Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop Winners

Oh what fun the Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop was.  Needless to say I am now addicted to these wonderful activities and tried to join the pin cushion hop but noticed I was too late, but alas I know more wonderful hops are on the horizon under the direction of Madam Samm and Carol so I will show my patience until I see the next announcement and then I will hop on it, ok I know that was lame but it is the best I have this morning.  Once again I would like to thank Carol and Madam Samm for making my first hop so delightful.

Now for the winners.  Hubby and I have discussed for two days, (sometimes I think we may over think things) the best way to pick the winner, I had wanted him to draw but when I mentioned the Random Number Generator, he felt that was more scientific (he is way more scientific than I) so that is my method for acquiring my winners.  The first winner is #90

Great Santas and sleighs. Your work is terrific! Thank you for sharing!
and you are winning this fabric......
Now winner number two is.... #72
Santa is just wonderful. Reminds me of the poem "The Night Before Christmas". Great job.
Thanks for sharing.
She will receive this...
And the last winner is #56
your creations are lovely. thank you for the chance.
This is her fabric...

These lucky winners will be receiving an email from me as soon as this is published
That officially finishes my first blog hop.  It was areally fun journey, thanks again to all 117 for the lovely comments.

My Day on the HO HO HO Blog Hop

First and foremost many, many thanks to our cheerleader Carol for her kind thoughts and encouragement throughout the preparation for the hop.  And to Madam Sam for the great ideas.  Click on this picture on my sidebar for the scoop.
I have been so excited to participate in my very first hop.  Here are the other blogs for today, be sure to visit them for they surely have wonderful things to show you.

Well I have sewn and sewn and finally it is finished.  I have called it Hey Santa, Please Stop Here. 

 It is our own design and was lots of fun. It is fused applique and machine quilted.  I also had a back up that I finished earlier this month.  (Just in case) This is Up Up and Away.  By Jana Davidson
It is a machine embroidery design with pieced blocks.  The half square triangles are 1.5" and don't you like hubby's feet.  Hmmm just noticed that.  Couldn't take another photo because this has already been given to my friend.
Well, since this is my first blog hop I decided I should have my first giveaway.  I will be giving away three 1/2 yard cuts of fabric to three lucky winners.  Your name will be placed in a basket and hubby will be doing the drawing.  The first name drawn will receive this 1/2 yard cut by Kaffe Fassett, Asian Circles.

The second name drawn will win this cut from Free Spirit called Garden Walk.

And the last name drawn will receive this one from Michael Miller:
I will draw the winner on August 9th.

Thank you all for stopping by and please leave a comment to have your name placed in the drawing.  And if you are a no-reply blogger please add your email address so I will be able to contact you.
That's it for me....hope your journey is fun filled with lots of jolly Ho Ho Ho's.
