12 Days… Day 09 from Seams To Be Sew

I am finding it hard to believe that the time is passing so quickly. Only 3 more days to go and we are finished with 12 Days for 2018. I am glad you are enjoying the Snowmen this week. I’ve had fun creating them over the last six weeks prior to this event. Today I can’t blame my connection for lateness, I admit I was doing some final touchups on this pattern. The pattern today is not square, it is rectangular and the free version comes in the 9×12-inch size. The purchased pattern comes in the additional ...

12 Days… Day 08 from Seams To Be Sew

Today’s cute Snowman is from the wonderful artwork of Graphics and Graphics. Gabry is a talented artist who no longer produces artwork. It’s sad because she is so very talented. She lives in Italy and I had the privilege of getting to know her when we lived there. A lot of her artwork has appeared on my blog over the years, the Little Treasures BOTM was based on her artwork a few years ago and the Snowman featured last year during 12 Days was also part of her artwork. On Facebook, I use her artwork in my header ...

12 Days – Day 7 from Seams To Be Sew

This week, I will be featuring what is probably the number 1 thing that people think of when they think of Snow… and that is Snowmen. We’ll have 4 days this week of Snowmen. We’ll also have 1 day of Snowflakes and that day will also feature a fun tutorial also. I am still experiencing internet connection issues, but here I am at 2 am writing this post to get it out for the day. I wish there was a way to get people to read my posts. Those of you who do, a HUGE Thank You for ...

Another Quilt on the Clothesline from Romany Quilting

We can’t complain about the weather, summer had well and truly arrived after several days of horrible cold wind.  I’m enjoying sitting outside on the patio, under our shady Archgola, and Gemma likes to keep me company.  She has a fine time stalking little bugs and moths hiding in the lawn, or just lying around on the warm concrete path.  Then there are the birds chirping away in the high trees, tormenting her as they are not within reaching distance.

It’s such a beautiful warm day today with a slight breeze that ...

12 Days … Day 6 from Seams To Be Sew

So yesterday, I told you in my post that I had a companion block for the Hot Chocolate pattern. Obviously your thinking it goes with hot chocolate and to me it does. I feel you can’t go on a sleigh ride without a nice good thermos full of Hot Chocolate to help keep you warm under that blanket that’s probably covering your knees. Perhaps you have a “partner” alongside you with his or her arms wrapped around you, for me, it was my hubby, that is who I have had my sleigh ride with and it was one ...

12 Days … Day 5 from Seams To Be Sew

How could anyone go outside in the winter to come back inside and not sit down in front of a roaring fire with a wonderful cup of Hot Chocolate? I may not have the fireplace, but I do love Hot Chocolate. So today I share a cup with you… You will be receiving the 8×10 pattern of this cup, perfect size for a fun mugrug. I’m sorry the text in the image does not come with the free pattern. I do still seem to be having intermittent internet issues, guess I’ll break down and call Xfinity today ...

Getting in the Christmas Spirit from Romany Quilting

It was a bit like “Oh, I’d forgotten about that”, when I looked through the crates containing my Christmas things.  We didn’t decorate at all last year as we were away in our caravan traveling through the South Island  from mid December till March.  It was like greeting old friends as I dug through the crates, unwrapping this and that.  I have been very lucky over the years and have received some lovely gifts from my pen friend Carol, from South Dakota.  I love my little Santa sitting at his sewing machine, and she also sent me four ...

12 Days … Day 4 from Seams To Be Sew

My apologies to you all, there is no reason my internet should have been down all day yesterday but for some reason it was. I waited up until 3 am this morning for it to come back online steady enough that I could finish this post up but as it wasn’t totally down it was intermittent enough that I had part of the post written and just needed to add the links for the patterns today. Thus I never got that done. I usually write my posts then add the patterns to the carts. That way I can upload ...

12 Days of Snow – Day 3 from Seams To Be Sew

Do you remember as a child going out in the snow in those fun boots or galoshes? I sure remember the various different boots we wore over the years. From fancy to downright floppy flaps I remember them like it was yesterday. Today’s free pattern is like receiving 5 patterns in one. The snow boots come in 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12-inch sizes and you’re getting all 5 sizes of the pattern. I was happy you enjoyed yesterday’s pattern. I thought it was so adorable and I have more penguins to come soon. So let’s ...

Coming Friday… 12 Days Of!!! from Seams To Be Sew

Of the many events, I host each year, this one is probably my favorite. This is my 4th year doing the 12 Days event, I’d like to say it was my 5th, but the first year I really only gave away a few patterns at the first week in December. I’d only had my blog open at that time for about 9 months and had very little activity on it at the time. It wasn’t until the following year when I’d participated in many blog hops that I got the idea to do a 12-day event ...

Pumpkin Pumpkin, Who’s Got The Pumpkin… from Seams To Be Sew

Today is my day on this very fun blog hop which Carla from Creatin In The Sticks has hosted. It’s been full of fun and creative ideas and I have been awed and inspired these last few days with all the great projects that have been shown from the other bloggers. Thus the reason I love blog hops, we are each all so different, loving the same hobby, but we come together all wanting to do that person’s projects once you see it live. I love that about blogging and quilting. I have created my own project for ...

My First Block Of The Month… Do You Remember It? from Seams To Be Sew

It seems funny to me that it’s been four years now since I offered what was my first block of the month. They were these very cute dolls from Graphics and Graphics. It was called Little Treasures. I’ll show you some of the patterns in that set in this post for those of you not aware of it… I’ve often said how much I love seeing the patterns created, part of the reason I do my block of the months the way I do now is so that I can see them be done. I don’t ...

The Purple People Eater… Art With Fabric Blog Hop… from Seams To Be Sew

So there I was, debating what to create for this blog hop, and the only thing on my mind was Halloween and what to do with that blog hop… My mind was on the Purple People Eater… not that I ever saw the movie that this saying was made famous in, but to me, a people eater is like a monster that is purple… Ya’ll know I love monsters, so there ya have it, as my mind considered the Purple People Eater, Halloween approached and my project got done, time to move on to Art With Fabric’s project ...

The story of our backyard transformation, DIY retaining wall, sprinklers, and sod from edeenut

It's been years since I've had a house to settle in and make some changes to. Our house we own in Riverside, California that we lived in for over nine years is now a rental. We moved to Orange county and rented for 3 years and now we are renting in Arizona. We have been pretty content with the way the rentals were set up design wise. But in December we get to move into our newly purchased house and I'm so giddy to be at the point where I can make changes. Paint, new flooring, new ...

And My Project for Peek A Who… from Seams To Be Sew

I had originally created a set of Owl Placemats. However, they were a commissioned item for someone at Frank’s work. He took the placemats to work with him Tuesday without realizing I hadn’t taken the pictures yet. These were for a birthday gift for his boss, and the woman who was adding them with his other gifts was pestering him to bring the placemats to work, so thinking they were done and they were … he took them to work.. I looked everywhere on Wednesday for those placemats, realizing I should have left them in the sewing room as ...

And It’s the Last Day of Peek A Who… from Seams To Be Sew

It’s always sad when a fun event such as any blog hop we venture into ends. All the creativity and inspiration tho still goes on by each of these bloggers each time they post. Blogging is a very popular way to inform people of what you’re up to… One does not need to be famous to run a blog, some of the best bloggers I know are not famous and they are full of inspiration and creativity. Having events such as this one help to bring us all together since the one thing we love most is this ...

On This The 4th Day of Peek A Who… from Seams To Be Sew

We again have some very talented bloggers who will be showing off their wonderful projects. Yesterday we saw some outrageously fun projects that I know inspired me to get busy and finish a quilt… I was really hoping to do more of that this year but time just passes so quickly it seems and sometimes real life has to come first over my lonely Bernie who is waiting patiently for me to use him again… I have done some sewing this year, but my concentration is more on Christmas and my new grand nephew coming to us in the New ...
