Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop

Hugs and Kisses and Valentine wishes!! 

 
This embroidery designs just says it all doesn't it?
 
 
I was so excited when Madame Samm announced this new blog hop.
Ok, I know your all saying, that you have read that line a time or two. What can I say?  I get excited over all the blog hops it seems, your right!
 
But this time I was in the middle of working on my Fishy quilt and the lightening bolt of inspiration hit me immediately.
 
I'd swim the ocean blue, just to get a smooch from you!
 
So hi-ho, hi-ho, it was off to work I go...
 
Those crazy little fishies, with the heart lips, were screaming to be turned into my project!
 
Once they were done, another little guy whispered into my ear, and demanded to not be left out
 
 
It Moose Be Love!
 
I actually had the courage to cut into my coveted snow dye fabric for this project. I have kept it long enough, and decided it was time to put it to work for me.  Who would have guessed that it would be in a Valentines project?
 
Hope you all got your hugs and kisses on Valentines day yesterday!
 

Here's a big smooch for Madame Samm and our fearless leader Jane.
You girls are the best!
 
Please stop by and visit my fellow bloggers today, the last day of this hop. I know they are waiting for you!
 

Friday February 15th

Why Knot Kwilt









 
 
Give a way... Did someone mention give a way?
 
Right on topic, I have a book called "Affairs of the Heart" by Aie Rossman
She will make you an applique profici-anado in no time!
 
 
Leave me a message. I will pick a winner on Monday Feb 18th.
 
Enjoy our final day of the hop.

I really like the bright colors in the fish and those colors just wouldn't do it in the moose quilt. I love Mr Moose. I guess love is sure in bloom in the animal world. Thank you for participating, inspiring us, and adding a smile to our faces.
