#03 Hugs & Kisses Blog Hop



This is my 3rd Blog Hop and 2nd with Mdm Samm!! 
I want to thank her for allowing me the privilege, again, of participating.

Feb 12th


Lady Carol

Lady Sandy

Lady Cynthia

Lady Pat

Lady Jolie

Lady Susan

Here is the link to the complete list of participants!!

 I had all this lovely Valentine's fabric I bought last year on sale, so what better Blog Hop to get involved in. I had so much fun figuring out what to do with the paper piece patterns from Soma of Whims and Fancies too!! (There were 3 patterns total, I only used 2.)

Again, I know you don't have time to read a lot of words and just want to look at pretty pictures, but read to the end. Don't miss out, I've  rounded up 2 great prizes for you.



Feyza from ikaprint is donating 90 labels and if you've been reading my blog you will know that I love my labels!! Don't forget to use the discount code upstairshobbyroom (5% off) if you are looking for labels and decide to place an order.


And Jennie at Zipit is donating a $25.00 gift certificate!!
 Again don't forget to use upstairshobbyroom to save 15% on an order if you are looking for great zippers.

These are two places that I shop and love!
( I always have the discount codes and  links on the right side bar of my blog. The pictures are the links just click on them to go!)

OK, on with the picture show.....

 A Table Runner






Then I printed the pattern at 60% and made a pouch (of course using a zipper from Zipit), and 50% and made coasters/Tic Tac Toe game pieces (and the table topper game board of course!!)














And a treat/card holder!!

I made 2 blocks for this, folding the one a little over the halfway point and adding some fabric to the bottom to match raw edge. Then quilted both, layered them on top of each other and added the binding and ties.


You could make one for everyone's chair!! A mixture of X's and O's.

Same rules as last time. Prizes are open to everyone, just follow the instructions to enter below!!

I apologize for anyone who didn't get a reply last time around who maybe returning. Again there are a lot of comment coming in and it is hard to keep straight who I have replied to and who I haven't. (between phone, computer and blog) So this time around, unless you ask a question, I'm going to say to everyone right now....

Thank you so much for taking time to stop in and check out how I used the paper pieced pattern!! I really appreciate everyone's feed back and support (I read every comment!!) and I hope that I have inspired you to get creative!!
Happy Valentine's Day (a little early )

Ok so here is the give away!! I learned after the last Blog Hop it is a lot of work to try and randomly generate numbers, than count and not get lost through the comments....so I figured out Rafflecopter, I think!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
