Shake Your Pom Poms Blog Hop

Welcome to everyone visiting the blog today!  If this is your first time visitingwI hope you kick your feet up and enjoy your stay!  If this isn't your first time, I'm glad you're back!  There are some free tutorials on the right hand side of the blog and some other links across the top.  Be sure to stop by our website before you leave ... there are other interesting things there including a place to sign up for our monthly newsletter (Hint: You receive a free pattern when you sign up the first time!!).  To learn more about me and my company click here, my patterns are here and you can find out more about my longarm services here!  Again, thanks for stopping by!  We're glad you're here!

Sometimes you need to do something just so you can jump out of the box you're in, and that's why a month or so ago when I saw this blog hop, I just had to join!  It got me to thinking outside the box ... what in the world could I make using pom poms?!?  Hmmmm????  I love flowers ... what flowers have large heads on them? ... what would be something as cute to make as pom poms themselves?!? DAISIES!  This project was so fun to make and the brighter colors are perfect just in time for summer!

Before my reveal though I just have to thank Madame Samm for organizing these blog hops (year round, I might add!) to give all of us bloggers a chance to "strut our stuff" and the amazing Thearica of Pig Tales and Quilts who cheered us on as we get ready for this blog hop ... you did a GREAT job!  Also, a very special shout out of thanks to the sponsors who helped make this blog hop possible!

Without further ado, the project ...

You may remember my post from yesterday where I was debating the background and my sketches ... well, this is how it turned out!

  8. I recently finished quilts for my brother and SIL twin grandchildren. On the granddaughter quilt's label (and one of her names is her grandma's) I put a comment that one of my earliest memories of her grandmother is her love of daisies. I embroidered a few daisies on the label. Now that I see the beautiful blue background I also remember how she loves blue. The poms are a perfect completion to the project. Now, I have a great idea for her for a gift. These hops are wonderful for bringing out the best of the best in the creativity in folks and inspiring all of us. Thank you for participating and being very creativity and certainly inspiring. Before I leave your website, I'm off to have fun visiting. Again, many thanks for a job well done.
