Gone Fishin’ Sue


A tad later in the day than usual, but there she is!!!  Even an embroidered line!!!    I HATE embroidery!  LOL   But hey—sometimes a project just needs it.   IMG_7798

The only tiny button I had on hand was a  heart.   Feel free to use a google eye, or even scraps of flannel or felt. IMG_7799

Being from Louisiana, there is a LOT of fishing going on over here.   And SHRIMPING.  So I gave my girl shrimp boots!   IMG_7792

Unfortunately, I ended up covering them up with the canoe, BUT you could easily forgo the canoe and just have her fishin’ in the bayou!

Feel free to share and down load until July 1st!  Download the PDF file here———->  Gone Fishin

May Showers—FREE Block of the Month SunBonnet Sue

Welcome back, ya’ll!!    The end of the school year is RIGHT around the corner here in SWLA.  We have had a lot of activity with last minute field trips, awards ceremonies, and (gasp) a graduation.  Yes, my 3rd baby is headed to kindergarten next year.  sighIMG_7280-001

SO I’m sorry this post is a tad late.   Dot is just as busy, but she still managed to squeak out the sample block for us.  THANK YOU DOT!   And as always, the cutest darn applique embellishments!  The flower stems are intended to be embroidered.   The 2nd applique is a basket with a butterfly, requiring NO embroidery.  Take your pick!!!may photo2

Anyway, on to the pattern!   As usual, it is guaranteed to be free only until the end of the month, even though I often forget to remove the pattern link!   All other patterns are available in the Etsy store.   Download the pattern here——>May Showers

If you sew up one of these darlings, please share on the Flicker page.

Off to work on that stack of 9-patches.   ALMOST done!!

peace and pieces,

Lucky Sew—-Free PDF Block Of The Month pattern

IMG_4758Meet the NEXT Sue in our Sue Through The Seasons.  Lucky Sue!  Check out the BLING in that Pot O Gold!   Gold lame’ ribbon worked great!IMG_4759

Color coordinated threads for applique, as well!IMG_4760

And Bling on her hat buckle, too!IMG_4762

I struggled with my fabric choices.   Nothing seemed to work.  So I found a sheer green sparkly ribbon and laid it over some plain linen.   Worked pretty well!!    Until I went to iron it.   IMG_4763

It melted.   OOPS!!   But I can fix that—just wait….IMG_4764

I ended up turning this sue into a table runner.   The shamrocks on the sides are the optional applique choice.  IMG_4770

Remember the iron burn??    This new shamrock covers it RIGHT up!!   IMG_4771

Just getting funky with my camera now!   lol   I LOVE this thing!IMG_4772

The only shamrock that I got appliqued properly.   I need a new needle BAD.  So I opted to just show you the unfinished sample, and do another post later.IMG_4773

The pattern can be found right here in the Etsy Shop   Lucky Sue 12 inch block  Remember, it’s ONLY free until the end of March!   So share, pin, blog, etc!!!  If you missed the other 2 blocks, don’t stress.   They are in the Etsy shop!

OH!   And today is the LAST day to join the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop!!  Head on over to the giveaway post!

Linking up with Richard and Tanya’s Link a Finish Friday.

Sue Sweet!! Block 2 of Sue Through the Seasons

Good MORNING everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.  I tend to celebrate all week.  Mostly food stuff, but the kids like it.  I have a few more of those to post.  But until then……..  Meet Sue Sweet!sunbonnet sue february dot

Isn’t she cute?   Notice the love letter in her hand!  This applique is a heart topiary, and the second applique pattern features a mailbox.  Once again, Dorothy Gautier did the sample.  I LOVE hourglasses.  And her choice of colors are always spot-on.  You can find the file here———> (Sue is no longer free….please find her at the ETSY store.)

Like last month, we ask that you simply leave a comment if you downloaded our pattern.  This link will be taken down on March 1st.  Since February is a short month, you better hurry!  Share, pin, and let your friends know!  New Sue is available in my Etsy store.

I have 3 big projects going on at the same time, and I hope to have pictures and finished products REAL soon!!  So stay tuned!

peace and pieces,
