It’s My Day on The Blog Hop
Firstly thanks to Marlene at Stitchin’ By The Lake for being our Cheerleader on this hop (and answering my emails!) and to Madame Samm as always.
Secondly an apology to the lovely Amy Bradley who provided the pattern for this Hop. This is only the second time I have done applique work and as you may see from my little quilt, some of it didn’t go too well. Especially as I had not used the applique feature on my Janome before!!!!
Anyway here it is :
As with all the other hops I have taken part in, I have tried to use fabrics from my stash and also my scraps and as I have not done much applique decided to stick to Amy’s pattern. The material I chose for the background was quite thin, so when I began to put it together the dress moved!!!! This is why it looks on an angle!!!!
So I am really on the bias!!!! I started on the words and I think I should have started on the picture first, as that went well. I had great fun and having seen what some of the other ladies have produced they are amazing. These are the ladies who are hosting with me today, so hop on over and leave a comment.

I would also like to welcome you to the new home of my Blog. I had to move because of Google so set up on WordPress. Everything is the same just a different home. It has been fun getting everything set up, you know like when you move home!!!

Now I know that quite a few of you who blog hop regularly will be followers on my old blog, but no matter how I tried I could not transfer my followers, so please follow again on here, I will also get DH to try and get the names of my followers to be shown on the Blog!!!!!
