Are you ready to hop?

Today begins the Fall into Fall blog hop. Be sure to click the scarecrow on my sidebar to see all the bloggers who are having giveaways. 

I feel that I have been really hopping this week...and by now I am exhausted but I have had so much fun. On Wednesday, I left the house at 6:15 a.m. and returned at 10:15 p.m. It was our guild shop hop in Lancaster, PA. I bought 22+ yards of fabric, a pattern, and some small notions and still spent under $100 (not counting dinner!). There are so many great shops there that have quality fabric at wonderful prices...some even gave us a special discount because we came by bus!

Thursday hubby and I took a little time in the afternoon to go to the casino. I'm not a big gambler but it is fun to play the penny slots. When I got home I saw that my GO cutter came...I was so tired but not too tired to play with it.

Today seven of us got together and played with a GO cutter and had a delicious lunch at our friend Joan's house.

Then I came home and played with my GO again. Maybe tomorrow I will post some pictures.
My giveaway is simple. You can win a selection of six fall fat quarters (sorry about the thread in the picture-just noticed it),a surprise pattern, and some other little goodies. All you need to do is become a follower and comment on at least one other of my posts between now and October 15th to have your name in the drawing.  I will draw at 5 p.m. EST on the 15th and notify the winner on Saturday.

Be sure to visit the other bloggers in the Giveaway.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hi Sweetie...
I am so enjoying the blog HOP, what fun it is. The nicest part is meeting new friends and learning about new crafts and seeing what so many others are doing. I love it.

I have so enjoyed visiting your blog, and seeing so many wonderful projects. I love your Christmas wall hanging that is almost done. How beautiful. I will have to share my Halloween one I finished and show the Thanksgiving and Christmas one I have yet to do. I always get them done in time.

I am Country Wings in Phoenix, your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well. I do so enjoy meeting new friends, and I love to share.

Have a gorgeous Saturday sweet friend. Country hugs, Sherry

Kathy H said...

I have just become a follower but you have no follower button on your blog (that I could find) so Iwent to the dashboard.

I saw the snowman wall hanging you did and I love that you used your stash to make it. I try to do that but i have such an assortment that not all my fabric goes together. I am wanting to make some scrappy quilts that will use it up. Thanks for the chance to win in your giveaway.
