Decorate the tree, or not, it’s entirely up to you. The free pattern is the 7×9 size, but it’s also available for purchase in the 15-inch size.

Christmas Characters 12

Christmas Characters 12Good Morning Everyone. Thank you for taking the time to visit this post to download your free pattern. I’m having an odd problem, it seems that there were 284 downloads of the free pattern yesterday, but only 227 page visits. You might not think of this as odd, but I do… and I am NOT happy. Part of my reason for not using Craftsy as the download page is because I want people to visit my posts. This has to mean to me that the direct download page is being shared versus people actually visiting my blog. I do not want to deny those who come here and are not sharing the post the ability to get there patterns freely, but having 57 people download without having visiting this post bothers me greatly. So I ask you, PLEASE, be respectful of anyone who offers you a  FREE pattern. These patterns take time to make, they take up valuable resources. I do NOT use free artwork, I have paid for the artwork that is used in my patterns, and I would hope people would respect that they are getting good quality patterns with legitimate artwork used. If this trend continues, how this event works next year will change drastically. I do not mind if you share the link to this post, but please don’t share the direct download link.

The next part of this post deals with how this event works… Please take a moment and READ the following…. it concerns how downloads work for this event.

12 Days of Presents – Day 02

Santa Moon 2

Santa Moon 2Here we are on day 02 of 12 Days of Presents. I loved hearing your comments about day 01’s angel. I am so happy you liked her. I can’t wait to see your creations and I hope you’ll send me photos.

Today’s free pattern is a Santa. Many moons ago, I created Santa Moon 01 and it’s been sitting on Craftsy now for the last two years. I updated this pattern over the weekend simply because I knew I’d be releasing this new one. I had originally offered part of that pattern as a free pattern, so today I’m offering the new one also as a partial free pattern.

Silhouette Nativity-02

12 Days of Presents is finally here and today was just not going to work out as a good day to start this with. Last night my internet went out just as I was writing the post, it was half way done and boom, no internet… I kept watching all day in between errands and such to see if it had come back on and only noticed it was back on about an hour or so ago now, so I got the patterns for today uploaded and am now writing this post as quickly as possible in case it goes out again.

I Love Love Love this pattern, and the full set. It has been a sheer delight watching it come together and I’m happy to present you with one of the beautiful patterns in this series.

Christmas Blocks 01-09

So today, it’s been a busy day for moi…. How about you? I am busily finishing up the patterns for 12 Days this week and sewing in the evening to finish the wedding gift for my niece, but I am worried it won’t be done, so today picked up a backup gift while at Costco in case I don’t finish… I can quickly do something with those and have them done just in case…

So, today I went to the DMV… and survived.. no falling flat on my face today, I parked in a spot with none of those parking stopper thingies, and was there at 7:30am… Already, there were about 20 people in line 30 minutes before they were due to open. Continue reading

I still can’t lift anything heavy, but I know that will come in time again. So, I have been working to get my sewing room cleaned up and ready to hit the sewing machine hopefully later in the week.

How about all of you? With Thanksgiving just four days away, I’ve a little treat for you in this post today along with the release of block 7 in Twas The Night Before Christmas.
