Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade Link-up Page!

"Lend yourself to others, but give yourself to yourself." --Michel de Montaigne

So here it is everyone!  The Link-up for the Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade 2016!  I know I am going to be perfectly pleased with all the entries--so come on and show us your pretties!


 
 The Link-up will open on September 5th and close on September 15th so you will have 10 days to post and link-up your page.  A list of Rules will follow the list of prizes.....or do you want the Rules first???? I didn't think so!

So first let me thank Kimberly and Melody and all our friends at Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring the Parade with our First Place Prize!  Our first place winner will get a $50 gift Certificate from FQS!!!!! I want to invite you all to click the link above or click on the FQS Gift Certificate below to go visit them and see all the fabric and fun stuff they have for you to drool over!

http://www.fatquartershop.com/
 
Our Second Place Prize is this yummy Moda jelly roll by Me and My Sister Designs----I love these colors!
 
 
 
 The Third Place winner can choose between two quilting books and accompanying fabric: 
 
 First  we have 3 Times the charm! by Me and My Sister Designs.........there are 7 different quilt designs with 3 examples of each......and we'll get the winner started on her first design by sending along a Moda Charm Pack of "Ho!Ho!Ho!" by Deb Strain with the book.
 
 
Or............if the 3rd place winner likes this book instead..........we will send out fat quarter quilts along with 4 fat quarters in chevron prints by Riley Blake Designs!


Our 4th place winner will take home whichever of the two prizes above is left when 3rd place chooses their prize.
 
Honorable mention winners can choose between winning a Christmas Fat Quarter Bundle or a Halloween Fat Quarter Bundle.........
 
 
And we have more prizes!!!! Remember "Mom How Do I boil Water".........and that nifty Gardening Journal Set?
 

 
 
And we have sewing notions and patterns to give away...........everybody who enters will win something!
 
So Now the Rules:
 
 
As I said before........Link-up will run for 10 days and winners will be randomly selected.  If you don't link-up you can't win.
 
I have included a "grab my button" on my side bar.  If you post it to your blog you get another chance to win...........Comment here and let me know you grabbed it!
 
If you blog about this link-up you will get another chance to win........Tell me about it in a comment on this post.   That's 3 chances to win!  How about it?  Go out....spread the news....then come back, link-up and win!!

I'm so glad I found out about this pincushion parade. I really love pincushions, and have lots and lots of them. I like to make them, and to receive them through swaps. I'll come back to link up in a couple of days.

Just made it to the Parade! Thanks for hosting this fun link-up. I've linked up in my post and added you to my side bar. Now to go visiting everyone's blogs!

Julie Fukuda said...

I'm not sure I can figure out how to do this, but I have some very unique (very old and dingy vintage ... should I say more ... ones.)
Then I just checked and it is the 15th here in Tokyo. I guess I am off the hook but it sure looks like everyone is having a lot of fun.
Keep the fun coming and one of these days I will get my act together.

Lisa Marie said...

Thanks so much for hosting this parade! It inspired me to make some pincushions plus it gave me the chance to see and be inspired by the ones others made. Win-win!
