Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…. is the theme of this block for the Twas the Night before Christmas BOTM.
I think most people remember this line as one of the most famous lines from the story, it is one of my favorites in the story and I always picture that little mouse peeking out of it’s cubby hole in the wall.
This block has a lot of embroidery in it, it is one of the reasons it has taken me so long to finish it. Block 3 which is suppose to be the February release should be ready in the next few days, these first two blocks had more embroidery in them than the future blocks do.
This block also features two fireplace options:
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
Thank you to all of you who emailed yesterday wondering where my post was. I have to be honest, this series has a bit more detail than I had anticipated and I am still writing the pattern. I am almost done.
Release should happen sometime this afternoon. I just want to be sure I have everything correct before releasing, so please just bear with me a little longer.
I do not have my desktop up yet, which has hindered my getting the pattern out on time, I have to work on my old laptop at the moment to finish part of the pattern due to software I can’t install on new laptop because the cd is packed in a box still. Once this pattern is up today I’ll be back in my sewing room, I am to a point I can start putting tables up, which means I can get everything unpacked, so by the release of Sue next week, hopefully I will be getting back to normal.
