Blog Hop Fun!

I would like to share a little about a couple of blog hops I will be participating in over the next few weeks. I hope you will join in!

I had been staring longingly at the Amy Butler Weekender Pattern for weeks, so when Lori of Lori H. Designs & Heidi of Fabric Mutt asked me to be part of their Long Weekend Blog Hop I knew it was meant to be. I absolutely had to have that bag in my collection!

I started cutting my fabric & interfacing yesterday and WOW. There are a lot of pieces! I am excited (and slightly nervous :D) to see how it will turn out. 

The hop is currently over at Plum & June. She has a great giveaway that is open through November 3! Here's the rest of the schedule:

I am going to watch everyone else make a Weekender and then attempt one in the New year ;-)

Kristy @ Quiet Play said... #

So much fun stuff happening in blogland! Looking forward to seeing how your weekender turns out (bit beyond my sewing levels methinks!).

Thanks for posting about Sew Seasonal - should be a lot of fun!

I have my project all ready for Sew Seasonal. I'm so excited! I purchased the weekender pattern last month, but I don't know if I'll have time to sew along. I'll be reading along, though and hopefully sewing one soon.
