Welcome to the 7th year of our Exclusive Free Mystery Block of the Month by Pat Sloan! This year Pat's theme is Out West. Pat’s love of western things is going to be our fun mystery sew along. So tighten the cinches, stomp into your boots, and buckle on your guns, because we are going to have a fun time in 2020!
The Supply list is linked below, but it and the blocks during the year will can always be found at our landing page for the BOM. The six prior years are also still available at the ‘Mystery BOM’ tab above.
Pat Sloan on the 2020 Mystery BOM
I am SO excited about this theme! What can be better than cowboy hats, horses, wild west stories (old and new), and maybe a chuck wagon stew to explore the west for a year!
We have traveled across the country and some of my favorite stops had me learning so much about Western life. Not only what went on years ago, but also more current Western life.
To get in shape for this journey I’ve been doing a lot of research and it’s going to be hard to narrow it down to only 10 exciting things about the West to feature. I’ve even found a lingo guide: who knew that 'Pecos Strawberries' are beans? Now I’m on the hunt to read a few books by current-day Western authors. If you have a recommendation, leave it below.
I’ve pulled out my turquoise cowboy boots, and as Mae West said, “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Are you ready to join me? Leave me a comment telling me your favorite Western thing. A story, movie, song, a place you’ve visited!
