And since it is May it seems like the perfect time to launch the Summer Blog Hop. I started this one in 2012 when the theme was a Holiday Postcard, see this post for the list of participants and links to their posts.
The next year I decided we'd have a Staycation and asked people for pictures on the theme of Home:
After Home the logical progression would seem to be Gardens. So the theme for this year's Blog Hop will be Gardens. All you have to do is send me a photo of a stitched picture on the theme Garden and a little message about why your garden is important to you, or what you love about your garden, or why you don't have one but what you would like in your ideal garden. As usual, the joining-in is the important thing, you're not being judged on the quality of your essay LOL.
Once I have a few photos I will start sending them off to the other participants to post on their blogs. If you think you'd like to take part please leave a comment here. You can send your photo in anytime between now and the end of August.
edit - if you want to send a photo of your actual garden too, please do. But not compulsory, the stitched picture is the essential bit!
I do enjoy stitching for other people but the onlydrawback is that you can't show progress photos until after the person has received their gift. So really the only thing I have to show this post is my continuing progress on Spooky Countdown:
