Turkey Trot Challenge Blog Hop Wrap-up

 Well, another inspirational hop is in the books and there was no shortage of ideas.

A big shout out to my fellow bloggers for inspiring us, this Thanksgiving season.
If you haven't seen all the beautiful project yet, the full schedule is posted 

 You can also find them on our "Turkey Trot" Pinterest page

It's hard to believe that 2023 is almost over, isn't it?
Carol is wrapping up the year with her annual "Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange" blog hop and it never disappoints!

If you would like to be a part of our hops next year, we would love to have you!
It's no longer necessary for you to have a blog yourself. We are expanding our hop to include Facebook and Instagram posts as well. 

What is a blog hop? 

It's like a "show and tell" online or like joining a quilt guild without leaving home. Carol from from "Just Let Me Quilt" and I post a challenge on our blogs and those who want to join in email us with their URL blog, Instagram, Facebook info (IG and FB are new in 2024.) After we get that info, we assign a date for them to post their project. The idea is to visit the first blog and then go to the next blog/IG/FB, etc. We give everyone plenty of time to sew something, usually two months. We inspire each other with projects, tutorials, or patterns. Anyone can follow along! Projects are posted on each blog and include the other participants. 


These are the "rules" for being a participant:

It is important that you post your project on your scheduled day.

You can preset your blog post to go live any time after 11 p.m. MST. (night before)

It's okay if it pops up early...that's better than being late.

If your project isn't quite done, show it anyway. 

People remember if you're a no show...we don't want that!

Above all, have fun and enjoy the sweet fun of a blog hop!

If you're posting on IG/FB, make sure your post is live by 11 p.m. MST. (night before)


I know we're all busy and can't always visit all the participants on the exact day, but PLEASE visit them as soon as you can.

We all love to receive some kind words and recognition for our work.

If you have any questions, you can always reach out to us.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving filled with friends, family and great food!

 til next time...

 Keep on Stitchin'
