Happy Hopping!

Don’t you just LOVE Blogging and this time of year!!  SEW much to do!!  This week there will be lots of Hopping going on as we have THREE BLOG HOPS to attend….

Lots to do, lots to see, lots to make and lots to WIN!!

Let’s talk about the First Blog Hop sponsored by Sew We Quilt and Jillily from Jillily Studio.  Jillily designed the CUTEST Holiday Lane Pillow EVER…and bloggers from around the world have taken up the challenge!  They have made their own versions of Holiday Lane and now it’s time for us to drop in on them, see their creations and maybe get a little somethin’ somethin’ in return…maybe a free pattern, a chance to win a give away or the chance to find your kindred spirit!  It’s always nice to meet ‘like minded’ quilters…if you know what I mean!  Geeze almost sounds like a dating served…haha
