One Thousand Five Hundred and Twenty Nine Hoppers later......

Okay....think the title may speak as to why I have been AWOL for the last few days.  Yup, we gave away 1529 block kits during the five days of Shop Hop.  In other words, we were *hopping* to keep up!  It's tons of fun as always.  The customers are having fun, plus the staff and *stampers* get to join in as well.  Today, I was moving a little slowly, but between Diane and I, we got almost everything put back where it goes.  Jan and I will finish most of it up tomorrow and then it will be on to even more exciting things!!

As I mentioned before, we had a *Treasure Hunt* as part of the Tri-County Quilt Merchants Assoc.  We changed up our clue part way through the Hop.....this was our last one.  Can you guess?

Whether you’re on the road or close to home, 
This little thing can help you to keep things sewn!

You can use this when you’re on the run,
And our polka dots are sure a lot of fun!

There’s needle, thread, snaps and buttons too.
And all tucked in this cute little *bag* for you!

What and where are we? 

Well, I guess the picture below might give it away, huh?  They didn't have that advantage, but everyone managed to find them....the retired guy was the *stamper* for the last hour or so, and he wanted to take one to the stamp station, but we wouldn't let him!!  These cute things are our Nifty Notion for the month.  And have you ever seen a sewing kit with so much good stuff in it?  It even has safety pins, buttons, and snaps, plus a seam ripper and tape measure!  And is the bag just too cute, or what!?!

Okay....I need to go put my feet up for a few....still have to make it through to the end of the week.  Back soon with even more fun!
