Happy New Year!

 

Hello! and Happy New Year 2022!! 

I hope this year you are all blessed and have tons of time to sew!



This year we will be making Dinosaurs!! Yaaaay!

First up we have a Zuniceratops
The pattern measures 12x16"


Did you know that the word 'Ceratops' means horns on the head...
hmmm, now I know too...



You can adopt your Dinosaur for $1 from my Online Shop.
The small fee goes towards feeding all the animals.... thanks!


*** A lot of people ask me why the $1 for the block and all I can say is that I also need 
to support my family after both my sons lost their jobs during covid lockdowns and 
everyone is back here at home with mom.

Welcome back to Quilt Club 2022

12 Days Finale!

 


Hello to all fellow Sugar Cookie Enthusiasts!

Today is the last day of our
12 Days of Christmas 2021
'Sugar Cookies' Edition



This is the center block of the Sugar Cookies Mini Quilt / Wall hanging / Table Decoration.

The Gingerbread House Cookie block measures 16" (42 cm) 
and is also on the easier side of Intermediate level.


I have loved each of these cute cookie blocks and I hope you all have too.

You can find your warm Gingerbread House Sugar Cookie
for $4 in my Online Shop.



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

Before we run off....

I want to talk about the 
Gingerbread Village EBook


This was a 12 Days event we made in 2016
It was an event that Marian Pena from Seams to be Sew and I worked on together
and presented it as a joint project.

I made the Village background and she made the Gingerbread Men to go with the village.


After Marian passed away in March 2021, it just seemed to hang in limbo about how this was going to  work now. I have since seen that her shop has been completely closed down and now this half of our project is hanging in the air. I've tried to find any of her patterns etc. but it seems they are all down now too.


I have decided that I am going to add Marian's half of the project to my Gingerbread Village EBook as a free 'add on' to complete the quilt. The price of the EBook is only for my patterns and the Applique gingerbread men that Marian made are a Free Add On with it.

If you have purchased my Gingerbread Village in this past year (2021) only!! then you can contact me about getting the Gingerbread Men to go with the EBook. ( janeenvn@gmail.com )
I can look up your purchase in my shop and then send you the Add On.

Day 10,11 and 12

 


Hello! 
and welcome to our 2021
12 Days of Christmas
Sugar Cookies event

Our 12 Days has been full of ups and downs (seems usual for this time of the year)
we've ooh'd and aaah'd at the blocks we like
and frowned at those we're not so sure about - don't worry,
 just give the sugar time to do it's thing. You'll love them all in no time.


Today is already Friday Day #10
but I've decided to add the Day #11 and Day #12 to this post as well.

It was decided because I don't want to work on these over the week-end - I have to 
make the new blocks for the next year's BoM.


For Friday Day 10 we have a cute Gingerbread Boy Cookie (8")


For Saturday Day #11 we have a very grand Snowman Cookie (8")


and For Sunday Day #12 we have the lovely Gingerbread Girl Cookie (8")


The blocks will remain up in my shop for December BUT
after the 12 Days of Christmas event which ends on Sunday night 
the price will be $3 per small block.

The center block will be available on Monday when we have our Finale Sugar Rush 
The cute Sugar Cookie House measures 16" (42cm)
and will be $4.

After that Im combining everything into an EBook in January and it will sit proudly
with the other event books.


You can find your warm Gingerbread Boy, Girl and Snowman
 Sugar Cookies for $1 each in my Online Shop.

Don't worry if you haven't collected the others from previous days yet, 
they're all still there in the shop waiting for you.
(I have to pay the elves who bake them a little something, or we may have a mutiny on our hands)

Day 6



Hello and Welcome to our

12 Days of Christmas - Sugar Cookies event

Today is already halfway on the small 8" blocks

Today we have a cute Tree Sugar Cookie



This block is another cutie with fussy cut option
I added sprinkles to my tree.
 
Pattern measures 8" (21cm) and is really easy to put together.

I bought one of these tree cookies from the little home industry shop and it looked so dang cute. The little tree was so nicely decorated and it just screamed yummy!
After I got home and I broke a piece off - I nearly choked on it. Someone had added lemon juice to the icing, but not a dash for a little flavour, NO, the whole dang lemon. It was so sour you could gag...

Don't worry if you haven't collected the others from previous days yet, they're all still there in the shop waiting for you at the same price.
