Zodiac BOM: Gemini Block

Not sure what happened with the last few months... oh wait, yes I do. I wrote about it in my last post. :/ (ps. THANK YOU for ALL of your LOVE! Comments, and support!! You are the BEST!! seriously. You lifted my spirits and opened my eyes to the world of food intolerance. I had NO idea it was such a common issue. Hugs to all of you! Though that is a different blog post for another day. But I couldn't NOT say thank you! So Thank you! again.) Anyway, as I was saying... I totally missed sharing the Aries block AND the Taurus blocks for the Zodiac BOM. I guess I'll save those for another day as well. ;)


But for TODAY I do want to share my  

Gemini block

 I LOVE these Sandi Henderson prints and colors together! For some reason this color of pink makes me think of strawberry ice cream... and I want to lick it!!


ok, now wipe off your screen so you can read the rest of this post. ;)


Would you like to look at more pictures??? of course you do.

Don't Tell Me that You're Hungry.

I have suddenly come down with a lot of different food allergies, and saying it has been a rough ride is an understatement. I love eating fresh healthy foods, so it's been a blessing as I'm *forced*  to eat them. As a teen, I was a vegetarian for over 4 years, so changing my diet and having diet restrictions isn't really an issue. Except for the fact that I currently can't eat ANYTHING. No dairy, no gluten, not even my oatmeal, no butter, no eggs, no cinnamon, no vinegar, and who knows what else... I'm still trying to figure it all out.

Birthday Week! Coupon and Surprise Sale!!

It's my birthday this week, and now that the week is half over.... oops, let's get this party started! ;)

If you signed up to receive my newsletter, you should have already received this info! But I want to be sure that no one misses out!

We just spent two weeks being sick, and now it's spring break, and I decided that a nice relaxing birthday week is in order this year. So I'm starting the week off with a coupon!

I'm turning 34 this year, and it feels pretty good! I don't feel young anymore, but I don't feel old either. I feel a greater sense of maturity as I emerge from some of life's trials, and although I feel a little bruised and banged up, it feels to have my feet underneath me and my head on my shoulders, and to feel in control of my future.

My Shop is MOVING!

Due to some recent frustrations with my Bigcartel shop, as well as some added benefits with Shopify, I have decided to move my shop!!! It is a big, and I mean HUGE, undertaking, but it will be well worth it! And I'm REALLY excited!!

My NEW shop site is: fromblankpagespatterns.com

There are a lot of features I want to implement and use on Shopify, which will take some time to get it all up and running. I'm hoping to get it finished by the summer, crossing my fingers. I have put a lot of time in to moving all of my patterns over, and they are all now available in my new shop. But I'm still working on getting my own domain, so I hesitate to plaster it all over the interwebs before it's official.
BUT I do want to close down my Bigcartel shop as soon as I can, so I'm going to go ahead an announce this so you can download your patterns before I close up shop!!   
Shop is NOW CLOSED.

Updated to add: If you purchased patterns through Craftsy or Etsy, this does not affect you! You don't need to worry about downloading your patterns. They will always be available to you.

I'm excited to share with you my Pisces block that will go in my sampler quilt.

Zodiac BOM: Aquarius Block

It has been a lot of fun to see people's progress for the Zodiac BOM show up on Instagram and Flickr! I'm loving the coloring pages and the Aquarius blocks that I've seen so far!!

I wanted to quickly share my Aquarius blocks with you! I made my block for my final sampler quilt, and decided to also make a mini quilt with 4 blocks. I love playing around with this pattern!!!

Here is my 18 inch block for my sampler quilt:
