A Fresh Snow…Finally My Day…

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

Felted WoolAnd sadly.. I have nothing… literally, I hate to blame it on the move, but I have not been able to finish a single solitary thing for this hop.. When we got our things I was so excited to finally have everything again, but I forgot that perhaps my hubby would like his clothing, or I would like a better change of clothes, that the kitchen to needed to be unpacked. Over the years of living overseas, I have gotten slower in how I do things, and get them done, so unpacking has gone slowly.  I don’t even have my sewing machines up yet in my sewing room. I was lucky enough to have Joan from Moose Stash Quilting come for a day last week and she really got me in gear to get my sewing room up and running and over the weekend I managed to get my desktop in place. Then comes the process of having to transfer everything from the laptop to the desktop.. 

So, instead, Continue reading

A Fresh Snow Day 03 It’s Looking Rainy Today…

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

A Fresh Snow Blog HopHi Everyone, I would take rain, the little sprinkles falling on the ground, the dance of the leaves, grass, and ground enjoying the wet wonderful water. 

Today is the 3rd day of the A Fresh Snow Blog Hop and didn’t you just love the projects yesterday, oh my gosh, I was in total awe.  I am running terribly late this morning… I took a little nap after having gotten up this morning at 2:30am to write this post. I seem to be on a bedtime by 8pm agenda since moving back to the states and up by 2 – 3am.. At times tho my body just feels so tired that I’ll take a nap and that’s exactly what happened this morning.. So here I am back and forth this morning. Figured I’d get this done between naps.. so here we go…

A Fresh Snow Day 02 – Still No Snow :/

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

A Fresh Snow Blog HopHere we are in the middle of January, and we still have no snow… This is Colorado people, known for it’s infamous ski resorts, I live so close to them I can literally taste the snow on the top of Pikes Peak and yet… down at my house, there is sadly, still no snow… We did have a “pinch” of snow last Friday and were promised another inch over the weekend, but it never came. I really miss the snow when it’s not on the ground. It is different when you live in an area not known for snow, you don’t really expect snow to come, so when it does it’s a lovely surprise that amazes and astounds you at it’s sheer beauty. Who would think all that white everywhere could just makes things look so clean and quiet and astoundingly beautiful.

Last Friday, we had some beautiful projects in the blogs that were featured and I’m so looking forward to today’s featured bloggers, so without further ado, here is today’s schedule:

A Fresh Snow Day 01 – and sadly, no snow today here in CO :/

A Fresh Snow Blog Hop

A Fresh Snow Blog HopWell it’s still dark outside as I write this post this morning… and est time is 6:13 am… It’s very quiet here in the mornings, my hubby is still up in bed and I’ve got a few moments to get this post written very quickly for you.

I’m so excited you’ve stopped in today to visit for the first blog hop of the year. A Fresh Snow came from the idea for me when I ws working to get Wooly Block kits. I honestly had no intention of even participating in the event, but when I was sewing clothing the one fabric I loved working with was wool, then when we heard about the move to Colorado, that’s when I really decided that yep, I was going to participate, how lovely would it be to have a new quilt for my new home. Today isn’t my day and my project isn’t done, so I’ll be hopefully sewing on it all weekend long.. My friend Joan was here yesterday and it was so much fun meeting and chatting with her. She really got the everything in place for me to set my machines and desktop up, so I’m going to get that finished up this weekend.

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block 01 Released

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block Of The Month

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block Of The Month

Just released on Craftsy, Block 01 of Twas The Night Before Christmas.

For now, I’m going to note, this is the paid Block Of The Month, the cost for those of you who will ask is 5.00 per month. There are two files to download, the pdf, and a zip file that contains the machine embroidery and svg cutting files. If you don’t need the zip, just download the pdf. 🙂

You can turn in your finished block at the Flickr group for up to 60 days, to get the second block free. However, you can purchase the block for 5.00 for one month also. After 30 days, the cost of the blocks will go up to 7.50 each.

I’ve made a PInterest group for Twas The Night and a Facebook group called Seams To Be Sew Help for help with this quilt and my other patterns if you’d care to join it.

Block 02 will be released Continue reading

It’s Wooly Block Time.. Please Help?

Ruths Stitchery In Colorado Springs, COThe Wooly Block Event works mainly like the Row By Row Experience does, except instead of a row, you get a 8-inch block pattern.

Wooly Block‘s hibernation period begins December 16, so I need to ask you for your help. I’m close to finishing up the blocks I need for my project, but still won’t have enough.. If you can help by picking a kit up for me, I would greatly appreciate it. I’d really like to get some of the ones I really want, so I’m hopeful that those of you who follow me might be able to help me out here… The image you see above is the wooly block that comes from my nearest LQS.. Ruth’s Stitcheries. If your participating and would like this kit, I’ll trade it for one you can also get.

If you can get a kit, and your kit costs more than mine does, I’ll pay the difference, if your kit costs less than Ruth’s, you pay the difference.. so it’s all equal. 

If your not participating in the Wooly Block Adventure, but can get the kit, just let me know cost, tax, and shipping (most kits cost 2.64 to ship first class) and I’ll get you paid so you can pick it up.
