Oooo a chance to win something! Sign me up! I hate basketball and usually get a lot of sewing done because the television is otherwise occupied.

Happy Quilting!
Cindy

Count me in! I'm very new to quilting, but am finding it extremely addictive!

All the best.

My husband is a huge basketball fan. Me? Not so much....I enjoy having all that time to quilt while he watches, hoots and hollers! I'd love a little something for me.

Loris said...

You are busy blogging today...and I'm busy reading :-) A giveaway sounds like a great way to anticipate March Madness. Thanks for the offering!

Bev said...

Sign me up! I have to say that one of the benefits of a divorce is not having to watch sports on tv unless I want to! It's not the greatest benefit but it's right up there! Stop by my blog too! I always have a giveaway going!

Oh yah! A quilt giveaway is sooo much better than basketball. Thanks.

Amo el basketball, me encanta verlo, aunque a veces se me hacen muy largos por lo que acolchar o bordar esta bien para mi.
Incluyame en el sorteo.

I just love Basketball season, and football season and baseball season and racing. I don't watch them, I go to my sewing room and hubby is so glued to the TV that he never notices that I am gone.

Rowlesgirl said...

Hi, I am not really a fan of March Madness but I will watch a game here and there if my hubby does. I new to quilting and have spent a ton of money on supplies already so I couldn't resist posting to have a chance to win goodies!
Thanks, Melissa

too bad the Harlem Globetrotters don't get to compete in March Madness ... i love to watch them play

Sarcastic Quilter said...

I am a March Madness freak, I admit it. I love college basketball and watch the tournament religiously yelling at the teams I picked to stop playing so poorly. My sewing and quilting grind to a halt. Does that mean I can't enter, though? ;)

omashee aka Barb said...

Hi Elaine, what a wonderful idea! March madness! Please enter me in your giveaway.

Greg said...

So umm I could probably be shot for this but I really don't care for sports. I prefer to be creative not kill brain cells in front of the TV.. Thanks for the give away chance.

Mary said...

Hi Elaine,

This sounds like fun. I hope I do better than when I fill out my annual brackets for the tournament! Thank you for the opportunity to play the game!

Mary

Karen said...

Put my name in the hat, please!

WoolenSails said...

I am lucky, my husband works nights, so I don't have to watch games;)

In MN March Madness also encompasses the high school hockey tournaments (boys and girls) on TV. We are inundated with sports!

Patty said...

I read about your prayer quilt and that is one of the nicest things I've heard to do while tying a baby quilt. They are so blessed. As for the March Madness, I am not a sports fan, but I can hide away in my sewing room and have lots of fun.

LiahonaGirl said...

Beware of the ides of March! I'm the only one in the family who isn't a b-ball fan (and my mom is the biggest fan). Quilting is the perfect alternative! Please include me in the fun.

Mary said...

My house becomes Basketball Central during the tournament, with brackets being filled and compared and lots of game talk. I usually fill out the bracket just to join along and do a different system each year, such as picking the team first in the alphabet, or by the cutest mascot, etc. Sometimes I do really well! Thanks for a fun giveaway.

Pokey said...

Thank you, Elaine for your blog. I enjoy reading along. Put me in, sounds like fun!
