Happy Saturday! One of my goals for 2017 was to use a planner for the first time ever – I purchased The Quilter’s Planner and I’m attempting to lay out my work goals/projects in it, as well as using Google Calendar to have a digital documentation as well. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep up with the handwritten calendar, but we’ll see. One of the main things I’m writing in my calendar is blog posts – way back when, all of this started with my blog, but in the last year or so, I feel like the blog has fallen to last priority, especially when I get busy. There’s so many things that I made last year that I never got around to blogging about, and it’s a shame really.
Just in time for some quick holiday gift sewing is the Kismet Trinket Boxes sewing pattern, now available in PDF, Paper Pattern, and German PDF Pattern format! This new pattern is part of my ‘Value Series’ of $5 patterns! With less than 20 sewing steps, this pattern is quick and fun to sew!
Happy Black Friday weekend! It’s my birthday on Monday (the 28th), and to celebrate, NOW THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT I’m offering 40% off all patterns in the Sew Sweetness Pattern Shop using coupon code happybirthday. Additionally, all orders over $100 will receive a FREE 18″ x 54″ glitter vinyl – no coupon needed for the glitter vinyl, just let me know your color choice at checkout! The offer is good now through end of day Sunday, November 27th.
This year, I have become a big fan of subscription boxes. No matter what your interests are, the right subscription box is out there for you. I first signed up for several subscriptions out of sheer curiosity, but I have continued to pay to be a subscriber because I value the quality of my boxes and they make my life easier and more fun.
I just wanted to pop and let you know that last week, I re-vamped the very first pattern I ever released in my pattern shop, the Dot Dot Dash Bag. This one holds a special place in my heart because it was the first one! For the pattern revamp, I added an additional small size to the pattern, and I re-shot all of the step photos.

Today, I’d like to present my block contribution to the Splendid Sampler quilt along! My block 77 is called ‘Prism’. The pattern is available here on the Splendid Sampler website. I used various Moda fabrics to create my block, and ultimately decided on a design that was very geometric and easy to piece.
Now in stock in the Sew Sweetness shop are 22 vibrant colors of glitter vinyl fabric! The glitter vinyl is backed with canvas fabric, and it’s very thin (0.6mm) and easy to sew on your home sewing machine. If you’ve not sewn with leather or vinyl before, I suggest using a denim needle and either a walking foot or a Teflon foot (I use a Teflon foot personally). Whenever sewing with vinyl, I always like to test on a scrap first, just so I can get warmed up.

It’s been a looong while since I’ve made a quilt, but I really missed it and I have to admit it felt soo good making one over the weekend! This is ‘Peacock Alley’, a quilt pattern from John Kubiniec‘s new book, A New Spin on Drunkard’s Path, available from the C&T Publishing website and of course available on Amazon. I was provided an ebook advance copy of the book. The book contains the patterns for 12 quilts, all using the great drunkard’s path block. I’ve always been fascinated with this block because of the curved piecing. I’m also a big fan of the medallion quilt (check out the Marcelle Medallion quilt that I made 3 years ago).
