Another Christmas Patchwork Giveaway

I love Christmas project books. And now you have another chance to win a book from Martingale filled with all sorts of cute holiday projects. This one is Season's Greetings by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. It's a sweet little book filled with cozy patchwork, applique and embroidery with a delightful whimsical style.



Aren't these projects cute? I really love the colors and scrappy fabrics Anni uses in her projects. 


I have a lot of fun making things for Christmas presents and I know some of you do too. Many of the projects in this book are simple and quick so they're perfect for gift giving. Too late for this year perhaps but there's always next. Projects include an Advent calendar, table top tree skirt, gift bags and a 12 days of Christmas stitchery. 


To enter your name for a chance to win this book, just leave me a comment telling me about an unusual Christmas gift you received. Include your name and a way for me to reach you by e-mail. Good luck! The winner will be announced on Wednesday, Dec 21.

Hi Kathy! I've been trying to think of an unusual Christmas gift I've received. What I am sharing is an usual Christmas gift I guess, although it was a wonderful Christmas gift. I think it was three years ago that I received it. My husband Mark and myself, love antique shops. So happened we stopped in a local one to us and my husband came across some antique German stork scissors. They are in very good shape and Mark purchased those for me for Christmas that year! I love those little scissors and am happy to call them mine now:) Also love that little book your offering a give away on and how fabulous it would be to win! Thanks Kathy<3

Hmm unusual Christmas gift. I received a wind up Woodstock from my brother. It's a small little one but sure made me laugh when I saw it.

I received a Dirt Bug from my brother. It's like a "mini" mini-bike. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

I received a karaoke machine simply because I lived singing in the car. I didn't see the humor in this and never used it

I am having trouble thinking of an unusual gift. This year my grandsons who live out of state sent my husband and I a Christmas card they had made. These boys are ages 5, 3 and 1. The card contained tracings of their hands with stickers on them. The 3 year old had one sticker on his but the other 2 hands were covered. The unusual thing about this was that the envelope was addressed by the 5 year old to "Grandma and Grandpa" with our address--no additional name information. The Postal Service did a great job getting it to us. Merry Christmas!

Ruth K. said...

I can't think of an unusual gift, mine have been mostly traditional, but that is a very interesting book, I would love to win. thanks for the opportunity to do so.

When I was about eleven years old I received a very unusual gift from my favorite Aunt. It was play stockings, and garter belt with jingle bells! My aunt is now 85 and she recently sent me a picture of me modeling the gift....so funny!!! Thank you for a chance to win this darling book,

The most unusual gift I received was four years ago when a friend refinished my Uncles old sewing machine and gifted it to me. It is an old Singer portable machine with a wooden cover. My bachelor Uncle used it to mend his clothes. It still works and I use it occasionally when I do old time demonstrations at fairs. sandybessingpas@ yahoo.com

Judy said...

Oh, haha. When my husband and I were first married and pretty poor, he gave me a pair of rubber gloves! I needed them, but the funniest part was I asked for small, and he messed up and got me large instead. They were falling off my hands. Now, we've been married for 53 years and he does a lot better!

Carolknits said...

I can't think of an unusual gift, but my best gift ever was a pair of skates that were much-wanted and never expected. This book would be another unexpected treasure.

Those are some nice projects. Would love to win. We don't exchange gifts at Christmas if we see something we want and can afford it we get it. Nancy P.

Straining my brain to think of something!! Guess I'm pretty ordinary ! I would love the book though!!

It's very hard to think of an unusual gift-you've done well with this prompt! I will tell you that I would love to win this book-it's been on my wishlist! Thanks for the chance! Lee_gifford@hotmail.com

marian said...

I love Anni's whimsical style and her use of muted tones gives everything a lovely vintagey look.
We were at a swap meet recently and i spotted a perfectly rusty old bicycle which i simply had to have... i love rusty treasures lol!! To my delight DH bought it for me saying 'this is your Chrissy present'.. i was thrilled to bits LOL!!

Debra said...

The most unusual, not to mention unexpected, Christmas gift that I can remember was one that I received as a child. One Christmas morning, I found a child-sized comb-back Windsor rocking chair under the tree. I thought that it was beautiful, and I spent many evenings rocking as I watched TV. When I outgrew it, my mother passed it along to a relative, but I truly wish that I still had that chair...perfect for displaying my little quilts! Thank you for another wonderful giveaway!

Beth said...

When we were first dating, my sweetheart gave me a little car vacuum. Unusual gift, to be sure, and I will be honest and say that it was not very well received. It was really a "hint" gift, from a guy who was raised to think that women are neat and was shocked at the messy condition of my car. We have sort of met in the middle after 30-some years, and he no longer gives me such pointed gifts.

Emily RP said...

Several years ago when our grandsons were small, they decided to make our Christmas gifts. One drew a picture of Snoopy flying an airplane and colored it with crayons. The other, who was younger, drew a picture using plain white paper and regular pencils. He thought out his gift and decided his picture needed a frame. He made it out of plumbing pipe and glued it to the back of the frame. We still have both pictures and they are displayed in our home.

Thank you for the opportunity of the winning one of these lovely books!

Take care.

When we were first married, we talked about what kind of holiday we would like to be able to go on. I said that I would love to have a log cabin by a lake. I knew this was likely never to happen, but the next Christmas my husband gave me a miniature log cabin that he had made himself. It sits on top of an old treadle machine cabinet and every Christmas my husband decorates it with mini lights and a mini Santa and reindeer. We never bought a real log cabin, but I love my mini cabin.

sunny said...

I got a set of snow tires, when I was a young adult. Not exciting but oh so needed and appreciated!

carol jo said...

An unusual Christmas gift huh? My oh my, lets see how difficult we can make it LOL Love the book, it looks like I could do a few projects in it. I guess the only one I can think of is one I bought myself, wrapped up and gave to a friend and told her to give it to me for Christmas. Every single time I wanted to do something in the shop or weld something up I would have to search for the angle grinder. I would search the shop, I would search the machine shed (we ranch), look in the mr.'s truck, look in the garage, look in the mud room. and finally I would give up and ask him where he left it. His response was always the same..."I don't know, look in the shop, look in the machine shed, look in my truck, look in the garage" etc. etc. I would tell him I already looked all those places. I was plum sick and tired of looking for it, so I bought my own angle grinder, wrapped purple duct tape around the handle and the cord and my friend "gave" it to me for Christmas. He still has no clue that I spent perfectly good money on something we already had, but it has saved me countless aggravation because I never have to look for it again. I would love to win that book, and I know my mr. will not take it and leave it somewhere that I can't find it.

Now I didn't find this gift unusual but lots of my friends did. I asked for tires for my car. My sweetie got them for me. My friends found my sweetie unromantic. I thought him to be a Prince.

QuiltMargaret said...

It's not truly unusual, but my grand daughter gave me an early gift of her artwork of a turtle laminated into a bookmark and I will cherish it with each page I read.

Patti said...

Such cute projects. Let's see.... One unusual gift from my mother was a box filled with things she found at rummages throughout the year. Each of my sisters also received a box with items unique to them. While unusual it was also special because our mom really thought about each of us and what we like.

Betsy said...

What a wonderful book! Thanks for sharing Kathleen! My most unusual gift was a toaster oven. I never asked for one, but my husband was so proud of his purchase. He told me he had taken our youngest son, Jordan shopping. Jordan convinced him that I definitely wanted a toaster oven. Jordan sat there grinning because he was the one who wanted the toaster oven to cook his favorite snack...pizza rolls! We still laugh about this every Christmas!

jec said...

well that is a tough one...i guess it is the gift i am still looking forward to receiving :) best holiday wishes to all.

I love Annie's folky style, so this book of projects would be awesome!!! As for unusual gifts... the only one that comes to mind is the year I received a huge walking doll but I was much too old for something like that... my cousin's teased me over that one!!

Stardancer51 said...

Unusual gift? It must be the gift of love from heaven above in the form of a little baby born in Bethlehem that Christmas day. How could that little baby save the world?

Rosemary said...

First: I love the book and her projects. My kind of stuff ...
Second: My girls call me the "Queen of Everything" so a couple of years ago, I received a Tiara and a cape .. It was so unexpected and so funny. They are both Princess' of Quite A Lot .. Two girls and 3 boys .. I'm a very lucky and happy 79 year old Queen!!

Anonymous said...

I can't think of an unusual gift but I think of the way my husband would wrap presents. One year he put a present under the tree that was so heavy I couldn't pick it up. When I opened it there were several bricks along with a sewing book. Thank you for the opportunity.

The ONLY thing I can think of that was unusual (tho it really wasn't considering the circumstances) was a box of fireplace logs. It was a 'chinese' gift exchange amongst bunco friends and it was unusual for me because I had a set of gas logs and wouldn't have been able to use them. The book looks fantastic--thanks for the giveaway!

Rina Mason said...

I've gotten some strange gifts for Christmas but the one I have sitting in front of the tv is a little desktop sign that my brother gave me a few years ago. It says, " I HAVE FLYING MONKEYS and I'm not afraid to use them!". Thanks for the chance at winning such a fun book.

Delinda Blakney said...

It's fun reading all of the unusual gift. I suppose mines not all that unusual, but my sweet husband has put a doll under the tree for me for the past 30 years. He always surprises me and. Never know what he's going to come up with. It's very special. Thank you for a lovely giveaway. Merry Christmas!

Angelia Lanouette said...

I can't think of any unusual Christmas gifts but I do remember the year that I found out the truth about Santa. I had to go downstairs to use the bathroom and caught my parents bring up presents from the basement. I never told them or my older and younger sisters....didn't want to spoil it for them. Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful book!

cindy elliott said...

Such a cute looking book and the projects would be so fun! One of the most unusual Christmas gift I ever received was the exact same album that I owned when I was a young teenage girl. I always thought I had an authentic Beach boys album until one of my older brothers told me it was really just the 'surf siders singing the Beach boys song book'. It was as though they burst my bubble. I frequently told my kids the story. Lo and behold my daughter was able to find that exact album at an estate sale and gave it to me as a gift. While I do not have a phonograph to listen to it anymore I still value her gift very much. One day I will get to listen to it again…

Debra G said...

I love birds. Quite a few years ago my mother gave me a wind up robin. He bobs his head and sings. It was....amusing! And I think it was really intended for my son!
Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this book. Merry Christmas.

The most unusual gift was a mason jar with the rubber ring missing. The size is unusual and so still haven't found a ring to fit. Love the Christmas book.

Marsha said...

Looks like a wonderful book! The strangest gift I received was a chain saw, but it wasn't the one I wanted! We had a lot of bushes in our yard that were a pain to trim. I wanted an electric chain saw so I could trim things. What I got was a gas one that I couldn't even start by myself.

Thanks for a chance to win the book. Merry Christmas!

I can't think of anything unusual I ever got for a gift. I hope this doesn't disqualify me!

When I was in college my parents gave me a dozen cans of different soups and an electric can opener~ wonderful for those late night study sessions! LOL I love to hand embroider and see I would find lots to make from this book. Thanks for the chance! Merry Christmas!

O'faigh said...

Thank you for the chance to win.Suffice to say my lack of humour one Christmas morning when I opened the gifts from my husband.It was a book on how to tie nautical knots, a toaster for the oven on our trailer sailer and last but not least a stuff bag which holds flares and safety gear for our trailer sailor.Obviously my husband bought the gifts for himself grin in the guise of gifts for me

Sylvia Jacobus said...

My oddest Christmas gift I've received was from my husband. He gave me a propane tank cover. For real....I was completely shocked. He was excited. He needed one for our trailer. The next holiday, my birthday, he gave me a log carrier. I didn't like this trend. So on his birthday and the next Christmas, he first received a dress I liked, then, a clay tablet for bread baking. Still have both items. He has managed to control himself ever since. :)

MY MOST UNUSUAL CHRISTMAS GIFT WAS A HOT WATER TANK, MY FATHER-INLAW DID NOT BELIVE IN RENTAL TANKS
SO THE FIRST YEAR WE WERE MARRIED THAT WAS THE GIFT,I PUT A BIG RED BOW ON IT WHEN WE WERE SELLING OUR HOUSE REALLY CONFUSED AGENT AND NEW HOME OWNER WE ALL HAD A GOOD LAUGH OVER IT ON THE CLOSING OF THE HOUSE SALE. MERRY CHRISTMAS. hjrogers@sympatico.ca regards judy

Sally Hurst said...

The only unusual present that I recall was a handmade TV stand that a boyfriend gave me many years ago, along with a poem about it that he wrote. He actually made the TV stand himself, too! Very sweet that he knew I needed one! Would love to win this book--I am always looking for hand embroidery projects. Thanks for the give-away.

Ada Kopitopoulou said...

The most unusual Christmas gift I ever got was a cotton bathmat. A friend gave it to me. She really liked the pattern and thought the colours would do great in my bathroom!
I would love the win the book. I could make a Christmas bathmat with the patterns in it!

Catskill Quilter said...

When I was a little girl, I attended a private elementary school because my mother was the school nurse. Not surprisingly, many of my classmates were quite well-to-do, and some went to a special shop every Friday with their maids to buy the latest doll clothes. That Christmas I heard my mother's sewing machine until late every night, and she would not tell me what she was working on. On Christmas morning, I opened a huge hatbox filled with the most beautiful doll clothes -- for the tiny 8 inch doll that we all had at the time - with a little pleated plaid skirt and a matching jacket, among other things. Wonderful!

NancyRose said...

Waow. I love all of them....

Hi, one wonderful but unusual Christmasgift I got by my friend. She used leftover scraps (and we are talking small scraps - nothing bigger than 2 x 2" !) to stuff the package she send by post to me. Of course this wasn't her real gift to me, but I completely forgot was that was. She knows that I'm crazy after These small scraps and I sew them together for rather big Crazy-Quilts. I find this ery Relaxing but it really is crazy.
As I'm from Berlin, Germany, I don't expect you to send the book for free to me should I win.
Merry Christmas to you!

A long, long time ago I spent 2 years in the US as a foreign exchange student. On Christmas morning I found a note under the Christmas tree that said I could make a long distance call to my parents in the Neatherlands. Those daysiIt was rather difficult and very expensive to call,there was no internet and no mobile phones existed. It was so precious that I could wish my parents Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. It was the most wonderful Chrismas present I ever recieved!

Granny's Button Box said...

Hi, what a great book. I love making presents for Xmas, it started when I didn't have much cash for presents so made them, now I can afford presents I still make them but with better fabrics. My old boss once gave me a wheelbarrow, I was thrilled but looked a bit odd wheeling down the high street in heels and smart suit!
Hope you have a great Xmas. Sharon x

quiltgrannie said...

A gift that comes to mind that I think about every Christmas time isn't that it was unusual but that I hadn't appreciated it at the time. When I was a teen my mother had knitted me a sweater for Christmas. When I opened it I was so disappointed and hated that sweater, I never told my mom that. I don't know what happened to it but I sure do wish I had that sweater now.
Thanks for the chance to win such a fun book, I would have to incorporate some wool into those projects, though.....

Jocelyn said...

Probably the most unusual was when my hubby gave me 5 envelopes for Christmas one year. The first one was a membership to American Quilters Society. The second one was a hotel reservation for Paducah KY. The third envelope was a reservation for a rental car. Fourth was an airline ticket and the fifth was registration for the Quilt show! He knew I wanted to attend the quilt show for a long time. So when he was traveling, he stayed at a hotel in Paducah and made the arrangements for me to stay. My girlfriend met me there and we had the best time.
Love the book. Thanks for the giveaway.

Candee said...

One Christmas my father-in-law drew my name in the family gift exchange. He gave me lingerie from Victoria Secret! Ew.
Thank you for the chance to win Kathy!

Nancy said...

Wow! What a great book of projects! My unusual Christmas gift was a Poop Moose. My husband, knowing I collect moose in all shapes and sizes, found this moose that has a hollowed out body that you fill with M & M-type candy. When you lift his antlers, the candy falls out of his butt! Great for a laugh and looks cute too! It's all hand carved out of teakwood.

Thanks for a chance to win.

Oh, I just love this book. The most unusual gift that I ever got was a sweater. The body was brown and one sleeve was gold and the other was purple!?

Jill said...

Looks like another great book! I guess an unusual or at least unexpected Christmas gift would be a garage door opener, several years ago from my husband.

Candee said...

Hi Kathy! I just excitedly realized I won Gail's book. So please don't include me in this draw. Thank you sooooo much!!!

Nc judy said...

I was the lucky recipient of an indoor/outdoor shop vacuum for Christmas from my husband. All my friends had wild guesses as to what was in the big box under the tree. It wasn't long on Christmas morning that the phone calls started coming from them to see if their guess had been right. Needless to say, no one, including me guessed it! Memorable, yep, that is to put it mildly.

Karen said...

I am glad I follow you. I get to see books that I would not learn about otherwise. I like the bag made with scraps and appliqued. And the ornaments! Thank you for the give away!

Sheri in Iowa said...

The only thing that comes to mind was a gift I gave my hubby last year. I bought him a cannon.....not life size, but it is about 2 feet long and cast iron.....like from the civil war. It was a fun gift and he loved it!

Sandy Lowery said...

Looks like a wonderful book. I don't remember receiving any unusual gifts for Christmas so guess I don't have an answer.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I don't think I've ever received anything that would be considered unusual, but my friend got a stuffed (as in taxidermy) chicken one year from a family member. Now every year the chicken gets a new ensemble before being gifted to another family member--the gift that keeps on giving--lol!

Ann in PA said...

One gift that brings smiles (laughter!!!) is one that was given as a serious gift. It's a black "Kit Cat Clock" with sequins and a velvet tail...the eyes move and the tail wags!!!! LOL I love Anni Downs designs...thank you for another wonderful giveaway.

Carol Henderson said...

Great giveaway. One year my Grandfather and Granny gave me a cuckoo clock for Christmas. I had always liked their clock. Carol

Susan said...

When I was ten years old my German grandparents sent me a necklace made from coral reef pieces.....unusual for someone that young I think!
I have been on the hunt for a Christmas applique quilt.....I like this one very much.
Fingers crossed!!!! Thank you and Happy Holidays......

A Darth Vader ornament ..when you push a button his light saber lights up and he speaks those famous words! This is my most treasured ornament, picked out as "their gift for mum" by two little Star Wars fans about 20 years ago. I admit, I was momentarily taken aback when I opened it until two very excited little boys jumped in to show mum how it worked and wasn't it just perfect for the tree....most unusual but best gift ever!

regan said...

Hubby and I don't exchange gifts anymore....we have everything we want. But anything we buy near the holidays we consider as 'gifts', and sometimes we'll stick a bow on it for under the tree....just to have something under there. Last year....it was a spin mop & bucket....I love that thing! HA! Thanks for the chance at this sweet book! And Merry Christmas to ya!

My most unusual Christmas gift was a gag gift called "No More Stinky Feet!"

What a great book with cute projects to do!

A secretary and antique china doll. Love the book. Thank you for this giveaway.

Joanne said...

It has been fun reading everyones unusual gifts! Nothing so exciting for me - my Mother in Law used to give me socks and underwear when I was first married - all fine except she bought them the same size as her 4 daughters, they are all barely 5' tall and tiny. I am average sized and like a giant next to them, especially with my size 10 feet. Needless to say nothing fit. Thanks! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Mary said...

The most unusual gift I ever received has to be a gas tank I got from my son. My husband was restoring a '66 mustang for me and he assured my son that a gas tank for it was just what I wanted! It was, of course, a huge package and (well, I suppose it's hard to wrap a gas tank) a bit bulky. I couldn't imagine what it was, either before or after I opened it!

Robin McGuire said...

I was having trouble thinking of an unusual Christmas gift, until I substituted unique for unusual. Both of my now-adult children have always shared my love of crafts and handmade gifts. Both went through lots of mediums before settling on their favorites. My son made me a series of hand-tooled leather ornaments and my daughter a series of hand-beaded ornaments. I receive so much pleasure each year when I decorate my small tree with their handmade treasures. Happy holidays!

What cute projects in the book, would be a treat to be the winner. Thank you for another give away. My most unusual gift was the year my husband and our boys gave me a mini dachshund puppy! Mousse came to live with us very late in the day, as the young couple who was supposed to bring her over didn't arrive as early as my hubby had planned. Nothing for me was under the tree from them, and there was no bowl, food or treats for her when she did arrive.

Mary A said...

One memorable Christmas, my mother gave me her Shirley Temple doll. She had four daughters but gave the doll to me, her oldest (my sisters still hold that against me). Our first Christmas together, my husband gave me a cast iron skillet! Ever the practical one!

Yvonne said...

What a lovely book!
The first time my friend from the US send me a package with Christmas I was so surprised! We are not used to give eachother present at Christmas in the Netherlands. Of course now every year a package goes her way too! But I still remember the surprise and warmth of receiving that first package, very special!

GranChris said...

The most unusual was an empty box. My sister forgot to put the present in the box and mailed it anyway. I was having trouble thanking her and finally just told her the box was pretty but empty.

krisgray said...

Unusual gifts seem to arrive at birthday time for me. However, one year hubby gave me a battery charger for my car! It wasn't my only gift, thank goodness! đŸ™‚

Debbie Huber said...

Unusual gift: gift certificate to spa. For me, not really something I enjoy. I know it sounds weird. I never used it.

But I love the pattern. Just saw something finish it onling.

Rori Jensen said...

Anni Downs has such cute and whimsical designs which always delight the creative eye! The most unusual gift was from my father-in-law, who knows I like quilting and used items. He once gave me a couple of quilting/patchwork books which he picked up from a consignment shop. I truly did not mind at all!

A pair of second hand binoculars from an Army Surplus Store given to me by my daughter who thought it would be great for me to look through my living room at things passing by!

One of the most unusual gifts I can think of is getting some toe socks when I was a teenager. They were warm, but I could never get used to that feeling of stuff between my toes!

Anonymous said...

One of my favorite Christmas gifts some would consider unusual. Mamah always gave all the cousins firecrackers and sparklers for Christmas and we would all go in the back 40 on the farm and pop them off. I loved it! I'm not sure cousins still get together like that, but we remember our history together every time we're all at a family funeral or wedding. Now that Mamah is gone and most of our parents, that's when we usually see each other now.
