My 7th Anniversary … Sue-Sam Release… New QAL…

Sue and Sam In New Jersey

Sue and Sam In New JerseyIt’s a busy day here in the Pena household… I’ve been planning to release Sue/Sam in New Jersey for several days, but so many things kept getting in my way. Then today, I was writing an email to someone when I had to give her my blog address and I realized today is my 7th year blog anniversary. I’ve owned this domain for 18 years, but as I’ve noted before in various posts that the first 11 years of this domain were related to being a web developer. The last 7 now as a blog.

Its been a really great experience being a blogger, I can still remember the day where I thought blogging was silly back when I was developing websites for others, but I saw how much fun my customers were having and when I decided to get back into quilting it was an easy choice to open a blog and see where it went. I never thought I’d enjoy the experience as much as I have, nor that I’d make such wonderful friends along the way. I know this blog is the reason I’ve made such wonderful friends.

Today I have for you a new Quilt Along and I promise you this isn’t an event you will want to miss, I also have for you, Sue and Sam In New Jersey being released… Continue reading

Block Of The Month 2020Hi Everyone, I’m posting today because my internet was down all day yesterday and drove me nuts trying to get back online. Xfinity couldn’t figure out what was wrong either although they’d been to my neighborhood yesterday morning and had fixed an issue. For me, it turned out to be an internet setting that I needed to change. It was odd, it took me until 5 pm in the afternoon to check my laptop and see if the internet was working on it and it turned out it was. I wish I’d thought to check it earlier in the day but no, it just never occurred to me. Most of the time I sat around waiting and waiting and waiting for Xfinity to call me back. That was annoying. Either or, my apologies to Beatrice, I had told her in an email I’d get this posted for yesterday and then didn’t well couldn’t get it done. So my sincerest apologies Beatrice.

Today when browsing one of my FB groups, I found another botm that has started so I’m posting both here for you on yes, a Saturday but I promise you, Saturday’s are not going to become a regular posting habit for me also. 🙂

Both of these, of course, have also been added to my Block of the Month 2020 page. Continue reading

stbs 2020 Louisiana 600x300 1

stbs 2020 Sam Louisiana bI’ve been saying it for days, but trying to finish last week just took me in so many different directions. I’d planned to release this Saturday night then got sidetracked by a mistake I noticed so needed to fix it today and retest it so I knew it was correct. Thus I had to fix what I’d already written into the pattern.

Calico Patch Christmas With Sue

Calico Patch Christmas With SueI love my followers, ya’ll are so wonderful about letting me know about new BOTM’s, or events going on the web… it allows me to help share with the rest of you. A Huge Thank You to Marge, she wrote to me yesterday about a new BOTM she found and thought I’d like to post it on my blog.

Each month a free new pattern. This is adorable, a Sunbonnet Sue Christmas botm. I have added it to my botm page for the Around The Web BOTMs. The January block is up and will be up until February 29, 2020. I do not know if the blocks will still be free after February 29, 2020, or not, so be sure you get to there website to download. They have precut kits also available to purchase if you want to make it quick and easy.

A little oops, I forgot to post the url on this post yesterday when I wrote it, so have linked it on the image above.

Sue & Sam – Nebraska and Idaho Arrive At Seams To Be Sew Today…

SS Neb IDA

Today I SS Neb IDAhave for you Sue & Sam in Nebraska and Idaho. I know it seems like it’s been a while, but 12 Days kept me very busy as did the rest of December and January.  Because I’m also trying to finish up Twas the Night I have held off doing these and at the same time, I do expect to have at least two releases per month over the next few months of 2 states per release. I need to finish Twas The Night which is just two more blocks and then it’s done and we’ll be zooming on Sue/Sam in the USA… I won’t finish by my March deadline, but I do think we can finish by June 2020 if all goes well.

We are finally at the halfway point for Sunbonnet Sue/Sam… doing 50 states is a big undertaking, Nebraska is the 25th state, and Sue/Sam USA is now 50 blocks large. Idaho makes it the 26th state, so we are now more than halfway done… LOL!! and there are 52 blocks. In the end, you’ll have 100 blocks for this botm.

You’ll notice some changes in the pdf patterns. Continue reading

Sunbonnet Sue and Sam In Florida Released…

I was hoping to get this posted yesterday, but I forgot that it was my day at the doctor’s. Sometimes it’s just in and out and other times it’s half the day. Yesterday was one of those half the day kind of things. I’d had an infection in both my feet for the last few weeks, so she couldn’t do her normal thing four weeks ago when I was last in, Two weeks ago it was canceled due to a snowstorm in the area. My doctor drives in from Denver to treat people on Wednesdays each week. So I am sorry it didn’t get posted yesterday, but here I am today with Florida being released.

Sam is the free pattern for Florida.

Let’s get to the download…
