Fall into Fall Giveaway!

Today is October 1st. and the first day to enter my Fall into Fall giveaway! Yesterday I teased you with a photo of wheat as a hint of what you might win. Today I'm revealing the prize - Five fat quarters from Kathy Hall's latest group from Andover Fabrics, a package of John James Big Eye Quilting Needles and a stork scissors! I'm afraid the picture doesn't do justice to the beautiful colors in the fabric but trust me, they are beautiful. Yes, that's wheat on the lower right fat quarter!

Here's how to enter: Leave a comment on this blog post (and only this post) about what your favorite or least favorite cleaning chore is and why. You must include this in your comment to enter my giveaway. There must also be a link back to your blog or be sure to include your e-mail address. If you'd like to become a follower, that would be great but its not a requirement. I will ship international.

I shared with you yesterday that I don't like to clean wood blinds. The reason is that you have to wipe each slat down separately and I never feel I get all the dust and cat fur wiped off of them.

How about you, what's your favorite or least favorite cleaning chore?
P.S. - The drawing will be October 15, 9 AM CST.

Winner Update - The winner is Canadian Kristin who has been notified! Thanks everyone for entering my giveaway, Mayleen

  4. HA! The shorter list would be which cleaning chore I like. I am lucky that I do not do a lot of cleaning because I am allergic to the cleaners. But I do seem to have a real aversion to emptying the dishwasher. I don't mind loading it but I can leave it for days full of clean dishes!

  15. Great giveaway! I think everyone has hit the least favorites of mine, so I will say that my favorite would be vacuuming.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really do not mind cleaning since I really like a clean house, but my least favorite chore is cleaning the kitchen sofit area. I have tons of display items up there and you know what kitchen grease can do.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My least favorite is laundry. It never ends! You separate, you wash, you dry, you iron, you fold, you match, you put in drawers, you hang up! Seriously, could there be another step!

    Great giveaway, btw. :)

  20. Great giveaway! My favorite chore is folding laundry, because I can sit down and do it while I watch TV. Now putting them all away is another matter...

    ReplyDelete
  21. My worst chore is laundry! UGH!!! No matter how hard I work to get it done it is never done!!! The clothes we have on are even dirty!!! Love the fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Since cleaning had to be taken care of before blog hopping, this is easy for me...LOL

    My favorite part about cleaning is doing bathrooms. Yes, I'm a bit strange but it's true..

    My LEAST favorite is washing windows. Oh, I detest having to go outside to do them...yuck.

    What a wonderful set of FQs with other goodies.

    Happy Fall....and Happy cleaning!!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great giveaway! Please count me in! I hate to clean the kitchen. I am a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't really hate cleaning anything but I suppose the toilet is not all that fun. It's just the idea of what I'm actually cleaning that is gross.
    Love, love, love these fabrics! Thanks for hosting a giveaway. I don't have a blog. scarterenter(at)gmail(dot)com.

  26. those fabrics are great and I love John James needles...it seems like the giveaway is meant for me!
    My least favorite cleaning chore...cleaning the bathroom...had a houseful of guys and little ole me when my sons were around...still hate doing that chore

    ReplyDelete
  27. I HATE dusting blinds - for the same reason as you! But I LOVE dusting just about everything else, mostly because of the smell of lemon-scented spray and the sense of accomplishment. (I actually just dusted my ceiling fans today - wow!)

  28. I don't like the "deep clean" of vacuuming in, under, around things, having to move things to get into the "out of the way" places, bbuuuuttt when it's done, I'm very thankful and satisfied!!

    I like the "Daily Blessing" for Oct 1st - "He that win's souls is wise."

  31. Thank you for the chance to win. . When you get a chance check out my giveaway. I hate loading and unloading the dishwasher.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well, the list of my least favorite cleaning jobs gets longer as I get older. Blinds have to be number one on the list-and they never look good even when I've finished the job. My favorite job is anything to do with organizing, especially organizing my sewing room!
    BTW, I sew with selvages too, tho have only made some small things (pincushions, potholders) and a small quilt for my sewing room wall. Thanks very much. villagequilterATgmailDOTcom

  33. My favorite is to polish the wood furniture...looks so nice to see it shine. Least favorite is of course the bathroom.

  35. I hate cleaning bath tubs. Makes me wonder if water was in there, how they got so dirty. windows are fun to clean, I love to see them spark. Awesome giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh I am following now, so stop over at my place for a visit.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just hate cleaning the ceiling fans and the top cabinets and top of fridge,hate that greasy yucky dirt...... thanks for hosting a blog, love the prize... visit my fall site at nanbon44.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my! Where to begin?! I guess my LEAST favorite task is cleaning the tub and shower. It's so difficult to remove water spots from glass doors, and the film on the fiberglass. Though I have to say that the best cleaning solution is homemade: white vinegar and water sprayed on and allowed to soak, followed by a baking soda scrub. Still a yuk job though.

    I'm already a follower of your blog, and also get your posts in my email box through an RSS feed. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ewwww, I don't like any of it--that's why I pay someone else to do it! HA But my least fav would be the bathroom..I have a potty-phobia where cleaning goes. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Those fabrics are gorgeous! Like others above, I dispise doing windows. I never seem to hit all the spots - ever. Plus there are two little dogs that seem to follow me around and leave nose prints as quickly as the windows and (full length) glass doors are cleaned.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Bathrooms and I have four. Is that ridiculous or what! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I really don't mind washing clothes...but I seem to never be motivated to fold and put them away. I'm worse than a teen-ager...my pile of clean clothes is twice as big as the dirty pile (and for the record they are separate and distinct piles).

    ReplyDelete
  43. Does ironing count as a cleaning chore?? Cause I really hate it. If not it is that area behind the toilet that you can't really see and probably don't really want to. I love your giveaway--thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I hate/love to clean the bathroom - hate it when I have to do it but I love the result + cleaner's fresh smell!
    thanks for the chance!

  45. My least favorite job is cleaning the shower/bathtub. There is just so much space to cover and you have to bend your body in all sorts of ways to get everything - ugh!

    It's actually funny, I was going to go buy quilting needles and stork scissors but now I'll take my chances at this giveaway first ;) The fabric is gorgeous too! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My least favorite is dishes, mostly because I always wait to long and then they are hard to clean!

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a very nice giveaway:)

    My least favorite thing to clean is the dishes and that is why my hubby has that chore!!!

    I would rather clean the bathroom then do a load of dishes.

    good luck everyone-

    ReplyDelete
  50. Lovely giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

    My least favorite housework chore: all of it!but dusting is the worst.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My favorite chore is to pick up the small pieces of fabric and thread in my stiching room because it means that I have had time to quilt . I hate all the other chores....
    Best wishes from France

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dusting, I hate to dust,oh I do it because I like a clean house but it is my least favourite thing to do. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I don't have a cat, but I have 3 dogs who all laze on the furniture. I want to know, how does the dog hair weave itself into the upholstery fabric on the couch???? AARGH! But picking all that out is not my least fave chore. I just really hate folding the laundry!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. What a fun giveaway...I like when you make us work for the entry! My least favorite chore is cleaning the tub..I have a large tub and I have to climb in there to really scrub it. Thanks for the chance to win. My blog link is

  55. Worst household chore: Washing dishes by hand. I was the oldest of 7 kids and had to wash the dishes, believe me that's ALOT of dishes! When I got married my hubby said I did a lousy job on the dishes and he's washed them ever since! Super giveaway...thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dishes. Yep, that's probably it, or the toilet. Ugh.

    The fabrics are lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wonderful prize! I have followed for a while now, enjoy your blog.
    Least fav cleaning job inside is dusting ceiling fans and lights, we have roof height ceilings! Outside job is cleaning chicken coops (nuff said 'bout that!).

    ReplyDelete
  58. I (contrary to everyone else I guess) LOVE DOING WINDOWS, I hate DOING DISHES, seems so mundane, and you have to do them at least 1 time a day, I like chores that don't have to be done every day. And if you don't do the dishes every day it is way different than missing a spot on the window, everyone KNOWS YOU DIDN'T DO YOUR DISHES!!!!!!!!! YUCK, YUCK, YUCK and OH YES we do have a dishwasher so doing the dishes consists of rinsing them and putting them in the dishwasher, except for the pots and pans etc.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Washing dishes is the most dreaded chore. One night as a kid, for punishment, my dad stood over me while I was washing the dishes. If the dish wasn't perfectly spotless he would toss it back into the dish water & make me wash it again. I think it took 2 or more hours to wash about 5 plates, 6 bowls, 3 glasses and silverware. I HATE washing dishes.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Least favorite cleaning chore - toilets! I do them first to get it over with. My favorite cleaning chore is putting my items back in their nice newly cleaned spot, spraying the final wisp of air freshener and grabbing a cup of coffee! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. Happy quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My least favorite chore is cleaning the toilet; need I tell you why?!!! But some things just have to be done........

    Thank you for the chance to win your lovely fabric giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  62. My least favorite chores--emptying the dishwasher! I have to do it every day, but I hate it! But!! I hate cleaning the oven even more!
    Otherwise, I do not mind cleaning. I'm a bit of a neat freak, and I love the feeling of having everything all tidy and in order.

    Love your giveaway prizes, and I'm hoping I get to give them a new home!! Thanks for a chance!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I believe my favorite about cleaning is when it is done and it is nice and clean :) I can't say I like anything about cleaning, but I think the worse is to clean ceilings. I will not tell you when I last did clean my ceilings.....
    You have a wonderful giveaway, the fabrics are so beautiful. Thank you for the chance to win them! Happy fall to you!

    ReplyDelete
  64. My least favorite cleaning job is dusting because the more I sew, the more dust I make and it's a never ending job! Beautiful fabric. Thanks for participating in the giveaway.

  65. My least favorite cleaning chore is cleaning my blinds. Wish I could just snap my fingers and they'd be sparkling fresh. But that doesn't seem to work. Thanks for the chance to win. Nola

    ReplyDelete
  66. Lovely fabrics! My favourite chore is washing dishes (no dishwasher in this house). My least favourite is dusting; it just seems like you dust and then you need to do it again a few hours later. Thanks for a chance at your nice giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  67. For a big job, I hate cleaning the oven. It's self cleaning, but it stinks and it's awkward, and just don't like it. For a small job, I hate dusting. I try to keep the knick-knacks to a minimum, but I still have more than enough dust catchers. It makes me sneeze and makes my eyes water (allergies!) the fabric is lovely. mary6850 at gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  68. I hate to dust...I just can't seem to keep up with it. That and the spider webs that appear right after you have cleaned. cwhippc@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  69. I hate doing dishes. There are 5-6 people in this house (sometimes more if neighbors' kids are over), and no one can use only 1 cup, more like 3 for each person! I swear, I am the only person who does the dishes in this house. And if the dishes aren't clean out of the washer, someone else can do em'! Marianne

  74. I hate to clean at all but if i have to pick it's cleaning toilets after the boys have been in there. Love the fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I hate mopping floors, but I love the feel of a nice, freshly cleaned floor. Guess I can't have it both ways, huh?! I suppose my favorite cleaning chore is doing the dishes - warm water, quick job (usually!), and a chance to be quiet and think or listen to music.

    ReplyDelete
  76. What beautiful prints. I hate doing the dishes, which stinks because it is a daily job. Surprisingly, I actually really like cleaning the bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love these prints, they are so pretty! The least favorite cleaning chore is dusting....I simply can not stand it, and it seems more times than not, once I am done, it looks like I never even started..Dust is a problem for some reason...ugh!

    Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I actually don't mind doing dishes!! I love the leaves in that one print!!! Thanks for participating--fun times!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Your fabrics are beautiful. I'm not sure I could give them away if they were mine. I really hate cleaning and have to bribe myself by listening to audio books while I do it. We have really hard water and I hate cleaning the toilets, because they never look sparkling clean.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

    My least favorite chore is doggy doo doo pick up... because it's like hunting for Easter eggs every day, he doesn't go in the same area of the yard. We have a big dog. I also hate it during the snow season especially when it freezes to the ground and I have to wait for a thaw and that means muddy ground too. But I love our doggy and he's worth the mess. ;)

    Blessings, Jessica

  81. WASHING DISHES! Ugh, my least favorite chore - standing over a sink that is to low for me,and hands getting all pruny, I'd rather clean the toilet!
    Thank you for participating in the "Fall into Fall Giveaway"! Not only does it give us the chance to win some pretty great prizes, but we also get to meet some amazing people! Thanks again and take care - Elizabeth

    ReplyDelete
  82. My least favorite is laundry because it's never ending. I also don't like how many steps it takes to accomplish it all. I usually get to the point of folding then collapse for an hour before putting them away.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I absolutely depise dusting and washing floors . Anyway lovely giveaway

  87. Good Morning Mayleen Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share for the Fall into Fall blog HOP giveaway. I love the fabrics, the colors are so gorgeous and I adore the scissors. Always wanted a pair. I am crossing my fingers and toes on this one. I love it.

    I signed up to follow your blog and browsed a little. I love the photos of you son and new DIL. How precious they all look, and your daughter looked so pretty in her dress. Loved the colors.

    I also loved the color for your blouse. I was hoping you would show it finished. Beautiful.

    I loved traveling along on the drive trip. I have never been to Mt. Rushmore, or Old Faithful. They were both so exciting to see. I really loved the Hoover Dam too. You would think living in Phoenix, I would have at least gone there, but nope I am not much a driver person. Give me a plane every time and I am on it. Love to fly.

    Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well. I love meeting new friends and sharing ideas and crafts.

    Hope you have a beautiful Sunday and have something fun planned for the afternoon.

    Country hugs sweet friend, Sherry

  88. I hate cleaning the shower. I feel like there is not enough air in there with the smell of the cleaner. It is definately a job I have my husband do.

    ReplyDelete
  89. my least favourite job is window cleaning...they never look clean no matter what...

    ReplyDelete
  90. I don't like cleaning the cat box or the oven because neither is self cleaning. Thanks for the opportunity to win such beautiful fat quarters- I once had a fat quarter of wheat and used it very sparingly to make it go far- this one looks equally gorgeous. You are going to make someone happy when you draw their name.

  91. Oh my goodness, I just saw stork scissors like these at the quilt store last week. They are so cute.

    Okay, my least favorite cleaning chore is cleaning cobwebs. They accumulate between the glass on the windows and it is so hard reaching between two panes of glass. I normally have to stick something flat between the glass to clean the cobwebs out and then I have a big mess on the window sill and the floor.

  92. I so need the big eye needles! I'm getting to that stage where I'm going to have to have my daughter or whoever I can corral thread a bunch of needles for me...that or buy the clover needle threader...those needles should stave off those things for a bit longer.
    IHATE HATE HATE cleaning the tub....I think it is because this old monster is like 40 yrs old and the finish isn't so glossy anymore so it always looks dirty to me...
    But I LOVE LOVE LOVE to do laundry! Love hanging it out every summer on the line. Had six kids and live on a farm so it is a good thing I liked laundry or every day would have been drudgery...I did at least 2 loads every day and extra when it was bedding or towels needing washing....

    ReplyDelete
  93. What gorgeous fabrics! I hate dishes - oh, I don't mind washing them, but filling the dishwasher, emptying the dishwasher, judging the spouse by the sheer number of pans he generates when he cooks....

    ReplyDelete
  94. My least favorite job is cleaning the shower and tub. DO you stand in and clean or try to lean in which doesn't really work for me.It seems to take forever.

    Beautiful fabric in your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  95. My least fave: definitely laundry. It's like a bottomless pit! What gets me, is that we are so fortunate to have these "time-saving" features (compared to a hundred years ago)...yet they had one day a week that they did laundry. I'm doing it every other day! What gives??

    ReplyDelete
  97. I am a horrible housekeeper, and don't clean nearly enough.
    That being said, cleaning almost anything in my new house is SO rewarding. (It actually makes things look good!) Now I actually get some satisfaction out of cleaning a bathroom - in my old place, the finish was so worn that it didn't look or feel any better after I finished.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Lovely giveaway. My least favorite cleaning job is the ceiling fan. Oh goodness, that thing gathers dust. Then when I try to clean it, the dust all falls down in my face. Let's just say it does not get cleaned as often as it should be. LOL Have a great day. Winona

  105. Great gifts! I guess my worse favorite chore is putting away the clutter. I always seem to find something interesting and end up looking at it, or reading it, instead of getting that chore over with!

    ReplyDelete
  106. My least favorite is cleaning the toilet and tub. We have hard water that makes it more work; and I have not got the endurance anymore that the scrubbing takes. Yes, I still do it on a regular basis regardless...I like a clean house.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I hate to clean the floors. They need swept about 5 times/day with all my kids and mopping takes forever. Sometimes I wish I had a smaller house.

  108. My least favorite cleaning chore is our shower. No matter how hard I work on it --- I just can't seem to get off all the hard water stains.

  135. Well this is an easy one! With three boys and one husband the bathrooms are my WORST chore EVER!! Thanks for the chance to win your great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  136. This is an EASY answer, the PORCH which includes a soaker sink... The reason I pick this is with being on a farm/ranch and my hubby seems to bring in an asortment of dirt, straw etc, then addind a 3 year old and 2 dogs to the mix, it is just never clean and when you spend 3 hours cleaning and then a day later it looks like I did not even clean it.

  140. Favorite chore--can there be a favorite chore? Probably bathrooms, honestly, 'cause once you scrub the tub it's ready for a relaxing bubble bath :-) And there's nothing like a clean-smelling bathroom (aaahhh...) Least favorite is pulling weeds, especially during muggy Tennessee summers!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Well since the fabrics are absolutely
    gorgeous you've forced me to think
    about cleaning! It's probably cleaning
    the bathroom that's the worst for me...
    4 boys/men in the house. enough said.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I really hate dusting. I don't mind laundry at all or vacuuming but I hate dusting. Why? because you have to move stuff. Pick it up, dust it, dust the place it was residing and then do the next thing. Then of course, there is the stuff on the walls. Dust the pictures - top, sides bottom, move on - oh, but wait, is it straight? Straighten it and move on to the next thing on the wall - the clocks, the pictures, the nic naks... I HATE dusting. The tv is the worst because of all the static. The dust just keeps coming back...

    ReplyDelete
  149. I, too hate dusting. I don't mind laundry or cleaning bathrooms. Maybe some of us should pair up and help each other out :) Wonderful giveaway! Thanks for participating in the blog hop!

  166. Well,my favourite cleaning chore is easy - I love doing laundry. I do not really know why. Maybe cause I like sorting stuff ...and laundry is also a nice thing to do in between other things.
    I do not like to put laundry away though. And I do not like ironing. The thing I like least would probably be mopping ... But there are quite a few cleaning chores I really do not enjoy!
    Thanks for the giveaway. And if you want to come by my blog and enter my

    ReplyDelete
  171. I became a follower and I'm very excited about those sissors. As for cleaning - I hate all of it. I much prefer to sit in my chair and tell others what needs to be done. Yet, no one is listening so I have to get up and go do it.

  177. Hello, I think my least favourite would have to be cleaning the shower...no wait - cleaning the oven. Both are jobs I put off for as long as possible, but get the greatest satisfaction when they are done.
    I like vacumming, mostly because it is relatively easy and gives almost instant gratification and results.
    Thank you for this chance at such lovely fabrics.

  183. Wow...I really can't think of one thing I hate cleaning since I don't like cleaning at all! Don't get me wrong. I like a clean house, I just don't care much for actually doing the cleaning. I guess I'll go for which cleaning I don't mind doing and that would be laundry...since I can put the clothes in the wash and go do something more fun.

    ReplyDelete

  188. Call me strange, but I like to clean the bathroom...? I think it's because it's small and contained and doesn't take a lot of time!

    My least favorite is emptying the dishwasher...it's a never-ending chore!

    Thanks for the giveaway...Debbie (bamamomdeb@gmail.com)

    ReplyDelete
  189. Favorite chore- Dishes. I know, I'm probably weird. But having to stand there is just like meditation for me. I can sort through most of my thoughts.
    Least favorite- steam cleaning carpets... they are NEVER clean enough!

  190. I enjoy running the vaccuum - instant gratification - makes the house feel so much better! (2 cats, 1 long-haired dog, and a dust-bunny generator that I KNOW is hidden somewhere in the house)

  193. I'm not crazy about any cleaning, but guess the one I hate most is scrubbing floors. I have to have a clean house before I feel comfortable sitting and sewing, so I keep at it each day.

I bet I am the wierdo here..I do not mind doing the dishes by hand...the warm water feels good to my arthritic hands and I do dishes by hand more than I use the dishwasher. I also like doing the laundry. I have been teased that I should have bought a laundramat. I do not like to clean the shower or under the beds. (that hurts).
