My First Block Of The Month… Do You Remember It?

Little Treasures

Little Treasures BOM

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

Cupcake Of The Month Released… Winners Announced…

August CC

August CCIt’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

It’s Time For A Cupcake… A Cupcake Of The Month… :)

CCOTM-July

CCOTM-July

So, it’s time for a Cupcake, a wonderful lemony cupcake, pink or yellow, which is your preference?

I love lemonade, but I really love the pink lemonade…

Summer is a perfect time for lemonade, but since I’ve just learned how to make a great sweetened tea, I’ve been drinking lots of Iced Tea this summer. I’ll definitely need to break down soon and have me some lemonade tho…

This months cupcake is a free cupcake, the cupcake is on Payhip for you to download easily this month.

Twas The Night Blocks 13 and 14 Released…

Twas The Night Blocks 13 and 14

Twas The Night Blocks 13 and 14

Stranger things have happened uploading patterns when I’ve added patterns at Craftsy before. Tonight I was uploading blocks 13 and 14 and when I finished I couldn’t find where block 13 was. It shows up as a pattern in my own account’s pattern page, but it isn’t showing up in the quilt store for my profile or on the quilting page. So I’m not sure what’s happening in that respect. You can add it to your cart, but you can’t check out even. So I’ve also added them to Payhip for you tonight so that if your in a hurry to get started you can go ahead and purchase them. Please remember Payhip does cost a little bit more for patterns because I have two commissions that get paid from Payhip, one to Paypal, and one to Payhip.

Here are the links for this months blocks…
