Whirl into Winter Giveaway

I think winter whirled in here quite a while ago but now it's time for the Whirl into Winter giveaway hosted by Debi!
My giveaway is going to be a crayon roll...which is yet to be made. It will hold a dozen crayons and will be trimmed with ric rac. I may make two and give them both away - we'll see!
So leave a comment here, telling me what your favorite winter sport is, sometime by the 15th of January and I'll do the drawing sometime that day.
Oh and don't forget to click on the snowflake on the right of the blog to enter in all the other 60+ giveaways!
As soon as I get the prize made I'll be posting pictures. :o)

ETA: They're finished! I even found some cute coloring books to go with them.
1st place winner will get first pick and 2nd place winner will get the other one. Good luck!



And the winners are.....(drumroll).....Janice and Peggy! Congratulations ladies!

My favorite winter spot is hockey. Did you see the game today Chicago vs Detroit...outside at a makeshift rink at Wrigley Field...awesome. My granddaughter (who is 1/2 Canadian) would love a crayon holder!

My favorite winter sport is figure skating. I still love to watch it, but unfortunately, I'm too old and stiff to do it any more!! Not that I was ever very good at it ... but it was fun!!

Kaye said...

I used to go sledding with the kids, ice skating and even tried skiing once. That was long ago before this old body started to play tricks on me. Now my favorite sport is staying warm and lots of Quilting. Happy New Year

My favorite winter sport is living in the south! Does that count? We had our brush with cold weather and it just reminded me that I made the right decision in moving from the midwest. If that doesn't count... then using my treadmill or doing my pilates videos... in doors of course!

Mary said...

My favorite winter sport is ice skating. Don't do it anymore, but love to watch it on tv. We don't really have winter here in the South, but we do have an indoor ice rink.

Fiesta said...

I think my favourite winter sport is hockey, although I love watching all kinds of them. When the last winter Olympics were held, I came out of the hospital following surgery on the day they started. What a great way to recover from surgery watching the Olympics!

Katy said...

My favorite winter sport is ice skating. :) I don't do it often, and it's always inside a skating rink, but it is always fun!

Sandi said...

My favorite winter sport would be ice skating, I'm sure, but I never learned how to ice skate. Instead as a kid, we went roller skating at a rink nearby. Loved it!!! Haven't been on roller skates in years. I guess now my winter sport is walking my dog. We may live in MN but don't do any skiing or snowmobiling!! I like winter for cozying up in my sewing room!! Your color rolls are really cute!!

Codi said...

Shelley said...

Those crayon rolls are on my to-do list, so I would love to win one and save myself the job LOL. I've lived in snow all my life here in northern Maine and I'm sort of anti snow activity although I LOVE when it snows and makes everything pretty! It feels so cozy in by the fire and maybe baking a batch of cookies....I do love watching skating however. So that is my favorite sport...watching ice skating on TV.

I guess that would be football--it might as well be, huh! LOL
Thanks girl and great give away.

cedar chest quilts said...

Texas doesn't really have enough winter, snow or ice to have a winter sport. So crochet is my winter sport, I only like to crochet when it's cold enough. I love your crayon rolls, especially the rick rack--I couldn't get the hang of putting rick rack on the ones I made. Angie

lindanuts said...

the winter sport i participate in is handsewing--embroidery, cross-stitch, blanket stitch.
I like to watch ice skating but hubby usually has football or basketball on. Is watching the grandkids throw snowballs a sport?

Liz said...

I love your little crayon rolls. My favorite winter sport is skiing but I don't do it anymore. Now I'm a spectator. I don't think my old bones would hold me up. Kind of like balancing a potato on two stubby baby carrots. (nice visual huh?) :o)
