It's Blog Hop Party & Giveaway Time!

 
 The Quilting Gallery is celebrating their 4th birthday with a Blog Hop Party with giveaways! There are over 200 blogs participating so that means there's oodles of stuff to be won!! I thought I would join in the fun too, after all, who can resist a party! So what am I giving away? Your choice of either a charm pack of MODA SHERBET PIPS shown here...
 or a free motion quilted needle case/pincushion made by Moi!
With lots of little pockets for scissors, seam rippers etc and a soft place to store your needles. This is what's in mine but you can fill yours with whatever you like (sorry,the tools pictured are not included, but you never know what I might add to yours!).

Did I mention your needle case will be personalized? I will monogram it with your initial. Now what's special about the monogrammed area, besides having your initial of course? It is a mini pincushion!
All you have to do is count how many stitches I used.... JUST KIDDING! No hoops to go through here. Just leave me one comment telling me what your favorite toy was when you were a kid! That's it! This giveaway is open to everyone. I will contact the winner to find out their preference on the charm pack or the needlecase. I will ship internationally.

Here are the rules:

I loved Barbies. I had a Malibu Barbie and Skipper with great tans. I used to tie a rope to the Barbie camper and pull it down the block and around the yard for their big camping adventures.

Helen Bazinet said...

I cannot remember a special toy but I remember a gift I got from one of my first teachers, it was a clear plastic brush with silver flecks in the handle, to me it was speac!ial

Catskill Quilter said...

Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite toy as a child was my 8 inch Ginny doll -- along with the wonderful doll clothes that my Mom sewed for her!

A Home In The Highlands said...

Favourite toy... errr.. this has really stumped me!! Barbie I think! :-)

Tracey Rampling (The Peony Teacup) said...

I loved my Barbie dolls!

Joanne said...

My favorite toy was also my Barbie - well really all the clothes she had, dressing her up was the best part.
The cases you made are fabulous! Thanks.

TheAccidentalCrafter said...

Can't remember a special toy, though I did hound my mum for a Barbie, and she finally gave in and got me one though.

free indeed said...

too funny...count the stitches...tehe.
One favorite toy was a stuffed dog my mom bought for me with green stamps. Does anyone else remember the Christmases when green stamps bought it all??? I don't remember if that's all I got that year, more than likely it was. Christmas was so normal back then,,not the grab glut of today's youth....

Peach Rainbow said...

The Doll my father bought me :D
Thanks for the chance!

Connie said...

My favorite toy was my Barbie doll, I sure wish I had it now as it would be a collector item since it was from the 50's. I had so much fun playing with it and my mom would make clothes for my doll.

Kate said...

Dolls were my favourite - I fondly remember my T. Eaton Doll (I'm giving away my age)and having loads of fun with paper dolls! This brings back back great memories!! If I'm lucky enough to win I'd like your needlecase and pincushion, which are absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for this opportunity.

beaquilter said...

I'm a new follower, love both the items! my favorite toy is NALLE, he's a bear my mom actually got when she was 1 and passed on to me, his fur is all worn off, because she had spilled him in oil when she was little, plus when I was a child my dog chewed it up! Nalle is stuffed with saw dust! so I came home from school with saw dust in my room- not much but enough to make a few holes in him, so we had to take him to a DOLL/teddy bear doctor and he got patched back up with pieces of RUG! that was the only thing that matched... when I was a teenager I crocheted little outfits and booties for him to protect him. he now sits on a chair next to our bed, he's a stiff little thing and not very pretty with leather paws and glass beads as eyes, but I love him and would never part with him.

conny's quilts said...

My good old teddy bear ofcourse was my favorite toy, my sister and I always made up many stories with both are teddy bears acting in it!
I am busy blog hopping already and I am a participant as well! So much fun! Kind greetings from the Netherlands!

Willy Wonky said...

My favorite toy was/is a soft, stuffed toy bunny...and I still have it 45 years later.

Sewnuts said...

My "Barbie's" - also another doll you could pull the hair out longer - Tressy?? Also my mom's old Singer when she'd let me use it to make clothes for my Barbie's - probably how I developed patience with sewing - lol!

Linda said...

Carrie P. said...

Merry Christmas! Your needle book is so beautiful. Thanks for a chance.
I did not have a lot of toys when I was young. But I did have a record player that I loved. It was fun to save my allowance and get new 45 records.

My fav toy when I was a small girl (and were talkin' 60 yrs. ago) was a "Tiny Tears" doll. She had really curly hair and would cry real tears. She had chubby legs and arms and was adorable.
Happy Holidays!

bohemiannie! art said...

I L-O-V-E, love your needle cases. They're awesome and you can put me down for one of them! My favorite toy was a teddy bear I received when I was 8 years old, which I named Teddy Roger, and lost when I took my babies to a Teddy Bear Party at the local library. :( I still miss him 28 years later.

Sandra said...

So long ago can't really remember any individual toys.

Quiltin' Sandy said...

I loved my Little Golden books, and the windup record player that belonged to my friend, we used to play ' The Teddy Bear's Picnic" on it, I think that was the only record he owned. LOL

quiltmom said...

I loved my Barbies and my books.
What a nice sewing kit with a cute little pin cushion.

JustPam said...

I saw a lot of Barbies as I was scrolling down, and they were my favorite too.

Kristi said...

What a wonderful give away.....Let's see, I guess my favorite toy growing up had to be my bike I got for Christmas when I was 8. I was an outside kid so whenever I could go out and ride that bike I was a happy kid.

Donah said...

a doll. It was really precious to me.

Jo said...

I think it was my butterfly net, but it might have been a fishing pole.......I was a strange child. Thanks for the chance to win.

Mom C said...

I'm thinking about 75,000 stitches. Wait, that wasn't the question! Beautiful FMQ though. Growing up I was horse crazy. Crazy because we lived in the city but that didn't matter. My Mom (aka Santa) always got me some little horse so that even if I couldn't have the real thing I did get something.

Lee D said...

my favourite toy would have to be my tippy toes doll. I still have her.

Lisa Cox said...

My favorite toy as a child was a stuffed Winnie The Pooh. I used to pretend I was a veterinarian and do surgery on that poor bear using nail polish as my surgical blade. Poor Pooh finally fell apart when I was in middle school.

@pril said...

I like how you have your furbabies on your sidebar.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

No hoops to jump through...good for you.

Bonnie Braids doll was my favorite toy.

Mary said...

My favorite toy was a soft brown teddy bear. I wore that bear out. When I was a teenager, a neighbor child stole it, can you believe it? The child had so little, her family was desperately poor; so I let her keep the bear. I didn't go knock on the door and demand it's return.

Kelly said...

My favorite toy is my Susie doll, I still have her today. She was given to me when I was born by my Pop pop, who passed away when I was 3.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Brenda said...

Special toy? I had so many I loved - hmmmm, I loved those plastic animals that you see in stores, although my '
'set' was not pretty!! I had a blue seal for crying out loud, so these 'animals' didn't always look real!! But I loved them!! I would make zoo's out of lego for them, they would come in the bath with me, we traveled together!!! Plastic animals - my favorite childhood toy!!
Good Question!!

Jennifer Gail said...

I loved my light brite.

Kelly said...

Donna Joy said...

My earliest memory was a spinning top, you had to pump a handle and then let it spin. I loved all the pretty colors and patterns it made.

Mhairi said...

39587 stitches. You did want us to count them didn't you?!?!? :D
Favourite toy - The one I still have is my teddy bear but I also loved games so they would probably rank high up on the favourites list. Pickup sticks and tiddley winks were two I loved.

Shawna said...

You are soooo funny! lol. I was reading slowly as not to miss anything. As soon as I read about counting the stitches, I looked up at the pictures you posted. lol. Glad you were kidding. My favorite toy when I was a kid, a small kid, was my baby doll. You could add water inside her and it was suppose to be more "baby like". Thanks for your giveaway.

Quilting "b" said...

A Babydoll was my favorite toy. Thank you for a great giveaway and Merry Christmas

Sandra said...

My favorite toy would have been my Tiny Tears doll. I really loved that doll. As I got older, my mother gave my doll away to my niece. But I loved that doll, so I found a collector's edition of Tiny Tears and purchased it and hid that doll under my bed. MY DOLL. I have really enjoyed the Blog Hop. Thank you for a chance to enter to win either Moda charm pack or the Free Motion Quilted Case. What wonderful presents.

Merry Christmnas.

Ducks and Rabbits said...

I loved my Fisher Price school desk! And I'd love the Sherbet Pips charms!

Peggy said...

I can't remember just one special toy, because I was always coming up with new things. During the summer I made little huts from the willows in the acres next to us. I made flower braclets from the dandylions and lily of the valley During the winter I made snowmen, snow angles etc. Indoors I was creating with fabric, cooking or baking. When we finally had neighbors with children my age we played school on the front porch steps.

♥Duff said...

My favorite toy was a Barbie Beauty Shop head--a mannequin head you cold curl the hair on. Gives me the shivers now--a disembodied head. That explains a couple of things about my personality though.... :O)

Lee Ann said...

My favorite toy wasn't really a toy when I was very young -- I loved the Memory game. I also loved one of my baby dolls too.

James-Linda said...

My favorite toy was a pink fuzzy elephant>loved that little guy!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

bagladyfromthebay said...

Thanks for participating along with the rest of our blogger members at the Quilting Gallery, I am really enjoying all of the comments on my blog and every other blog I visit.
My most favorite of all was a trunk with tiny drawers in it which my father made to hold my dolls clothing, he made it from a wooden coke crate. Wasn't I the lucky one.
I sew appreciate the needle cases you have made, too beautiful.

Anya said...

I had a toy washing machine that really worked... loved it!!

Tina said...

My favorite toy...was adoll that was as tall as I was given to me by my Grandma.

mblittle5 said...

I guess my favorite toy as a pair of skates (they kind that fit over your shoes and had a key to adjust the fit). Maybe I'm aging myself, but I felt like the king of the world (or maybe queen) when I was on my skates.

Marilyn said...

I loved my teddy bear - I still have him but he is rather threadbare, and my books - I still have some of those too.

NM_Creatrix said...

The hula hoop that I had to share with my sister.

Carlotta said...

Cedar Ridge Studio said...

My favorite toy was anything crafty so I could make things

Nancy said...

What a great giveaway. thanks for the chance to win.
My favorite Christmas toy was a Toni Doll. I still have it.

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

My favorite toy as a child was my crayons. I still remember how happy I was to get my first big box of 64 crayons (with a built in sharpener!). Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway!!

Anne said...

Those needle case/pincushions are exquisite! Lovely work with hundreds of expertly placed stitches! LOL!

My favorite toy was a doll head on a swivel stand. The doll had long hair, so a child could pretend to be a hairstylist. I'd roll the doll's hair, brush it, and style it into up-dos. So much fun!

One day, I placed the doll a chairside table in our living room, just down the hall from our family's only bathroom. No one else was home, but my dad had taken a shower and found himself without a towel. My mom loved to sew, so sometimes she'd just pile clean towels that she intended to fold and put away later on a bed. Sewing took precedence over mundane housework!

My dad slowly tiptoed out of the bathroom and took a few steps toward the bedroom, where he'd spied a pile of freshly laundered towels. However, when he spotted a "young woman" sitting in the living room, he tried to run. His feet were wet, so he slipped down on the floor and slid several feet. His legs slid completely under the bed. He scrambled to his feet, grabbed a towel, and headed to his bedroom to dress. Too funny! I am sure my doll never told a soul about what she saw, but we laugh about it still! My dear father has since passed away. Bless his heart.

Nintendo Gameboy..
Thanks for the generous giveaway!

Dix said...

Favorite toy was a swing. Could do it all day.

Kathy said...

I don't really remember a favorite "toy", but when I was 8 years old all I wanted was a pony. My parents got me a small horse that year and I don't remember ever asking for anything else. She was my best friend. I had her until she passed away at age 29.

Gwen said...

First, thank you so much for the chance to win! I LOVE Sherbert Pips-- adorable fabric :-)... and the needle cases you make are GORGEOUS!!! LOVE them!!!! :-) Now, on to my favorite Christmas toy... It would have to be a special little doll that Santa brought me when I was very young.. "Timmy" was just a simple doll with plastic molded hair, painted on eyes, and movable arms and legs, but he was my very favorite doll and I loved him so... I think it was because he reminded of a *real* baby... :-)

Missy said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win! Your needle cases are gorgeous. My favorite toy when I was a child was always a doll. these changed every year because I got a new one every Christmas from Santa, who was really my grandparents. I can remember especially Crissy with the growing hair and Tippy Toes.

SewLindaAnn said...

First was my toy hutch with pink tea set - along with my Easy Bake Oven to serve cakes.

MooseStash Quilting said...

Although I never owned one, I so loved Barbies. Since I have grown up and deal in antiques and collectibles, I have bought and sold more Barbies then I could have ever owned as a child. thanks for the chance to win that sweetie

RobbieJoy said...

My favorite toy was a fisher price doll my father gave me when he came home from Korea. She had a soft body, a molded face and molded hands and 'real' hair. My father had to leave when I was 6 mos. old and was gone for a year. (Air Force) I named her LeeLee and she was my constant companion. Once, I left her at someone's house when I finished playing and was beside myself all night and couldn't sleep. I still have her to this day, and I'm 37 years old.

Joanie's Quilts said...

Cat said...

I love your needlecases...beautiful work! Thank you for this chance to win one.
When I was about 2-1/2 I found a baby doll laying in a snowbank near our house & brought it home. The hair was all gone just showing the roots...it was a "horseman" doll. They stopped making them in the early 60's. They were rubber with eyes that open/ close depending on if laying down or sitting up. You could also give it water in a little bottle & squeeze it to...It was only about 10" tall, moveable legs & arms that could completely turn 360 degrees. My mother & grandmother tried to replace her most of my childhood with a "new" & shiny doll with nice hair...I always put those up on a shelf, but she was my baby! My grandma did support her with clothes every Christmas, still have her & her clothes.

Although I had picked many other girl names ahead, when I had my daughter @ 40, I named her after my doll. She's a keeper too, but with nice hair!

Mystica said...

It was always books!

strandkorbtraum said...

my "brio" train - I had lots of wooden rails and some trains with different kinds of coaches, I just loved to build whole landscapes in my room using all my other toys and books and well everything I could get my hands on .. and if I ran out of rails, no problem, my train could drive on carpet - aye it was very special.

Cheri said...

When I was about 10 or 12 my Dad bought me a red Boy's bicycle which I loved! I remember getting on it by throwing my leg over the seat to clear that bar that boy's bikes have and girls bikes don't have.....thanks for a chance to make a difficult choice between the fabric or the gorgeous tool bag!

SJSM said...

When I was quite small my parents said my Christmas list consisted of two items; a green haired doll and a yellow daddy. I got the green haired doll. Don't know where they found it but Santa had it under the tree. Evidently I asked for difficult things way back when.

Laine said...

My mom, grandma and aunt saved stamps from a grocery store and I got a red boys bike. I of course had to share it with my brother and sister but I loved it.

I remember with some fondness some paper dolls which had printed fabric paper to cut out and make your own dolls clothes from..I figure it was preparation for quilting..anyway it was a big hit with me and I spent long hours pouring over the combinations...somethings never change

My favorite toy was a teddy bear. He disappeared for quite some time but was found after my mother passed away. He's now over 60 years old. He's still my favorite toy. Merry Christmas from Minnesota.

I'd love the Pips!
I didn't have a fave toy, I had a blanket. It was a Cabbage Patch blanket.

Judi said...

Now there's a walk down memory lane! I had a Strawberry Shortcake doll whose hair I still remember the smell of. I wish I still had that! I love both prizes!

Okay there are 75 stitches in the "S" as for the rest of the stitches in the needles cases let's see 22,379! LOL just kidding. I sure would love one of those needle cases. My favorite toy? Hmmm...actually it was several puzzles. Yup... puzzles... the more pieces the better...Maybe that's what drove me to quilting... hmmm

Barbies!!! I still love my Barbies. Yes, I still have all of mine. My mom made all the clothes to go with my Barbies so when I played Barbies with my friends I always new what clothes went with my Barbies. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Thanks for the great giveaway. If I won, I'd definitely choose a FMQed needlecase. The ones you've made are so beautiful.

My favourite toy as a child was a huge teddy bear. I slept with it until I was 12 and after that it still had place of honour in my room. It's been repaired so many times that I now have it safely packed away. Someday far in the future after I'm gone, my children will have to decide what to do with it, because I can't bear the thought of parting with it. (pun not intended... lol)
