Architextures for the Blog Hop Party

Picture from Heidi at Fabric Mutt
I have another giveaway, it seems appropriate in the holiday season. Michele is celebrating her 5th Blog Birthday at Quilter's Gallery and since 5 years of blogging is pretty cool, I am joining in.

My giveaway is a 17 piece Fat Quarter Bundle of Architextures, with is the brand new line by Carolyn Friedlander that I have been waiting for - it is just wonderful.

To win, you need to leave me one comment sharing your favourite book, audio book or television series or at least one you might recommend to me. I hope to spend some time over the holidays relaxing under a quilt and would love some ideas to go along with all the movie suggestions I received last week.

Picture from Heidi at Fabric Mutt
This giveaway is open until 9 pm MST Saturday, December 15, 2012 and is open to anyone anywhere in the world. In fact, I don't actually have this fabric in hand, as I had hoped to give away another thing that is still in transit. So I went shopping for this wonderful prize and once I have a winner, I will have the lovely Amanda from Westwoodacres send it to you directly (this is not a sponsored giveaway). I borrowed these beautiful pictures from Heidi who blogs at Fabric Mutt - not only is she really nice, she also takes excellent pictures.

**** I will pick the winner by random number generator after the draw closes. Please make sure you have an email attached to your profile or leave it in your comment. If there is no way to contact you I will immediately draw again. This fabric is excellent, you don't want to miss out. ****

Michele at Quilter's Gallery now has a list of all the bloggers who are celebrating with her up on this page. There will be many excellent giveaways to go and enter and I wish you good luck.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

P.S. That other thing I ordered to give away is great too. Watch this space, I will give it away after it arrives, maybe to celebrate New Years.

**** This contest is now closed. I will draw and announce the winner in the morning. ****
Best,

Leanne

Downton Abbey for sure! I also like any of the murder mysteries by Sue Grafton. It's hard to pick a favourite.

barb said...

I love karen barper books babscorbitt@gmail.com

free indeed said...

Downton Abbey was great. Person of Interest and Monk are both feel good detective shows. I haven't read a book in a while to offer suggestions, but I always love the classics...I look for the oldest bindings on the library shelves.

DeborahGun said...

My favourite TV series is Spooks from the BBC - and there are 10 seasons so it should keep you going for a while! Thanks for the amazing giveaway

I like 1Q84 haruki murakami I listened to it as an audio book it is a little hard to get into at first but once you are it is hard to stop listening. My husband even liked it and that is saying a lot.

Revenge is a great television series. It had me hooked from the first episode. Can't get enough of it.

I'd recommend anything by Michael Ondaatje, but especially In The Skin of the Lion, his books absorb me, a brilliant read.

Michell said...

Downton Abbey is great and have seen all 3 series and waiting for the Xmas special now

andri. said...

Awesome giveaway! My favourite tv series is how i met your mother!:)

scissor.needle.thread said...

Oh my god, it is so difficult to pick one favourite book or tv show.

I really enjoyed the BBC version of Sherlock, Dr. Who, Dexter, Diary of a Callgirl, True Blood. You probably know all of these but in Germany most TV shows are really crappy so we have to turn to English ones that are not on telly here.

Books... hm, you could try "Let's pretend this never happened".
The Sookie Stackhouse novels, short and entertaining.
Mort or other Terry Pratchett books.
And I really love "Rumo: And his Miraculous Adventures" and "Labyrinth of Dreaming Books" from Walter Moers. They both are just fantastic, very inspiring and the author illustrated them very nicely himself. I absolutely recommend them to everybody and so far everybody loved them.

Angela T. in Guam said...

Favorite book & Movie: Jane Eyre (any version!); favorite TV series (hands down) is NCIS! Thanks for giving us the chance to share the fabric love!

Lucy | Charm About You said...

Books - I just read Kavalier and Clay, Michael Chabon
TV - The Paradise (which is the BBC adaptation of the book The Ladies' Paradise by Emile Zola) and Homeland!

Julie Fukuda said...

Never ask a librarian for her favorite book! I read lots of kid's books C.S.Lewis, Lloyd Alexander, (you can't sell garbage to kids) and I like mysteries, Anne Perry has some good historical ones, then there are quilting stories.. many mentioned already ... actually, I enjoyed reading the suggestions above and wish I had a bigger choice of books in English.

Barb Neiwert said...

What a generous give-away - that collection is awesome. And for an awesome read, I always recommend Traveling With Pomegranates by Sue Monk Kidd - great mother/daughter book.

AuntieCrafty said...

One of my favorite TV series, which was cancelled last year, was "Medium" starring Patricia Arquette.

Mom C said...

My grandson got me hooked on John Flanagan's series the Ranger's Apprentice. Fast, fun read. Thanks.

Hilachas said...

What a generous giveaway, lovely fabric. Right now I'm listening to Robert Parker's "Lullaby" on audio books. I like to listen to audio books while I sew. It's a pretty interesting mystery story. Thanks for the opportunity to win your gveaway.

The only thing I'm watching right now is Revolution on TV - and we waited until the first half of the season was over to start watching. Books. I am reading a Sci-Fi series by Steven Erikson. 10 books! I am on #6, and I think I started two years ago. I have read many others in between, though.

Missenota aka Kristin S. said...

Hello from Minnesota! This is an excellent giveaway; I might actually be drooling. I love audio books with a good reader such as Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" or Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce mysteries - the first one is called, "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie." For series, Downton Abbey, Lonesome Dove, and Band of Brothers are all winners at our house.

JoyceLM said...

One of my favorite TV series is from the BBC - called "New Tricks". It was on our local PBS channel for a few months several years ago & I never forgot it. So one day I looked it up on Amazon.com and learned I could buy it. I now have 8 seasons on DVD. Thanks for the giveaway.

Patricia Lessell said...

My favorite books of all time are written by Marie Bostwick and they are all about quilting and the people around Cobbled Court Quilts and so far she has written 5 books in this series.

Anonymous said...

Books that I've read recently that I loved (most are serious, high-brow literature-- with wonderful plot lines, characters, and senses of "place" and of course very well written): Cutting for Stone; Let the Great World Spin; Istanbul.

Unknown said...

I love Clarice Lispector's short stories, she's Brazilian but I am sure you can get them in English. For a TV series, my favourite is Twin Peaks.

Emily C said...

I watch CSI and criminal minds, I recommend both if you like murder mysteries.

Heather said...

I have two all time favorite books...Little Women and The Hobbit.

Jo said...

For TV shows, I just finished watching all of season 1 of "Homeland" and can heartily recommend it if you like dizzying plot twists and lots of suspense. Plus Clare Danes as the most intense CIA agent ever. For books, one book I loved this year was Lauren Groff's "Arcadia" about a boy who grew up in a utopian commune and then was thrust into the larger world.

Michelle G said...

Anything by Jennifer Chiaverini. She writes Quilt themed books and they are excellent.

Lori said...

I love The Office and The Mentalist! Thanks for the chance to win!

Books...I haven't read it yet but it is on my to read list is The Breadwinner Trilogy by Deborah Ellis.

I recently found out Maeve Benchy passed this year. I love her books and short stories. Irish humor that makes you belly laugh. Wonderful giveaway, thank you.

Deb said...

I'm re-watching Sex and the City right now - still classic!

Laren said...

One of my all time favs is The Raj Quartet by Paul Scott. Series of 4 books, beginning with The Jewel in the Crown. It was made into a mini series in 1984 which I would also recommend (as its an historical series of novels, the show holds up really well after so much time!!)

Barb and Sharon said...

We are watching, Last Resort. It is not a holiday or hotel show but a submarine/navy show. Very interesting and we watch it online since we gave up cable!!!
Barb@Witsend

ann said...

Dexter fur shure , Sherlock Holmes with Benedict Cumberbatch (two seasons I think) , Downton Abbey I'm sure you've already been given that one, books oh I am a Canadian lit girl... The Margaret's , Lawrence and Atwood, Alice Monroe , all,of Robertson Davies , John Irving (well he lives in T.O. Even if he is a New Hampshire guy). I too have been seeking out some good reading for the break, can't wait to leave the political wranglings of education in Ontario behind for a couple of weeks and sink into some good stories. Merry Merry Leona good luck on your quest for good entertainment

Mary said...

Thanks for the give away. I just finished the last of the Longmire books by Craig Johnson. I really enjoyed them.

Melissa said...

I really like the Fountainhead - I don't necessarily subscribe to all the "ideals" supposedly represented in the book, but I like the story!

Mary E. Stephens said...

The first and best book I'd recommend is the King James Bible. Not only is it scripture, but the language is exquisitely beautiful. :-)

Vivian said...

When I sit down and get all comfy to do some handwork, I enjoy throwing in one of my DVDs of Bones. Gosh I enjoy that show! Thanks for the chance.

WeaslerQuilts said...

If you're looking for something light hearted and fun, I highly recommend watching The Big Bang Theory. It's my favorite :) As far as books go, one of my favorites is The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. It's written for upper elementary/middle school aged kids, but it's great! I actually probably wouldn't even recommend it to kids, it's got stuff that they wouldn't understand in it. Any of Nancy Farmer's books are great though!

Melissa said...

As books go i would really suggest anything by Tamora Pierce, I just love getting lost in her fantasty land. I also love how all of her books tie in to the same world. Kresley Cole is another author that i would suggest, especially her immortals after dark series (warning, romance novels)

quiltmom anna said...

Hi Leanne,
Favorite series- old or new- we have The Newsroom on PVR to watch and watched the first one of the 11 shows recently. It is terrific. Downton Abbey is very popular and they are opening the third season in January. We also loved the show Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire but they are quite graphic in places- not something you want to watch when young children are around..
Lots of great stuff to watch.
Regards from Edmonton,
Anna

Cherise said...

I've always loved Criminal Minds. :)Thanks for such an awesome giveaway! Happy Holidays to You! :)

I am not much of a TV person. I Like Clive Cussler and Robin Cook novels. Thank you for the fantastic giveaway! jbechosend at sbcglobal dot net

Madeleine said...

I love "A Ring of Endless Light" by Madeleine L'Engle. I like most of her books (which is good since I was named after her!), but that one is my favorite. So much wisdom.

Thanks for the chance to win such beautiful fabric! One of my all time favourite books is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Chezrooblog at gmail dot com

Tilkunviilaaja said...

Thank you for the great giveaway! The fabrics look gorgeous. For a relaxing time over the holidays, I would recommend Drop Dead Diva. To read, check out Dick Francis' books. They always feature horses in some way. The earliest novels are the best.

Sarah said...

I love to read so I have a few suggestions for you:

For light reading I love anything by Lisa Jewell. She writes mainly romances but they often have a melancholy edge to them which I think sets her apart from most of the 'chick lit'.

I've recently enjoyed Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch (and its sequels Moon over Soho and Whispers Underground) which are about a young police officer in London who encounters a ghost and finds himself recruited by a small branch of the Metropolitan police that deals with the supernatural

And finally I love the novels of Jasper Fforde - they are really difficult to explain his most popular series feature Thursday Next, Literary detective who can enter books. They are bomnkers but brilliant and the first one is called The Eyre Affair.

Sarah said...

The "autobiography" ME CHEETA is a most amusing read, all about the star studded scandalous life of the original Cheeta the Chimp from Tarzan movie fame... :-)

Mommarock said...

I read The Hunger Game Trilogy. All three books three days in a row. Couldn't put them down.. AWESOMENESS!!

kathy said...

I have been enjoying the TV Series The Good Wife. And I always enjoy Project Runway! Haven't been reading too much lately, so I don't have any current recommendations. Thanks for the opportunity! I Love Architextures!

Dorian said...

I love the mystery books of Terri Blackstock. She is a Christian writer and her books are just fabulous. Thanks for a great giveaway.

MC said...

I would recommend curling up with Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for a great holiday :)

As far as reading goes, I am currently revisiting some works by Agatha Christie and I have to say I'm in love all over again. They are quick, snappy, and smart. The perfect little break from the ordinary.

Angie said...

Love that fabric!

My favorite book series is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Part history lesson, part action movie, part most perfect and real love story you have ever read!

I am about to embark on reading them all again... :)

Joyce Carter said...

This is great I read all of the comments and now I have a list of my own. I love to read a favorite author is Lyn Andrews, she writes about Liverpool families the good and the bad during the depression era. I think my favorite T.V. series is Flashpoint. It is so well done and tonight is the final episode. I love the cast. (A police drama that is full of suspense and not predictable.)

Kathy said...

I recently read the Maze Runner trilogy and loved them all.

Kathie (Prairie Stitcher) said...

Those are lovely fabrics and I'd love to win them. My favorite book right now is (beside the scriptures) anything by Louis L'Amour. I know, I know.....but I've been studying writing in order to write what I want in a book and he has a style that is interesting and exciting. And I love cowboys and horses. Right. This is a girl who loves Shakespeare, etc., and who had read James Joyce and other weird authors....and now I'm reading Louis L'Amour. Who'd a thunk it? Thanks for letting us visit and carry on. Come by and visit me too and follow when you have time. Tell me what you like most to read. Do you have a kindle or something like that? I do....it makes it so easy to devour an author, bit by bit. I read all I could find of Maeve Binchy, too. Fascinating.

My favorite book series will always be Harry Potter. But if want something a little more grown up, try The Pillars of the Earth

Aimee said...

I am rereading Gone with the Wind, Scarlett, & Rhett Butler's People right now; they're a pretty good trio of books. The only TV show I really watch is The Walking Dead. Awesome show if you're into that genre.

I just finished watching the 1st season of Copper and I enjoyed it. Here is the description:
In its most significant original programming commitment to date, BBC AMERICA has announced its first original scripted drama series, “Copper”. The 10 episode series, which centers on a young Irish cop operating in the immigrant communities of 19th century New York, is co-created by Tom Fontana (OZ, Homicide: Life on the Street, St. Elsewhere) and Will Rokos (Monster’s Ball, Southland).

I read a lot of series. The last one I read, and can read over and over, is the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Claire. It's teen lit but it sucks you in.

One of our latest favorite shows is "Lark Rise to Candleford". I think it only runs on public television in the US (or maybe it's on BBC America).
