This blog event will be my 4th overall participation in a Halloween hop, but my second hosted here at my blog.

The theme this year is called Eerie Nights, and their are no real what I’ll call guidelines in regards to what you can make. I think you know by now I like to keep things simple.

So, here ya go, these are the requirements this year for Eerie Nights.

Oops, I overslept, but Perfect Pairs – Peas and Carrots Is Released..

Peas and CarrotsMost kids either dislike peas, or spinach, as a kid myself, I was not fond of peas at all. I can still remember the days where my mom would serve them, and I would stack them in the window sill while everyone else would eat, then later take and put them in the trash. I’m not sure if my family ever caught on to my little shenanigans with the peas, but when I think about it today, I have myself a good little laugh.. If I have peas tho, they need to be fresh.. I always loved spinach.. and carrots.. 🙂

This pattern is extremely easy to put Continue reading

It’s Summer and I have a new Sensation.. :)

Summer SensationsI still have that Beach Boys song in my head from when I was writing my first post last Thursday for this blog hop.. Git Around, Git Around, I Get Around… I’m still waking up, so I’m going to keep my post pretty brief today.

I’d like to take a moment and thank all the wonderful bloggers who came along for the ride these last four days. Thank you so much in having a Summer Sensation with me.

As usual, I kept my project small, I didn’t really want to get swamped in anything to daunting for this hop, after all, this summer for me has been flying by so fast, and I have done more sewing this summer than I have in the last four years since I got back into quilting, so I kept it small and in the end, had to remake it anyway.

Sam In Japan and Greece Released

stbs-japan-greece

Sam In Japan and Greece are released today and my sincerest apologies that this post is so late in the day. I’ve mentioned before I won’t release a pattern until I know it stitches out correctly and I needed to finish up my stitching on the blocks. Here we are now into the 7th month of the year in Sunbonnets. Today’s release marks the 14th Free block to be offered in this series and the 12th Flickr Reward block release.

Next Months Free Release Is Sue and Sam In Antartica. The FlickR Reward block will be the Australian block and let me just say I was pretty surprised. I really thought Australia was going to take it from the very start of the poll.

All in all, it was a pretty close race, but Antartica just had a bit of an edge and stayed that way thru the whole two weeks of voting.

stbs-August Poll-2016-0718-001I am caught up with FlickR rewards, so if you haven’t received a coupon in your email, please re-submit it.
