A special reminder to think of our Fallen HEROS
today Remembrance DAY!
How very special they are to so  many of us! 

  Welcome day 4 of another pretty special HOP...Why so special?...Welllll- we all like BOYS, of all ages, we love to cheer for others, we love to stretch our creativity...These hops do just that…All those who will be participation in our JUST FOR BOYS hop, love boys too. I am so excited to see what they will come up with.

What to expect…..WE are here to challenge our very creative friends to  THINK Boys!-anything and everything BOYS, tall, small, young, old...BOYS. This HOP is exclusively for those who have some BOY things in mind... quilts, nap sacks, sleeping bags, pillows...you name it if it looks like a BOY of any age would like it, we want to see it and YOU!

Recently I made something for a YOUNG Man  (BOY) in my life. This was my theme ( Man of Steel)  and all of my attention was focused on this fabric line from Camelot Fabrics and who happens to be our sponsor for this hop as well. You will have to wait and see the completed quilt and photos, I am tickled BLUE with it...( pink is for girls)  And a big thanks to Mary who managed to find this exquisite model... I am soooo into Man of Steel now. There is a wonderful story about Kal-El that will certainly bring a smile to your lips...will share on my day of our Boy Hop!

And who will be leading us into BOY LAND.....?
AMY is our cheerleader for this hop from Sew Incredibly Crazy  ( schedule is here and on side bar)
 and crazy she is not..but she is creative, funny, committed over the top CHEERLEADER. So we think she is young enough at heart to tackle this hop...

So who will be here today to have you celebrating all the BOYS, MEN in our lives…? Well these pretty amazing ladies….
Be sure to cheer them on, they do this for YOU! 


 Totally boy through and through, love the zipper on the side too..
This lady made a coordinating quilt ..you have to check out...


Sometimes simple pieces have the most impact….this TREK piece
speaks volumes for anyone who has Trekies in their lives..

  5. Always fun hopping around in the morning, many great ideas.

  6. This was a hopping good Monday!

  7. Being a Trekkie myself, I HAD to agree with your top two today....:) Gotta beam myself to work now...

  8. I am supposed to be sewing and seem to have gotten caught up in hopping instead...("i'll just see who got top honors " "ooh gotta check hers out" And now i've been to all, the timer beeped at me a long time ago and I am out of coffee! Now that I am inspired -back to the machine I go!

  9. Hopping around is a great way to spend the morning while enjoying a cuppa!

  10. Boy/man creations can be lots of fun too. Oh btw I guess I didn't see the info about Kona solid fabric blog hop info when I had commented earlier about that. I suppose there was so much to read I just didn't see it, lol. Maybe you need to make some of the info in large bold print for those of us who have trouble seeing it all? Okay I'm having another birthday on Wednesday and maybe I'm just getting older, *sigh*.

  11. I love that star trek, what a fun idea! pbstrand@msn.com

  12. Thanks for the wall of fame, my youngest went to the city today with his new bag, proud like a roaster.... :-))

  13. LOL, I had to wait to go hopping today as I had an eye doc appt this morning and my eyes are STILL a bit dilated. I need to do the hand work parts on my own entry and have to wait or make a real mess of it! Cool choices today.

  14. Another great day for Boys!!

  15. A special day of remembrance for all those who fought and gave their all for our freedoms. Sew loving this "For the Boys" hop. Truly great projects. Thank you very much.

  16. Wonderful picks and such a great variety shown today! Everyday a new and wonderful idea.

  17. I have really enjoyed the blog hop -- I have never done one before. The boy stuff is fabulous! I have a son and two grandsons, so I am always in need of fresh ideas. And beyond the boy stuff -- wow! -- I found a couple of blogs to follow, and a quilt-along; I've never done a quilt-along either. I pulled all the fabrics from my stash tonight, and I'm eagerly awaiting the instructions! Thanks to the blog-hop organizers and contributors -- and sponsors, too!

  18. Great idea! My guys would love most of these!

  19. It's so nice to see projects for boys! Thanks for organizing a great blog hop.

  20. I am so hoppin far behind I will never catch up but wonderful projects all along the way.
