Let's Get Acquainted New Blogger Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"! The wait is over it is finally my week in the blog hop. I have made lots of new good friends. Thank you Beth from plume and june this has been a great experience meeting other bloggers and learning more about being one with terrific tips and tricks from seasoned veteran of the internet. Unbelievable resources from the best. I have enjoyed the last seven weeks tremendously. Again, Thank you!

So what do I blog about at "In The Boon Docks"? Everything! I will give you a little sampling of my life here! I hope you enjoy it!

This beautiful buck stood maybe 30 feet away as I snapped pictures of him eating his dinner off my back porch!

"Rusty" the rooster is a free ranger. He has 2 hens and 2 chicks that run our outdoor property.

We have three hens that should be laying starting in August for fresh eggs! These ladies live in a hen house built for them raised from chicks by me and David.

We grow a garden and help my husband's parents with their garden. I am a picker! I pick beans, cherries and anything else they ask me. I love my in-laws very much! I also freeze fruits and vegetables for the Winter months. I love canning jams and jellies! I did 16 - 1/2 pints of peach jam on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

"Quilters Candy Unwrapped". Is a look into todays fabric lines and what you can create with 2 1/2" blocks. It is a monthly series with giveaways provided by the blog's sponsor Kim from the Fat Quarter Shop.

"Stitch on Prints" is type of embroidery using Aurifil 12 wt. thread on printed fabric. Hand stitching to create textures and highlight focal points. Then using them in bags, pouches, mug rugs, mini quilts, and sharing. This monthly series is sponsored by Aurifil with giveaways.

I love participating in blog hops and giving things away!

I love fabric and sewing!

I love piecing quilts and will be learning more about the quilting part in the Fall. These are a few of the quilts I have made!
