Valentine Love & Chocolate Box Released…

This is a really quick post today, I was right in the middle of finishing up my applique block for the Island Batik blog hop when I realized I needed to post. I discovered the coolest technique today just by sheer accident and I can’t wait to share it all with you. I plan to do it on my day of the hop, it should be quite fun and I think you also will just love it.

In the meantime, today I have a free block for you, and another continuous line design from Dottoo Dots.

Today’s Continuous Line Design Release is
this fabulous Chocolate Box from the wonderful artwork of Dottoo Dots

and look at the fun you could have creating a border design from these…

Chocolate Box Border 1

and

Chocolate Box Border 2

I love these, fun and fancy and so darn cute.

Permission was granted by Roy Reed to allow me to use his artwork for creating Continuous line design patterns.

Today’s Free Pattern

I’ve also updated the Flickr Reward form today (for some reason I keep forgetting to do this) so that you can request your Flickr blocks for the current Sue/Sam’s.

I thank you for all the lovely comments yesterday, it was honestly not my intention to make you feel guilty. Sometimes I just get annoyed and I take it out on the first thing to come along, can you imagine how my little “Boo” wonders about me sometimes, no wonder she sits in her little doggie bed all day with me in the sewing room. I am so thankful for her, she has greatly increased my happiness levels and is such a wonderful dog. We really lucked out finding her at the rescue shelter last year.

    It is still 1/19 and I can’t get into this free pattern. I’m logged into my account. Got the dog pattern but can’t get the LOVE one. argh!

    • Marian says:

      there was an extended time period for the download, but this pattern was never meant to be available “thru” Friday, and it does say above the click the image that it is a 24 hour download also, so while I get that it is confusing, it was never going to be held freely also thru Friday.

  2. Pattern looks pretty. For me to there was a message saying coupon expired. Since you have not specified the time it would expire I am not sure if I was accessing after you took it off or not. Anyway… thank you.

    • Marian says:

      I’m sorry you missed it Sobana, the coupons always expire at midnight on the timezone I have set in the cart, which is the same as the host in the central standard time zone.

    My email says it came in at 5:26am and now it is only 2:15pm same day and the payment section says the coupon has expired!
    So disappointed :-((

    Thanks, Marian … Time for me to do a V-Day block. You really do share so much. I, for one (or 100) am very grateful. The BOM list is soooo helpful.

  5. Susan Spiers says:

    Thank you, my first valentine block this year! Wonderful!

    Thanks Marian. I have a problem getting the block because my web browser keeps telling me, “This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised. Learn More.”
