September News

 

Hello everyone!

Its already September and for me living in the southern hemisphere that means that spring has begun, warmer weather is on its way and the wind of August can just calm the heck down now.. you have successfully moved ALL the dust from outside to inside. Good job...

Its time for another Dog block and this month 
we have a cute as can be
Border Collie.




The pattern measures 12" (31 cm)
You can adopt your Collie for $1 from my Online Shop.
The small fee goes towards feeding all the other dogs in the shelter.... thanks!

******************************


Today we also have the last of our Cats from the Cat Quilt a Long


Our last cat measures 14x18" and is on the easy intermediate level.
If you have a cat then you will know the 'snooty walk' this cat is showing off.





************************************  


Also on the line up is our CLUB patterns
For September we have a cute Penguin (16") and a Modern Vase of Flowers (24")






This has been our year so far...

August News


 Hello everyone!

Im hoping you're all well. I've come through this horrible covid and feeling loads better. Just this stupid cough that I can't shake.

Thank you to everyone who was so incredible and kind during this past month. I really appreciate all of you helping me out, sending me such beautiful messages and condolences. 

I sold 246 dog blocks this past month with some of you purchasing multiples of the block and then some. Thank you! Thank you!

Asking people to pay a mere $1 for the dog block seems to have grieved some because our free blocks went out at 988 in January and have come down to an average of 650 in each of the other months. I was also sent messages and notes about how "extremely unfair" and other things I was being.....

This month we have another in our DOGS blocks.

This is a Boxer and measures 12" (31cm)

Don't you just love those head tilts they do


 

Our line up so far this year.

The Boxer will also be part of the $1 blocks. Thanks.
For those who feel this is so outrageous that you cannot support me with this, its all good. 

You can adopt your Boxer for $1 from my Online Shop.

*****************************


So far we had 4 cat blocks - and now... We have our 5th
A cute as can be  - it's a Cat Gang (14x18")



This is our line up so far...


You can find your cute Cat Gang HERE in my shop.

This months CLUB patterns
The Modern block (24") is a Beagle and the Nature block (16") is a Lotus flower.


Our year so far...

July - already!

 

Hello everyone!
Its already July and time for more Dog blocks.

This month will be different tho'

I need your help...
This is a photo of my mom (Elizabeth) and her brother John 
My mom was 87 the other day and said she wasn't feeling so great.
After a week of lying in bed and visibly declining 
my mom died on Monday 28 June.

The problem is her funeral and costs will be R20 000 and I don't have it.
So Im asking that you please buy the Block of the Month for $1 so that I can 
somehow make up some of that money. 

Thank you for understanding.


This is the Block of the Month for July.
Its an Alsatian and really just seems fitting as both of them loved these dogs.



You can adopt your Alsatian for $1 from my Online Shop.

The Cats Quilt a Long pattern, The CLUB patterns and the New Issue #30 
will also all be in my online shop.

June BoM, QaL, CLUB

 


Hello everyone!
Wow, it's June already. 

We start off this month with our Block of the Month - Dogs block
For June we have a cute little Western Highland Terrier or more affectionately known as a Westie.

This cute guy looks like his name should be Teddie Westside.... 


Our block measures 12" (31cm) and is on the intermediate level.



We now have all our smaller dogs and will be moving on to the 6 larger dogs from July. There are just too many dogs out there.... to choose the 12 I love is really hard. Who's in and who's out is not as easy as you think.
You can adopt your Westie from my Online Shop.

This is our 3rd Cat in the Cat's QaL.

Here we have a cute geometric cat reaching up to grab something. Most times its your leg and they want their 'fishy' right now. Right NOW!!

This is our collection of patterns we have gathered in the CLUB this year (started in Feb.) 
The 'birthday' block or the 'mid year' block (the wooden puzzle 10") I will email to those who belong to the club in the coming week.
The software didn't have an option of sending a block on your birthday, so now I'm doing it this way.


This CLUB is a subscription group that you can belong to
where we will be making modern blocks, random animals and birds, have a block swap and generally loads of fun. Emails are sent with the links to your new patterns.

Older months blocks (Back issues of patterns) can be gotten from me directly for $12 per month you need. You will need to be part of the club to get them tho'

The subscription will be US$12 per month for as long as you like.
