3. Count them 3. 3 blog Hops coming your way

There is a 2 letter word, that I swear is not in my vocabulary. Maybe I need to be a 2 year old again to learn it. But, there is a 3 letter word that seems to come out of my mouth a lot. Have you guessed them?   The 2 letter word is "NO". The 3 letter word? You guessed it "YES".

In all actuality, sometimes I do say no.  I like to stay busy and I like to learn new things. In learning new things, I am participating in 3 fun upcoming blog Hops. 

The first one starts on Monday September 4th, and ends on the 29th. It is an Island Batik hop. Each Ambassador was sent  a box of fabric in February. 1 bundle had to be kept secret until now. There are lots of fun prizes to be given away.
You can follow all the ambassadors by going to Island Batiks blog at and clicking on "blog"

My day to share mine is September  12th. I will be sharing a fun quilt I am making.  This is just a sneak peek of what I am doing.

There is another one that starts the same day. My friend Dorie Hruska of has written a fun new book called Making Connections, which is about free motion quilting.

Remember, I said I like to learn, right?  I am lucky to have friends who write these books so we can all learn.  The complete schedule for this hop can be found at or at Each stop on the hop will be giving away a copy of the book. For U.S. residents you get a hard copy of the book and international residents get an ebooknow. My day to share about this book is September 14th. And I just might be giving an additional 1 or 2 items away.

The last one starts Tuesday, September 5th, answer posts will be Tuesdays and Thursdays and goes into October. Oh my word, there are tons of fun prizes. This one is a Christmas Carol row along.

 Each of the designers had to design a row based on a Christmas Carolist. I will be posting my row on October 3rd. You can go to my frieND Marian's blog at for a schedule, beginning Tuesday, September 5th.  You definitely want to visit each blog, as each person will be giving a free pattern and each of us will have prizes to give away.

I just wanted to make sure my readers and followers knew about these blog Hops. I love doing them.

As always,  I love your comments. I read them al, and try to respond as quickly as I can. So, enjoy your day, and it is time for me to get back to my sewing, so I can have projects ready to share. So tata for now.
