Quilter's Blog Hop Party Time!!

*GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*

Today marks the start of another amazing Quilter's Blog Hop Party! After you leave here check out the link for a whole bunch more giveaways :)

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

I'll share some photos on things I have been working on lately. Mostly they are small items as I have a craft show coming up this coming Saturday.

These are just some small key chains. I like having something small and affordable for little kids to buy for their parents, babysitters etc. Plus, they are great for using up small scraps of fabric and batting!


These are sets of mini facecloths, good for a quick nighttime cleaning.

And these are some more tea towels (before I stitched them down)

But now... you want the giveaway!!!! Here you go!

FIVE half yards of Patty Young, Textured Basics!!

All you have to do is let me know if you name your sewing machine(s) and if so, what are their names? Mine are Jennie Janome and Pfilomena Pfaff. I won't include you if you ignore my question, and/or if you are a no-reply blogger! I will announce the winner on November 26th :)

Now go forth and enter many more giveaways!!

  1. Eee I love your fabric giveaway selection - YUM! My sewing machine is a Toyota and he is called Mr Toyota! Not very original but it suits him as he looks like he is from the 1970's/1980's - all cream, brown and orange!

  4. My machine is a Viking Ruby and her name is her majesty -- it was going to be Dorothy but her temperament at times is bratty and entitled so she got the name her majesty instead. I also have a traveling machine (Hello Kitty) called baby Jade

  5. I have an Elna, but I really don't have a name for her. Love your giveaway, thanks for the chance.

  6. The giveaway fabrics are awesome - love the colours in that line!

    I haven't named my sewing machine, but I don't like it very much, so maybe that's why! I don't know why I don't like it, except that it's incredibly basic and I want more space for quilting in it, but it keeps on chugging, so I can't justify getting rid of it to buy something new. I'd probably like it better if it'd just finally break down and quit working! (My phone is named Babette, after the artificial intelligence character in the tv version of jPod, so I'm not totally averse to naming the machinery in my life.)

    ReplyDelete
  15. No, my sewing machines haven't got names. There are far too many of them, and they are all older than me, so it would be a bit impertinent on my part.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  27. My sewing machine is a old Singer model 298 which is originally my moms and she no longer sew so it's a gift from her. I haven't thought of giving a name to my machine but I guess I'll call it "Old McDonald"

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don't have a name for my sewing machine. She's not quite a year old and is a BabyLock Symphony. I've considered naming her but can't come up with anything clever. I'm open to suggestions though!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a great giveaway! I just call my machines 15-91 (that is the make of my singer.....and since I have more than one they come 1591-2 or 15-91-3. LOL For some reason I have never really named them.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a generous and fabulous prize. My berninas are Lucy, Willie and Sparky. My longarm is Pete! Not sure why most of them are boys. Maybe it's the way they behave at times.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Like someone else said, I guess the first name of both of them is "My". When we got the 2nd machine, my husband asked if I was going to get rid of the first one...what a goofy question! That is "MY" machine, the first one I bought with MY very own money and it will be with me forever. I'm glad you are thinking of the kids being able to buy some presents, so many people overlook the kids wanting to buy their own gifts. Best wishes with your show.

    ReplyDelete

  71. I have not named my sewing machine, she is a Singer and was a gift from hubby and the boys last Christmas. She isn't fancy, but she has made lots of lovely things...

    ReplyDelete
  97. Love those little keys - clever idea!

    So I just got a new sewing machine (like a week ago) - a Bernina. I'm terrible at naming inanimate objects but my kids think it should be called "Lovely" or "Beautiful". I'm guessing those are the words I used most during the unpacking of the new machine ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    The other machine that came into my life two years ago, I just call Grandma's because my mom gave it to me and it belonged to my Step Dad's mom.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I love that people name their machines (and their furniture) but I've never named it although I often refer to it as The Beast or The Monster just because of it's size! I love all the little items you've made for sale. I think it is terrific that you've made small, creative and affordable items that children can purchase as gifts. And your fabric give-away is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete

  121. I have several machines, but only one has a name. It is "Bernie", my Bernina.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I name my machines so DH knows which one needs a little TLC. I have Rita a featherweight from 1941, Scarlet another featherweight which was a barn find and DH refurbished and painted my favorite color red. I have Marilyn and Dinah two 301's, Jane a Singer 500A, Millie, and Colleen two Japanese Machines styled after the Singer Model 15s, Sophia a Singer 99K, Essie a treadle which I got from my great grandmother I think she is a 126, Flora which is an antique White Rotary, Hedy a Singer 128 Blackside, Nora a Franklin which was manufactured by white, Lise which is a Singer model 15, baby which is my original singer 1425N I bought when my girls were little, and Astrid my Husqvarna/Viking which is use to free motion quilt on. I have some new acquisitions that DH have found for me for free, but they have not been cleaned up and sewn on yet.

  123. I haven't named my machine. It is a Brother embroidery/sewing machine and I love it, but just can't seem to
    find the right name for it.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I name all my electronics except my sewing machine. I think it's because she gave me so much trouble over the years that I didn't want to feel close to her by giving her a name.

    ReplyDelete
  125. What a wonderful prize! Years ago I had an old Pfaff 130 in a power stand that I used to take to craft fairs; she was known and loved as "Bertha!" I sew with a home Pfaff machine now, and she is not named - yet.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Yep. Named my Janome Gerry and the Singer Sally!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Thanks for the giveaway! I do not feel that I have connected with my sewing machine on that kind of level yet, and as such, it remains nameless.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Pretty lame names here... The brother, the Babylock, and the featherweight ..... Told you, lame-o

    ReplyDelete
  130. No names here, I'm afraid. I feel a great deal of affection for all three of them (especially the featherweight), but I guess I'm just not a namer. I didn't give my dress form a name either.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Love the fabric!! I have not named my machine either. It's fairly new , so haven't spent all the much time with it yet. Since I work full time and babysit grandkids on days off, I don't have as much time as I wish with my friend. Thanks so much for the chance to win. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.

  134. Fabulous giveaways: yes please!!
    My machines actually don't have names - my older one is one I learned to sew on and is a sturdy singer; the second one is a portable second hand Bernina (rather faded) beauty...
    So I guess you could say that is how I think of them.... named in the head..?

  148. WEll, my husband thinks that my machine is called, "just hold on Girl" because my machine has been close to a break down permanently for about a year, but I only paid like $130 (USD) for it so its hard for me to take it into a shop.

  153. My Pfaff (daily sewing machine) does not have a name unless it is misbehaving and then it is called names that are not ok to write anywhere!! I have a number of machines and only one has a name but that is because the model name is Vanessa - so it is called Vanessa. I also have a Necchi SuperNova, Pfaff 2040, SInger from 1915 and another from 1906.

  174. I just bought by Janome 7700 used yesterday. I found the name Bunny on the inside of the manual. It might have been the previous owner's name but I think it might stick as the name of my machine!

    ReplyDelete
  175. I sew on a Bernina but do not have a pet name but I can think of a word starting with 'B' that is used when it does terrible things and does not perform well. Love your selection of fabrics.

  179. WHOA! Look at all of your commentors! I like the idea that you have things for little kids to get their parents. I have named my machines, but I can't remember what the names of the FW's are (guess you can tell how much I call them by their names, LOL!) Alyssa bought the first one, so I will say her name is Joy because that's Lyss's middle name and the other is something that means green cos she is... it was a stone. I think it was Celadine. My new one is Jerrica Janome... I do call her that. I love your giveaway, but you don't have to include me... I just wanted to comment. :)

  181. I always think about naming them ... sometimes I never get around to settle on a name .. it's just "granny's machine" mum's and mine and then we have the work horse (a huge industrial one that needs a special electric connection so i doubt it will move in with me anytime soon)... mum's and mine stay with me all the time .. so yeah my sewing amchiens are named after the former owners ... so I bet my mum does not know of her luck of being the ex-owner, I guess there will be some talk about returning it at some point ... they are all Pfaffs so staying with the brand name won't help much .. it's frustrating. I think one of them will be named Olga at one point but I can't decide which one .. so for now I will stay with granny's mum's and mine and not to forget the work horse...

  182. I have two Janomes, neither of which has a name - how sad! Actually, I'm hoping to win a Lucey in the APQS giveaway, so I was thinking I should name the Janomes "L" names as well. My Janome MC 6000 would probably be Lena after my mother since it was her machine. Haven't thought of a name for the other one yet.

  183. Yummy giveaway fabrics - thank you! I have Mr. Juki (2010Q), Julia (Juki F600) and and Pfannie (Pfaff Quiltstyle). A year ago I just had my Pfaff with no name, but I figure multiples needed names. My 2010Q is so rugged he was all man right from the first stitch and I am "sew" in love with him!

  184. My Viking is named Helga - we spend a lot of time together!

  185. Funny, I have named my cars, but not my machines. How about Benita Bernina and heather featherweight? Probably not real original, but it was off th cuff.

  186. I haven't named mu sewing machine, but perhaps I should! It seems like a popular thing to do. :)

  187. Mine don't have names, I'm afraid. Thanks for the chance for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  188. Hmm, I actually never thought about naming it. I guess it's a her. She's a Huskystar so maybe Helga. She's husky and strong and that's awesome! Thanks for the idea!
