It's all about ME blog hop..begins on TUESDAY

WE added 2 more days...so it begins on Tuesday ..
here is a recap....

Yes! It's all about ME, but really it is about YOU!

I adore Amy Bradley. ( you can see her latest greatest best here)
I believe she was the very first designer
I came across when I first started quilting.  Upon seeing
her BRAND images....she is all about FUNNY....
I thought "I have got to connect with her..."

She gets me, I get her, we work well together
and wellllll, this is what we came up with....
She did all the work of course, ( I just created the button up there)
 I wanted something we could 
all manipulate into a likeness of us in the future, 
( if you think you don't look anything like HER now....)

Welll just wait...Think of this as a FUTURE YOU....

YOU will get this ladies likeness, with different hairstyles
and pin cushion can be placed, well in a variety of ways...
YOU will see this in AMY's pattern that she designed
with you all in mind for FREE, if you are in our hop...

It is an applique pattern and her instructions are the very best in the industry.
She includes everything, she leaves nothing out....
If ever you wanted to finesse APPLIQUE, this is the hop for you...

You can make her YOU!  floral, stripes, fur, dark glasses, bling on the 
glasses, 3D....wellll I can go and on...but I think you get HER!

 Blog hop will begin on FEBRUARY 19th-28th

And the cheerleader in residence 
who will be leading you in cheer
is also a fine lady with a great sense of humour
who is PERFECT for this...

about the same time as Amy. From the moment I read
her funny come back notes and her blessings salutations...
I just knew we would share many laughs....
And we do. When I told her about this HOP she was quick
to say " I'm IN" 

Our guidelines are always pretty straight forward..

1. Be a cheerleader for all those who participate! 

2. Make your project

3. Take great Photos ( outside when possible are the BEST)

4. Turn off your word verification( if possible just for your day)

5. Be on time, set post for  midnight EST. ( we can help if needed)

6. if you drop out for any reason, YOU will 
be sent a request for payment to Amy for the Pattern... 

7. Be sure the button is on your blog...
If not- you will be discreetly eliminated  from this blog hop 
and all  future blog hops...

 8. Please keep to the theme of our blog hop...
many will cheer for you, for you not trying so hard! 

Big thanks goes out to Amy Bradley for always being
open to anything I seem to come up with....
She is soooooo COOL!  
( we can still say that can't we?)

and to Marlene, for shaking those POM POMs and 
leading us into cheer!
