Sam In Brazil Is Now Ready..

Sam In Brazil-large

Sam In Brazil-largeThe second Sunbonnet is now ready in the Sunbonnet Sue and Sam Travel The World Block Of The Month series. This week’s release is Sunbonnet Sam In Brazil. Available in a 9×9 and 12×12 size.

Their were several people who turned in blocks in the Flickr group, in the past few weeks. If you haven’t visited to see the blocks, be sure to go and see Sue In Brazil. Sometimes it helps to see what others have to done to get your own creative juices flowing. I love each one of them, it’s amazing to see what other people do and how they interpret their own colors to use.

Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year 2016Happy New Year Everyone!!!

So, how are you feeling today? Well for me, it’s already the 2nd of January and as a tradition  I don’t normally post on saturdays, but since I missed my Friday posting I am posting late, but still posting… hehehe

I had created this pattern the other day to welcome everyone into the New Year, and as I was making the pdf file, I got to thinking about how I made this for 2016, but it’s really a decoration you might use for a New Year’s party, so I realized, perhaps I should go ahead and make the 2017 block instead… So, that’s why I’m late.. I went ahead and created the 2017 block and added it to the pdf pattern.

12 Days Of Christmas – Days 09, 10, 11 and 12


Quiltart&STBS-12daysAnd then their were 0 days of Christmas…

Janeen from Quilt Art and I have teamed up to bring you a special event of giveaways. We’ve each created 12 patterns that have been given away over the last 7 days  with  5 days left to giveaway. Seven days have passed. I hope you haven’t missed any of the other trees or Janeen’s extremely cute penguins. You have only the day they are released to download them. If you missed mine, you can still pick them up in my Payhip or Craftsy shop as it will be available as a single till the end of the year.

If I hadn’t been picking the patterns by random order, I could have just scheduled my posts. I do not even know how many of you have emailed, commented, or said anything on Facebook. Either or, I still have no internet or phone connection. They are suppose to hook it up remotely tomorrow, but if that doesn’t work, they won’t be here until wednesday morning sometime. It’s an Italian holiday today and yesterday in Italy, so they aren’t real bothered about fixing the American’s phone or internet problems even tho they are the cause of them. I could blame the US Congress also, since they made some stupid rule about how people in base housing can’t be paying for utility services on the base, so that’s why this switch is being made apparently. It was suppose to happen at the end of November, although we had all of November to pay our final bill and such, so we’d paid it early in the month, and then had to reconfirm that we had not called any long distance on the 25th, which we did, so we were all set for reactivation. Apparently the reactivation didn’t go as they’d planned and many of us are still out with no internet and phone services.

So I do apologize, because I knew about the dates, but I just didn’t “associate” the dates to 12 Days, and I honestly didn’t think anything wrong could happen.. I should know better, because Italian services have never really left the best impressions with me.. so I really should know better.

I am writing this post currently on a wifi connection a friend loaned me for a few hours at her home, so I am setting this as a scheduled post. I’ve uploaded all the trees for you to enjoy, the last 4 patterns are ready for download and I really truly hope you enjoy the trees.

Day 9’s Tree pattern is.. Tree 15

Day 10’s Tree pattern is..Tree 07

Day 11’s Tree pattern is..Tree 11

Day 12’s Tree pattern is..Tree 18

and on a side note.. I have fixed my contact form.. thank you to those who let me know it wasn’t working properly.

Starting November 23… 12 Days Of Christmas.. Surprises Galore


Quiltart&STBS-12daysSo, it’s that’s special time of the year, when we all think of decorating, drinking eggnog, getting together with friends and family and celebrating with each other.

When I found out that Janeen over at Quilt Art, was also planning to do a 12 Days of Christmas pattern giveaway, I threw out the idea that we should do it together as I was planning to do one to.

So I redid my logo, and we have been working out the details.

Each day, you’ll visit each site and have an opportunity to download the pattern of the day.

You’ll have to come each day to get the different patterns from both sites, but I promise you, it will be worth the trouble.

Sew plan to come each day and join in the fun,it’s going to be a blast,
