Giving Thanks – Quilters’ Blog Hop Party

Welcome to the Giving Thanks Blog Hop with Give-Aways!!!  How fun is this?  I'm so excited to have the the opportunity to meet penitential new friends and fellow bloggers. 


Welcome to the IHAN® blog.  For those of you who are visiting, IHAN® stands for "I Have A Notion®" which is an Internet based market for all of your Sewing, Quilting and Machine Embroidery needs.  Our claim to fame is that we are not interested in "selling" to consumers.... we are only interested in educating our customers so they will be satisfied and use the things they purchase from us.  You might want to check out what people say about their shopping experiences, CLICK HERE.  

Enough about that...lets get on with the Giveaway, shall we?

Our Giveaway is a very fun pair of Rayon Batik Patchwork Pants in your choice of size Medium, Large or Ex Large.

Since my ankle was broken on Oct. 12th I have spent much of my time in lounge clothes.  My absolutely hands down favorite thing to wear are my Patchwork Pants.  They wash well and are extremely comfortable.    The Patchwork Pants have been added to IHAN® for the holidays.   I couldn't think of anything more fun than a free pair of lounge pants that will make you smile and others will ask, hey did you make those?  


Gratitude is a wonderful gift that helps the human spirit look beyond our immediate concerns and experiences.  Gratitude provides a mini vacation from all that troubles us.  Gratitude transforms what we have and what we experience into "enough" and it fills our spirit.  For me, it is more than saying Thank You....it is about living and exuding Thank You.

I am so GRATEFUL to be able to participate in the Giving Thanks Quilters Blog Hop Party and I'd love to know how you experience Gratitude.  Please leave a comment on this post telling me how you experience gratitude and I'll draw a winner using the Random Number Generator after midnight on Nov. 26th (so basically on Nov. 27th :).  If you would like to have an additional chance to win, become a follower on the IHAN® blog and leave an additional comment telling me that you are a follower and you'll be entered twice....it's that easy.

I would be very remiss if I did not THANK Michelle from the Quilting Gallery for organizing this very fun opportunity.  THANK YOU MICHELE!!! :)

You can find a list of all the participants of the Quilters Blog Hop Party by clicking HERE!

THANK YOU for visiting and I wish you an Endless Bounty of Blessings!

Smiles,
Kelly
