I’ve been saying it for days, but trying to finish last week just took me in so many different directions. I’d planned to release this Saturday night then got sidetracked by a mistake I noticed so needed to fix it today and retest it so I knew it was correct. Thus I had to fix what I’d already written into the pattern.
Today I have for you Sue & Sam in Nebraska and Idaho. I know it seems like it’s been a while, but 12 Days kept me very busy as did the rest of December and January. Because I’m also trying to finish up Twas the Night I have held off doing these and at the same time, I do expect to have at least two releases per month over the next few months of 2 states per release. I need to finish Twas The Night which is just two more blocks and then it’s done and we’ll be zooming on Sue/Sam in the USA… I won’t finish by my March deadline, but I do think we can finish by June 2020 if all goes well.
We are finally at the halfway point for Sunbonnet Sue/Sam… doing 50 states is a big undertaking, Nebraska is the 25th state, and Sue/Sam USA is now 50 blocks large. Idaho makes it the 26th state, so we are now more than halfway done… LOL!! and there are 52 blocks. In the end, you’ll have 100 blocks for this botm.
You’ll notice some changes in the pdf patterns. 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…
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.
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…
I know it’s been a long time coming. I am slowly getting back on track but my internet issues are becoming worse and worse. Three times since December someone has been here to try and fix the problem. The internet will be good for a week and then be back to on/off, on/off..I would actually change carriers, but I have no clue who to switch to. I’ve already been thru 2 of them because they up there prices after a few months… I can’t afford to pay more than a certain amount so I need to stay with a company that at least keeps there prices the same for at least a year at a time. I definitely need to switch phone companies tho. When my internet goes down, the phone also goes down. So my advice to you, don’t use the same phone company (landline, possibly even moble) that you have your cable with. I really don’t recommend it.
Suffice it to say this post has been a long time in the writing. Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to get these patterns posted. I finally finished them today.
I am releasing February’s Cupcake of the Month, Sue and Sam from Kentucky and Sue and Sam In Saskatchewan. I also have some very cute gnomes today that I am releasing. They are all available on my Payhip store. However, I also have 4 free patterns for you today… Who loves Free 🙂 I know I do.
I am also looking for two new testers, if you have applique experience, please see the post inside.
So, open the post and find the Free downloads…
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.
