Blog Hop Party Giveaway

>> Friday, December 9, 2011

 Welcome to the Party! I've been rather busy this month away from my blog, but still thought I could help celebrate the season by joining this giveaway hosted by Michelle at the Quilting Gallery.

There's still time to get a little making done this season.  
Here are a few ideas

Stocking - simply make and fill or just make!
This is a quick, big stocking to make. You can use the template and create any pattern. Use up some strips of leftover Christmas prints, solid charm squares, or even one big piece of fabric! You could add seasonal applique - stars, holly, mittens, etc. or maybe the recipients name or the year. 

Coasters - can you ever have too many?!?!

Placemat - this one with charms

I love placemats. I have more designs in mind, just have to make the time to get to them.
A great, simple project to use up seasonal charm packs. 
Here's another design

You can purchase this pattern here.

{or maybe you'd rather win it?!}

My Giveaway

I am giving away a copy of my pattern, Primitive JOY.
It includes full size templates and a tabletopper version of the wallhanging.

I'm also giving away one of my Pattern Bundles - Sew JOY Decor

The bundle includes the placemat pattern I already mentioned,
and the Fa La La Letter  applique.

I will be picking 3 winners.

My patterns are pdf - download only. 
You can live anywhere and I can send them to you right away!

Leave me a comment to be entered to win.
Tell me what you like to make for gifts
{you don't have to sew it! Maybe cookies?}

*****Please make sure I have a way to contact you 
- leave an email address in your comment if you're not sure. 
You can always check your blog profile before you start entering all of the giveaways.
In your User Profile you should have checked off

My giveaway is open until
noon EST Sat., Dec. 17th.

The Blog Party hop starts Dec. 10th

Remember to take time to enjoy the magic of this special season

With JOY,
Sarah Vee

It's not always easy to find something fairly quick to make for Christmas! This year I'm making table runners for my sisters!
Thanks for a great giveaway!

This year I made mug rugs, very time consuming. So I vote for homemade shortbread! Thanks for the giveaway.

Janet December 9, 2011 at 3:44 PM  

I like to sew presents, but they do take time. This year I am making a quilt for my grandson and an apron for my son-in-law. That should take me right up to Christmas.

Michele T December 9, 2011 at 9:35 PM  

Table toppers are my choice for gifts... they can be made quickly enough and I know they are appreciated.

Michell December 10, 2011 at 8:36 AM  

I have made a couple of table runners before, but i like making coaster as they are so fast to make

I enjoy making pumnpkin loaves of bread, chocolate chip cookies and fudge. I just make up plates and share everything. This way my family has something to look forward to on Christmas Day. What a wonderful giveway on your blog. The pattern is a darn cute one. Thank you so much for a chance to win. I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday.

Just yesterday I made fudge to give away. At first I thought that I'd over-bought the ingredients, but when I started making a list of recipients, I reached 24 without pausing for breath. Now there are 26 pans of fudge on my counter waiting to be delivered.

Love the patterns!! :0)

My favorite thing to make for neighbor gifts if my Sour Cream Pound Cake. I make it in loaf pans, so one cake recipe makes two large loafs or three small loafs. I made two today, and the house smells awesome.

Thank you for the chance! :0)
