HAPPY NEW YEAR GIVEAWAY

First ... I won fabric!!! Always a good thing.

Did you participate in the Holly Jolly Bingo?  I never got BINGO but I did get some really pretty pastel batiks.  Great way to start off 2011.


And for you ...

Hopefully another great way to start 2011.  A GIVEAWAY!!!  Just leave a comment.  That's it - just a comment on this post.  If you want to be friendly ... tell me something you got for Christmas.  I'll do the drawing on Monday, January 10.  I know you could really use a new pair of Gingher scissors!

Good Luck!

Oh boy, could I ever use a new pair of good scissors. My sweet hubby gave me a beautiful fountain for our backyard. And my sons know the right size and color with gift cards to JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. Hope you are on the way to a Happy New Year :-)

Gingher scissors! Oh Yeah! I lost my beloved pair in my move to Florida a couple of year ago and haven't been able to replace them. I would LOVE to win this prize. You are so generous! Thanks or the chance.

I won't say how much I would love a large pair of good scissors, lol.
I have one small pair that still cuts nicely, would love to be entered.

I don't own a pair of Gingher's, but I remember when mom did.
I asked the kids for a common iron for my quilt room..nothing fancy or pricey and I got the one I was actually eyeing because of it's color, so I am very pleased.

Donna Turner said...

Hi, Mary. Don't enter me in the giveaway -- remember--I bought the same scissors at the same time you did, so I already have some. But my favorite gift was the Keurig individual coffee maker my kids gave me. What a treat to have whatever flavor/decaf/whatever without having to have two pots going anymore!

Marcia W. said...

You are oh so correct that I could use a good pair of scissors. I received only one present for Christmas - a Fiskars strip cutter thingy. I have it set on the dining table so can test it out. The fabrics you won are lovely. Happy New Year.

Linda said...

Gorgeous scissors!! Lots of lovely gifts for Christmas but my favourite was having all the family here for Christmas dinner :)

Vesuviusmama said...

I could definitely use some nice scissors. All my scissors look alike, and I can never remember which are for fabric, which are for paper, etc. And for Christmas, I got everything I asked for - a bread machine, slippers, cowgirl snap front shirts, good music, good reads, and an awesome knitted hat from my twin sister!

Mommarock said...

Wow a good idea for a giveaway - who can't use a new scissors??? Thanks. I like your blog - keep up the good work!

Needled Mom said...

Don't you feel as though you won at Bingo just by winning one of those great prizes?

Ginghers are the best scissors and I love the pattern on the handles.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Love the "American" scissors! I got a lot of gift cards, but my treasured gift was from my grandson - 2 lovely bundles of fabrics that he picked out himself - he's 3 (loves to push the pedal to make NaNa's machine go fast).

robin said...

New scissors - I could use some - I hate it when mine wander off and get used to cut PAPER! Hmmm - maybe I should chain them to the table?

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh my goodness, I have drooled over those scissors in quilt and fabric shops for months, LOL. Thanks so much for a chance to have that beautiful pair. As for something I got for Christmas, well, in spite of the fact I had no decorations as we are in the midst of a minor face lift on the home we have lived in for over 32 years now and in a total mess...my daughter and two oldest grandsons converged on the house and stayed for hours, exchanging gifts, playing games and just laughing until we were crying. I think that is will forever remain one of my favorite Christmas celebrations because it was completely unplanned and totally unexpected. So that was what I got for Christmas...wonderful memories! Thanks again for the giveaway and I wanted to say to that your pastel batiks are absolutely gorgeous I can't wait to see what you make with them! Good Luck to Everyone!

Laurie in Maine said...

I got a sewing room makeover! (I need to work on how loud I mutter under my breath at husband...he heard me several times in the month it took ;)
ALSO...Santa (or an elf) FIXED my machine! It was sounding awful so I made an appointment with repair man Jan 15. He said it sounds like it needs to be oiled... so I did. Made it worse.
Oil sank in overnight and Christmas morning it was the quietest it has EVER been!

Karen G. said...

Hi Mary. Glad you are back on the blog. I missed you while you were away. Hope you enjoyed your holidays! I love the t-shirt quilt for your husband. I'm sure he loved it. I have never owned a pair of gingher scissors so I don't quite understand the excitement but I'll join in anyway!! LOL My sister made me an adorable yo-yo Christmas tree. I have never seen anything like it. Gotta get the pattern from her. Well Happy 2011! Hope to hook up with you soon. Take care.

Miss Preston said...
