LAST DAY OF THE REINDEER GAMES - TWO GIVEAWAYS - ONE FOR THOSE THAT PLAYED AND ONE FOR THOSE THAT WISHED THEY COULD HAVE!

Here is Rudolph, you can find him here   Caroll was so sweet and downloaded him for me, why she can get in google doc and I can not.....Hummmmmm
You can find Carroll's here.  Caroll has been totally amazing.  She has been my babysitter this last two months while I have been in transit and moving.  I bet she felt she didn't sign on for that.  Thanks Caroll, it has been so fun doing this with you.

I would like to thank all of you for coming by and participating.
Here is the giveaway, I added a spool of Gutermann thread and two emery boards.


This part of the giveaway is for those that actually made reindeer, so I will give those people time to get their pictures on flickr or you can just comment and lead me to your squares or email me.

Now the rest of you....you are thinking....  But Barb....I had too much going on to do those Reindeer, too many UFO's and I just couldn't start another project.  Well....this next giveaway is for you.


These Charm squares.......just leave a comment, tell Caroll what a fabulous job she did in drawing the reindeer, if you want you can tell me how clever I was to think of the idea (laughing here).  Stroke our egos....HA!!!  No seriously, just leave a comment.


Thanks again, it has been fun!

Hi Barb
I saved the reindeer to work on later! and you were incredibly clever to think of such a great idea!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Well you already KNOW that I think you are very clever and a talented designer. Carol did a fabulous job.

Wanda Correll said...

Thank you so much - BOTH of you. I have collected all of them and it is now on my "To Do" list. I loved everyone of them.

Barb, what a wonderful give away. I just updated and told my readers to check it out. I don't know why you can't get into Google! Glad things worked out though. You've been a jewel to work with. If it hadn't been for you our Games would never be. You are a special friend!

Mary said...

The drawing was superb and the idea was brilliant!!

I can only enter for the charm squares, as , like you, we were involved in a move to a new state (unexpectedly too- hubby was out of work for a year and was hired for a job that he thought that he did not get and we had to hustle and move from Ohio to Missouri, as he had only ten days to start the new job!)

arlette said...

I just love reindeers :)

SewCalGal said...

I so enjoyed the Reindeer games. Great idea Barb and Carol did do a great job drawing too.

Thank you so much for these super patterns! I've had fun stitching away on my reindeer--still have two more to accomplish. Have enjoyed every reindeer!

Google Docs doesn't work for me with IE but I can use it with Firefox, give that a try. Love the reindeer - thanks for the chance to win.

suemac said...

Cute reindeer. I am not in Christmas mode yet.

Snoodles said...

I'm in the "just-couldn't-start-another-project" category....but have been following along and enjoying both your and Caroll's talents! You both did great! Love Rudie by the way - he's quite the handsome guy!

Kathy MacKie said...

You all are so clever, well done!

Gwen said...

Caroll, your artistic talent
is oh, so, so impessive!
These cute little reindeer faces
are incredibly expressive!!

And, Barb, what a cool idea you had--
when you dreamed up this "Reindeer Game"!
You could have published these in a book,
for the two of you-- fortune and FAME! :-)

But thanks to you both for freely sharing
these cute, cute, wonderful blocks!
You generously shared your talent with us!
Ladies, let me say, "You both ROCK!" :-)

Well, I didn't join in on all the fun---
now I really wish that I had...
Such adorable Reindeer blocks you've shared!
But, I've saved them for future use, you see..
and for that, I am certainly GLAD!!! :-)

cpup40 said...

You're clever on thinking of the idea. Both you and Carroll did a fantastic job on this project. I have saved them to do in the coming months. Health reasons in the family has kept me from starting on them already. Thank you both again.

VickiT said...

Caroll did an awesome job drawing all the reindeer. I sure couldn't have done it. I only wish I'd have had the time to do these but I just have too much going on with family and a few health things so I just couldn't do it. (one of my twins moved in with his family and three dogs so it's kinda turned our house upside down for awhile until we can find a new routine...but the biggest plus is I get to snuggle with my 6 month old Granddaughter anytime I want to now that she's living her for awhile YAY)

I would be absolutely thrilled to win the Yuletide Magic charm pack. I LOVE that fabric collection and don't have any of it. Thank you both for all the hard work you put into this. Great job.

Fiona said...

Joanna said...

Yes, I do wish I could have played along. Your reindeers are so cute and happy. They are fun to look view. What talented crafters you both are.

Sally said...

I love them all and I'm doing them as embroidery and as applique--2 quilts for Christmas--thanks to both of you!! Need to charge up the camera to take some more pics!

Inga said...

It has been fun watching the reindeer come alive, hope to join in the fun next time.

JustCindy said...

Rudolph is just as cute as the other reindeer. I am excited to get my quilt finished and put together. Thanks to you and Carol for this fun BOM.

Sisbabestitches said...

Oh fabulous haul you have put together for the participants giveaway. I have paused on number 5 as it seems I cannot stitch a snowflake that looks like a snowflake, oops. But the others are drawn and I am determined to have them finished this month. This has been a blast and you and Caroll have done a brilliant job with the reindeer and running the quilt/stitch-along, thanks so much.

Joanne Lendaro said...

Another cute one!! Can't wait to see them all together!

free indeed said...

Yes, I'd like to play along next time too. Summer is such a busy time for me...well, all year is, but I spend more time inside once summer is over :) YOU were so clever to include a giveaway for those of us that didn't participate...THank you! Now I am off to see these blocks; the one pictured is a cutie...well done to the artist!

andsewon said...

I give you both "attagals" for coming up with the wonderful idea and execution of it! I could not play along this time but maybe in another 'game'! Now you need to put the cute quilt pattern up on Sis's site for sale!

I have LOVED seeing the Reindeer blocks materialize (pun?). They are delightful, and hopefully SOMEday I will participate! Thanks for having this fun project!

It has been delightful to see the Reindeer materialize (pun?). They are really quite fun, and I wish I could have participated. Maybe sometime in the future? Thanks for your inspiration and talent!

bobbi said...

Thank you so much for your cute, playful Reindeer set, Barb and Caroll!
I have collected them all and soon will shrink them down a bit to start embroidering them for my 2012 Christmas AMC postcards.
Happy Stitching and hugs from Germany,
Bobbi

bobbi said...

I think my first try didn´t work...but I wanted to be sure to thank both of you, Barb and Caroll, for your wonderful reindeer set--they are so sweet, and I want to downsize them soon so I can start embroidering them on my Christmas 2012 AMC postcards!
Happy Stitching and hugs from Germany, Bobbi

Marcia W. said...

Though I couldn't sew along, I did enjoy visiting to see the next reindeer games installment. Thank you Carroll for your artistic contribution of drawings, and to Barb for your original and fun idea.

Margaret said...

You are both awesome. Such talents amaze me. I have no talent so I know good talent when I see it. I would have liked to join in but I have so many other obligations already that I just could not take on one more. I have saved the posts and hope to put this on my bucket list for when the snow flies and I don't want to leave my nice warm house so I hibernate in my sewing cave.

Nanbon44 said...

I didn't get to participate, been to busy with hubbys illness, but I did enjoy seeing the blocks...

quiltmom said...

It looks like you are having fun with the reindeer projects. Thanks for sharing your ideas and for creating a giveaway for the ones ( like me).
I feel very fortunate to get a chance to participate in the draw.
Regards from Western Canada,
Anna

hueisei said...

I love the reindeers pattern. Too bad I can't join the stitch along.

nanmade said...

Love the reindeer! Thanks for sharing the patterns. I saved the patterns and am collecting the fabric. This will be a 2013 project.
