Welcome

Dots On Dots–Come Dot With Me.


dotsondotsbuttonCorrie A dot, dot here and a dot, dot there, here a dot, there a dot, everywhere a dot, dot.  I sing the song of dots and the praises of all the dot hoppers that have participated in this doting blog hope.



I like to give a big dotting high five to Madame Samm (Sew We Quilt) and Corrie of Quilt Taffy who are hosting this most dotting blog hop.

I love blog hopping, you get to meet new bloggers, check out their work, get inspired and just have a lot of fun.  Don’t forget all the great give a ways that also follow. 

Now my story of dots,  I have been stressing about what block I wanted to do.  When hopping I do not like to do blocks that I am use to doing, I like to challenge myself.  This is also an opportune time to do a block that I have been wanting to do.
Here are some dot items I did early before the hop and a finish bag.

That is my Profession Tote, please don’t look at the mess in side the bag, it is well used.  Put you can see I have been dotting along.

Now for what I did.  As you know I am not call the Slow Quilter for nothing, ideas for projects will pop into my head at the last minute, like days before the project is due.  May be I should be call the Last Minute Quilter.  So what did I decide to do?  Well Me Of Course.

Well o.k. not me, but my symbol, my totem, my talisman, THE TURTEL.

Here are his friends.  Sorry that the picture is not too clear, put they are dots.  There was no one home to hold it up.  This was my chance to use the drunkards path block.
Hope you like my turtles.  And please stop by to see the other blog hoppers.  It has been extended to Sept. 21st.
