A bit of Doe for Giveaway Day



Welcome! If you are new here, I'm Leanne, I live in Alberta, Canada and I blog about quilting. I hope you will poke around and get to know me a little, maybe by checking out the My Quilts page here. I'll  show off a few of them here for you too.


For Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day I have that beautiful bundle of 11 fat quarters of fabrics from Doe and Architextures both designed by Carolyn Freidlander. I purchased the bundle from Daryl over at Fabric Spark and she is holding it to ship it off to the winner for me anywhere in the world, as soon as the draw is done.

Untitled

I have to tell you that these fabrics are even better in person. Surprisingly they are available in Canada (and the U.K.) early and I have a bunch of my own already.

Reflection

***** contest is now closed ******
To enter to win, please leave me one comment only. I'm hoping for some time to relax over the holidays, so please share with me an idea for a new book to read or a movie or TV show to watch, or maybe your favourite music for me to load on my iphone. I will leave the giveaway open until 10:00 pm. MST on Friday December 12, 2014 and I'll announce the randomly drawn winner on Saturday the 13th.

All the Colours

Two things:

  • Leave me a way to find you. If you don't have a email connected to your commenter profile, leave your email in your comment. If I cannot find you, I will draw another winner.
  • I won't be responding to the comments but please know that I will be checking out your suggestions and I thank you for sharing them with me.

Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day is on all week, so you will want to visit back there often to enter new giveaways as they are entered.

And feel free to come back to check here on Tuesday (tomorrow) to join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow and I for the December the Scraptastic Tuesday link too, there are fantastic prizes for it too.

Best,

Leanne

love your quilts. I recommend a book called "the Burning Bed" by Michael Connelly it is a Harry Bosch book #19 but they are all stand alone books you don't have to read the previous 18 to like it! if you do like it though you might want to go back and read the earlier books.

Cheryl said...

I would recommend The Pillars of the Earth as a great read.

Brenda said...

I just watched Scott and Bailey on Netflix -- a British cop show with two woman as the lead characters. Thanks for a chance to win!

Diane said...

I just love your Snowfall quilt (among others)! The bundle you selected is fantastic. Thanks!

greycatquilts.com said...

I'm a giant geek, so I've been watching Arrow and The Flash. I've also been listening to I Am Spock, by Leonard Nimoy.

SuzyMcQ said...

Just discovered the music of Winnie Williams. She is wonderful and I highly recommend a listen! Your chosen bundle, by the way, amazing!

Shelley said...

I love The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom or any of his books really. I also love Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks. They touch your heart and make you think about life and how you live it.

Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl said...

I have really been enjoying reading Outlander. I know it's a bit older, but I just stumbled across it.

Liz Rehrauer said...

The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline was intriguing. If you appreciate children and families you will love it. It's historical fiction. Her research was impeccable.

Andrea York said...

Deep Survival by Laurence Gonzales is a good book-with stories of people who survived life threatening situations.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Ladyquiltsalot said...

I am currently reading A Sudden Light by Garth Stein (author of the Art of Racing in the Rain) and really enjoying it. Thanks for the chance to win

Jennifer said...

Definitely watch Community! It's one of my favorite shows ever.

tiffany said...

Your matchstick quilting is amazing! I've been on a quilt & cook book kick lately, so I don't have a good recommendation for fiction, but for music: give a listen to Boy & Bear. Thanks for the chance! Super bundle.

Debbie said...

Watch the movie '100 foot journey' - based on a book but haven't read that yet to be able to recommend. But LOVE the movie!

Saira p said...

Watch the 'Great British Bake-Off' if you can get it - strangely calming and addictive TV! Thanks

Linda said...

I love the outlander series. Be ready to be a cult follower! Diana Gabaldon is an amazing writer!

Beautiful quilt!

Kristin said...

I loved reading 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog'.

Kathy E. said...

If you haven't read Gone Girl yet, I highly recommend it! It's been out for awhile, but I just finished it last week and it had me glued to the pages. The movie just came out about a month ago, so read the book, then see the flick!

Cherie in St Louis said...

One of my favorite movies is Benny and Joone....a heartwarming family story.

Sandy said...

If you like court room mysteries with lots of twists and turns try the books by Marcia Clark. Another author who writes so you can't put it down is Lisa Scottoline. She also writes a humor column because she misses Erma Bombeck. These columns have been made into books, the first one was Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog. She calls her exes Thing One and Thing Two.

Pam said...

I love Chris Tomlin's new Christmas Album especially the song - On Hallowed Ground - Emmanuel!

We have been watching through the Marvel: Agents of Shield TV show lately. It starts off very poorly, but it gets better.

LynCC said...

My daughter and I recently read "The Orphan Train" - it's one of the latest Newbery books, I think from 2013. There are some good ones in the 2015 batch, too - The Doll Bones, One Came Home both come to mind.

Debby said...

I like Scorpion- a new series for the fall.

andreaf said...

I'm a huge fan of your quilts "Breathe", "Cycles", "Cycles 2" and "Snowfall" and am trying to work up the courage to try to sew something similar myself - I've never sewn circles before!

Of the books I've read recently, I recommend "The Rosie Project" by Graeme Simsion.

Thanks for the giveaway! :-)

Teje Karjalainen said...

Hi Leanne! Thank you for a fantastic give away! I'm looking for to read at Christmas but can't help you with a book (I miss Finnish books now when living in GREECE). One movie I could suggest is 'Saving Mr. Banks'. It's great also for all the family. I hope you haven't seen it yet. And the movie about Beatrice Potter is very good. and that reminded me about one Special book: 'A Fine Romance' by Susan Branch!!! I wish everyone could have this book - it's hand written, illustrated with some photos and just amazing. x Teje

Art by Rhoda Forbes said...

Gorgeous fabrics. I follow your blog and love your quilts. Water for Elephants would be my choice, it is a fabulous read.

Deanna said...

A good book - The Boys in the Boat. It`s about the 1936 US Olympic rowing team. I`m not done yet, but it`s a great read. And not sure if it`s your kind of music, but David Wesley (a Canadian!) has some great a capella music.

Bridget said...

If you want to watch something cute and light, go for Jane the Virgin, a new tv show I watch through hulu.com. (No regular tv at our place.) Thanks for the giveaway!

pkmegs said...

Over the holidays, going to read some Maisie Dobbs mysteries, and catch up on some Downtown Abbey before the new season.

Paula said...

When it comes to relaxing in front of the box I either go for period drams or something crime related. As a big Sherlock fan I recently discovered reruns of Elementary which I really enjoyed. Having already seen the latest series od Downtown I've got the Christmas episode to look forward to over the holidays along with the last series of Dr Who which I've been keeping till then. Thanks for a great giveaway.

Laura Links said...

I love your quilts!
My husband and I just finished watching the British show Broadchurch on DVD and it was so great.
For a book, I'd recommend The Fault in our Stars, a young adult book ...I've read it and, amazingly, so did my husband and we both enjoyed it too...

JaneB said...

This is kind of an older title, but such a great book: Nop's Trials by Donald Mccaig.

CurlyGirlMom said...

Oh, let's see... I can make a bunch of recommendations! If you haven't already watched them, I've been watching a couple of series on Netflix. (I'm not sure if you have it in Canada, but you could always watch them on DVD or something else...) Heartland (A Canadian show, as I'm sure you know.) and Gilmore Girls. Books: The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon ~The absolute best story and characters EVER! Just be warned that you won't get much done until you've finished the book! Plus, there's a new Starz mini-series/show based on the book that's been shockingly good. It really sticks to the story line. Also, The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman. ~AMAZING!

Mel said...

I just finished watching Suits on netflix and can't wait for the next season! hope you have a relaxing holiday :)

I like the BBC series Call the Midwife. I'm reading Open Season by CJ Box. It's about a Wyoming game warden mystery. Hrobbins422 at yahoo

SeeMaryQuilt said...

A friend turned me on to Bojack Horseman on Netflix. It's one season of a cartoon, and definitely not for everyone, but if it's your kind of thing, it's the best.

All of Carolyn's fabric designs are fabulous, and Doe is no exception! I'm currently binge-watching The Good Wife, and I'm hooked, so I highly recommend it!

I just rewatched all three seasons of Veronica Mars - I think there are also books based on the series.

helenjean@midgetgemquilts said...

I really enjoyed "the 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared" by Jonas Jonasson. It starts off reasonably slowly but I got really drawn into. A soft gentle humour.

Molli Sparkles said...

Oh Doe! It's in the wild! I'm nearly finished with a ten part tv show called Gracepoint (based on an English show called Broadchurch), and I am loving it! It's a detective mystery, but full of odd characters and wonderful acting. Highly recommended!

Allison C said...

Can't wait to get my hands on some Doe. I just started watching Orange is the New Black and I'm really liking it so far. I watch while I sew.

Joyce Carter said...

Szamóca said...

Oh, I would be so glad to have them. Try on YouTube: Anna and the Barbies: Márti dala. Though it is in Hungarian, the music is also really good, I think (Starts with "You have to start living, thus you will be able to talk about it...."). Thanks for the chance.

Aunt TC said...

I love your choice of colors. Recently I read, "What Alice Forgot" by L Moriarty (sp). I enjoyed it so much I read every one of her other books. They don't have to be read in any order as they are all sepaprate subjects.

Judy J said...

We are really in to Call the Midwife on Netflix. Great show.

Janet M said...

Movie - American Hustle
TV show - The Good Wife

Your quilts are AWESOME!

Anne Simonot said...

I am reading the well-reviewed Station Eleven and enjoying it. My fave read this year was Red Rising by Pierce Brown, a kickass dystopian story. If psychological thriller is more your style, I recommend The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood. annesimonot@sasktel.net

lalaluu said...

Gorgeous solids quilt - I love the quilting! My go-to veg out TV is Masterpiece Theatre! (If you don't have it in Canada through PBS, maybe you can get it through the BBC?)

Chelle said...

I just finished reading The Glass Kitchen. Fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kathy S. said...

I got a fun movie to watch from the library. It was called Crazy, Stupid Love. It's a good romantic comedy. Thanks for the chance to win.

Catherine said...

What a lovely giveaway. When my daughter was off school ill a couple of weeks ago we watched our way through the entire series of Pride and Prejudice, with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy, (in my case probably for about the fourth time). Highly recommended, especially with a glass of wine or a large bar of chocolate.

michelle moen - oldladyrose/missmamiegirl said...

kbzelazny said...

Alicia said...

Prancer, a cute holiday movie to make you smile.

Gayle Fahrion said...

This time of year we like to snuggle in the living room with a fire and watch sappy Christmas movies on Halmark and UPtv. We usually go to bed giggling at ourselves for blubbering like babies.

Lia*s Handmades said...

I caught up on 5 seasons of The Walking Dead within 3 weeks, it's addictive, although maybe not something to watch over Christmas lol!

Thanks for the chance to win!

rosi w. said...

I have been rewatching Call the Midwife. If you haven't checked it out yet, I highly recommend it!

Have you read the stories associated with the blocks in the farmers wife quilt book?
Thanks for hosting this give away. Mrscummings2u at Gmail dot com

beth said...

I love Alexander McCall Smith's series, The #1 Ladies Detective Agency. Beautiful quilts!

Heather62 said...

If you haven't read Sandra Dallas I recommend all her books.

ConGhin said...

I didn't see my post show up, so I'm going to try it again. Have to recommend Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) as a must read. She has written two adult suspense novels, Cuckoo Calling and Silkworm, that just proves what a terrific writer she is for all ages. I just started following your blog a couple months ago and was really inspired by your scrap boxes in your last post. Love how your gray scale quilt is coming together - that is my next to do.

Born4Travel said...

A wonderful read. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
by Mary Ann Shaffer

Amy said...

I recommend Orphan Train, a very interesting Minnesota based historical fiction.

Leila said...

One of our favorite family Christmas movies growing up was Bob Hope's Lemon Drop Kid. Gangsters dressing up as Santa Clauses for a con. Classic. :)

Jenny said...

Thanks for the chance. I recently watched the movie "In a World..." on Netflix and loved it.

KathleenD said...

Your quilts are beautiful and truly striking! I especially love All the Colours and the Muse quilts!!!
Your giveaway bundle is lovely. I hope I'll be your lucky winner!
The best new TV program I've encountered in a long while is Madame Secretary with Tea Leoni and Bebe Neuworth. It's intelligent and entertaining. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!

Victoria said...

My favourite music for totally relaxing 'me time' - and that means no small people around to interrupt! - is old choral music. Tallis or palestrina - probably quite niche, but a definite love for me!

Joy said...

We've been watching Mr. Selfridge on Netflix. It's loosely based in fact. I love looking at the fashion. I loved the hats and slim long skirts and coats of the era.

Thanks for this very generous giveaway. I love these fabrics.

I don't watch TV, so I can't help you there. But, if you have never heard of The Piano Guys, then you need to do so right now! They are so talented and produce such amazing music! They combine classical music with today's music (for example, they combined Vivaldi's "Winter" with the ever popular "Frozen" theme song.). They even have a You Tube channel, so I suppose I can help you with videos after all. LOL

Thanks for sharing your lovely quilts. I just saw the movie Austenland on one of the movie channels & it was so much fun to watch. My local library has it on DVD so it's not a new film & may be available at your local library too. And thanks for the chance to win.

HELLO, maybe you'd like Yo Yo Ma's cello suites with a hot chocolate by the Christmas Tree!
Thanks for sharing! MERRY CHRISTMAS !

Dan Brown's books are good and I love to watch American TV shows like "Person Of Interest"

Renee said...

Best music I can recommend is Pentatonix--they are fantastic. Loooove them.

Copper Patch said...

I LOVE this rang of fabric.
I've really enjoyed the first two seasons and the other night I watched a three part series called Prey which was good.
Thanks,

I love watching "Scandal" at the moment...

I recommend reading anything by Rebecca Solnit.

You asked a tough question. I can't really read any more, because I fall asleep due to medications I take. I can usually stay awake for Grim, a TV show on Friday nights, but only because my husband helps me by watching me like a Hawk. If I have time, I would like to watch the Craftsy classes I'm signed up for. cdahlgren at live dot com

Beautiful quilts, Leanne! And a generous giveaway! My recommendation for an entertaining movie would be, The Great Seduction! Quite possibly it appeals a lot to those of us with east coast humour, but I think it is universally hilarious! Enjoy your holidays!

Didn't see my first comment posted so will do it again (I forgot to included my email address on it anyway). I recommend the Rippington's, Kilamanjaro for music, if you like jazz, while soaking in a bubble bath; for movie, something like When Harry Met Sally or You've Got Mail while cuddled up in your favorite quilt, with a glass (bottle?) of wine - and of course, you don't want to forget that lovely smelling candle. Hope you have a nice, relaxing time! Love, love, love your creations. ktsquiltdreams at gmail dotcom

I loved the book The Narrow Road to the Deep North.

Anita said...

Read Olive Kitteridge or watch it on HBO, really good.

Knitopia said...

I like the band First Aid Kit.

MarMavi said...

Love your quilts!
Game of Thrones on HBO is a great series. If you haven't read it, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is one of the most captivating books I've ever read...I'm also really enjoying music by Pentatonix right now:) Have a relaxing Holiday time!

Indianna said...

the series by Jean Aule The Clan of The Cave Bear are a good series of books.

Right now I recommend tuning into some Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It is currently being played over and over in our house. Tis the season : )

jmniffer said...

I enjoy The Piano Guys music for quilt time listening. Need some extra of that this time of year.

Wild Irish said...

Something to watch is the Irish version of "The Fall" or Love/Hate cracking drama and to read Buried Angels by Camilla Lackberg

Diane Beavers said...

Leanne, A movie would chill you out for a bit that I love is "Transendence" starring Johnny Depp, who is curious about how the Universe evolved....and he's easy on the eyes:). THank you for your quilting inspiration, I love your style. Doe is a collection I've been drooling over and would love have it in my hands. Thank you so much
