Blog Hop Party

I'm joining today with many other bloggers in a giveaway blog hop. Thanks to Michelle for organizing it, and to see the other blogs you can go here!

Here are some of the things that I've been up to lately:
Clockwise from upper left: map quilt, Adding up nicely, Sarah's quilt, Grandma's quilt,
Interlocked Hearts, Duvet, in-process HSTs.

And on to the giveaway...I have a charm pack of Kona dark solids to give away.  Ahh.  I love solids.
There are two ways to enter.  1) Leave a comment.  Any comment will do, but if you would like a topic how about the color that you find yourself working with the least. 2) Follow, or become a follower, of my blog.  Please leave a second comment.  I will choose the winner on the 15th of March.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy the hop!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Orange is my least favorite-was a PSA stew back in the late 60's and had to wear hot orange petit pants with ruffles along with orange shoes, hat and lipstick. Also, because of the time we had an Armstong orange plaid linoleum installed in our new house-and then, if that wasn't enough orange I worked for a school whose colors were "vibrant orange and sparkling white". Thanks for the opportunity:) and I am now following you as well.

    ReplyDelete
