Blog Giveaway!


I'm not actually giving away MY personal copy of Quilter's Connection.  No, no, no.  If you are chosen, you'll get your own.  : )  The other projects in the book include awesome applique, and redwork too!  They are all holiday themed, so I want to mail this out ASAP.  


Here's what you need to do.  Leave a comment telling me one quirky fact about Canadians.  It can be real or imagined (hahaha).  The winner will be chosen by my random number generator.  Contest closes Wednesday midnight.  I'll announce the recipient on Thursday morning!

Good luck!
Monika

Canadians are WAY too polite!

Nancy said...

I have never met a Canadian...so they must be invisible...right?

A.J. Dub. said...

They say "eh"(ay?)at the end of every sentence. :)

Tiffany said...

They love cold weather - since winter is super cold and super long there. Right??

Flo said...

We have a drawer full of "Canadian Tire Money"...eh??

Becky said...

Darn, someone took my "eh" quirk. Having lived just a few hours south of the Canadian border for a few years, I know they all love their hockey!

Tara said...

While in the States, someone identified me as Canadian within 5 minutes of starting the conversation. Apparently it really was my pronounciation of "about" that gave me away.

I knew a Canadian guy who was married to a french woman...does that count?? Congrats on getting published, that's amazing and thanks for the lovely comment...

If you wear sorels with your evening gown, you could be a Canadian. JoAnne from MLQ

How about this one... "5% of Canadians don't know the first 7 words of the Canadian anthem"

Gailanne said...

I know I've already won something from you Monika, but I wanted to add this...every Canandian I know (three of you), has been SO very friendly! Is that a Canadian trait, or did I just get lucky?

You guys can legally drink when you're 19 years old. When I was a college student in Michigan, we took many road trips to Windsor, Ontario, for this very reason. : )

Wendy said...

A favorite pass time for Canadians is talking about the weather. I'm not sure if it is because it changes so much and so fast that you are always assured of something new to add to a conversation or it's because we are just genetically wired that way, but sit back and take notice how many Canucks talk weather in the run of a day. p.s great give away...hope I win!

apparently we all live in igloos! and we never have summer because apparently it's always cold here all year long!

I watch a lot of cooking shows, and most are American................in the last week I've heard at least 4 comments made to the above statements!

and the fact that we all must love winter..........I have to be honest, I HATE winter! lol

Linda said...

Canadians talk almost normally, eh?

robin said...

Canadians aren't very patriotic. I'm a transplanted American living in Canada. Eh. Nobody here sings along to the national anthem. Or maybe I'm just getting old and no ones does that anywhere anymore??? LOL

I think most Canadians need to do more travelling in their own country! I know too many people in BC who have never been east, just south ... I'm sure the same is true of those back east ... Thank you for the giveaway! My subscription to Quilter's Connection has just run out, and I hear there is an article about the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild, of which I am a member ...

Brenda Sutherland said...

You always hear Canadians are so polite. (which we are). Do you think it could be because we are all snuggled up in our igloos? EH!

MoeWest said...

Canadians spell some words the British way, like favourite and colour.

Hilachas said...

The strangest thing I can think of is that even though Canada is so close to the United States, I've only met one Canadian and met him while in Holland.

I live in PEI, moved here in 1999. The first thing Islanders do when they meet for the first time is start asking each other their maiden name, parents name, cousins names, in-laws name, etc to see if they are related in any way. This can go on for a significant length of time! I hate to say it, but in most cases, they are related in some way. (their sisters husbands aunt Matilda is the niece of the other persons cousin's uncle, twice removed, by marriage) And that is the truth!
