stbs-2016 12 Days of Christmas D07And here we are on Day 07 of 12 Days of Christmas, now half way thru this really fun event. Janeen’s village has been such a fun and wonderful way to build a cool Christmas village along with the added shapes and the train, I am certainly enjoying reading your comments and having fun just seeing your reactions.

I keep hearing your planning to make it, I sure hope you will share your photos once you do, I am happy to post them or see them on Facebook in the groups, or even if you post them to the Flickr feed for Seams To Be Sew.

Even Pinterest, if you post them to PInterest or your blog, please drop me a line, I really am interested in seeing your projects.

12 Days Of Christmas Day 05


stbs-2016-gingerbread-b2-on-snowGood Morning All, I apologize for being late this morning, I was writing the post last night and kept falling asleep at the laptop.. I finally decided to just write Janeen and let her know I’d be late today.

Today’s release marks 3 shapes to download, two of them for Block 02, and the other another part of the Train border. There are two pdf files, so be sure you download both files.

I thought I’d show you two ways the gingerbread can be done… just a slight adjustment makes this look just a little different.

stbs-2016 12 Days of Christmas D02

stbs-2016 12 Days of Christmas D02I heard some wonderful remarks yesterday about what you thought of the Gingerbread village Janeen and I have created for you. I promise, it’s only going to get better…

If you didn’t realize it… Janeen had 2 files for you to download yesterday. She has the full set of instructions with all the color charts available. I do not know if she will keep these up for you to download for all 12 days or not, but if you didn’t download it, be sure you grab that file if she still has it available to or you won’t know everything you need to about all the blocks.

For a short time today, my giftbox and lollipop will still be free, once I wake up today tho, they no longer will be free.

Today, I am releasing Gingerbread 1 and Continue reading

12 Days of Christmas Day 01

12 Days 2016 Day 01

12 Days 2016 Day 01

Today is the start of this really fun event that Janeen at Quilt Art and I have been cooking up for months now.

She did the background, and I’ve done the foreground.

Each day for the next 12 days, we will bring you a new background a new foreground block. We’ll try to sync our releases for the same time, but because we are a 8 hour time zone difference away, they may not always sync, so you might need to come back.

There may also be times when their are still two free patterns up, this will be because of 24 hours not finishing on the day old pattern yet, We both are committed to keeping the patterns available for 24 hours, so you will need to visit each day for the next 12 days. We will NOT give a free pattern after the 24 hours are up for the previous patterns. Please don’t ask us to.

Today, I am releasing the giftbox and Continue reading

It’s Creepy and It’s Crawly, It’s Eerie and It’s Spooky…

Eerie Nights BH

Halloween is here …. whether it’s the actual day or not, it’s all around us, even here on the base in base housing, when your driving around you see all the homes decorated with the ghosts, witches, hay bales, pumpkins and all the other fun decorations that remind us of this season.

By the time Halloween arrives in the states, I will be in my new home of Colorado. While we won’t be able to hand out candy to the trick or treators it will still be fun to see the event happen all around the city.

Thank you To Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy for taking over as hostess when I had to back out.

The Road Home – Last Day For Rows… Next Week Show ‘N Tell

Road Home Row along

stbs-Road Home tall bannerBack on September 06, when we started this event which has really inspired so many of us, I had the idea in my head that I only had last year’s Row Along to place my experience on. This Row Along has led to many new challenges and some insight, learning new things and experiencing the thrill of seeing bloggers who’ve never created a pattern before come out and really show they can do it. It’s been wonderful and the rows have been absolutely amazing, but the best I think has been the stories behind the rows. I’ve enjoyed every single story and it has helped me to learn more about some of my favorite bloggers along the way.

Today, we will visit Oklahoma, Georgia, Maine, New Hampshire and the Mojave Desert.

Show ‘n Tell day is Tuesday, October 11, 2016, and we’ll have several bloggers who will show you the great things they did with these rows. Even I have not seen these projects, so it will be a special treat to see how some of the bloggers pulled Continue reading
