(Closed) Leap Day Giveaway and Blog Hop





Leap Day Giveaway
Thank you for joining me and  Such a Sew and Sew for the Leap Day Giveaway.  Here are the rules as copied from The main blog hop page.

Here's how it works:
• Choose something to give away on Leap Day. Keep it simple. You can make something, give away a bit of your stash, offer a service, buy your favorite gadget to give away or offer something completely non-crafty. Your blog, you choose.
• To participate in the blog hop, your giveaway must start and end on Leap Day {February 29, 2012} in your time zone. You can open it at 10:00 am and close it at 10:00 pm, or go midnight to midnight, or anything in between. Your blog, your rules.
• Post your giveaway and then link up here. Please remember to link to your specific post {instructions here}. Please also include the Leap Day Giveaway button {code found below} somewhere in your giveaway post.
• The linky will open at noon MST on February 28th and close at 10:00 am MST on March 1st, to allow for people in different time zones to participate.
• If you want to include the linky tool on your giveaway post others can link up from your blog and it will automatically update in every location the linky is posted. The code is available below. If you choose to add the linky to your post, you MUST include the above rules so that it is fair play for all.
• Consider changing your comment settings to the pop-up window option for faster and easier commenting for all the visitors who'll be stopping by your blog. Instructions can be found here.

Now for my Blog Specific instructions. I am going to offer 8 item below.  I will be picking 2 winners and the first winner can pick 3 of the 8 items.  Then 2nd winner can pick 3 items leaving me left with 2 items. To make you work just a tad (this was a hop after all you have to hop over something) you must include in your comment for your blog entry the name of your favorite quilt I have finished.  Link to Richard's Finishes to make it easy to find the name.  Also you must be a follower of my blog.  You can follow though reader, Google friends connect or though rain dancing (is that really a follow method?)  List in your response how you follow me, just curious how people follow.  Oh and for all you people out there that want more then 1 chance you can also list your blog on the blog hop and get a extra chance so that's 2 responses (listing 2 separate quilts) if you participate.

How the winner will be found.  I will put the name of each quilt in a bowl (on a slip of paper) and have my son Jared pick one out.  Then we will get the list of all those that guessed that quilt and put their names in a bowl and let him pick one out.  This will be done twice once for each winner.  Winners will be emailed (oh ya make sure your email is in the response and your not a no-reply blogger).  The first winner will get 24 hours to pick their 3 items.  And then The 2nd winner will get their chance of the items left over.

Ok is it worth it to HOP over these silly requirements.  You decide here are the 8 items.

1) Little Gatherings a Moda Charm Pack.

2) A cutting blade that is not loved in my home (I bought this blade shortly after I started quilting and while when I cut I put just a tad to forcefully and the blade closes,  It works, its not a cheap blade just not loved by me) Maybe some one else wants it in their home.

3) A baby Dresden Plate Pattern (also bought specifically for this)

4) Yes 2 special Made hot pads.  I have 6 of them sitting in a box so you might not get these exact 2 but 2 just like these.  Complete with my Tags on them.

5) Hum I have my picture on its side, good thing Diamonds do not care.  Also this tool was bought for this prize.

6) 2 of my Granny Squares (You may get different colors wife gets to pick the ones she wants for the quilts I am making if you want this one you can request colors) oh and one of my cute tags to boot!

7) 2 of my 5 x 5 color squares.  Also maybe not exactly these 2 depends on which ones end up in my quilt.  You can request colors if you desire this one also.

8) Hey you say I forgot to put a picture in for 8.  That is because it's a mystery.  No not a pair of dirty socks.  I will make you a small table runner similar to Fug Runner (one of my completes) You can suggest colors if you want this one, depending I might have something that works for it not going to go shopping but willing to dig into the stash for items.

So again make a guess.  Name the quilt of mine you like best, Name how you follow me.  2nd Guess if you also host a giveaway today.  (My wife points out that I did not put a end date.  As the giveaway instructions says it closes when leap year/day is over)

trillium said...

I like Train Wrek. There is a lot of interest for the eye-the diagonal line-up, the patterned blocks, and the colors work together nicely.

Do you have a speacial Singer quilting machine? Which model are you using and how is it going for you? I'd really like to know because I do not have a fancy machine but want to machine quilt.
