Snow, painting, and a giveaway

_DSC9013

Oh how I love those weekends where you lazily lounge around in your pajamas till noon and get dressed purely to visit the Dairy Queen that is situated a mere 1/10th of a mile from your house.  I kid you not - it's pretty freaking awesome - and yes the ground is covered in snow, but ice cream has no season in our family.  We've lived here for only two weeks and I'm pretty sure they know us by name already. 

But we were up and moving extra early this morning because.....

It snowed!

_DSC9019

For the first big snow to hold off until mid-December here in Michigan is quite rare, so we were pretty excited.  Phoebe didn't even get a chance to change out of her sock monkey jammies before heading out into the winter wonderland.

Our weekend also involved lots of painting.   After painting a dozen swatches on the wall, and pouring over almost every paint chip created, we went for it and painted our kitchen Lemon Pound Cake.  And we hated it.   So I got to spend both naptimes and bedtime repainting it Corn Husk Green, and goodness, it looks about ten million times better.  I'll have some pictures once I finish painting the trim and ceiling (yes, the ceiling is currently painted calamine lotion pink.  I'm still not quite sure what the previous owners were thinking).

Now, onto the giveaway! I just want to say "hello and welcome!" to all of the new visitors here for Giveaway Day.  I'm offering up an assortment of scraps from my stash of Heather Ross fabric.  I might have mentioned a few times that Heather is my absolute favorite fabric designer, and what better way to introduce you to my blog than to share with you some of my favorite things!

Heather Ross Giveaway

I've got quite an assortment of pieces left over from my various Heather quilts, so if you'd like a chance to win, please leave a comment telling me what you are hoping to receive this Christmas.  I'm still really behind on my shopping and would love some great ideas.
And I don't know about you, but I hate it when people make you tweet, like, follow, blog, etc. for extra entries (who has time to do all of that?), so I'll make it easy on you and just leave it to one entry per person.  But if you'd like to add me to your reader, that would be awesome :)

**Comments are closed!  Announcing the winner tomorrow :) **

  1. You are already in my reader. I'm hoping for some gift certificates to fabric shops for xmas. I need more fabric (not really, but you can never have enough right?). I could also use more thread. Thanks for the giveaway - love Heather Ross!

  3. Holy cow all that snow looks AMAZING! I have never even seen snow and have always wanted a white Christmas! Although this year I am seriously lusting after some artwork by Rob Ryan and of course mounds of fabric! Thanks for a chance at the giveaway and enjoy all that beautiful snow!

  4. oh what yummy pieces of Heather Ross fabric! What a lovely giveaway.

    My Christmas list is not too shockingly filled with fabric related items like new sewing machine feet, quilting books, and of course fabric! I also have some book series that I would like to own. I never have any trouble with coming up with a list! LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm always up for a giveaway and since I've recently started sewing, I'm up for some great fabric! Can't wait to see the 'new' kitchen!

  8. I have a rather short christmas list. A few quilting books and a Holga camera. My friend has one and takes the most beautiful pictures with it.
    Tks for the wonderful chance for HR scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yay for HR giveaways!! I would like to receive fabric or something homemade from someone from Christmas, but since that probably won't be happening, I would settle for a little money for a clothes shopping spree :)

  10. OMG The only thing cuter than Heather Ross fabric scraps is your little one in that sock monkey hat!

    Thank you for sharing some of your precious stash.

    I am really hoping Santa brings me a cutting mat for my new rotary cutter, and a small bookshelf for my crafting area.

    hugs & Happy Holidays

  24. Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway days are so much fun (for obvious reasons) but my favorite thing about them is stumbling upon fun new blogs to add to my reader (like yours) that I can enjoy all year long!

    Heather Ross is my favorite as well! Sadly, I was one of the few that didn't receive their order for her Studio sale :( So she's on my Christmas wish list!

    Happy Holidays!

  40. Such cute fabrics! The gnomes are *adorable*!! I recently saw some homemmade cloth napkins (serviettes) on a blog, and have since wanted to try some - these scraps would be perfect!

    I also hate it when you are supposed to tweet, like, etc. to enter a giveaway. :)

    As for the holiday gift I am hoping for, I really wanted the Ken Burn's National Parks DVD set. I know I'm getting it, though, 'cause, um, I sort of bought it for myself and gave it to the husband to wrap up for me! :p

I wish to be thankful that I have my family around me the rest of the year. God Bless us, every one.

  74. Such cute fabrics! I have a bunch of crafting supplies on my Christmas list.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Very cute fabrics! I've already gotten my big present early- a new sewing machine. My husband claims that it's because I needed it for the presents I was going to be making, but I know it's just because he doesn't know how to keep a secret. :-) So, I'm hoping that I still get a new sewing box. One of my little heathen children sat on mine, so one of the sides is crushed in. LOL
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love scraps--they always seem to just fit in easier than pieces cut on purpose! For Christmas I am hoping for some time to put my feet up with a good book or for a nap--not to always be entertaining (I'm not a scrooge, just tired today)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi,
    I love Heather Ross too, she obviously has a good sense of humour!
    I am hoping to get the forgiveness of my husband for Christmas for getting slightly tipsy and impulse buying a serger on ebay! I think I'm just getting a lump of coal this Christmas! lol!

  125. I am absolutely a follower! Heather Ross is one of my favorites, too--what a great assortment of prints! I have to admit, I'm becoming hard to shop for--I'd be happiest with some basting spray, batting, or a new quilt book or two. My husband finds that kind of underwhelming, poor guy!

    ReplyDelete

  144. Aww, darling pictures of Phoebe, and I love the name! Thanks for sharing your Heather Ross stash with one of us; she's my favorite designer, too.

    As for Christmas, I'm hoping for yarn and fabric. It's always at the top of my list!

  149. I'm getting a flat iron (for my hair) because my current one has a 'problem' with staying on-I know I'm receiving this gift from my husband because I bought it and wrapped it myself (while husband played computer games) :) It's alright I guess, because he is buying his own present too...we are kinda boring I guess :P

    I do a lot of applique, so your scraps would be amazing to add to my projects!!!

  150. I'm hoping for some of those fish in the baggies fabric now!! Seriously though, I really don't want anything special for Christmas. I have all I need: a loving husband, three wonderful kiddos, and a fourth kiddo on the way (who will make his/her appearance in January!). I do love me some Heather Ross though and sadly didn't get into sewing until my favorite line was already oop. Thanks for the chance to win though! And have a Merry Christmas!!

  165. Totally agree about having to take a zillion different steps to be entered in a giveaway. Thanks for making yours simple. I'm asking for some Japanese pattern books and some issues of Ottobre magazine for Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Oh man oh man oh man! I started quilting this past January and didn't get into fabric until then, which means that I pretty much wasn't "with it" when all these wonderful fabrics were in print! I did, however, ask for a FQ bundle of FFA2 and I'm really hoping Santa delivers! This would be such a great giveaway to win! =)

    ReplyDelete
  167. Ooooh! Squeal!!! I'm hoping that I win these Heather Ross fabrics for Christmas. (I've also provided Santa with a list of quilt-related books, one or two of which I hope show up in my stocking!!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  193. I love the kitchen in your new house. I don't really have anything on my wish list. It's been a really hard year for us so I am just hoping for 2011 to be a better year. But then again fabric is always on my wish list.
