Image
Welcome back blog hoppers!
I really have missed you!
That includes you Madam Samm, Sew We Quilt (Head Couch) and
Shari Living With Purpose (Head Cheerleader)!
So glad to be back and hopping around myself!
Thank you both for all the work
you both did putting this one all together!

Hello Everyone!
You are at "In The Boon Docks" and I am Lisa!
Come on in and have a look around
and see what I spent the last couple months doing!

See you in September!
(It is now time)
Day 1

3 projects

Project 1
Riley Blake Designs Gingham.

I started searching through my stash
and found the blue medium gingham
and this great matching blue with white polka dots!
I used small blue gingham on the inside for the lining!

Strawberries are really popular
on Instagram lately and the red made for great contrast!
I found these two strawberries on a scrap of fabric and ironed on
HeatnBond Lite by therm-o-web.
Cut them out, peeled the back off,
and ironed them on my front panel!

Then using Aurifil 50 wt. threads sewed…

A Perfect Picnic Blog Hop

Image
Hello Everyone!

Welcome to In The Boon Docks, I am Lisa, today is
day 5 of the hop and our day for a picnic! Well by now you have seen some pretty nice picnics
and beautiful quilts!

Lately our lives are a bit turned upside down!
Sewing is a passion for me,
I love it and blog hops
but responsibility to family always comes first.

It is easy to plan a perfect picnic
But when you mix life into it
Anything goes

I think I covered all the requirements with the help
of our Grandkids and a great Giveaway!

(Hopefully Madam Samm @ Sew We Quilt and
Mary @ I Piece 2 - Mary
will laugh at our perfect picnic)!
Without them we wouldn't have had this great blog hop
so thank you both for all your planning and hard work!

Most important for the "Perfect Picnic"
Is entertainment
Kids love water
David enjoy teaching Zoey
Slip and slide

(She mostly sat and got sprayed)

(It looks pretty good for being 20 years old) Have a menu!
(For two kids the best menu is always…

What is up in the boon docks

Hello welcome to In The Boon Docks
Things have been a little busy around here and I still cannot talk about it for a few more days. I have created something can you guess? Craftsy has a new class I signed up for late last night.Camille Roskelley - Playful Piecing Techniques! You get 4 downloadable patterns! I like Craftsy courses because I can watch a little, do a project in the course, and then come back weeks later and step back in where I left off. I love Camille's Swoon pattern and her book Simply Retro. I will share what I learn. If anyone signs up let me know and we can have a little show!Sew We Quilt tBlog Hops

In November, I am participating in both of these hops and I have some great giveaways coming your way! I hope you will join me for a little fun! The big Halloween dance is Friday night! My husband and I always like to go to what the kids come up with each year and see the latest dance moves! Our guy is ready to dance all night to bad it ends at 8:00 pm. May the f…

Today I am writing to you about Madam Samm's Blog @ Sew We Quilt. She has a new button that she wants to spread around blogland! For doing it she will enter you into a giveaway for $250 in vouchers for different stores. Not only that, she gives you different ways to earn up to 8 chances to win. To get the code for the button and find out more goHERE! The very first blog hop I participated with Madam Samm in was the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop, on July 6, 2012. I made one block and I was so proud of my accomplishment. Madam Samm has really gotten me to stretch my imagination over the last year and a half. My last entries, in the Pin It Blog Hop, were these items. Hilda Hen won most creative on our day! I was so happy, just for the title! Madam Samm thinks up all these great hops. Participate just once and you will be hooked. It is awesome to create and show with designers from around the world.

Thank you Madam Samm for encouraging me to be the best I can be! You are the best …
