Holly Jolly Blog Bingo … Day Five

Holly Jolly Blog Bingo - Day 5

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday :)  Looks like we had a bit of rain last night.  How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?  You’ll want to read all the way down to the bottom of our post today (don’t stop at the words).  I’ve got a special project I’d love to feature YOU in.

Monday’s Winner …

Congratulations to

AnnieO from SoCal and “Annie’s Quilt Orts” blog.

Annie, you’ve won the Jelly Baskets pattern from Fig Tree.  Send us an email with your address (hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net) and we’ll get your pattern right out.

tuesday’s giveawaY …

Our giveaway today is

10 assorted spools of Presencia Thread.

I love working with this thread, and know you will too!

tuesday’s BINGO WORDS …

It looks like for the most part, we are all starting to cross something off our lists.  This is definitely a “slow and steady wins the race” kinda’ game, so don’t fret if you don’t have that many words yet.  There’s still plenty of time!

Here’s today’s words …

presents

garland

family

christmas village

silver bells

table runners

holly

tuesday’s BLOG ROLL …

Here’s a few more blogs for your reading pleasure.  Don’t forget to leave a comment and say hi from a fellow Holly Jolly Blog BIngo player.

NOTE:  If you have a NON-blogger blog and would like for us to add you to our feature list, please send us an email (hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net)  with your blog addy. 

Sunflower Seeds

Quilting Fun

Rhanda Seams Sew Crazy

Esprit Patch

Tea and Quilts

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

At the end of the Bingo Game, I’d love to do a couple of posts of special Christmas projects you’ve been working on.  They don’t have to be quilty … they can be crafty … or maybe a special recipe … or a tablescape … or a decorating idea … a special tradition … etc. 

I have a special project I’ve been working on … it’s a secret present for a dear friend.

So, here’s what to do …

Send us pics of any of the above, which is really just about anything you’ve been doing, and we’ll begin to put together a blog parade to post after our Bingo game is over.  If you want to include instructions or recipes, that would be great.  Include your name, where you are from, a description, and pictures.  You can send them to hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net.  In the subject line put:  PARADE.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Beadbugbit said...

No words for me today, so far only two words---is that a record? And I thought I chose wisely. Yesterday I made a small Jacob's Ladder quilt from a Lori Smith pattern. Finished the whole top, 16" x 20" in a day, which is pretty good since I am a beginner. I think it took me longer to pick out the fabric!

annemarie said...

No words today - guess I am not very good at choosing words!!

Stine said...

Presencia Thread...never used it, but would love to try it out. I'm always looking for yummy, new thread colors!
