It´s so hard to choose just one favorite color (as well as just one favorite Sublime pattern...), but I´ll try, for the sake of this awesome PRIZE!!! rsrsrrs
- color: 518 - I love blue!
- pattern: Black Apple
- Christmas Carol: I don´t no any title to tell (I know some songs, of course, but not the names...) as here in Brazil it´s not so usual as in the USA.

Oooh - great giveaway!
Favorite color - I want to say all of them, but I always seem to be out of 321.
Favorite pattern - I'm really excited about the Tara McPherson - we have a couple of posters of hers hanging up in our house. I like the Day of the Dead themed patterns a lot (I'm from the Southwest), and the body parts.
Favorite Christmas Carol - "Little Drummer Boy" as sung by Bing Crosby and David Bowie.

My favorite pattern has got to be- Roaring Twenties or Zombies and Monsters.
Fav X-mas song- I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

ACK!! Bookmarking that colourlist RIGHT NOW.

1) I've just stitched something in 3848 - I'm pretty predictable about loving those bluey greens and greeny blues.
2) I've been eyeing off the roaring twenteis for some time now. Haven't bought it yet, but I think it will be mine soon... oh, yes... soon.
3) What about Santa Baby by Marilyn? Otherwise I love all the old old ones, especially sung in harmonies - I've got the Blind Boys of Alabama CD and was cranking 'Joy to the World' the other day. So beautiful.

I'm internationl, btw!

Ooh, I love Sublime Stitching!
I'm a green kind of girl, so that lovely tree-ish no 699 is right up my alley.
I always wanted to be a Sexy Librarian - that's definitely my fave pattern!
Whenever I hear "God rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", I can't help but hear my little brother's 5 year old voice struggling to reach the high notes. Means it must be Christmas :)

Conas atá tú?
Greetings from the Emerald Isle :)
I love 125- I try to use it to stitch the reciprients name on the back of all sorts of various presents!
I'm feeling the Dutch-Russian patterns.
And Silent Night is just so beautiful.
[White Christmas always gets me in a 'sewing-for-christmas' mood though!]
I love your blog by the way-have been following it since I started stitching as a serious past time =]
thank you for inspiration (and recognition of the many fine stitchers out there).
Wishing everyone a safe and happy Christmas, and the health to enjoy it with people they love.

All colours in yellow, orange and red, my pick is 971, a kind of orange. My favorite stitching pattern is Black Apple and Camp out. And my favorite Christmas song is either In the bleak mid winter or Chris Rea singing Driving home for Christmas. Around Christmas time you can hear me singing all day long! One loved Christmas carol after the other. Greetings from Germany - thanks for shipping internationally - my chance!
