I really wanted to get these done in December, but block 22 has so much detail it has literally taken me the last 3 weeks to write this pattern. By itself, it has 158 pages in the pdf. It’s mainly the embroidery section, the block just has a lot of detail. With it being 2020, I’ve also made a small change to my patterns for the new year and I hope you’ll like the change… You’ll see it in every 2020 pattern this year.
If you were here yesterday, you saw the free pattern I’m giving away till Monday. I am releasing the full set of animals today also.
We’ll have a Sunbonnet Sue/Sam release Continue reading
Each year I bring you this list of events that have been planned out for the new year. Each of these bloggers has created an event that they will feature monthly sometimes weekly on their blog.
Today I have what is the start of those previously announced for 2020 that I have found or been sent an email about.
The requirements to make this list are simple… KIF… keep it free. Your event must be free… no book purchases, no magazines to be purchased, no pattern purchases. The pattern for the block of the event must be free for a long enough period of time to allow people to download it.. This time period is normally a month’s time.
And here is the list… Continue reading
I was hoping to get this posted yesterday, but I forgot that it was my day at the doctor’s. Sometimes it’s just in and out and other times it’s half the day. Yesterday was one of those half the day kind of things. I’d had an infection in both my feet for the last few weeks, so she couldn’t do her normal thing four weeks ago when I was last in, Two weeks ago it was canceled due to a snowstorm in the area. My doctor drives in from Denver to treat people on Wednesdays each week. So I am sorry it didn’t get posted yesterday, but here I am today with Florida being released.
Sam is the free pattern for Florida.
Let’s get to the download…
You know, I’m not a fan of posting on weekends, but because I want to get the TTNBC blocks out to you, I’m posting today. So it’s that time again for the next block release… I forgot how long these take me to finish once they come back from the tester, but I am still determined to finish them by the end of the year and hopefully before that. Don’t be surprised if I release a set during 12 Days as I want to finish them.
Block 19 and Block 20 were uploaded this weekend to my Payhip shop. There is a coupon code for Block 19 for you to get the discount I normally give on the first of the two blocks.
I also have in this post the winners for Nifty Novelties. I totally forgot about getting these drawn, so I have also got this done and fully expect to mail by next Wednesday, November 13, 2019.
All Flickr rewards for Sunbonnet Sue are also caught up at the moment. You still have time to turn in Sue In Indiana to get Sam in Indiana free. November 17, 2019, is that deadline date. I expect to release Florida on Wednesday this week. I’ll be out of town on Monday and Tuesday, so I can’t release before that time.

Be sure you “type or paste” it exactly as it’s shown.
Just a note of thanks. I know how patient you have been waiting for me to release more patterns for this series. Believe me, I to just want to finish it up at this point. However, we still have 26 states to go until it’s done. Their is no way I can finish that prior to the end of the year since the end of the year is a mere 9 to 10 weeks away. I need to finish Twas The Night up first which has only 6 more patterns to go before it’s done. So, this is the plan basically speaking… Every other week until it’s finished, Sue/Sam will get a release. Twas the Night on the weeks Sue/Sam isn’t released. Once Twas The Night is finished, I’ll work on releasing a pattern a week for Sue and Sam. With the exception of the 12 Days of Christmas Event in December which I’m sorry but no releases will happen during that period since that’s a free pattern per day event. Please note that just because I’m changing how often these will get released, you still have 30 days to finish a pattern to turn it in and get the opposite block free.
If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you might visit on a semi-regular basis. A huge Thank You for that. I appreciate all of you.
As you know we are about three weeks now before the row along starts and lots of things are happening behind the scenes here at Seams To Be Sew. Over the last few days, I have mainly been working on my blog to bring you a special treat come the start of the row along. After all, it’s 5 years of row alongs in the making and quite frankly I thought it might be fun to do something a little special for it.
I’ll be posting soon also about the great giveaways our sponsors for Once Upon A Story are giving away during the 5 year Row Along celebration, there are some wonderful prizes coming your way. I know many of you are looking forward to the row along this year.
I will also be posting all the designers who are participating this year in the coming weeks.
Its been awhile coming and I’m truly sorry these updates are as slow as they have been. I honestly have good intentions on trying to release them quicker, but my health has to come first and that has bogged me down more than I thought it would this year. At 57, I feel sometimes like I’m never going to get better and my circulation issues continue to plague me. Between having the wound care visits to fix the foot ulcer and the physical therapy for my ciruclation I am starting to feel like I live at the care centers.
We also have to move. Our lease is up this month and I’ve known for sometime that we were going to move once it was up. The property management company has been kind enough to extend us to the end of June to move by, but I have to get my act together also and try to get all packed up and ready to move by mid-June. While I love living in this house, it is just to expensive for us to live in and be able to pay off the medical expenses also. So, we have no choice at this point but to find something that is far less money. In the meantime I will still work on these patterns to try and finish them up in a more timely manner.
Today I have for you, Sue and Sam in the USA – Colorado. Sue is the free block. I also have finished Canada… yeaaa 🙂 … NewFoundland and Labrador are offically done, and the Sue block for it is also the free block.
I also have the Cupcake of the Month up for release for April and May…
