Tree In Night Sky

Tree In Night SkyI am headed for a wedding today, so another brief post…

This cute pattern is of a tree, that’s right, a simple tree, but fun, in a great way, depending on the fabrics you choose, you can make this an outstanding pattern easily. Decorate the tree, or not, it’s entirely up to you. The free pattern is the 7×9 size, but it’s also available for purchase in the 15-inch size.

The artist for this pattern is from Delightful Doodles.

Christmas Characters 12

Christmas Characters 12Good Morning Everyone. Thank you for taking the time to visit this post to download your free pattern. I’m having an odd problem, it seems that there were 284 downloads of the free pattern yesterday, but only 227 page visits. You might not think of this as odd, but I do… and I am NOT happy. Part of my reason for not using Craftsy as the download page is because I want people to visit my posts. This has to mean to me that the direct download page is being shared versus people actually visiting my blog. I do not want to deny those who come here and are not sharing the post the ability to get there patterns freely, but having 57 people download without having visiting this post bothers me greatly. So I ask you, PLEASE, be respectful of anyone who offers you a  FREE pattern. These patterns take time to make, they take up valuable resources. I do NOT use free artwork, I have paid for the artwork that is used in my patterns, and I would hope people would respect that they are getting good quality patterns with legitimate artwork used. If this trend continues, how this event works next year will change drastically. I do not mind if you share the link to this post, but please don’t share the direct download link.

The next part of this post deals with how this event works… Please take a moment and READ the following…. it concerns how downloads work for this event.

12 Days of Presents – Day 02

Santa Moon 2

Santa Moon 2Here we are on day 02 of 12 Days of Presents. I loved hearing your comments about day 01’s angel. I am so happy you liked her. I can’t wait to see your creations and I hope you’ll send me photos.

Today’s free pattern is a Santa. Many moons ago, I created Santa Moon 01 and it’s been sitting on Craftsy now for the last two years. I updated this pattern over the weekend simply because I knew I’d be releasing this new one. I had originally offered part of that pattern as a free pattern, so today I’m offering the new one also as a partial free pattern.

12 Days, Very Late In The Day, But Online…

Silhouette Nativity-02

12 Days of Presents is finally here and today was just not going to work out as a good day to start this with. Last night my internet went out just as I was writing the post, it was half way done and boom, no internet… I kept watching all day in between errands and such to see if it had come back on and only noticed it was back on about an hour or so ago now, so I got the patterns for today uploaded and am now writing this post as quickly as possible in case it goes out again.

I Love Love Love this pattern, and the full set. It has been a sheer delight watching it come together and I’m happy to present you with one of the beautiful patterns in this series.

Coming Soon… 12 Days of … and Newest Releases…

stbs-12 Days Logo 2017

stbs-12 Days Logo 2017I have so much to say today, I’m not sure where to start… it was a busy weekend… Frank was finally home long enough that we managed to get all the rest of the giveaways from the Row Along and Enter If U Dare all squared away… The labels are made and the postman will pick them up today. I’m sorry some of you have had to wait, he’s had some really long hours of late and it’s not going to stop anytime soon, we just lucked out that one of the engineers couldn’t work this past weekend. With my hand the way it has been, I couldn’t do it myself either. I will be at the doctor tomorrow, so hopefully, I will have some good news on removing this cast. I’ve still got a wedding gift to finish for next month and I am worried I am not going to get it finished.

Next month, starting December 01, 2017 is the start of 12 Days of Christmas. If you’ve been with me for the last four years that I have done this, you’ll remember it’s a fun time of the year. I give away a pattern a day for the 12 weekdays of December. (no weekends) Two years ago, Janeen at Quiltart and I started doing this as a together event. She also has done a 12 Days of Christmas event on her blog for at least the last four years and it could even be longer than that. Janeen and I did our patterns as a combined project last year, you may remember

12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop

12 Days of Christmas

12 Days of ChristmasUnfortunately, my scheduler is still not working, I’ve disabled most of my plugins, so I’m thinking it’s gotta be something with WordPress itself. This post was originally supposed to post on Friday, July 14, 2017.

12 Days of Christmas in July is finally here, hosted by the lovely Sarah from Confessions of A Fabric Addict. She’s done an amazing job of organizing this hop and keeping us all up-to-date. The following is the schedule for this hop, and because my scheduler wasn’t working properly I didn’t even notice until today that Friday hadn’t posted.

A wonderful giveaway will happen with each day of this hop, Free Spirit fabrics will give away fabric from their new Tula Pink holiday line called Holiday Homies.
