Blog Hop Give Aways......Starts Today


It starts today. Lots of give aways. Isn't it exciting. Just head over to the Quilting Gallery to find out who is parpicipating. This is my first time joining but I played along some last year. 

Since spring is around the corner I thought some nice spring colours would be a nice give away. There is 3 1/4 meters and the back piece is a little over 1/2 meter. It is a piece left over from a project I was working on but still there will be lots of  enjoyment out of it.


There is also a couple of little project patterns that I found that would be fun and quick to work up. You don't have to be a follower to play but just make sure I can reach you. I hope you will join following me to see what I have been working on. I have enjoyed this blog so much this year and have learned so much. It is now a part of my day. Have a great day and have fun joining in everyone's give aways.

    1. When I had cancer nine years and made it through the treatments we decided to travel but before that we were going to wait until we retired. I am glad we made that choice as we have had a lot of fun over the years. We just got back from a Southern cruise and spent a week in Pureto Rico. We had a great time. We took our oldest grand daughter last year with us. She had a blast. Glad you could stop by.
