And My Project for Peek A Who…

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopI had originally created a set of Owl Placemats. However, they were a commissioned item for someone at Frank’s work. He took the placemats to work with him Tuesday without realizing I hadn’t taken the pictures yet. These were for a birthday gift for his boss, and the woman who was adding them with his other gifts was pestering him to bring the placemats to work, so thinking they were done and they were … he took them to work.. I looked everywhere on Wednesday for those placemats, realizing I should have left them in the sewing room as Frank wouldn’t have touched them if they’d been up here. So, I’ve spent the entire day doing something else, and I love the result, I think more than the Owl placemats… I wish I had a better picture of the end result, but I’ll do that later today and post it here when I have it

So along with my project, I’m going to share some tips on doing Continue reading

On This The 4th Day of Peek A Who…

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopWe again have some very talented bloggers who will be showing off their wonderful projects. Yesterday we saw some outrageously fun projects that I know inspired me to get busy and finish a quilt… I was really hoping to do more of that this year but time just passes so quickly it seems and sometimes real life has to come first over my lonely Bernie who is waiting patiently for me to use him again… I have done some sewing this year, but my concentration is more on Christmas and my new grand nephew coming to us in the New Year. I hope you to have found some inspiration and will find some more today.

And We Venture Into the 3rd Day of Peek A Who…

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopDid you see the projects featured yesterday… OMGosh, weren’t they wonderful. My mind is boggled with all the great ideas and creativity we’ve seen so far these past few days… I’m so excited about what’s to come.

PLEASE READ!!  Those of you not familiar with my pattern a day during blog hops… I need to explain a little issue I keep receiving in my email… The pattern of the day that I’m offering this week is only available for 24 hours and then it is deleted. Once my next day post goes live, that’s it, the pattern comes down and the new one goes up. I’ve clearly stated this on each day below the picture of the pattern. If you can figure out how to download the pattern, you can certainly read that it’s only available for 24 hours. I don’t like being like this, but, I will NOT send you the pattern via email ever. Please do not ask me to. You will get this same response in your email. The patterns go up for sale after the pattern is no longer available for free. Payhip doesn’t allow for mobile device downloads, so you need to use a desktop or a laptop to download with. You will receive an email with the download link, be sure you get it downloaded via a desktop or laptop prior to midnight est every night. Any time after that I will not guarantee that the pattern is still available for download. Those patterns are deleted off the server once I click to delete the product from the cart.  This is how the 12 Days of Event also in Nov/Dec also works.

Let’s now get on to the schedule…

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Did you love the projects shown yesterday as much as I did? I sure enjoyed what I saw of them. Its fun to see what others come up with, or how fabrics can so affect our patterns in the most wonderful ways and sometimes in the more strange ways.

Today’s bloggers are no different, they will show us projects that may boggle the mind, and at the same time may get our creative juices flowing.

Today Is The First Day of Peek A Who!!

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopToday we start the Halloween Hop with this year’s theme called Peek A Who. I’m a huge fan of peek a boo clipart and illustrations. I just think they are cute. They are not so easy to find tho. I especially like it when I can find art where the actual object is peeking over a window, or by the side of a wall, or even behind a sign or other objects. Thus Peek A Who became this year’s theme.

We’ll start today with 4 other bloggers. However, while my actual day for this hop isn’t until Friday, Oct 26, each day I have a Calibre Art Mat Sale that you can enter a giveaway for. Not all of the blogs will show this offer, so if you’re hoping to win a 50% off coupon for one of these amazing mats, you’ll need to stop in here to enter the coupon giveaway.

Cupcake Of The Month Released… Winners Announced…

August CC

August CCIt’s been a very odd time for me this past month or so… First I’d like to thank all of you who wished me well on my road to my recovery with my leg. I am up and around now and can get up and down those stairs.

My husband has been away on a business trip this week and it has thrown me into a headspace that I just haven’t been able to seem to get out of. Normally, I am pretty independent but for some reason these past few days I have just been wonky in the head, not really feeling like I’m all here. Perhaps its the anticipation of 34 years next week, our anniversary is coming up and while we don’t really have any major plans it’s always a wonderful time just realizing that we’ve been together for that long. Believe me when I say, when I first walked into this marriage all those years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d still be here all these years later. I didn’t grow up feeling like my own parent’s marriage was strong, so I never felt anyone could love me for as long as Frank has stuck by me. I guess I was wrong. He did say to me, I don’t believe in divorce and I always took him for his word. 🙂

We are two and a half weeks from the row along starting and it’s a really busy time for all of us. So I’m going to try and keep this a short post today and next week I’ll be posting all the giveaways the sponsors have for you.

Today I have released the Cupcake of the Month for August for you. This Continue reading
