St. Patrick's Blog Hop Give-Away



I am happy to be participating  in my second blog hop hosted by The Quilting Gallery.  I look forward to hopping around all the blogs, great fun! This bog hop runs from March 17 until March 23.  My dad is Irish, so we always liked St. Patrick's day.  Our church always hosts a St. Patrick's Day Tea, it is fantastic!  Along with the tea, little sandwiches and lots and lots of sweets, there are hand-crafted items for sale.  One of my favorite things is a large tin of home-made fudge, my favorite!  You buy tickets on it, and no, I have never won it!  Probably just as well, I do not need to eat a tin of fudge, but it would be great!  Just in case you were wondering, it is on Sunday, so you can have these things even if you gave them up for lent.
My give-away is 2 of my patterns, The Jessica Bag and Easy Peasy Quilt, I just posted about one of my students' Easy Peasy.  It is a beautiful purple one, love it!  The other is a hand-made pottery mug that David Eastwood of Gagetown made.  The mug has my logo on it, last time Daivid made mugs for me I had them done in lime green and purple, I am getting ready to order more,what colours do you think I should order?  I have a post about David's studio on my blog as well.
To enter, just leave a comment, and if you join my blog or fanpage I will put your name in the draw twice.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  46. Ooh Super cute patterns. And that mug? OH YES PLEASE!? I LOVE cats. I was just at PetSmart today and SOOOOO MUCH wanted to bring one home they had for sale. It was a super loving kitty. You could just tell she would have been a fabulous cat to have. Each time I touched the glass she stretched her neck and pushed up against it with her face and then slide her face and neck across the area my had was. My husband came out of an aisle over from where I was and she saw him and the minute he got nearby she again pushed against the glass trying to get his attention too. I just don't think my Ragdoll (totally spoiled Ragdoll) would be too pleased with us.

    Anyway, I LOVE your mug because of the cats but my favorite color is purple. Don't you think that mug is just meant for me? :)

    Next color I will say should be purple too but, for a change I will tell you just this week I saw on a blog there were quite a few talking about how hard it is to find a red mug with white dots. Sooooooooo evidentially that might be a good 'color' if you can do other than a solid one.

    Thank you for the great giveaway.
