No Ring November Mug Rug Blog Hop Sign-Ups

 Today I am happy to announce a new stitching blog hop.


What is a Blog Hop?

It's like a "show and tell" online.
Our blog hops feature sewing and quilting and are like joining a quilt guild without leaving home.  Once the theme (challenge) is presented we set to work sewing.
We inspire each other with projects, tutorials, or patterns.
Anyone can follow along.

There are about 2 months to sew something and join in on the fun.  
It's another easy theme that should have you thinking of lots of things you could make.

The Challenge: 

Create something to protect those surfaces.
A mug rug, coaster, small placemat, anything to prevent those pesky rings on a table.
November is a busy month, so this should be a quick project.
Take a sip of a drink and make something to set it on.

The Rules:  

Post on your assigned day at 12:00 am Eastern time.
Have a giveaway or don't have a giveaway. It's totally optional!
Visit everyone's blog on the list and leave a sweet comment. Make friends!!!!

Are you in?

YES, that really is gochefs!!!!!!!!

Send me an email with the following information:
Your first name
Your email address
Your blog name
Your blog URL

Subject Line: No Ring!

PLEASE, email me the info.
I do know most of you, but if you don't send the info, I have to look up all your information.

If you have emailed me and don't hear from me within a few days, please email me again or contact me on Facebook.  Sometimes Hotmail eats my homework...lol

Remember, this is for fun.
Let's grow together!!!!

Welcome Fall - I'm Falling For You Blog Hop

  Welcome to the first day of the

I'm Falling For You
Blog Hop!

I'm happy to kick things off with
Welcome Fall


Joan at MooseStash Quilting presented bloggers with the challenge to make something for 
fall or fall-inspired.
Thank you, Joan, for inviting me to join this super fun blog hop!


Welcome Fall is a wall hanging that I designed with raw edge applique for my front door
and
is the perfect addition to my fall decor.
The leaves will be falling soon and I thought it would be fun to incorporate a basket of leaves.
I added dimension with leaves around the binding too.


My favorite product for raw edge applique is from Thermoweb.
It's HeatnBond EZ Print Lite iron-on adhesive so you can skip tracing by just printing the templates right on the paper side of the fabric adhesive.

Get inspired by all the blogs posting for Fall this week:

Monday, September 20



Tuesday, September 21



Wednesday, September 22



 Thursday, September 23



 Friday, September 24


It's so fun to get inspiration from Blog Hops.
I'm sure we will have way too many ideas swimming in our heads by the end of the week.


See you next month when Carol at Just Let Me Quilt hosts the 
Ghastly Ghouls blog hop!
 


Official sign-ups for the November Blog Hop will start soon 
(after the I'm Falling for You hop is over).


Stay tuned for the announcement here at 
Creatin' in the Sticks.

Happy Fall!

Fall Stitching with Thermoweb

 It's time to start a little fall stitching.


This is my newest pattern and it's free over at Thermoweb.

It only takes a few things to make this fun

Happy Fall Gnome Mini Quilt.


and a little bit of fabric.



I also have a super quick free tutorial over on the 
Thermoweb Blog for these festive
Fall Coasters


These are so quick and easy.
You can make a set for yourself and a friend.


This is my favorite time of year for stitching.
I've only just begun...

Is It Red or Is It Orange? - Orange You Glad Blog Hop

  Welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks 
and
my day - the final day for the Orange You Glad Blog Hop.

To all that participated or commented -
Thank you so much!
I enjoy hosting blog hop events so much.

My head is swimming with all kinds of ideas
and I can't wait to get to playing with orange!
But first, it's my day to show my
Red and Orange Turtles
and
do a little color play.


When the idea for this hop came along, my first thought was that I needed to use up some of the orange scraps in my ever-growing stash.

Then one day, I remembered a long argument...

You see, my mom had this turtle (she may still have it)
It was a little handcrafted bobblehead turtle that was so cute.
Similar to these...

I made a comment about how cute her little orange turtle was
and
she said, "It's RED!" 

Isn't funny how somethings look orange at one time and then look red at others.
It's all about the environment for some reds and oranges.

These turtles share a couple of fabrics - it's all about what you put the fabrics with.


The English paper pieced pattern for the turtle 
is 
free from Abby Glassenberg - Tilly the Turtle

They are about 6".

I own Abby's Puzzle Ball Animals Book - I have it in my list to make a couple.


Can you spot the same fabrics in both the red and the orange paper pieces?
Color is so interesting.

We are celebrating the color orange!


I'm sharing my day with these bloggers:


This blog hop is for everyone!
Have fun visiting each blog and making new friends.

They have worked hard to show us some new ideas, so be sure to thank them with 
a sweet comment!

Orange You Glad Blog Hop This Week

 I've invited my blogging friends to show off some orange stitching projects
this week
in the
Orange You Glad Blog Hop!


What is a Blog Hop?

It's like a "show and tell" online.
Our blog hops feature sewing and quilting and are like joining a quilt guild without leaving home. 
Carol at Just Let Me Quilt, Joan at MooseStash Quilting, and I come up with a challenge
and invite bloggers to email with their blog information if they want to join our hop.

After we get that info, we assign a date for them to post their project. 
We give everyone plenty of time to sew something, usually two months. 

We inspire each other with projects, tutorials, or patterns. 
Anyone can follow along!

It's all about orange this week!

I can't wait to see all the projects!

Check out this great group of bloggers that are
creating something inspired by the color 
orange.

Be sure to visit and leave some comment love!
