Happy July 25 - five months from Christmas Day, if you can believe it! Sadly, this is the last week we will be celebrating Christmas in July here on the blog. I've gotta tell you, I have enjoyed doing this so much, and hearing from everyone with the various questions you have all answered.
Alas, all good things must end - but not before the final giveaway, which is just a little bit different than the other packages. This is what the winner will be receiving.
It's a project bag starring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the version from the Rankin-Bass show that is my very favorite one in the world! Here is a closeup of the fabric:
I love it so! It's from Molly Klein Design, a great shop on Etsy with pretty yarn and some fabulous project bags. You may wonder why, if I love it so, I'm using it for a giveaway. Well, I ordered one for myself last year when I saw them, but I inadvertently placed two different orders for the same thing. Rather than go to the trouble of returning it, I decided to keep it for a gift, which of course I promptly forgot. But as it turns out, that's to your advantage!
What is different this time, is that what you receive will have some added mystery, as the best gifts from Santa Claus do. Because I'm showing you the project bag, but - WHAT WILL BE INSIDE??? It could be anything - Candy? Yarn? Patterns? A lovely photo of me? Books? Money? (OK, I can tell you for sure that it will not contain money, but you get the drift.)
In order to be eligible to win this somewhat mysterious package, tell me your answer to this question in the comments:
What is your very favorite and least favorite holiday food? I don't mean just Christmas, but for instance, do you really like July 4th potato salad, but you could definitely skip the mincemeat pie that your Aunt Mildred brings for Thanksgiving? Let me know!
I'll choose a winner at random on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at 5 p.m. EDT - good luck, everyone!
