Santa Stop Here

 These are the words, that are music to children's hearts...

and this time of the year, we all have a little child in us now, don't we?

What better way to show the big guy we are waiting for him, 
 than with a "Garden Flag" hanging right where you want him to park his sleigh?
This is another in my Garden Flag series for Thermoweb, using their 
I love that you can take the fun outdoors, using this unique product.
It paints on easily and cleans up with water.
You choose the degree of protection you need, by adding up to 3 layers.

Check out my post on the Thermoweb Blog
and download the free pattern for yourself.

May Santa bring you lots of goodies this year!
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
Oh I gotta go, I think I hear him now!

Making a List and Checking it Twice...

My list was so big that I needed a "bucket"!

Thermoweb is having a week long "Black Friday" sale, starting Monday November 22.

I love creating with these products.
You better start making your list and checking it twice.

Here are some of my all time favorties...

I do wish you all, a very Happy Thanksgiving this week. 
It's a good time to count our blessings, and start the holiday eating binge!
I'm thankful, I'm not worried about the calories until next year now.

Talking about calories...
Make sure you join us for "Crazy Carols Calorie-palooza"!
Well, OK, maybe it's not really called that, and Carol really isn't crazy at all.
But she is hosting her yearly "Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange" starting Dec 6.

But you need to hurry, as she is finalizing the schedule soon.

Sneak Peek at 2022 Blog Hops

What's a Blog Hop, you ask?
It's like a quilt show, you can participate in, or visit in your PJ's,
right there in front of your computer!
No admission fees, no entry fees, and best yet...
You just make a quilt or sewing project, in the theme of the hop 
and share away on your blog!
Yep...that's what we call a "Blog Hop"!

Posting 101
There is plenty of time to see what's coming up,
 and it's important that you post on your scheduled day. 
Life happens...if your project isn't finished, that's ok, show us what you have anyway.
Sometimes its nice to know we aren't the only one, who is behind the 8-ball.
Unfortunately folks remember if you are a no-show, so don't be one of those!

Blog Hop Etiquette 101
Visit all the blogs in the hop. You find the most incredible folks
 and make such good friends.
Leave them a little sugar, by saying something sweet about their posts.
You know it makes your day to read them, as well!

Blog Hop Nice-ities
Have fun, inspire each other with your projects. Share patterns or tutorials.
Have a give-away, or don't have a give-away, that's completely up to you.
Please share pattern information in your post. We all love patterns now, don't we?
Invite new bloggers to join in. We love seeing our hops grow. Best yet...we cherish the old faces and friends we have met along the way. 
(OK, I don't really mean, you all have old faces! LOL)

Your information
Your name, blog name, complete blog URL and email
 are never sold or shared. 
We use it for scheduling purposes, of the hop only.

With that being said...

We would like to announce, next years hops!

Carol from "Just Let Me Quilt"
Carla from "Creatin' in the Sticks"
and I have been busy putting our heads together and we think we have come up
 with a fun filled blog hop year for 2022.

To keep it simple, we will only take signups 2 months in advance,
 but we wanted you to see what we have planned, 
so you can get those creative juices flowing.

January is the "Polar Bear Plunge" blog hop.
Bears, blue or anything cold. That's what Polar Bear Plunge makes me think of.
Share your favorite chilly project, with us all!
If you haven't signed up for the hop I am hosting in January
you can do so by emailing me with "Polar Bear Plunge" in the subject line and the following
A date preference, if you have one as well.
Thanks in advance...
it really helps us out if we have all the information as shown.
(Selina, Brenda and Becky, I have you on my list already)
Again, this information is only used for the hop. 
It's never sold or shared.

We look forward to seeing you in our hops next year!

No Ring November Blog Hop

It's November already, time sure flies.
I don't know about you, but I sure appreciate this quick little project this month.
With the Christmas holiday season approaching, I need all the time I can squeeze out of my day!

I have long been fascinated with the "Folded Star" hot pads, 
which make great mug rugs.
I bought my first one at Grand Teton National Park about 35 years ago.
While it looks pretty sad these days, it keep on a going.
There is something to be said about durability after so many years.
Not that I have seen this much lately!  
My grand daughter has taken a liking to it, and hides from us.
We have found it in our underwear drawer, my nightstand, in the cabinet under the TV...
just about any place you would "not" expect to find it.
I had to grab it from her, so I could write my post!
It's a good thing she's cute!
This summer Joi, one of my quilt club friends bought us the pattern
 and interfacing templates to make them. It was a "happy dance" day for me.
 I finally got to replace my worn hot pad and it
 couldn't have been be easier, either.
These templates give you perfect stars every time.
Nothing, like trying to make a perfect star on an ball shaped ornament, 
like we were doing last year!
Here is my new Thanksgiving hot pad.
Joi surprised us all, with her special Halloween hot pads!
(You know, how I LOVE Halloween.

So now I'm on to Christmas...
It's a start, and one with some pretty wild colors.
Maybe I will tone it down a bit on the next one.
A little more traditional.
Tee Hee Hee!!

Check it out at, "Plum Easy Patterns" for yourself
And give your table a "No Ring" for any day of the year!
Thanks Carla for another fun filled blog hop.

Please visit my fellow bloggers and leave them a little love today!

In the Woods with Thermoweb and Paintbrush Studios

Have you ever heard of a "Flat Stack"?
Paintbrush Studio Fabrics, has put a new spin on a fat quarter set.
All these beautiful fabrics are printed in one long run.
The packages take up much less space, that way.
That means I have room for way more fabrics in my studio.
This  fun set of fabrics is "Forest Fables".
I love the bright colors and cheery prints.
Just look at the selvage, it's as adorable as the fabric!

The center panel is done using a fusible applique method. 
Thermoweb has made fusible applique so easy.
 HeatNBond®Light-Weight Fusible Interfacing fused on the reverse side of my background fabric supports my appliques and causes much less shrinking and distortion.
 HeatNBond EZ Print Lite  fusible web allows you to print from you computer. No more tracing!

You may have noticed many of the fabrics are directional.
Are you scared of working with directional fabrics? 
I used to be, until I stumbled on the secret.  I've included my "No-Cry" 
method of dealing with directional fabrics in the pattern.
Check it out for yourself. You can find the "free" pattern over on the Thermoweb blog

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

 Happy Halloween!

With all the partying, I almost forgot my giveaway! But never fear Random Generator was here and has chosen the winner of my giveaway during the 

Number 21 is you Ms Kathleen.
I have sent you and email for your mailing info, and it will be whisking itself your way!
I hope you all had a fun filled Halloween. Our quilt club and personal chef had such a good time celebrating the day!
We kicked it off with Bloody Mary's or Cranberry Cocktails in blood bags.
Did you know you could order them on Amazon?
It was a "hoot" that would have only been better if we would have had stands to hang them from, so we could drink right out of the bag!
There were tricks...
There were treats...
There was a table full of sweets...
But nothing beats the laughs with friends.
I hope you all had a Ghastly great day as well!
