Kona, EQ7, Grow Your Blog, And Other Stuff

I was in totally drool-mode just looking at all the projects made with 
Kona solids in the Wake Up To Kona Blog Hop.
It's been one of my favorite blog hops (I know, I say that every time.)

We still have a few more days left of the Wake Up To Kona Hop and then we'll be off and running with more fun hops.

Last year I bought EQ7 software during a really good sale...then didn't use it. I happened upon a retreat, Quilt St. George 2014, and was so excited (really, I was SO excited) because I saw that Annie from was teaching classes about Electric Quilt software. I got to go to three classes...loved it!

Oh boy, oh boy!

It was so cool...not that I'm magically good at it now, but I learned a lot. Plus, I came home with all these really cool gifts, samples, and books!

While visiting my favorite blogs I came across info on this fun blog party, Grow Your Blog. I signed up (did you?) I can't wait to find new blogs, meet new bloggers, and have a few visitors stop by my blog. Vicki at 2 Bags Full will be hosting this incredible event. Be sure to check it out! Oh, and...

I'll be having a G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y!

I picked up my sewing machine today and now it's totally fixed. Yay!
It's a good thing, because look what blog hops are coming really SOON!

See you Monday for more of Wake Up To Kona!


  1. I' m looking forward to the blog hops too.

  2. Hi, Carol ... I just wrote my post for the Grow Your Blog Hop. I am really looking forward to finding many new and interesting blogs.

    I am also looking forward to the other upcoming blog hops from Sew We Quilt! I am always sew amazed and inspired by these hops.

    I am loving the Kona solid one so much, though, that I do not want to see it end. Good thing there these other hops coming up to enjoy ... :) Pat

  4. Oh no.....I was busy and put it off too long Carol; didn't sign up this time. But I will be visiting.

  5. I need to bite the bullet and take an EQ7 class. I know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to do it quickly or accurately.
    There is so much going on in blogland.
    The Kona hop has been off the charts!

  6. Glad to hear your machine is back! Happy sewing!

  7. Yay ! I'm glad your machine is home and healthy !

  8. Looking forward to see your projecs and it`s great have your machine back.
