Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

What am I Doing?

Quilt as You Piece Block

I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.


The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.

Oh My Goodness! I just ordered an Accuquilt Go Big Electric Die cutter! There will be an unboxing video when I get it. I have big quilting plans in the future. If you are interested in knowing about the Accuquilt die cutting system, you can check it out at this link: Accuquilt Web Site. This is a referral link. If you buy anything at their web site, with this link, you will get 20% off of your purchase and I get a discount as well!

My Accuquilt Go Big arrived on Tuesday January 18th. I uploaded a video of the Unboxing of it. I will also unbox the dies I bought to go with it which will get me started. I also got a Go Me machine free with my order for the Promotion they were having at the time I purchased my Go Big. The next block in the Mystery Quilt as You Piece will have pieces in it that will be cut with the die that came with my machine.

This Week's Tip

Easy Crochet Necklaces

You can use any decorative crochet braid or rope to make a necklace. Just make the rope, attach a clasp on each end then hang a charm or pendant from the center of it. You may even sew on a few small beads on the rope for an added touch. Or if the holes in the beads are big enough, you could put a few beads on the rope with the larges one in the center. But in order for the crochet rope to show, you may want to put only about 4 large beads on with the charm hanging in the center of them. This would be a good use for gold or silver thread. You could even sell these at craft bazaars.
