12 Days … Day 12

Mama and Baby BearsToday is the last day of 12 Days of Snow… it’s been a bit of adventure with my internet connection being the way it has been, but in all, I have enjoyed this event this year far more than I have in past years. I wish to thank all of you who have visited my blog over the last 19 days and throughout the year. The reason I do this event is that it gives me a way to thank you for visiting me all year long. I like to give back and while this year has had a lot of ups and downs with my health during the summer, the internet woes with this event, the events I hold on my blog are always a way for me to connect with all of you. I truly appreciate that you visit my blog, and get to know me, as I try to get to know all of you thru your comments and such. When you visit quietly it doesn’t give me a chance to get to know you, but your comments even when it’s a simple thank you allow me to know you just even by your name, and I am someone who recognizes names over and over again. Thank you all for your patience during this event. I know you visited to find the next days post and were disappointed when it wasn’t here, but I will always get them posted even if I am very very late.

When I started this event I told you there were three animals, today is the last animal. I toyed with this pattern because I had so many ideas for 12 Days of Snow and it was really hard to choose which patterns to feature for this event, in the end, I went with the one I liked the best and will release the others down the road. I hope you will like Mama and Baby Polar Bears.

For those of you who got here early yesterday, the link to the tutorial for Creating Snowflakes Out of Fabric was not working properly. I had left the post on private which I forgot about when trying to get yesterdays post out. I fixed it as soon as the comments started coming in that something was wrong. I had started writing that post in early December, so I marked it private so it wouldn’t show up in the feed until I featured the snowflakes pattern. If you didn’t get a chance to visit that post, the above link is correct.

    I am usually a lurker so it’s about time I say thank you! I am in chronic pain (two car accidents–neither my fault) and two spinal surgeries. Too much time in bed reading quilting blogs! Before my first accident in November of 2008, I didn’t even know about quilt blogs! You have helped me through some rough days and I can’t thank you enough…you are a very talented lady and I hope your health issues have passed! Merry Christmas!
