Meet My Friend Tommy..

Tommy Turtle

Tommy TurtleThis is my friend Tommy. He’s a Turtle… Fun and Flirtatious, Slow and sure, but gets the job done. I’m sure we all feel the same way sometimes, I know I do.

So I thought you’d like a treat for this weekend only, I’m offering Tommy the Turtle in a 9-inch block pattern for you to download.

He’s also available in a purchased version with a 12-inch and 15-inch block size along with the machine embroidery and cutting files. I personally think the 15-inch would be a great pillow block for a baseball player.

Seams To Be Sew 2013-04

Three years ago today, I opened my blog. It started with this post. Well, that’s not true.. it actually started with this post and it went from their. At the time, I had just started learning Electric Quilt after having owned it for years and years, and just never doing anything with it. I had already been working on quilting again, prior to that, having to purchase a few supplies I didn’t bring overseas with me, and I definitely didn’t have the fabric storage that I needed for quilting either. It’s all still stored away in San Diego. I was thinking of opening a blog at the time I wrote Bea, but I just hadn’t planned on doing it so quickly, thus, the design of my blog was quite simple. I had no clue how WordPress worked as a blogging platform, and I honestly have to admit, I never even gave Blogger a consideration, not because of anything other than the things I read about on other blogs at the time and issues people had with Blogger. So I tried WordPress and it has been interesting. It’s not that WordPress is difficult to learn, but it is setup quite differently from other platform scripts I have tried in the past. In fact, I still like Joomla better, but, Joomla was never meant to be a blogging script and that’s the difference really.
