now until this Sunday, July 31, 2011 at midnight!
Last Call for……
Also – we have uploaded the last 6 kits we have available for this great quilt:
Gentleman Caller from Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle Journey #1 The kits are $50.00 each and include all the fabric for the top and binding! (pattern not included!)
We also have a few copies left of Jo Morton’s new book:
Last weekend we also uploaded several more Fat Eighth and Fat Quarter bundles that remain from our quilt shows this year!
Go and check out the new bundles we added at the following links:
My motto today:
“When life gives you scraps – go make a quilt!”
****** no coupon code needed – if it’s marked as on sale on our website – then it’s on sale – if it’s not marked – then it’s not on sale.
*****fabric “on the bolt” only and there is a 1/2 yard minimum cut on all yardage. If you order less than a 1/2 yard we will not fill that portion of your order and will email you to let you know. If there is less than a 1/2 yard left “in-stock” – go ahead and order what is remaining.
***** all coupon codes have been “turned off” during this sale and will not be affective or usable until after the sale. If you happen to order other items that are not on sale along with “on-sale fabric” – leave the coupon code in the “comments” section in the shopping cart and we will adjust the total of your invoice prior to charging your credit card.
***** the sale begins now at this moment and is null and void on any previous orders or pre-orders from this point forward.
***** DO NOT place pre-order fabrics on the same order with items in stock. During this sale we will not “hold” items until everything is in stock – if you “pre-order” items along with a sale item – expect an email from us – you will have to pay separate shipping!
****** this sale excludes all clubs, fabric bundles, previously listed sale fabrics (you know, the fabrics that are showing under the “Sale Fabric” category on our website currently, notions, patterns, books etc. Basically – if it’s not showing a sale price – then it’s not on sale.
And speaking of clubs:
This club is selling out very quickly. We already have 1/2 of the memberships filled! You have many options for this club – so sign up today.
I saw the actual quilt and fabrics while at Quilt Market last week – you will not regret signing up for this club!
(Here’s a little hint – if you want a really good deal on this quilt club – it’s cheaper to order the whole kit at once and be done with it!)

****Just a little update – Crossroads to Texas fabric is still “on the boat” and en route to America. Blue Hill predicts we should see this fabric the beginning of June.
***** I have been getting a tremendous amount of emails regarding pre-ordering the following fabric lines that are all due to arrive in July. (let’s just say for future reference – if the little pre-order button is not showing on our website – then it’s not available for pre-order yet.)
Sara’s Stash (this one I am waiting until Blue Hill can assure me that their will be no hold ups on this fabric line – so do not expect this one to be listed right away!)
Judie’s Nineteenth Century Backgrounds
Cocheco Mills III
Now – all these fabrics are due to arrive in July and no sooner. July will be a very busy month for us. We will be releasing these fabrics for pre-order soon – I have to get the images on the website, figure out the total costs on the bundles etc. But it will be soon and definitely before we head out of town for the big NQA Quilt Show in Columbus Ohio in June!
**** A few things are changing in our neck of the woods. We will only be receiving ONE fabric collection of each of the above listed fabric lines and no more. So in other words – if you really want it – you better pre-order it – once it’s gone, we will not be getting anymore. We sold out of all Carolina by Jo Morton bundles the week before it arrived – so yes the fabric sells quickly
****Also – please read all messages on each of the fabric pages. If you are pre-ordering fabric and you order things that are already in stock – your entire order will be held until all items are in stock (with the exception of this sale that is running right now- you will pay separate shipping for pre-ordered fabrics if ordered on the same order form as sale fabrics —– please place separate orders!!!!!)
***** Please remember – we are an Internet based business only and do not have a store front. Please email us with any and all questions. We are on the phone constant dealing with other things regarding our business and cannot answer every phone call that comes in – email – it’s a beautiful thing.
And finally – we have made the decision not to attend Houston Quilt Festival this fall. My family and the time I spend with them is extremely important to me. My son is starting high school this fall and my daughter will be moving into the middle school. Many changes in their lives and I want to make sure I can devote more time to them and help with these school transitions.
Also – we just seem to keep hitting brick walls and coming upon obstacles with this show and one other one when trying to make arrangements for booth helpers, travel and travel expenses, hotel arrangements, vacation times etc. So – my rule of thumb – if things become to difficult to manage – then it’s time to do away with something in your life. Life is way to short to be stressed over things.
All this and the fact that I have some really big projects in my future have made me realize that I am only one person doing the job of 20 people. It’s time to cut back and de-stress a little.
Amen to that!
Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day!!
(oh – and almost forgot to mention – we will be out of town camping this weekend for Memorial Day and my son’s birthday. We will not be available to respond to any emails or phone calls from this Friday through Memorial Day!)
It feels like we’ve waited forever for this gorgeous collection of 1830’s reproduction fabrics to come!
(remember we are having a website wide sale right now!)
Now if I can just keep pestering my husband just a little more – I bet the lights will be up on our house this weekend! (Our house looks “naked” without the Christmas lights compared to the neighbors! LOL)
But the one new addition to my snowman decorating theme this year is this:
And this little Snow Pennyrug shown above my friends is my gift to you. This is our free pattern for the blog hop and we hope you enjoy it! Here’s your link to the PDF file for you to print and enjoy:
but for now I need to go bake another batch of these:
Surprise Package Cookies – here at our house, my husband and my kids really enjoy these cookies and they are begging for more.
Another fun holiday tradition (among many!) that we have is to venture off to Indiana on Christmas Eve to spend the afternoon and evening with my parents. There we have a nice dinner, open presents and chit chat. It seems like every year when we leave there and start heading for home – it snows. I wonder if this year will be any different! Here’s a little picture of my kids last year opening their presents from Grammy and Pappa!
Are they not cute!
Christmas Day itself is always a treat having children at home! They are growing up so quickly on us, but they know – you have to believe in Santa for Santa to come and leave you presents! After our morning of fun opening Christmas gifts, I get hard to work in the kitchen, cooking up a huge meal for my family and my husbands family and anyone else that shows up. We usually end up with a dozen or more, all gathered around the dinner table feasting on all the goodies!
Christmas is a time of family fun here in our home, see even our dog Harley gets in the Christmas spirit!
And of course we cannot finish this blog post without announcing our annual special holiday gift for you.
Oh and wait – I have another special “something” for you! For the next two Fridays prior to Christmas Eve (which would be December 10th and 17th) we will be posting another free pattern on each of those days! How fun is that? Each free pattern will be holiday oriented to help you finish decorating for the season! So be sure and follow along on our blog to see the other free patterns that are coming soon!
Remember how I’ve been hinting around for days now in my newsletters, here on the blog and on FaceBook about a special surprise on our website? (if you have not signed up for our newsletter yet – what are you waiting for! You can sign up at the very end of this blog post!)
Here it is…..
The Big Announcement…..
Oh and don’t forget to keep following along – we have 2 more people on this Blog Hop! Here’s the line up with links to all the Blogs in case you’ve missed any of us!
