A Party and some voting!

Note: This giveaway is now closed....thank you so much for your interest!
Party, party --- who doesn't love a good party?!
Michelle at Quilting Gallery is hosting a blog hop! You've probably seen these badges around blogland:


Today is the start of the blog hop! And we are giving away a charm pack of Kate Spain's lovely Terrain line for Moda! All you need to do is leave us a comment telling us what your favorite Christmas food is! And if you are a follower, you can leave a second entry. 
Easy peasy --- two entries per person! The giveaway will end on December 17th!



Finally, in a bit of shameless self-promotion, I am hoping that you will dash over to the Quilting Gallery and check out the Christmas table runners . . . and of course, I would LOVE for you to vote for mine! 


You can see it on this post, too. Even if you don't vote for mine, go and have a look at all of them - they're wonderful!  If you do vote for mine, I'll be  eternally grateful very, very honored!!
Please bear with me if I don't get each comment answered - the elves and I are super busy in the workshop this weekend! :)
Love,

  19. my favorite christmas foods are danish christmas dinner foods ( my family had a pork roast ( with the rind on it) sugar glazed new potatoes, now I can't remember the veggie, but for dessert- a rice pudding with almonds! a tradition in DK is that the rice pudding has ONE whole almond in the batch and who ever gets the whole almond, has to save it and show everybody at the end and then get an ALMOND gift, which is a game or something like that....when I was little, the grown ups would stick their tongue in their cheek and say SEE I GOT IT!! anyways, I'm here now and I make a combo/ american/ danish christmas dinner :-) love some sweet potato casserole!
