  4. I think this is the best blog hop yet. Most everyone seems to be here and they follow the guidelines which makes hopping around sew much easier. The projects are getting better and better. I am now wanting to make lots of things with dots...as soon as I finish some other things I have started. Maybe I can work some dots into those as well. lol

  17. I'm quite surprised at how many different creations can be made from DOTS!! I've enjoyed playing with my own dots and the blog hop has been fun. I really enjoy seeing newbie quilters join in and feel as though they (ME) are appreciated. It can be so intimidating showing your work with all the professional quality work out there. Yet, HERE is a safe place to begin showing others your creative side! Hip Hip Hooray for ALL of us!!
