Summer is here. (With a vengeance for some of us. 100+ degree days in Michigan? No thanks.) And with summer comes more time for hanging out and relaxing and indulging the little things we love to do. Hand stitching is the perfect summertime activity since it’s portable and won’t make you hot while you work!

Seems only fitting that we have a little blog hop to celebrate this activity! I’ve enlisted five other hand stitchers to share their favorite tips and tricks for hand stitching over the next week. AND as an added bonus, you have a chance to win a copy of my current book, The Hand Stitched Surface, at each blog stop.

The hop begins tomorrow but I wanted to make sure that you don’t miss anything so here’s the schedule:

Monday July 9 – Lisa Chin

Tuesday July 10 – Ana Sumner

Wednesday July 11 – Lyric Montgomery Kinard

Thursday July 12 – Libby Williamson

Friday July 13 – Allison Aller

Saturday July 14 – me! 🙂

Make sure to stop by each blog on her designated day to learn how these hand stitching mavens make their magic and to get into their drawing for a copy of The Hand Stitched Surface!

My tip and a very special goodie giveaway will be revealed on July 14 so be sure to come on back round my way so you don’t miss out!
