Dots on Dots day 9 yes sadly, tomorrow is our last day lol 253+ photos including today

Ohhhh speaking of unmentionables yesterday...
I haven't told you this one...
My Nanny who raised me,  she was an amazing,
sewer, cook, knitter...She used to make
me bed socks, with satin ribbons and she
made them all with a speckled wool that looked
like dots...They were like baby booties for grown ups.
I have worn them out since but I always think of her
when I see baby booties...I need to learn how 
to make some for me the grown up  lol

Corrie from  Quilt Taffy is our Cheerleader
for this blog hop...coincidence...
She is an amazing organizer, online
store owner and Dot Enthusiast.
HOW can you NOT LOVE HER!

A sweet treat this morning from this lady, will you look at all the detail, 
the dotted cupcakes, the hand stitching ...well the colours too...a sweet treat indeed! 

This dotted star is perfection...look at how all the points meet,
the colours are brilliant, look at that black inner border,
creates a 3D illusion...yes most certainly an attention grabber! 

completed project...
( btw H.M. is as good as top 2 ) 

And this dresden dotted florals...reminded me of sunflowers
getting ready to seed. The blues and brown contrast
a dotty sunrise...yep that is what it is a dotty sunrise...

  2. Cupcakes for breakfast works for me...I mean, NO, NO, NO cupcakes for breakfast--oatmeal instead. Oh, but those cupcakes look so yummy. Beautiful dotty choices today! Your nanny sounds like an amazing woman, just like you. :O)

    1. HI Carol cupcakes for breakfast..my word lol Oats and steel cut at that ..how many times do I have to tell you lol. and yes Dotty choices were tasty..lol

  3. Great ideas again today! Dotty bed socks! I have had some of those. I can see them now. My mama used to crochet them. (We didn't need anything to keep our feet warm at night since our winters are so mild, but they were perfect when we got out of bed and weren't quite ready to put our shoes on!)

    1. HI Linda...oh my it has been fun...and yes you know about bed socks...yes I do believe the ones my Nanny made had crochet on them too...because the top were ruffled..

  4. I have visited and commented on every blog and if I missed one it was because it wouldn't let me in. I think I got to them all!! Whoo Hoo!
    I'm in the running now!
    Gmama Jane

    1. HI Jane..ohhhh you did good...in the drawing you will go ..for more than one...too

    1. HI Mary...ohhh I am scared about the finale.....lol I am always nervous to show....and even more for everyone on the last day...oh my lol

  6. Hi everyone, its been fun Dotty Hopping with you all, there was one post I couldnt leave because it wasnt a blog but a website. I joined all of them too, I want to keep in contact and see what a few will finish with their dots. funnymesjc at gmail dot com

    1. HI Shirley...glad to have you hopping and contributing..you were noticed...

  7. All I can say is this has been a real dotty experience! Hard to believe tomorrow is the final day. So much happiness, and some sorrow makes you realize how fragile life is.

    1. HI Judy...sorrow...did I miss something lol. Happiness yes..ok, maybe sorrow that we are ending lol

    2. Yes, it seems one of today's ladies just lost her husband. Di of snippets 'n' scraps. She had posted her dots a little late, so I was reading her previous post. Such a brave lady to write what had happened and what she was going through.

  8. What original blocks are made on this bloghop! I enjoyed this hopday very much.

  11. Your nanny knew that those little toes get cold so easy. I always like to put socks on my grandbabies when it's time for bed. :) I look forward to your post - you never fail to inspire. So sad, though, that tomorrow is the end of these fun dotty projects. Thanks, Madame for a great blog - AGAIN!
