My granddaughter was born in April and we were able to spend two full months with my daughter and her family.  Living in our RV makes things like that a bit easier!  The hard part is leaving.  This week, I put together a beautiful LOVE sign with plaster casts that I had made from molds of my granddaughter's feet.

Plaster Casting is easier than it looks and I would love to show you how to create your own beautiful memories with this simple project!

These are the little feet that I started this project with.  Made with a plaster casting kit, they show every little fold and wrinkle in her tiny little feet.  She will never be that tiny again.  What a wonderful way to keep a bit of the memory!

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 and WISDOM.  You can get full access to those patterns on the Members Only Page.

Today, I am featuring pattern number 7: THANKFUL!

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!

This beautiful butterfly in a jar not only is a great way to recycle, but makes a fabulous conversation piece. It involves the easy craft of Paper quilling with colored card stock and a recycled jar, and costs just pennies to make!

So I have this thing about throwing perfectly good things away.  Like pickle jars.  I love those huge kosher dill pickles.  I snack on them all the time.  And they come in nice sized glass jars.  Of course, I certainly cannot throw them away, so I've accumulated at least 20 of them in the back of my kitchen cupboard.

This week, I decided to put one of them to good use.  I created a quilled butterfly in a jar.  The perfect pet.  No back-talking, no poopy on the kitchen floor, no begging at the table.
