Thank YOU Designers!

Yes, we DO stitch up those much appreciated Blog Hop designs SEW generously donated by the various talented quilters out there!  Sometimes we even stitch up several and sometimes we go back a year or more and dig out those designs to finally stitch them up!!  My rule is, if you like it, PRINT IT... then you have it for future use!

Various Christmas Blog Hops have been happening for a long time...providing us with tons of patterns to stitch, gift or enjoy!  Here are two such examples...

This JOY banner was a last year design by Wooden Spools Blog and it is one of my favourites!

Another favourite was this FREE pattern put out by Granola Girl several years ago for one of the blog hops~LOVED this pattern!

So make sure you visit Buttermilk Basin's Blog Hop and Farmhouse Threads' Blog Hop...both Hops are now over but you can still download their designs!  Remember to PRINT them off ..and please take the time to THANK the designers!  These talented ladies put in a lot of thought, time and work to provide us with these wonderful FREE patterns!

It sounds stormy outside...rain is hitting the windows as I type this...I have to say that I LOVE that sound!  It makes me feel warm and cozy...a good day to stay inside and's a SEW DAY!  Crank up that Christmas Music..."Let it RAIN, Let it RAIN, Let it RAIN!"

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
