stbs-SusanE-12 Days-0238

stbs-SusanE-12 Days-0238Last year, during the first 16 days of December, Janeen at Quilt Art and I presented you with our second 12 Days of Christmas event. It can be so fun to see how ya’ll are creating the projects and it’s really cool when you send us pictures. Once again, Susan who sent me her first picture in February has now sent me her finished project…  I asked her to also send some closeups as I thought you’d really like to see some close ups also.

So inside this post, are some closeups and a larger image of her finished project.

12 Days of Christmas Day 12

12 Days D12-1

12 Days D12-1I know I am very late today, I never meant to post so very very late. I am sure it’s because I took on to much for today’s post, but I hope you will think it’s worth it. I really appreciate your patience.

I look forward to this event, each year I’ve had my blog opened I’ve done something for Christmas. Last year, I had made a lot of tree patterns, and I had remembered that Janeen also does a 12 days event on her blog. I wrote her and asked if we could do it together and it’s been fun to do it last year and this year. This year, we got together on the same project and came up with the Gingerbread Village for you. This is a fun way to bring people to our blog, and still say Thank You for visiting. We hope you’ll come back for more next year. 

So, first, a Huge Huge Huge Thank You for visiting me this year, visiting Janeen, encouraging us to bring you the best of what we have to offer you. It’s a real delight to hear or read a great comment, or see a thank you, or even just wishing us well because you may not have seen us post for awhile. Believe me, if you weren’t visiting, I doubt I’d still be running a blog.

So let’s get to the nitty and the gritty.. Today’s last release… I have for you the Sledding Ginger pattern featured in Block 9 of Janeen‘s pattern. Train 08, Continue reading

12 Days of Christmas Day 10

12 Days D10-1

12 Days D10-1Please note, I had thought I schedule this post to go live at 1am, but it turns out, it was 1pm… To the visitor who emailed me, Thank you for letting me know it wasn’t live.. 

Day 10 is here full of promise and fun… Today is a big day for patterns, as you can see in the image to the left, this is Block 5 of Janeen’s background block. I’ve added the Gingerbread Tree, The Village Light Pole, and the mailbox.

In my idea of how it should look, the Gingerbread Tree is right between block 5 and 6, it sits on the seam of the blocks stitched together..

12 Days Of Christmas Day 08

12 Days D08-1

12 Days D08-1Day 08 is here of 12 Days of Christmas, and today’s featured block from Janeen’s village is block #11. This is one of my favorite parts of the village, as I’ve always had an intrigue for ice skating. I watch it during the winter on tv, during the Olympics, but I’ve never actually tried ice skating. Of course I know I’d just fall, but what the heck, one of my favorite things during winter is tubing down the hill… How I miss doing that, it was one of the fun things as a child that we’d do in Idaho. I loved going tubing, it was just carefree, and a total rush.

I’d like to thank all of you who gave me some really great ideas for the corner on the train. I now know what I’ll be doing and hopefully will get that released later in the week for you.
