Twas The Night B19 and B20 Are Released… Nifty Novelties Winners Announced…

TTNBC B19

TTNBC B20You know, I’m not a fan of posting on weekends, but because I want to get the TTNBC blocks out to you, I’m posting today. So it’s that time again for the next block release… I forgot how long these take me to finish once they come back from the tester, but I am still determined to finish them by the end of the year and hopefully before that. Don’t be surprised if I release a set during 12 Days as I want to finish them.

Block 19 and Block 20 were uploaded this weekend to my Payhip shop. There is a coupon code for Block 19 for you to get the discount I normally give on the first of the two blocks.

I also have in this post the winners for Nifty Novelties. I totally forgot about getting these drawn, so I have also got this done and fully expect to mail by next Wednesday, November 13, 2019.

All Flickr rewards for Sunbonnet Sue are also caught up at the moment. You still have time to turn in Sue In Indiana to get Sam in Indiana free. November 17, 2019, is that deadline date. I expect to release Florida on Wednesday this week. I’ll be out of town on Monday and Tuesday, so I can’t release before that time.

You’ve Waited… And Here we are at it again.. Sue/Sam Indiana Released…

Sue and Sam In Indiana

Just a note of thanks. I know how patient you have been waiting for me to release more patterns for this series. Believe me, I to just want to finish it up at this point. However, we still have 26 states to go until it’s done. Their is no way I can finish that prior to the end of the year since the end of the year is a mere 9 to 10 weeks away. I need to finish Twas The Night up first which has only 6 more patterns to go before it’s done. So, this is the plan basically speaking… Every other week until it’s finished, Sue/Sam will get a release. Twas the Night on the weeks Sue/Sam isn’t released. Once Twas The Night is finished, I’ll work on releasing a pattern a week for Sue and Sam. With the exception of the 12 Days of Christmas Event in December which I’m sorry but no releases will happen during that period since that’s a free pattern per day event. Please note that just because I’m changing how often these will get released, you still have 30 days to finish a pattern to turn it in and get the opposite block free.

More New BOTMS, Wooly Block 2019, and other Events…

12 Days 2019

Coming October 1st is my all time favorite event for the year. Please don’t get me wrong, I love Block of the Months, Quilt Alongs, and other fun events that go on thru the year, but the one I’ll call a “temporary” event is the Wooly Block Adventure Event. Since I found out about the Wooly Block Adventure event in 2016, and was actually participating in it during our move back to the states that year I have thoroughly enjoyed this event. I got to do a bit of pay if forward with this event in 2016 when I visited shops to pick up kits for others and then ship the kits to them as they had been so kind as to send me Row by Row experience patterns and kits in 2015 and 2016.  In 2017, this event went to an online event. I was ecstatic. I knew at the same time we’d see a huge drop in shops that would participate because they are so against online stuff that they just refuse to participate. I’ve been told this by my own shops here in Colorado Springs. The following year in 2018, there was a large drop in shop participation, I was actually worried we wouldn’t see this event in 2019. Thank goodness, Janet must love this event as much as I love the row along each year because once again we have Wooly Block 2019. This year’s theme is Holiday Celebration and from the blocks they are now showing on the Facebook Wooly Block page, we are in for some absolutely gorgeous blocks.

How does this event work you might ask, Continue reading

New BOTM Found…A Pattern Sale…and Other News…

Once Upon A Story Row Along

Once Upon A Story Row Along

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you might visit on a semi-regular basis. A huge Thank You for that. I appreciate all of you.

As you know we are about three weeks now before the row along starts and lots of things are happening behind the scenes here at Seams To Be Sew. Over the last few days, I have mainly been working on my blog to bring you a special treat come the start of the row along. After all, it’s 5 years of row alongs in the making and quite frankly I thought it might be fun to do something a little special for it.

I’ll be posting soon also about the great giveaways our sponsors for Once Upon A Story are giving away during the 5 year Row Along celebration, there are some wonderful prizes coming your way. I know many of you are looking forward to the row along this year.

I will also be posting all the designers who are participating this year in the coming weeks.

The Wayback Machine and 5 New BOTM/SAL’s Added…

Hi Everyone, I’ve a little bug going on with my site at the moment, it has to be due to some of the wordpress updates lately. I’m working to try and find it. It seems to affect older pages on this site and not the newer ones tho, but if you try reloading the page you may see it also, it kinda looks like the path to the images. The bug affects all images, so I’ll be testing my plugins over the next few days to see which are current and which aren’t. I’m hoping it’s a simple problem like that and nothing else. 

Today I came to my blog to add some edits to the BOTM page for 2019, at least two BOTMs have finished and 4 more are starting or have started and I wanted to get them posted to you today. I realized pretty quickly that my sidebar stuff was gone, all that was there was the search bar, and the social icons, everything else was gone. One of the things about WordPress is that when you even switch a theme, the one backup you should make over everything else you also have to back up is your widgets on your Continue reading

Sue/Sam NewFoundland and Colorado Released along with CCOTM Apr/May…

Its been awhile coming and I’m truly sorry these updates are as slow as they have been. I honestly have good intentions on trying to release them quicker, but my health has to come first and that has bogged me down more than I thought it would this year. At 57, I feel sometimes like I’m never going to get better and my circulation issues continue to plague me. Between having the wound care visits to fix the foot ulcer and the physical therapy for my ciruclation I am starting to feel like I live at the care centers.

We also have to move. Our lease is up this month and I’ve known for sometime that we were going to move once it was up. The property management company has been kind enough to extend us to the end of June to move by, but I have to get my act together also and try to get all packed up and ready to move by mid-June. While I love living in this house, it is just to expensive for us to live in and be able to pay off the medical expenses also. So, we have no choice at this point but to find something that is far less money. In the meantime I will still work on these patterns to try and finish them up in a more timely manner.

Today I have for you, Sue and Sam in the USA – Colorado. Sue is the free block. I also have finished Canada… yeaaa 🙂 … NewFoundland and Labrador are offically done, and the Sue block for it is also the free block.

I also have the Cupcake of the Month up for release for April and May…

Found Another BOTM For You!!!

This is a very quick post today… With a thank you to Sharon who sent me an email about these Sew Alongs, this wonderful site has one fantastic botm’s going on right now, it’s in it’s fifth month tho so be prepared to spend some money if you want the previous patterns, but I say why wouldn’t you, this Retro Flash BOTM is so worth the cash for the patterns you may have missed.

If you look thru her site you’ll see some other great projects also. I just fell in love with this site when I saw it.

She is also starting a new one as of April 1 called Grandma’s Garden and it looks very inviting. These patterns are available free for one month and they they go to  what looks like a 4.99 per month pattern.

Grandma’s Garden

Please note I did find it a little difficult to find the download line in her posts. You will need to read, and try clicking to find them.

I’ve added these botms to my botm page here.
