It's a Party!!!


Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

There are over 150 bloggers participating in the Big Birthday Bash over at Quilting Gallery - and YOU are the winners!  Each blog has a giveaway - 
fun stuff, quilty stuff, stuff you really, really want!  :*D  

Here at A Quilt and A Prayer, I am getting ready for the Christmas season =^..^=  
And what could be a better birthday gift at this time of year than Christmas fabrics and other fun stuff?  
This is what I am offering.....


There's a half yard of this really cute Grandma's Gingerbread fabric....


And then I added these cute fat quarters that will play very nicely with it =^..^=


And then... (I couldn't stop!) .... I added these adorable heart-shaped cookie ornaments!  
Yes, I had to force myself to give them away!  I actually bought them at The Cherry Pit last week for my own tree.  But then I realized how perfectly they match this fabric and I decided they needed to go with this gift package :*D


And then.... (Somebody stop me!!!)  .... I added an unopened spool of Aurifil thread to the mix!

***************************************

So how do you win this bundle of Christmas quilty goodies?  You can have TWO chances at winning.....

1st CHANCE -  Leave a comment here telling me what you remember most about your Grandma's kitchen.  I remember my grandmother had these wonderful rooster plates that I loved.  She always made "dippy" eggs for my breakfast when I visited in the summers.  I dipped my bread in those egg yolks and ate quickly, excited about seeing the rooster show up on the plate as I finished!  Ah, good memories!  I really, really miss my grandmother!!!

2nd CHANCE - If you are a follower, leave a SECOND comment telling me that you are.  If you are not a follower, become a follower and tell me in your SECOND comment how you are following (Google Friend Connect, email, etc.)

  62. This is SO easy! My favorite memory of my grandma's kitchen is sitting on the stool watching her churn butter!!! We would fight over who was going to sit on the stool but she always knew whose turn it was! Granny's just know these things. lol

    ReplyDelete
  63. I can remember my Grandma making me green beans for dinner. Her green beans were so good. She used a bit of vinegar in hers. She and Granddad would always watch the Ed Sullivan show after dinner. Your gift package is going to become the envy of every follower in the quilter's world. It's beginning to feel like Christmas. Thank you for being so generous and here's hoping your holidays are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  72. My gramma had a drawer beside her stove that was just the right height for me to stand in to help her cook. She always kept that drawer empty so I could climb up and help whenever I wanted. We used to butcher chickens and I got to help singe off the pin feathers.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I remember everyone crammed into the grandparents kitchen playing cards and watching both of the grandparents who would be on opposite teams cheat.

    ReplyDelete
  74. My grandmother has a teeny, tiny kitchen, but somehow, over the holidays, there are about ten people crammed in there, trying to turn around and have room to stir a bowl. She always had plenty of aprons she had sewn to pass out to all her helpers (whether we were very helpful or not).

    ReplyDelete
  75. My grandmother was very short - under 5' tall, so Grandpa had her cupboards built lower to suit her height. I remember her kitchen as being almost like a doll house, because everything was so low to the ground for me.

  77. I honestly didn't spend much time in either of my grandma's kitchens. I never remember being at their homes baking...and my paternal grandmother was always very ill with diabetes...until she passed when I was very young.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  104. My grandmother had an old butter churn by the back door. Her kitchen always smelled so yummy! I remember her 'one spoon' leftover dish containers. If there was one spoonful of something leftover, she'd put it in a dish, and put it back into the fridge for another meal. It would get pulled out every meal until someone ate it. I have 2 of those little pyrex dishes in my own kitchen, just to remind me of my grandmother. She is the reason I love treadle sewing machines, too.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  142. What I remember best about my gran's kitchen is her in it. When we went to the farm after she passed away, I felt like a stranger in a strange place - I kept expecting her to come around the corner and open her arms to me.. Like you, I miss her still and she has been gone 9 years now.
    Thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous collection of things- I especially like the gingergbread fabric- and those cute hearts.. all too lovely.
    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  144. My Granny had a pie safe which held dishes, some of which had been chipped or cracked when a storm destroyed her previous home. To her they were still useable and she saw no need to discard them. The best thing about it was that was where the cookies were. She and I would have our own little tea party with cookies and hot tea sweetened with saccharin. I miss my Granny too!

  150. I don't remember any "grandmas" in my past and I'm sorry for that. My Mother never talked of her parents and my Father had family very far away. I will say I hope my grandchildren remember that I made cookies with them. Thank you for the chance to win this wonderful prize!

  152. Hey Girlfriend! I grew up right next door to my Grandma K. She always had a smile and the best big red candy jar in her kitchen. We could pick out our candy and she would put it in a Baggie for us.

  155. No memories of my grandmothers but I now live in the farm house that was my husband's grandmother's. I get to use her amazingly huge stove from the fifties and feel like she watches out for my baking projects :)

  159. What a fun and festive giveaway, Teresa.
    I recall that my grandma kept a block of butter in her fridge (we grew up on margarine) and she would put chunks of it on my bread because it was too hard to spread. I have never gotten over my love of butter! : )
