A Little This ‘n That, 12-6-21

A sale is on the horizon! And I promise to let you know all the details in the next few weeks – you’re too busy with Christmas to think about fabric right now. You remember I told you Connie will be moving next year and she’ll be forced to sell fabric, kits, patterns, props, books and other quilting paraphernalia and you guys can take advantage of Connie’s downsizing.

This will be all handled by Connie and orders will NOT be sent to the Country Threads address. No sense hauling all that stuff out to the farm to package and then hauled back to town to the post office, right?

She will be including some free patterns on the blog to use the fabric packs she will be selling – something on this order:

Here is an example of what she makes to sell at Junkin Gal – simple but oh, so cute!

Reader quilts:

Don’t forget these Country Threads patterns:

Out On A Limb
A Song In The Air
Red and White Snowball and Disappearing 4 Patch

So that’s the news from the farm!

P.S. I promise to keep you informed about Connie’s sale details as they come available.

      Gail – Connie and Roy are leaving Garner to live at their lake home at Okoboji, Iowa – about 2 hours west of here

    I love a parade🎶🎶…no a SALE.🎶! I’m singing already.
    Great quilts in the show today.

    The wind calmed down today to a breeze. Good thing, it was 7 degrees this morning.

    Maybe I can make a small 2-color snowball quilt next year. I really like this pattern and your red and white quilt.

    Connie’s quilts are adorable. Are they mini’s? Hope she isn’t moving too far away.
    Great little quilt show today.
    I always enjoy your red and white quilts, Mary.
    Very dark, grey and rainy here today. At least we aren’t having the high winds many of you are experiencing.

      Sue – yes, the quilts are small. She is moving to their lake house 2 hours away.

    Always fun to see reader and your and Connie’s quilts. I will look forward to Connie’s sale because I sooo need more fabric, patterns, and kits. Ha! It is still windy here.

    The red and white snowball pattern is one of my favorites and I loved making mine. I have so much Christmas blue fabric in both light and dark shades that I always wondered how it would look made up using my stash for it. Nice quilts shown today as always. We had dinner by candlelight just in case we lost power with this wind howling. Sure would not want to be sitting out in the Bills game in Buffalo!! Some things are better seen safely on my tv in my warm home.

      I need to make some red and white quilts. I tend to go with the cooler colors of blues and greens. Every Christmas I wish I had some red and white quilts.

      I’ll be waiting for news of the sale. I can’t imagine Connie having to pack up a house to move. Her sewing room that you showed once is amazing and full to the brim with treasures.

    I love that snowman in the photo A Song in the air. The quilts are great too,of course! Happy Holidays to you!🌲

    So sorry that Connie is moving away & selling all her beautiful fabric & patterns. Reader quilts are awesome! Love the red & white quilts! Looking forward to the sale!

    Chin up ladies, Connie always spent summers at the lake and 2 hours away isn’t even close to the end of the world!! The sad part is her fabric and good stuff can’t go along! Mercy. Do lake houses have basements? Will she have a sewing room?
    In the meantime, take care, and enjoy every day no matter what the weather. If there were no cloudy days, we wouldn’t enjoy the sunny days as much. Betty in Rapid City

      Betty K – as I write this post the contractors are building her new sewing room extending the house. The cabinets have arrived and Roy is putting them together. And yes, they have a basement which is already sleeping quarters with a kitchen! She will have so much for sale next spring!
