$5.00 Friday, 1-27-23

This week it’s Stand Up Straight!

This is the original


Last week was Dress For Success

Here is the original.

The first week was Say “Please”

Here’s the original.

Each of these patterns are available for $5.00 and a SASE – I can get two patterns in one envelope.

Income from the sale of these patterns pays the bills for the blog – which isn’t free to Country Threads. It’s free to you and we want to keep it that way.

We’re having a ground blizzard today and my phone has quit? It won’t charge and I’m not sure I want to drive to Mason City in a ground blizzard resulting in slick roads. It’s always something, isn’t it?

    Love the new Stand up Straight! I will have to go through my fabric stash to see if I could make it with what I have. That is my goal now…using up my stash.

    Mary on your phone you may want to try holding the button on the front that unlocks the screen and the off button that shuts off the phone at the same time for afre seconds. May have to do it a couple times.

    Thanks for the pictures of the quilts you have for sale.
    Stay safe!

    I love seeing your original quilts and your updated versions!!! It’s amazing what a change in palette does to change the quilts!

    Stay safe and enjoy your phone-free day! Hopefully Rick has his phone in case of emergency!

    Mary, check inside the charging port on your phone. Carefully pull out fuzz that may have gathered in there.

    Hi Mary, hope you get your phone issues sorted out soon. New Zealand has had heavy rain up the top of the north island, particularly in Auckland, 2 people dead in floods, fortunately we are ok at the bottom of the island, but due for heavy rain this afternoon. Both my machines need help, hope they are ok, I’m very attached to my old Berninas!. Take care everyone, best wishes from Sandy

      Sandy – I have three 1230 Berninas and have even replaced motors because I don’t want a new computerized machine! I, too, love my old Berninas.

    Morning Mary, you mentioned possibly writing a baby bullseyes pattern or did I dream it when I found my smaller flannel circles cut from my former bull eyes quilt. I do hope this will be one you consider in your Friday sales?????

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Kathy – yes, I sure will! I need time to write it up and get it quilted first.

      1. Kathy

        Wonderful!! I am anxious to see yours. I love my bullseye quilt so I know this baby one will be another fun project to make. Thanks.

    Have you tried blowing in the charging hole? Lick on the charger ?

    Have a good weekend.
