Blog Hop Party, Blog-Aversary Giveaway and The Primary Bee Final Call

It is that time of year again! Time for another fun Blog Hop Party hosted by Quilting Gallery.
This party is all about sharing the quilty love and finding lots of new-to-you blogs to follow.
Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways
If you are new to my blog, welcome!
If you are a regular reader, terrific and I'm glad that you're visiting again.

I love sharing my quilty projects here on my blog and I also love hosting great fun events. To date I've hosted quite a few including the Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin in 2012 and 2013, The Halloween See Saw Swap, The Quilt U Be Mine Mini Round Robin and the It's A Sister Thing Swap.

I also post a regular series Stunning Stitchin Sunday where I showcase great quilting, done either by hand or machine (domestic or longarm) and other terrific stitchery such as embroidery, cross stitch or even knitting or crocheting that I come across in quilt blog land. From the responses I've received in the past 4 months since I started this series, I know that it is becoming very popular, my readers look forward to seeing the spectacular work and gain inspiration for their own quilting project.

The current swap just now finishing up is the Kate Spain charm Swap.
 All the charms are sorted and I'm working on getting them packaged and out in the mail to their new owners. Let me tell you, the participants will be receiving back one gorgeous stack of charms. I can't wait to see what everyone makes with them and I can't wait to start sewing with mine. Plans are already in the works for Round 2 after Kate's newest line Daydreams comes out sometime in February.

Update: The Primary Bee is full!

My newest hosting gig just getting under way is The Primary Bee.
This is a quilting bee for the elementary school set, boys and girl, to teach them the foundations of simple and basic quilt block and quilt making and hopefully have them make a few quilty kidlet friends along the way.
This week is the Last Call for the sign ups so if you have a child or grandchild that you think would love to join in, head over to the intro post to read all the details and then email me all the needed info before the end of this coming weekend.

So not quite 2 weeks ago, my blog Uncelebrated it's 2 Year Anniversary (uncelebrated because I didn't actually celebrate it with all of you).  Since I had hosted a bunch of giveaways recently and also knowing that this Blog Hop Party was coming up, I decided to wait and have a belated celebration instead in the form of a really awesome giveaway opportunity for you.

To one lucky winner I will be send this copy of material obsession two by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke
It contains the authors' interpretations of a ton of great traditional blocks in modern settings. Here are just a couple of examples of what is contained within the cover.

The giveaway details are as follows:

Each person can have up to 2 chances to win.

1) Leave me a comment and tell me which genre of fabric is your favorite - Civil War, 1930's, Solids, Calico's, Primitive, Bold and Modern, Floral, Asian, Christmas, Halloween, Novelty...whichever floats your boat the most.

2) My readers have a 2nd chance to win, just tell me which way you follow. And Yes I do check.

Entries will close at Midnight, Tuesday November 26th.
As usual, if you are a No Reply Blogger include your email address in your comment or it will be removed from consideration. Better yet, solve the problem once and for all (I know you Wordpress folks aren't able to). Info on how to do that can be found here. It's easy peasy and you'll be glad that you did.

I hope you enjoy hopping around to everyone that is participating in the Blog Hop Party and a huge thank you so much goes to Michele for hosting such a great event again this year. Good luck to all! I hope to be lucky and win a couple of giveaways myself.

 I do love to read all of your comments and I'll attempt to respond to as many as I can but knowing the volume of comments that result from this Blog Hop Party it isn't likely that I'll be able to reply to them all. I do appreciate each one though and look forward to reading them.
