Landscape Row #4





Hello everyone!


We need to get back to the
Landscape Rows....



























We're finishing up with Landscape Row #4


I forgot I was using the old pattern I made a long time ago and my row doesn't have the extended landscape to it. No biggie....

I've seen 2 of the other rows made and uploaded onto facebook and they're really amazing!!



I will also upload the Landscape Row #5 to Craftsy
This has a very Asian feel with Cherry trees.

I changed a few of the round balls (leaves) to a green colour on the pattern, but feel free to keep them all pink if you like it that way.





I made a start on my row and its really sweet....

I just have to put it to one side and finish up a few other projects that are screaming for attention.


The row measures 12x40" (31x129cm) and is on the intermediate level.












*** Please Note!!!

Craftsy seems to be experiencing some or other problem when clients are trying to buy my patterns.... They don't seem to be completing the order and not going through.... and Craftsy says they cant find the problem and tells clients it's something I need to fix............WTH!!!!! How would I be able to fix their site???? and not all are experiencing this, it seems to be only on some transactions.

If you are experiencing problems, then please email me and we can do the transaction without Craftsy. I've been sending patterns via email to people all weekend after they pay with paypal so its all good!!             (janeenvn(at)gmail(dot)com)

Day #3 of the Christmas in July Giveaway!





We're already on Day #3 of the Christmas in July Giveaway!
Time really does fly when you're having FUN!!


For day #3 we have a cute Christmas Star pattern.


The pattern measures 10" (25cm) and is on the Intermediate Level

I made the star have a small square so that there are not a whole lot of points at the centre to match up... I've tried and tried on those and I still cannot get it right or that it lies flat....
With the small square in the centre you can rotate your seams behind it and it should be a whole lot better.

You can download your FREE for the day pattern HERE......
I hope you enjoy sewing these blocks...


and just before you go...
A few old and some new Christmas patterns....




What did you get me?...



Night before Christmas....


In the Chimney....

WIP Wednesdays...

Hello there everyone...

What do we have on the table today?



Our Landscape Rows QAL 


This is Landscape Row #4. I've been sewing a little on this on and off and its almost done.... I just have the last block in the row to finish up with and its on to the next one...
I'll finish up writing the instructions on the new one and then I'll add it to my Craftsy shop.



ALSO:

I've finished with the Snapshot #3



This is Pepsi - a 4yr old Jack Russel who thinks she's the queen bee.... also sometimes called Miss Pooches.

I wanted to make the snapshots a 'close up' of whatever I'm making so that it has a more modern approach to it. Not really sure it's working.....we'll see...

Now to go for a walk about and find the next snapshot...

July Wild Babies Block of the Month

Hello everyone!!

It's that time again....... where we meet the next Wild Baby block...

For July we have................. (drumroll please...)




A cute little Tiger cub....

Isn't he just adorable!!








This is the image with solid colours....             And here it is with fabrics inserted....

The block measures 16" (41cm) and is on the harder intermediate level.





The little face was designed to one side like this so that you could eventually add the whiskers to the face too.

Little Tigers have long and prominent white whiskers on the nose, chin and above the eyes.










Here is the block that came back from the tester....
Its absolutely GORGEOUS!!! This block was sewn by Lisa England. Thanks so very much! I just love your sewing skills!


I really hope you enjoy sewing this one just as much!!

Pattern for July is FREE for the month
