Grow Your Blog

It's time for a blog hop! I'm participating in Grow Your Blog sponsored by 2 Bags Full which goes from 1.25.15 until 2.15.15. What a big job hosting a blog hop must be so many thanks to Vicki our host.

If you are new to my blog, and I'm hoping many of you are, let me tell you about myself.  My name is Susan and I live in Wisconsin USA. I love to create with fabrics and fibers and include sewing, embroidery, knitting, and weaving in my bag of tricks. I also like to cook so on my blog you'll find recipes scattered in among the art projects, tutorials and links.  I've tried over the years to limit myself and focus on one thing but it never works. I feel so sad to leave something out so, I don't. Often there will be more than one technique in the things I create so having a large bag of tricks is helpful!

Please leave a comment on this blog post...I'd love to hear from you and you will be entered in a drawing for this sparkly pincushion.  One can never have too many pincushions!

I will draw the winner on the 15th.  Please be sure I can e-mail you from your comment!  Thanks for stopping by.

Nose around my blog for awhile and if you enjoy it, there are two ways to follow me...e-mail or Google Friend Connect located at the top left of my sidebar. Then go here to find links to other amazing places to explore.

It is nice to meet you in this blog hop. The pin cushion is so cute. The cowl made me drool. I am finding that my yarn stash is increasing as I learn to crochet. I am a paper addict and I make jewelry every day. Enjoy the hop! Jennifer www.jennifersvintagepaperie.blogspot.com

Darts, Susan, how am I going to keep up with all of this? lol - I am visiting as Vicki's Rep today and absolutely love your blog. your link works just fine... I grew up in LaCrosse WI and so my heart is split between here and there. And your intro sounds familiar... smiles. I am a new follower and love the pin cushion, too. Congrats, I am sure you will grow your blog. I end up following more than I can handle sometimes, but hope to visit you often. Vicki is such a Sweetheart, I don't know how she does all that she does.

Being focused on one thing isn't half as much fun as playing around with many. It's even more fun when one thing works with another creating something altogether new. Enjoy the tour!

Monique (A Half-Baked Notion) said...

Hi Susan! Visiting from cold and snowy New Brunswick (very much like Wisconsin, I bet!) I love that you chose a pincushion for a prize... even though I don't sew much anymore, can you believe I actually use pins in jewelry making, and I always have them scattered willy-nilly ;)
