Sew Mama Sew Give-Away

So I am joining up with the Sew Mama Sew Give-Away day. This has nothing to do with my quilt naming contest, which is yet to come.

http://www.sewmamasew.com/?p=44321

I will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics, one of my favorite fabric stores.


I especially love their Color Stacks and Collection Coordinates.

I will ship internationally. No reply bloggers, please leave your email address with your comments.

This give-away is now closed. The winner will be picked randomly.

There were three ways to enter:

1) Leave a comment telling me what your favorite holiday tradition is (required).
2) Leave a separate comment telling me how you follow my blog (optional).
3) Share my give-away, and leave me a comment with a link to your post on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, your blog, etc. (optional).

Happy Holidays and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Updated: And the winner is....

Number 73... Renee!

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who entered!

  105. Our only real tradition is traveling. This year we will drive to my in-laws the weekend before Christmas, but I'm happy to say that we will be celebrating the holiday here at home for the first time that I can recall. Even when I was going through chemo and didn't take a chance on visiting my family (lots of little kids = lots of germs and chemo = low white blood counts), we went to my in-laws. I think we are going to cook a ham, make some veggies, and bake a pie, and then sit on the couch and watch whatever we want. Well, there will probably also be a light show somewhere, too, and maybe an extra walk for the dogs. See, not having any traditions means that I get to make it all up for myself! It makes me happy just thinking about it.
