Well if they are bagpipes I'd send them round to my Mum who loves all things Scottish.

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

Great giveaway - I'd keep those pipers over Christmas and have them 'pipe' in the New Year for me!

ninjadesigns said...

HA i'd bring them in to work to play for me... no headphones for me! :D

memmens said...

I'd show them the hill where another piper pipes so they could teach him how it's done! thanks for a great prize

Toni said...

Eleven Pipers...hmmm...They could be piping icing onto the most enormous Christmas Cake ever! I would thank them for their lovely work!

deserae said...

I would send them to someone's house to annoy them! Lol!

Staci said...

What kind of pipes are they piping? I've always wondered about that. I think I'd have them play for the local small town Christmas parade!

liberal sprinkles said...

I'd stop them... only so I can get them to teach me all their tricks!

Chicken Julie said...

Congratulations to yesterday's winner. As for today's question.... Pipers Piping? Sounds annyoing. Maybe I'd send them to my kids' school for music class or show and tell - something that gets them out of my hair.

Michael said...

I would have play for my spouse's birthday (the day after Christmas)!

Mrs Chronic-Shock said...

Awesome giveaway today!

I would send all 11 pipers piping through my condominium complex to try and arouse some Christmas spirit around this giant Grinchville!

rachael said...

ooh, i like the send them to the kids' school suggestion. genius!

Lindsay said...

I would assign them to randomly follow around co-workers.

Katie B. said...

I think I'd have to send the pipers packing...

MeganAnne said...

We could use a new water heater... maybe these pipers are just another way of saying plumbers? :)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I'd have all eleven of the pipers help me make piping for the Christmas pillows I am making for gifts! I don't like making piping and if they all helped, I'd be finished in no time!

sally said...

Love the give away. I've always found this song super fun.

Reene@Nellie's Niceties said...

OOOh lovely giveaway goodies today! I'd have to stick my ear plugs in then send them round to my brother and his wife for Christmas and New Year. My sister-in-law is Scottish so it's not a punishment ;)

Amorette said...

i'd ask them to lead my son and i around the block on a holiday parade to look at our neighborhood holiday lights!

Stevens Family said...

Again, I would rent them out. I could make about $120 an hour!

Lindsay Conner said...

Hmmmm.... I'd probably send those pipers to our good friends' house as a joke. Like a piping telegram!

Kara said...

I'd put them to work- 11 men with nothing to do but play music all day long? Psh. ;)

Jeni said...

Oooh, yum! Hmm, I think I'd try to send them to a Christmas Parade somewhere in town! :)

diane said...

First, thanks for a chance to win. Love your tufted tweets!
11 pipers piping...hmmm, maybe make sure they were wearing kilts...are they those kind of pipes? Or are they plumbers? I'd have them reroute my hot water pipes.

Hope said...

I think I'd like the pipers. Make them parade around the house? Hmmm.

zarina said...

I would get those pipers to help clean my craft room so that I can get in the second old dining table inside.

free indeed said...

They'd be playing Christmas music for me ALL month! THen I'd arrange for them to play in the area nursing homes; add wonderful music to our annual parade in Aug....much can be done with pipers.

teaginny said...

what kind of pipes are they playing? bagpipes? If so, I'd love some scottish tunes whilst decorating my house for the holidays.

Anita said...

I would probably listen to a couple of their songs and then send them over to the neighbors house to entertain them

shayshap said...

I would bring them to the hospital to play for the children. thanks, kathy

Flying Blind... said...

I'm hanging out for the 5 gold rings - the pipers can go play far away with the drummers!! Loving this Laurie x

Sonia B said...

If they were bag-pipers, I'd ask them to teach me. I've always wanted to learn. Weird, I know. Thanks for such an awesome give-away.

Erica said...

Hmm, not sure what I'd do with 11 pipers piping but I would probably end up with a headache :)

diana said...

You know, I gave it a lot of thought and decided 12 days [well, 11 left] is a lot of time. And since english is not my first language and I don't really get the jokes :D, I thought I'd tell you a story. In 10 episodes :D

This one is supposed to be the pilot but, you see, it's my first story, so we'll consider I warned you today and will come back tomorrow with the actual story :D

Sequana said...

I'd make a fortune selling earplugs. Those pipes are horrendous.

Your fabric is beautiful, on the other hand.

Brittany said...

I love the pipers ... I would add my brother too the mix and enjoy the music which I have missed with him living so far away. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Tanya said...

11 pipers piping could come blow the dust off everything that is dusty and clean for me!

briscoeslochico said...

With eleven pipers piping I would have them whipping out some Avian Therapy piping to go along my beautiful pillows made with the same fabric. YUMMY!

Julie M. Forster said...

I'm learning to play the banjo. Maybe the pipers and I could start a band? forstejm@yahoo.com

Debra said...

I would probably tell them to zip it because I'm still having my first cup of coffee!

Eve said...

Hmmmm...11 pipers. One Sousa march coming right up.
mapdot{at}gmail{dot}com

Poppyprint said...

They can just join in behind the drummers in my fabulous drill band! Thanks again.

Kirsten said...

Ooh, I think I would use eleven pipers piping for target practice...I would take the drummers over the pipers any day!

DianeY said...

I'd hope they know something about plumbing and have them fix my pipes!

JulieGmehlin said...

I'd put them to work...11 guys would be great to help me get ready for the holidays!

CC said...

Wow! I can't believe I finally won something! I hope it's ok to try to win more of your gorgeous fabric. If I do win two days in a row I'll definitely be buying a lottery ticket.

Not sure what sort of pipe's those are. Someone should really modernize the 12 Days song.

Quilting "b" said...

I now have 11 pipers piping and 12 drummers drumming. I see a parade!!! A parade of beautiful giveaway fabric.

Ann said...

I would have them lead a Christmas parade to spread some cheer.

Deb said...

Not sure what I'd do with 11 pipers - but I love all your fabrics and think this is a fabulous giveaway

Bree said...

11 pipers piping? I'd chase off the neighborhood kid with the noisy scooter by sic'ing the pipers on him. Tweet! Tweet! He'd never rev his engine outside my house again, haha.

Amber H. said...

I'd have them as permanent residents or at least have them come by every morning to wake up my 6 year old for school. Now I know what kind of pain I was to wake up every morning when I was a kid!

I would have the pipers pipe their horns with my neighbor when he's LOUDLY practicing his electric guitar! (He needs the practice, though -- trust me!!)

LesliePKing{at}comcast{dot}net

Kelly said...

i think i told you when i met you that i never bought any tufted tweets, i only just received bits and pieces through swaps, so that's why i'm commenting!! i would send the pipers down the road - with two small kids, i have too much noise in my house as it is!!

Kathryn said...

Those 11 Pipers Piping would be great to ring in the 250th year celebration of my county that begins on New Year's Eve. Kathie L in Allentown

Claire said...

I LOVE tufted tweets!!!!!! I'd probably ask those pipers to stop. (:

Anonymous said...

I'd love to have 11 (bag)Pipers come to my house and pipe away for my neighbors!!!
rivervujc@comcast.net

Sarah said...

As I'm in Edinburgh, Scotland, and the Princes Street pipers are best when they combine with another busker and do a kind of tartany "mash up", I'll get those drummers from yesterday to choose a more modern beat and have the pipers play some contemporary music!

ElizabethB said...

Tufted Tweets is one of my favorite design schemes ever!

I'd probably send the pipers to my relatives to entertain/annoy them :D

gill said...

Fabulous fabrics!!
I'd send the pipers to my next door neighbour who is giving us such a hard time lately!

craftytammie said...

looove tufted tweets! hmm, 11 pipers piping might send me over the edge. i'm usually pretty close anyways. :)

Head Øv Metal said...

As long as they're in sync, eleven pipers sound great! Thanks!

Julie said...

I'm with almost everybody else, I'm going to send those pipers to someone to annoy! Probably the guys who are working on laying pipes on the road behind my house. For the past umpteen million weeks all I hear all day long is the beeping of the equipment when it backs up, ugh! So, the pipers will either annoy them right back for me, or they'll help them lay those pipes faster and get them on their way!

Anonymous said...

I would have them play for my kids when they are bad, maybe they will be good more :)

My google account is not loading for some reason so I have to comment at anonymous

Suzanne said...

I'd send them outside!
Thanks!

Ciara said...

Are the pipers playing the bag pipes? If so, I think I'd send them out to the ND Football stadium for a tailgate party. That'd be one hell of a surprise!

Kelsey said...

I'd have them play for my fourteen month old. He loves music!

mjb said...

I'd get them to frost my cookies! (Get it? Piping? Ha)

jednoiglec said...

I will let them play in my livingroom - our whole family could accompaign them (we've got lots of wooden toy-instruments:).

PS. Today must be my happy day: I love love love Tufted Tweets:)

Kylie said...

I would conduct an impromptu Christmas concert on our street corner- living in a small town this year means I'm really missing all the big holiday concerts I'd usually be dragging my family and friends to.

Sarah@Pings&Needles said...

11 pipers piping? I'd get them to make cupcakes! Cupcakes For All! ...

oh ... and come to me tufted tweets .. *doing hypnotic swirly snake eyes from Jungle Book

Shannon said...

I would have the pipers babysit. My boys would love it!

mab said...

I'd really hope that they are the type of pipers that make and sew custom piping... I've got some pillows I'd like to do, but I don't want to fool with the piping. I'd assign at least 4 of them to that task. The other 7 of them could get the icing bags and do the piping work on a fabulous gingerbread house. If even one of the 11 tries to pull out an actual pipe, I'd full-body-slam them.... my 3 year old is finally taking a nap and ain't NOBODY waking her up!

Vicky said...

What a fun giveaway theme! The 11 pipers piping are welcome to come to my house and pipe away as long as they are willing to do housework so I can quilt! ;)

Cynthia Strickland said...

11 Pipers Piping? Well, we have eleven neighbors near us here in the country so I would send one to each house and have them pipe their favorite Christmas Carol then all come back to my house for warm homemade cookies and milk, or coffee, or ?

FabricDonkey said...

Anyone who wakes the toddler will receive in their room 11 pipers piping in the middle of the night. ;)

hueisei said...

Thx for the giveaway!! I don't love the music they produce, maybe I will sent them outside..

Nicole Follow the White Bunny said...

I would let pipe Foo Fighters songs while I embroider and sew :)

Jennifer Ladd said...

I'd love to have the 11 pipers go wake up my daughter for school every morning. She's so hard to get up, I think that's the only thing that might work!

Stash Avalanche said...

Ah, but they could be pipe smokers, couldn't they, in which case they'd be a health hazard and I'd send them on their way! And if they're pipers like plumbers, perhaps they could sort out my central heating.

laura said...

Surely 11 pipers could entertain (read:drown out) 2 toddlers.

Jenny said...

i certainly think 11 pipers could give my kids a music lesson!!

Liam's Mummy said...

11 pipers piping? I'm going to assume they are bag-pipes. If that's the case, I'd call up my friend Rachel and have her come over here and bring her bag-pipes so she can join in. Will they be wearing kilts? ;)

Annik Miller said...

The drummers were much easier ;) Pipers? Maybe I'd invite people over for a Medieval dance party.

Sooz said...

If they were bag pipers, I'd park them in my back yard and have them play for me. I loves me some bag pipers! I wonder how my chickens would like them?

threadlevelorange said...

11 pipers sounds like an irish funeral procession to me.

ullo said...

11 pipers would be kept in storage over winter, and when sweet summer arrives, I'd put them on the balcony and let them pipe the neighbors asleep each night.

Lori said...

My 11 pipers would be in charge of taking my dogs for a run today. The weather has been rough so the dogs haven't been able to go run lately. They are bouncing off the walls. I figure between 11 pipers they might be able to make a dent in all the energy contained within these two dogs!!!!

poppyinpink said...

That really depends on what they're piping. We had a wee plumbing problem here at the weekend but they'd have to bring their own nose pegs!

Melissa said...

<3 Tufted Tweets. :)
I've already got one piper, so I'd pair up my 12 pipers with my 12 drummers and schedule them for the halftime show at a football game. :)

Carrie L said...

I like the idea of a Christmas parade!

WandaFish said...

I think I'd get the pipers to play for the crowds at the local outlet village which would leave the shops empty for me to get on with my Xmas shopping in peace!
Oh, how I love those tufted tweets - thanks for another super giveaway :)

Barb said...

I'd ask the 11 pipers to play "Pas de Basques and Highcuts" for my 5-year old budding Highland Dancer to put on a show for the grandparents. Thanks for the chance to win.

Jennadesigns said...

I think I'd have to invest in some earplugs! :) Not a humbug, just don't like noise! :) Love your fabrics!

Tong said...

Love Tufted Tweets! Thank you so much for the fabric giveaway! I don't know what I would do with 11 pipers piping, ask them to leave? haha

Marcia W. said...

These piping pips would have to learn to dance a little too. Then, would have them lead the grandnieces round-n-round the house (outside) until the grandnieces were tired and begging to take a nap! Thanks for the giveaway.

Johanna said...

11 pipers piping would fit perfectly in our living room :)
Thanks for the wonderful chance!

clumsykristel said...

Again with the noisy noise-makers, eh? I might send them to harass my boss at work. But that wouldn't be very nice....

(Satisfying though.)

Andrea said...

Oh I'd love this set of lovely fabric! I'd bring out my own flute and join them piping away! A dancing we will go!

Jo said...

Oh please no more noise! I think I would take away their pipes and give them brooms, dust rags, sponges, laundry soap, the vaccume, and any other cleaning supplies I could think of and have them clean the house for me while I went out and did something fun! Tufted Tweets is sooooo cute! Thanks for the chance to win.

Kirsten N said...

I would ask them to play a tune for my Grandmother who loves the pipes.

Wendy D. P. said...

I'd send them out to play carols! Thanks for another wonderful giveaway!

Beth said...

I think I'd send them out into our pasture and let them pipe to their hearts's content--imagine the sounds that would ring through the valley!

Thanks for the giveaway (love those tweets!) and for the fun question. I'm having a great time reading everyone's answers and imagine you are too.

Vintage Girl/Marivel said...

mmmm,not sure...
thanks for the chance!!

Kathy said...

Great fabric line - have some of the pieces and love them!

Sarah Craig said...

Make some slipcovers - because I hate doing my own piping!!!

Belinda said...

I would send them to my 87 year old father & have them play all of his favorite Christmas Carols for as long as he wanted to listen :)

sara said...

Put them to work basting some quilts!

Jen B said...

Send them on a tour of all the schools in the area. :)

nancym said...

Love these fabrics! I'd listen to the pipers pipe while I quilt. Mangelnsm(at)aol(dot)com

SoozeM said...

Well we have a problem with some of our plumbing, so I would get those 11 pipers to fix some of our pipes!

One Little Thread said...

Ok, the Pipers can go on their own to my neighbour and try and teach the child how to play trumpet

Julie said...

They could play while my son has his morning tantrum!!!

Ranelle said...

I'd put'em to work. There is so much I'd like to accomplish before Christmas arrives. I could definitely use some recruits and perhaps a clone or 2. : )

Barb said...

Pipers, hooray, I've been wanting to try some piped binding. Why those pipers would surely make quick work of that project! What do you mean, 'they're not that kind of piper?'

highwaycottage said...

It all depends on what kind of Pipers they are :-) If they are any good with water pipes they can come and organise our rain water collection which needs re-doing after moving our house.

Musical pipers could come and serenade while DH and I work hard in the garden. It's better than listening to the kids arguing.

Shruti said...

I think I'd put them up in kiddo's room! He'll have something to "listen" to for some time! He's the one who's always making the noise in the house - singing, playing his casio, talking!!! It'll be good to see him quiet for a change!
Thanks for the chance to win my favorite fabric!

Patchwork and Play said...

I think I could put up with the pipers a little longer than the drummers!! But 11 of them?? Maybe not!

Sara said...

Hummm... I don't know.. I have 11 brothers so I think i'll give one of each one :)

craftykat said...

I would let them entertain my daughter so I could finally get some sewing done!

Mel Nunn said...

I would get them to pipe icing on my christmas cakes!!

Jennie Salinda/Copper Canine said...

I would take those eleven piper piping right up to my grandbabies' daycare and have them pipe for all the little ones who are loving music especially the Christmas music right now. My 2 yr old granddaughter sits in the back of the car singing." Jingle Bells , All the way" She doesn't get all the word,s but has the tune, and is so happy with herself that she can repeat that phrase. I LOVE IT! Have a Blessed Christmas...

Annette said...

I would send them to the office Christmas party!!

Brigette Joy said...

I would have them play at my husband's school where he is an elementary music teacher.

Diary of a Flutter.Kat said...

What a great idea Laurie! Sadly I missed yesterday. I think I would take them to toddler jam music with me & my girls. The kids would LOVE it.

Pam said...

I would have them play at my little granddaughters Christmas Dance recital on Friday night. I love your Tweets!!! jmichaelpike@aol.com

Debbie said...

Seriously if I had 11 pipers piping show up at my door I would rush them to my sewing room and totally redo the plaid kilt and navy jacket look. I think we would go on the search for some of your modern whimsy fabric and then I think I could listen to them for I would be looking at their attire.

b78ayers said...

I'd send those pipers to my favorite local assisted-living facility to entertain the residents! Many thanks.

hello. said...

11 pipers piping?

I'd kindly put them to work in my studio...need all the help I can get :)

Thank you for this lovely giveaway!

Pam S. said...

If I had eleven pipers piping I would put them to work piping all my unfinished projects.

mary said...

I just love the bright and happy fabrics especially for this time of year. What great fun!!!

Lady Emelote of Calais said...

What a fabulous giveaway! Well this is a tough one! You see, my husband's heritage is scottish so having 11 pipers would be loads of fun and they could pipe to me while I was sewing, though how I would fit them all in my room and not loose my hearing is beyond me this morning. LOL Though I don't think my cats would appreciate it! :)
