A Celebration Giveaway!

Sorry...the giveaway is over.


Well, I'm pleased as punch at the news I have for you today. Maybe you haven't heard the proclamation: The Quilting Snowladies are finished!


And you've all been so sweet with your well wishes about the finish. As I've told you before, the cute embroidery designs for the Quilting Snowladies are the clever artistry of Carol L. Steffensen of Chickadee Hollow Designs. Carol and I have been emailing back and forth about another matter, and she asked me to send her a picture of my finished quilt. In the process, Carol generously agreed to sponsor today's giveaway of the WHOLE SET of the Quilting Snowladies. And take it from me...these little snowladies are so much fun to stitch! Not only that...there's a veritable party going on in your sewing room all the time when you have them for company. If you haven't met the snowladies yet, you can see all twelve of them right here.

So let's get right down to it. How can you win a set of your own? Here's how this is gonna go:

1. Head on over there to Carol's website at Chickadee Hollow Designs, click on one or more of the shop categories. For a chance to win, tell me which among her many patterns you'd love to make. There's so much to choose from, and I know you're going to love shopping there as much as I do.

2. You can earn a second chance to win by signing up for Carol's newsletter. Scroll on down to the bottom of her home page, sign up, and then, come back and leave another comment telling me you've done that.

3. You can get a third chance to win by being a follower of mine...new or salty...we're not picky here at the Three Cats Ranch. Check out the many ways to follow in my left sidebar there, and then leave me a comment telling me your method. (Madness is strictly optional.)

4. Make sure I have a way to contact you! No reply equals no chance to win. If you're not sure, then leave your email with your comment. Here's a clue: if no one ever replies to comments you leave on blogs, there's a reason.

I'll leave this giveaway open until 11:59 p.m. (PST) Tuesday, and then announce the winner on Wednesday morning. Oh yes, and this giveaway is open to all residents of Planet Earth. Good luck!

  6. Congratulations on finishing your Snowladies! I've been watching your progress and love it. Really like the way you quilted it. Went over to Carol's site and fell in love with The Bag Ladies of the Fat Quarter Club. Of course they aren't quite as cute as the Snowladies but I have a thing about snow people. Rina

  7. I've been a follower of yours for ages. Cat Patches is the first blog I look for everyday. The latest adventures of Barbara, Smitty and Maggie's new boyfriend (your hubby)are not to be missed. I even got my sister hooked on Cat Patches and she doesn't read blogs. Got you covered via Facebook and blogger and Bloglovin. Rina

  11. The Jingle Socks are just adorable - all of her ornaments are too, but the socks just tickle me. - congrats on that big finish!

  12. How nice of Carol! It is not a matter of it, but when -- now that you've finally finally gotten me to the point that I have started to embroider again, I think it will be part of my daily schedule. Why not, since I am creating one all anew! I will likely start with the simple but adorable christmas tree -- I realized just lately that I have no holiday items any more but of course my daughter in law does, and I want some of my work, memories of me, to be woven into their traditions, so I will make it for them.
