Red~White~Blue Blog Hop & Give Away

Good Morning Friends,
   I so apologize for being late!  Yesterday was a Oral Surgery Day, need I explain more?

First off Thank~You soooo much Madame Samm and Jane for the superb joint effort in putting together this Beautiful Adventure!!

After last Summer's Wantobe a Quilter Campaign, which I was totally addicted to!  This is my first attempt ever at Quilting~

My thoughts were I could do straight lines, a Flag would work.  We do joint ventures around here too sometimes so my Hubby came up with this for me.

Early in the Spring I fell in love with Prairie Paisley II, so now I had a good reason to order a Charm Pack for my piece.  Cutting was easy, sewing was easy and went quite quickly.  I do love to sew!
Then it was onto embroidering 50 Stars, now don't look to close my embroidery needs as much practice as my quilting!

I am leaving this as is for my finished piece, it is going into a Frame that we Ordered.  Which I can't wait to put this all together and will eventually post the finished Product.  Remember from the Ghastlie Blog Hop that I have a daughter and her family that live in China?  Well Lauren and her hubby just recently had a Wedding Anniversary.  Every year for their Anniversary they get a Handmade gift from us.  Not necessarily made by us, but the gift always reflects their life in the States.  So for this year's Gift I think this just might be a good one, don't you?

Now for the Give Away, I am giving away a Strand of Red~White~Blue Candylights Lightstrand for you to use in all the future Patriotic Holidays.   Just leave me a comment, and I will use the Random Generator on the evening of the 16th Blog Hop.  The winner will be posted the following morning!

Please stop by the rest of my Quilting Friends today to see their lovely Red~White~Blue Pieces,

Have a wonderful day Friends and Thanks for stopping by!!

Huggs, Nancy
