I was just a bit behind in my Blog projects when I signed up so I didn't have a plan at the beginning, just faith that something would come to mind.
Faith paid off. One day while I was bouncing around Blog land I ended up at Lynette Anderson's blog. She is a very talented designer of stitchery from down under. I found this great project on her sight with a pointer to a Quilt store that carried it in the states. This is about where my brain went into overload.
I immediately made the call to a shop in Oregon by the name of Quiltz. They had the project in 4 patterns. I ordered them all. Sight unseen. To be fair to myself they were on sale BUT!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that I had the project in hand I wasn't sure of the goal of the Hop. To do any stitchery or did I need to use one of the stitchery patterns supplied with the hop. I compromised I used one of the great stitchery patterns supplied by Cyndi Hoeller from bee tree designs for the Hop and the finished project from the Lynette Andersen pattern.
Here is the first hint of the finished project. No it's not a hat.
Here is the second hint...........got it yet?
So what do you think?
Aren't they great. They are a gift for my friend J in Florida. I will be giving them to her before this is posted so for a change it will be a complete surprise. She tends to snoop before my visits to see what she's getting. She is one of those people who finds her hidden presents, unwraps and rewraps them on the sneak.
This is one of the most fun projects I have ever made. The stitchery was the time consuming part in relationship to the entire project. I did each slipper in one evening. Putting the stitchery into the project took under 3 hours.
Since I have 4 of these patterns I thought I could giveaway at least 1 maybe 2. Just leave a word or 2 in your comment that you would like to be included.
It's thank you time. Let's start with M Samm for coming up with yet another great time. To Cyndi, Debbie and M Samm for their wonderful stitchery patterns and Jane for being our great Cheer Leader.
Please take some time and visit the other wonder stitchers who are posting today. Wonders abound.
