The publishers of Jennifer Chiaverini’s new novel, The Giving Quilt, asked if I would review her yet to be released novel and host a giveaway!  Of course I said yes!  Not only do I love to read, I love hosting giveaways on my blog!



Here’s a blurb from the publishers:

At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is “Quiltsgiving,” a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters—a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt shop clerk among them—gather for a special winter session of quilt camp to make quilts for Project Linus.

Each quilter, ever mindful that many of her neighbors, friends, and family members are struggling through difficult times, uses her creative gifts to alleviate their collective burden. As the week unfolds, the quilters respond to Sylvia’s provocative question in ways as varied as the life experiences that drew them to Elm Creek Manor. Love and comfort are sewn into the warm, bright, beautiful quilts they stitch, and their stories collectively consider the strength of human connection, and its rich rewards.

Featuring not only well-loved characters but intriguing newcomers, The Giving Quilt will remind us all: Giving from the heart blesses the giver as much as the recipient, and while giving may not always be easy, it is always worthwhile.


The Giving Quilt is a great read and if you’ve been waiting for her stories to go back to Elm Creek Manor and Sylvia, you won’t be disappointed.  Even though the book has a quilting theme, anyone would enjoy this novel.

The book is scheduled to be released October 30, 2012, and I would like to give my advance copy to one lucky reader!

How can you win?  Easy!  Leave a comment about your favorite time to read on this post before midnight CST, October 28, 2012.  My DH will draw the winner from a hat Monday, October 29, 2012.

Good luck!  🙂 Linda

And the winners are….

It’s time to draw the winners of my  Blog Hop Giveaway!

A big thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway and “hi” to my new followers!   I was sure the purse/tote pack was leading but in the end the quilt pack had 3 more comments.

My selecting system was very low tech, (writing all the names on a slip of paper), I had fun re-reading the comments and visiting the comment makers blogs!

And I discovered a new site stat that shows what country my blog visitors are in.   Last week, my blog was visited by readers from 30 different countries!  Isn’t that amazing!

My spring break visiting daughter drew the winners and…..(drum roll….)

The winner of the purse pack is:

Kathy A –   “#1 purse pack would be GREAT! I hope I win! thanks”

The winner of the quilt pack is:

Mary –  “I’d love to win the quilt patterns!Thanks for the chance.”

Oops!! And a Thank-you!

Oops!! And a Thank-you!

A big thank you to Kristen at Ten Quilts for informing me that my comment for her giveaway showed as a “no-reply” blogger!  Oops!!!  I don’t know how it happened but my email had been “removed” from my Blogger profile.  Thanks to Kristen, I have fixed it but my earlier Blog Hop comments are probably still labeled as “no reply”.  Oh well, it happens!

Another thank you to everyone who has entered my Blog Hop giveaway!  There is still time to enter!   My daughter is visiting from college and she will draw the winners on Sunday!  I will notify the winners by email ASAP!

Hope you have a great weekend planned, I will be celebrating with visiting family!  I might get some sewing or LAQ mixed in there, too.  Thanks for looking and just keep stitchin’ !  Linda
