New BOM--Card Trick Block

Pin It
I had a contest to see who could sew up the "Card Trick," first, and we had a winner! It was a 22 year old male who won the contest (he made it within hours of posting the pattern)! He won a set of my Stitchin' up the Pieces buttons as well as the e-pattern on my website! We actually had two people who made the block the first day, so the second winner also received a set of the buttons! (I was so thrilled to have such enthusiasm!)

Below is a picture of the "Card Trick" Block! Easy and fun! No money is won while piecing it, though! haha (unless you have some fancy card playing tricks and use them in Vegas! haha) You can find the Card Trick Block here.


If you want to get started now, I added block 1 and 2 to my blog. Find block #1 block #2 in the side bar! The blocks start out easy and get a little more challenging as we go! 

You'll learn how to use Triangles on a Roll for block #2 and you'll LOVE it! So (sew) easy!
I look forward to you joining the yahoo group!

Inspired at Home Radio Clip~Learn how to Get Published

Pin It

The radio interview went very well! Tiffany Windsor made me feel so comfortable and relaxed! The whole group was so nice! Tiffany, her sisters, Heidi and Candice and her mother, Aleene Jackson. She was a hoot! Check out Tiffany Windsor's website and view the history of their crafty family! (Just click on the links on the page to view the history.) It is very interesting how Aleene made it in television when it was just getting started....talk about Art Linkletter, etc.!

If you want to listen to the radio interview, go to Inspired at Home. or if you want to listen to only the clip of my interview, go to Denise Clason clip.

This is a really fun radio show! Learn all about how to create things for your home, etc. I have a few friends who will be interviewed on the show. Listen for Brenda Pinnick and Ketra Oberlander on July 19th! You'll really enjoy these women!


Brenda has a new line of fabric licensed by Henry Glass & Co. Check it out! I'll be making a bag out of it soon! Keep your eyes open!


Aren't they beautiful!!!
have a great day! Denise
