I have so much to say today, I’m not sure where to start… it was a busy weekend… Frank was finally home long enough that we managed to get all the rest of the giveaways from the Row Along and Enter If U Dare all squared away… The labels are made and the postman will pick them up today. I’m sorry some of you have had to wait, he’s had some really long hours of late and it’s not going to stop anytime soon, we just lucked out that one of the engineers couldn’t work this past weekend. With my hand the way it has been, I couldn’t do it myself either. I will be at the doctor tomorrow, so hopefully, I will have some good news on removing this cast. I’ve still got a wedding gift to finish for next month and I am worried I am not going to get it finished.
Next month, starting December 01, 2017 is the start of 12 Days of Christmas. If you’ve been with me for the last four years that I have done this, you’ll remember it’s a fun time of the year. I give away a pattern a day for the 12 weekdays of December. (no weekends) Two years ago, Janeen at Quiltart and I started doing this as a together event. She also has done a 12 Days of Christmas event on her blog for at least the last four years and it could even be longer than that. Janeen and I did our patterns as a combined project last year, you may remember
My apologies for getting this out late… My desktop’s power pack went bad this past Wednesday and I can’t replace it until next week, so I’m currently sitting here using my laptop. Fortunately for me, I back up my files to Dropbox and Google drive, so I am able to do some work while I wait for the power pack to arrive.
In the meantime, I can finally draw the winners for Enter If U Dare…
I dared to enter… LOL
and then I broke my wrist bone…
but I am able to show you a little of what I was doing
because I had already started my project.
So come on in, and see what I’ve been up to…
Today is the last day of Enter If U Dare… I’m sad… and at the same time, overjoyed to have seen so many wonderful and cool projects.
I wish to thank the bloggers who participated this year. Your inspiration and creativity are boundless. Taking on my little bonus patterns also was so much fun to see what you did with them. I was amazed and astounded at the very cute projects you came up with and what you did with the patterns. A big shout out to the new bloggers who participated, we had several in this blog hop, some who had never participated in a blog hop before. I hope it inspired you to perhaps host your own (be sure you send me an invite) or participate again in another.
Coming at the first of December…
My Annual 12 Days of Christmas event.
A pattern a day for 12 Days in December.

I have seen some really amazing projects so far this year and hope you have to. Isn’t it amazing how people can year after year find fun and inspiring things to do? I know for me, it’s quite enjoyable to see how we grow each year. As a kid, there were never so many imaginative things for holidays, and today you can seriously go crazy, decorating everything from your lawn, to your car, to even your pets dress… I’m always amazed at the new things people come up with.
On Today’s Schedule, we have for you to see…

As some of you know I’ve been trying to get these files for Sue and Sam released all week.
I ran into an issue when finishing up the pattern for Sue. I realized that the key for the shapes was wrong. This would have been a big problem for you when you pieced her together. Not only did I have to fix that, but the SVG files also needed to be fixed.
I finally have the patterns ready and I can get them released.
Canada should be released next week along with the next Twas The Night Before Christmas Blocks.
Were there not some great projects seen yesterday… I am loving everyone’s projects this year and am totally amazed at how fast they put them all together. I so wish I was so quick. I use to be, but time and more time has passed me by and now I feel lucky to get something cut out. 🙂
I have loved your comments the last few days, I am glad you’re enjoying the blog hop as much as I am.
I’ve had many internet connections problems tonight… my apologies for the late post.
