    I actually got to sleep a little late this morning... hubby isn't going to the tobacco field until 7. But he still set the alarm for 5! When I realized he wasn't getting up I rolled over and took another nap. lol

    1. I am up...I had an assignment that needed tweaking for my professor..got that done, grabbed a cup of josephine and here I am ...in awe...absolute AWE of all of dotty contributors today...

    2. It is a delightfully dotty kind of day! :)

  2. Hugs and kisses, little bird, dots and dots all over--great choices (though so tough with all the fun projects to choose from.) I'm off to visit them all...have a good day!

    1. Hi Carol....well a day later...but psssst I have been sewing...LOTS lol

    2. You do have a lot of catching up to do....LOL. "My name is Dot" is just too funny of a costume--made me laugh with that visual. As for the sponsor's giveaways, those are just amazing and so nice.

  5. Just wanted you to know that I am really enjoying this blog hop. When I first saw the words Dots on Dots, I thought, OMG my head will be spinning now. LOL! But all the projects have been so beautiful that I hardly notice the dots. My blood pressure hasn't gone up any!(I am an elderly woman with high blood pressure.) Looking forward to seeing some more. Have a great day.

    Good morning Missie Samm,
    um, I got up late, but maybe you got up later than me :-D :-D

    these prizes look lovely
    Oh and your silly DOT costume... hey we have all done some snarky ones over the years.
    That reminds me of a story related to Halloween. One year back in days of olden I was out with my daughters as they were riding their bikes.I was just standing on our cul-du-sac watching the girls go around. It was the day before Halloween.
    A car drove down our street and two ADULT clowns were in it- full dress and make up. They very seriously asking me directions. I was laughing lightly at them and they were just sitting there in their car, very straight faced and expressionless. they just wanted directions

    1. I just figured it out, no week-end Dottses.
      Okay! It took me T H I S LONG to figure that out o_O

    2. HI Rosemary...ohhhh yes btw we don't do weekends..gives everyone a breather and also some time to relax with family...at least that is what I try to do....catching up after a very full week..now to do homework...I have a few hours scheduled for today...some assignments to get done for next wed. OHHHh loved your story with the clowns...x

  16. I must say that I really am enjoying all the dotted fabrics and the blocks each person is making. Love the 3 you have on the blog today. I wait until evening to see all the ones posted on Pinterest. I am partial to blues, so I really like the one with the bird. Owner gets first place for today in my mind! LOL!
