Candace. What is this all about? I've never heard of it but then I'm a new blogger, so I'm not surprised.

Coming from So. Calif. where it is never really winter, I would have to say I could be anywhere in winter as long as it was snowing and I could sit in front of a warm fire, sipping on a cup of hot chocolate, and watching the snow fall. Please enter me in the giveaway, and Happy New Year!

Happy Quilty 2009! If I could be anywhere in winter other than home, I would probably go somewhere where there is snow, but not too much of it to be a bother. I live in Perth Western Australia and it doesn't even get to freezing here in winter (occasional light frost in the hills only). So how about New Hampshire, there's a great quilt shop there that I visit online...

lani said...

Anywhere hummmmm right here leaving a comment for you...hapi nu year

Lissa Jane said...

Hey Candice, Happy New Year to you!

My favorite place to be in winter would be a nice log cabin up in the mountains with my family, hot chocolate, some boooks and my sewing machine!

But since I don't have a log cabin, my favorite place is snuggling on our couch while I sew and my hubby and son read books aloud!

Barb said...

Since I live in American Samoa, anywhere where it is cool and since I am here, I would love to be in Texas where two of my sons are...(I know that is not very wintery).

Happy New Year!
If I could be anywhere in winter, I'd be in New York City. I love walking in Manhattan and looking at all the store windows dressed up for the holidays. The giant Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center and watching the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve.

Aloha! I would love to be in a cold place where there's lots of snow! Maybe the Pacific Northwest! I've lived here in Hawaii ALL my life & the only snow I ever see is atop Mauna Kea!! I had the opportunity to be in Oregon in Dec. 2007-Jan 2008 & was so BLESSED to experience being somewhere it was snowing for days! Loved it!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Gene Black said...

My favorite place to be in winter is somewhere warm. My poor old bones don't love the cold. I like a beach, even if it isn't warm enough to lay in the sun.
OR I like to be in Merida Mexico which is in the Yucatan. I beleive it is in the 80s there today.

Tsoniki Crazy Bull said...

I would like to be with my family! Growing up in South Dakota we also had real winters, not snow for two days like other states, or no snow at all like the south (where we are now!). A real winter so we could make snowmen and have snowball fights would be awesome. Which we did last year and it was a lot of fun!

Happy New Year!

Pat said...

I would want to be on a warm beach....but first I'd have to hope I could get to an airport that wasn't having flight delays because of bad weather! So...I guess I'll be content to stay with a quilt by the fireplace. NICE prize package and I'd love to win it. I hope you visited my blog to enter my giveaway, too.

I can't decide between two options: I'd be curled up on the couch at home with a warm blanket, a cup of tea, and my latest knitting project, or I'd be out in the snow on a cross-country ski trail.

I would choose to be in Arizona where it is warm and sunny and my granddaughter lives there.

Karen said...

I'd like to be with my family, and that happens to be in Colorado. The snow is nice when it's falling and fresh, and I can stay inside and sew or read, with a big quilt on my lap. But I wouldn't mind a weekly Monday sunny beach excursion!
PS I am making goals, not resolutions, myself!

Nancy said...

I'd be on a beach in the Caribbean!

Sandy F said...

What fun! I would be in Montana, lots of snow, a blazing fire, nice cozy drink and all of the quilitng projects I could think of. Oh, yeah, I better bring the family! LOL

Linda said...

Living in PA in the winter, other than being in my house next to a roaring fire, I guess that I would like to be on a beautiful tropical island. Instead of feeling the bone chilling wind I would be enjoying the warm tropical breezes. Thank you for entering me in your very generous giveaway.

Well, we get a lot of snow here so I would pick some where warm! What a nice giveaway.

Rachel said...

If I could be anywhere in winter, I'd pick the south of France...as long as I could take my sewing machine with me!

Happy New Year!

Candace, what a lovely giveaway!

I would like to be in the Caribbean during the winter... I'm much happier in the sun than in the snow. :)

shauna said...

In the winter the best place to be is inside with a quilt on your lap and a good book. It doesn't get much better than that!! Happy New Year. shaunsnews@hotmail.com

Amy said...

I'm from Texas and we don't get much snow. So, just for one Winter, I'd like to live somewhere where there is lots of snow...maybe Ohio...I like Ohio! :) But after that, it would be back to Texas for me...until summer, and then maybe I'll go back to OHIO! LOL ~ Amy

Love your give-a-way. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Happy New Year.

My favourite place in winter, under a cozy quilt sipping hot chocolate.
Thanks for the great giveaway,
cheers Julz

Sandi said...

If I were wishing on a winter star, I would want to spend the winter in San Diego where the climate is so much more pleasant than here in MN. But I actually like snow as long as I can spend my time in my sewing room and don't have to shovel too much. My grandson likes to visit and calls my sewing room "cozy". :-) Would love to be entered in the drawing for your great giveaway!!

Corinna said...

I think it would be fun to be in....well....any place warmer than here really! Canada's pretty cold for a lot of months! lol I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here for Christmas though. :o)

Q said...

My favorite place to be in the winter is looking out at the snow covered landscape from a picture window as I quilt.

Michelle said...

Great giveaway prize! If I could be anywhere in the winter, I'd love to be in a mountain cabin somewhere with my family...fire in the fireplace, lots of snow outside and lots of quilts to snuggle under. :)

Baba said...

I would be somewhere warm and dragging my family with me of course. As long as I am with my family I am happy though. Thanks for the chance!

Oh I wouldn't be anywhere other than my own hearth. It's my favorite place on earth!

Thanks for hosting such a lovely giveaway.

Wishing you joy in the coming year,

doni said...

Hmmm, my DH would say 'Palm Desert'!! But I would have to say at a condo in the mountains - must have fireplace and large windows looking out on the slopes!

Warm winter wishes!

Agneta quilts said...

Where? Of course in my sewing room creating warm quilts!

Caron said...

I'm happy in the winter as long as I'm inside with the fireplace on, sitting in my leather chair hand quilting with my cat covering my legs. Nothing better! Please add me to your list.

Team Chicka said...

1st, what a generous giveaway! 2nd, my favorite place in the wintertime is snuggled up with my hubbie, my son (16mos) and my two doggies on the couch, drinking hot cocoa. Barring that, I would take Las Vegas!

Quilting Mai said...

Happy new year. My favorite place in the winter is sitting on my sofa with a quilt on my lap and making another quilt. And it's snowing outside

BitnByAQuiltingBug said...

My favorite place to be in winter is at my cabin in northern Michigan. It's the only place I enjoy all the snow. Thanks for including me in your drawing.

Joyce said...

Great giveaway. I think my favorite place to be is in my sewing room. Enjoying the peace and quiet.

tiff said...

i have always wanted to experience winter in England, so that's where I'd like to be!

I love being right where I am now, in Montana. We had the most perfect white Christmas this year. Eight inches of beautiful, fat, soft snowflakes. It was picture postcard perfect. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else...

Julia said...

Like so may others here, my preference is to be at home in the warm sewing - add to that, whilst watching a favourite old film on TV. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway.

Regards Julia :0)

julia said...

Hi Candace,
I just found your blog through the WIW-website and I'm glad I did! Your blog is now on my rss feed list - I love the work you show and I'm already looking forward to reading more of you ;o).
My favourite place to be in winter would be in a lonly, warm cabin with a fireplace, my sewing machine, a cozy armchair & tons of chocolate in all its forms to enjoy stitching while looking the snowflakes fall...well, I've never been to that place but this is my romantic dream of winter ;o)
Happy new year,
Julia

Lisa said...

If I could be anywhere for Winter, I would be here at home with my family and friends...

Melinda said...

I would be in San Francisco with my daughter and grandson if I could be anywhere.

ytsmom said...

Well, my husband thinks he needs to be in Arizona playing golf. In all reality, I would probably pick home with my cats and sewing. I am a terible home-body.

Sequana said...

Anywhere? I'd like to be in a cabin in the mountains and not have to go out for anything. I'd just watch winter happen all around me.

Happy 2009!

Ethel said...

Someplace where the wind chill is considerably less than -27. Would want DH and my sewing machine, not necessarily in that order. But OK, he's a keeper. He washes dishes.

Granny said...

I would be in Washington visiting my daughter.

Thanks for entering me.

5acre Designs said...

If I could choose anywhere in the world to be in winter, it would be right here in Kansas on my 5 acres, stitching away and enjoying the snow. A very Blessed and Happy New Year to you!

Kim D. said...

Candace, Thanks for the opportunity to win your awesome prizes. If I could be anywhere I'd be right here at home in Arizona. It's a little warmer here than in most parts of the US. I sure hope I win this one. :)

SandyQuilts said...

"If you could be anywhere in winter, where would you be?"
I'd love to be anywhere that's HOT ... like the equator. I'm so cold with all this winter. thanks.

barefootT said...

I would be in a log cabin, in Maine, with a roaring fire in the woodstove, family all around the house. Of course I'd be stitchin on a quilt. warmheartthunder@yahoo.com

Judy said...

What a great give away!! Where would I rather be? Maybe Hong Kong? Thanks for doing this!!

SRK Quilts said...

My favorite place to be in the winter is snuggled up under a quilt in front of a nice warm fire.

Briarose said...

Anywhere is winter? In front of a blazing fire wrapped in a quilt with my dog beside me. In a cabin in the woods! claire mckiernan@rogers.com
