Happy Valentine’s Day….

 

My hope for you this Valentine’s Day… is LOVE…whatever form that it may come in…

I like to celebrate LOVE all month…not just one day…with my fisherman, with my grandbabies, with my staff…my girlfriends….my sewing group, on and on.

As promised on my LIVE yesterday… I have written that recipe for the cookies…Here it is…Dipped Cherry Cookies   just click the link and you may print it or download it to your files.  I had some leftover white chocolate from Christmas so it was the perfect recipe, not too many ingredients and I just had to add/ change a few things…after you have made as many cookies as I have you just know what to do…

I had an eager helper….and this recipe does did not disappoint!  Miss Evie only gave it a 5, but I think that had more to do with that “loose” tooth!  See video…

If you did not catch our LIVE yesterday you can watch it HERE.  I had some lovely helpers and we had a fun as usual and we thank everyone who was live with us as well…Please subscribe to our YOUTUBE channel as long as you are there!

Also, this is a reminder to place your order if you would like our FREE pattern and our special sweet treat for a $25 order that is/was placed yesterday or today…sorry the treats are not the cookies shown above…. a bummer…I know.

Our FREE pattern is a re-do of AN old one of mine….here is one block stitched.  Do not let those words intimidate you…we have a video for that as well.  Lisa Bongean/Be Mine We are offering two versions….grey/red and red/pink/cream both quilts will be awesome…I can’t wait to have mine done for next V-day!

I had a beautiful day today…we were invited to Disney on Ice in a  box suite.  Thank You Brandon!   The boys all loved it! We all loved the firebreathing dragon the best!

Also I thought I would share a little of the decorating at Ancor Point!  In less than an hour I can have a whole new color scheme up and ready for all to enjoy!  I hope you get some ideas for your own quilt decorating!Lisa Bongean's HomeThere is a lot of napping that goes on here…Lisa Bongean's HomeBucky…the best dog ever.Lisa Bongean's HomeLittle antique crib quiltsLisa Bongean's Home Lisa Bongean's HomeBig antique quilts on our three arm quilt hangers.Lisa Bongean's HomeI love this quilt…simple and easy…true lover’s knot?  I’m guessing here.Lisa Bongean's Homestar quilts are alway a favorite.Lisa Bongean's HomeOur 101Itty bitty stitch along will start in April!  Be ready…book, stand…wools…all can be ordred HERE

Uneven 9 Patch Quilt Block a tutorial featured as part of the Block Heads quilting series by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

 

 Block 55 -Wine Not?-is from Moda fabric designer Jen Kingwell.  This is a fun block but I messed it up and cut my last squares the wrong size!!  Oh well, it’s a variation! 

I wish I could say I had too much wine!LIsa Bongean

Then… here is the last Block 56– from designer Joanna Figeroa. I love star blocks so of course this was a great block all those little pieces in 4″…Click Here for block 56

I am sorry these are a little late…I had to layout all my blocks to see what my layout needed.  I know some of you are very much interested in it and I promise to get this finished and produce my layout option.  Lisa Bongean MBH3 layoutI love how it’s turning out…except I am missing one block??? (top row) and had to make an extra one for the center…LB MBH3

I just “had” to fussy cut that little anchor in the middle…I hope you loved Moda Block Head 3!   Super fun!!!!! I can’t wait to reveal my finish, but hopefully this will satisfy your need to know that I am really working on it…and…someone as obsessive as myself cannot get this far and just leave it! I am a finisher! 

…if you need to order fabric for finishing I have used the following fabrics…so far…

HERE IS THE LIGHT FABRIC I USED…this is a beautiful little basic…order a bunch!

 and if you want to order the dark greys they can be PRE-ORDERED HERE…for an April delivery…. I think you need a FQ Bundle!!!! A prize for getting all your blocks done this far!!

Block 54 MBH3 Lisa Bongean

 Block 54 -Windmills-is from Moda fabric designer Janet Clare.  I love looking at the blocks and wondering why the designer gave each one its name, this one is pretty obvious.  I pieced this block a little different than the pattern and in doing so I did not get the triangles correct in my center square in a square…but oh well, it is fine for me…I did not have time to fix it so it’s staying!

2021…A New Year…a New beginning…

Happy New Year Everyone!

I know this blog post is not posting on Jan 1.  I find that you either love a new year or are not impressed with having to make new resolutions. I feel that you can make resolutions, goals, commitments, or whatever you want to call them… any time of the year can be new beginning.

In January…I do make my lists, figure out my goals and I start organizing.  This all takes a lot of time and thought.  I do not rush it. I want to feel comfortable with them and make sure they are not too big, too small, attainable, or completely out of reach.  Am I pushing myself enough?  Or am I taking the easy or simple way out?

I hope you hang out with me this year…Here on my blog, on my YouTube Channel- Stitch with Lisa Bongean, or on our Stitch with Lisa Facebook group.  We are excited about 2021.  Here is a rough list of what will be going on with me and Primitive Gatherings in 2021. Stay tuned for all the FUN!

101 Itty Bitty Stitch Along– Books are here and we will be shipping them soon!

Every day deserves to be celebrated, and with 101 Itty Bitties to choose from, it’s easy to make that happen. Use wool scraps and a bit of hand stitching to create 2″ squares with motifs and sayings for holidays, seasons, sports, gardening, pets, and more. The designs are quick to complete and make perfect take-along projects. Tuck the tiny treasures into vignettes, turn them into wearable art, add a magnet and display them on your refrigerator, tie them to a gift, or send one to a friend to brighten their day–the possibilities are endless. Make an Itty Bitty (or 101!) and make every day a celebration!

101 Itty Bitty Celebrations

American Quilter’s Stitch Along– Starts Feb 1st- Fingers crossed the fabric come in, in January.  You will need a FAT QUARTER bundle of American Gatherings fabric.  Patterns will be free downloads.  We will be raising money for veterans with each bundle sold and auctions and donationsLisa Bongean's Stitch Along

We will continue to offer Video Tutorials on techniques and projects.– Let us know if you have any suggestions that are not on our list.  We are learning and buying better equipment for 2021.  Please share our videos and comment, “Like” and subscribe to our channel.  We are starting to make a little money on these videos, however, it takes lots of watched hours to make it add up.  The more who watch it, the more we can do… and it will help pay for what it takes for us to keep creating these videos!  STITCH WITH LISA BONGEAN is our YouTube Channel

Here is our latest video on Prepping, Stitching and Connecting wool pennies for wool applique.

Wool Box subscription– I am working on designing and completing our projects way ahead of our ship dates.  A lot of planning has to go into these with our subscription at 1300.  If I  use an FQ of flannel or wool…that is 325 total yards…just so you can understand what this means.  This subscription is closed.  We just added more spots and are filled up at this time.  Watch our group for info on when you will be able to join if we have some openings.
