    Hi, I just did the fabshophop for the first time in February.

    When I logged in today for the March hop, all of the cupcake patterns were there but there was also pdf with finishing instructions for a All Around the Neighborhood quilt. Were the blocks part of an earlier hop, perhaps January?

    Likewise, this month, we can find blocks for the Star Search Sampler. Will the instructions for this be posted in the May hop (two month delay)?

    Still trying to figure this out. Thanks a lot.

    I don't think the delay is that long. The finishing for the cupcakes should be on in a day or two.

    It was from January. I'm guessing they will post the instructions for the march one like they have been doing for other months. I think it should be posted right after the March hop is over.

    The reason the All Around the Neighborhood instructions are still there is because of changes to it-they left it up longer because of that.

    Okay, been living under a rock I guess, what is a "shophop"? Really, I have heard of them but not quite figured them out - do you literally go to all of those shops or is it an internet search? confused ---thanks for your assistance.

    Thanks very much for the replies. All Around the Neighborhood is cute - wish I'd joined it earlier!

    I don't think they'll be a finishing for the cupcakes as they seem to be meant to be stand alone blocks... not 100% sure about this but that's the impression I get.

    I never finished the neighborhood sampler, due to illness, so I don't have all the blocks. What is on member area is how to put together all the blocks. Would appreciate it very much if someone would be willing to share? Especially the yellow/pink houses, the fence and the big blue house.

    I have won two months in a row. It is worth it if you have the time to do it! It is nice to visit shops that you wouldn't have seen unless they did this. Some really nice fabric.

    I've won almost every time. But those $10 gift certs end up costing me more $$ and a lot of the time, on something I'd never buy otherwise. I haven't even used almost half of the ones I won.

    Yes!! I "won" the last two months but couldn't find anything at the websites of the two shops I won at to justify a purchase just to save the $10. I feel bad about this but I don't want to spend money to save... even if they offered free shipping along with the $10, it might have worked out but the sites I won at didn't have anything I wanted for those prices. Very disappointing. Hopefully I'll win fabric at some point...

    I would love to win something! This is my first shop hop and I'm having a lot of fun. I've already found all the blocks but haven't yet found enough bunnies to qualify for the grand prize drawing. Maybe I'll find a few before bed. :)

    Do you have the 3 blocks from All Around the Neighborhood: Shuttered House; Squatty Pine and The House with the Red Door?

    I have the fence if you need, send me how to get it to you and if you found the pink yellow and blue, I also need those. Do you have the sqatty pine?

    I won once a $10 certificate - for a company going out of business .. had to use the certificate within a couple days. Needless to say, I didn't use it at all

    Wow! I never even thought of that! You do have to be careful as you would probably be out of the money if they were in bankruptcy. I got a few emails reminding me that I had won and to use the credit before it expired. Glad I didn't bother now that you've posted this. I have to remember to be careful out there.
