BLoG HoP- Day 3!

It's My Day!
And I'm totally exhausted from tying up loose ends for this pattern. 
But it was all worth it- I think. I surely hope you like your FREE PDF Pattern, I had so much fun creating it, and I just LOVE how it turned out! But before I get to that, I need to do my shpeal.....:)-is that even a word? ... know what?......at 2am, it is!
(P.S. having a glitch with my PDF Google Host and posting this PDF for you. I'll get it up ASAP!)

For the blog hop this year, we are doing a little Q & A session:
What is your favorite holiday food? Pumpkin Pie Baby! And peppermint Hot Chocolate... yum!
Does your family have a favorite holiday tradition? We love to watch The Charlie Brown's Christmas special all cozy in our PJ's, and decorating the tree while listening to old Christmas music... you know like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby. 
What's your favorite holiday movie? I'm with Jacquelynne Steves (the noble wife) on this one.... ELF! We probably watch it more than once during the month of December! My 5 yr. old has been saying,
"..... Son of a Nutcracker!"
since he could speak basically. Ok, maybe I shouldn't encourage..... but coming out of his little mouth, it makes us all laugh no matter what season it is!
What's your favorite holiday song? Ray Charles- Winter Wonderland
Do you make many holiday presents? Last year I made quilted sun glass cases for all my girlfriends, Mother, Mother In-law. And I love making home made caramel apples all blinged out with edible glitter and yummy toppings! (My friend Kathleen and I do it on the side..... that's where my blog name came from ;) 
Would you prefer a large fully decorated tree or one like Charlie Brown's tree? Can't I have one of each?
Do you like a big family gathering at the holidays or do you prefer a small dinner followed by hot chocolate by the fire? I love being just with my little family for Christmas eve, and Christmas morning, however, I come from a rather LARGE family (youngest of 9) so I really miss caroling with them and the annual Family Christmas Party, and seeing all the new babies and just really miss seeing the faces of the people I love so dearly.  This time of year always seems to amplify that feeling, doesn't it? 
And now,  my secret word for the Henry Glass giant prize pack giveaway  is......  MASHED POTATOES
(FYI: you need to gather all the Secret Words from all the designers and list them on the Henry Glass website)  

Ok, here's my free pattern... This is something you can make for your best girlfriend, Mother,daughter, grand daughter, and while you're at it... one for yourself!



It Looks something like this...




Here are the other Fabulous Henry Glass Designers for you to check out today as well!......
Enjoy!


 And Me!

VickiT said...

Had to laugh at the 'son of a nutcraker' comment. Isn't it bad how as adults we KNOW a child should probably not say things like that but we still think it is just so cute we allow it? LOL

Wow. That bag pattern looks just amazing. Thank you SO much. Is there anywhere we can see a picture of this bag? Being one of those visual type people, I'd love to see a picture of it. It looks like it would be an adorable purse for sure.

Have a wonderful holiday season.
