Flags On A Stick! - Sign Ups Open!

We have more places available if you want to join us in the hop! 

 Send us that email to sign up! 

It all started with Madame Samm's delightful neighbours ( Bob and Darlene)  who
seasonally add FLAGS ON A STICK
that always has her smiling when she drives by.
 After seeing their Christmas one,
and lo and behold someone had a company with
that exact name…. Yes, totally freaked her out! 

Of course then, she was already thinking BLOG HOP!
She was already thinking "WE can design our very own FLAGS"
She was already thinking " Maybe you too will want to play"

Yep that is what she was thinking… ( her creative muscle has
been, well shall we say…sparkling…her DH calls 
her sparky - now you know why)

So here SHE is waving her FLAG to all of you…
Let's create a FLAG that says something about US….
Some personal ideas Madame Samm came up with…

"A Quilter LIVES HERE…
in her studio 24 hours a day"

it will consume YOU!

"Welcome to my land
of MAKE believe…
( I believe I can make anything)

or be inspired by some of these

Valentines is this week!

 ( each post during our hop, will show you more)

Of course you will have many ideas….your country,
your name, your family's name, your garden, your fav coffee ( ok that is her's again)
YOU can create it with anything, your quilting fabric, ( you will have to take
it if it rains though) how about Laminates, or oil skins….

and here is where you can be more CREATIVE whereby
the rewards will be an opportunity to

tell me more…

This is from FLAGS ON A STICK...

OHHHH ONE  more thing….

I would also like to convey, that it is a possibility
