My Stop on the Dots on Dots Hop
Welcome to day 4 of the Dots on Dots Blog Hop
Today is an extra special day since it is also my 4th wedding Anniversary.
I would like to say thank you to Madame Samm for creating this hop and to Corrie for being our dotty cheerleader.
I know I say this every hop, but I really do enjoy taking part. I love the push to make something, the inspiration that flows from blog to blog each day and of course the cheering on. No matter what kind of day I am having getting an inbox full of such kind comments does wonders to one`s soul!
I will admit to hitting a bit of a road block when it came to this hop. I had lots of dot fabric, but I couldn’t think of a thing to make. This resulted in a lot of time just sitting in my craft room and thinking....I am sure some of you could see the smoke coming from Saskatchewan...ya that was me...lol
Finally I decided to make a block for my SewHappyGeek QAL quilt. Now the QAL ended almost 6 months ago and I am still dawdling behind. Most of the fabric I am using for the quilt has....well you guessed it DOTS so it only seemed right to make a few blocks and kill 2 birds with one stone!
This one is called peek a boo. All the fabric has dots except for the black. Sometimes tone on tone dots don’t work...LOL
The 2nd block I made I am going to use in the same quilt but it was not part of the QAL. I decided to skip the paper piecing block and just make something else I had never tried before. What I ended up with was a framed rail fence. I really like this block.
I like to try and make at least one block that I can say is just for me during each blog hop. Therefore, the final block I made was from my head . I wanted to make something to remind me that even though life can get dark at times the sun is always shining. I am going to turn this into a wall hanging for my craft room.
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my dotty creations. I hope you all have a lovely time on your stop.
