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...

Bugs Bugs Bugs

Oh they had this thing for bugs
I was constantly looking for jugs
With promise they were to keep them for the night
or succumb to many frights

As the bugs would somehow find a way
to stick around  another day
It was always I who
was ready to cry….

So I made up a song
that we all sang along
And to this day
I have never forgot to say
it's the memories that keep my heart smiling!

Bugs bugs bugs 
if I had them all in jugs
I would dig dig dig
till a big hole was dug
and that would be they end
 of our bug song

Their MUMM


  1. Totally enjoyed today!! Looking forward to seeing tomorrow and sharing my project too. Your poem fits our house completely. I have all kinds of containers for bugs. Thank goodness there haven't been many that have made it in the house.

  2. I'm getting so many ideas! :)

  3. Loved your picks for todays top 3... I have been having a little trouble getting to the web page so I did a search for Madame Samm and found you via Pellon! I am not surprised that they asked to interview you... It was interesting reading the interview and seeing your projects there as well. You are a real inspiration! Thanks!

  4. Great projects today!
    My little buys loved bugs, too. I knew my middle son needed a pet when he came in the house with a caterpillar and said it was his new pet. He was naming it "Fuzzy".

  5. Such fun stuff! I love the slippers! pbstrand@msn.com

  6. Great projects today. Love that plus quilt!

  7. Some wonderful ideas to make for the boys for the holidays.

  8. Excellent projects "For the Boys". Fun fabrics and creative sewing make great gifts. Happy Hopping...

  9. What a great hop!! I want to apologize for the thoughtless anonymous comment left on the blog this morning. I hope it doesn't happen again.
    We have the best hops!!! Thank you Samm

  10. I agree---the other 5 participants could have just as easily been featured too. I am loving the Cobblestone Path quilt --quite eye catching, isn't it?

  11. Another fun hop morning, thank you! I look forward to your poems each morning almost as much as all the creations!

  12. The ideas have been sew wonderful, everyone a winner!

  13. I remember capturing bugs as a kid. I would ask my mom for a jar with a lid. She would punch holes in the top so the bugs could breathe. I have been enjoying your poems as much as the projects.

  14. Have been enjoying the hop! Great manly quilts out there and so many things for inspiration!

  15. I am late getting here today... Me and hubby went to the coast for overnight and to enjoy today... Just got home... left all laptops at home so it was just he and I.

    Just finished hopping around and leaving some comment love. Great projects again today.

    Now I need to go ice a knee and ankle.. I fell at the beach! bummer...

  16. Pretty sure it says somewhere,if you have boys,bugs are mandatory! In jars,jugs,pockets... Loved all the bloggers entries again today,so glad I did not have to pick just one.

  17. Lots of lucky boys and men having great things made for them.

  18. Great hop! I'm honored to be included.

  19. All by favorites today. Just love that camo though!

  20. What a sweet bug song. Great projects today, for sure. Love the camo.

  21. I can't believe my simple camo pillowcases made the Wall of Fame!!! But so pleased...and Thank You!! My boys are going to Love their pillows as I will eventually monogram them with my new toy aka...embroidery machine. The small pillow is to ease the pain for a hurting back when #1 Husband relaxes in his "Chair". As always, you are such a dear...
    Blessings...IHCP *wink*
