When I found out that I was going to be a grandma, I immediately began a search for baby patterns.  All these years with no tiny people to make things for, and suddenly I have a reason to create!  The first thing on my list was a baby blanket.  With that in mind, I perused one of my favorite sites, Ravelry, for a unique and sweet baby blanket crochet pattern.

Ravelry is a great source for both free and paid crochet and knitting patterns.  Membership on the site if free of charge and I love the forums and groups of like minded people who love to knit and crochet like I do.  It was there that I found the pattern that I loved.

Here is your latest Block of the Month free pattern!  I am a huge fan of Redwork Embroidery.  Because the design is outlined with very little filled areas, redwork is quick and easy to complete. And it is the centerpiece for my new Free Quilt Pattern series- Words to Live By.

I have already featured the patterns, LOVE, FAMILY, PATIENCE, and LAUGHTER.  You can get full access to those patterns on the Members Only Page.

Today, I am featuring pattern number 5: Courage!

This pattern series will be offered for free to all Subscribers to Suzy's Sitcom for the next 12 months!  A new block will come out around the 15th of each month featuring a new "word to live by".  The final block instructions will also include details for layout, and finishing instructions for several different size quilts.

All subscribers will receive the new pattern each month in your email!

Summer is a great time for small quilting projects.  I love making small lap quilts and baby quilts.  Not only are they great handmade gifts, but they give you the opportunity to practice new techniques on a much smaller scale than a larger quilt.  Here are 10 fun quilt patterns for baby.  Most of them are free and all of them are very sweet!

My favorite source for free quilt patterns is FaveQuilts.com.  FaveQuilts is dedicated to the best free quilt patterns, tutorials, tips and articles on quilting. From easy quilt patterns to complex quilt patterns, they offer the best free quilt patterns from all over the web.

We recently made the drive across country to stay for a few months with my daughter in Atlanta.  The reason?  The birth of our first grandchild!  I got busy making a few fun projects for her including a cute baby blanket that I will feature soon, along with an easy to make Butterfly Baby Mobile.

Have you ever priced mobiles?  My daughter and I did, and left with sticker shock.  While they were certainly cute, we were looking at $50 to $100 for the type of mobile that we both liked.  Since the baby will only be enjoying the mobile for a short time (before it needs to be removed from the crib for safety reasons), we didn't want to spend a ton of money.

May is right around the corner and the trees have just started to bud.  So I decided to bring a little spring color into my RV. I created a colorful yo-yo pillow out of fabric scraps and a throw pillow!

This is a great project to do in front of the television at night.  You do not need a sewing machine and the stitching is a basic running stitch.   I've included the full tutorial for you below!
