Ice Day Giveaway


Since about 3 am the rain has been beating on the sides of the house it stopped around 6 am. That being said all that lovely water froze to my car, steps ( currently ready for ice skating championships) and the highways. I had to slide out on my bum to get my poor furbaby taco back up into the house this morning because she couldn't make it up the steps with out falling back down. The reason for the bum is because that is what I landed on when I took one step outside. Needless to say I am not driving in that. I have to work like everyone else but I need to keep myself in one piece more!!!
So I am having an Ice Day at home where I get to play with my fabric. Yippee!!!
So does anyone else have an ice day going on?

Any way who love jelly rolls? I have an extra one just sitting in front of me. It is Maypole by Moda. See what happens when I am bored online I order things usually about 2 or 3 am in the morning when I can't sleep. When I do that I don't always keep good records of what exactly I ordered. So within a week of each other they got delivered. I liked it so much I ordered 2 from different online shops. Since I am having an Ice Day , I will make it even better by hosting a giveaway. I don't know how to do buttons, so I won't give you one. Leave a comment saying you would like to be entered between Today February 9th and February 19th. For extra 5 entries give me a link on your blog and let me know! Please remember anonymous people cannot win.

So who has instructions for buttons for the technically challenged???

Hey we had an ice day a week or so ago in Texas. I understand about staying home! Please put me in your drawing!

Can't help with the button thing. I may have to study up on that one!

floribunda said...

No ice here in California! I'd love to win your extra jelly-roll.

Nancy said...

We had an ice day and I didn't care for it! Fortunately, I didn't have to go to work that day.

I'd be tickled to win your jelly roll -- please enter me into your drawing!

Louise SS said...

We had about 18 inches of snow during the past weekend! Fun... we have been shoveling constantly! The problem is that it will stay on the ground til the end of April or even May. Not fun! Oh well, the kids have fun.
I would love to win the jellyroll (if I win I will be happy to pay for the shipping)!
Take it easy on the ice!

Di said...

I'm so sorry to hear you have ice - it's so terrible to deal with. I would love to win the Maypole fabric, maybe it will bring spring to the both of us?

Quilt Hollow said...

We had two snow days early last week and get this; yesterday and today has been absolutely gorgeous with Spring like weather in the low 70's! I went from layering clothing last week to crop pants, t-shirt and sandals! I won't put away the winter wear just yet...but oh my the defrosting felt great! I'm am so glad you visited my blog today and now I found yours. Geez....everytime I announce on my blog about a giveaway I ruin my odds of winning. It has become a joke around here because I've never won a blog giveaway.
Wish I could send some of our warm weather your way...but I think ours is turning cold again by the end of the week. EeeeeGADS!

Sue Cahill said...

No ice here in Niagara Falls, NY unless you count the ice bridge under the falls (a sight I never get tired of.

I'd love to be entered in your giveaway, what fun it would be to win!

We've had lots of ice this year, but it was 60 today...unheard of in Indiana in February.

Megan said...

Oooh, enter me! You know I can't resist anything pre-cut!

Jo in TAS said...

Poor furbaby being stuck out in that horrible weather! Hope you didn't land too hard, I hate falling over, it never used to hurt when I was a kid but as a grown up it does damage!!
Fancy sending a jelly roll to OZ, if so enter me in the draw please!!
Stay Warm!
Hugs

Brenda said...

Hi: it's still really slippery out there -- I just ventured out and wished I hadn't. Count me in on the jelly roll draw, please. Stay safe on the streets, and stay upright.

Cherold said...

Yesterday we woke up to about an inch of snow...today it's an inch of hail!
I'd LOVE to win your jelly roll...I've used and loved them.

Good luck with the ice! Gotta love winter weather!
I have only ever bought 1 jelly roll in my entire life! I had a great time using it up and would love to have another one!

We didn't have any ice here in Maryland. It has been veryspring like for the past few days.
I love jelly rolls, have made several quilts with them. I really like the idea that you don't have to cut strips when using a jelly roll.

We have been having ice days and today was one warm day,

Thanks

free indeed said...

Sorry to hear of your 'bum-mer' day! lol. We are expecting the snow/ice mix tomorrow. I'm in northern Maine and ice and snow are normal occurances here. I try to always have good treads on the soles of my boots before venturing out; and most likely just stay put. If I fall, I'm so round I bounce and bounce and bounce then I have a hard time standing up again...at least very gracefully! it is very embarrassing and one of these days I will break something very important with all this weight! :( So enter me for the roll. I've never bought a roll from one line before...I've only done the charms that way....so I would very much like coordinated strips for a change.

Wendy said...

Wow, we had a warm 60+ degree day today and yesterday here in Maryland. Hope you get one your way too.
Don't feel alone about ordering two of the same thing. I've done it as well, only I paid a utility bill twice. Not as fun as your error. Thanks for having such a great giveaway!

Sandra :) said...

I'd love to enter your giveaway - thanks!!! I'm a bit east of you in Ontario - we know about ice days here too *oi vay*! I followed Bella here - I'll give her a smack on behalf of those of us that get REAL weather ;) *smacks Bella for the halibut* :)

Candace said...

Hope it warms up, but sometimes an extra day offis nice. Thanks for thinking of the giveaway.

Purple Pam said...

When I taught a mystery class for my quilt quild, I used my Maypole jelly roll. It was the first time I had actually sewn with a jelly roll. How are you going to use your jelly roll?

Sunna Reyr said...

I have never bought a jelly roll. Bought a nickel pack once, washed it and now it measures 5" x 4 3/4" Have never used it. How do you handle a jelly roll if you can't wash it?

Barb said...

Man I could use a snow/ice day to stay in bed and sleep ~ probably not gonna happen here in Florida. I've not worked with a jelly roll yet ~ but looks like it would be fun.

Anonymous said...

We have received a lot of snow the last 2 days so I am staying home too.

Oh, the possibilities! Thanks for your jelly roll giveaway! Happy valentines!

Threeundertwo said...

I'm in California, so no ice days here. Sorry to hear your steps are so treacherous! That would scare me.

There's a great button tutorial at zakka life: http://zakkalife.blogspot.com/2008/05/html-button-tutorial.html

Even I eventually figured out how to do it. You can too!

While I am freezing, there's certainly no ice in AZ. I'd love to win the jellyroll though!

KATINA KARAS STUART said...

I love fabrics. I love making creations out of fabric. I have two adorable grandchildren who love getting things made from fabric. Please enter me in your drawing. I live in the Chicago area. We've had a ton of snow and ice. We did have a thaw and the snow has mostly disappeared. Yeah!

Kristin said...

I wish we had a little ice or snow, all we are getting is strong, cold, wind that is drying everything out. I hate to see the fires that spring brings if we don't get some snow. Anyway, please enter me, I have been wanting this jelly roll to make my father a quilt to remember his mom that just passed away. Thanks!

Tara said...

Ice = yuck, but a fabric day sounds great to me right now!

I'd like to be entered in the giveaway. A Moda jelly roll?! Fabulous.

Thanks!

Dollbecky said...

Gosh I miss real seasons ! Here in LA even rain is exciting!
I'd love to be in the draw please :)

Lori said...

Hope you're keeping warm and toasty inside! Here in England it's also quite cold...and oddly there's STILL snow! Weird. Any fabric titled 'May' something would be welcomed at this point. Might just help it come a bit sooner :)

Suze said...

Ice sounds treacherous. We don't have ice days here in Hawaii, but we do have severe wind days. I'd love to win a jelly roll. I've heard so much about them. Sending you some warmth and sunshine...hopefully the ice will melt. Aloha!

Carlotta said...

Oh my, remind me not to buy anything online at 2 or 3 in the morning. We haven't had any ice days here in Louisiana, but it seems like a good reason to stay home to me. I would like to be entered in your giveaway please. Thanks

Jenny Seiler said...

I think your solution to a rather lousy day outside is just wonderful! Please enter me in your giveaway, I would love to play with that roll!

I don't have a blog to add you to; but, I would love to win the jelly roll. Thanks for the chance. Have a nice day.

Wonderful giveaway. Thanks for the chance.

kidletsmum said...

Though I'm from Canada and lived in the bitter north, I've never had a snow or ice day... we'd never get anything done in Canada if such things existed!
I'm not in Canada anymore though, and I can't say I miss the cold...

Thanks for the chance to enter!

Karen SINGLEY said...

Hi--I like ice because I can't drive in it--so therefore I stay at home & play wih my fabric also. And I love Jelly Rolls, I would love to win yours. Please add me to the contest. I have a blog--but nothing is on it yet. I said i was going to start one at the first of 2009--well, I did--but I haven't added a thing.

Catherine said...

I've never bought a jelly roll -- keep looking at them, but never quite take the plunge.
This has been the oddest winter I can remember. However, the February thaw we've had has been wonderful!

momid5 said...

at a point in my distant past, I used to like ice days ,the littles and I would gaze out frost covered windows and make up stories....but the jellyroll you are offering feeds my fantasy today!

Mary said...

Ice is the worst. The best thing about retirement is you don't have to go anywhere when it is really nasty out.

What a lovely givewaway. I too am the queen of late night shopping. I need amazonaholics.

RachelJane said...

We never get ice days... or snow days. It could snow a ton and we'd all still be driving through it to work/school, no matter what the conditions. sigh. Oh well, a Moda jelly roll would do wonders to cheer up anyone, wouldn't it?
I feel I'm getting in under the wire on this giveaway - it's 8:26 pm where I live!

I'm sorry that it is so icy. But glad that you get to stay at home and play with your fabric. Thanks for giving us all an opportunity to win the jelly roll!

I'd love to win your jelly roll - it looks so bright and cheerful! I've never had a jelly roll before - they look yummy!

No ice here in western Washington today...we actually had sunshine and 50* instead of our usual 40* and grey rainy stuff. Nice! Sorry you're having ice, but calling an Ice Day is a plus, isn't it?

We had sunny weather today which was NICE for a change! :) I'm glad you're ok and not out there driving in the ice and slick stuff...it's dangerous even with 4 wheel drive on the ice!

If not too late I'd love to be entered in your drawing for the Maypole Jelly Roll. Sounds like it will be really pretty. I remember when I was a child May Day was a huge thing back home and dancing the May Pole...when I was two or three I was crown bearer for the May Queen and actually remember it. When a little older I got to do the MayPole Dance or what ever you would call it.
