Giving Thanks with a Giveaway!

My friend and fellow quilter, Kevin, donated a couple of his patterns for a giveaway!
 Thank you Kevin!



 One of these will be given away on my facebook page and one of them here on my blog. If you are part of both you get 2 chances to win! Leave a comment here and on my Facebook post with the pattern. (I'll post it first thing Friday morning on Facebook)
Our Thanksgiving day didn't quite go as planned because of a good dumping of snow. I did get out for a chilly walk with Elsa. The roads are a sheet of ice so I put on my spikes on over my boots. 

Haven't  seen Mr Stinky in awhile..
I only had a whole chicken to bake and we were laughing that he was "carving" the bird! 
I hope your day was wonderful and your weekend will be terrific as well!

Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win!

  1. A turkey, a chicken, how fun! As long as you were giving thanks for your blessings, right? My SIL is all by herself and she cooks up a Cornish hen every year for Thanksgiving. I say perfect! Thanks for the opportunity to win a pattern. I missed out on Kevin's Gracie Lu Rail Fence class with my guild due to travel plans. Would love to win it!

  2. I am so thankful that we dodged the bullet and only go a dusting of snow where we live, and only had to travel 8 miles to our daughter's home for smoked brisket, ham and ribs made by our s-i-l. Really nice gathering with 3 of our grands and s-i-l's family. Thank you to you for the chance to win one of Kevin's patterns that he so kindly donated (thank you Kevin) - they are both fun looking quilts! It is now time to turn on a podcast and sit down at the sewing machine!
    HUGS... and stitches

  3. Gracie Lu's Rail Fence is really pretty. Great time of the year, even if you don't have company!! Our families live too far to visit, but I am still thankful that they are healthy and doing what they love!!

  4. Our Thanksgiving meal was non-traditional as well since our bathroom is being remodeled. The house is not fit for many guests and I had no ambition for cooking a big bird, so we grilled out! Even though we had to walk through snow to get to the grill, it was all good. I really like Gracie's Rail Fence pattern as I could use up a pile (or two) of scraps!

  20. We will be getting that white stuff from your way into our N'east this weekend. I also had the 'mini' turkey (roast chicken) as it was just myself and Mom - who just suffered another mild stroke. We kept her day low key on her request. So happy to see Kevin now releasing patterns and would so love to meet him in person.

  22. Had a very hard Thanksgiving this year.Got news from the Dr. I need hip replacement surgery.I was in shock all day. Then went to make my mashed potatoes and the top popped off and pepper went in my bowl.Then had a 1 1/2 hour fire alarm in my apt.building.But I feel blessed just to be alive. There is always Christmas to look forward to.

  31. Great giveaway! I especially like Gracie Lou's Rail Fence, but both are good. Our Thanksgiving was a lot smaller than usual -- only 13 adults. That was because we issued the invitations late due to a 2 month road trip. But we really enjoyed seeing some of our family and International friends Thursday. Nancy A: SewingGranda@gmail.com
