All About ME Blog Hop and a "Nutty" GIVEAWAY!

This giveaway contest is closed!
Thanks for commenting!

WELCOME to the "IT'S ALL ABOUT ME" blog hop!

Thanks to Amy Bradley who provided 
the fun pattern for us today.

 A shout out to Marlene over at Stitching by the Lake            
for cheering the blogging team on and 
to Madam Samm, at Sew we Quilt  for once again 
coaching us to more victories in stitches!



If you know me, you know I am a huge fan of 
The Ohio State Buckeyes

Fans are known for wearing Buckeye necklaces 
and having great times at football games and parties!
For those who don't know
a  BUCKEYE is a NUT
 so today... I'm a Little...NUTS!


Here I sit on our bar 
decked out in my team colors of scarlet and gray!


I hand embroidered the "I'm a little" 
and the face/dress details.
I drew my letters free hand.





The feather boa tickles me "scarlet"
when the Buckeyes win a game!
And trust me....when I light the Buckeye candle
the coffee mug has something
a bit stronger than coffee for game day revelry!   




Check out the "Cheer Gear" necklace.  
All ready for game day and another winning season!
The "Buckeyes" in my necklace are clay beads







And now I'm hanging around the 
"Buckeye Tree" that sits in the bar all year long!
GO BUCKS!


So here's to the IT'S ALL ABOUT ME
blog hop and for being one of the 


Another thing about ME is I love my followers

Kwilty Pleasures "giveaways"  


Leave me a message telling me

4 FQs in your team's colors...

  7. Yours is too cute. I have to admit I don't follow any particular team any more. My college team was the Univ. of North Texas which is green and white, but I was much more ino my high school team which was maroon and white. Of course being a native Texan, means at least one weekend a year I have to yell fir Texas over OU. Hmmmm maybe I should just be on team fabric which means I love all colors!!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love your "you!" And I think it is great you have so much fun following your team.

    ReplyDelete

  42. Love your piece!! Did you hear that a couple was pulled over in TN recently for what the police thought was marijuana symbols but was actually buckeyes. They, like you, were huge OH State fans.

    School colors? I am a transplant from IL (now in AL--Roll Tide!) so would have to pick orange and navy blue---but that works for Auburn and the Chicago Bears too. We support both AU and AL until they have to play ea other. Just like a transplant would!

    Well... I do not have any team I am totally dedicated to. I live in DC and I am not even crazy about the redskins....
    Both of my daughters went to William and Mary and I did go to a few of their football and basketball games. That was fun and probably the only games I cheered for "the tribe" they are green and gold.
