I truly enjoyed being part of the Blog Hop Party. Thanks to everyone for stopping by my blog! I had asked that you leave a comment telling me what your favorite toy was when you were growing up. There were some wonderful comments. My memory got jogged quite a few times. I'd all but forgotten my Velvet doll with hair that grew and my Barbie with the wigs.

My favorite toy was a baby doll with auburn hair. She was chubby, like me, and can you believe I called her Fatty !?! (maybe I should see a professional about that LOL). I loved her to pieces. One day my brother took a red felt marker and drew on her (he must have been mad at me for something!). He's lucky he survived. Unfortunately she didn't.
 The dogs are telling me that I've bored them to tears so on to the winner! Drum roll please....number 151!

Congratulations Jsoosay! You get your choice of prize. Judging by your comment, though, you would like the needlecase. Let me know which initial you want on it!

Out of all the lovely answers to my question there was one that really struck a chord with me. It was all about a well loved little teddy bear that had some pretty traumatic experiences but survived. I think his Mom deserves a little something for all the care she gave him so.....I'm giving  her a prize too (she gets second choice)!

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.

Thanks again to everyone for participating! It's almost Christmas. There's tons of stuff left to do! So I better get going on my sewing! I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. I'm so glad I started blogging and have been able to share my quilting adventures with new found friends! See you all in the New Year!

PS - I noticed I'm getting close to 100 followers so there might be another giveaway in the new year!

Those dogs don't look bored - they look like they're hiding a secret ... involving ... *stares deeply into their eyes* ... chewed up slippers and newspapers??!??!?! YIKES!! ;)

Congratulations Jsoosay and beaquilter!

I hope you get everything done in time that needs doing, Corina - this is the point at which I start removing things from my To Do list as I know I'm just not going to get to them - I bet I'm not the only one, LOL!
