Day 3 of our Tammy Blog hop with RBD and Corrado Cutlery DOVO scissors as our Sponsor

Summer seems to be taking its time to get here, perhaps a splash of gingham 
here and there will bring whispers of sunshine and hours of stitching inspiration.

This Tammy Bag ( pattern here)will no doubt inspire you- we have a line up
of over 50 creators who will be doing their OWN thing with this pattern
and showing you what they have poured into it...

Look who is up today...
Cheer them on, they continue to be the inspiration 
of our Blog HOPS- without them, well we just would not exist! 

June 14th ( friday)

STARS in our Quilting and Sewing International Quilting BEE! 
Our doors are always open for YOU too!

And with Gingham being soooo much the fabric of my inspiration this year...
I called upon Riley Blake Designs who of course is leading in the GINGHAM fever..
They have 3 gorgeous bundles of Gingham fabric for 3 winners at the end of our 
blog hop. I also called upon Jim at Corrado Cutlery who happens to have 
DOVO Scissors. I have 2 pairs and I cannot imagine sewing or quilting without them.
In fact they were the inspiration behind me designing this TAMMY BAG. I wanted
to have them in a place I could always find them, hence the pockets on the outside
of this bag.   If you have never used DOVO scissors can I say they are possibly the BEST
scissors I have ever owned. By now you all know I never ever talk about anything I don't believe
in 100%. So thanks to Jim, we have 2 pairs to giveaway in addition to our Gingham bundles
from RBD. 

How can you win? Be a great cheerleader! Leave comments with our ladies
drop us a line too.  Participate in future hops, all those who participate have 3 chances
of winning and all of them will share that our winnings are much more than they could 
ever imagine. We always add extras as our sponsors our very generous with us, so we just
pass it on to YOU. Be creative, it pays to be....ask those who have won!

Top 2 of the day

What can we say, we are just in love with GINGHAM, and PINK no less

  21. I'm late getting around the ring so I didn't realize you were tardy, LOL. Such neat versions of Tammy today---though a few were renamed. Mortimer, Dorothy now but definitely reflect the makers in doing so. One even looked like it was steroids but holds knitting! The pink and floral was definitely the most Tammy-like of all. Everyone does such a great job of these hops!
