Hello, hello, hello?  I guess this is working!  Can you hear me?  For some reason (I can only assume it's my age!), I thought this blog was no longer active!!  Looks like I am waking the sleeping beast from a three year hiatus, so here goes nothing!  Well, hopefully not "nothing" but I am going to give it a go in 2018! Baby steps!  I hope I can remember how I got here!

We (I) have finally monetized our "new in 2017" website,, so you can order directly from us!  I could not have done it without the patient, helpful people at Like Sew.

Some brand new patterns we are adding are Fire Fall by Minay Sirois, Native Spirit by Kris Holderness, and Summer Wedding by Jamie Janow Elfert. 

Fire Fall uses our Blooming Template for raw edge applique leaves.  It is especially interesting with striped fabric.

Summer Wedding uses a very simple to piece "H" block and creates a double wedding ring effect.  I wonder if you could use other letter blocks that are especially pertinent to the receiver?  Hmmm....

Native Spirit has alot of pieces but it is simple to piece and only has two blocks!  Plus we include instructions for a table runner!

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous and Prosperous New year!  Now I have to get back to baking my cookies for tomorrow's party at my son's place.    Hope you are spending time with loved ones too!  Bye til next time.  Happy sewing!  ---  Jackie
