  1. I am enjoying this blog hop and looking foward to the book.
    Holiday traditions? Ideally, start my shopping early, decorate, make a special ornament for each special family member or friend.
    In actuality, I rush around at the last minute...

  2. I am going to the Macy Thanksgiving parade! So much fun to see those huge immense balloons traveling down the streets! Can you tell that I'm excited?

  3. This will be the first time we will be spending the holidays away from home. We will be visiting my husbands family and all six siblings will be together for the first time in more than 40 years. Anxious and nervous at the same time!

  4. Ooo, I love your filler row! It would make a great column quilt too. When our children were growing, we opened one gift from a family member on Christmas Eve, and then the others on Christmas Day. It helped to ease the frenzy of anticipation.

  5. Our family tradition, as we are a blended family, and have to share time, is to meet on Christmas Eve for a light meal and gifts at Nana’s House. On Christmas morning we meet at the home of our children who have a child, for breakfast and seeing her enjoy Christmas at home. Later that day, they go to Papa’s house for Christmas dinner. This way we each have family time alone with our children, and we join for the granddaughter. It has worked for us for all the years we have had a grandchild to share

  6. I enjoyed making a row quilt from the first book, and it looks like I will enjoy the same with this book. My fun for the holiday is to spend time with friends and then do some shopping. It is all fun because it is not work.

  7. Thanks for this chance, Betsy. I've loved getting to know you and see your blocks during the BH sew along! I am Canadian, so we have already had our Thanksgiving up here, but I am really looking forward to making a few purchases on Black Friday which I have never done before. Have a great weekend!!

  10. Molly makes a perfect model for your row! This Thanksgiving since we are going to our in-laws home for dinner, I'm going to spend the weekend making a variety of cookies to take. I'm not known for my cooking skills so I thought cookies would be a nice addition!

  16. The best blogs have furry helpers!! I’ll need this book to go with the first one, which I love. As for Christmas traditions, we have Christmas Day myself, my husband and son with my parents and 1 cousin. It’s small but we’re a small family, I have the only grandchild on both sides and both our sisters have stopped speaking to almost all of their families. We always have an open door policy and more than enough food for friends and family to join us. It’s nice and easy for my parents who are in their early 80’s and live around the corner, they can enjoy and not have to clean up after.

  17. This year for thanksgiving all of my cousins on my mother's side of the family are getting together. We have rented a place, have a menu and a plan. Big screen TV to watch the game. Games for the kids to play. A projector to show old pictures thru out the dinner. Bonnietr@aol.com

  19. Your row is wonderful, very traditional just like the holidays. One of the funniest Christmas traditions was driving to my grandparents house for Christmas vacation to be with family. I even got to sleep under the tree one year. My tradition now is to make almond bark candy for my family and friends. It was my grandma’s favorite.

  27. Great minds think alike. We have picked out the same rows as favorites. But when I actually get the book, oh my who knows. Your row will be a great blender row. I'm so glad for these, you actually see more of the quit that way.
    Now for Molly, she is gorgeous. Is she a rag doll cat? we had one that was the spitten image of her.
    friendliest cat we have ever had, and she is sorely missed. Give your baby/boss a good petting for me.

Hot chocolate and Mrs. Claus' cookies enticing all while on the train. The grandkids are pretty excited!!

  64. Probably our longest running tradition is to be a Secret Santa for someone in our church family that is either elderly or in the midst of a health or family crisis. We bring a gift in secret for the 12 days leading up to Christmas and then reveal who we are on December 24th. We bring a gift, leave it at the door, ring the bell and run fast! I started participating about 20 years ago when my first child was itty-bitty and I think we've only missed two Christmases in that time. It is a great way for your children to see and feel how much joy they can bring others and that giving truly does make you feel better than receiving! They are teenagers and older now and still look forward to being a Secret Santa.

  65. Love your row! I would say the most fun tradition I have is filling Christmas stockings. It doesn't matter than my kids are all grown & have kids of their own. They all get excited opening those stockings every year.

  81. Well, we do all the truly traditional things, but then last year we added this fun gift game. You wrap a multitude of tiny fun gifts in a saran wrap ball. You just start in the middle with one gift and keep adding more and more rounds of wrap and more and more gifts. Then you sit in a circle and pass the saran wrap ball around like a hot potato. Set a repeating timer so you know when to pass the ball. You get to keep all the prizes you unwrap, or you may trade with a willing partner. The littles had the greatest time and have requested this again. The adults rather loved it too. soardkgatfusedotnet

  83. I really like your row, Betsy. Flying Geese have always been a favorite of mine, even before I started quilting.
    One tradition we have is decorating cut-out Christmas cookies. When my son was still at home, he would help. But my husband has always been there to contribute. He puts a funny spin on his decorations, and I love seeing what he can come up with.

  100. Christmas traditions for me include making fruitcake from the Antoinette Pope recipe--with lots of brandy.

  109. One of the holiday traditions I enjoy is making a pillowcase/Santa sack for each of my eight grandchildren. It saves time wrapping gifts and I choose fabric each year to reflect their age and interests at the time. As their collection grows, I encourage their parents to feel free to donate any the children have outgrown. The grandkids love to come in and guess which one is theirs on Christmas Day.

  124. My grandmother started a tradition with my mom, which continues with daughter now 27! We have a little doll which we tie tot he trunk to our Christmas tree trunk before any other ornaments are hung. My mom would have been ninety so her bisque doll has been on 90 trees. Mine is a Ginny doll and this will be it’s 60th tree, and my daughter's is a little girl wearing a winter white coat carrying a wreath which now goes on her tree 🌲 at her home.

  125. My favorite tradition is when all of my family members gather together for Thanksgiving, and I get to see people I haven't seen in a long time.

  126. I have been making a pillowcase to use as a Santa sack for each of my eight grandchildren. Each one is made with their age and interests in mind and they are excited to arrive on Christmas Day and find their pillowcase full of gifts.

  135. We are having a quiet day at home. The family is scattered now, and that makes it hard to get together.

  136. I will spend time with my family and my friends, to go to the markets of Christmas, to make patchwork, anything fabulous but to benefit from the magic from Christmas, perhaps with your book perhaps with your book which I will adore to win ;-) Thanks for the game ( anne.troalen at wanadoo.fr )

  137. I have two favorite traditions:
    The first one is that I have purchased my girls Christmas ornaments every year since they were born. Now that they’re older, they get to choose. When they get married, or move out, their box of ornaments will go with them so they will have a tree full of memories. The second one is we put up the manger, hide the Wise Men and baby Jesus. Starting on December 1st, Mary and Joseph make the long trek through our living room to the manger. On Christmas Eve we read Luke 2, then put Jesus in the manger on Christmas Day. Then the Wise Men come for their visit. ��

  143. One of our most fun holiday tradition is to visit Meadowlark Gardens for the Winter Walk of Lights. It's so magical to be there on a crisp winter evening and stroll among the amazing lights.

  152. Our Thanksgiving tradition is to measure each of the grandchildren and make a mark with the name and date on the kitchen wall. This year we celebrated the weekend before Thanksgiving and it was such a pleasure to see the cousins enjoying one another and jostling to see how much they had grown in the past year.

  153. Our plans are rather non-traditional this year. We are visiting our 25-year old son who couldn't get time off work except most of the day on Thanksgiving. We thought we'd go out, but he's a traditionalist, so HE is cooking the turkey for the first time. I sent directions of when to start thawing, and yesterday he asked what size to buy! I was frantically texting to get a fresh one at this point. It is good that we can be together, no matter what happens with the meal! ;) amdezo5 at gmail dot com

  154. For the very first time we are traveling to our sons house. It is going to be different, not having our house full of family. Our tradition is to decorate the tree day after Thanksgiving.

  155. This year I'm only making 2 pies (cream cheese with strawberries and an apple) to take for Thanksgiving dinner with family. I'm also bringing ideas for using panels in quilts - attic window. I'm encouraging family members who don't currently sew to give quilting a try. Together we've made jewelry, painted mandala stones, and made a series of Putz houses. We just enjoy time together creating. Quilting would be another interest to share. Visiting loved ones is always the best part of any holiday.

  156. One off our favorite traditions was to take the kids in their jammies (and a warm quilt) in the car to enjoy the holiday lights. We'd get back just in time to tuck them in bed! They still talk about those times and now we look forward to doing it with our grandkids someday. duchick at gmail dot com
