.....I don't make resolutions because I never seem to keep them for very long...lol

    ReplyDelete
  89. Didn't keep the whole exercising one...

    ReplyDelete
  90. I resolved to start sewing again - and I have!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I don't do resolutions anymore because I felt like a failure when I didn't keep them.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I resolved to use up all the "tail ends" of lotions and creams. I was fairly successful I probably finished up about 1/3 of them.

    ReplyDelete
  93. The only one I kept was the one to get back into quilting and to make myself an area to sew in.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hello! Thanks for a great giveaway! I'm a new follower! I've given up on New Year's resolutions all together. I never seemed to keep them. Happy Holidays! :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. After many years of fruitless attempts at completing a New Year's Resolution, this year I was successful. I lost 20 pounds and continue to go to the gym at least 4 days a week. Cuts into my quilting, though, a little!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I had a resolution to finish as many of my unfinished quilts as I could. I got around 8 done. Yea!! Thabnks for sharing. I love the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I don't usually ame any but I did :resolve" to try and tame the fabric stash and start cleaning out closets - and I did bothe so that I guess you could say was a "resolution" I kept!. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  98. My resolution was to finish some of my UFO's. I finished 6 or 7 of them:)

    ReplyDelete
  99. My resolution was to snip any threads straight away and not after I had finished the quilt top! Did It!! Thanks for the chance, Dianne

    ReplyDelete
  100. Well, I kept one of my New Years Resolutions from this year - to cut back on caffeine. As for the weight loss, there's always 2012! Thanks for the giveaway, the Christmas fabric is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Lovely fabrics! Ah and then that thing about the New Years Resolution....Yep I make em every year. And I'm good about it until spring hits and then that fresh air makes me go crazy!! I can't even remember what they were now :( But man they were good I'm sure.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Love that pattern!!! And the fabric, too!!! :-) I had intended, and resolved to eat better (I'm type 2 Diabetic)... but it didn't happen... but I *have* started trying to do better over the last month, so maybe there's hope after all... Thank you for the chance to win! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  103. The fabric is so pretty! Resolutions? From last year?? I don't remember if i made any. Except for finishing a few UFOs, which I did. I guess I need to do better for 2012. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  104. love this fabric, just gorgeous - my new year's resolution for this year is to catch up on all my UFO's - I can try right!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Didn't make a resolution, but did choose a word for the year: Patience. Will need much more patience, I am sure, to get through the coming year!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Not only did I break it, I gained more. I'll try again next year.
    Happy Holidays

    ReplyDelete
  107. Sadly I didn't keep the "Lose the baby weight, willya - the kids are 21 and 22!" resolution, but I did keep the "Don't smoke!" one (8 years now) :D

    ReplyDelete
  108. Pretty fabric. I guess it was to lose wight again:) No I didn't.

    ReplyDelete
  109. My resolution was to finish half of my WIPs/UFOs this last year and I did it. Of course I also ended up adding to the pile over the course of the year but overall the partly finished pile has shrunk. My goal for 2012 is to learn to FMQ! Thanks for the lovely giveaway. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  110. I completed at least 9 of my UFO quilts and made from scratch 8 quilts. My mostly red, white and blue baby quilt(ufo) took 5 yrs to complete very densely hand quilted. It won a blue ribbon at the fair this year. My Safehaven thimbleberries quilt was on that I started and completed this year. So I was able to keep my resolution of finishing ufo quilts actually only 2 were on my list and completing some new projects. Woo Hoo

    ReplyDelete
  111. I didn't keep mine and plan on trying again this coming year. I want to be more relaxed and balanced in my life and take time for myself to regroup every day.

    ReplyDelete
  112. That Christmas fabric is so beautiful. I would love to win it. Thank you for the chance. My New Year'S Resolution was to lose some weight, but for some reason, that just didn't happen. Wonder why? Joyce--ccarter13@windstream.net

    ReplyDelete
  113. My New Years Resolution is the same every year. To find one thing everyday to be Happy about.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I don't make resolutions as I always break them, but I did challange myself to make double the amount of charity quilts and I achieved that goal 23 this year

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love the fabric and the pattern! Very cute! Thank-you for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I love the fabrics and pattern...thanks for the chance! I didn't really make much of a resolution this year - that way I couldn't break it!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Beautiful fabrics! Hope I win.
    I dont' make new years resolutions....but did want to get healthier this year,,,spent a lot more time at drs/hospital than expected......but feel better now than I did last year at this time :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. What lovely fabrics! Thank you for the chance to win.

    My resolution was to be able to say no to other things and make more time for quilting. Its been hard but I have managed it.

    Next years resolution, do something about the extra weight Ive gained sitting behind a sewing machine instead of running around all the time!

    Merry Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  119. I have a resolution to work through a lot of my stash in the coming year.

  120. Personal resolution for this year was to drop pounds. Didn't do that, but I also didn't add any weight, so semi-good. On the sewing front I wasn't going to buy any new fabric for quilts, just use what I had. That lasted until March. Beautiful fabric you have.:) ~Nita

    ReplyDelete
  121. It's not actualy a resoluton...I deside every month what craft, work or privat things I will do at this time and I do it. It's fun an I enjoy every minute of what I'm doing! Thank you for this great giveaway and many greetings from Austria

    ReplyDelete
  122. My resolution was to start exercising, bought the exercise equipment and it is still in the box! Maybe for 2012 I can make a resolution to get it out of the box and use it :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Gee, I quit making them as the weight never seems to go down, chocolate tastes too good, I get half way through organizing and get distracted and we all do get another chance any time we wish to make a change for the better. My mid year resolutuion was to start walking with a neighbor. We are on our third month and have added another person join us. A friend and I try to meet once every two weeks to do nothing but sew. We've been doing that for about 4 months now. Mid year resolutions seem to have more traction.

    Thanks for the give away

    ReplyDelete
  124. I didn't make any resolutions. But, I did start quilting last month, which is something I've always wanted to do. I made one quilt (Baby) last month and am finishing one up now for the back of the couch.
    Thank you for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  126. To read 52 books this year....didn't make it as I am on #43 with 2 busy weeks to go

    ReplyDelete
  127. My resolution last year was to try to produce less garbage. Seems like paper and packaging keeps building up. This year's resolution will be to try to buy more American-made products. Love the fabrics and the pattern is perfect. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I wish I had kept the resolution to save more money, but I have a lot of fabric in the bank. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  129. I did not have a new years resolution, but wish I kept, working out 2-3 days a week for 20-30 minutes. I am doing that now so hope I keep doing it for the whole year of 2012.

  130. Hi, Happy Holiday to You and Yours, the one that I kept is to lose weight and yes I have a little at a time about 40 lbs so far.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Sorry but I don't make New Year's Resolutions...they just don't seem to work for me. I have challenged myself to make every other quilt from my stash in order to get my stash under control. My challenge started in late summer and so far so good. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  132. I have not made any resolutions cause they dont work for me. I did quit smoking 14 years ago. But I have yet to lose weight. Two major resolutions that people make, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  133. I decided to be a fabric diet and use mostly my stash...and I pretty much stuck to it! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Hello! What a fabulous idea! I love the fabrics, they would be great for some Christmas stockings!! My resolution thus year was to drink more tea, and I did! Hehe sounds funny I know but it was also about taking a couple of minutes each day to have some time out! Merry Christmas :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. Gorgeous fabrics, generous idea, you're a sweetheart!
    My resolution was no resolutions. Why upset the equilibium when my life is at the most contented and happiest I've ever been :~)

  138. I'm really bad at keeping resolutions, but I did keep my house cleaner than last years, which was done of my resolutions...just not as much as I hoped. -grin- Thanks for the giveaway!

  141. Thanks for the chance to win such lovely Christmas fabric. I don't make New Year resolutions but if I did I would choose to get more exercise and take better care of my physically aging body..

  142. I wish I would not put off what I have to do and attend to it promptly. Failing every year in this resolution.

  143. It's been such a long year that I can't even remember making a resolution. I hope that counts for the entry.

  144. I didn't make any resolutions last year, but I can tell you what my resolution will be this year: reduce the number of PIGS (projects in grocery sacks.) I don't do the UFOs, at all. If I start it, I finish it. If I hate the project and don't intend to finish it, I canabalize the fabrics and get rid of it. This year, my resolution is, complete 2 PIGS before starting or buying a new project. I actually started this in September, and so far so good. I made up 3 pigs, and only did one new project.

  145. I don't make New Year Resolutions, I kind of think you set yourself up for failure. I do believe in setting goals, but that's a year long thing. Thanks.

  146. I didn't make any New Year's Resolutions because we moved this year and I knew that would be stressful enough (I was right!). We did it and are getting settled... finally! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  147. I didn't keep the watching what I ate more this year. :( Oh, there's another New Year coming up soon! Here we go again. Lovely fabric..Kd

  150. My resolution was to visit my mom more often and enjoy our time together. Yes I did keep this resolution. I love the idea of visiting Australia but since your blog is international, this is the closest I will ever get. Love your kangeroos and bears. I have heard of the saying, The Dingo ate your baby, but I hope that is not true for anyone. I would enjoy making the cute Christmas Wall Hanging with the Christmas Fabric. It has been a pleasure to take a peak over the fence and I'm sure there will be a lot of international quilters coming your way. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

  151. I don't usually make New Years resolutions, but I did keep a promise not to drink any pop or cola drinks. It's been much better for my health.

  153. I stopped making resolutions years ago because I made great attempts at them, but always failed ( i.e. loose weight) in the long run.
    I hate being disappointed in myself.

  154. My resolution is to stay focused. I tend to start many projects and then don't quite finish them. 2012 will be a chance to change that.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I didn't make any... mainly because I never keep them! I did make myself a promise to continue to better myself as a wife and mother. I'm nowhere near perfect, but I'm always trying! :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  156. I wish I kept my healthy eating resolution :D
    Thanks for the chance!

  157. I want to lose some weight.
    Thanks for the generous giveaway and a chance to win!

  158. One resolution I kept (possibly the only one I kept) was to spend more consistent time sewing. I've been able to do that this year, and hope to continue next year :)

    ReplyDelete
  159. I didn't really make one -
    SO THAT - I could not break one
    But - I want next year to be the year of organization and clean house. I'll never stick to that one though.
    Life is just sooooo busy.
    Mabye I should say PRIORITY instead.
    Thank you for the chance to win :)
    I hope you and yours have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
    and
    remember the reason for the season.

  160. I always forget the ones I made by the end of the year...maybe my nre resolution will be to write them down...and leave them where I can find them again!

    ReplyDelete
  161. I tried really hard to use my stash this past year and check there first before heading to the quilt shop. Still spent too much, but am supporting a local small business!!!
    Next year, I will be focusing on all those UFOs collecting dust in my studio.
    P.S. Love the Christmas giveaway and pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  162. No, the one I remember, to get on top of my UFO's didn't really happen. No guilt either because at least I havent made new ones and i am learning new skills all the time to enable me to finish the older projects eventually. The important thing is we keep moving forward!

  163. New Years resolution was get more of my quilting projects finished. Well I didn't do very well. I still have lots to do. The Xmas fabric is lovely with that wallhanging. I love how people can pick fabric that looks great with the patterns. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Well... I kept my resolution to lose weight. In retrospect I should have made a resolution to keep that weight off!! Another year, another try!!

    Your christmas fabric is fabulous!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  165. Oh I love the Christmas fabric. I really don't think a I made a resolution last year because I knew I wouldn't manage to keep it. Why start a new year off knowing your headed for failure.
