My 100th post give away - day 4

Happy Valentines Day!

Are you having fun yet? I hope so! On to day 4! BTW, I think I've worked out how to get my posts in order again. Will find out if it works when I hit publish!

Today we are celebrating Christmas early.

I'm not really a Christmassy craft type person, so today you have the chance to win 3 Christmas fat quarters. I'm not even really sure where I got these fabrics from, and as lovely as they are, once again they are items that will just sit in my cupboard. A sad fate for any pretty fabric I feel!

Want a chance to win these festive fabrics? Leave a comment and tell me about your favourite Christmas tradition or ritual. Want extra chances to win? Put a post on your blog and put a link back to my blog and you will get two extra chances!

My favorite ritual is hanging my stocking, my mom made it for me when I was a baby. It is knit with a Santa that has a mohair beard. There is a chocolate stain in the toe that has been the since I was 8, every time I see that stain I have to smile.

Lovely fabric, but I have toooooo much Christmas fabric as it is. I really must do something with it all.

Don't put me in for this giveaway, I'm still pinning my hopes on the retro scraps from Day 2!

I love all things Christmas, it is one of my favourite times of the year, especially when I am organised and finish my shopping early.

This year coming I will have two small Children and I want to make an advent calender for them. DD will be old enough to understand I hope.

Mum is going to quilt them two Santa sacks. With such a young family we are still making our traditions as we go.

Hi my favourite Christmas thing is making fruit mince pies. My family loves my home made ones, just like my Mum used to make, and they are much nicer than the shop ones. I usually make 12 dozen in the middle of December and freeze them, so I can pull out half a dozen when people visit. I would love to win this Christmas material. regards from Perth Western Australia.

Oh please add me on this one I didn't join in yesterday as much as they were lovely I wouldn't use them, christmas however is a different matter.

We don't have a lot of things I'd call traditions but I do love doing the full Christmas roast dinner at home with just our family (and 'adopted' son/little brother), it's nice to have a day which is just for us.. Visiting family is left to other days something we enforced once we had our first child and as we have several sets of parents helps that they know we will not spend christmas day with any of them.

My favourite tradition is baking Finish Christmas biscuits - I learnt how to make them when on student exchange... 15yrs ago! Wow, I didn't realise I'd been doing them for that long. We are also like Emma and just starting to make our little rituals for Christmas as the children get older and more into it.

My favourite Christmas Tradition, was spending Chrissy Eve at my nans & looking for Santa's sleigh amongst the stars, as we no longer do this due to age catching everyone up and life & death interrupting the fun ~ I'm looking forward to the coming years and making my own traditions with my own little one.
Linked you again (if blogger co-operates!!!)

Hi! Favourite tradition with my husband is watching White Christmas on Christmas Eve by the fire, 25 years now.

Oh, these prints are beautiful. I've found your blog via Trash's bushfire raffle, via Kitty. Congrats on the 100th post. :) I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. My favorite christmas tradition is making christmas sugar cookies in the different festive shapes and decorating them with all colors of icing. I'm going to be posting a link to this giveaway just as soon as I finish looking at all the other goodies.
