10 Days of Swag Giveaway – DAY TWO


BLOG: Robin Bunch & Sandie Mackintosh




For TEN DAYS I will post a blog each morning (sometime between 4am – 7am cst) with that day’s item(s) from the Swag Bag.  For complete “rules” please refer back to my first post about the giveaway on December 6th.

All you have to do to enter on the blog is post the answer to the question I ask.   I think it’s kind of fun to ask random questions and well it’s my giveaway so your a captive audience.  🙂

This year I will always have one gift drawn from Facebook entries.  Yes I am trying to get those of you who I lost in the great switchover this summer and newbies to my NEW Facebook page.  You can find it here.   For Facebook entries I am asking that you just locate the daily graphic that will be posted (this will post at a random time between 5am-2pm) and just comment “Found it” for your entry.   Easy-Peasy.

This is what today’s Facebook Graphic will look like this .SwagDay2

Today’s Swag is Clover Dome Needle Holders and I have three to giveaway.day 2

These are the needle holders that I blogged about a few weeks ago.  A fantastic tool for sewing on the go.  The response to these was so positive that I decided to add them to my website store for the holiday season.

Today’s Question:  In grade school…sit in front or sit in back kind of kid?

I admit I was usually up front.

’til tomorrow,

  1. Candy says:

    Ok, I sat in the front. Now as a teacher I am always up front!

  2. Nora Wilson says:

    I was more the middle kind of student. I didn’t want the pressure of the front row and having to answer everything. And I wasn’t part of the gang that inhabited the back rows.

  3. Lauren aka Giddy99 says:

    I was a middle row kid. I loved answering the questions, but not so many than I was alienated from the fun kids in the back of the class. 🙂

  4. Julietta says:

    Back in the days I loved going to school, so I was usually sitting in one of the front rows. That did not change until it became “seriously uncool” to sit in the front where you can hear every single word the teacher says 😉

  5. Deborah Marshall says:

    I sat in back…. but went to private school and was always required to sit alphabetically…. my married name would now get me on the middle 🙂

  6. Vicky Lynn Carroll says:

    Whenever possible, I sat in the back. Most classes were assigned seating by last name, so no choice!

  7. Judy D in WA says:

    I loved school so I was an up front kid. 🙂

  8. Nancy says:

    I sat up front as I loved school!

  9. Becky/Quilting Booklady says:

    Seems I was always near the back. We were always in ABC order. Somehow “R” left me near the back. I was a quiet student. The “noisy” ones were in front. Great question!

  10. Carolyn Briese says:

    In the middle so I could be surrounded by my classmates.

  11. Irene says:

    Because we had to sit alphabetically, and my maiden name starts with a “Y.” I was “stuck” in the back….

  12. Sue McVicker says:

    Good Morning Mickey! I sat in the front if able, but most classes arranged us alphabetically. I wasn’t too far from the front then unless the teacher got creative and did vertical rows…Have a fantastic day and keep warm!

  13. Marilyn R says:

    It seems I always sat in the middle. We always sat alphabetically and my maiden name started with H.

  14. Donna Coffey says:

    I was usually somewhere right in the middle 🙂

  15. Glenda says:

    I was up front… couldn’t see the board until I got glasses

  16. Beth says:

    Good Morning
    Thank you for this fun giveaway I have really wanted one of these for my traveling Hexie projects. Front row for me when we were not seated alphabetically. I loved being the teachers helper when I was in grade school.

  17. Kim says:

    Alphabetical so back for me!

  18. Maggie Szafranski says:

    I was a middle of the room generally, although I now like to sit in the front row. I do remember in 6th grade sitting as far away from the teacher as possible, which meant I had a desk by the window. But I think we had assigned seating, and as the smartest kid in the class, I think I was put back there because Mr. Brown knew I would stay out of trouble. Except Wes Alt and I had a running tic tac toe game the entire year!

  19. Carol says:

    Middle usually. Bad kids sat at the back and I didn’t want the front because I liked to read my current library book during class. Obsessed with reading.

  20. Alice Ridge says:

    Second row, always wanted the front row, but the other kids teased those kids as “techer’s pet” …so second row- close enough without the hassle !!

  21. I was in the front. You are making us do math to post a comment, hope I get the answers right! Lol

  22. Deb G. in VA says:

    I was usually in the back. My school seated us alphabetically.

  23. Connie Massner says:

    I had to sit in the back because I was so tall and blocked the view for a smaller kid.

  24. Audrey says:

    I sat in the front. I couldn’t see otherwise. I got glassed in Grade Six and the world changed.

  25. Sharon says:

    We always had assigned seating! I was usually in the back because my last name started with W. Now I choose the front because I can see and hear better!

  26. Amy Lause says:

    Seems like we were in alphabetical order, no options back then.

  27. Jackie G. says:

    Started in back, because of alphabetical seating, but usually ended up in front because of having so many friends & TALKING!

  28. Diana LaFaro says:

    It was alphabetical for me, too. With a last name starting with A, I was usually in the second or third seat in the first row. I still prefer to be closer to the front. There are fewer distractions.

  29. Christy says:

    I was more of the hide me in the middle somewhere kinda kid. Now I prefer front so I get all the info.

  30. Grace says:

    I was more the back of the room kid, until I couldn’t read the blackboard. Then I was forced to move to the middle of the room until I got glasses (but I pretty much stayed in the middle!). I hated sitting in the front!!

  31. Jane says:

    I always tried to sit in the back, especially in the classes with subjects I did not like…..

  32. Keri E says:

    Typically, in my school we were placed in alpha order so with my last name starting with a C at the time…. I was pre-destined for the front… when I was rarely given the CHOICE… I would sit towards the back… never in the back cuz THOSE kids would be picked on by the teacher in particular…. always thinkin…. lol

  33. Lee Ann L. says:

    I had no choice. I was always in the front of the classroom due to the fact I needed to read lips (deaf).

    I’ve been wanting one of these! Can’t find them in my local crafts store and don’t want to pay shipping on such a small item!

  34. Pat M says:

    Middle kind of kid…. Middle child too.. LOL

  35. Kathy says:

    Given the choice, back. But we usually were assigned seats and I was in front.

  36. Heidi Teachout says:

    Back! Didn’t want anyone to notice me…. 🙂

  37. Then and now: sit in front. Alphabetical at first, now I just like to be up front.

  38. Genee Davis says:

    I was shy and a good kid….always sat in the back….until I couldn’t see the board and mom talked to the teacher! Sigh…small town living, knowing the teachers! Lol

  39. Robin Bunch says:

    I was kinda up front but didn’t want to be called on.

  40. Carol Florcyk says:

    I was usually somewhere in the middle as they seated us alphabetically.

  41. Robyn Orchard says:

    In grade school I usually sat in the middle. Alphabetical order you know but me there. But when it was discovered that I couldn’t see the chalkboard my parents got me glasses and a seat in the front. Now I always sit in the front. Those are the students that get the A’s

  42. Denise F says:

    Usually the second row…lol. didn’t want to look like a teachers pet but wanted to be up in the action. Loved school!

  43. Janice Spitzer says:

    Front or middle. In 1st grade got moved up next to teacher for talking too much. Also had to write “I will not talk in class” 100 times.

  44. Brenda says:

    I am and always have been a front and center girl. If there is anyone between me and the teacher I am easily distracted by the other things going on in the room.

  45. Always in the back. Didn’t like front row. I’m still a little that way today

  46. Esther says:

    We had no choice – the alphabet was the rule, so I was always too near the front to do those “back of the bus” stunts. (Except once in biology w/ a sub. teacher! LOL)

  47. Jackie says:

    “C” puts me up front, now I like the back because I usually have to get up, gotta move.

  48. Margaret Schindler says:

    I was a sit in front. Eyesight wasn’t good.

  49. Sandie says:

    When we weren’t seated alphabetically, I sat towards the center of the room, where I could still hear and see, but also available to let some people who couldn’t see and hear as well from the back get the help they needed! 😉

  50. Dorothy Matheson says:

    I was and still am a sit at the front gal. Near sighted and I can see and hear much better up front.

  51. Karen Miller says:

    I was a middle row sort of kid

  52. Becky Lomasney says:

    Sad to say I was a sit in front girl, of course with her hand permanently up.not so much anymore.

    We rarely had a choice! we had to sit alphabetically!!! If I had a choice I’d always choose the front!

  54. I was usually in the middle. We were seated alphabetically.

  55. Gwen W says:

    Most years we were arranged alphabetically – except for that one teacher who put us in order by our grades! (Yikes) If I could choose, I would sit near the windows.

  61. Tonya R. says:

    I was a middle of the room type of kid…more often than not because of the alphabet!

  62. Vicki Sprain says:

    Wherever the teacher put me! I always like the front better because I paid better attention!

  63. Lori says:

    I would sit in the middle…away from the talkers in the back and not too close to the teacher up front…didn’t want to be called on. 🙂

  64. Heather P says:

    Sit in front I had bad eyes…… so not by choice

  65. Maureen says:

    Toward the back … Most teachers sat us alphabetically and my last name started with an S. I lived in terror that I would be called on and would have to talk in class.
