I love to blog hop. That’s mornings with my cuppa and Blogland. Besides getting loads of inspirations, tutorials and freebies, sometimes I end up taking part in giveaways .
Lately, I seem to be on a winning streak!
In early October, I won a Beaded Wool Gems Kits from Kelly Jackson. Within a week, I received the Kit!
In early November, I hopped into Shawna’s lovely blog and hopped away with this yummylicious Layer Cake!
Remember when I wrote about Barbara Gaddy and her family? Did you hurry along to get to know this lovely family! I did and see what I won!
Jeanette gave me not one but two patterns! A block of the month pattern collection from Thimbleberries called "Build a Village Block by Block" and ‘Pot and Pots of Flowers’ .
Love and love them!
I am talking about Barb’s family. Barbara Gaddy of BEJEWELED QUILTS BY BARB is having giveaways..two of them!
Second is Barb’s Veterans Day Giveaway. Now hurry along to get to know this lovely family!
I was experimenting with Linky. I found out that you can add a link to your Flickr photo.
I will show you how I added my Hexie Caddy photo from Flick to my Hexie Caddy parade in my blog.
1. First, choose the photo .
2. See the address I circled at the address bar? Right click to ‘Copy’.
3. Go to the bottom of the Hexie Caddy Tutorial post.
4. Click on the “Click here to enter’.
5. Right click in the ‘Link it to’ box, and paste the address you copied in step #2.
6. Add your caption or title.
7. Click on ‘ From Web’.
8. Select your image, crop , click ‘Ok’ and you should be able to see your thumbnail in my Hexie Caddy Parade !
So if you do not have a blog, but you have Flickr and have made a Hexie Caddy Pincushion, join in the Parade!

Then at about the same time, I started stitching GIFTS OF GRACE by Val Laird.
And because I always like to have my hands in many projects at the same time,
( that sure explain my many UFOs!)
Sew, I Easily Charmed the Graceful blocks of Gifts to make this….
Easily Charmed Graceful Gifts Quilted Table Topper!!!
Another down …and many more to go !!!
Edit : The Gifts of Grace BOM will be available only till December 2010. So hurry over to get all the BOMs !
to decide on a pattern for a quilt I’m planning to make for my DH. I have not finished hand stitching the binding of the table topper I’m making with my Gifts of Grace block. But I’m deciding on the pattern for my next project. The problem is, there are so many inspirations out there in Blogland! ….and I want to make ALL OF THEM !!!
Finally, I finished stitching all the block from Gifts of Grace by Val Laird.
I have stitched them into blocks to make another table topper.
My daughter’s reaction was “ why do you need so many!!!”
Well, I cannot have enough of them!
Almost finished the binding….hand stitching takes time
