  1. That's even nicer than the other one! I live in Christchurch, New Zealand. Despite the earthquakes it's still a great place to live; easy to get around, normally a nice climate and it's home.

  2. Hi Jan. I live in Valtice in the Czech Republic, for the last 7 years. Life here is a much slower pace, family values are important, and, in my little town anyway, we don't see the violence and crime that we see on the TVs in the UK and USA. I'm orginally from the UK.

  4. I live in the London suburbs, after growing up in London itself. I love how friendly our community is and how low the crime levels are. We have a park just 5 mins from our house where I spend most afternoons with my two pre-schoolers! I miss the hustle & bustle of the city and having everything on my doorstep, but would never move back (even if I could afford the house prices)

  5. I live about 1.5-2 miles from the large university where I attend graduate school. I usually drive, but the bus system is very good and walking some places is manageable. It's a pretty small town, so it's a little less intimidating than being in the middle of a major city.

  12. I have just moved to NE Pennsylvania after fifteen years in Georgia. I loved the summer up here and the winter has not been so bad (but we are getting a lot of snow right now!). I know this winter was not typical, but it was a nice way to ease into the harsher winters!

    I have also lived in Texas (born here; lived there 4 months), South Carolina (4 years), North Carolina (most of my life - this is my "home"), Germany (3 years), Kentucky (6 months), Kansas (3 years), New Jersey (4 years), Georgia (15 years) and NE PA (7 months - so far). Whew - that made me tired!

  55. I live in Southern Alberta. I love it here since the winter is fairly mild (by Canadian standards) and the summers are gorgeous. We get a lot of sun and prairie blue skies, and I'm only an hour or two away from the mountains.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I live in a little town in northern Michigan. I love it, we know almost everyone in the town and if I ever have a problem or need anything, I know that someone will come to my aid. We are very close knit and take care of each other. I have a group of people that I quilt with every week and I teach sewing to a group of ladies. If I lived in a city (which I have a couple of time) this would not be the case.

Thanks for the chance to win a cool charm pack & happy Leap Day to you.

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a fun charm pack! I live in Wisconsin, but we're not getting the snow here in the southern part of the state, it's rain/sleet instead. I like the rolling hills and open fields and nature in this area. Not so much in winter, but 3 out of 4 seasons isn't bad!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I live in Texas and love it in the winter and fall. It's too hot and humdity the rest of the year.

    ReplyDelete

  71. I've lived in a number of places in Europe and now live in the UK. I think wherever I've lived, that has been my favourite place at that moment in time. And how could I choose between the excitement of my mis-spent 20's in Malta and the happiness of getting married in Germany or the deep contentment after 30 years of marriage, now in the Home Counties??

    ReplyDelete
  72. Lovely charm pack. I have always lived in NY but moved around a bit. Finally now reside in the nothern part of the Adirondacks.

  81. Wow! A second giveaway-- you are so generous! Thank you!! And this fabric is beautiful too-- in a different way from the 30's prints..=== very vibrant and rich colors! :-) I live in a rural community near the coast in Alabama. We have lots of southern pine forests, lots of fields with cotton, and soy beans, and a lot of cattle fields. I love living here-- it's peaceful and quiet.. It does get pretty hot and humid in the Summer, and we have the occasional hurricane, but we have very mild winters and I can definitely stand the heat better than the cold! :-)

  96. I am in the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle Wa and I love it! Grew up in Minnesota and never thought I could get through a winter without snow, but now that I am older, I can really appreciate the gentle and green winters. If I want snow, I can go to the mountains just an hour away!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I live in Pinedale Wyoming, a little mountain town about 7,300 ft. elevation. I love it here because we're in the mountains and just minutes from a dozen or so lakes.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I am now living in BC Canada, but while the climate is a little milder and winters with a little less windchill and snow...the gardening is NO good at this elevation! i find I am a little too remote and starting to crave "community" like in Manitoba.
