New Events added to BOTM post… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi Everyone, it’s been a really interesting year thus far in 2020. Things happening that I never imagined in my lifetime are happening and it brings not only great sadness but depression to many people affected by what is happening in the world today. It makes it hard to get things done but the one thing we all have in common is sewing and quilting. So, let’s pick ourselves up and start a new project. Smile even when you don’t feel like doing so, say hi, and pray for peace in the world again. June was a ...

Absent but Here…. Some News, Not All The News… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi Everyone, I know I’ve been a bit absent on the blog for the last month or so. Like many people, I have kept my sewing machine busy making masks. I’ll be honest when I say that I didn’t really think I was going to make any masks at all, but then I got to thinking about how my family is going to need them, Frank’s family, and even a few friends, then I saw a charity that was looking for volunteers, so I went to the task of making masks. I made a few for ...

Fat Cat Patterns Added to BOTM for 2020… from Seams To Be Sew

I have been a fan of Sindy at FatCat Patterns for many years now. Each year I look forward to the new block of the month she will be offering. She’s changed how she does things now but a few dollars you can get a full quilt pattern. As you know I don’t advertise paid botm’s on my blog, but today by sheer accident I saw she had started a BOTM in her FB group. Sindy first offered Dog Days back in 2013. At the time I was just barely back into quilting and was only just ...

My 7th Anniversary … Sue-Sam Release… New QAL… from Seams To Be Sew

It’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 ...

Two New Awesome BOTMs… Pumpkin Patch and Tuning My Heart… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi 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 ...

WooHoo, WooHoo, WooHoo…. Is It Ok For Me To Be Excited???? from Seams To Be Sew

Each year with sheer anticipation I look forward to various designers and their block of the months. I just know they have planned something special for us that year. I am always saddened when they decide to take a break or stop for a year or so, but I totally get it also. The sheer amount of work that goes into a block of the month for free or for purchase is unbelievable. You can’t even imagine unless you’ve done one for yourself. At the same time, if you’re creating that quilt I know you look forward ...
