CCRAL Giveaway Winners For Sept 07 + Calibre Art For Sept 14

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongHello Again Everyone… it takes me quite some time to draw the names and notify all the winners, but today I did manage to get started on it early in the day. So, here are the winners for last Thursday, September 07, 2017 and Calibre Art Winners for September 14, 2017.

Let me note, the Calibre Art giveaways are a 50% off coupon. At Amazon, some of these mats are already on sale at 50% off, and you do get the additional 50% off of the current sale price, so a mat that might cost 100.00 discounted by 50% off is around 50.00, plus your additional discount of 50% off makes that mat just $25.00.

Several of you have passed on the mats, and that’s fine, Continue reading

Sunbonnet Sue In Egypt and India Release Delayed

India & Egypt Sue

India & Egypt SueI can’t believe I have to do this, but I have to delay the release of Sue in Egypt and India for a week. I just haven’t had the time to work on the pattern. I did get it stitched out, and the testing went well, I just don’t have the time it takes to write the pattern up. I won’t have the time either, with the movers due here Thursday, it’s just going to be too busy of a week. I will shoot for next Monday the 24th as the release date. We’ll be staying in a hotel by then and I should have the time to finish the pattern.

Meet My Friend Tommy..

Tommy Turtle

Tommy TurtleThis is my friend Tommy. He’s a Turtle… Fun and Flirtatious, Slow and sure, but gets the job done. I’m sure we all feel the same way sometimes, I know I do.

So I thought you’d like a treat for this weekend only, I’m offering Tommy the Turtle in a 9-inch block pattern for you to download.

He’s also available in a purchased version with a 12-inch and 15-inch block size along with the machine embroidery and cutting files. I personally think the 15-inch would be a great pillow block for a baseball player.

So Many Things Going On, I forgot to Post..

stbs-2016F-Two Hearts Tweeting with border-medium

stbs-2016F-Two Hearts Tweeting with border-mediumI have been a busy little beaver of late, before ya know it, I might have missed Groundhog Day if I wasn’t looking… This year, winter just seems to be taking it’s toll on my little ole body.. Cold after Cold, flu after flu, and the sneezing is driving me batty.. I got to thinking about Ground Hog day today and realized that I might sneeze it right on by… LOL I know summer people probably look forward to Groundhog Day, because it means that their might only be six weeks of winter left. Traditionally, I like winter to go on as along as it possibly can. I am just not into the heat of summer, in fact I’m more prone to stay inside in the summer than I am any other part of the year.
