I'm being a copy-cat today....

Usually I write my own post about any new blog hops or projects I find on the net to share with you.  But today I'm going to copy verbatim from the Sew Mama Sew blog about the 7th Annual Handmade Holidays series that started Nov 1st.  All the info is posted there, so it's silly of me to re-post it my own words, when she's already done such a great job of it.  So here you go:

Handmade Holidays is a long-running tradition here at Sew Mama Sew. It’s our favorite time of the year! Every year we love to help you find the best tutorials, recipes and printables. It’s our sincere hope that the series inspires you to create for the people in your life, infusing your gifts with love, care and beauty. The season is a whirl of excitement so we start early, giving you a new round of ideas every day in November. This year we invited guest curators to find the best tutorials. Their fresh perspectives make this our biggest and best Handmade Holidays yet! We also have a tremendous number of fabulous giveaways (it grows every year!). Stop by every day in November for a chance to win a new craft book, fabric, patterns, gift certificates and more. We have more updates coming soon, and we kick off our first day this Friday, November 1!

We have a fabulous set of prizes for you to win throughout Handmade Holidays! Each week you can comment to win craft books, fabric and more. Visit each day to find out what you can win (and what you'll want to add to your holiday wish list).

So head over to Sew Mama Sew now and check out the prizes and great ideas for your holiday season!  See ya' there.

Until next time...

Some new blog hops coming up....

 The Wicked Blog Hop
 just finished and next in line is For the Boys Blog Hop.  Think anything and everything BOYS.  Projects that boys will love... quilts, nap sacks, sleeping bags, name it...there's sure to be lots of inspiration for projects for the boys in your life.

After that is Black Tie Boogie, Rooster Blog Hop, where the bloggers will create anything with roosters, turkeys, hens, or chicks.  Anything from kitchen accessories, 3D roosters, whatever, as long as they use roosters, hens, or  chicks in their project..  So if you have a barnyard fetish, lol, be sure to check out these chic(k) projects.

Links for both hops are in my sidebar.

Today over at The Quilting Gallery voting starts for a new Quilters’ Show & Tell. The category is Halloween Fun Quilts.  Any quilt size and technique is acceptable, so I decided to enter the Cat Magic quilt that I pattern tested for Jess over at the Quilt 'N Needle last year.
I showed it to you a couple of days ago after I finally got it bound and on display.  I think it's the perfect Halloween quilt--it has a black cat on it!
So make sure to stop in later and look over all the Halloween quilts that will be on display.  And if you like my "JD" memory quilt, I'd love a vote from you.  Voting is Friday thru Monday morning, Nov 1st-Nov 4th, so vote for your favorite Halloween quilts.

Until next time,
Happy quilting from Sharon, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash
