  2. Woohoo! If I can’t be there, this is a great consolation prize! I’ll keep my fingers crossed! Thanks!

  3. Someone has to stay home and hold down the fort! Thank for the wonderful giveaway! One day I do hope to attend a Quilt Market! I love the energy!

  4. I am finishing a quilt top for my son for Christmas for his dorm room at college. Feeling left out of quilt market but sewing makes up for it and winning this would be icing on the cake!!!

  5. Hope I win!!! I will be busy doing Church stuff this weekend and attending a wedding tonight!

  6. This weekend I will hopefully get some quilting done in between playing with my kids. Christmas is coming!

  7. I’ll be finishing up a quilt I started last week. At least I hope I’ll be finishing it up.

  8. My son came home for a visit so I will be spending most of my time with him, otherwise, sewing and baking.

  9. As I’d have to paddle my own canoe, it’s a long way from down under for a sleep over and I’d just be arriving when it’s finished. So staying home to watch action on social media and dreaming big.

  10. This weekend we’re raking leaves, blowing out sprinkler pipes, and putting the flower gardens to bed for the winter. After all, it’s supposed to snow Sunday!

  11. I’ve definitely been feeling jealous of those at Market, but this is a wonderful offer for us!! thanks!

  12. This weekend is really busy here. Hopefully I can get in a little sewing. Saturday we are raking leaves, getting our garden ready for spring, household chores, helping out at church, going out to dinner with some friends. Sunday we go to church, our church now had two services, so we both will be at both, I will be in the nursery and my husband will be producing the service, then we will head over to my sister in laws house. One of our aunt and uncle who live in Washington are in town, so we get to spend the whole day with them. Should be a great family time. This is all just the tip of the iceberg this weekend. LOL Give me strength.

  13. I am working this morning, but this afternoon I will be finishing up a mannequin scissor holder for a blog hop over at Sew We Quilt

  14. My dog, Bramble, & I are participating in a DogFest. It is an event to raise money for Canine Companions for Independence. Bramble is my hearing dog. She alerts me to different sounds like the doorbell, phone, oven timer. CCI is a wonderful organization!

  15. What a generous giveaway for us that can’t be there but would LOVE to be. Even though doing a little sewing at home this weekend still would love to get to go.

  16. Well, I always love hearing about quilt market. This giveaway is a nice way to make those of us who are customers of the industry, feel closer to the heart of it. Thanks so much.

  31. I am quilting my brothers Quilt Of Valor Quilt for Christmas present. Hope to get it finished for him as he served this country in Vietnam. So terrible!
