Best of 2017 Linky Party

Another year in the books.
I always ask myself...just where did it go.
Cheryl over at "Meadow Mist Designs" hosts a
fun "Best Of"   linky party each year.
It's a great way to reflect as well as catch up, on things I might have missed
 from my fellow bloggers.
Blog hops still draw my highest number of readers.
Hands down, the snowmen have it this year!
 "New Beginnings" hop
 with "Island Batik" kicked it all off.
I did a little designing and had a change to show off a new line of fabrics for them.
Followed by the "Fresh Snow" blog hop.
Recycling old jeans and some mystery fabric made for a warm and snuggly quilt.
Perfect for those long winter nights. 
"World Wide Quilting" day rolled around...
I shared my sewing space along with my crazy addiction the the "sport",
in the Quilt Qwazy Queens blog hop.
This year I was invited to play with some amazing friends, and design a block for the
"Sun, Sand and Sea BOM.
My block was "Grab Your Shovel".
My finished quilt.
I have to give a big shout out to 
"Island Batik" for sponsoring and providing the fabrics.
They sure do make a gorgeous quilt, don't you think?
It's not over yet...
There's a brand new free BOM for 2018
Check out the details
Adventurous Applique...an "Island Batik" ambassador challenge 
Island Batik challenges their ambassadors monthly...
It's a great way to stretch our imaginations and inspire.

But my best inspiration is none other than you!
My readers and followers who leave those sweet comments...
I can't thank you enough.
2017 was a great year and  
I've made some wonderful friends along the way.
Check out what my fellow bloggers have been up to...
Here's to 2018...
let the fun continue.
Hope to see you all in the new year.

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
