Spring Break!

Yay! It is spring break time here in Idaho. And we are taking advantage and going someplace warm! Hallelujah! Since I will be gone and missing all of you, I thought we would have a little giveaway. Can't go wrong with a giveaway. It will end on Sunday, March 21. To enter, leave a comment about what you are going to do or would like to do for your spring break. Second chance, leave another comment saying you are a follower. Easy, right?


Okay, so what am I going to give away? A fat quarter bundle of 10 prints from the Katie Jump Rope line from Denyse Schmidt. Such a fun line! Here are a few ideas for you to make with the fabric when you win:

Going away to some place warm. Oh my, that sounds so wonderful. I don't have a spring break here, but if I did, I definitely would go looking for some sun!

craftydill said...

It's Spring Break here in Iowa too! Enjoy the warm weather!

my kids aren't in school yet, so no spring break here, but I think it's warm enough for daily trips to the beach now, so I think we'll be covered in sand for the next several months....

Katie said...

We're going to South Korea for our "spring break" but it's about the same weather as here in Boston. Really though, I'd love to go somewhere tropical, like Hawaii or the Caribbean.

Katie said...

For SPRING BREAK-going to a wedding! What I really want to do is paint our master bedroom (this will make the 3rd coat of paint in two years). I gave my husband beautiful 700 thread count sheets that match his gorgeous eyes, and I want the room to be more about us.

Jennilyn said...

OKAY-now I am a public follower of your blog. I have you on my sidebar as a link "More blogs I read" but now it is official.

I love LOVE this fabric line. I love your projects and inspiration.

Kat said...

For my spring break I would like to sew and quilt to my little heart's content. Unfortunately, I'm writing a thesis instead (yuck).

Kat said...

Already following. Thanks for the giveaway!

Katherine said...

Spring break doesn't happen to stay at home mommies who have pre-school age kids. But I'm going to clean the house, go through all the closets and get a couple of bags of old baby clothes ready for Goodwill in the next couple of weeks. :) (I love cleaning out closets, it's a strange obsession of mine).

Our spring break, or "March break" as we call it here up in Canada, is about to start and the weather is getting gorgeous just in time. Unfortunately I'll be working as usual, but I'm sure I'll find time to enjoy the lovely weather after work.

Thanks for the giveaway!

We're going up to my mom's place for spring break. Always nice to be up there and get spoiled for a week :)

Lacey said...

We are not doing anything but what I would love to do for Spring Break is to go on a cruise. Getting pampered with no kids around sounds so good to me right now!!! Plus it's snowing here right now!

Karen said...

My husband's deployed and coming home on Sat., so we're looking forward to a simple spring break at home,...and probably starting on all those spring to-do list projects in the backyard. Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm going to play at the park with my children. We are in desperate need of vitamin D and some outside play time.

9patchnurse said...

Spring break?! Will it ever come to Maryland? I still have snow in my yard, waaah. I am going to go outside in short sleeves, get my capris out of the closet, close my eyes, and turn my face up towards the sun.

Let's see, spring break at the university where I work was last week, spring break at the university where I'm finishing up my master's degree is this week, and my daugher's spring break is a few weeks away. I'd love to be going to a nice beach somewhere and drink frozen beverages while slathered in spf 50.
Pretty fabrics and pretty quilts.

No spring break here in Australia. The Autumn nip is in the air. End of 1st term school holidays start at Easter. My 6yr old grandaughter and I will be cutting into her stash and she will make her 1st proper quilt. Katie Jump Rope would add to her stash. (mine really!) Also an 8yr old grandaughter from out of town will be staying with me for the holidays. Maybe 2 quilts will get done.

Great ideas for using that fabric! Would love to win it! Would love to go to Florida for a Spring break - no time off work - so I get to wait until June!

Laura said...

I follow you on Google Reader :)

My plans for spring break are to finish the quilt top I'm working on for my youngest daughter and to keep the older two busy with lots of crafty goodness so they won't bounce off the walls or get bored :)

Aelysium said...

Today is our last day of spring break. I've had my little sisters over at my house for the past week, and we've been having a blast. The weather was even warm enough for picnics some of the time!

I just wish I had a spring break! If I did, I'd road trip anywhere - I've been itching to go on a long, long drive.

Anna said...

Katie said...

Ooh - I've been thinking about that a lot lately. I'd either try to go to NYC - we could drive - so it would be cheap(er) - or go all out and go somewhere like Spain.

Katie said...

Elizabeth said...

Sadly, I will be working. But I do plan to take a day off to go see the new elephant home at the San Diego Zoo with my sons.

Dee said...

Enjoy, enjoy! Bring some warmth back to the states that start with the letter "I". I have three kids doing three different things for school with no concurrent spring break...so I won't be doing anything! LOL

Thanks for the chance to win such cool fabric!

Well first, I'd like to HAVE a Spring Break. My son's a toddler and my husband and I have jobs that aren't tied to the school year, so no break for us. We're starting to yearn for a visit to the beaches of Lake Michigan (my husband has family in SW MI).

My Spring break is being spent on several things. Planting garden, flowers, and general yard spruce up - the weather has warmed up. And, piecing a scrap quilt top (from ps I quilt strings) of course. Would love to have some Katie Jump Rope fabric to use in a quilt.
