At Last, A Blog Post (and a giveaway!)


Due to new works in the studio...
...my blogging/tweeting/facebooking has pretty much fallen apart. You know how it is!

I’ve requested that Franny and Lou form a blue-ribbon panel to investigate my drop in blogging productivity. They set to work right away. Lou tried to find a reason buried under this big pile of bubble wrap:
He was sure there was something there, but he just couldn't put his paws on it. Franny was still suspicious and stared me down a few times trying to get me to talk. It almost worked (just look at those eyes!).
They kept looking around in every corner. Nothing in this one either...
They did spot a fresh coat of paint in my studio space...
...and this cute little tree...
...but Franny and Lou said the rest of their findings won’t be forthcoming until hibernation season is over — following groundhog day. Silly kitties!
Luckily, our cousin in Ireland’s dog has offered to fill in
as the provisional authority. He’s barked some orders at me to thank you all for sticking with me through this quiet time and insisted that i spread some holiday cheer by randomly selecting two people to win a dessert role or charm pack of Honey Honey. Please leave a comment that includes your favorite winter holiday story, movie or tv special. My favorite story would have to be The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. I loved those beautiful, ethereal illustrations. But then again, i also loved the tv show Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town — the one with the winter warlock and scarfed penguin! Anyway, please have your entries in by midnight this Friday, December 14th and winners will be announced on Saturday morning.

Cheers!

  10. I love It's a Wonderful Life, especially when Mary and George sing Buffalo Girls. I watched it again a couple days ago and Jimmy Stewart seemed much more wild-eyed this viewing than in previous viewings, but it is still a lovely old movie.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  24. So glad you're back! I had been wondering and figured you probably had alot of work to do. My favorite, even though I'm grown up, is Charlie Brown's Christmas. What I really want to know is what is in the first picture at the top? Is it next year's Christmas line or something for this year that I should scoot out and find?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Growing up in the days before VCRs, etc., I always looked forward to the month of December because that's when all the great Christmas movies came on and that's the only time you ever got to see them. As a little girl I loved any movies that had singing and dancing. and White Christmas had it all. To this day, its still my favorite movie of all time.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My favorite again since I now have grandchildren is The Polar Express.

    ReplyDelete

  37. I'm all about Elf and White Christmas. Totally opposite ends of the spectrum for whatever mood you are in!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the Charlie Brown Christmas special, and play the soundtrack in my sewing room all through the month of December. There is also a short story by Truman Capote called (I think) A Christmas Memory, and it is a gem. I used to read it aloud to my high school students the day before our break, and often couldn't read the ending for crying. Several students read the ending for me it while I composed myself. Thanks for the chance to win some great fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Not really a Christmas show, but always feels that way to me! When I was a kid, the BBC made an adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which I made my OH buy on DVD a couple of years ago. Maybe it's the snow and the fur coats.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I always love the Christmas Story of Christ's birth. The movie I like to watch is "It's A Wonderful Life".

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love Santa Clause is coming to Town also, it's always been favorite. And so is A Christmas Story ,we have to watch that every year. Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the Snowman too, and bought the soundtrack. Love the animated Grinch Who Stole Christmas as it was the first book I learned to read. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Nice to "see" you back here! My all time favorite Christmas flick is "Santa Claus the Movie" with Dudley Moore... so good! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've missed hearing about you, but even more so, I've been in kitty picture withdrawal! Who knew Franny and Lou were such stars?!? My favorite story is the "Cajun Night Before Christmas", read aloud. It is awesome! Hope you have a great holiday! I finally finished my brother's duvet cover our of Fandango that I started almost a year ago...and if my mom ever takes pictures of it for me (since I finished it after I was already supposed to be on the way to the airport), I'll be posting about it on my blog. I think you'll really love how I used your fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love all of the Christmas music specials. Michael Buble's last night was fabulous...

    ReplyDelete
  46. I loved the Christmas Train by David Baldacchi. Actually, I love everything by him, but that's his only Christmas book!

    ReplyDelete
  47. We watch "Scrooge" the musical every year and sing along!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's not officially the Christmas season for me until I have watched White Christmas. Of course I know every lyric to every song.... just got to keep working on those dance routines (The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing..... love that scene mucho!)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love A Christmas Story! Somehow, I didn't see it until I was 18, and has been one of my favorites every since. We also love The Grinch (cartoon one), and always have it on while we decorate our tree, but after Christmas this year I think it is going to get put away with the decorations...my 3 year old likes it a little too much...

    ReplyDelete

  54. Thank you for the giveaway. My favorite book to read this time of year is Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher. It is such a great story of people--strangers almost, coming together for the holiday. I read it every year and I feel like I'm visiting "friends" each year--the characters are so well drawn.

    Thanks again,

  57. Aww, we missed you Kate! My favorite Christmas movie is It's a Wonderful Life, and it doesn't feel like Christmas unless I sit down at some point and watch it- and I shed a tear at the end every time- such a great reminder as to what the season is really all about- being with the ones you love.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the Peanuts special :) cute, but still gets the point across!

  59. The animated Grinch is my favorite. Classic!

    ReplyDelete
  60. There are so many wonderful Christmas stories and I loved reading the diversity in comments here. Each year, my husband and I find a children's book that focuses on a special meaning for Christmas - some religious-based and some more about the spirit of giving - to send to our siblings' families. This year's choice is _The Carpenter's Gift_ by David Rubel. It is a truly amazing story. But fair warning - it made me cry right there in the bookstore as we read it!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love a good laugh at Christmas and A Christmas Story fits the bill. I grew up in the 1950s and can relate.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think Elf! is a great Christmas film...so funny!

    ReplyDelete
  63. i'm a frosty girl - old school cartoon of course, i'm also SO excited for honey honey!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Of course, my favorite movie is A Christmas Story. Love the Bumpus dogs. Makes me laugh everytime.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Isn't the company of our furry companions just the best! The don't judge and they just want to share their love with us! Speaking of love, I am in love with what I can see of your studio space! You chose a completely chill color and it really accentuates the hardwood floors! I think the Snowman is wonderful, but Ziggy's gift is probably my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love White Christmas with Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby :) Classic!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Such a sweet post! I figured the Storm may have had something to do with it...but I consoled myself with visions of Honey Honey! Really!!! Glad you're "back"! The movie that is our household favorite is hands down, "The Christmas Story"! Every scene is a classic!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Just one! I guess my favorite where I just laugh every time has to be Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation. I am partial to Olive the Other Reindeer book also ;o) Thanks for the chance to win your lovely fabric!!! Happy holidays....now where is that movie? kristie

    ReplyDelete
  71. My favorite Christmas movie is The Muppet Christmas Carol. I watch it every year with my grands when they come for Thanksgiving. It kicks off our Christmas season.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  74. I love the movie The Shop Around The Corner. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  75. Welcome back - lovely to catch up with the furry ones - I have one that could be Franny's body double who likes to curl up under the Christmas tree. Christmas Movies - my sons love Polar Express and we have to save it for Christmas Eve. I love the illustrations(both the movie and the book). We have bells low on the tree so that Tess (the furry one) can make them jingle. My eldest enlists in the navy early next year, so hopefully, it can become a bit of a family tradition. I also love Miracle on 34th Street (with David Attenborough as Kris Kringle, Dylan McDermott and Elizabeth Perkins). Love that movie. Mostly love the messages to "believe" in most Christmas movies. Best wishes to you and your family for a lovely Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love Rudolph and White Christmas. Watch the kitties with the tree. My kitty has pine sap on her head! Every year this happens and she doesn't like me to laugh about it, but it is funny. She also loves to drink the water out of the stand.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story. Rudolph will always be up there also, brings back good memories. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway and chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  80. My favorite story is A Wish for Wings that Work: An Opus Christmas story by Berkley Breathed. I love that penguin! My favorite Christmas movies in order the original Miracle on 34th Street, Christmas Vacation, and The Christmas Story! I have to add one more story (I am an Elementary librarian) The Amazing Christmas Extravaganza by David Shannon-awesome read!

    ReplyDelete
  81. As a kid I also loved Santa Claus is Coming to Town. If I'm not mistaken, it was narrated by Burl Ives. That voice! Today, I'm a total sap for any of those Christmas movies on Lifetime or Hallmark channel. They all seem to make me cry!

    ReplyDelete
  82. My favorite movie is Christmas in Connecticut with Barbara Stanwyck followed by White Christmas and A Christmas Carol with Allistar Sim.

    I'm am now headed to the laundry room to get some bubble wrap for Cricket my cat to play with. She's still a kitten and I don't think she's ever seen it. This should be good for some laughs.

    ReplyDelete

  85. My daughter and I watch Christmas Vacation together every year. (although she now lives about 9 hours away) We laugh together like a couple of lunatics at the same parts, year after year. We know the dialog by heart. My husband thinks we are nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Welcome back! I know how busy you have been feeling as my daughter just got married this past weekend, and I have been buried in wedding details and making things like dresses and the cake and other treats for quite a while. It feels good to move on to other things.
    I woke up to the harsh reality that Christmas is two weeks from today!! When did that happen? Anyway, time to embrace the joy of the season, and one way to do it is to watch "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". My favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  91. My favorite Christmas story from my childhood is Santa Mouse.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Winter Warlock! heeheehee! I'd forgotten all about him! I think my favorite though is A Christmas Carol. All the versions are good, and so different from each other.

    I liked seeing your kitties, aren't they fun at Christmas? Our cats like to lounge under the tree and rest their heads against the packages. :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. Curling up on the couch with my son, to watch "Home Alone" 1 or 2. I LOVE to hear a child laugh, big belly laughs. I enjoy the movie but, I love watching my son enjoy the movie, even more. Glad your back, we missed you. Franny has the biggest most beautiful eyes. Merry! Merry! Toni Anne

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love the original "Grinch who stole Christmas" and Frosty the snow man. It just isn't Christmas season until I see them!

    Thanks for sharing the pics of your fur faced friends! They are adorable! And the color of your studio walls is almost the same as our living room. I love it because it is so versatile!

  109. I've always loved White Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life but I have a soft spot for The Bishop's Wife. There is such an innocence about it. Plus, how can you not enjoy a movie with Cary Grant in it?!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I just watched Santa Claus is Coming to Town..that's always been my favorite, and of course, It's a Wonderful Life..So many memories of watching these with my grown children..my 44 yr. old son passed away suddenly in Oct. We are just trying to get through this season of missing him, and knowing that our Christmas will never be the same again. I miss him so much, it hurts..we are not supposed to outlive our precious children.

  114. I always enjoyed watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas" with my son when he was young.

    ReplyDelete
  115. My absolute favorite is "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Growing up, we always sat down as a family and watched it and I can't wait to continue the tradition with my daughter, especially now that she is 20 months old and getting old enough to "get" what is going on in a TV show. By the way, I love the design on the side of your blog - I'm loving Cuzco so much & can't wait to cut into it! I have already used it for a pieced quilt backing, but I want to do much, more more with it! Thanks for the chance to win!

  151. One of my favorite Christmas stories is, The Polar Express. I still remember when my 3rd grade teacher read it to our class to see if we wanted to vote for it for the Caldecott medal. We sat spellbound as she read and as she slowly turned the pages for us to see the illustrations. Then when the story was over she asked us who wanted to vote for it and everyone in the class raised their hands high. It was magical.
