100th Follower and Blog Hop Giveaway!

As promised a giveaway!  I'm going to celebrate my 100th follower with a Blog Hop Party!  Okay, okay the whole blog hop party was someone elses idea, but it sure seemed like a coincidence that it happened now, for my 100th follower.. okay okay so everything is NOT about my blog.  Fine! ;)
 
After you enter my giveaway make sure you click the banner to go visit all of the other blogs giving away goodies.  I know I will be.. I mean really..  am I supposed to resist winning more fabric?  I think not!
 
Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways
 
So for my giveaway I've decided to give away fat quarters of my favorite things that I have in my stash right now, no rhyme or reason, no matchy/matchy just the 4 favorite things in my stash at the moment.  You might laugh, but a couple of these were really hard to cut into but I figured I got them because I loved them and I don't have a plan so I can part with a FQ of them right?

Left to Right:
Leslie Beck for VIP : Good Fortune by Kate Spain : Kyoto by Avlyn : & some Riley Blake

 
So there you have it!  Giveaway will run until September 3rd sometime in the morning.  After I've had my coffee I'll do a random # thingy.  I will ship to anywhere that the U.S. Postal service will ship to. 
 
How to enter?  You can have an entry if you follow me.  Warning though, sometimes I post a lot and other times I go a week or two or a month without a post.  Mostly this is a quilting blog but once in a while I post about something else.  
 
You can have a second entry if you answer this question:
What did you or would you major in, in College (University)?  I took a lot of computer stuff and was heading toward a degree in Computer Science but then I changed my mind.  I think now I'd love to go to Le Cordon Bleu.  Not necessarily to become a working chef, but just because I adore cooking and would love to be much better at it.
 
There you have it.  Two entries=two comments.  If you do not answer the question for your second entry it will not count!  Pet Peeve of mine.... not answering the question! ;)
 
Good luck!

I got a degree in English from the Naval Academy and then got out of the navy and became a high school teacher. I got my MA in TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) and taught for several years. I worked a little on a PhD, but then had kids and now stay home full time. If I could do it all over, I would have gone anywhere else in the world to college and become a marine biologist or research scientist.

(I have no clue what you do when you "major" in something, and it's too early to have some quality time with wikipedia .. educational systems are so confusing)

Pretty fabrics! I have a hard time cutting fabric that I love, too.. silly, I guess, but it's still hard for me to do.. :-) I am a new follower-- I guess.. I was pretty sure that I had followed your blog before.. I think that Blogger forgets sometimes.. :-)

java diva said...

If I went back to college, I can't really say what I wish I'd get a degree in. In some ways I still haven't grown up, there are so many things I'd love to do! And right now none of them stand out more than the other. I think history is fascinating and I am always amazed by the people who know so much about antiques. But being an appraiser sounds kind of boring. :P Some of the other things I wish I could do don't require degrees, like racing cars.

I have a bachelor of social work degree and I have worked in social work for almost nineteen years. I knew this is what I wanted to do when I was in my early twenties and started the program, but ended up leaving in the middle of the second year. I got married, had three children and went back to school when I was forty and completed my degree.

When I first went to college, I majored in English - specifically journalism. Then I got a job in that field. Years later, my husband went to Bible college and I was able to take a few classes there - would have loved to do more there. Now I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom who also runs a licensed daycare out of her home, so I am studying early childhood education.
