    the 'threads of time' site if you can not locate it try sending them an email (contact us) and ask- often when asked shops will tell you or at least give you some hints
    i too get the server error message from cotton candy---sometimes shops cease to exist after signing up to participate-which was done months ago.

    That was the two that I was having problems with. Google the cotton candy site and go to it that way.i emailed and told them that the link wasn't working right but it must still be "broke", lol! And for the other site look for Michael Miller Accounts. Hope this helps.

    Threads of time...Look for Michael Miller fabrics...he has a fabric called "accounts". I'm down to four homestead hearth, jody houghton,
    purple moose and of course cotton candy quilts.

    After doing these hops for a few years, I've learned not to worry if I can't find all the bunnies in the first few days. Sometimes all I find is last month's bunny or none at all. I think it's because the shop owners don't always think to change their bunny for a new month. (Face it, if I worked in a quilt shop with all that beautiful fabric, checking my website would be low on my priorities!) Go back in a couple of days and I'm sure you'll find it. But an e-mail to the shop is a good idea because I think it reminds them to check their website and make sure it's updated.

    I sent two e mails in Feb to the fab shop site thru the contact us link and never received a reply. I am very annoyed with them.

    I haven't started my shop hop this month. I have learned to wait a week or so to give the shop owners time to update their info. Last month I tried the first few days and noted there were several stores not involved, but were listed. I waited another week and either the listings were deleted or the shops updated their information. It made my shop hop a lot easer and I enjoyed the process more.

    Haven't gotten to those sites yet but I swear I've tried everything on Hang Up Company and still can't find the bunny. Always have trouble with that company. Any hints?

    I haven't got all of mine done but I did look up Cotton Candy quilts and the hint was "fabric" so I clicked on the menu for her store then clicked fabric and it came up. Hope that helps.

    Look for gifts under the emblem for the shop hop on page 1 then then click to "mouse pads" that was the hint.

    Thank you for the info...Got it. I looked at the mouse pad but got to it from a different starting point and it wasn't there. Following your instructions, I got the bunny.

    Last month I went thru 50 shops before I found a single pattern bonus. Then I started finding them, all but the last three & found them in the last batch of shops. I did every single one that time. It really gets annoying with some of them. I even found the bunnies at some of the hardest shops but haven't done too many this month.
    Live everyday so that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says oh crap she's up.

    Hello everyone! Just wanted to pop in and apologize for that clue- this was our first time participating in an online shop hop like this, so we're still learning. I will definitely try to do better next time!
