Happy New Year!! Each year on my blog I feature a list of the block of the months, Quilt Alongs, Sew Alongs, and other various events that happen on other sites each year. I love the block of the months myself and this list helps me to keep track, and I’ve heard from you that it also helps you keep track.
This is the one page on my blog that I do actually update often during the year. It will get updated a lot over the course of this month as new sites are found that are offering a block of the months.
I so get that it’s been a few months and I thank you all so much for waiting so patiently for the next blocks in the Twas The Night Series. It’s actually been 5 months since the last release and I really do apologize for taking my sweet time getting them out. There are 7 more blocks left in this series and I am hoping to have them all done by March 2019.
The Cupcake of the Month 2018 finishes also with this update, as I’ve uploaded November and December for you. The November block is Free for the next two weeks.
I’ve also released with this release the pumpkin basket pattern you’ve been waiting for since I posted last week with the Pick A Pumpkin Blog Hop and last a free Turkey Day pattern just for fun for ya’ll… So in all TWO free patterns today.
It seems funny to me that it’s been four years now since I offered what was my first block of the month. They were these very cute dolls from Graphics and Graphics. It was called Little Treasures. I’ll show you some of the patterns in that set in this post for those of you not aware of it…
I’ve often said how much I love seeing the patterns created, part of the reason I do my block of the months the way I do now is so that I can see them be done. I don’t like forcing people to do them, but they are an amazing amount of work and time to create so I went that route so that my time would also pay off in seeing how you created the pattern into fabric and decoration. Hopefully into a beautiful quilt that will be treasured.
This past week, one of my first “followers” someone whose name I immediately recognize as just that, Joyce Carter Continue reading
Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy!! I was able to finish the Sunbonnet Sue/Sam patterns up last night for release today and I am so happy and glad they are finished now for you before the row along starts tomorrow. Because I will be posting often this post will get dug down in the list pretty quickly, so get yours downloaded as quickly as possible.
This release also includes the Cupcake Of The Month for September. Yeppers I got her done. 🙂 She is free this month for you.
This months releases for Sue/Sam are the Northwest Territories, Sue is the free block, Massachusetts, Sue is the free block, and North Dakota, Sam is the free block.
Lets get right to the nitty gritty… I’ve got to still post the schedule for the row along today and I’m going to put that in a separate post.
As many of you know, coming on September 4, 2018 just two weeks and a day away is the My Happy Place Row Along. The Row Along itself will be 4 years old, each year it has had a different theme, but the Row Along part of the name has continued to exist. Each year, giveaways from sponsors have been offered and both Northcott and The Fat Quartershop are just a few of the great companies who have given us great products every year of this row along.
I do have some other news at the bottom of this post, so be sure you read the entire post, please…
It’s been a very odd time for me this past month or so… First I’d like to thank all of you who wished me well on my road to my recovery with my leg. I am up and around now and can get up and down those stairs.
My husband has been away on a business trip this week and it has thrown me into a headspace that I just haven’t been able to seem to get out of. Normally, I am pretty independent but for some reason these past few days I have just been wonky in the head, not really feeling like I’m all here. Perhaps its the anticipation of 34 years next week, our anniversary is coming up and while we don’t really have any major plans it’s always a wonderful time just realizing that we’ve been together for that long. Believe me when I say, when I first walked into this marriage all those years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d still be here all these years later. I didn’t grow up feeling like my own parent’s marriage was strong, so I never felt anyone could love me for as long as Frank has stuck by me. I guess I was wrong. He did say to me, I don’t believe in divorce and I always took him for his word. 🙂
We are two and a half weeks from the row along starting and it’s a really busy time for all of us. So I’m going to try and keep this a short post today and next week I’ll be posting all the giveaways the sponsors have for you.
Today I have released the Cupcake of the Month for August for you. This Continue reading
