Hi Everyone!!!! whether it's your first time or your a long time reader of my blog thank you for stopping by today!  I am primarily a card maker but I love to quilt and when I saw the Dare To Dresden blog hop I knew I really wanted to make one so I joined immediately! I knew that once I committed I would finish my first Dresden quilt...I loved every step of making this quilt but WOW! what a lot of work! it kinda seemed never ending at one point but every new step made me smile so it was worth it..my fabric is from Camille and Bonnie's line called Bliss..I absolutely love this color combo! Now I will be offering a $20.00 Starbucks gift card (USA only) as my blog candy..all you need to do is leave a comment telling me if your new to my blog or an oldie LOL! I will choose a winner on Sunday :) ..Click on pictures to see them a little bit closer...it was raining all day on Thursday so my pictures aren't outstanding but hopefully their still nice enough :) ....I appreciate you stopping by! have an awesome weekend and thank you to Sew We Quilt and Quilt Monster In My Closet for letting me join in this blog hop ...Oh and I do have family and friends who don't know how to comment on my blog so they post on  Facebook so they will also be entered to win the blog candy as long as they post on the link :) ...
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!

  76. I may be too late to be included in your giveaway, but I can still comment because I wanted to tell you how pretty your Dresdens are. Those are such great fabrics. I am just like you a little because I too, LOVE Bonnie & Camille's fabrics. I do love Bliss like you, but I have loved every single fabric collection they have released. They have such gorgeous colors in them all.

    And OMG I just adore the Christmas dog picture you have on the right border. That is just priceless, especially the one to the left of the chair. He is too cute.

    I am a new follower to your blog. It would be awesome if you added a way to follow via email however. That's the easiest for me to be sure I visit more often. Of course, it's really NOT all about me so you can do as you please there. :) But I would really love if you do decide to add that. Thanks.
