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, COURAGE, LAUGHTER, WISDOM, THANKFUL and PURPOSE.  You can get full access to those patterns on the Members Only Page.

Today, I am featuring pattern number 9: CELEBRATE!

This pattern series will be offered for free to all Subscribers to Suzy's Sitcom until the end of 2017!  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!

I was wandering around a crafting convention in Phoenix a few months ago and ran across some great folks representing the PeppyCrafts company out of Russia.  They offer many unique and colorful embroidery, sewing and applique kits that you simply cannot get just anywhere.  I do love kits and the fact that you can just sit down and have everything in front of you to work with!

So, this week I would love to show you one of the No-Sew Applique kits that they so kindly shared with me to try.  This is a great craft for preteens and those that just love to create something colorful and beautifully made with this amazingly simple technique!

If you are in Europe, you can find these kits here: PeppyCrafts.  If you live elsewhere, be sure to check the kit links at the bottom of this post for similar kits.  These make great gifts for those that love to craft!

Recently I was contacted by a reader who had admired my Peacock Themed Wedding Card Box. She is getting married soon, and wanted to know if she could special order one for her wedding.  I couldn't turn her down.  You see, I have crafting ADHD.  I can't help myself.  Ha!

Her wedding is going to be a large one; nearly two hundred people!  So I needed to create a larger box to accommodate and base it on her color choices of black, turquoise and teal.  She loved the peacocks and wanted me to incorporate them into the project too.

This project is an inexpensive way to make something beautiful for a wedding- using recycled boxes and wrapping paper.  And the theme can be anything you want! Want to know how to make it?

Ever have that little issue when nobody knows if the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty?  Since I'm the only one that actually uses the dishwasher, generally I'm the only one that knows the answer to that question.  So I created a simple way for the family to tell if dishes are clean or […] Read the full article →
