Twas The Night Before Christmas Block 8 Released… and Other News…

TTNBC-08The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
gave the lustre of midday to objects below, is block 08 of Twas The Night Before Christmas. Isn’t it a beautiful block?

Much like the first block in some ways but I love the night sky, the snow falling, and the additional trees that the artist added to the block. I do not think it was easy for him to come up with artwork for the lines in this part of the story.

This is the Flickr Reward block.

In other news….

I’ve had a report that while purchasing products in the cart at payhip, an issue has arisen that is a problem with the cart itself. I’ve reported the issue to Payhip, but they can’t guarantee how long it will take to fix the issue.

Payhip 1

It doesn’t seem to matter what device you use, whether it’s a laptop, desktop or mobile device, once you start adding multiple items you’ll come to a point where you can’t see the checkout button. In order to get around this, you’ll have to delete an item(s) from your cart until you can see the checkout button.

Payhip 2

It does depend on the device you use, in a laptop, you can get about 4 items on your cart list, in a mobile device, I’m not even sure you’d get 2 items, and on a desktop, you can get about 10 items before it disappears. In some cases, you could change your resolution on your monitor, but you’d have to change it back once you’re done. 

As a recommendation, it is easier to just check out, then go back and add the items you had to delete and go thru the cart again. It’s the only way I can think of at the moment to get around this issue.

As a result of this issue, I have extended my sale thru Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Use the coupon code:


at my Payhip Shop

This sale is on all patterns released prior to October 31, 2017.
To my knowledge, all patterns that are in the Craftsy shop are also in my Payhip shop with the exception of the new recently released patterns for November 2017.

And coming on Friday, December 01, 2017

I do not anticipate a release of Sunbonnet Sue and Sam until sometime in December after 12 Days. I am sorry, time escaped me this month and I haven’t had the time to work on them if I find it, I will, but with my hand, the upcoming wedding of my niece and 12 Days, there is very little time to work on the block of the months.

Here is a preview of those blocks

Delaware and Iowa

and Ontario, Canada

Twas The Night will hopefully have a release in late December for the 9th and 10th blocks

This is a preview of block 09

    Hello Marian just went to buy some of your wonderful patterns and the payhip code did not work not sure if it’s the time zone difference I live in Australia and the time frame ran out? Thanks for your wonderful patterns and thanks for being so generous with your time to organise the great sew alongs. Jacqui

      It should be fixed now Jacqui, I wasn’t sure if the coupon code would end at midnight and I guess it does, so have changed it to end for tomorrow. It should be ok now.

    I love all the wonderful Sues and Sams coming up! And the sleigh is great, as is the one you released today. What a terrific group of appliqué blocks. Thank you so much, Marion. I might have to go back and buy more blocks on Monday. =) Yours was one of two places I spent Black Friday money. There wasn’t that much to spend. LOL
