Cupcake Of The Month – May and TTNBC Blocks 11 and 12 Released…

TTNBC-11

Today’s release is Twas The Night Before Christmas Blocks 11 and 12 and I’m also releasing Cupcake Of The Month – May… Shocking I know that I could be so early on a block not really due before the 15th of May, but May is a very busy month for me, so I’m releasing it today to have it … out of the way I guess you could say. 🙂

Blocks 11 and 12 were actually uploaded Saturday night to Craftsy, but because I don’t like posting on weekends, I simply announced it in the Facebook groups for Seams To Be Sew and decided to post today about the release.

The Cupcake of the Month for May is a free block pattern. I’ve made it available on Continue reading

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block 10

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block 10

Its been a busy week for me, how about you? I spent last week trying to get this pattern written up, it really doesn’t seem like it would be that complicated, but I added some additional shape keys in each of the embroidery shapes so it might be easier to tell which shapes are the actual embroidery shapes for those of you who are doing hand embroidery. I liked this so much I will go back and do it to the other 9 patterns so far in this series as I do believe it makes it easier for you to know those shapes. These patterns have so many especially small shapes I think it really needs to be done.

There are some changes to the block of the month 2018 page also. Continue reading

3 More Continuous Line… and TTNBC Block 09 Released…

TTNBC-09

Sorry, everyone, I was determined to get the TTNBC Block 09 pattern released the other day then got stuck at the car repair all day on Tuesday. I sat there waiting for my car to be fixed and ended up getting a rental car until the next day.

Either or, I worked on it all day yesterday to finish and finally got it done. In the meantime, I did upload the Continuous Line patterns to the bundles each day for those of you who purchased the bundle, if you haven’t downloaded them since you purchased you may want to go and do that. The last 2 patterns will be released tomorrow and Monday for the bundles, and Monday will be the last day for the free patterns on my blog along with my project for Island Batik.

So, let’s get down to the nitty and the gritty…

TTNBC-08The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
gave the lustre of midday to objects below, is block 08 of Twas The Night Before Christmas. Isn’t it a beautiful block?

Much like the first block in some ways but I love the night sky, the snow falling, and the additional trees that the artist added to the block. I do not think it was easy for him to come up with artwork for the lines in this part of the story.

This is the Flickr Reward block.

In other news…. Continue reading

stbs-2017 B7bt-Well it’s been nearly two weeks since the doctor let me remove the cast. I’m happy about how my arm is healing and can almost bend it in the “L” shape again.

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block Of The Month

I should have written this page long ago, but it’s done now, so should help you know what has been released and hasn’t. I will keep it updated with each release of the various blocks.

This year I’m taking on two blocks of the month projects. Originally these were scheduled to be one year block of the month projects, but I realize now, they are going to have to be two-year projects. I will, however, try to finish the Canadian Sue and Sam in one year.

The first is a continuation of last years Sue and Sam Travel the World, but this year they are traveling the USA and Canada. Each state and province will be done.

The second is a paid block of the month featuring the story of Twas The Night Before Christmas.

This page is here to let you see what’s been released during the year, and what the guidelines are for the year.
