 I always thought this tote would work great for a small knitting projects, stitchery  or Lunch even! I'm sure a couple of other items will find their way into the bag for a  surprise. Love surprises!

and Shepherd's Abiding by Jan Karon
Choosing a favorite children's book is almost impossible. The Night Before Christmas in all it's versions definitely is in the top 10 :) 


Happy Birthday, Quilter's Blog!!!!  Have a fun blog hop!

What a sweet giveaway..love that bag! My favorite Christmas book is a child's book called Morris' Disappearing Bag by Rosemary Wells. Thanks for the chance :o)

Lovely bag! At my local library there is a book which is an anthology of short Christmas stories. I take it out to read every year, but I couldn't tell you what it's called.... I'll go to the library on Tuesday and check the title and let you know.

Kate said...

I really like A Wish for Wings that Work or Santa Mouse!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

Cute bag! My favorite Christmas book is "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

SIMPLESEW said...

The Night Before Christmas since I have 5 new grandkids were going to make this a tradition

Heather said...

My favorite Christmas book is the traditional Twas the Night Before Christmas. I still have it memorized from third grade extra credit!

Stephanie said...

You stole mine! I just took the Pilcher one out of the library to read. :)

Sew Simple Life said...

What a cute bag. I think Frosty the snowman and rudolph are my favorites to read to the kids. I dont think I have ever read an adult christmas novel

EngrSandi said...

The pop-up version of The Night Before Christmas has long been a favorite.

Lesley said...

What a lovely tote! My favorite Christmas book is called The House of Wooden Santas, written by Newfoundland author Kevin Major and illustrated with a variety of carved Santas made by Imelda George who lives about an hour from me. I have two of her Santa carvings and consider myself pretty lucky to have them since she is no longer carving them. Thanks for the chance!

barb said...

Thank you for such a great giveaway!! I would love to read sheperds abiding. Love the bag babscorbitt@gmail.com

Paula said...

Love the bag. Thanks for the giveaway. I don't have a book that I read over and over but if I did I would do The Night Before Christmas.
Good Luck to all.

Barb said...

This may sound silly, but I read this book to my kids SO many times as they were growing up, that it's still my favorite. It's The Berenstain Bears Christmas! I would tuck it away and we'd bring it out with the Christmas decorations each year. I still have it!
Your bag is awfully cute - great work! Have a Merry Christmas yourself.

Needled Mom said...

It is tough to choose Christmas books for children. Ours enjoy the Polar Express.

Justina A said...

Quilts and Books! It doesn't get better than that! My favorite is How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Lyn said...

Thanks for being part of the hop! The bag and books are great. Thanks again

MissEnota Minnesota said...

Hello from Minnesota! My favorite Christmas books are actually the Laura Ingalls Wilder books...they have great descriptions of the food, homemade gifts, budgeting, parties and even an early Christmas tree. When I was little, we often got oranges (or fancier tropical fruit) in our stockings and so did little Laura - I always thought that was neat.)

Prairie Stitcher said...

Lovely little purse. Oh, how I love books, too. I just got a wonderful book, vintage...The Fireside Book of Christmas Stories edited by Wagenecht (sp?) It has stories by Dickens, Mrs. Gaskell, Walter De La Mare, etc. We've been reading from it, along with the Scriptures. You and I must talk, Becky. I'm a retired genealogist with French Canadian and Indian background....no Acadians that I know of yet....please stop by when you have a minute. http://www.prairiecottagecorner.blogspot.com

Vicki H said...

Love the tote, you did a great job. I don't have a favorite Christmas book, I usually don't have time to read this time of year. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kathy H said...

The Shepherd, the angel and walter the christmas miracle dog by dave barry is my favorite. That reminds me that i need to get it out to read again. I laugh out loud every time.

Really cute bag! I actually don't have a favorite Christmas novel. I haven't read many. The last one I read and enjoyed was A Christmas with Anne, a compilation of Christmas stories about Anne (Anne of Green Gables fame). That was a really sweet book. Merry Christmas!

Sandra said...

I really like your giveaway. A colorful fat quarter tote would sure come in handy. I could run away and take some books with me - We both love Winter Soltice. Maybe a mug rug along with a thermos of hot chocolate and that book. The endless possibilities. Thank you for the chance to win and making this Party fun. Happy Holidays.

Your bag is very cute. I love a kids book we have about a mouse family that wants a visit from Santa, so they decorate their tree home with the other residents so they have the biggest, most beautiful Christmas tree. :)

HuckleberryKim said...

I love the fabric choice for your tote bag.
My favorite Christmas story is Scrooge. I think there is a lesson for everyone in it. Definately, 'Twas the Night before Christmas is my childrens' book choice.
