It's Day 1 of The Winter Blues Blog Hop!

Today we begin
 The Winter Blues Blog Hop.


We are celebrating the color blue!

This is a picture from the International Quilt Festival's Sapphire Exhibit in Houston.


I was so inspired by the Sapphire Exhibit at the quilt festival in Houston with all the blues.
Some of the blues were dark, some were light.
Some were more like teal (my favorite).
They were all blue.

So, I invited my blogging friends to
Stitch something up with the color blue. 

Let's celebrate winter with projects in blue.

I'm excited to introduce today's line-up of bloggers.

Monday, January 20th


Have fun visiting each blog and making new friends.
