A Button/Ball Garland For Dotty Day!

Since my Button Ball garland has red in it, I'm linking this older post up to Rednesday at It's A Very Cherry World!

Happy Dotty Hop Day, girls! Every Tuesday I'll be posting something Dotty and I hope you will, too! Dotty lovers of blogland unite! And here's Polka Dot Pete welcoming you to the show! (Thanks to Jackie for naming him!)


Look what I made with all my little fabric covered cottage drops! It's a garland. I love it! My guys are so sweet. They asked, "Did you make that up?" Yes, I did! I'm an inventor!

I strung them all on some string with a button in between each one!

At first I thought I would try to establish some sort of pattern but that seemed too much like math so I just went with it!

There are Red and Pink dotty balls in the mix so I decided to show it to you on Dotty Day.

Making this garland made me feel happy. That's why I craft. If it doesn't make me feel happy, I don't do it! Here's the whole garland- about 32 balls. I am now making more balls at a furious rate! Well, as fast as the glue will let me!

Last weeks give away went by toooooo fast for most of you so this time I'll leave it up until Monday! For this week's give away I have a little hot Pink dotty towel for you. I know hot Pink isn't every one's cup of tea so you *have to tell me if you want it* when you comment. Congratulations to last weeks give away winner, Carol from Old Glory Cottage!

If you make your own Dotty post today, you can be entered in the give away twice. Be sure to tell me!

Well Happy Dotty Day to you too! I love it. I would love to get a pink dotty towel so enter me! I wish I had time today to post something dotty cause pretty much my whole world is polka-dotty! I love your new graphics and the whole new look. So cute!!! Keren is so wonderful, I just love her! I didn't forget about your washcloths either, just was gone for a few days and am trying to get organized! Boy, getting ready for a little vacation and coming home and getting reorganized from a vacation takes more time than the actual vacation. Now I'm thinking I need to crochet some dots on your washcloths, hmmm. . . .
Hugs,
Julie

Double yeah...I managed to "link up" too! I've copied your button and when I can see more clearly from this great sadness over Misha, I'll get the button up and running and start my camera clicking away for Dotty Day!
