How 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… 🙂
My 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. 🙂
Do 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.
I’m so happy that many of you enjoyed the pattern released last Friday. Thank you also for the birthday wishes, they were also welcomed with a smile.
Today’s pattern features 1 of the 3 animal patterns in the 12 Days of Snow series for 2018. The first being a penguin. I just love these little creatures, they are so cute and adorable. I hope you to will enjoy Mr. Penguin Skates.
There are also several other sites being featured today with events they are running so be sure to stop in on those also.
Calibre Arts is also running a sale again so if you weren’t able to gain a mat during the Halloween hop, perhaps you’d like to try one here for the next eleven days. It will work a little differently with this one so be sure you read the details inside the post.
Today 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.
It’s always sad when a fun event such as any blog hop we venture into ends. All the creativity and inspiration tho still goes on by each of these bloggers each time they post. Blogging is a very popular way to inform people of what you’re up to… One does not need to be famous to run a blog, some of the best bloggers I know are not famous and they are full of inspiration and creativity. Having events such as this one help to bring us all together since the one thing we love most is this hobby known as quilting. It’s always my hope that during a new blog hop or row along you will find some fun new friends along the way by finding a new blog you hadn’t known about beforehand. It’s always fun also to have new blogs join in on the fun. As the year comes to an end, I wish to thank everyone who participated in this hop this week, your amazing projects have filled my mind with wonderful new ideas for the future and I can honestly see myself creating some of these projects also.

We 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.
