Ireland Sue

I know I’m running a tad late today 🙂 but I needed to make a fix to the patterns, and then retest. I don’t release patterns without testing them out first.

Today’s release for Sunbonnet Sue and Sam Travel The World is Sam In Ireland.

The is the seventh block in the series for this block of the month.

Sue In England is also available as the Flickr Reward Release for those of you who’ve uploaded new blocks that are previous Free releases. If your not participating in the BOTM, you can purchase the block here.

This week’s release is Sunbonnet Sue In Ireland. Available in a 9×9 and 12×12 size.

This is a voting period, so please place your votes over the next two weeks for the USA and/or Canada.

Their 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 done 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.

Heya, Sycamore Hill Has a New BOTM..

Sycamore Hill

Sycamore HillI don’t normally post on Saturdays, but today again, I was out and about and noticed that Sycamore Hill has added her new BOTM for 2016.

Isn’t it a beauty. I love her quilts, always so beautiful, delicate and elegant.

For the most part, her botms are free, however, she always charges for the center block, but you can always substitute the center for something you already have also. She does have the first block up for download on her blog also.

Have a great day!!

I kinda wish I’d chosen Ireland for March, but I already had my plans in place and totally didn’t think about it coinciding with St. Patrick’s Day, but, since you’ll be making it, perhaps you’ll have the block ready for next year if your not participating in the BOTM.

I know, I know, I’ve been MIA for 12 days..

International Craft Month 2016

But with good reason.. really… maybe… oh heck, I dunno.. perhaps it’s been the International Craft Month 2016disheartening problems with my internet connection, having to spend much time at the library just to answer email, or try to get things done on the net that I know need to be done… I don’t like to work on my blog at the library because I don’t necessarily trust that the connection is secure there, so I’ve had to wait it out and see what happens. They finally bought a new modem today.. the second one in the last two months now… I’m not the only one who’s had this problem tho, it seems about 20 or so modems went out here in the housing complex, so I’m at least happy to know I wasn’t the only one going crazy.

So how have the last 12 days of your life been?

My friend Darlene over at Quiltshop Gal is doing a Blog Hop during the first part of March… Twelve bloggers over Twelve Days will participate each day in a different project to be featured each day. I am on March 01, so please do remember to stop on in and see what lucky project I’ve made this weekend for ya’ll… maybe even a little freebie will be passed along also… you just never know ya know… 🙂 — got ahead of myself here a bit, my day is near the end of the month, we are all talking about it during the first of the month.. 🙂 Maybe I’ll give you a little peeker on March 01… 🙂
