Newest BOTMs Added To List for 2019

Buttermilk Basin

Buttermilk BasinHi Everyone, I’ve added a few new block of the months going on around the web to my 2019 list. I thought you might like to know about them, so really quickly, here they are..

I definitely have my favorite block of the months I look foward to each year and so I was happy to see that Buttermilk Basin and Morning Glory‘s botms had started. You might have missed block 1 from Buttermilk Basin, but block 2 is up and if you like working with wool (you can do them in cotton also) you will want to get to their site and get block 2 downloaded.

Reeze always does her main block for each month and then throws in a bonus block, so be sure you are on her newsletter so you get the coupon code for the bonus block.

The cute Gingerbread Village BOTM from Days filled with Joy is just getting started and is an absolutely adorable embroidery BOTM.

And… At Little Rabbit Quilt Co, Rosie is starting a new BOTM on March 01, if you visit her blog you can already tell this is a BOTM you won’t want to miss as she has some very cute patterns. I’m just getting to know Rosie as she has signed up to do the Row Along this year but I can tell she’s gonna be a great friend already.

These BOTMs are also Continue reading

Dust Off An Old Book Today….

Dust off a quilt book blog

Dust off a quilt book blogMy sincerest apologies, my post is late this morning. I went to bed last night and totally forgot to write my post. So this is a very quick post on the project I made for this hop.. Bea at Beaquilter  is the hostess of this hop and such a great idea. Over the last few months I can honestly say I’ve been thru most of my old books… and by that I mean throwing them out. Sadly, the majority of my books were ruined in the flooding of our basement last June and July when we had those hail storms. I have only a few books that were not downstairs and those are the books that I purchased while living overseas.

Over the years tho, I’ve mainly switched to buying ebooks.. I like this much better as those books are right on my pc and easy to just get to when I need a book. The books I used for this hop ended up being books I purchased online while we were living in Italy.

Just Showing My Wings Today…

Show Your Wings

Show Your WingsAt the time I noticed this blog hop was at play… I was already working on trying to finish up my newest nephew’s projects for his birth which came in late January. I am now a Grand Aunt and I am thrilled beyond belief… Almost like someone who would become a grandmother. So, I decided to put together this little project real quick as I’d been wanting to create it and had not had a lot of time to get to it.

It’s turned out far cuter than I’d first imagined. Sometimes when working with fabrics we can see how something is going to go together perfectly and other times you know you’re taking a risk and it’s either going to pay off or it’s not. This time it was worth the risk. I really love how this little project turned out.

Sue and Sam Kentucky and Saskatchewan Released… + 2 more Free Patterns…

Cupcake Love

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…

It’s A Black and White Day at Seams To Be Sew Today…

Black & White

Black & WhiteI do apologize for my recent absence. between working on Sue/Sam’s to get them ready for release, the Cupcake of the Month, and TTNBC, I’ve also had the flu, have been dealing with more leg issues.. Apparently, according to an Ultrasound I had, I have something called leaking veins. The doctor wants me to have laser surgery that she isn’t sure will even work to resolve the issue. My question is, why should I pay for a surgery that may not work? So, I’m debating it, in the meantime, another sore has cropped up on my foot and I’m working on getting that fixed. Some very bad news came last week when we found out my niece who was asked by her longtime boyfriend to marry him on Christmas day last month, has died last week from blood clots in his lungs. It’s a difficult time and so many bad things happening so far this year that I’m not liking 2019 so far this year. It just seems so wrong for my niece to have to go thru something so tragic.

On another note, my internet is still giving me fits, thus the late posting tonight. I have even had my project done for about two weeks now, so it is frustrating that I went to write my post earlier tonight and kept getting interrupted by the internet shutting down on me. 

So, are you curious what I made for this really fun blog hop by Carla at Creatin In The Sticks?  Continue reading

It’s Time For Quilt Qwazy Queens…

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2019

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2019Each year in March, I hold a blog hop that originally started as a way to celebrate National Quilting Day. As my friend Darlene reminded me, it should be Worldwide Quilting Day and I quickly agreed.  So each year I’ve held this event to honor the one day each year that quilters all can celebrate a day of there own. This is one of my favorite events each year, I never try to make this difficult and always try to make it easy enough for you to pull from what you’ve created in the past, or are planning to create in the future. Some like to make something specifically for the event.
