Blog Hop Party…The big day…

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Here we go!  I am very happy to be participating in the  Quilting Gallery’s Blog Hop Party!  Haven’t done this in a long, long time … and am looking forward to playing along.

My giveaway is:

A lovely handmade pillowcase.  Yep.  I made it myself.  It has french seams and is sewn rather nicely – I think.  Will fit a standard pillow.

So you have from now until December 17th to enter on this blog post only! 

Leave a comment and if you want you can tell me what your favorite Christmas or Holiday song is.  I’m trying to find some new ones to listen to.

    Beautiful work, Sara! My favorite is a French carol called “Un Flambeau, Jeanette, Isabella”. Translation – Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella. The melody is soft, but intricate, and sung well, it’s a delight to the ears!

    Beautiful job on the pillowcase! I would love a chance to try for it. 🙂 It would look beautiful in my guest room with the quilt I have on the bed.

    My favorite Christmas song is “Do You Hear What I Hear”. I love it, but I love all Christmas musice. I could listen to it all year long (except “Grandma got run over by a reindeer” LOL Now that I’m a grandmother that’s not so funny! ). LOL

    Thank you for the chance!

    I love any setting of “In the Bleak Midwinter” only for the Christina Rossetti text, “What can I give Him,Poor as I am? If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb, If I were a wise man I would do my part, Yet what I can I give Him, Give my heart.”

    I love most Christmas songs, but I love it most when Manheim Steamroller (the orchestra name) plays ANY Christmas song. If you haven’t heard them, run don’t walk, to the nearest music shop (or music download) and get some.

    My favorite is an oldie….it’s a bit obscure when you find old video of it. David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing Little Drummer Boy around a piano. Neither looks like want to be there, but the combination of both of their voices was great 🙂 Happy Holidays from northern Maryland!
