Are You Hopping?

This is for all of you who were wondering where the music was on THIS post.

Now that I've got that straightened out....I have no idea where that video went after I embedded it.

Moving forward now:
Have you been hopping around checking out all the Machine Embroidery samples completed for the SewCalGal Fall Machine Embroidery Blog Hop?  If your answer is not a resounding YES, then I might suggest you get to hopping because there will be a winner chosen from each blog.  

Mr. McSteamy brought up my embroidery machine and I was finally able to complete my project.  Here it is:
 I made the Owl Scissor Keep using Floriani Stabilizer and Floriani Embroidery Thread.  I also used National Nonwoven Wool Felt and I think it came out pretty cute.  Next I'd like to make the Ice Cream Cone Scissor Keep. 
Look how nicely my Dovo Embroidery Scissors fit into my Owl Scissor Keep.  Doesn't that Owl look very smart?  LOL  If you are just joining the hop then you'll want to know that the designer is Zandra Shaw from Embroider Shoppe.  In order to qualify to win a design of your choice you must leave a comment on THE OTHER POST - not here. 

When I was looking for coordinating fabrics to go on the back of the Owl Scissor Keep I noticed I don't have many really fun and bright dots or stripes.....sooooo when I found the Michael Miller Happy Tones Fat Quarter Bundle I wanted to jump for joy!  But I didn't because I was not about to take any risks with my broken ankle.  In place of jumping for joy....I added them to IHAN®.  Check out these fun fabrics:

If these fabrics don't make you smile....then I suggest that you get a "rainbow enema" and call me in the morning...giggles.  You are looking at 30 reasons to smile right here in this one box. 

Since breaking my ankle I have received several flower arrangements from family and friends.  I'm not saying I'm not deeply appreciative....I truly am.  At the same time...can I still say this Happy Tones Fat Quarter Bundle would have lasted longer and continued to bring joy for years to come.  If there is someone in your life that you would like to bring some joy and happiness to....think about sending them a Happy Tones Fat Quarter Bundle and I'd be happy to write the personalized note and ship it for you :)  I even put them on sale....and the holidays are right around the corner :)

I know the Flamingo lovers are wanting their updates. 
The Flamingo Family celebrated Halloween in style this year.

They are also enjoying the Fall leaves.

Time to get to is a reminder to leave a comment on each of these gal's blogs for your chance to win your choice of designs from the Embroider Shoppe.  Best of  luck to all of you!

  1. I personally love to receive a Happy Tones bundle! They are gorgeous! Your scissor keeper is very cute. The blog hop has been fun,Botox.

  2. Wow, and you did this all one-footed? Rainbow enema. You almost made me spew V8 juice from my nose (wouldn't that be a fun visual!)

  3. What cute scissor keepers. Love the vibrant colors. Great job.

    And that beautiful collection of Happy Tones would certainly make any quilter happy. Who wouldn't want to create with that. And, even better wouldn't every quilter want to find that under their Christmas Tree?

    Thanks for the Flamingo update. Although I thought in honor of you, they should all be wearing casts on a foot!


  4. You did a good job on your little owl - he turned out really well, all bright & cheery! That pile of leaves sure looks like it's waiting for someone to jump into - I hope it's not something you're considering....just sayin...

  5. Your owl looks sharp and the Happy tones made me happy!


  6. Love your little owl and the happy tone fabric liberty is so bright and cheerful

  7. I have been trying to follow and comment on every blog. I hope I hit them all. :-) Maybe I will win on one of them. I have a couple of things there that I really love.

  8. I love those scissor keepers! It looks like you are managing to get around a bit????
