Jelly Beans and Jelly Rolls




I have never liked jelly beans. I still don't, well not the traditional kinds anyway. I like Jelly Belly's, especially the ice cream flavors and I like Starburst jelly beans too. You know what I like a lot more though? Jelly Rolls. Both the food and the fabric.


Anyway, I missed this holiday with everything that has been going on in my life. We did a little egg hunt with my guys but that was about it. But the next two holidays (not counting mother's and father's days) coming up are Great holidays too! I love holidays! What other days include excess food, fun and friends that happen every year?


We have Memorial day and the 4th of July coming up! Two red, white, and blue holidays. Plus, these holidays have my favorite foods! Fruit salads, roasted hot dogs, smores, taco-dips, and eh, who am I kidding, just about every food is my favorite.


So to celebrate the holidays coming up, I'm giving away two prizes, one jelly roll and one honey bun from this BEAUTIFUL Moda collection, Civil War Homefront by Barbara Brackman. This collection is so rich and vivid. It will make a beautiful rustic red white and blue look to anything you make with it! Perhaps some 4th of July table runners? ;)


Just leave a comment with your favorite part of the holidays to enter! Winner will be announced on April 20th!


I'll put your name in twice if you blog about this giveaway and post me a link back to it in the comments! :)

I love holidays because thats an unspoken time when everyone puts life to the sidelines and family and friends try their darnest to get together...when I think of big holidays I think of family which gets me all gooey and gooshie inside...

That is such a wonderful fabric line! I enjoy baking for the holidays. Pretty much any holiday. I'm not a big jelly bean fan, but, like you, I am a big jelly roll fan!!

My favorite part about holidays is the break from the every-day routine. Sometimes it's more work, but it's different!

I love the holidays. I love having the opportunity to teach my children about where weve come from and how these traditions started and what they represent for our great country.

The next two holidays are very important in my family as we all see it as a way to remember those how have served and those in the family are still serving in the armed forces. But my all time favorite part of the holidays is going out in the boat and watching the 4th of July fireworks between a local town and the Paris Island Marines!

I enjoy the holidays because it's time of family, friends, food, and fellowship! What could be better??? well...hhmm.... maybe, throw in some fabric?????LOL!

I have to agree...food is a big part of the holidays. We've always had a lot of red, white and blue around here - my mom's birthday is on Flag Day. When I was little, I thought the flags were out for her birthday - lol! This year we'll celebrate her 88th birthday, with all the flags flying :)

My favorite part of the holidays is the preparation. I love to entertain. Decorating, planning, cooking, hosting, I love it all.

Carol said...

I love just having the family around--eating and talking!

LOVE fabric and all it entails! :) LOL While I don't do the traditional holidays many of you do, the Spring is a time for my Spring Holy days and it is a very somber but special time for us to honor what Christ sacrificed for us and our committment to being in the faith. I also love the spring for its new colors, new growth and a new chance to start fresh! :)

As a Vet. of the Air Force myself (my father and Uncle have also served) any holiday that honors our Military or our freedom (what's left anyway) is very important to me.
My favorite thing about this time of year is picnics and watermelon especially a 4th of July picnic with watermelon. LOVE me some watermelon!
