"You'd think it was winter" Giveaway!

Oh, my, here in Minnesota it was in the 60's mid-day on Thanksgiving and then about noon the wind came up. Then about 4:00 p.m. snowflakes started to fall. And the temperatures began to tumble. And oh, how it blew late last night!!! Yes, Winter was making it's entrance for sure! That got me to thinking about my giveaway and that I promised to share more of Jacquelynne's fabrics. This panel is from her Joy~Peace~Noel~Love fabric line from last year. I gave away one of the panels and some fabric bundles back then. Last night, I realized that there had been three panels, so I am keeping one for me and someone is going to win this one...........

I'm also adding some yardage in the snowflake prints and the winter critters fabrics. You will be able to make something fun and festive for this coming Christmas!!

And speaking of Christmas, I finished decorating the tree for our living room on Wednesday evening. It's almost identical to the way I decorated it last year. There's a reason for that but I'll share that another time. I just enjoyed seeing it decorated. I love the tree at night. This photo was taken mid-afternoon on Thanksgiving and that dry grass you see through the window almost looks like snow but it's not.
I just wish I could get a better picture of the tree. This photo really doesn't capture the "magic" of the tree that you can see "in person". I like to put my tree up early and I keep it up long after Christmas so that I can enjoy the magic for as long as possible!
 
I hope that you all enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving. My husband baked the turkey and he felt it wasn't quite as tasty as usual. We are thinking we will try an organic turkey next year. His sister brought the pumpkin pie. It was a big 12" pie and everyone said it was very good! For the first time ever, I skipped the pie due to my gluten/egg sensitivities. However, there were Hershey's Kisses so I did not suffer. LOL!
Sooo............... How can you win that panel and fabrics? Well, leave your name and then tell me your favorite winter food treat.  I love a good cup of hot cocoa. And today will be a good day for at least a cup or two!
Have a good day!  And if you are out shopping today, I hope that you find all that Santa needs to bring!
Sandi

Love the panel and fabrics and your tree. My dad used to bring home these "buckets" of local chocolate candy. it was the best candy ever. We looked forward to it and munched on it constantly during the season.

Mimi said...

We awoke to a Winter Storm here in Northwestern Ontario... it is close to a white-out!!! Love the snow and I can't wait until there is enough to go x-country skiing!!!

Kate said...

Jacquelynne has designed a beautiful fabric line! My favourite winter food is home made soup.

Anything Christmas seems to get my attention!! Really wish I had the gene in me to be able to decorate a tree to look as good as yours. My favorite winter food would be a bowl of Tomato soup and a couple slices of toast!! Thanks!!

When the weather turns cool here in the deep south, we love to enjoy soups. Love the panel. So glad you had a pleasant Thanksgiving.

Needled Mom said...

Ha....I thought you had gotten a good snow from the photo!

I always look forward to a good pot roast or braised ribs when the weather turns chilly.

Bobbie Bentneedle said...

My all time favorite winter-only treat is Frito Chili Pie... Baked to a yummy melty cheesey combination of gooey fritos and crisp toasted ones. Add a glass of milk, and I'm 6 years old again with Mama in the kitchen!

Donna said...

My favorite winter treat is a fresh out of the oven slice of apple cake with a tall mug of spiced chai latte. Your tree looks wonderful. Mine goes up tomorrow when I have. I'm getting excited!

luv2quilt2 said...

My very favorite winter treat is pumpkin pie! From September on, I really crave it and enjoy every bite I can get.

dortha said...

My favorite winter treat is hot soup and corn sticks. It is chilly here in Alabama but no snow.

tisme said...

My favorite is actually 2, I like my hot chocolate with marshmellow, but my Reeses peanut butter trees for Christmas is tops!

annemarie said...

I love homemade chicken noodle soup as a winter treat - canned soup just does not do anything for me!

Kathryn said...

I love egg nog at Christmas. I remember making it in Home Ec class in 8th grade.

Diane Wild said...

Such a cute panel. Winter treat? Oh...something chocolate. Thanks for the chance to win your giveaways.

Christine M said...

I love home made soup, any kind! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

Karen O said...

I rarely bake, so my favorite winter treat is Spice Cookies - a family favorite.

Winona Thompson said...

I am Winona. I love it when it gets cool enough to have chili. I cook it in a crock pot and can smell it all day. Since I have to eat gluten free. I use tortilla chips in it instead of crackers.

Janice said...

i too love home made soup in the winter. but a nice winter treat is a good cup of coffee with a little splash of Bailey's. i love the snowman panel.

quiltinggrammy said...

Chili is my favourite winter comfort food. Cooked all day in the crockpot, makes the house smell so good when you come in from outdoors. The panel would certainly be a good project to work on during those long cold winter days.

lynaeve said...

I like a good cup of hot cocoa too. thanks for the chance!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite winer treat is chai tea latte.
our tree look beautiful Sandi.

AKnativewoman said...

You ask for a favorite winter treat, well, for me, that would be a slice of freshly baked egg bread (thank goodness for bread makers), and a big cup of fresh brewed Starbucks! Thanks for the opportunity to win such wonderful fabric, and don't worry, your tree looks lovely!

My favourite winter treat is a bowl of homemade soup with homemade bread still warm from the oven. Eaten while watching an old film in front of my log burner.

Julie said...

My favorite would be stew. Just is too hot in the summer to make it. Thanks

Linda in NC said...

Your tree is beautiful!

My favorite wintertime food would have to be borscht. And of course the Christmas cookies!

Ellee said...

My favorite is homemade soup. Yum! soparkaveataoldotcom

Mommarock said...

I like ice cream in the winter.. not in the summer, but in the winter.. weird I know, but in the summer the milk turns my stomach.

JoyceLM said...

Hi, I'm Joyce. My favorite is fudge - any flavor. I only eat it around Christmas (well I try). Thanks for the giveaway.

magicthimblecreations said...

Hi Sandi, my favorite winter food is my home made chili. I use hot peppers frozen whole from the garden, but no chili powder or cumin. It is so fresh tasting and thick. I am jealous of the snow, but pretty snowman fabric is a nice alternative. Peggy in KY

Marilyn said...

Winter treat? Homemade vegetable soup, fresh baked cinnamon roll, honey ham and peanut brittle. Marilyn

Sally said...

Egg Nog (and also love Truffles!!)

Catskill Quilter said...

My favorite winter treat -- and something that you cannot usually get the rest of the year -- is mincemeat pie! Another thing that I love (and not available year round) are fresh cranberries.

grann616 said...

Oh, my favorite winter treat is the sweet potato casserole. Yes, you can eat it anytime but ohh the calories! Love the giveaway! Sharon Lozano

Gale, Ky quilter said...

My favorite winter time food - actually it's a drink - hot cocoa - with marshmallows on top & cinnamon sprinkled on. That almost makes it a meal, doesn't it? Awesome giveaway - so cute!

barbara woods said...

love hot chocolate and toasted cheese sandwiches

SewLisa :o) said...

Jack wax on snow was one of my favorites till diabetes nixed it from my diet. Now I'll settle for home made All Day Vegetable Beek Soup. Yum!
