Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop Party w/Give-Aways

Beat the Winter Blues - Quilters' Blog Hop Party


Michelle at Quilting Gallery is organizing 
another Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways!
 
What a great way to beat those Winter Blues! 
For many of you it is snow, snow and more snow.
Here in Charlotte it is rain, rain and overcast days!
 I can't think of a better way of brightening up our days, can you?

For those who are new to my blog here are two of my recent finishes.
 Currently I am working on a baseball t-shirt quilt.





So Let's Party and Have Some Fun!

A few minor details before we begin:

  • Party begins Friday March 8 and ends March 15. 
  • The drawing will be March 16.  
  • Your gift will be in the mail by March 20. 
  • Random Generator will determine who the winner will be.
  • Don't forget to visit Quilting Gallery to see all the participants (203) in the Blog Hop Party. 

Now let's move on to more fun stuff!

  Grab a cupcake - in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day!
I'm Irish descent so I need to celebrate! Do a jig! Well I may shake it a bit!
Put on the Celtic Music!
Recipe at Loves to Eat.


 The Give-Away!

Your choice of one of these pretty Jelly Rolls.
Both are Fabric Palette Jellies from JoAnn Fabrics.  
Each roll contains twenty 2- 1/2x42 inch strips of high-quality 100% cotton fabric.

Aren't they pretty? 

Spring Prints


Spring Batik-Like


So what must you do?
(1) Follow me and in your comment tell me how you are following me.
(2 ) Leave a comment telling which jelly roll you prefer.

Second Chance - Not a Requirement
  Follow me on Pinterest and return to comment. 



Irish Blessings:
May those who love us, love us; and those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping.

May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart. May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you, and may God enfold you in the mantle of His love. 

Wishing you Luck and Blessings!
