Let's Have A Giveaway!

I made a couple of autumnal/Thanksgiving themed potholders that I'm offering as a giveaway here on my blog.

Are your present potholders so dilapidated you'll be embarrassed to let your guests see them at Thanksgiving time?

Or have you been invited out for Thanksgiving Dinner and would like to take these as a small hostess gift?


The front of the potholders.


And the back.

They are machine pieced and machine quilted.  There's a layer of heat resistant fabric, along with a layer of batting, inside so you shouldn't worry about burning your little fingers while using them.  (Although, I did once try to take something out of the oven with one of my potholders that was wet.  Baaaad idea!)

The potholders are washable and dryable when needed.

This is Tuesday, the 6th of the month.  If you wish to have your name put in the hat for a chance to win these, please let me know in the comments section before Friday, the 9th, at 9 p.m. when my computer will be shut down for the night.

I'll draw a winner Saturday morning and post your name.

Even if you've never commented on my blog before (or comment regularly -- thank you!), feel free to enter your name for the drawing.  Anybody interested??

I would love to have a chance to win the lovely pot holders. I can gift to my son’s family. There are to good for my shabby place.
Thanks for your generosity.

Mama Pea said...

Michelle - You're wlecome! As far as the election outcomes go, whatever will be, will be and we'll all make the best of it. :o}

Kathy - You're welcome, too!

DDD - Don't be silly! They would be fine in your home, I know.

Myrna said...

They are is cute, my granddaughter who is now in her first home by her self would love them.
I knit but do not quilt. Hope you are all OK up there in the Frozen North! We are getting some cold weather now also.

Mama Pea said...

Myrna - How sweet of you to think of your granddaughter and her first home! We're having warm weather (too warm for those of us who love winter and snow). Temps in the 40s, lots of grayness and rain, rain, rain. Well, saves on shoveling and plowing right now, I guess!

These are beautiful, I’d love to be included.

What a thoughtful thing to offer to your readers. The best pair of potholders I ever had were given to me by a student for Christmas when I was an elementary school teacher. The family didn't have much, but the little girl's mother had made them for me. I still have them and use them 34 years later. I would love to have my name drawn for the beautiful potholders to use for Thanksgiving. CW from Iowa

Count me in, those pot holders are lovely!

Mama Pea said...

Ruth - You are included!

CWfromIowa - I know what you mean about the smallest of gifts meaning so very much. And the fact that you've had those gifted potholders all these years. What a wonderfully good memory.

Tired Hobby Farmer - Thank you, THF!

Charade said...

Beautiful potholders! I should leave my name out of the drawing, though, because my husband would either burn one or permanently stain them both in no time at all. He loves to cook, but everything he uses to cook with has some sort of permanent reminder that he's been in the kitchen.

Mama Pea said...

Charade - You said you "should" leave your name out of the drawing . . . but just because they will get used (that's what they are intended for!) is no reason to not take a chance on winning them. Shall I put your name in for the drawing?? Come on, live dangerously!

One can never have enough (of your) potholders! Love the fabrics!

Mama Pea said...

wisps of words, Lynne, and Susan - Gosh, I had no idea so many people would be in need of potholders! I sure am glad so many of you are interested in these. :o}

Rain said...

Mama Pea I'm sure you'll have MANY people interesting in those gorgeous potholders!!! I'm in! :)

Mama Pea said...

Rain - Many more names in the hat than I ever expected!

Chicken Mama - As the names come in, I cringe thinking, "But there can be only one winner!" And feel bad about that. :o( I have no more Thanksgiving-themed made, but I think I do have a couple Christmas ones . . .

Leigh said...

Mama Pea, they are gorgeous! I already have some of your potholder (highly treasured!) so I almost feel guilty saying I'm interested in these. But I am!

Mama Pea said...

Leigh - I'm so glad you entered. Besides, can anyone ever have enough potholders? I think we all need seasonal ones. That way they'll all last longer. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.)

Rain said...

It's no wonder Mama Pea, that is a really cool giveaway! I can't expect to win again but my fingers are crossed!!

Valerie Dibble said...

I've not posted on your blog before but am a faithful reader. I would love the opportunity to win this set of potholders. Unfortunately I lost all of my home made potholders to a house fire the beginning of the year. I am working to replace everything. Thank you for a lovely and informative blog.

Mama Pea said...

Valerie Dibble - Oh, Valerie, I am so sorry to hear of the devastation you must have faced with your house fire. Such a loss to go through. And thank you for being a reader of my blog, for commenting here and saying such nice things. Your name is in the hat!

Goatldi said...

Simply put simply beautiful! Yes please a sweet diversion to daily life events currently. Thank you. 😊

Mama Pea said...

Goatldi - Your name is in the hat. Any quick update you can give on your husband? Been thinking about you both . . .

Goatldi said...

Will email you at a later time. We are persevering. Very difficult times.
