Quilting Blog Hop & Other Little Tidbits of Information

 
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!"

 Whether it is the setting in of the cold for winter, or the" hustling and bustling" of
getting ready for Christmas, it is definitely "Sewing Season."
I have officially declared it here at my house. 
If you haven't had a chance to look at our Quilting Snow Ladies, hop on over to our website and take a look at these 12 beauties. They are available as Hand Embroidery patterns and also as Machine Embroidery.These gals are so much fun each one features a quilt and and an "edgy little saying."
These are fun to work on when the snow is blowing and you feel like sewing!
So is everybody ready for Christmas or do you have some time to do a Blog Hop before Christmas?
I think a little hopping would be good for the soul and would definitely warm us up
with the weather being as cold as it is.
Staring December 10th the Quilting Gallery is sponsoring a Blog Hop, which we are a part of. Along with all the hopping, each Quilting Blog Owner will be giving something away. 
We are giving away a $50.00 Gift Certificate at Chickadee Hollow Designs. You can pick out your own prize by searching our site and selecting $50.00 worth of merchandise


 

There are over 150 Blogs that will be a part of this Giveaway!
Winners will be chosen randomly so if you want to get our attention, leave us a nice comment on our blogs!!

While you are checking out our websites, take note of the following new items:
*Jingle Socks
great little stockings made to hold a Gift Card for that special someone.
*Buttons!
Some, new and expanded line.
Lots and lots of Christmas Patterns for Runners, Table Centers, Table Charms!!
Just go and check it all out!.






 Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Happy Stitching! Carol
