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.

My favorite books that I read this year were the series Cinder, Scarlet and Cress by Marissa Meyer. My favorite show right now is Grimm, but I am three episodes behind on the DVR.

Janie said...

Love your quilts and the quilting. Thanks for the giveaway.

Unknown said...

Any of the Tea shop series by De Ann Black if you like short light cozy romances. Love your circle quilt!! Love the colors

Cheri the Quilting Nanny said...

A good movie to watch? How about my two favorites...Long Long Trailer starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnes (not the I Love Lucy series!) Funniest movie ever made! And if you want a good holiday movie..Prancer is my favorite! Thanks for the giveaway

SS said...

I've been reading Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. I highly recommend it; it's not a long book but it's slow reading because it calls for lots of contemplation.

Sylvia said...

I've been hearing a lot of good things about the show MI-5 (aka Spooks)

Exuberantcolor/Wanda S Hanson said...

I just finished "the Kite Runner" and it is an excellent book. Music: Barbra Streisand's new CD "Partners".

Judith, Belfast said...

Loving the soft, peaceful tones of these fabrics. Thanks for such a generous giveaway L! I have the dvds and cheese board already well stocked for some serious movie watching with my girls this Christmas!! Jxo

Becky N said...

I think you should catch some christmas classics!

Steffi´s Candy Quilts said...

Those fabrics are so yummy, I would love to win them. Thank you for the chance!
This time of year I always love to watch Love Actually. And I found a radio station that plays christmas music only. Very nice to get in the right mood. :-)

Patti said...

"How to Get Away With Murder" is a good series if you're in to mysteries!

Anonymous said...

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss is an amazing book, though I have to admit the narration by Nick Podehl really makes it. An audiobook could be great for while you are busy doing other things and I'd highly recommend this one.

Patch the Giraffe said...

Just finished reading "An Unquenchable Thirst" by Mary Johnson. It's a memoir. Although a cup of good tea and book is just good no matter what :)

Miss Alissa said...

The Alexander McCall Smith's #1 Ladies Detective Agency series is really good :)

Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts said...

You are amazing...our family is watching Vikings...such a family show. Oh dear! :)

Crafty Coffin said...

If you like urban fantasy books I think the best series out now is the October Daye books by Seanan Mcguire - protagonist is half-faerie and the books are incredibly well researched when it comes to incorporating the myths and legends about the fae.

Elena said...

I've been watching Sleepy Hollow on huluplus. I love that it doesn't take itself too seriously, though the characters play it straight. It has a really diverse cast and the lead character is a woman. edeloof@gmail.com

Kitty Vane said...

I've been listening to Idina Menzel's Christmas album, Holiday Wishes, a whole lot lately, and I heartily recommend it to everyone. It's such lovely and soothing Christmas music.

Cheryl said...

besides the usual christmas story, carol, etc: Howl's Moving Castle and My Neighbor Totoro are fun and very different that your usual "cartoons"

Mary said...

The Light Between Oceans by M.L.Stedman is just about as good as Doe. Love that bundle. Thanks

Scrappy quilter said...

I would recommend the movie Into the Storm. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

Donna said...

The book Unbroken is riveting, and the movie is coming out on Christmas day as well.

Heather J said...

If you want to learn more about Newfoundland, I really enjoyed Allan Doyle's book. Learned the backstory of the singer from the band Great Big Sea. A wonderful read.

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

I'm enamoured of the Mollie Makes embroidery book at the moment and have been listening to a lot of dance music (David Guetta, Calvin Harris, etc) when I go running. :)

KaliaContiki said...

I highly recommend the author Janet Evanovich. Hilarious, easy reads. Thanks for the giveaway! KaliaContiki@gmail.com

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I guess it wouldn't be relaxing, but for some "edge of your seat" viewing, the current season of Homeland has been amazing!

Toohey said...

So many suggestions here are wonderful, but if you're a sci-fi geek, the show I watch asap is Sleepy Hollow! Thanks for the giveaway.

Dianne W said...

I just got addicted to Game of Thrones - it is or was, definitely not my cup of tea at all, until I watched it and then I was hooked after the first episode. I also love a UK series called Call the Midwife - it's just lovely.

Sara said...

Thank you for the giveaway. I just read a book that has a great story and will also leave you thinking. It's called Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer. You can read more about it at:http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780399167348.

We've been watching Chuck. It's soooo funny!

Jackie's Stitches said...

I just finished The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain. It was wonderful and a quick read! I'd love a chance to win your generous giveaway!

Jocelyn said...

A really fun set of books to read are written by Alan Bradley. They are delightful stories about Flavia, a 9 year old girl who always finds herself in some kind of murder mystery. Very enjoyable and relaxing. Thanks for the giveaway!

Norma's Bag Boutique said...

This is a beautiful Fabric Bundle. I love listening to music while I work. My daughter installed Spodify on my iphone and I'm using it quite a bit. Just a recommendation.

Adrienne said...

Check out Lillehammer on Netflix. It is surprisingly good :) Enjoy your relax time!

Taisia @ Piecing Light said...

I've been reading through Jaran and its sequels by Kate Elliot. Really enjoyable feminist science fiction, with a Mongol-influenced culture.

SimoneV said...

Great giveaway!
One of my favourite books is "The Power Of One" by Bryce Courtenay... I've managed to get most of my family hooked on his many books, but TPOO will always be my favourite. Hope you get some time to enjoy some of these many recommendations!!

Melissa said...

I've been enjoying the Elantra Chronicles by Michelle Sagara.

Unknown said...

The fabrics are such winter fabrics. We don't get that winter here in West Australia

Bethany said...

What a fun idea for comments! A good and easy story I read recently was The Secret Key and What It Unlocked by Louisa May Alcott. Its free for Kindle at Amazon. My husband and I have been watching the series Jeeves and Wooster which is free on HuluPlus. It stars Steven Fry and Hugh Laurie and if you like comedy and don't mind British accents, it's great.

Unknown said...

You should try reading The Rose Garden by Susannah Kearsley, or any of her other books, all of them are really beautiful stories. You will get pulled into the story and you won't want them to end.

Unknown said...

Any of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Enjoy!

charlotte said...

I love the Mitford series by Jan Karon. I have read them all and find them immensely enjoyable.

Audrey said...

Try reading "419" by Will Ferguson (a Canadian award winner), or catch up on Seasons 1 to 4 of Downton Abbey. Season 5 starts next month. These two are quite different from each other---one disturbing and thought provoking, the other a feel good experience. This is a fabulous giveaway. Thanks for sharing.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

thanks for such a generous giveaway Leann, somehow I missed this one....I usually take part.
I'm not a reader so no help there. But I love Johnny Reid!!!!!

Izzy said...

Great giveaway! During the holidays, I always like to watch Love Actually for some romance or National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for a great laugh! :-)

Miet said...

I am a huge fan of Iron and Wine for music- great to sew by!

Sandra W said...

This was such a lovely posting today. I loved reading it.
I have a music suggestion--Jersey Boys music. So happy. If you want to have a good read--but a serious one--try "No Man Dies Alone." And read the amazing story about the author at the end of the book.

Anonymous said...

I recommend reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty. Neither are the lightest reads, but both are really good.

erin mcsweeney said...

erin2470@hotmail.com

Stephanie said...

I love the book The Shack!

Zenia Rene said...

Hi Leanne, I'll gladly leave a comment for a chance to win this generous giveaway! I have to recommend my absolute favorite book series Outlander by Diana Gabaldon! You don't necessarily have to start w/the 1st book titled Outlander, but it's best to do so. I hope you get some relaxation time in over the holidays. Thanks for the chance to win!

Heather said...

Hi there! What a great giveaway!

Leanne M said...

Let me just start first by saying great name! Your blog is also very apt, love the images on this post. They are so different from each other but all are stunning. I have started following along now and feel like I have a long way to go to reach your level but maybe I can pick up some tips from you. As for good reads, this may have already been mentioned but there are far too many comments to wade through so at the risk of repeating the suggestions, here goes: The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak. Thank you for the chance to win these fabrics.

Heather Feather said...

I'm really into the bbc Sherlock right now! Its awesome!

Seana said...

I think the audiobooks I get for free from my local library's website are perfect for listening during sewing! Endless selection but I'm partial to murder mysteries set in my city (Seattle, WA)!

Anonymous said...

Try the podcast Compulsory by Kim Werker, about the things we're compelled to make. I think you'll like it!

Angelia Lanouette said...

This time of year I love to watch my absolute favorite movie of all time.....While You Were Sleeping. I am a big fan of Sandra Bullock and love this movie.

elizabethdee said...

The podcast Serial is completely engrossing. But if you want something lighter, Pride and Prejudice gets better every time you read it. Happy holidays to you!

Kayla Yapuncich said...

Thanks so much for the chance!! If you haven't read and/or watched Outlander, I highly recommend both the books and the TV show (that started recently). Really good!

Jessica said...

As always, I love your work. Read the Outlander series (and then watch the TV show!). It's fab!

Barb Neiwert said...

I do enjoy watching Downton Abbey on Amazon Prime while my sewing machine hums along. Not sure if the new season has started yet, been too busy with quilting and life. Happy holidays!

Alison said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I've really enjoyed the Wolf Hall books recently.

atabanana29 said...

I love The Walking dead!!!

Cathy said...

i asked for Gone Girl for Christmas... British series on Netflix like Scott nad Bailey and SLK. MGood stuff and 100 foot journey was heartwarming

Anonymous said...

OMG I love this fabric so much! These holidays I am planning to rewatch a lot of Doctor Who, I am hoping Santa will bring me some Doctor Who DVDs :)

Kelli said...

Not sure if you like murder mysteries, but my latest obsession is an Australian show on Netflix called Ms. Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Its my go-to entertainment when I'm burning the midnight oil in my sewing room.

pwofford said...

I just finished reading "Call the Midwife." It was a series in PBS, and book and tv shows are equally engaging. pwofford@triad.rr.com

Sandy said...

Your quilts are so inspiring! I love the Call The Midwife series on PBS

Moowee said...

Listen to Serial on Sticher. It is a great series that will have you hooked at first listen.

Nataliya

Christine S said...

I will be watching my Craftsy classes :)

Unknown said...

Such a great giveaway. I recently read through The Hobbit, which is so much better than the movies. Also, Tina Fey's book Bossy Pants is great to listen to (she did her own audiobook) - smiled through the entire thing.

Amorette said...

I just read any poehler's new book yes please and a book called Americanah, which were both excellent but very different!

I see a few people have already recommended The Piano Guys to you, but that is my recommendation as well! They are crazy talented and their music is gorgeous. Their YouTube videos are fantastic too! Definitely great for relaxing and smiling!

Bess

Minou14 said...

Gorgeous quilts! I'll be following you. My favorite book ever is My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell. If you like nature, it's a funny read.

Belinda said...

American Horror Story is pretty good, just started it on Netfilx. Thanks for the chance!

Chancy said...

I'm reading Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl and am really enjoying it.

Dieni said...

I'm a thriller book lover, and I second James Patterson's books, as well as Mary Higgins Clark's :) Another 'more peaceful' reads would be hmm.. Jodi Picoult?
And recently I've been watching the Great British Sewing Bee! ;))
dieni.rachmawaty at gmail dot com

Tracine said...

I have to say I agree with others in saying a book written by Jodi Piccoult is a great read. Thanks for a chance to win. tracinecharest@gmail.com

Frances Meredith said...

With holidays approaching in the UK I am looking forward to break from work and having a relaxing time. Relaxing usually means sewing! Instead of quilting this year I am working on some hand embroidery, in particular a little robin crewel work kit by Nicola Jarvis.

OzKnitter said...

I'm enjoying the final season of The Newsroom, and I'm sad that there's only one episode to go.

ozknitter at gmail dot com

margaret said...

lovely collection of fabrics. I am enjoying Kathy Reichs at the moment, she writes books about a forensic anthropologist and her solving of crimes a great read and what could be better than Chris de Burgh singing in the background well he is top of my list

Kylie MJ said...

REcommended reading: anything by Elizabeth Berg or Cheryl Strayed.

Unknown said...

It's a few years old now, but I always recommend Shantaram, by Gregory David Roberts. It's an amazing story about a man who escapes from a prison in Australia to set up life in the slums in Mumbai. Sounds odd, but it is beautifully written and will have you laughing and crying.
Have a lovely Christmas what ever you do get up to :)

Jo Jo said...

Well… Book recommendation is The City of Thieves by David Benioff. It's a great story, and don't be put off if you think it's about war, it's about finding a dozen eggs :) Film… now you may have seen these but Withnail & I or The Big Lebowski get my votes. Music… Try Fat Freddys Drop for something chilled! Happy, happy Christmas!

Hitch and Thread said...

When I need to feel better I watch old re-runs of friends. Or listen to meditation and relaxation cd's. Doe looks so lovely I can't wait to meet it. Happy Christmas.

Jen said...

I've been enjoying watching London's Super Tunnel about a new underground line they are building that will open in 2018, also Call the Midwife a BBC show is great and I love the band 'The Rend Collective'. Your quilts are beautiful!

Zura said...

Love all your amazing quilts! I love Suits and Scandals. I highly recommend these two shows :)

Unknown said...

The new hobbit film looks amazing!

Dawn said...

Well I know movies are fairly personal but I recently watched 'The Giver' and I really liked it.
dawnm1993(at)gmail(dot)com

Wendy said...

I watched Big Love when it was on TV and just got the box set, it's brilliant.

Peaches1003 said...

To read: Reamde by Neal Stephenson or Burial Rites by Hannah Kent (two completely different novels but both great page turners).
To listen: Sarah Blasko is a favourite of mine
To watch: I've no idea- I'll have to check out the recommendations you get too!

pennydog said...

I'm not sure if it's your thing but I really enjoyed watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and I'm waiting for the next series. I can recommend the Robert Galbraith/ JK Rowling detective stories too

Dianne Neale said...

Oh I must go through these comments to get some good books! The Girl with all the Gifts - MR Carey - I don't normally go for Zombie books, but this is a good one!

Audrey said...

I am more of a quilter than a knitter, but I am quite impressed by the podcasts from Woolful. My Mom brought me the video Saving Mr. Banks and says it is good. The last time I watched a series on Netflix I chose North and South about an English cotton mill village. I saw your AQS quilt in person and remain amazed.

Toya said...

I never find time to read or watch films anymore but I did just re read Black Beauty for the first time since being a child to my child, and I'm so glad I did - although I did sob all the way through it!

carolg said...

I have to second Gone Girl, although maybe not so relaxing. Love your work thanks so much for the giveaway. (also it's the final season of newsroom!)

Crafty Tokyo Mama said...

My sister told me about Freaks and Geeks which you can see on YouTube. I am a child of that era and it echoes my high school experiences almost exactly! I even had a striped sweater just like the main actress wears! The music and storylines are pretty good too, though they are not for little ones.

Myself said...

There is a new British film called "pride"- just watched it and loved it! thanks so much for this great giveaway!

Tas said...

I am halfway through Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth. Fascinating. I highly recommend it.

Allison said...

Music for relaxation--anything by Jim Brickman. He has a lot of Christmas albums out, but others as well. Very soothing.

Fgs26a said...

My favorite recent books are the Goldfinch and Gone Girl (the movie is great too!). I am currently addicted to the podcast Serial.

tlcala4me said...

I would recommend the remake of "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Michael Buble and Idina Menzel, and for pure fun "All About The Bass" in the Kate Davis 1940s version [or the original by Meghan Trainor, which I love in it's own way too].

Lisa Marie said...

I enjoy books by Heather Gudenkauf and by Bill Bryson. Bryson's "In a Sunburned Country" is laugh out loud funny.

Unknown said...

I love that Gilmore Girls is on Netflix!

Lynne said...

Gorgeous fabrics! I just discovered Pentatonix.. great music for the holidays. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Adele said...

As long as there is an NCIS marathon on I'm good!

Nancy L said...

If you can get the Sherlock series, I would highly recommend it. It will draw you in, and then you find out that the next one doesn't come out until next December.

Havplenty said...

My relaxation would include facials and massages at a day spa. But if you want a good book to read, try anything by Elizabeth George if you like detective mysteries. I have read several of her books.

tushay3(at)yahoo(dot)com

The nosy pepper said...

I love watching Christmas movies this time of year! Thanks for the chance to win!

Nupur said...

Thank you for the chance* Beautiful fabrics ")

Jan Baker said...

Wonderful fabric. You are going to think I am crazy but I have been enjoying reading zombie books lately. The Plue Plague series by Thomas Watson is great.

Have you listened to anything by George Ezra??

KathyinMN said...

Relax? hmmm-Silver Linings Playbook is a great movie to watch and its out on video.

Ellsie320 said...

Such awesome soothing colors

molly b quilts said...

I love this Doe fabric! So excited you're giving some away! Parenthood (family drama), Flight of the Conchords (hilariously awkward musical comedy tv), Fargo (tv show/mini series w/BillyBob Thornton and Colin Hanks).

SherryB said...

I find it difficult to watch TV & sew...am not very productive when I stop & watch the screen, especially when the background music indicates something worth watching! My favorite music, especially now, is Lori Line...she is a wonderful pianist and plays with an outstanding orchestra of jazzy music...my favorite song is her jazzed-up version of Frosty the Snowman!

JaneRH said...

I love the HBO series 'The Newsroom' - its a wonderful, fast-paced series in it's 3rd year. Its not necessarily a Christmas themed TV show, but very entertaining.

Paula said...

I highly recommend the new Foo Fighters album Sonic Highways. Also the 8 part series Sonic Highways on HBO is great. Yes I am unashamedly a BIG Foo Fighters fan.

Leslie can't stop quilting said...

For relaxing I just like being outside. I once worked at a school full of noisy children so I love peace and quiet. Thanks for a chance to win these beautiful fabrics!!!

Sandra Walker said...

OMG I got lost in the comments...now have added several titles to my list of books, and some TV shows, love British TV...Okay, stick to the topic, Sandra! Books: am currently reading Bel Canto by Ann Patchett and loving it. Really different, intelligent, the kind you think on when you're not reading it. Totally agree with people who recommended Outlander books, and the TV series is remarkably true to the books, rare in TV/film versions. Also The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman, so well-researched and absolutely amazing true story. TV: Call the MIdwife, and I also love Once Upon a Time, past seasons of which are on Netflix. Wallander, also on Netflix, and the books are excellent. Music: Born in Alberta, myself, I grew up listening to CKUA, thanks to my mum. I'm so happy I can listen to it online now that I no longer live there! Best. Radio. Ever. CD: Heart of Compassion--first discovered in a yoga class, and I use it in the classes I now teach, as well as often in my sewing room! I could go on and on.... oops already have! Think I'll come back to this page time and again for more recommendations, like I need to add more to my mile-long list of what to read next....lol :-) LOOOOOVE this fabric! So generous of you.

Carrie P. said...

I like the tv show called Revenge.

Margaret said...

I love listening to country christmas music.

Bethany said...

Gilmore girls is on netflix and it is something I really enjoy watching. It is a great show!! (Bethanymartini at aol dot com)

Farm Quilter said...

I enjoy the movie The Four Seasons from 1981. It is an interesting look into the interpersonal relationships of three couples and how the change in one couple affects the group and how they respond. Every time I watch it I get something new out of it. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

Karen said...

I would recommend binging on Bones on Netflix!

NPR recently featured the author of a new book - Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind. It intrigued me so I've requested the book from our local library.

I caught Desk Set with Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracey the other day. I always forget how much I love that show. You should check it out.

Thanks for the chance to win. Doe is high on my wish list right now.

Your quilts are beautiful! My favorite TV show to binge watch is Gilmore Girls. It was a one-hour show that had 7 seasons, so there's a lot to watch, but I throw a DVD in when I know I have 3 hours, and just watch 4 episodes at a time. Love it.

Thanks!

I generally watch Criminal Minds while sewing. A bit of an odd choice but it's a nice distraction plus I stop every now and then to stretch and watch!

What fun to scroll through these comments! The best book I read this year was an older one called The Moonflower Vine. It still haunts me. I want to give a shoutout for The Chinaberry Catalog. Best books for all ages and toys and music and nice things for the home!
Thanks for the giveaway chance! Lovely fabrics!!

Gorgeous quilts! One of my favorite Christmas movies is Christmas in Connecticut , an old black and white movie with a young Barbara Stanwyck. I'm enjoying listening to Straight No Chaser's Christmas music too! In contemporary Christmas movies, you gotta watch geena Davis
