to DAY 2
to  all those who are new to our hops
and those who just can't get enough of us
anymore than we can get of them…

If ever you were looking for 
a gathering of individuals who will
challenge you

We have a lovely collection of
Ladies who have sooo much HEART
as well as amazing talent…
and all of them challenge me almost every day…
They really are my inspiration behind everything I CREATE!

This hop is about PAPER PIECING.
It is soooo addicting, once you master it
welllllll it is hard to stop…
Just wait and see..

Everyone had 3 patterns to work with
( Soma is one talented artist who can take any 
design and make it into the most beautiful and perfectly
accurate pattern. YOU just got to Cheer her for that…wink)
Ohhh I never ever take her for granted for one moment…
we are already talking about next years hop…xo

They could do one, two or  three ( of the above patterns)   and create, design
anything they like ….
