Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

What am I Doing?

Quilt as You Piece Block

I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.

The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.

The dress on this bear can be made with any color you choose to go great in any season. But what a cute look it is for the Holidays! The last 4 rounds of the skirt are worked in such a manner as to make them look woven but they are not. It is just the way the stitches are done.

This Week's Tip

The Cranberry Sauce Slides Right Out

I do this myself whenever I open a can of cranberry sauce. Open the can as you normally would then turn it upside down and break the seal on the other end either with the sharpe end of a bottle opener or your can opener. (This releases the pressure in the can.) Then shake it just a little and the cranberry should just slide out. It works best when the can is at room tempurature. You can then put it in a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge until it is time to serve it. It is great time saver.
