Enter If U Dare Blog Hop Starts Now…

Enter If You Dare Blog Hop

Enter If U Dare starts today and it’s that time of the season we all look forward to. Besides Christmas, retailers will tell you that Halloween has become the second most popular holiday in the USA. I actually agree, no other holiday I know of, offers so many different things to buy for it other than Christmas. 

I love Halloween simply because it takes me back to those fun days of Trick or Treating but over time, it worries me to some degree because you never going to know what’s going to happen at your neighbors home. So please, if you have children go with them when they are Trick or Treating, don’t stop at houses that are not lighted and go get that candy tested if you have that ability.

This blog hop offers a free pattern per day at this blog. Giveaways at each of the blogs and fun seeing what other bloggers have been up to for there featured projects. Some of the bloggers even took on my bonus patterns, it’s going to be great fun to see what they have been up to.

If U Dare To Enter, Today’s Featured Bloggers Are:

Just Let Me Quilt
Quilt Doodles
Tea Time Creations

Wooly Block 2017This year’s Wooly Block Adventure brought to you by the same people who bring you the Row By Row Experience, has great new rules and opportunities for online users and I personally couldn’t be more thrilled about it.

You can now download patterns, so be sure you check this page daily or the Facebook Wooly Block page.

The downloads featured are limited it looks like for two days, then Wooly Block will feature 2-4 new shops in the event.

Click the shop’s links to buy the kits. Some of the shops have their pdf download on their sites, so you will have to visit and READ to download. Some shops may ask you to email them to get the free pattern. (I feel sorry for them already. Half Moon Handwerks asks you to email them, I already received my pattern from them, so they are keeping up at least. I wrote at 11:21 am and received it at 1:46 pm.

If you’d like to see pictures of all or most of the shops participating, you can view them here on Facebook. You can see all the pictures for the current event at the top until you many of this year’s logos. then it will start with last years winter event 2016-2017 logos.

On The 12 Day of Christmas Caroling Final Thoughts, and Halloween Sayings 08 Release…

Christmas Caroling Row Along

And last but not least, the final winners for the Christmas Caroling Row Along… Congratulations to everyone.

But let me just say, we can’t do this without you. By visiting our blogs, reading our posts, downloading or purchasing our patterns, even creating something from us, you compliment us whether we ever get to see your creation or not. It’s very humbling and it is the biggest reason why I know I am still blogging away.

To the sponsors, a HUGE Thank you… your generosity and kindness helps bring visitors to our blogs and lets people know more about your products.

To the participating bloggers, you all give me a lot of credit for bringing this event altogether and I truly thank you for thinking of me. I honestly don’t think it takes that much time to do this and I love doing it in the first place. However, knowing the sheer amount of work involved in just deciding to participate, racking your mind for an idea to do, playing with shapes until you find just what you want, and creating the pattern, and then giving it away freely is a lot to ask of anyone, let alone having to put up with my rants, when things go wrong. You are all an amazing group of women and I am honored and humbled to be in the presence of your talent and creativity.  To me, you are the heart of this event, without you, no way this happens, so thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for participating in this event with me.

Hall Saying 08

In this post I will also release Halloween Saying’s 08 – Pumpkin Carving…

Show And Tell Day Is Here Today For The Christmas Caroling Row Along…

Christmas Caroling Row AlongJust like those of you who visit today I to am excited to see what’s been up with the other bloggers and designers who put some of the rows together this summer.

Part of the requirement to participate in the row along each year is that designers must turn in their designed pattern drafts by a specific date in early June… This allows the patterns to be passed among the other participating designers and those wanting to create something for this day in the event can do so. That’s how the Show and Tell day came about for the row along.

For me, I had planned to finish my tutorial, but I keep forgetting that I can’t lift anything, or use my left hand well. Its funny how when we are injured, we still go about trying to do things we think we can do and then realize, you really are limited. When I had my surgery Friday, I came home with oxygen because my breathing was not at the right numbers after the surgery, and my left arm felt literally like it wasn’t there due to something they put in me that they call a block. What it does it make you feel like that part of the body isn’t here for about 24-30 hours after the surgery. I had to stay on the oxygen thru the weekend, severely limiting what I could get done. Suffice it to say, all my plans for Saturday and Sunday were shot by sitting on the couch all weekend. So I will post the tutorial later this week.

On the 10th Day of Christmas at the Christmas Caroling Row Along…

Christmas Caroling Row AlongThank you to everyone who has wished me well with my wrist. Some of you know I will have to have surgery, which is scheduled for tomorrow. I have no idea how I am going to do without coffee tomorrow morning, but in order to have surgery, I can’t eat or drink anytime past midnight… :/

Today is the last day for patterns from bloggers, and you do have one week to finish getting them downloaded before this event ends. Next Tuesday is Show and Tell day and this will give you an idea of different ideas you can do with your rows. I can’t finish my project, but what I will do instead is offer a tutorial on tricks and tips when using buttons, charms and making little things to hang on your projects… It’s a cool lesson I think you will enjoy.

I do not want to write a 2nd post today just for my second row, so I am going to condense it into this post. You will find my row and download inside this post with the giveaways.
