Black Friday Sale at The Patchsmith's ETSY Store

Here's a first - a Patchsmith sale.  I thought it might be fun to join in the Black Friday and Thanksgiving celebrations by taking 20% off the price of my PDF mug rug pattern books available via ETSY.  

You could go all out for Christmas with my two Christmas mug rug pattern books:
Santa, reindeer and three wise kings!

Penguins, baubles and trees

Or you could indulge your hobby:
Sewing, knitting, photography or baking.They are all here.

Perhaps you want to make a fun and functional gift for an animal lover:

Saving money?  Then how about turning some of those unused 6" blocks you have into a 'thank you' gift for a hostess or teacher:
Hearts, birds and bees transform any 6" block.

Oooh how spooky - I nearly forgot the book that is perfect for Thanksgiving:
Turkeys and pilgrims, pumpkins and ghosts.

Or maybe, just maybe you want to grab yourself a reason to escape into your sewing room at this busy time of the year.  Head on over to my ETSY store for the Patchsmith's first ever Black Friday sale - but be quick - sale ends Sunday 30th November 2019.

Granny's Garden Blocks 37 and 39

Granny's Garden Block 37
We are on the home straight for the Granny's Garden Bedrunner.  This week saw the completion of Blocks 37 and 39 - the former being very simple applique and the latter being a bit more work but made easier by reducing the layer.

Let us look at Block 37 first.  This flower block is very similar to Block 5 except it has two more leaves.  Nothing difficult here.
Remember Block 5 - way back in week 2?

Block 39 is not overly difficult either but it is a bit more work.  If you repeat the method used for Block 9 -you can reduce the layers.
Granny's Garden Block 39

It is also a bit of a tight squeeze fitting in the flowers and leaves into the inner circle.  But you can always trim them just a little if it helps.

Next week I will be making the last of the fourteen blocks needed for my bedrunner - Block 41.  So until then ......
