My day on the Think Christmas Blog hop



Hello and welcome to my stop on the Think Christmas Blog hop!! There has been so much inspiring work and we are only on day two. I hope you enjoy your time stopping by my blog today and I hope you continue on with us for the next 5 days!

Thank you to Lesley and Madame Samm for putting this hop together. I really do enjoy taking part, being inspired, cheering for fellow blogger and being cheered on by others.

Okay you came here to see blocks.............so here they are!!!!

I saw this first block last year and pined it so I could make it this year. However, the web site it was on was taken down. I didn’t let that stop me though as I stared at the picture until I could figure out how to make it...luckily that didn’t take too long. This is my version of “Ryan’s Holiday Ribbon Block”

My second block is the 1st block I ever made. I have a whole UFO of this log cabin and still had scraps laying around so I figured why not whip another one up for this hop! 

My third block is a little Christmas tree inspired from “Christmas at Bear’s Paw Ranch by Eleanor Burns and Staff” I am planning  on making another one and then adding the two together with pinwheels to make a table runner. 

And last but not least my block. This block is from the “Christmas at Bear’s Paw Ranch by Eleanor Burns and Staff.” It is part of a wall hanging. This was my second attempt at making flying geese. I think I am going to have to buy a flying geese ruler so make the rest of this project. 

I hope you enjoying my blocks. I enjoyed having you stop by! Now make sure you check out the other amazing stops on day 2!!
