12 Days … Day 6

SleighRides

SleighRidesSo yesterday, I told you in my post that I had a companion block for the Hot Chocolate pattern. Obviously your thinking it goes with hot chocolate and to me it does. I feel you can’t go on a sleigh ride without a nice good thermos full of Hot Chocolate to help keep you warm under that blanket that’s probably covering your knees. Perhaps you have a “partner” alongside you with his or her arms wrapped around you, for me, it was my hubby, that is who I have had my sleigh ride with and it was one of the most enjoyable things we’ve ever done together.

So my pattern today is a “sleigh ride”. Continue reading

12 Days … Day 5

Hot Chocolate

Hot ChocolateHow could anyone go outside in the winter to come back inside and not sit down in front of a roaring fire with a wonderful cup of Hot Chocolate? I may not have the fireplace, but I do love Hot Chocolate. So today I share a cup with you…

You will be receiving the 8×10 pattern of this cup, perfect size for a fun mugrug. I’m sorry the text in the image does not come with the free pattern.

I do still seem to be having intermittent internet issues, guess I’ll break down and call Xfinity today if they continue.

Today’s pattern is a part 1 of 2 type pattern, you will get the other part of the pattern tomorrow. It is perfect for Hot Chocolate… 🙂

12 Days … Day 4

Mr. MooseJaw

Mr. MooseJawMy apologies to you all, there is no reason my internet should have been down all day yesterday but for some reason it was. I waited up until 3 am this morning for it to come back online steady enough that I could finish this post up but as it wasn’t totally down it was intermittent enough that I had part of the post written and just needed to add the links for the patterns today. Thus I never got that done. I usually write my posts then add the patterns to the carts. That way I can upload the patterns when it’s time and all I have to do is to add the links to the posts. When I’m sitting here falling asleep in my chair, that’s when I know it’s time to go to bed. My connection was so on/off yesterday that every time I went to upload a pattern the upload timed out. I finally just gave up and went to bed. I do not have a secondary connection, no cell phones or mobile devices for me, so there was no way for me to even notify anyone that I was going to be late today. This is the reason I mentioned in last weeks post that sometimes I am late.

So, back to today’s reason for this pattern. 🙂 Do any of you remember a show called Northern Exposure? It was set in Cicely, Alaska and was on during the early 90s. In the opening of the show, there was a Moose who walked across the road. I love that show, my husband and I have always wanted to retire to Alaska. 🙂

12 Days of Snow – Day 3

Continuous Lines - Winter

Continuous Lines - WinterDo you remember as a child going out in the snow in those fun boots or galoshes? I sure remember the various different boots we wore over the years. From fancy to downright floppy flaps I remember them like it was yesterday.

Today’s free pattern is like receiving 5 patterns in one. The snow boots come in 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12-inch sizes and you’re getting all 5 sizes of the pattern.

I was happy you enjoyed yesterday’s pattern. I thought it was so adorable and I have more penguins to come soon.

So let’s get on inside the post and download today’s free pattern.

12 Days of … Day 1

12 Days Of-2018

12 Days Of-2018Well, here we are the first day of the 12 Days of … at Seams To Be Sew. I must say it was fun to read your comments from the last post with your guesses. I had some really good chuckles. 🙂

So, today is the day, to find out the theme, grab the first pattern and then come back on Monday for the next pattern to come.

So, let me talk about why I chose the theme I did, and perhaps you’ll understand why it’s so special to me this year.

First, I love Winter. it’s my favorite time of the year. Not because of Christmas, or the New year, or even Valentine’s Day, but because of the snow. I love love love snow. I get very disappointed and discouraged when we’ve had winters without any or very little snow.

As a child, and because when it snowed in Idaho Falls, it wasn’t just an inch of snow and then gone, it lasted for weeks and there were so many fun things to do. I loved shoveling the sidewalk and driveway, I loved making Snow Angels, going tubing, skating, and making Snowmen. So, in my hope for Snow this year… I am hoping for 12 days of Snow.. thus my theme for this year is Snow, the wonderful world of the beautiful white ground cover that comes during Winter. I am optimistic this year, I know we are due for a major snowstorm here in Colorado Springs. 🙂

So, when I said I had left many clues just hanging about, I have, over the years, I’ve mentioned how much I love Winter, and snow, and the logo and the header for 12 days this year more than shows what the theme of this year’s event is. 🙂 Many of you were very close to what it truly is. However, there is more than just snowmen to this theme. 🙂

Pumpkin Pumpkin, Who’s Got The Pumpkin…

Pick A Pumpkin

Pick A PumpkinToday is my day on this very fun blog hop which Carla from Creatin In The Sticks has hosted. It’s been full of fun and creative ideas and I have been awed and inspired these last few days with all the great projects that have been shown from the other bloggers. Thus the reason I love blog hops, we are each all so different, loving the same hobby, but we come together all wanting to do that person’s projects once you see it live. I love that about blogging and quilting.

I have created my own project for this hop, having made tons of these while we lived overseas. It was so easy for me to join this hop and create these pumpkins I could have made hundreds, to be honest. They are fun, easy and a quick project to boot… Tiny, but so fun… and so many cool things can be done with them. They also make a fun gift for someone who loves to decorate for fall, Thanksgiving, Halloween.. etc… I’ve made this up into a pattern and have a giveaway inside for those of you who might like to have the pattern.

The Purple People Eater… Art With Fabric Blog Hop…

Art With Fabric

Art With Fabric

So there I was, debating what to create for this blog hop, and the only thing on my mind was Halloween and what to do with that blog hop… My mind was on the Purple People Eater… not that I ever saw the movie that this saying was made famous in, but to me, a people eater is like a monster that is purple… Ya’ll know I love monsters, so there ya have it, as my mind considered the Purple People Eater, Halloween approached and my project got done, time to move on to Art With Fabric’s project… but I still couldn’t get the Purple People Eater off my mind. So, instead, I did Snowflakes… 🙂 Purple in fact.

When I signed up for this blog hop, Continue reading
