Here in Minnesota, fall is just wrapping up. I can’t believe it’s over already . . . it seems the older I get, the faster it flies by. I’m in my thirties now, so by the time I’m fifty, how fast will it fly by then? More importantly, can anybody tell me why this happens?
While you ponder that, I have some news that may brighten your day – another blog hop!!! This past summer I participated in the Minnesota Blog Hop, organized by Gudrun Erla of GE Designs. We had lots of fun and our readers really enjoyed it. Gudrun has gotten another group of bloggers together for the Cross Country Christmas Blog Hop. Half of the designers are from Minnesota, and the other half from around the country. So, if you didn’t get to go on a vacation this year, here is your chance to visit several quilters around the country for a mini vacation.
Here is the list of participating designers and the day they will be featured:
November 9th: Gudrun from GE Designs
Nov 10th: Sandy from Pieces from my Heart
Nov 11th: Terry from Atkinson Designs
Nov 12th: Pat from Pat Sloan and Co
Nov 13th: ME!
Nov 14th: Pam from Pam Kitty Morning
Nov 15th: Kari from New Leaf Stitches
Nov 16th: Terri from Whimsicals
Nov 17th: Sherri from This and That Pattern Co
Nov 18th: Carrie from Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co
Nov 19th: Roseann from Rosebud’s Cottage
Nov 20th: Linda Lum DeBono
Each day a designer will be sharing a small christmas project for you to make, just in time for the holidays. In addition to a free pattern, many designers will also be sharing a prize with their readers that day. We will also have prizes for a few winners that comment on each blog on the day they are featuring their free pattern. Each day will have a topic that we will share about, such as a favorite christmas gift or recipe. It will be lots of fun for everyone, so spread the word!
To kick off the blog hop, we will be having a contest! Stop by each of the blogs this Wednesday to participate. We will all be posting a baby picture of another designer. You will have until Saturday to guess which picture goes with which designer!
