    shophop has me frustrated this month

    i am so frustrated with the fabshophop this month-
    i have all but 3 shops bunnies located-and those 3----man, i've spent 1/2 an hour to an hour on each one clicking on link after link with no luck...
    gateway quilts gave a clue of 'love the smell of jasmine'= i found plenty of jasmine links---but no bunnie----
    peggy annes and sew-sisters----they just....oh i'm to the point that i don't think the bunnies are even there---sew-sisters i found an april bunny but no march bunny---
    gosh- i'm so 'over it!'
    with less than a week to go---ugh!
    anyone else sharing my problems? or is it just me???
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Yes, I have two shops where I have not been able to find the bunny. Sorry, right now I can't remember which ones. I did write them down...somewhere. One is Common Threads, I can't find the other. I have also clicked on and looked at every section I can click on those two shops. Yes, it is very frustrating!!! I wonder if it is their way of cutting down the people who are eligible for the drawings??

    I do "hate" that website. It goes around in circles. I did find the bunny. Let's see if I can replicate my steps. . . . OH WOW! Maybe she got some complaints. A couple of lines under her FabShop Hop orange bunny graphic on the home page is this line

    NEWEST KIT-FREE MAGAZINE AND PATTERN: JASMINE. Check it out Jasmine.

    Click on the second Jasmine in that line and suddenly there it is. I do dread going to this website every time it is in a hop.

    I can't find the time to look for all the bunnies! I would rather be sewing than looking at all those sites on the computer. :-s

    I've found all but Thousands of Bolts fabrics, and I bet I've spent at least 2 hours looking!

    Thanks for the hints. I agree some of the sites just go around in circles and others I think I looked at EVERY link on their page and never did find the March bunny.

    I won a Brother 1500 quilting machine finding the bunnies back when the prizes were new machines. I got a call that informed me I won, the machine was shipped to me. Simple and honest. It's worth the effort to play.
    Got fabric?

    When I first started the Fabric Hop, there were three. Annilee's Treasure Hunt and another one that featured a worm, I think. I liked those two better because there were fewer shops! I think 100 is about the max I would ever want to find, and I believe the Fabric Hop is past that now, since it's the main player these days. I enjoyed seeing new fabric and learning about new shops, but after 100 sites and getting frustrated over the ones that hide the bunny too well, I quit. I wish they did them more frequently with fewer shops...and more chances to win!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I've won a lot of $10 GCs from various shops over the years. I recently one a second prize and received some nice fabric. I try not to do the hop every month. I always wander over to every store's clearance section and end up spending more money than I need to. Lord knows, my stash is big enough, BUT....

    I've never done any of these contests. Where do you find the rules? How many of them are there? Like I need to spend more time at the computer!

    I'm getting really frustrated with the shop hops, not because I can't find the bunnies, but because the free quilt blocks keep "moving" around. I don't know about the rest of you, but I just barely can find the time to do the shop hop in the first place, and I surely don't have time to go back and check already visited (and bunny found) shops to try and get the blocks I'm missing. When they first started moving the free blocks around you were able to get the full quilt pattern with all blocks and setting instructions if you found even just one of the block patterns. That did not stop me from completing the full shop hop, but the "moving" blocks will. I'm wondering if anyone else shares my frustration with this issue??
    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

    I could not find Quilters Corner or Craft Connection. I think you only need to find 140 shops to be eligible for the prizes this time. Check the rules. Sometimes, only when they have a bonus prize, do you need to find ALL of them. I haven't won anything from them in quite a few years. Won some fabric, and a few $10 certificates. Each month I see one, I think "I'm not going to do it this time", but then I like the pattern you get when you hop, and then there is the thought that I have been doing it for so many years, I might miss something!!

    Quilters Corner has a link on the home page for the BOM page with the bunny.

    Craft Connection has a link above the bunny on the homepage which will take you to the fabrics page. Scroll down below all of the fabrics and you will find the bunny.

    There have been a couple of time that I actually wrote the shop and complained about their "hints" when they were impossible to find. They usually responded with the bunny trail or location or actually fixed it when it was missing. I don't hop anymore either. I would rather be sewing.

    I absolutely agree. I've won $10 gift certificate 3 times and a $100 one time.

    This remark is in regards to "the hopping is worth it" post. I didn't get it attached.

    If you go to the shops visited page they are listed there next to the names of the shops.
