I know you’ve been wondering….

Simply Sign It-I Want More

Simply Sign It-I Want MoreI’d like to thank those of you who’ve written me over the last week… I sometimes forget that ya’ll worry about me. It’s a comfort to know that you care.

So what’s up… I have simply been sewing… That’s right, I have so much sewing to do I needed to take the month of April off just so I could get caught up. This means all patterns due out in April will be released in May and I will double them up so you get April and May together. We did get away last week for a trip to my sisters for Easter which was lovely, but other than that, I have been mainly at my sewing machine trying to get caught up. I will not be doing any Flickr Rewards until May either, but you still need to turn them in by the due dates for the past patterns.

So… here is some catching up news…

Welcome To Quilt Qwazy Queens Day 01


Worldwide Quilting DayLast year, this event was also held during the week of Worldwide Quilting Day. It’s a day that brings all of us together in a way that we don’t see every day. Those of us who love quilting, feel a part of something special. Like your birthday, it’s your day, the one you wait for all year long, Worldwide Quilting is like your birthday, for each of us, it’s a day for something we love as a community and we all celebrate it in our own way, even if it just quietly passes by.

Like last year tho, it’s not going to quietly pass by, many quilting sites are celebrating the event, and 18 of us have gotten together to celebrate it with you over the next few days leading up to and after Saturday.

Companies have offered giveaways to help us celebrate and you can win one of the wonderful items they have offered to giveaway over the next 5 days.

My Newest Project and the First for Island Batik…

Island Batik Kennel Quilts

Kennel QuiltsAs a quilter, I feel fairly secure at just thinking about simple designs and being able to stitch them out without a pattern whatsoever. I don’t know if this comes from experience, or my mind just being able to put things together…

I think when it comes to working with simply projects we all can probably think in terms of a simple design and just wing it… That’s what I did with February’s project for Island Batik. The project was to be making a kennel quilt and then giving it to your local shelter or a shelter listed at TQPM magazine. I’m just going to take mine to the local shelter, but I’m hoping to make a few more before I get there.

12 Days of Christmas Day 12

12 Days D12-1

12 Days D12-1I know I am very late today, I never meant to post so very very late. I am sure it’s because I took on to much for today’s post, but I hope you will think it’s worth it. I really appreciate your patience.

I look forward to this event, each year I’ve had my blog opened I’ve done something for Christmas. Last year, I had made a lot of tree patterns, and I had remembered that Janeen also does a 12 days event on her blog. I wrote her and asked if we could do it together and it’s been fun to do it last year and this year. This year, we got together on the same project and came up with the Gingerbread Village for you. This is a fun way to bring people to our blog, and still say Thank You for visiting. We hope you’ll come back for more next year. 

So, first, a Huge Huge Huge Thank You for visiting me this year, visiting Janeen, encouraging us to bring you the best of what we have to offer you. It’s a real delight to hear or read a great comment, or see a thank you, or even just wishing us well because you may not have seen us post for awhile. Believe me, if you weren’t visiting, I doubt I’d still be running a blog.

So let’s get to the nitty and the gritty.. Today’s last release… I have for you the Sledding Ginger pattern featured in Block 9 of Janeen‘s pattern. Train 08, Continue reading
