Welcome everyone! I hope you enjoy your here In The Boon Docks!

I am excited to be participating in the Dots on Dots Blog Hop which is being hosted by
Madame Samm @ Sew We Quilt and Corrie @ Quilt Taffy. Thank you both for all you have done!

I kind of broke the size rule! I hope Madame Samm doesn't ban me from her blog hops because I really love blogging in them and hopping to all the other bloggers sites. So far this hop has had so many gorgeous projects I would love to make.

Dresden Plate Block

My block is 24" x 24", the fabrics I used to make this Dresden Plate are Ombre Dots by Riley Blake and Kona Cotton Solid Coal by Robert Kaufman.

New Things In The Boon Docks

Just Delivered

I am so excited, I won these from Deborah of Simply Miss Luella She is co-hosting a Fusion Blanket Crochet Along, it combines both fabric and crocheting, and you can't get much better than that. The blanket is just beautiful! You should go and see after you read me! Hee hee! Thank you Deborah I will be working on my stitches and try to make you proud.

"The Crochet Stitch Bible" is amazing! It is very detailed and shows you how to do each stitch. Look at some of them. I have been crocheting since 5th grade, made lots of blankets and scarfs, but I only know 2 stitches. So, this book opens up a whole new world. The magazine has some very beautiful projects in it. My mother-in-law is getting the needle holder. You should always be nice to hubby's mom! I might let her look at the book but it is mine! Love it to pieces! I will try to update you on any progress in new stitches! My next QAL! Anyone want to join me?
