KT Christmas Giveaway Week #2

KT Winner and Another Giveaway

Only 2 more weeks until Christmas! Are your stockings hung? Cookies baked? Gifts wrapped? Uh, that would be a big "NO" from me. But I'm working on it a little each day. Robert is leaving for a long weekend, so I'll be finishing up the last couple sewing projects (pillows and a runner), adding the finishing touches to a chalkboard project, and covering a lamp shade with fabric for Delainey's Paris-themed bedroom. I'll try to remember to take some pictures before wrapping it all up.

The winner of our Christmas Giveaway Week #1 is:
Excited about the December surprises!! My birthday is in December!!

Congratulations AND Happy Birthday, Lin! You've won a $25 KT Gift Certificate. (I know it says $20 in the previous blog post, but we don't have $20 Gift Certificates. Senior moment, sorry. But good for you!)

Today, we have a another gift for you! Our Christmas Giveaway for Week #2 is my Gooseberry Sampler booklet and a box of leftover fabrics from the Gooseberry Lane collection. Comment on your holiday preparations to win a goodie box full of KT Christmas wonderfulness.

  1. Waiting anxiously for my kitchen update to finish so that I can decorate. We started in August but a few other projects were added and some of the craftsmen are dragging their feet. Soon, I’m sure, I will be able to begin to decorate.

  2. The house is done and now we start on the cookies. The fun part.

  3. I have the flu, so my holiday preparations have come to a screeching halt. Here's hoping I rebound in a hurry, or a good portion of the extended family will find themselves feeling woebegone until I'm back on my feet. Another good reason to follow the example of "wrapped and done by December 1", always my goal, never my achievement.

  4. Frantic! Trying to finish making gifts while putting the finishing touches on my first pattern!

  5. Our tree and most of the decorations are up. I'd love to get some of the wrapping done this weekend so that I can start baking next week. I have a few gifts still to make but they are fairly quick (baby bibs) so I'm not panicking!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I am slowly finishing my holiday prep. I will be starting my cookies this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  7. As usual, I'm way behind in my Christmas plans. No matter what, the main thing I love about Christmas is having the family together, so the rest doesn't seem so important. Hopefully, I'll get the rest of the gifts made in time. Merry Christmas!

  8. We finally have some cold weather, really seems like Christmas now. We will go out and decorate one of the spruce trees on the lawn. This is what puts me in the mood.

  9. The only preparations I've made for holiday decorating is hanging up one wall hanging. I've been busy trying to finish up a queen-sized quilt to go on the new bed that my daughter will sleep on when she arrives for the holidays from VA. I live in IL and am so excited to see her! Upon her arrival, cookie baking will commence! ☺

  10. I have my christmas cards done, but that is pretty much it. I will start ramping up this weekend. (I hope..) Thanks for sharing

  11. The house is partly decorated; the tree goes up this weekend. I'm working on a block-of-the-week project and using Kansas Troubles fabrics. But I'm starting to run low! I could really use the Gooseberry Lane book and those scraps. Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. Waiting for my 2 1/2 year old grandson to get here so we can get this party started!

  13. Holiday prep has been on hold for a week, but I'll make good progress tomorrow! I hope to bake, wrap presents and sew a gift or two also. Family time is coming... can't wait! Merry Christmas!

  14. I have about half of my shopping done, but nothing else is done. Too early for me.

  15. The decorations are pretty much done and the shopping is ongoing while I squeeze in a project for a friend.

  16. I'm just recovering from a broken leg and dislocated foot so my holiday preparations are fewer this year...I'm relying on daughters to take up the slack. Our plans always include birthday preparations as well. Since we're all together we celebrate my birthday which comes 5 days after Christmas, my youngest daughters whose birthday is 5 days after mine and one of my sons-in law's whose birthday is Christmas Eve. It's quite a feat sometimes to separate the Christmas wrappings from the birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Decorations and tree are up. Still shopping and then the wrapping will begin. Just decided to make a table topper yesterday so that has to be quilted. There never seems to be enough time to get it all done. Maybe if I'd start earlier, it would help. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  18. This week I'm working on small plaid Christmas stockings to put hand lotion in for my sewing groups. Still have the cards, cookies and wrapping to do!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my gosh, I need to get moving on getting ready for Christmas. I'm still sewing, just can't stop. All three of my kids and coming home so the plan is to put them to work. Ha Ha. Everything always falls in place sew i'm hoping it will this year too. We will see. Merry Christmas Pam from Canada

  20. I haven't started decorating yet, but hopefully this week! I have two very spoiled kitties, so the less time they have to destroy the tree, the better. :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. We are actually having our family Christmas this Sunday so lots of preparations have been happening. Thanks for the generous giveawy.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The only Christmas decorating I have done is to hang a live greens wreath at my front door amidst the Thanksgiving and Halloween decor. Eek! I am planning to make the transition today. A sinus infection has slowed me down this year. Thanks for the opportunity to win something from my all time favorite designer!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Presents are purchased and wrapped, and now I am deep into holiday baking.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Decorating almost finished, 50% of all shopping finished, nothing wrapped, no baking done, but it's all doable, what gets done, gets done, what doesn't, doesn't. The most important thing is that we are going to be able to be together as a family, and that's the absolute best part of the holidays! Happy Holiddays and thank you for chance to win a lovely prize!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My gifts are mostly purchased and wrapped. I am finishing up the gifts for our Christmas adopted family as well. Now I need to do some baking and finish up some handmade gifts. How does time go so fast?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm sooo far behind. Seems like I procrastinate more each year. But I always manage to pull it all together at the end!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I do have most of the decorations up, but still more shopping and all the wrapping left to do. Baking is on the to do list too. Thanks for a chance to win this lovely pattern. Merry Christmas to you and your's!

  31. I put up a few Christmas decorations in every room in my small house. Most of them are "old friends" and I still love them! I light candles in each room in the evening for a warm and cozy feeling (I live in Wisconsin so we need that!) Gorgeous Christmas quilt! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  35. A lot of my decorations are packed away because our house is for sale, but I did unearth some. Plus I give ornaments as random gifts so a part of me is present in other more wildly decorated homes of the people I love.

  42. The house is decorated inside and outside. The Christmas candy and cookies are done. All gifts are purchased and wrapped. Just need to write my Christmas cards. Everything is done because I retired 2 months ago. LOVE RETIREMENT!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I used to put up two Christmas trees; one upstairs filled with Precious Moments ornaments and white and gold decorations; and one in the family room downstairs - our Go Big Red Nebraska tree. As we have aged, the energy level doesn't extend to putting up both. The Go Big Red tree goes up this weekend. We also have a collection of Santas which always find their way throughout the house. My favorite decoration is a country sign on the front porch which says "Our house is filled with Santa, but our hearts are filled with Jesus."

    ReplyDelete
  44. OHHHH....we are moving on 12/20 to Goodyear, AZ. Everything is packed and in boxes. I have a pre-lit tree and may actually pull it out of the box and plug it in! Can't wait to get my sewing room set up and start creating at a whirlwind speed to make up this lost time! Have a wonderful Holiday season to everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I just have to stop adding things to the house, so that I can start the baking. Winding down as the weeks get closer. This is so much fun! Company will be coming to share it all. Happy Holidays!
