We have a lovely collection of
Ladies who have sooo much HEART
as well as amazing talent…

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…

They could do one, two or  three ( of the above patterns)   and create, design

Hello Madame Samm....Blogger wouldn't let me load not one single photo...so I am sending people over to my Facebook page...I tried for over 6 hours tonight...and nothing...I tried everything including cutting and pasting my photos...but it just wouldn't save them or load them...or yesterday's post either.
