New Beginnings Blog Hop with Island Batik


It's a brand new year and we've got a new attitude!
We are shaking things up and sharing with you.
We have seen some fabulous projects with the new lines 
Island Batik has released.
I'm sure your heads are spinning with ideas of your own.

Today I'm sharing the cool new "Frost" Collection.


Oh how those colors,  can warm your heart on a cold winter day!




On this winter day, I put on my thinking cap.


Friends and Frost...


I really can't think of anything that says "Frost", 
better than snowmen do...
and this fun new line of fabric, sure makes them come to life.


Give Away time...
and no one does it better than Island Batik.



        I do want to thank the fine folks of Island Batik and all my fellow
    ambassadors. Your creativity and  support means the world to me!
                      You can find the complete schedule of this hop
                                                   HERE


Hummm... I guess a little disclaimer is due...
No, I don't really think all my friends are flakes!
Just a few.
;-)
Does that leave you wondering, if I'm thinking of you?
LOL!!!!
You know I love  you all!

Till next time...
Keep on Stitchin'

  26. Joan, can you share the source for the alphabet you used on this quilt? Or any source you may have for alphabets. I downloaded one once and got a virus so I have not searched since.
