Quilt Designer Blog Hop

I am very excited to be participating in my first Blog Hop!

Myself and the eleven designers listed below will be participating in a
12 Days of Christmas blog hop which officially starts November 9th
and ends 12 days (of coarse) later on November 20th.

Each day we will all blog about a different topic. Each designer will have a project posted on her designated day.

Mine is the 2nd day of Christmas which will be Tuesday November 10th. Topic for that day is: Special food/cookie you made as a kid or was a tradition, plus a recipe.

However, to get the fun started we will be having a "Guess the Designer From Their Baby Picture" contest. On Wednesday, November 4th each of the 12 participating designers will post a baby picture of a designer (someone other than themselves) on their blog. You will have until Saturday November 7th to make your guess as to who is who. So on Wednesday hop on along from blog to blog to check out each picture.

At the end of the twelve days there will be a grand prize drawn randomly from all of the people who commented on each of the 12 designer's blogs.

You must comment on all 12 blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize worth $360.00.

(That is pretty grand!)

Here are the participating designers and their given date:

Nov. 9th. Gudrun from GE Designs:
Nov. 10th. Sandy from Pieces from my Heart :

  9. Sandy, I hope I post correctly this time--seems I posted incorrectly over at another blog of the designers in this group.

    The little girl next to the antique TV I'm guessing is Kari Carr from New Leaf?

    Hope I'm right--lol!

    looking forward to seeing what the Cross Country Christmas Hop is like.

    Thanks for a fun contest!

    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

    Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline. You have to make a time schedule for yourself and stick to it. There will be a time frame of course for any job you take up and you have to fulfill that project within that time frame.

    There are many things that can be done working from home. A few of them is listed below that will give you a general idea about the benefits of this concept.

    This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

    Freelance can be in different wings. Either you can be a freelance reporter or a freelance photographer. You can also do designing or be in the advertising field doing project on your own. Being independent and working independently will depend on your field of work and the availability of its worth in the market. If you like doing jewellery designing you can do that at home totally independently. You can also work on freelancing as a marketing executive working from home.

    Internet related work
    This is a very vast field and here sky is the limit. All you need is a computer and Internet facility. Whatever field you are into work at home is perfect match in the software field. You can match your time according to your convenience and complete whatever projects you get. To learn more about how to work from home, contact us today on workfromhome.otr214422@gmail.comand our team will get you started on some excellent work from home projects.

    Diet food
    Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

    Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
