Turkey Trot Blog Hop

 Well I must say the Turkey Trotted right along without me this morning! I had full intention of having this out at 6 am for all you Eastern Time early risers! Alas, Life happens and sometimes without us.

Look at a couple of the gorgeous vintage shop finds. I don't always make a purchase because having the photo is much more valuable and doesn't clutter up my space. 

Everything painted shabby white. How gorgeous Again!?

We surely all should count each and every blessing we've received, right down to the privilege of writing each word we share with each other. You all are one of my blessings, and I thank you for sharing part of your day with me! 


Looking at this cute little recipe book. I'm not quite sure rooster is what I'd be cooking right now...How 'bout some turkey you all!


And for my sweet little project! I made this fluffy Soft Turkey hat for my little Grand. I love her so much!

A design from Designs by Juju


It is applique/embroidery mix and one of my favorite techniques. The wash away stabilizer is used to keep the stitching from sinking into the loft. The hat pattern can be found at Crafty Gemini on YouTube
and you can visit Vanessa's blog HERE. The pattern is Generously FREE!
Isn't this going to be just the cutest little hat on a wee one!?
Stay blessed everyone! And go visit all of our friends participating in the Turkey Trot this week hosted by Joan of Moosestash Quilting!

Monster Mash Blog Hop

 Welcome Back to Monster Mash Blog Hop Day 2!

Come join us for some spooky fun, monsters included! Here's what I stitched up! Two sweet little kitchen voodoos. Any thing to oversee the cooking to whip up some delicious baking and cooking!

I  normally throw all the snips and string clippings into a small container and used them up to stuff the dollies. It gives them a bit more stiffness but that isn't something that really bothers me as they are just for looking at. 

My husband and I also did a little vintage shop hop. And look at some of these cuties!
                                   The cat basket HAD to come home with me! And look at how adorable a collection of fabrics rolls looks in it just waiting for me to dive into them!



And to join in the latest craze, I had a ghostie photo shoot with my favorite person, my sister. We had a blast! You all should do this just because it brings all the sillies out!


Have a Happy Monster Mash Week You All! It is a gorgeous time of year! And don't forget to go see all the participants in the Hop this week!

It's A Dog's Life




Lots  of sharing, showing off our beautiful little dogs (and cats) and enjoying each other's company! This happens when Joan of Moosestash Quilting and Carol of Just Let Me Quilt challenge us to stitch up something for Sew It - Show It!

September's challenge is hosted by Carol - This month Carol prompted "It's A Dog's Life" - How true is that? We all love our little furry friends and they pretty much boss us around. (The alternative challenge was to think vintage - I'm thinking Dick, Jane & Spot. I taught my baby brother to read with those books!

 

This month, I found a cute embroidery pattern and stitched it onto a coaster to gift to a sweet friend my husband and I just met. They have a new dog too! Sugar-bear... The stitch out is in honor of their newest family member.

You can find the design at Embroidery Designs.com

Please stop by all the other participants to see what they've created to share with us! An aside note, my Lil' Apple Jack loves wearing her sweaters. She acts like we've treated her extra special when she wears one. It was a little cooler when we left for vacation from Florida to West Viriginia. Poor little gal was shivering! Problem solved!

Sew It - Show It Challenge Coming Up!

 


Just a lot of sharing and enjoying each other's company! This is happening every month with Joan of Moosestash Quilting and Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. They share a challenge for anyone that wishes to join and we in turn grab up the challenge and stitch something up for share and tell!

We provide inspiration, encouragement and friendship. Sometimes there are tutorials and patterns provided. Sometimes there are just witty and genius ideas shared.

This month Carol challenged/ and is hosting "It's A Dog's Life" - sew/stitch a project that is dog related. We can all relate! So many of us just simply cannot go any where without our little furry. (There is an alternative to use something / do something vintage...I'm thinking Dick, Jane & Spot. Who remembers reading those learning sources?)

Here's a sneak peak of Apple Jack - Fully Known as Lil' Emily Apple Jack! Tune in to see her all grown up!

Wishing you all will join me as well as all my quilty friends next week. See this Fabulous Line-Up!
