On This The 4th Day of Peek A Who…

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopWe again have some very talented bloggers who will be showing off their wonderful projects. Yesterday we saw some outrageously fun projects that I know inspired me to get busy and finish a quilt… I was really hoping to do more of that this year but time just passes so quickly it seems and sometimes real life has to come first over my lonely Bernie who is waiting patiently for me to use him again… I have done some sewing this year, but my concentration is more on Christmas and my new grand nephew coming to us in the New Year. I hope you to have found some inspiration and will find some more today.

And We Venture Into the 3rd Day of Peek A Who…

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopDid you see the projects featured yesterday… OMGosh, weren’t they wonderful. My mind is boggled with all the great ideas and creativity we’ve seen so far these past few days… I’m so excited about what’s to come.

PLEASE READ!!  Those of you not familiar with my pattern a day during blog hops… I need to explain a little issue I keep receiving in my email… The pattern of the day that I’m offering this week is only available for 24 hours and then it is deleted. Once my next day post goes live, that’s it, the pattern comes down and the new one goes up. I’ve clearly stated this on each day below the picture of the pattern. If you can figure out how to download the pattern, you can certainly read that it’s only available for 24 hours. I don’t like being like this, but, I will NOT send you the pattern via email ever. Please do not ask me to. You will get this same response in your email. The patterns go up for sale after the pattern is no longer available for free. Payhip doesn’t allow for mobile device downloads, so you need to use a desktop or a laptop to download with. You will receive an email with the download link, be sure you get it downloaded via a desktop or laptop prior to midnight est every night. Any time after that I will not guarantee that the pattern is still available for download. Those patterns are deleted off the server once I click to delete the product from the cart.  This is how the 12 Days of Event also in Nov/Dec also works.

Let’s now get on to the schedule…

Peek A Who Schedule… Starting October 22, 2018

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHop

Peek A Who Halloween BlogHopStarting next Monday, October 22, 2018 is the annual Halloween hop here at Seams To Be Sew. I’ve done this hop now for the last four years, and have enjoyed every moment of it. It’s the one hop each year that many bloggers look forward to. In the USA in particular, Halloween is the second most popular holiday in the USA next to Christmas for many people. This year’s theme is Peek A Who… a fun little theme for the peekers who exist beyond the walls…

I have a few giveaways from great sponsors like Timeless Treasures and The Fat Quartershop for you with this hop and my traditional pattern a day giveaway. It means that you’ll have to stop by this blog each day to get the pattern. It’s only available free for 24 hours only, so if you want it, you have to stop by and get it on the day it’s offered. It works in the same way that 12 Days does coming at the end of November thru Dec 17, 2018.

Calibre Art is also doing a sale of 50% off there mats during this week for us. If you’ve purchased one of these mats in the past, you already know how wonderful they are. Each day, I’ll offer the ability to get a coupon for 5 lucky people to purchase their mats at 50% off. You’ll have until November 1, 2018, to use the code for your mat purchases. This offer is only available at Seams To Be Sew, and is for US residents only because Amazon does not ship these mats outside of the USA.

The schedule and prizes being offered during the hop are just a click away, click the Continue Reading link to see what’s being given away and who are participating in the Peek A Who hop… Continue reading

Fabulous Freebees… A Small Project With A Cool Look…

MooseStash Fabulous Freebies

MooseStash Fabulous Freebies

So, today is my day on the Fabulous Freebees blog hop, hosted by my friend Joan at MooseStash Quilting. You’d never guess this was the first hop she’s hosted, she’s been great at getting it organized and keeping us all apprised of the happenings of the hop. Thanks, Joan for hosting this very fun hop.

Free patterns are really everywhere on the web. I’ve heard more than once that we are inundated with them. Frankly, who doesn’t love a free pattern? I can’t tell you I don’t, because I do.  I’ve even been known to offer a few free patterns myself every now and again. 🙂 I have no problem buying a pattern I like, but free ones are always nice also.

I didn’t create one of my own patterns, as I’ve been wanting to do this one for a while. 

Today, my project is along the lines of Christmas Continue reading

Cupcake Of The Month Released… Winners Announced…

August CC

August CCIt’s been a very odd time for me this past month or so… First I’d like to thank all of you who wished me well on my road to my recovery with my leg. I am up and around now and can get up and down those stairs.

My husband has been away on a business trip this week and it has thrown me into a headspace that I just haven’t been able to seem to get out of. Normally, I am pretty independent but for some reason these past few days I have just been wonky in the head, not really feeling like I’m all here. Perhaps its the anticipation of 34 years next week, our anniversary is coming up and while we don’t really have any major plans it’s always a wonderful time just realizing that we’ve been together for that long. Believe me when I say, when I first walked into this marriage all those years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d still be here all these years later. I didn’t grow up feeling like my own parent’s marriage was strong, so I never felt anyone could love me for as long as Frank has stuck by me. I guess I was wrong. He did say to me, I don’t believe in divorce and I always took him for his word. 🙂

We are two and a half weeks from the row along starting and it’s a really busy time for all of us. So I’m going to try and keep this a short post today and next week I’ll be posting all the giveaways the sponsors have for you.

Today I have released the Cupcake of the Month for August for you. This Continue reading

12 Days of Christmas… July 2018

stbs-Bunting 6

12 Days 2018

It’s a wonderful time of year. July is a good reminder for us all that we should get started on our Christmas sewing and quilting if you haven’t already.

When I was single, I always waited to buy Christmas gifts till just right before Christmas, when I got married, I bought all year long, and now, I feel lucky if I get everyone covered, I’m really good at gift certificates now.

This year tho, I am determined to create all my Christmas gifts for everyone. I have a new grand nephew/niece due next February and I am very excited about being a Grand Auntie.  I can’t wait to make his/her first quilt for her.

I was supposed to participate on Wednesday with this hop, but my day got shifted thankfully by the good people participating. I’d like to thank all of you who volunteered to switch days with me.

From scary to joy all in a less than 60 days.

Have you created something for Halloween that you’d like to show off?  This is the time you can do that. Whether your a blogger or a non-blogger, everyone is welcome to participate. Of course, yes, it does help to have a blog, but if you don’t have a blog, your project can be hosted on this blog or any of the participating blogs.
