Music - Blog Hop Announcement for Sign-Ups

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

Let's jam in November!

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 do with MUSIC.
Do you have a song that inspires you or a tune you listen to when you sew?
Do you love a particular instrument or know someone who does?
Maybe something, anything, is music to your heart.
Does your Mary have a lamb?
Do you ave music fabric you need to use?
You decide!  
The theme is really your own interpretation, surprise us!

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: Music
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 week, please email me again or contact me on Facebook.  Sometimes Hotmail eats my homework...lol

(I will send you a date within one week after you sign up.)

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

Next year we have made a new plan, so you have only a few more chances to join
Blog Hops with us.  (more on this later)
We aren't going away, just going to make it a little more fun!!!!

The Magical Needle - Queen of Gadgets Blog Hop and Giveaway

the first day of the
Queen of Gadgets Blog Hop.

I'm happy to kick things off with
The Magical Needle.

Carol of Just Let Me Quilt invited bloggers to make a project with a favorite sewing tool
tell exactly why we love it.

What better tool to start the hop with than the foundation for all sewing, the magical needle?

Thank you, Carol, for inviting me to join this super fun blog hop!

I think the sewing needle is certainly the queen of all gadgets and has been around since pre-historic times.  There are so many types of sewing needles and if you can understand the size of a needle, you have accomplished something.  
Who decided the sizing of needles???
  The larger the number the smaller the needle?

My witch really likes a big needle!

She is stitching to get ready for Halloween
is joining my Stitchy Witchy table runner witches...

You can find that pattern HERE.

"The Magical Needle" witch pattern is the sitting down witch from the runner,
 only I enlarged her and made a very large needle.

After all, it's about the gadgets this week.

Check out the others sharing gadgets today:
