Phindy's Friday Challenge with a hop!

TGIF! Friday always means a new challenge at Phindy's Place challenge blog. This week's challenge is paper piecing. I really love to paper piece, but never think to do it. We are also celebrating one year of challenges on the Phindy's Challenge blog with a hop.


If you've just stumbled upon my blog, head to the Phindy's challenge blog to start at the beginning. If you've come from the very talented Dorcas' blog, you are in the right spot. The usual prizes are up for grabs, but in addition Phindy is generously offering a $10 gift certificate to one lucky hopper who collects the secret sentence along the hop.


Here's what your need to do: collect a word from each blog along the hop to make up the message, then post it in the comments on the Phindy's challenge blog  (which will be hidden until the hop is over!)  Hop is open until midnight (GMT) April 28th.
So this week, you have THREE chances to win: the blog hop, the random winner of the challenge and the pick of the week. So what are you waiting for? Get out paper and a pen and start collecting the words for the secret sentence. Now hop on over to the super talented Linda's blog and see what she paper pieced this week. 



Thanks so much for dropping by today.
