Stamp on it Blog Hop


I just love this hop... not that I don't love them all, but this one really caught my attention!   A personal stamp, I can design my very own stamp, what fun!

A big round of applause to our infamous Madame Samm, who's creativity tops the charts, and of course our favorite blog hop mom, Thearica from Pig Tales and Quilts.  You girls have no idea just how much we all love you!


For those who know me, you knew my stamp would have a moose on it...and you are soooooo right!  After all, is there really anything else??? LOL!!




He is another of those adorable Whipper Snapper designs.  Is his face, just the about sweetest thing you have ever seen? Although I have to say, I've not met many moose with sweet dispositions. :-)

            My new kitchen needed a new trivet, and this was just perfect!





Remember those trivet tux's I did a few years ago?  These fit over ceramic tiles and are removable so they can easily be washed. It's such a great way to add a little zing to your kitchen.  For those who are new to my blog, you can find the tutorial right here...

http://moosestashquilting.blogspot.com/2011/02/scrap-your-way-to-wonderful-trivets.html

 I used a 12" tile for this, but the fun thing is, they are so versatile that you can use any size your little heart desires.  My new floor is done in 6"x24" tiles...hummmm now that would make an interesting trivet. I'm gonna have to give that one a try  :-)

Give a way time...
It's summer here in the USA, and so much to do, that sometimes quilting takes a back seat. So I have this little quilt pattern to give a way.
Fast, fun and easy. Best of all, it would make a fabulous picnic throw.
Just leave me a comment telling me about your favorite summer time fun!
I'll be picking a winner on July 3rd, the last day of our hop!
 
Till then, be sure to stop in and see everyone's creations.
Enjoy!!


                                  Here is today's lineup.
                I am off to see what fun "stamps" they have created!
                                        See you there.

  6. Just simply adore the moose and to make a trivet with it was a wonderful idea..thanks for the link. My favorite summer pastime I would ave to say, and don't laugh is eating all the wonderful fruits and veggies that we don't have during the winter months....just love it....have a great day.

  7. Your moose is so cute, but the Swedish mooses I have seen IRL are not cute, they are so big. Your stamp is adorable and a great idea to make a trivet out of it. My favorite doing in summer is to sit on my balcony eating strawberries and other juicy fruits that are ripening during summer.
    Thank you for sharing your creativity. Summer greetings from me in Sweden

I love Summer cause I can get in my yard and work to my hearts content without freezing to death. And I love to see everthing so green alive and growing. I love to feel the sun on my skin.

  23. I love to get up early and relax on our back deck which faces east and watch the sun come up with a fresh cup of coffee. It is so quiet and peaceful at that time of the day, before all the daily hustle and bustle invades. I love your stamp quilt. It is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

  24. how cute is he! I live in a city, but the area I'm in is not far from wooded country. Moose occasionally come down to visit and I've seen them twice a block from my apartment. They are great animals.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I just checked out your tutorial on the trivet--that is such a cool idea! Your moose is adorable and really has a cute face for such a grumpy creature (though I've never even met a moose at all.) Love the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  26. <3 Love the Moose! <3 Sew cute ... (real moose,impressively large creatures, but not so cute) ... This is just the "signature" stamp for you. Thanks for the tutorial ... :) Pat

  27. Just perfect! We are very familiar with moose here in Newfoundland. Lots of car accidents on the highway due to these critters roaming around. I do like the idea of making a trivet holder. Must put it on my to-do list. Thanks

  35. You and your Moose and Thearica and her Pigs should get together and do an moose and pig project, lol. Your moose is cute as can be and the trivet is a wonderful idea! Thanks for the tutorial. I will be making some of those this year for gifts...but sorry mine won't have a moose on it, lol.

  59. Love, love, love your stamp trivet. I'm into the rustic, primitive look here in my PA home. Thank you for the tutorial and also for the chance to win your giveaway. My favorite thing to do in the summer is to spend my time outside gardening, or going to classic car shows with my hubby. As long as I'm outside, I'm happy!! Winter is too long in NW PA.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Much too cute and useful too. It looks like a real stamp. USPS needs too see it. I'll check the tut--it happened before I was a follower.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. hmm how did I know I'd find a moose over here? ooh and such a cutie! love it. oh and my favorite summer time thing- besides going to the beach ( which is difficult since I live in northern Illinois) is Vacation Bible School! its coming up in two weeks and this year the theme is Diner Disaster. I am so excited!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love your trivet. The moose is adorable. Great job!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is such a great addition to your moose collection. I would really love to make a trivet cover--maybe after the next hop. LOL I love it when my granddaughters come for a week in the summer along with their mom and dad, when he doesn't have to work. This week, we have baked pies, made homemade ice cream, made homemade chicken and noodles, made water bottle carriers, made tulip baskets, made pillow cases, and decorated bird houses. We still have 3 days to go! Oh, I forgot to mention the wiener roast and the fact that they got to go to quilt club with me. Great fun!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love how you got the shading just right on the moose's underbelly (is that correct grammar?) You never disappoint, Joan! I am not familiar with your trivet tux but will go check it out.

    As for the giveaway, it is one that I already have in my library and intend to use for a child's pro bono quilt though I drew it as a rectangular after I bought it since most kids are not square, LOL.
