It's All About Me, and it's My Turn!

I want to say thanks to Mdm Samn for coming up with such a fun and creative hop, and also to the very best cheerleader ever, Marlene.  Thanks Marlene for being so kind, patient, and always emailing with answers and all the details we needed in such a timely manner.

Of course thanks to Amy Bradley for giving us such a humorous and delightful pattern to play with.

Too late, I realized I did not have to follow the pattern so exactly...I have so enjoyed visiting all the hoppers to date and seeing what they did-so many creative and wonderful different versions.  
I am working out of my stash this year, and the only thing I truly had to buy was the steam a seam stuff.  I had great stripes to chose from and my favorite color purple worked perfectly.
I also had matching purple thread in my stash, so quilting down the lines was easy.

I really am not an applique person, so this really pushed my comfort zone way out.  
Please be sure to go visit all the other hoppers for today on the list below!

Marathon Quilter-you are already here!

ps...sorry, just figured out how to turn OFF the word verification! apparently it was a default setting I had not noticed...
Thanks for stopping by!  Cher

It's All About Me...blog hop happening

I am a day late..but...I think being gone for a long weekend threw off my entire sense of what day /date it was..especially having to "help" my sweetie pack and get to the airport at o'dark hundred Tuesday am.
So..here is the entire schedule, in case, like me, you are a day behind!

photos of knitting and quilting

Yes! Finally made time to take some photos (inside, weather is not dry enough for outside) and can share more than words for this post.  I finished knitting my first hat today and it fits perfectly and I love it!  Check one photo shared here.  And, I have another skein of similar yarn for a second hat for my sweetie too.

Then, I mentioned I finished my string quilt right before the end of January.  So..here it is.

I am working hard on my applique for the It's All About Me blog hop coming very soon this month.

It is coming along very well...I am almost ready to do the stitching down part.  Lots of learning curve moments with this..reminding me why I am not a fan of applique..yet again.

Grammies are waiting...off to spend some quality time with the love of my life..
