Organized by Marian of Seams To Be Sew and Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy, this hop was open internationally so we have bloggers/designers from Washington to Africa. Twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) a 4-5 designers will share their row and will have it available for free as a download on their blog. There will also be give-a-ways as well.
You will need to visit each blog on their designated day to receive the download and to enter the give-a-ways. The downloadable patterns for each row will be available for free till the end of the hop. After that it is up to each designer to decide if they will charge for their pattern or not. So be share to visit everyone during the hop not only to download the rows but to enter the give-a-ways as well. Don’t miss Marian at Seams To Be Sew for there will be a give-a-ways each day of the hop also.
There are some awesome sponsors during the hop.
The road home for me is Oklahoma. I grew up in the northeastern corner known as Green Country.
When people think of Oklahoma they usually think of the song Oklahoma where the wind is sweeping down the plain. For that reason my Oklahoma state applique is golden and I placed Mistletoe in the center for it is our state flower.
The northeastern corner of Oklahoma can be a surprise to those who have never traveled through. It’s a very beautiful area filled with small mountains (yes, us Okies call them mountains 🙂 ) lakes and lots of trees. Fishing and camping was and is how a lot of Okies (and travelers) spend their summers. So I showed that in my row. But, there is so much more to Oklahoma. I couldn’t put it all in my row so I focused on the things that were special to me growing up.
A big part of Oklahoma that no one can escape is Oklahoma is Native country.
I myself am Cherokee and have ancestors who came to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears. I love being Cherokee.
In case your were wondering what the wording on my block is, it’s Cherokee. The English way to write it is Osiyo. It means hello in Cherokee.
The northeastern corner is home to the Cherokee Nation. The nation has a wonderful TV show called OsiyoTV. This video shows you Diligwa. A representation of a Cherokee village.
No teepees! Ha!
I hope enjoyed your visit today and all the videos.
Here is my row stitched out.
For today’s give way click on the pics and they will take you to there.
