December is such a busy month what with Christmas and the end-of-the year. You may wonder if you can fit in another celebratory day but here is one you won’t want to miss – it is the Quilters Gallery’s fifth birthday on the 10 December 2012. This is one celebration that you only have to turn up for – no preparation on your part; no gifts to buy or wrap, no food to cook (with the exception of the odd cookie on your Patchsmith mug rug next to that warming cup of tea!), no money changing hands. Nope, this is one celebration where you arrive, enjoy yourself and hopefully leave with some lovely goodies and lots of hints and tints from an awesome collection of bloggers. It is the Quilters Gallery blog hop to mark their special day. Needless to say – not being one to miss out on a party - the Patchsmith is joining in.So settle down, tea and cookie at the ready (hopefully nestled on a Winter Birdhouse mug rug) and be prepared to jump in and out of blogs, picking up freebies and entering give-aways along the way.
If you check out the page links on the right-hand side you will find some free patterns, hints and tips. You will also get a taster of the clear diagrams that I use in my patterns – all of which can be found in my Craftsy shop priced at just $1.99 all the time, not just for this blog hop - so if you are too busy blog hopping now, pop by later to check them out.
Okay, okay - advert over – let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of why you are here ....the give-away.
In celebration of Quilters Gallery I am giving away a Patchsmith original mug-rug, handmade by the Patchsmith herself and sneaked out of her workshop (she is very guarded about her workroom – check out next week’s Seasonal Tour of Patchsmith Palace here at this blog, to find out more!) Along with this I am including four fat-quarters of quilters’ fabric and a small chocolate treat.
It doesn’t matter where you are in the world or which side of the pond (aka Atlantic ocean) you are on, this give-away is for you. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me what one thing you want for Christmas this year. Please make sure you include your email if it isn’t in your profile and remember - this give-away closes next Saturday, 15 December 2012.
That is it – simple. So leave a comment and then go and enjoy the rest of the blog hop. And don’t forget, you are cordially invited to come back next weekend to take a tour of Patchsmith Palace in all its seasonal glory.
Sew until then – happy hopping.
