12 Days of Christmas Day 10

12 Days D10-1

12 Days D10-1Please note, I had thought I schedule this post to go live at 1am, but it turns out, it was 1pm… To the visitor who emailed me, Thank you for letting me know it wasn’t live.. 

Day 10 is here full of promise and fun… Today is a big day for patterns, as you can see in the image to the left, this is Block 5 of Janeen’s background block. I’ve added the Gingerbread Tree, The Village Light Pole, and the mailbox.

In my idea of how it should look, the Gingerbread Tree is right between block 5 and 6, it sits on the seam of the blocks stitched together..

12 Days Of Christmas Day 08

12 Days D08-1

12 Days D08-1Day 08 is here of 12 Days of Christmas, and today’s featured block from Janeen’s village is block #11. This is one of my favorite parts of the village, as I’ve always had an intrigue for ice skating. I watch it during the winter on tv, during the Olympics, but I’ve never actually tried ice skating. Of course I know I’d just fall, but what the heck, one of my favorite things during winter is tubing down the hill… How I miss doing that, it was one of the fun things as a child that we’d do in Idaho. I loved going tubing, it was just carefree, and a total rush.

I’d like to thank all of you who gave me some really great ideas for the corner on the train. I now know what I’ll be doing and hopefully will get that released later in the week for you.

stbs-2016 12 Days of Christmas D06Welcome to Day 06 of 12 Days of Christmas. Thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday. It’s very nice to see so many of you. 🙂

Today’s release is pretty simple, we are on Day 06, and Janeen’s background block number 07 has been released. This block mainly has the house with a path in front of it also like yesterday’s but still different, this one has more path in front of it and you see the gumdrops also from day 02’s pattern in it. I haven’t released the gumdrops again, these are part of the 25 I said you’d need for the pattern.

12 Days Of Christmas Day 05


stbs-2016-gingerbread-b2-on-snowGood Morning All, I apologize for being late this morning, I was writing the post last night and kept falling asleep at the laptop.. I finally decided to just write Janeen and let her know I’d be late today.

Today’s release marks 3 shapes to download, two of them for Block 02, and the other another part of the Train border. There are two pdf files, so be sure you download both files.

I thought I’d show you two ways the gingerbread can be done… just a slight adjustment makes this look just a little different.
