Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop 2022

Welcome to the final day of the 2022 Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange Blog Hop, hosted by Carol of: Just Let Me Quilt. My project is not completed, but posting anyway with the progress. It was planned to be completed, but health reasons slowed the progress down. Hoping that you have visited and enjoyed all of the wonderful projects from the other blog hoppers. The quilt pattern is from Pam at Heartspun Quilts, and is called Glad Tidings. Guess what- this little quilt is made from my fabric stash. That is always a good thing. This is actually the 2nd quilt that I have made with that pattern. Thanks to Carol for hosting. Here is a list of today's blog hoppers.

Happy Halloween 2022!

Happy Halloween to all. We have been getting some rain, and that was usually typical when my twin sister and I were children. 'Did not stop us from wanting to go trick-or-treating, though. This is a cute eyeball door hanger from a free pattern by: Carla of Creatin'in the Sticks (tutorial on Thermoweb). The pattern is called I'm Watching You, and is perfect for the season. It measures 6" square, and my hanger is actually three strips of gros-grain ribbon braided for strength. 'Did not have any wide ribbon, so this is a make-do idea. Thank you Carla for this free pattern. My daughter actually has green eyes, just not bloodshot, lol. My own eyes are green with brown, otherwise known as hazel. If you are out and about this afternoon, please be careful and mindful of all around you.

12 years of blogging!

Wow, today marks 12 years for Homespun Hannah's Blog. Way back in 2010, I wondered if anyone would even notice this blog. What a wonderful surprise that many of you notice and follow. All of the sweet comments are so uplifting, especially with all of the drama in my life in the past three years.

In the beginning, this blog was about primitive style clothing. It evolved into modern stitching, and then quilting. All three are still of interest, although quilting is front-and-center nowadays. Occasionally a bit of other crafting, such as wood and paper sneak in. Sometimes a bit of cooking (not my strongsuit, lol) even slips in. You all always stick with me, and every one of you is very much appreciated. Blogging is truly a blessing to me. So many awesome stitchers, quilters and crafters are out there! Reading your blogs is always fun and interesting. I actually learn a lot from you all. Blogging is "outdated"? Not in my opinion. 'Could not do this at all without you. Sending heartfelt thanks and gratitude. Here's to many more years of blogging, friends.

Candy Corn is finished!

Candy Corn is a table runner pattern designed by Trina Kirkvold. The pattern example is larger than mine, as I did not have quite enough fabrics. This was my project for the recent Gremins, Goblins and Ghouls Blog Hop. 'Not usually a fan of ric-rack, but it compliments this pattern well. This ric-rack is not as wide as the example, but it does still peep out from along the sides. The free pattern can be found at: Isn't it a super cute pattern? Here are this table runner's stats:

♦ dimensions: 12" X 43"

♦ fabrics: 100% cotton fabrics, all but one from my stash (yay for stash-busting!)

♦ backing: solid black (could not get a good photo)

♦ batting: Warm N' Natural©

♦ quilting: machine-stitched walking foot diagonal pattern

♦ binding: solid black, machine and hand-stitched
