12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun Days 06, 07, and 08 from Seams To Be Sew

I am not a happy camper these last few days.. no internet, over 700 emails downloaded this morning to my inbox (those of you who haven’t heard from me, you will once I am online for any amount of time). I’m getting these up as quick as I can today.. Tomorrow will be scheduled to go off at midnight mst so that if I am offline you can still get the pattern. I am seeing that some of you had issues downloading the Polar Bear which was the free pattern in Saturday Nights post. Please note, if your ...

Cupcakes and Ornaments – Day 05 of 12 Days… from Seams To Be Sew

Sadly, I’ve been without internet most of yesterday, and most of today. It finally came back on about an hour ago and I got to finishing up the uploading of the patterns. I was writing this post yesterday when it went down and stayed down. Apparently the troubles with the neighbor’s cable were not done with, they had to come and fix something in the ground.. Tore up the road and everything yesterday. So I’m writing this post really fast on a Saturday to get it out to you. I do have a doctor’s appointment first ...

On The Naughty List – 12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun Day 04… from Seams To Be Sew

Hard to believe we are now on day 04 of 12 Days. It always just goes by so quickly when I hold this event each year and it just seems to get more and more frantic. I know I am a bit late posting today, but I slept until just after noon today with having to get all the stuff done I normally do in a day on the internet done last night, so having to get everything ready to get this posted took me a few hours. Today’s post is all about those memories I have of getting ...

12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun … Day 03 from Seams To Be Sew

I am so so sorry… my internet has been down long before I even got up this morning to write the post and get the patterns uploaded. I have no idea what time it went down, but the cable guy was outside of the neighbor’s house all day I gather trying to get it fixed. I finally have internet again, so I am getting these up very quickly now. Today’s pattern is a lovely hot cup of cocoa with a cinnamon stick. Who doesn’t love hot cocoa in the wintertime let alone at Christmas? Please note, because ...

12 Days of Christmas Day 02 … Frosty’s Friends… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi Everyone, I’m so happy you liked the Unicorn pattern yesterday. I liked the whole series and it was really difficult to decide which of the patterns to offer as a free pattern, but I went with the Unicorn because I’ve never created a unicorn pattern before and thought you might like the change, thus the reason. prior to that, it was going to be the doggy, but at the last moment, I went with the unicorn. To those of you who took the time to comment, THANK YOU!!! Hearing your thoughts and such is so nice. Please ...

12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun!!! Day 01 from Seams To Be Sew

This is the event that I look forward to each year all year long. Yes, I love the row along, but 12 Days is an event that I do by myself on my own blog each year. No one else is involved. Like the Row Along this year, this is my 5th year of doing this 12 Days event. Each year it always starts on a different date, but I try to get it started near the first of December. It just happens that the first was on a Sunday this year and I do not like to post on ...

Wrapping up from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


After the late finish on the first day of presentations, I stayed in Cochrane. I wasn't about to travel to Timmins in the dark when I was tired. I was up early yesterday and back on the road. There was a bit of snow coming down but nothing too significant. The roads were just fine.

If you've never traveled in Northern Ontario this is what the roads look like. YES  - I stopped in the middle of the road to take that picture.

The "traffic" in Northern Ontario
I've driven across Canada in my car in various segments ...

It's all about the Polar Bears from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


What a great day!!! I presented my session twice yesterday. We had loads of people in both sessions and that was very exciting. It's super fun to share samples with people, provide tips and also to showcase the incredible new sewing and embroidery machine - the Husqvarna Viking Designer EPIC 2, the Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S400 serger and the Husqvarna Viking Platinum Q165 quilting machine. I haven't had a chance to play with the Platinum Q165, but I can't say enough about the other two machines. So MUCH FUN!

And there's so much new technology integrated ...

Twas The Night B19 and B20 Are Released… Nifty Novelties Winners Announced… from Seams To Be Sew

You know, I’m not a fan of posting on weekends, but because I want to get the TTNBC blocks out to you, I’m posting today. So it’s that time again for the next block release… I forgot how long these take me to finish once they come back from the tester, but I am still determined to finish them by the end of the year and hopefully before that. Don’t be surprised if I release a set during 12 Days as I want to finish them. Block 19 and Block 20 were uploaded this weekend to ...

I feel like a dork!!! Nifty Novelties Day 02, my project… from Seams To Be Sew

I am so dumb, last night I finished my post, and went to bed… leaving it on “draft” .. not published, but thinking I had published it for this morning. So here I am, all my dorkiness in tow… I’ve made for this hop a simple project, nothing big or fancy, but something I haven’t done before. I absolutely love novelty prints tho.  Next to blenders they are my favorite print to work with. Even tho I don’t do it that often. Normally when I work with novelty prints, I either fussy cut the area I want or ...

Nifty Novelties Day 02… from Seams To Be Sew

I loved how all the bloggers did such cool projects yesterday. Whether it’s new or old, even not finished, seeing what we do with fabrics, prints, novelties, batiks, is always so inspiring. The very reason I love sewing and quilting so much is that I can create the same project over and over, but each different fabric I use tells me its own story. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone else’s projects today and Monday. Keep in mind you have up to a week to enter each of the giveaways. There are 10 different giveaways in all ...

I Was Suppose To Be Yesterday… On The Witchy Stitchy Blog Hop… from Seams To Be Sew

It’s not even an oops, I forgot… I blundered and put the wrong bags on the living room couch for my hubby to take to work. I have to tell you the whole story for you to understand why I goofed up so badly. You see, when we lived in Italy, and I learned about the row by row experience, I was lucky enough to have several people send me some row patterns back in 2015. By that time, I was teaching Sarah how to sew, and had created a group of moms who also lived on and around ...

Creating Layouts In EQ8 With Photos from Seams To Be Sew

My first EQ8 tutorial since it came out and it’s longer than even I’d anticipated it was going to be. I really edited out a lot of stuff to get it to an hours length, so I do apologize that it’s lengthy, but you all know I try to give as much info as possible. I’m not one who makes tons of 2 minute videos so you can watch 50 different pages of videos on the same thing or in parts, I like to get it all in the same video, so my video lessons always ...

Once Upon A Story Show And Tell Day …. from Seams To Be Sew

It’s that day of the row along when we showcase the projects made from some of the rows. This is the last day of the row along and it’s always a difficult day for me to write the last post.  First, and foremost a HUGE thank you to the designers, I can’t do this without your participation and it’s your creative spirit and your willingness to give away a free pattern that always makes this event a success. To the sponsors, you are just as important, Thank you so much!!! We use your products and your ...
