First of all– can you believe it’s really 2020? And can you believe that we are 3/4 of the way through the first month of 2020?? Doesn’t it sound like science fiction? But here we are. And we don’t even have space cars yet. The Jetsons would be super disappointed…

Anyway, you know what never goes out of style?? Sewing. (Great segue, right???) I took off the second half of December to spend time with family, but over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to catch up… I don’t like starting the new year feeling like I’m already behind! I’ve been writing patterns and…. writing more patterns!!

First, I’ve worked on writing the pattern for our 2020 Free Block of the Month! I designed the quilt and ordered fabric back in the fall, but I’m just now getting around to writing the patterns. We are once again doing 2 different colorways, I’m calling them Spring and Summer, and I really can’t choose a favorite. We’ll be starting this BOM around late Spring (it takes a lot of work behind the scenes to get ready for our annual BOM!) I’m not quite done writing yet. Fingers crossed, I’ll finish this up by the end of the month, because….

Fabric has started arriving!!! So, clearly, there’s no turning back, LOL.

(By the way, our 2019 Free BOM is wrapping up!! If you haven’t gotten your patterns yet, click here!)

I’ve also been working on a lot of stuff for The Art of Home Club. We just released this pattern a couple of days ago:

And last night, I finished the embroidery for this Club project for February. We are doing the sample in Orange/Pink/Yellow, but I also played with a Blue/Green colorway. I’m really happy with the embroidery designs.

I’m also working on our annual Club “Mystery” project… It’s a mystery, because our members work on it a month at a time, but don’t know how it will all come together until the end. This year’s project is called “Cold Hands, Warm Heart,” so you can probably guess the theme??

(The projects above are Club exclusives, meaning you won’t find them anywhere else on my website or in shops- you have to be a member of The Art of Home Club to get them. Want to know more? Click here- we will be having new member enrollment in February! Get on our waiting list, and get awesome bonuses when you join the Club!)

Those of you who have followed me for a while may have noticed that I don’t blog nearly as much as I used to… So much to do, so little time! But, I do send out a newsletter just about every week, so I recommend signing up here so you don’t miss anything.
