Long time. I know.

Hi Friends,

I know it's been a long time since I have blogged. I love running into you at events and shows. I wish I had a good excuse for not blogging but when asked about it I say "I don't know.  Life gets in the way sometimes." I enjoy reading blogs.   Yes.  I'm a bit of a "lurker".

My girlfriend Rhonda McCray of Farmhouse Threads approached me to be in her Christmas Mystery Blog Hop.  Now that's a way to get me blogging.  We are going to have lots of fun and there are wonderful designers involved. I feel privileged to be invited to design.

I want you to know that I am here. It's been so long since I blogged that I am having trouble getting my pictures to load.  Dang it all! I'm going to keep trying because our blog hop starts on Saturday Oct. 3rd and I don't want you to miss it!


Join us for Farmhouse Threads
Christmas Mystery Quilt Blog Hop!

For 10 weeks, beginning October 3rd we will share with you free patterns from some of our favorite designers to complete a Christmas Quilt just in time for Christmas. Each week one designer will post the pattern to make a Christmas block using wool appliqué and embroidery on cotton. Week 10 will include the instructions to put all of these blocks together with some fun borders to complete your Christmas quilt. Finishing kits will be available from Farmhouse Threads.

Make sure you sign up for each designer’s blog/website to receive the free patterns.

Please share the blog hop with your friends and have them follow along!
