Welcome to my day on the Say What? Blog Hop. Thanks to Joan at Moosestash Quilting for hosting this fun hop!
I must apologize first of all that my post is late going up. Our internet went out Wednesday morning and is still out, thanks, I believe, to the people burying cable in front of our house. When I left yesterday morning for Sew Day with Friends, there were lots of people and equipment at our drive way. Last week, there had been people from utilities out flagging where their lines were buried. DH called me at 11:30 and said we had no internet or cable. So I called the company as my phone is attached to the account and their robot computer said there was no outage in my area. Oh I begged to differ and finally got through to a person. As an aside, modern technology is wonderful, but I REALLY miss being able to talk directly with a person before I get so frustrated I want to scream at said person! OK, rant over! This morning we are borrowing one of our daughter’s MIFIs. The grands will not be happy on their way to school but they will survive! SEW, on with my project!
When I saw the directive for this hop, I knew I already had the perfect project for it! I turned a teenager in the late 60s (telling my age here! LOL) and I LOVED bell bottom pants and tie-dyed T-shirts. Tie-dyed to me says color…and I love color! I think that’s why I love quilting so much – so many beautiful, colorful fabrics to play with! This little quilt is well…me!
I think my love of color and patterns in fabrics is the reason I love working with batiks so much…besides their great quality. The batik I used in this quilt is from my stash and I have no idea how long I’ve had it!
Another Say What saying that definitely rings true at our house is in this mug rug I made. It’s completely made in the embroidery hoop and is in my shop if you are interested.
We drink a LOT of coffee throughout the day, so this is perfect for us!
Again, I apologize for the lateness of this post. I hope you enjoyed my little contribution to this blog hop and you will visit my fellow “hoppers” and see what they have to say!! Today is the last day, but Joan has done a recap each day and you can see them on the Moosestash Quilting blog. Here is today’s schedule! Please visit and leave them a sweet comment! It really encourages us to read your comments!
I hope you all have a great day. Until next time…
