We have a Winner...three actually this week. Congratulations Susan, Jan P., and Inge H. I will be contacting you via email with your free pattern.
It has been one of those weeks where the best laid plans did not really work out.
I have come to rely on my personal technology and when it goes bad it does not mess around.
Thankfully I have a beloved hubby who has loaned me his laptop so I am back in the game,
To keep myself from succumbing to all the tech frustrations I stepped outside and visited some of my favorite places...all to soothe the soul.
I have another Giveaway for you to enter this week. I am very excited about this one. Be sure and read through to the end
Now on to our applique for this week. We will be working with those little sheep hiding in the hills. This is really where I think the Apliquick tools shine.

Pour yourself a glass of milk and let me introduce you to this month's Block.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. Now granted these were not my favorite, as they were lacking chocolate. But how wonderful they made the house smell when mom baked up a batch, and if she allowed us to eat one while still warm.... well that was a pretty special treat.
This block may look complicated, but is made with very simple piecing techniques.
Get ready to make some Half-square-Triangles. They go together into so many combinations which makes them really fun to play with.
You can get your copy of the pdf pattern free for a limited time by clicking the link below.
Block 10: Oatmeal Raising Cookie
My pattern testers did a great job with their blocks this month too and I love seeing each one's take on color choices.
You may already have a favorite tried and true Oatmeal Cookie Recipe. I found one that I have printed off to try from Sommer Collier of A Spicy Perspective. I am looking forward to filling my home with this sweet smell. Oh, and browsing her site leads to lots of other sweet recipes too.
I hope you enjoy some time in your own quilting space. This one rather reminds me of my grandmother and her special place in a house where she raised 8 children during the depression. As a child I spent lots of time working the treadle on her sewing machine and who knew where those early days would lead me.
Are you ready to start sewing along with me? I have created 3 videos that show my process for each step. This week we are adding pieces 1-10 of the center applique.
We will be taking this in small steps to give you time to work along with me.
This is to keep the process from becoming overwhelming.
And be sure and read through the entire post as I have a giveaway
at the end you can sign up for.
