  2. I slept for 8 hours last night!!! First time in I cannot tell you how long! So I am just now getting to the hop and I am all smiles as the offerings today just cannot help but make you smile!

    I just ordered my Harrington fabrics and cannot wait to make those bunnies from The Raspberry Rabbit! This is for my good friend Faith who needs some cheering up!

    The block with the bicycle really made me happy... I have been planning a crazy quilt block design to depict my life from childhood to now and a bicycle is in the design... But not a lamp post... It will be leaning against a clothes line. You see, I ran in to our clothes line when I was learning to ride. lol

    So many awesome blocks in this hop! How does one choose a favorite! :)

  14. Almost missed two of them and they turned out to be my favorites quiltingbydawn and
    Moose Stash Quilting
    the two names were squished together and I thought they were one (and I guess I thought I already clicked on it) When I didn't see the turkeys anywhere I went back.
    I'm having trouble posting on some blogs, I just can't find the spot to do it and then I get tired of looking. Today I did fairly well. got an email from one blog cause I posted in the wrong spot lol. love ya all for putting up with me. :)
