My Featured Day for My Favorite Quilt Block Blog Hop… from Seams To Be Sew

I’m so crazy, what in the heck was I thinking… right in the middle of a row along I signed up for this hop, knowing full well how busy I’d be. I did not create a project for this hop, I just didn’t have the time. I had an idea, but it just never came about. So, I decided to take this post in a different direction. It still fits in with the theme of this blog hop so that I can properly post, but I am sorry there is no finished project to show you other ...

Pencils Down Tutorial from "...laugh yourself into *Stitches*, follow me..." ~Shakespeare~

For those who have purchased School's In Session quilt pattern, i thought it would be nice to do a step by step pencil tip tutorial!


Aren't those the best looking pencils ever?  I used Renee Nanneman's Harvest Moon  #8850-OY Smoke Yellow for the pencil.  It's so perfect!  The rest of the fabrics were pulled from my scrap drawer.


 So now for those pencil tips....
I offer great little diagrams inside the pattern, but if i can help you by taking it one step further and add pictures, well... you know...they are worth a 1000 words ...

A Moment of Your Time… from Seams To Be Sew

My blog has been open now for six years as of this past April. I have offered patterns free and for sale since about five years ago. My early patterns are very different from my patterns that I produce today. In some ways they are very much the same, but today I do more to have them be easier to understand and use. I wanted to take a moment of your time today to show you the results of the survey that some of you took the time to do when I asked with my last release of Sue and ...

Sue/Sam NewFoundland and Colorado Released along with CCOTM Apr/May… from Seams To Be Sew

Its been awhile coming and I’m truly sorry these updates are as slow as they have been. I honestly have good intentions on trying to release them quicker, but my health has to come first and that has bogged me down more than I thought it would this year. At 57, I feel sometimes like I’m never going to get better and my circulation issues continue to plague me. Between having the wound care visits to fix the foot ulcer and the physical therapy for my ciruclation I am starting to feel like I live at the care ...

I’m always sad on the last day of a blog hop… this one has been really fun seeing the crazy projects, whether you think they are crazy or not, sometimes it’s just the story behind the project that makes it really crazy as we have all seen so far.

Next year it will either fall on the 14th or the 21st. We shall see

My Craziest Project…. Today For QQQ… New Patterns Released Also… from Seams To Be Sew

My project is a wearable. When I first started quilting back in 1988, it never occurred to me to make wearables as a quilted project. At that time, rotary cutters were not even a widely used product in the quilting world. I had already been using a rotary cutter for cutting patterns with for clothing. I used drapery weights instead of pins for my patterns and then cut around those patterns with a rotary cutter. Suffice it to say when I took my first quilting class in January of 1988, I blew everyone in class away with how fast I ...

It’s A Black and White Day at Seams To Be Sew Today… from Seams To Be Sew

I do apologize for my recent absence. between working on Sue/Sam’s to get them ready for release, the Cupcake of the Month, and TTNBC, I’ve also had the flu, have been dealing with more leg issues.. Apparently, according to an Ultrasound I had, I have something called leaking veins. The doctor wants me to have laser surgery that she isn’t sure will even work to resolve the issue. My question is, why should I pay for a surgery that may not work? So, I’m debating it, in the meantime, another sore has cropped up on ...
