DAY 4 of Hugs and Kisses with Shellys Buttons and More and P B textiles

to DAY 4 
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
inspires you
have you reaching for the stars
welllll join us for future hops…

( Flags on a stick still has a couple spots) 


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 ….

I supplied a calendar for you to all follow along…

  2. Oooh, I had some tears at one post, so beautiful and full of LOVE!!! Have a lovely day, Mdm Samm :-))

  3. Yep... tears for me too... Today's contributions were fabulous!

  4. Where is everyone today? President's Day in the US seems to have everyone sleeping in! Well, I just had to go see what everyone had made and I loved that one of our hoppers was bold enough to tell about her trip ups. After reading about your creative people traits I thought 'she certainly is creative!' But breaking an elbow has to have been the worst! Isn't that where the funny bone is? Well I am sure it ain't funny! All of the hoppers did a great job as usual, but those 3 small wallhangings brought a tear to my eye...

  5. Gotta say, everytime I see those VeraCruz fabrics, I am SOOO tempted. I have had to put myself on fabric buying restriction but oooh...Veracruz is very tempting!

  6. What a beautiful bunch of cute stuff today....the Hershey Quilt and Mary's table topper are sew cute, they look great together !
