Shake your Poms Poms...blog hop day 1 with Clover as our sponsor...and RED Rooster and Aurifil

It may seem we don't have a lot to cheer about these days..
I would like to take a stand and even do a cartwheel...
and shout we have a lot to cheer about...
( and FYI I can still do a cartwheel and splits....a few years
back I was a cheerleader, guess I still am) 

 REMINDER...
WE have each other, we have electricity, 
a place to call home, lots of material....
and some are getting NEW machines
Thanks to those who gave their dollar or two+...
from their hearts. 

There are 2 ladies who will be receiving new machines
any day now, and a third and forth  who are waiting on the sidelines...
YOU can donate and read more here!

They are filled with gratitude let me tell you...
 they cannot wait to join us in our hops..
From their hearts to mine to yours ...they have lots to cheer about...

Today and the rest of this week- they are cheering for all of YOU..

WE are all filled with GRATITUDE
and WE are ready to SHAKE OUR POM POMS...

for this hop...And by golly, she is good. She knows
how to gather us all and teach us to Shake our Pom Poms
So big thanks goes to Thearica for getting us all  up cheering....

April 24

Clover was kind enough and most generous to send us many of these
for winners before we even began..
They make terrific very full pom poms...

If you want one of your own, since we already had them to giveaway
before we began....



AND since we could not get through a blog hop without more giveaways 
for all of our winners...

LOOK....I have a few of these Delightful TOKYO 
101  4x4's from Red Rooster 

for our Top 2 of the day
most creative and all those who participated
as well as all those who leave comments...

I have 3 TOKYOs  to giveaway! 
Ohhhh and some threads
from Aurifil too... yep some large spools...





Top 2 today are 


What a lovely showing this morning, a great beginning to a spring, a lovely morning
for many smiles....
This lady captured it all. her Daisies or could be Gerberas
and white being my very fav flowers...welllll it is sunshine all tied up in swirls...





And for all those bunny lovers...( Me included) a great bunny appliqué with of course
a bright white pom pom....this lady chose perfect spring fabric to showcase her bunny pillow..
An absolute delight....




And most CREATIVE 
( should almost come with a warning lol)

YOU should not have a cup of coffee in your hand when you look at this lol



Wellllllllllll My DH happened to be over my shoulder when I screeched..
OWWWWW....I spilled some coffee on me....lol
he simply stated..." That is just wrong" lol 
WE both went into hysteria... This lady who created this...
welllllll YOU can always say, she brings to her creations a great sense
of humour.... Being a lady and all, I still will secretly whisper..
" I love it" If it brings a smile...what more can you say....
OWWWWWWWW:)

  6. I had to get up early to come and see what we had on the agenda for today and these ladies have really outdone themselves! I am glad it is your job to choose the 3 winners today and not mine. Tough job ahead! :)

    I am proud of these 8 members of our cheerleading squad! Up, dressed and on the field on time, ready for cheerleader practice! Great job ladies!

  8. I KNEW the pom pom clad bikini ladies would be most creative. Everyone one of us spilled our coffee/tea/water. It should have come with a warning label - you are right. Awesome posts today. A good start to what will be a very creative week of viewing pom poms!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Great choices! I really didn't know what to expect with this blog hop! But seeing the bikini lady - anything is likely to pop up! What a hoot!

  12. Good morning Samm. LOL, I am certainly looking forward to looking at what everyone has created. When you first mentioned this blog hop, I was trying to think of what a person could possibly do with pom-poms...and mix it with quilting! My eyes have been opened. I LOVE that bag!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my gosh! I cannot believe how wonderfully creative the use of pompons are! Okay and the last one.. thank goodness I wasn't taking a drink because my computer is safe from a shower. That is just hilarious! I love it!! Can't wait to see what else there is. I had no idea there were heart pompon makers.. That is just awesome. My momma used to make these and put them on top of the hats she made and that was all I ever remember so all of this is just a bonus! You are all super AWESOME!

The bunny, the flowers, and all the other wonderful pom pom creations were just so great! Thanks to the sponsors for those amazing giveaways---wow---love them all!

  28. Ordinarily you would not expect to hear the words pom poms and bikini in the same sentence but that creative gal managed to do it! The post SHOULD have come with a warning label! Well, the day's participants are ALL quite creative but that is just over the top!

    Good to hear that the fund raiser is going as planned and good working machines will be possible.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I laughed and laughed when I saw the most creative for today. What fun. When I saw the pom pom theme, I wondered what everyone would come up with and I did not think of that one!!! Just love it and everyone's wonderful ideas.

  58. Great projects today. After a crazy busy week filled with nothing but bad news and tons of never ending stress. I can home from yest another doctors appointment to sit and look at this hop and the first one I looked at was the bakini pom pom pillow. Thank you for your humor. It put the first smile and laugh on my face since last week. Most creative and to me it is the top winner of all today just by lightening my load for a little while. I put the envelope in the mail for you today with a few dollars for the sewing machines fund Madam Samm. it is coming from South Carolina, USA. So it may take a couple days.
