My Happy Place RAL 2018

Good Morning my dear friends… Its great to see you on this dreary October morning which is filled with a nice cool brisk air this morning. It feels like Halloween is right around the corner when I look out my window and see the dreariness that October normally brings.

Today I have several things to take care of, thus the rare Saturday posting. In this post, you’ll find the Cupcake Of The Month for October, the schedule for Tuesday’s Show and Tell Day, the winners for Sept 25 and 27th and I’ll briefly touch on the upcoming Peek A Who Blog Hop.

First, let’s do some good stuff… the Cupcake Of The Month is for October, Continue reading

My Happy Place Is…

Morning Coffee With Boo

Morning Coffee With BooIt was so not easy to do this row. I have many things that make me happy. In the end, I created six rows for this row along because I wanted to decide which would be the easiest for me to do and I am now glad I picked the one I did because it doesn’t have a lot of shapes to it, under 50 in fact, and because of my leg issues in July, I wasn’t going to get this stitched out until I could get back up the stairs again. I did only move back upstairs with my desktop this past weekend, got the printer hooked up Tuesday, and when I have been upstairs I have been working on my row. I didn’t finish it until just last Friday. I love how it turned out and I hope you will enjoy it to.

I’m keeping this post as short as possible today, but plan to write a tutorial for you on tips and tricks I used to create this row tomorrow. I just didn’t have the time to do it today and my internet has been on and off all day long even tonight it’s feeling a bit wonky, I had to wait to write this post also. This is why I’m already late.

So, the back story… Continue reading

Christmas In July….

Christmas In July

Christmas In July

Unfortunately, today I just don’t have a post, with not having the ability to go upstairs and sew I didn’t finish my project. Its all cut-out and ready to sew, but that’s as far as it got.

Yesterday was reallllllly bad day for us, while I can at least walk now, I can’t get quite make it up the stairs, but I’m so happy, I see it coming at least. But that’s not the bad news… Hail hit Colorado Springs today and our basement got flooded by a broken window that blew out. You remember that basement if you read the post here where I showed all the fabric stored downstairs. Now I remember why that investment in those bins seemed pretty darn expensive at the time, but so worth it in the end. My post is late getting posted because we spent the night starting to move everything into the garage. They can’t take and start working on getting the water out of the carpet until we move everything out of the basement… 

I do have a giveaway today, so be sure you pop inside and read the rest of the post…

It’s Time For A Cupcake… A Cupcake Of The Month… :)

CCOTM-July

CCOTM-July

So, it’s time for a Cupcake, a wonderful lemony cupcake, pink or yellow, which is your preference?

I love lemonade, but I really love the pink lemonade…

Summer is a perfect time for lemonade, but since I’ve just learned how to make a great sweetened tea, I’ve been drinking lots of Iced Tea this summer. I’ll definitely need to break down soon and have me some lemonade tho…

This months cupcake is a free cupcake, the cupcake is on Payhip for you to download easily this month.

Twas The Night Blocks 13 and 14 Released…

Twas The Night Blocks 13 and 14

Twas The Night Blocks 13 and 14

Stranger things have happened uploading patterns when I’ve added patterns at Craftsy before. Tonight I was uploading blocks 13 and 14 and when I finished I couldn’t find where block 13 was. It shows up as a pattern in my own account’s pattern page, but it isn’t showing up in the quilt store for my profile or on the quilting page. So I’m not sure what’s happening in that respect. You can add it to your cart, but you can’t check out even. So I’ve also added them to Payhip for you tonight so that if your in a hurry to get started you can go ahead and purchase them. Please remember Payhip does cost a little bit more for patterns because I have two commissions that get paid from Payhip, one to Paypal, and one to Payhip.

Here are the links for this months blocks…

Cupcake Of The Month Released…

CCOTM-June

CCOTM-JuneSo, in my unofficial block of the month each month, this is the only release so far that I barely made the deadline on. So to the 15th of the month… at least I made it by the day it’s supposed to be released by. Anyway, this month’s cupcake represents the month of July with the patriotic celebration we are about to see next month on the 4th of July. 

I’ve just found a Canadian leaf I can use in place of the star, I’ll get it drawn up this evening and add it to this pattern tomorrow on Craftsy for anyone who purchases this pattern.
