To our BRAND NEW BLOG DESIGN, meet those who made it happen! ( ON MONDAY)


Ahhhh  how I love the fall...for some it is the end of warmth---
for me it is the beginning of cuddle unders, 
rested days before the warmth of a fire-
 hot coffee cups filled with my favorite brew.( this morning
it will be  Green mountain Breakfast Blend)
...My kindle, my IPAD2, my sketch pad......
and YOU!. 


Campaign
had a look that lasted 3 months....
I never tired of ORANGE 
but I did tire....lol

This BLOG design will always be filled with
mixed emotions and certainly one many of us will never
forget...But did you know who made our look 
very unique-who welcomed you for 89 days?

Sew from left to right... Ladies take your final Bow....

Andy, Brenis (top), Amy, Insung Kim (top)
Cara and Kyoko....
Thank you for making
OUR blog design sew refreshing....!

Return on Monday for 
the stories behind our new look!
Their stories will certainly warm your hearts
as it did mine...

The month of NOVEMBER will be filled
with BLOCKS, all kinds of BLOCKS...
after all we are TUT blog...


I invited some very interesting, artistic,
fun, entertaining GUEST block (ers) 
Trust me there is nothing 
SQUARE about any of them!

Be here or be Square...
( how lame is that...I am going to blame
it on I am sewwwwwwwwww tired...) lol

I am reminded of my old Mentor, 
Boss, Friend,  President of a company I used
to work for years ago...

"YOU are only as good as your next success"

So to another successful chapter! Do  you  want to turn the page
with me -YOU can hold my hand , we will walk in together!

and P.S. 
thank you for your lovely notes...
truly heart felt...
I will connect in the near future..
for now....well I NEED SOME SLEEP
zzzzzzzzzzz
 I am off COFFEE...

  12. Love the new blog header. And this is just a little suggestion from my crazy editor eyes that you absolutely don't feel pressure about, BUT...It would be so much easier to read your posts if you justified your text from the Left side. The overall look of center-justified text is totally fun and fits your personality, but it's so hard to read. Taking it to the left will give a cleaner look to your site, and I swear your readers will thank you for it. I Love Your Blog and I think you're amazing, so please don't feel as if this is a criticism. :)

  13. I disagree with ecuakim, just so you know. She might be an editor and know what is "easier" but am a reader and I know what is not like everyone else. I like your text in the middle.

    The leaves on the side remind me of an old movie we used to watch as kids called "the Last Leaf." It was very sad.

    I would love to take the next jump with you, though I can't promise I will make each block. I would love to, but I have other things to do. Right now I am putting off working on Halloween. I just decided today how to do my costume and low and behold tonight when I decide how to do the neck line, I learn I don't have 1/4 inch elastic. The Church's Trunk or Treat is tomorrow! I feel ready to implode. Wait, I was saying something. Oh yeah, I will jump with you. You don't have to hold my hand but I wouldn't mind it if you do. We can always use a little more hand holding. Why don't friends hold hands? It's always a romantic thing: bah! Bah I say! I want to hold hands!

  14. I think you must be a little like the Energizer bunny, you never rest! November will be awesome!

  15. Beautiful header.....how do you get everything done???? You're awesome!

  16. I found the orange extremely refreshing and I am sure I will love what you have in store next for all of us Blogettes. That down computer must surely be a sign that you should put your feet up and take a short breather.

  39. It looks wonderful. I love the look of fall too.

    I once worked at a hospital that the designers used orange - shades of orange circles, no less. It was a disaster for sick patients. Your orange never bothered me. lol

    Hope you can take a rest now.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love the new look. I will never see orange again without thinking of you! hehe. Again, Thank you so much for all the hard work you've done over the last three months. I was able to introduce my daughter to the hobby I love and get her excited only the way seeing amazing people can. Will be back to see what else you have instore for us. Get some rest and Take Care of Yourself!! We need You !! Have a Great Weekend!!

  41. LOVE the new banner and look! Autumn is my very favorite time of year, too, and I just heard some Canada Geese honking by as I was reading the previous comments, haha! Love it! Whoa! Love your new sponsor too! Folks are going to go NUTS! (I ♥ my sewing machine spool rack) Looking forward to the next "Adventures with Madame Samm!" Here's to another successful chapter! Have a wonderful, restful weekend!

  42. "You deserve a rest today - you deserve the best today - with ?" - eeek I can't remember the end of the jingle! This has been one glorious 3-month "ride"! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And I do love the new look!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks so much for the last 3 months, I learned a lot and found a whole bunch of wonderful bloggers to follow. This has been a lot of fun and I just can't say Thank You enough for all of the hard work you put in to make it work.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks, Samm, for a job well done...I still haven't decided if you're crazy or brilliant...oh wait, maybe you're just crazy-brilliant! Yes, that's it! You really pulled off a great campaign and inspired new and old quilters along the way - so truly, from the bottom of my tiny black heart, thank you! xo, Nan

  45. Your new banner is lovely. I've never been an orange lover, but have fallen in love with it since I became your follower. Especially the quilt with the heading "I get asked this more than 20 X daily". It's lovely, and I can understand why you get asked it more than 20 X daily.

    But again, your new banner is lovely, and so calming.

    I've enjoyed the ride with you the past few months, and look forward to what your crazy mind has in store for us next!

  46. Looks fab! I loved the orange, but I might be a little bias about this one! hehe! Enjoy your weekend R&R, see you next week for more fun!

    ReplyDelete
  47. You deserve a rest, I can only say I am amazed with your blog and all the doings! But what amazes me the most, I (Yes, Me!), am actually learning. This ole' dog is not done yet! Thanks for the inspiration!

  48. What is your definition of rest? We all know what you have been doing for the last 3 months, Wannabies and Ghastlies and I assume a life. Here you are presenting November and you have already made plans for a great December. I'm really not seeing the rest part. Not complaining mind you. Love every minute. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well my dear, for me rest is a coffee and a quilt, maybe a good book. Not you-I think it stands for
    R-recharge
    E-energize
    S-stay
    T-tuned
    Just trying to keep up with you is an adventure. Love ya girl! Hugs

  52. I love the new look I just don't understand how you do everything !!
    I'll certainly be around for the next chapter Personally I don't need all the give-aways... the blog and guests and especially your input are what keep me coming back.

  55. No coffee??? ooooh Sit down, put your feet up and breathe deeply. If you can't be smelling the coffee then I guess you'll have to settle for wood smoke, crisp air and cinnamon in hot apple cider. Have a great weekend!
