Lazy Girl Designs Presents the ‘Day Z Dozen’ Blog Hop

The Hop Has Started!
‘Hop’ over to today’s Day Z Dozen feature HERE.

Lazies, I’m excited to announce the
‘Day Z Dozen’ Blog Hop.
The fun starts on Monday and here’s the skinny…

What is the Day Z Dozen blog hop? It’s a ‘show’ of new projects from a number of designers.  ‘Hop’ online each day to see a new project and hear the story of the design, as told by the designer.

Is there a theme for the Day Z Dozen blog hop? Yes! A few months ago I had the chance to play with the new ‘DayZ Deux’ fabric collection from LakeHouse Dry Goods (floral fabric shown below).That was before the fabric was widely available. Now, however, it is available. The fabric is shipping to stores or already in stock. So Holly (LakeHouse) and I called the girls (see below) and told them we would like to have a little show of the projects we made a few months ago.

How does the Day Z Dozen blog hop work? ‘Hop’ online and visit our blog each day from March 5 – 16, 2007, as we share a new project as told by the designer.

What projects are in the Day Z Dozen blog hop? Hey, that’s a secret! You’ll have to tune in each day to see what’s new.

Who is participating? We have dubbed ourselves the ‘Day Z Dozen’, and you’ll have a chance to meet all of these fabulous Lazies, oops – DayZies, and hear the story behind their beautiful creations.

    Good Afternoon Joan!

    I can’t believe today is the day that the blog hop begins! I have had so much fun getting ready for it. I love the logo and the name of our blog and I look forward to seeing how all of the designers interpret Holly’s DayZ Deux fabric. Thank you very much for including me in this endeavor! Let the fun begin!

    I would love to blog hop. I am also looking for a nice
    jacket pattern. Any suggestions? I would love to make
    a safari jacket in time for the Long Arm Quilting Expo.

    So, I will also be jumping on and off of the hop.

    Have fun!

    Checking what’s new on the DayZ Dozen Blog Hop is a perfect way to start the day.
    The vivid colors and fresh designs are as good as a cup of coffee to make me ready to face the day.
    Thanks Joan for this great idea!
