Tickled Pink Give Away!

I would love to welcome any new visitors to my blog from the Grow Your Blog Party. Vicki at 2 Bags Full has been so generous to help us meet each other and gain new followers. I became fascinated with blogging after visiting all the blogs on "Where Bloggers Create" a couple years ago and being so inspired. I thought "I want to do that!"  I hope I have something to offer that might appeal to someone else or spark their imagination and creativity. Pictured above, are some dishtowels I dyed and appliqued and added a ruffle to. I enjoy having handwork projects to work on in front of the TV. I also enjoy "treasure hunting" in thrift shops and garage sales. The junior baking kit and the heart shape vase, above, were fun vintage finds. These valentine-y dish towels are my Give-Away gift for this Blog Party. All you need to do to enter is to leave me a comment. I will announce the winner on February 1st!

I also like to sew things for my home and little gifts for others. I found this pattern by Murial Anderson at the "Material Girls" Quilt Shop in Salt Lake City when I was there this Christmas.The sentiment is so true!

Quilting is my passion. I love COLOR. I love picking fabrics and I love creating something out of nothing. AND, I love all the friends I've made through quilting. Quilters really are the nicest people! This was a quilt I recently finished.

In my quilting group, we have a sweet tradition of exchanging quilted post cards each month. I do think Christmas and Valentines Day are the funnest themes to work with!

So you may wonder why my blog is called "Tied Up In Ribbon". I have always loved ribbon and gift wrapping, and when I was thinking of a name, that popped out. I'm afraid it doesn't quite reflect all of my interests, but once you commit to a name, it's yours for the duration:-) Thank you so much for visiting me. I can't wait to visit you too! I hope your come back soon and good luck with the drawing!  -Derrith

Oh my stars! I found you through Vicki's party and I am soooo glad. Your quilts are fabulous & I adore decorating trees (I have 5 at my house!). It's been so much fun wandering around your blog. I look forward to seeing more. :)

Your blog title caught my eye. I too love ribbons. One of my favorite crafts is ribbon embroidery, followed closely by quilting, especially crazy quilting.
You do a beautiful job on your crafting!Very tidy and neat too. I look forward to seeing more. ~Diana
