Spring Cleaning… from Seams To Be Sew

I didn’t need to do too much to clean my sewing room. While I’m not a sloppy person I don’t let little things bother me either… I also am not someone who just throws things around, when I’m done working with a project everything gets put back into place when I am working on something it’s stored in a little bin by my machines or cutting areas. I’m currently working on two blocks of the month projects, so those parts are hanging about my sewing and cutting areas. A few years ago I did ...

Quilt Qwazy Queens 2020 and The Funny Things… from Seams To Be Sew

Oh yes, I’ve definitely been enjoying the projects I’ve seen so far and at the same time been truly inspired by what’s been shown. I am so happy that my dear friend Joan continued with the tradition of keeping this blog hop going this year and so a HUGE Thank you to Joan at Moose Stash Quilting for a wonderful job in organizing this hop this year.

Quilt Qwazy Queens Hop, 2020, and More… from Seams To Be Sew

Today is the start of the hop which represents all of us with Worldwide Quilting Day right around the corner this Saturday… Did you know that March is National Quilting Month? I did not know this until just a few days ago… I was amazed because I know September is National Sewing Month and I had the impression that quilting was just included in that. So it was a surprise to me to find out this is also National Quilting Month. Quilt Qwazy Queens is a 5-year-old hop as of this year, that I hosted for the first four years ...

Color It Red…. Day 04 is here at Seams To Be Sew Today… from Seams To Be Sew

When I join a blog hop I like it to do something that challenges me. That hasn’t always been how it’s worked out, but for the most part I like to do things I haven’t done before or try new techniques that interest me. For as long as I can remember I have had a love for Sashiko. Back in the ’90s at a quilt show, I saw this absolutely gorgeous quilt that I just fell in love with. While I’m not a blue person, her quilt was dark blue and used a white thread. I ...

Yes It’s Time For …. Row Along Signups for the 6th Year… from Seams To Be Sew

Each year that goes by, I think to myself, it seems so early to do signups for an event that isn’t even going to start for another 8 months. At the same time, it does take time to get your ideas in place, draw your pattern, create the pattern, then sew the test pattern out. Are you curious about this year’s theme? The picture says it all, but the theme this year is based on gardens of all types… Thus we are having a garden party and everyone is invited. Today is your chance to sign up for ...

I’m having some Winter Blues….. from Seams To Be Sew

I am definitely blue if there is no snow on the ground during Winter… I love love love snow as some of you know from my postings on my Facebook personal page. I often post pictures when we get snow and we’ve now been weeks without some snow, even a hint of it…. nada… We had such a good start to Winter with 4 or 5 snow storms between October and November but then.. BOOM, they just went away… I’ve never been a fan of the color blue, it does remind me of being down and sad… However ...

New Year Coming, New Events Coming… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi Everyone, and Welcome to almost 2020… What an amazing time this is? We are moving into a new decade, and everything is new again with a new year. I love approaching a new decade, I must admit that I think a new decade brings many great things to look forward to. We can ask ourselves, what’s the latest technology going to be? Just as pc’s and desktops became popular in the ’90s, and cell phoneitis hit the 2000 era, and shopping online has been a major thing now since 2010… All of these things gave us new ...

Day 12 of 12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun… A little burp… from Seams To Be Sew

Well, somehow I managed to go and lose the pdf files that I’d created for these last patterns. I did these last summer for this event, so thought they were just sitting in the folder waiting to be released… I have no idea what happened to the pdfs, but I can’t release a pattern without a pdf, so, unfortunately, I had to set about re-creating all of the pdfs again. I had the patterns proofed last night by my testers to be sure we caught any mistakes as I’ve never written so many patterns all at once ...

I’ll Be Gnome For Christmas … Day 11 of 12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun… from Seams To Be Sew

I’ve had such a fun time this year releasing a series of gnomes and still have more patterns to go, but for Christmas, I created 9 gnome patterns. At first, this was to be the only release for the gnomes themselves, but then some matching homes came out for the gnomes and I decided to add them last minute to the pattern. I made this decision last week, and my testers have been busy stitching ever since. Houses 2 and 4 are not quite ready yet so they haven’t been released today, but you can get a lovely ...

Woooo, day 10 already … where has the time gone?? Just two more days and we’ll be done. Please remember, no patterns will be posted this weekend. You can download this pattern today tho all weekend long for those of you who can’t get around daily to download them. Today’s patterns are influenced by another memory of my childhood.

12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun – Day 09 from Seams To Be Sew

I do hope you’re enjoying the patterns. From some of the comments, I’ve received this week I can see that a few of you are. I don’t just read comments here on my blog, but those in Facebook also. I definitely appreciate those of you who take the time to comment. It makes me feel happy that you take the time to say thank you or to just say you like them. With my internet issues this past week I’ve been just crazy about how to get the patterns online, but I also know those of ...

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 ...
