Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party with give-aways

It's time to celebrate Quilting Gallery's 5 years anniversary. Happy birthday Quilting Gallery! They are hosting a blog hop party, and you can find many interesting blogs, and have the chance to win different nice things in this give-away.

I keep my give-away open until December 16th. And you are invited to take part, from all over the world. All I'd like you to do is to write about the weather where you are right now. Where I live in Norway it's cold and dark. Today we have -1 degrees C (or about 30 F), and just a little bit of snow, as you can see in these pictures. The weather is nice and calm, no winter storms yet.

What I'm giving away, as it is soon Christmas, is a secret Christmas present with different fabrics and other sewing related things.

And as usual in all my give-aways I give away an extra present, a pincushion made from selvages.

Til alle mine norske quiltevenner; Dersom du ikke er kjent med Quilting Gallery, s er det p tide gjre seg litt kjent n. Du kan melde din blogg inn i Quilting Bloggers, slik at andre kan finne den.

Here in Texas where I live we are having our first cold weather. It is 38 degrees right now, but it is predicted to get down to 20 tonight. Incidentally, I love Norway and was excited to see this blog! I will definitely become a follower. I want to invite you to see a quilt I just made that depicted the Hanseatic Wharf area in Bergen. Email me and I'll send you a link. I've been to Norway twice, and after the USA, it is my favorite country! (I am a fan of the Kristen Lavransdatter trilogy, since I was a teenager!) Would love to win your giveaway.

In the Netherlands the weather changes daily. The temperature from -10C till +10C at night, and from 0 to +11 at daytime. For the last 3 days we had snow (lots already, very unusual), rain, sunshine, storm, no wind at all; in short: we don't have a steady climate, it's a surprise every day. Thanks for hosting this give-away. You are the first I visit because you are from Europe as well.

Kind regards, Marjo B-W


10.12.2012 kl.19:29

Today we have a strong wind, the temperature is between 2 and 4 C. I live in the Netherlands. Thanks for the giveaway.

10.12.2012 kl.20:40

I'm from the north of Germany and for the past week or so we've had snow and ice rain and up to -10C. Today it was around 0C but tonight when I drove home from work it was already freezing and snowing again, the streets are a mess, this year it seems like they barely clear them at all... :(

Thanks for this giveaway and the chance to win! The pincushion is cute and I love surprises! :)


10.12.2012 kl.21:12

10.12.2012 kl.22:24

Hi! What an awesome idea...a present for a give away! Love it! I just finished taking a Circumpolar World course so I was excited to see a blogger from Norway. I am in Whitehorse, Yukon (Canada) - also arctic. Today it is -10 and overcast.

Hello from Sonora, Ca. The weather is cold but the sun is out. However, the weather is going to change and we will soon face another rain storm. We have had a lot of rain. The rivers are full and the grass is green here in the foothills. It is so very nice of you to join in the party from Norway. Thank you for taking the time to join us and to surprise one of us with a very special Christmas present as well as your cute pinchusion made from selvages. I hope you meet a lot of new friends and that they will become new followers for you. I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

11.12.2012 kl.00:47

G'Day from an American in Australia! It's 77F and sunny. We are enjoying summer. Experiencing Christmas in summer is quite strange for me as I was born and raised in Michigan - very snowy like Norway at Christmas time.

11.12.2012 kl.01:55

I live in western Iowa in the middle of the States. We have about 30 degrees F right now. This year we haven't had snow yet, which is surprising. We usually have snow in October or November. But that's fine with me. I don't like snow.


11.12.2012 kl.02:10

Here it is rainy and cold today--shouldn't be but it is!! About 20 degrees--I know you probably dont think that is too cold (because I lived in Norway for a year so I understand) but it is supposed to be Summer in Australia! Thanks for the lovely giveaway and making me a little 'homesick' with your weather report ;)

Oh! I love the pin cushion! Aren't selvages just fascinating?

Our weather is hot most of the year. But, we have the best weather in the winter. Today it was 68 degrees F (20 C). It was so beautiful...a little bit cold in the morning and lovely during the day! This is my favorite time of year. I live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

It is winter here in north central Alberta- Today it was mild about the same as you-1 but last week it was -23 with a wind chill. We definitely need coats, hats and other winter clothing to play outside.

Surprises are always fun. Thanks for participating in the blog hop. I hope you meet many new blogging friends.

Regards from Western Canada,

Thats a great pincushion! I have 5 but I'm always missing one wherever I'm sewing, so was planning on acquiring a few more! It's 6C here - I always have to look up the conversion even though my best friend lives in a Celsius zone! I'm both a bit envious you have snow and a bit thankful we don't have any yet :)


11.12.2012 kl.10:09

At the moment it is fine here in New Zealand. A nice summers night, but it is suppose to become quite horrible.....still waiting

Some parts of Japan have lots of snow already but Tokyo had a very nice sunny day. The trees still have leaves of yellow and red but there is frost crunching on the ground in the morning when I walk with the dog. We usually only have a few days with snow in January or February and I love the clear blue skies of winter with Mt. Fuji seen from un-expected locations, a bridge, a train window, a restaurant on the top floor of a building...


12.12.2012 kl.12:13

On the shores of Lake Erie Pennsylvania, USA - its a mild winter so far - its in the 40's F and cloudy - winters are usually very grey and cloudy - with bouts of a lot of snow

I am in North Carolina, USA and it is cool and raining. We truly need the rain as this area has many tobacco farmers who desperately need their ponds full for the 2013 growing season, my husband included. It is now bedtime so I wish you all sweet dreams.

We have just had a few days of unseasonal storms and rain that made my all the plants in my garden look so beautiful. Yet sadly, in other parts of our state some gardens are underwater because the storms brought so much unexpected rain?

The weather today in Wisconsin, USA is cold. It's about 30 degrees, snow on the ground, but no storms, no snow falling, so that is good. I just don't like the cold. I'm a wimp!

Hello! I live in the state of North Carolina, U.S.A. Today it was a typical December day, 50 F for the high, 30 F for the low. No snow yet, but a very cold rain all night last night. I love living here, because we get a little snow every year, and a few nice, warm, days in the winter, too. Have a super day!

I'm in the UK, today it's very cold, but no snow or ice yet! Feels like there should be though!


13.12.2012 kl.23:21

What a cute pincushion! I live in Oregon, U.S.A. and today it's very cold, although we do not have snow...yet. We haven't even had to scrape the windshield of the car yet, but there is snow on the mountain tops. This is prime quilting weather -- staying inside near the fire with layers of fabric to keep me warm!

Thank you for the chance to win. :)

Hello! So nice to visit your blog for the first time. I love that pincushion!

I live in Southern California-- squeezed between the ocean and the mountains. It is one of the most lovely places on earth (though I have never been to Scandinavia and would love to visit!)... and this is mostly because of the mild weather. At the moment, we have just had a winter storm blow through, so it is COLD and WINDY (about 40 degrees which is quite cold for us), but the sun is bright and shining. Even on the shortest days of the year, we can feel like summer!


14.12.2012 kl.20:27

Ooh, what fun! Thanks for the chance to win and Merry Christmas!


14.12.2012 kl.21:18

It is 9am Sunday morning here on the East Coast of Australia. Current temp is 24.7C or 76.46F. The air has been smokey all night, most likely because the firemen are doing "backburning" overnight to help prevent more serious fires when it becomes hot and windy. debbie
