The guilt of not posting after mentioning a giveaway has finally gotten to me... oh the shame.  I promise there is one though!  I got a bit too busy with last-minute Christmas gifts that turned out to take a lot more time than I expected.  An entire quilt in three days?  All done by hand?  With everyone in the family's name embroidered on it?  Ah, why not!?  Nuts, I tell you.

Anywho, I would like to make a mini-family tree quilt for you too!!  All that you have to do is leave me a comment that lists all of the names you would like to have on the quilt.  You can enter up to three times, and you can enter on behalf of one other person also.  I mean, think of the brownie points you can earn here, geesh.  I'll give everyone (who ever may still be there after my hiatus, that is)  up to two weeks to enter, and then pick a winner randomly. Good luck!

Until then, I shall be having fun with a few books from a co-worker,

and, finally delving into my stash of favorite fabrics....

I can't wait! 

UPDATE:  Entries for this giveaway will only be accepted until 12:00 AM, January 16th, EST.

YEAH for Jellybean Soup Company! I LUV Giveaways! Count me in, please. As for the names: Tony, Joan, McKenna & Skippy, too! Thanx for offering a fun giveaway!

(I'm gonna blog about it for you at my blog, too!)

Have a fun day and give Dax a PUG HUG from Skippy!

Kathleen said...

What a generous thing to give away! I love handmade items (since I'm a knitter and crafter as well), but have yet to make a quilt. I should start one for my son, who was born this past year.

I only have three names to list, myself, my husband Chris, and my son, Soren. Thanks for the chance to win.

Joan said...

Hey Jelly Bean,

Just wanted to let you know that I posted about your wonderful Give-Away. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you receive lots of entries!
Have a fun day!
Joan & Skippy

Dozer and Coop said...

Good morning!

Mum was reading the Peace, Love and Pugs (one of our favorite blogs) and that led us to you! We think you are very generous to have a giveaway - we are talking to Mum about perhaps doing one of her own (except we are not entirely sure she has the talent to make anything any one would want! BOL!)

We are very pleased to meet Dax because.....we're corgis too! We know! Who knew there were so many good looking corgis in the world! BOL!

We would like to enter your giveaway. If we won we think it would mean a whole bunch to our Mum to surprise our Dad with the quilt. See, our Mum (Nancy) married our Dad (Bob) about ten years ago - second marriage for both. Mum married Dad and fell in love with his four grown-up girls (Ann, Katie, Holly and Emily)and all six of the grandchildren. Mum never had children of her own so this was like hitting the jackpot.

We personally feel that if Mum won that we should be listed in the family tree because we are much more loveable and honestly, we cuddle better and provide much better entertainment than any of the grands (as in grandchildren).

But being the fair dogs we are, we would leave this up to your best judgement. Did we mention Mum is from the Midwest originally (Illinois) so if that carries weight for you, go ahead and give us points for it.

Mum says we have made our case much too long and that we must sign off. Please ask Dax to visit us at I write most of the blog but I do let my brother and sister write occasionally.

All the best, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper Edwards in Oregon

Thank you so much for the generosity! I would love to have something to remember my father's side of the family by. They all passed away very tragically, last one to go was my grandmother a few years ago and I still haven't gotten past that. I'm the only one left from that side of the family. I would love to have a familytree like this. The names are:
Katarzyna (me)

Yvonne (his mother)
Anna-Greta (his grandmother)

Katarina said...

I would like to use this post for me and my fiancée. We celebrated 10 years together in december and it would be wonderful to celebrate us with a family tree. We don't have any children and because of that we're not always taken seriously as a family - which is very hurtful. I would like to celebrate my little family, so the names are:


Thank you so much for this giveaway. I'm a crafter myself and know how much work and heart it goes into these kind of things. If I would be lucky enough to win you should know that I'll treasure this forever.
