Sue and Sam in Russia and Iceland are released. The Russian patterns are your free patterns for November, and Iceland is the Flickr Reward for November.
I’ve thrown in a Bonus Block this month, The Netherlands is also now available for purchase.
I wish to take a moment and sincerely thank you for your patience during our move. It was easy while we were in Italy, but getting to Colorado Springs has left me with a few awakenings and how difficult it can be to get things done in the USA… We just make everything so over complicated imho and sadly, many people have been so corrupt in their everyday dealings that it makes it hard for others to get things done quickly. I am normally someone who just likes to get things done and out of the way, and when I set my mind to something, it’s on that one soul thing to finish and I do everything possible to get their. Unfortunately, people don’t work the same way I do, so it’s put me in a spin just trying to keep track of everything going on. Thus, my blog has suffered because of it and I am truly sorry I have kept you waiting for these blocks. However, Sam is also being released with today’s patterns, and that makes him on time. 🙂
However, Hooray, I did manage to get this released today!!! I bet you were skeptical? 🙂 Some of you who saw me on Facebook last night probably thought I wasn’t going to get this up after all today, but I have been working on it all day long and that doesn’t include the errands I still had to run at 3pm when I finally stopped and said.. it may have to wait after all… But I’m here and it’s going to now get released.
Flickr Rewards will get caught up this week. I will do them while I am in Utah this week.
If you’ve just found this Block Of The Month, each month at the first of the month, you get to choose what will be released for the next month. The winning block is released as the Free block, the other is the FlickR Rewards block.
There 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 the other blocks. Sometimes it helps to see what others have to do 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.
When you finish and post/upload your block to the Flickr group, you’ll get one of the blocks that will go up for sale free. If you end up finishing the 24 released in 2016, you will get them all free. It’s a great way to get a “missed” block also. Details to turn in blocks is below the download images below, and will also be added to the Guidelines and features post. I will also add it to the menu page here.
Please note: You can finish any of the blocks at any time during 2016 and upload them to the Flickr group to claim one of the blocks for sale. For every block, you upload to the Flickr group you can get 1 free. The one exception to this is if you make as an example 2 Sam In Brazil blocks, you still only get 1 free choice.
I know, you’re waiting for the download, so let’s get right to it.. Here you are…
Note: I have gone back to using Craftsy, but I encourage you, do not use android type devices to try and download. All my files are always zipped and I believe this is what causes you to have problems.
