Show And Tell Day Is Here Today For The Christmas Caroling Row Along…

Christmas Caroling Row AlongJust like those of you who visit today I to am excited to see what’s been up with the other bloggers and designers who put some of the rows together this summer.

Part of the requirement to participate in the row along each year is that designers must turn in their designed pattern drafts by a specific date in early June… This allows the patterns to be passed among the other participating designers and those wanting to create something for this day in the event can do so. That’s how the Show and Tell day came about for the row along.

For me, I had planned to finish my tutorial, but I keep forgetting that I can’t lift anything, or use my left hand well. Its funny how when we are injured, we still go about trying to do things we think we can do and then realize, you really are limited. When I had my surgery Friday, I came home with oxygen because my breathing was not at the right numbers after the surgery, and my left arm felt literally like it wasn’t there due to something they put in me that they call a block. What it does it make you feel like that part of the body isn’t here for about 24-30 hours after the surgery. I had to stay on the oxygen thru the weekend, severely limiting what I could get done. Suffice it to say, all my plans for Saturday and Sunday were shot by sitting on the couch all weekend. So I will post the tutorial later this week.

Most of the giveaways are international shipping this year
in some cases, you will be asked to pay for shipping your giveaways.
I am not rich and I do not ask sponsors for money, they provide prizes only.
If they shipped the prize to me, you will be asked to pay for shipping.
All giveaways will be shipped that are in my home within 48 hours of my having heard from you.

An invoice will be sent to you via Paypal, and shipping will take place via Paypal, so your Paypal email will be needed to send the invoice. You will receive a tracking number except for overseas shipments. All shipping will either be first class which averages out at 2.77 to 4.00 up to 13 ounces. Paypal fees are added to that amount to cover that fee. All fabric bundles from Michael Miller, Hoffman, and Moda will be shipped via Priority Mail to protect the fabric itself.

Please note, every effort is made to protect the prizes. They go into a plastic bin when I receive them, and it is covered by an air tight cover. I have a dog in my home and I have a smoker in my home, so I do everything possible to protect the prizes.

Most companies are very good about getting prizes off to customers quickly also, but some companies are overseas, so please allow all sponsors a 2-week time period before you report to me that you still haven’t received your prize. When the company is overseas, it can take 6 weeks to 90 days for an item to also arrive.

Whether or not you read the above, the rules for giveaways are in place to protect everyone. I do not want to hear you didn’t read them, they will be posted on my blog daily during each featured day. There is no excuse for not reading them.

  1. Thanks again for a fun blog hop! I hope your wrist heals up fast so you can get back to doing what you love.

  2. Just an FYI: I am just wondering why to cost of the patterns vary so much??? Some are as little as $2.49 and others as high as $15.00? I was very confused at the beginning of the BOM and didn’t realize there were so many each day (I thought there was only one each row for each day) so I didn’t really “catch on” until I had already missed a lot of them. SO, when I went back to try and find them, I either had a hard time with the link taking me to the right place in the Bloggers blog, the link no working (because the pattern was already removed) or being sent to BUY the pattern on Craftsy. I don’t really mind buying some of the patterns, but I can’t really afford to pay almost $20 for 1 row. Just saying…. I guess next year I will be more prepared. I REALLY LOVE CHRISTMAS and was very excited for this…..

  3. Thanks for having the Blog hop! Although I haven’t made any of the rows yet, I plan to in the near future. You designers are so creative.
