Today was a sad day. Today someone whought thier problem could be solved by attacking innocent children. Today's previously planned freebie Friday will be posted tomorrow as we all take time to hold our loved ones a little closer. Today has reminded us not to think about what we want, but rather cherrish what we have.

Today's surprise from Bear Thread Designs' friends, Pat Sloan. Santa says Pat Sloan's pattern, Santa's Toy Box is a top requested item this year. I spent some time with Pat at the International Quilt Market in October and had a lot of fun. She even shared her M&Ms with me!
Lots of people asked us about her quilt, which was hanging in the Bigfork Bay Cotton Company booth. You may remember we help staff the booth after some last minute changes.
The pattern contains easy to follow instructions, full size layout guide and pattern pieces that are already reversed for applique. It is regularly $14, but through Dece. 20 at midnight is on sale for 20% off! To order the pattern, send an email to BearTD@hotmail.com ...

Hello! Sorry, I am posting this so late. I don't know if you guys know this, but it is very hard for me to type with these paws, so Michelle does most of it for me. I had to wait for her to finish running Christmas errands ... and let me tell you, that girl can shop!
Today's top present from Sant's bag is one of Michelle's favorites. Oh Holy Night is an impressionist stained glass fusible web pattern by Brenda Henning of Bear Paw Productions.
|O Holy Night|
The pattern is regularly $25, but is on sale for $20 through Bear Thread Design until Dec. 17 at midnight. To order the pattern, send an email to Veronica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do ...

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer. Each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
