Last day of Dare to Dresden Blog hop and YOU raised the bar to high!



So we meet again. If you are here, I am your last
visit of this delightful creative blog hop.
 With each hop YOU all get more creative and you raise the bar.
YOU raised it sooo high this time...I could not 
reach it. I would like to say it is because I am only 5 Ft tall..
But that wasn't sooo....

YOU were all AMAZING...
Some of you were just downright
Phenomenal! lol

Although I did make 
quite a few dresdens ( nope not telling lol) 
 ------ and may I remind you
I had never made one before the button above....
that orange black and grey one....

I seem to remember reading that quite a
few had never made dresdens before this hop....
what can I say...YOU Wowed me and so many others...

YOU dared me, well to put it straight..
I dared myself since I did come up with the name lol

I am only showing YOU 1
 however it does have 3 mini dresdens...

They could fit into your hand they are so small..
They have 24 plates...( is that what you call them ?)
I cut up some templates from  OBOL packaging..
( they happen to make great sturdy ones, the packaging that is)

I made the two larger dresdens  first... stitched them 
all by hand...then downsized the template in half,  and made the smaller one..
it is only 2.5 inches in diameter...

What the "beep" was I thinking lol...

So I have 3 mini dresdens, now what? 

I thought I could make them into balloons...
but that was not enough...
I sketched this wee tot, and appliquéd a dress
on her to match my dresdens 
and started stitching ....AGAIN. 

In this HOP you all WON!

Yes Carol, you beat me....lol
What can I say , I am such a disappointment lol
We weren't competing were we....?

We may have to entertain another DRESDEN Hop someday..
I need a whole lot more  practice so I too can raise the bar for others ....

Soooo here she is...
I called this framed piece "You raised the bar too high!"
A reminder to "me" I just cannot be good at everything lol...

And if anyone of you like this wee tot....
for the next 24 hours I will send it to you...
So you too can stitch her up...
just say WEE TOT YES with your email in comments.! 
( if you are a follower the pattern is yours)

( to make up for my 1 project wink) 

And for my  giveaway...I thought I would call upon Jane at Jane's Fabrics
some Presencia Threads....for an upcoming Stitch me up Blog hop...


WE also have our  bundles from Windham Fabrics
that will be announced on Monday! 

These are the delightful creators I shared my day with...

 Thursday - January 31th, 2013


And to thank Christine our resident Cheerleader..
She did well didn' t she? 

Well I sketched a likeness of her when she was a wee tot
in her favourite color BLUE! 

She gets the pattern to stitch it into a likeness of HER.
It will be simply called 
WEE TOT Christine! 

Wasn't she cute?  Well she still is! 





And Windham Fabrics is our sponsor 
with their I LIKE YOU collection by Amy Sedaris..
They have put up a rather funny post about Amy Sedaris collection..


#3 winners will win these brand new bundles
for top 3 of the day
for overall participation
and for leaving comments.

( winners announced on Monday)


Our Last top 2 of this hop....


Ok this is a bulls-eye....look at those colours...her stitching...have no idea how large
it is but I bet it is bigger than 2.5 inches lol 
Great colour choices and very vivid, reminds me of an eye....
take a look at it again...amazing isn't it? 




Now this lady shares it was her first dresden...Shut the front door...
and let's keep her for ourselves..this lady truly is an artist...
Everything about this screams top 2....Bravo my dear! 


And most creative has to go to this lady...



And this lady never disappoints...except for the fact that she 
WAS NOT going to play with us....How pleased we were that 
she reconsidered...look at those wheels....now this certainly rolls
me over for uniqueness and creativity...
YOU Vroom Vroom for sure!

  41. You never disappoint us. We know you are going to surprise us in a big way and you always deliver! Another job well done! The wee tot is adorable. And we all know that working with small things (and very large things) can be very challenging. Thank you for putting together the blog hop and participating in it, too! All the folks have been fantastic. And our cheerleader has been a true cheerleader (from the mom of a cheerleader!) She is awesome (that's a real cheerleading term)! I'd love a copy of the wee tot pattern. Again, many thanks for a marvelous hop and a wonderful project.

    The Top picks for today look great!
    I am astonished by the creativity all around with this blog hop. It was as if you started a brush fire of inspiration haha
    I am off to visit now, as I just rolled out of my nest.

  53. Very cute! So impressed with the size! And of course your stitching is adorable as always.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think you really won, because there is absolutely no way I would have hand sewn those teenie-tiny little blades (or whatever we call them)together. Nope! Wouldn't do it. She is so adorable and that is such a great idea to mix applique with embroidery. Who wouldn't want to win that little beauty. Thanks for all your inspiration and work to get this hop together.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love this- Wee Tot Yes is perfect and would love to make her for my sewing room!

  56. Great job with your 'dresdens' and great job with the hop. I have had friends tell me they have spent hours looking through all the blog posts.

  65. Now that this blog hop is over, what excuse will I give my hubs for having to sit at my computer for such a long time every morning, perusing all the blogs with the need to 'acquire' the knowledge needed to quilt? I love, love, love your little girl and her Dresden balloons. Your are so creative and talented.
    WEE TOT YES please.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think your dresdens are excellent and the way you used them is so sweet.
    Wee Tot Yes! please! I am a follower too.
    This has been another fun blog hop. Such great creations.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Wee Tot Yes - and I love your creative spirit - this is a wonderful Dresden because you were thinking outside the box. You are so "much more good" at everything in our opinion. The Dresdens have definitely been a creative and inspiring journey through this blog hop. I wish all hoppers would leave comments on everyone's blog and not just the ones with giveaways - everyone needs to be praised and encouraged and I feel that some have not been as appreciated for their participation. IMHO only ... Judy C in NC definitely thanks you and Christine for another wonderful hop.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I have to agree with you in that everyone's creativity was over the top!! I was inspired by many of the dresden projects. I love your precious little girl. I wish I could draw/sketch. I can copy but I don't have the talent to free-hand my own designs. Thank Goodness my felloq quilters and You, Samm have that talent.

  69. Wee Tot YES! Oh my, Madame Samm, I would say you made it right up there with everyone else! Your little Dresdens and wee tot are absolutely adorable! And thanks so much for this hop--I've so enjoyed seeing all the incredible creations and I've even started a leader/ender project of Dresdens of my own. This has just been so much FUN!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wee Tot Yes! Madame Samm, as usual, you have come through with something very creative. How sweet she is. Thanks for all your hard work as this blog hop has been fantastic! I always learn something new from these blog hops so the saying you "can't teach and old dog any new tricks" certainly doesn't ring true! From CA, thank you so much!

  110. Your dresden is sooooo......adorable! I do love it! This hop has been so amazing. When I first was thinking of what to do for my project and looking out at what others had already done, I thought what more can be done with a dresden plate? The creativity has been so amazing! I can see now that there is so many possibilities. These hops are about the funnest thing I've done with my blog!

  125. Wee Tot Yes! Thank You! I didn't think I would enjoy this hop as I find traditional dresdens a little boring. The creativity and cleverness of the projects has amazed me. I have several great ideas of dresdens I now want to make inspired by the participants of this hop. Thanks to all, especially Christine and you yourself Madame Samm. I have had a great time!

    This was another marvelous hop, Madame Samm. Thank you for all you do to get them rolling and keep things running smoothly. You choose well when it comes to the organizers, too. These hops keep me hopping on the days they run; I'm glad to have the weekends off to catch up so I know you and your cheerleaders need that time also.

I found your hop too late but reminded me of the dresden plate quilt I did a number of years ago (http://www.busyneedle.ch/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Plate-Quilt.jpg). We use that one in the summer now. Now I know where to follow all the greatest hops!
