    Is anyone doing the hop and if so have you found any blocks, so far I have visited about 30 or more and not one block.

    I've found all the blocks. I started in the "A"s on the list of shops and found all of them by "M"s.

    Yes, the blocks are there. I have found all 12 already and so has alot of other board members. The blocks move around to. If you get all the bunnies you will get all the blocks. Alot of times you will go through alot of shops before you find one and then there are times you can hit 3-5 in a row.

    I found 130 bunnies and no blocks.
    It was my first hop so maybe I overlooked them?

    Go look at your "visited shops" it will show you the downloads for the blocks.

    Does anyone have the blocks saved from last month? Time got away from me and I missed 5 or 6 of them.
    Thanks,

    I don't understand why so many people are having a problem this month with the Hop. :?: If you go to "visited shops" it should be there next to the shops.

    I finally found all 12 but it took me 97 bunnies just to find 2 of the blocks. The next day I started over and finally found the rest of them but it took over 130 bunnies to find the 12. Also, had to repeat all of the first 97 over again. It was rather discouraging & very time consuming. Since the purpose of the hop is to get us to visit the sponsors & spend money at their site, it's kind of counterproductive. If I'm busy hopping, I'm not sewing. If I'm not sewing, I don't need to buy more stuff that I can't use while I'm spending my time hopping. JMHO.

    i have found blocks. and did down load a couple. Is there a theme to the blocks or are they just an added bonus for visiting a shop?

    when they have the blocks, it seems the more you do at 1 sitting the faster they come up! When I only do a few each day, it seems that NONE of them come up!I wait til the end, then go to shops visited(member area) and download all into a file.It's easier that way. Plus if they goofed up (DEC), perhaps they'll have already corrected it! I'll leave 2nd place open for you,I'm shootin' for 1st! LOL!!!!

    At the end of the month the finishing directions will be available. On the top of fabshophop page click on sampler blocks. These are for a 'star search sampler'.

    I am doing this and finding the blocks does seem slower than in past months. I have two so far and visited 38 shops. I like to do this when I'm taking a break from sewing or paperwork.

    I started at "B" and did about half of the shops on about the 3'd day of March. I found most of the blocks. Then I did a lot more shops the next day and found the rest of the blocks. I think I found them all before I got to the O's. I'm a little obsessive so I had to finish the hop by the 5th of March. Now I can relax.

    I have visited 152 shops and only have 8 of the blocks and only like 8 and one of them is not good and 4 of them do not the green bunny sign that I can find not on first page. I went to visited shops and that is were I got the information that I have about the 8 blocks. Is there some where that list all 12 blocks so will know the ones I do not have. Do I need to revisit the shops that I have already visited to find blocks??

    I must have had beginners luck, because I got found all 12 blocks and it took about 90 bunnies. I started at N. There are a few shops where I did not find the bunny because I could not find a clue. All of the blocks are star patterns. I downloaded all of them.
