The Winter Blues Blog Hop

Welcome to this first day, and my day, of the blog hop hosted by Carla at Creatin' in the sticks. Be sure to visit her blog to find all the details for this hop, a list of all participants, a giveaway, and a link to a Pinterest board to see all the beautiful things made for this hop.



I've had so much fun using my blue fabrics the last two weeks. I even used all the smallest pieces of blue in my doll bed quilt, using 1/4" hexies. I love how this came out.





If you have visited my blog before, you probably know that I love pincushions. So I had to make two for the hop. As I live in Norway, you should have got pictures with my pincushions in the snow. But with no snow here, you can get them among the flowers outside my door.





The last thing I made for the hop is this hot pad. I love making them, and they are great gifts. They are 7"x 11", and just the right size for a lasagna pan or as a mug rug. Can you spot that little sweet kittie?





If this wasn't enough, you may find more blue things from last week here.

This is the list of my fellow hoppers today. If you love blue, this is the right place to start.
