'Tis the Season ... for a giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

This post should probably be titled Seeing Stars!

When I wrote earlier this week, 25 of these little stars were finished.  And now there are 48, with another five or six in the queue.  All should be finished later today - yay!  Then it's on to the Christmas baking marathon.

'Tis the Season for giving, and someone who comments on this post will win one of my handmade stars plus this nifty little gadget, which Kyle at Timeless Reflections recommended highly in a post earlier this year.

This is just the tool for when those stray dark threads suddenly appear under the surface of your in-progress quilting or worse yet, in the most visible part of your completed quilt!

So, the usual rules - giveaway is open to U.S. readers, and if you are a no-reply commenter please leave your email address in your comment so I have a way to contact you if you're the lucky one.  I'll draw a name from the proverbial hat on Saturday afternoon and ship early next week.

And the question remains, will this grandma's best Christmas present arrive before the 25th? His mama's birthday is tomorrow, now that would be a perfect birthday gift, don't you think?

  3. Those sweet stars are on my list to do at least a couple of them. Thanks for reminding me!!!! Nothing like a new baby. My Grandson brought our newest Great Granddaughter over for a visit the other day. She was only 5 days old and I know for a fact none of mine were that tiny.

  4. You have been unstoppable in your creation of stars!!
    Is there any way you could have planned to have that snowman pop up so perfectly in the corner of the giveaway star?
    I would love to add this ornament to the other handmade ones hanging on my year-round sewing room tree. Thanks for the chance!

  6. The stars are so cute! I saw them on Pinterest and saved it, but haven't made any. I've been too busy. We got more snow yesterday and school was cancelled for today - including the Christmas program which was cancelled last week too.

  7. I love the stars but what are you going to do with them? Do you have a tutorial on them?
    When is the baby due? Is this your first grandchild?

  8. Hope the new baby arrives safe and sound. There is no better gift than that!

  9. I need to check out that tool, seeing those annoying threads pop up under a piece of white is one of my big "make me whine" things. I still haven't found time for a star but I bookmarked the tutorial.

  10. You've been busy making stars! And they're lovely. That thread picker is intriguing. I knew they were made for sweaters/yarn, but I've not seen one for fabric. It would be so useful on all the white background quilts I have a tendency to make. Thanks for the great giveaway and chance to win! Linda

  11. I hope the gift arrives before Christmas. We have three grandchildren with December birthdays - the 16, 18 and a Christmas Day baby.

  12. I bookmarked the ornaments to make next year with the grandkids. We make ornaments every year since my own kids were little so I'm always looking for new ideas.

    Hope the sweet little package arrives safely, grandma!
