The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface - So it is that we develop - But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work. For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece.

Running out of fabric and money so hoping to win some over this years bog hop. LOL Have a great Holiday. : ) And thanks for the opportunity.

Mommarock said...

Wonderful giveaway, I am a follower. The best thing about this holiday is that my son who is in the military has been granted leave, and will be coming home to visit with mom and dad for a bit, oh the cooking we will do!! All his favorites :)

Suzan said...

Wow! Look at all the goodies! I have been following for a while.

Patty C. said...

Oh -I think my heart stopped beating for just a minute - Oh wait - It's ok -It's just a flutter LOL- Wonderful goodies !!!I am an avid stitcher - wantobequilter -I am currently working on a flower garden hexi quilt & a small lap quilt for my daughter.

beaquilter said...

I'm part of the blog hop too but I sure am participating too! I follow your blog already, and this would be a cute bundle to get.... who doesn't love free stuff!

Mary@QuiltGenius said...

I like beets. Just kidding! LOL

I have lived in Ohio for the past 6 years and still absolutely cannot stand the cold winters. (I'm from Louisiana). The more time I can spend with a quilt on my lap the better. :)

Very generous giveaway, Judy. I think you know plenty about me, but I will throw in the fact that along with the quilting, baking and soapmaking--I play the violin. : )

Melinda said...

I have officially been quilting just over a year and have already built up a pile of UFO's! I really have completed some though! About 12 I think!

Cherry said...

Great give-away bundle! I've been quilting for 7 years and just love to keep learning; the last couple of years have taken me into art quilting, especially paints and dyes. I'm starting to follow your wonderful blog. I too am part of the Blog Hop Party. Have a lovely day!

LJ said...

I love giveaways - thanks.

I wanted to comment on the Taxi Ride story from yesterday. I've read this before but it's such a wonderful heart-warming story; perfect for the Christmas season. I love inspiring stories.

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

I am a fairly new follower that resides in California. I have been quilting for about 9 years but have been sewing for 45 years. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway!

StitchinByTheLake said...

What nice gifts Judy - they would certainly be fun to win. :) A bit about myself.....been quilting since 1995 but still can't get that darn quarter inch to behave! blessings, marlene

Gene Black said...

Great prize package.

I have been quilting since 2008. I have designed fabric (that I had printed myself -- I would love to find a company to take me on as a designer.)
I have written one pattern - self published....

oops, I think I ran over the "tidbit" amount!

What a generous Santa on this blog. Thank you for a chance to win so many thoughtful gifts. This is certainly a nice assortment for a blog giveway. I live in Sonora, CA and just make pieced quilts. I have worked since I turned 20 and now I am an older woman of 62. I was laid off because of the slow economy and find I have lots of free time to quilt and enjoy blogs. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

MooseStash Quilting said...

What a wonderful assortment for any quilter. I have been quilting for about 12 years now, and am about ready to take that big step into the teaching world. I was thilled with the fact that the past 2 classes I taught yielded no one running out the door crying! Something I have wanted to do after a few classes I took! My goal is to teach and make em laugh. It's a great combo and what life is all about!

Joanie's Quilts said...

Hello Judy C I am another NC quilter! I have seen much advertising for the 100 Quilt Blocks. I must have - :).

I love to quilt and watch movies. More about me at my blog. Hope to see you there.

Marjorie said...

What great colors. I'm sure that fabric would enjoy hanging out at my house. I love applique, like hand quilting and hate piecing. I'm addicted to batiks. There's a line-item in the budget just for fabric.

erica said...

Chiska said...

What a wonderful package! I'm currently sitting with my 3 year old on my lap weaving my head back and forth so I can see past her head to the computer screen.

I love all the things you are giving away! Thank you. I have been sewing ever since I was old enough to reach the peddle on mom's old peddle machine. I got interested in making quilts when my daughter was small and I still love making them. Have a great Christmas! Joyce Carter ccarter13@windstream.net

Michelle Olsen said...

This is such a great giveaway - the fabrics are pretty, the notions are useful, and the button wreath ornament appeals to my love of vintage/retro/kitchy things. My tree has owl ornaments, wooden toy ornaments, and ones handmade by my two daughters. It's loud, tacky, and I love it so much! Thanks for the giveaway!

karenfae said...

What a neat giveaway! So much fun and creativity to be had!! I am a free spirit when it comes to crafting, I love to try pretty much anything- quilting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, tatting, needlepoint, cross stitch, quilling, scrapbooking... you probably get the picture. Quilting has recently become my first and foremost love though. I'm an addict! I've had trouble pulling myself away to do the boring, everyday chore stuff. Sewing forever, housework whenever! A line I picked up from Studio Kat Designs that is oh so true!!

Lise said...
