New Patterns! 12-26-19

Christmas is over and it’s good to plan ahead. Let’s make a winter door banner and a couple Valentine projects!Read more here

Winter (Mittens) – $10.00 postage included.

Our mittens were hand appliqued but could easily be machine appliqued. Quilt measures 16″ x 42″.

Snowman – $10.00, postage included.

Snowman is pieced with appliqued details. Quilt measures 24″ x 54″.

Valentine Itty Bittys – $5.00 with a SASE IF THIS IS THE ONLY PATTERN YOU’RE ORDERING!

Itty Bitty quilts measure 10″ x 12″ and have fused hearts and letters. Also included is a pattern for a heart pincushion and two paper ideas. (Connie is so excellent with little paper projects like this that combine a fabric heart with details.). Here’s a closeup.

You get 3 fabric projects and 2 paper ideas – all for $5.00! If you’re ordering ONLY the Valentine pattern, please include a SASE. The other two patterns will require a larger envelope and extra postage which we will cover. Please re-read this so you send the right envelope. And it’s always a time saving step for us if you include an address label.

*****,,,,,””””””&&&&&&&$$$$$#####@@@@@!!!!!!! Do I have your attention yet???

Please bookmark this post so you can find it again. Otherwise I have to repost all these details.

I spent two hours on Christmas afternoon filling orders. CHRISTMAS PATTERNS ARE DONE! I do not have time to get them out again. Connie is still gone and I don’t usually have to visit the post office because she handles it. Not thinking about their stupid limited hours, I already drove to town once today only to find the post office closed!

OK – here’s the review.

Winter (mittens) – $10.00 postage included.

Snowman – $10.00 postage included

Valentines – $5.00 with a SASE included with your order if this is the only pattern you’re ordering. It’s a one sheet pattern and will fit in a business size envelope.

Did you read Martingale’s blog this morning? Here’s the link —Stitch This

Ken Burns has produced a quilt special on PBS at 7 pm central on Friday night.

It starts the same time as the Holiday Bowl but I’ll happily give up part of the football game, won’t you?

I try oh sooooo hard to remember all the details when we introduce new patterns – I wonder what I forgot this time. If you think of something send me an email ASAP.

    Mary – Is there a way I can send you the payment through Paypal? I want one of the postage paid patterns plus the little Valentine pattern so no SAE needed. Would be faster if I could pay you this way!

      Jacque – no PayPal. I would have already instructed that IF we accepted it but we don’t!

    I hope you were able to get the kitty checked out and its on the mend.

      Judy – oh, that is too funny! They really shouldn’t be crowing at night but I disturbed them.

    Loved the rooster crowing. My parrots took notice! Always look forward to Christmas in the barn. A great tradition. Happy New Year. Good luck with your knee surgery.

    Went to DVR the Ken Burns special, but found something else showing on all four PBS channels at 7:00 pm CT on Friday. Darn, I think it would be very interesting, as we enjoy his shows.

      Linda from MN – please check the time in your area – I think I was wrong.

    I wrote before but must have forgotten to hit “post.” I’m almost jumping for joy. This post came in and it had the “Read more of this post.” I don’t remember seeing it on the posts from Nov and Dec. Anyway I hit that AND everything was there, pictures, comments and the whole thing stayed in it’s normal form. I was beginning to feel like the step child because it wasn’t coming to my computer. I’m almost afraid to hope that was the problem and everything is fixed. You don’t realize how we all appreciate your efforts and the postings of cats, dogs, critters, patterns — everything. It is so enjoyable to see your email and really puts a nice note on the day.
    Glad you have just 2 weeks til your surgery. Then you can get on with the business of recovery. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be done.
    Oh, I’ve noticed before if our postings don’t show up right away, somebody is sending a message and my will go next in line?? Computers and their language confuse me.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everybody. Keep on quilting.

      Betty Klosterman – honestly I have no idea. Some days I can’t figure anything out and if it works I just have to be thankful.

    I have been wondering, too, if you got kitty in the carrier to go to the vet. I cannot tell you how many times we have had to call the vet and tell them that Gizmo is NOT getting into the carrier and we will not be able to make it. So frustrating!! I wish I had great tips to share. We have to bring the carrier up into the mudroom days in advance of any planned trip. Then Jenica grabs Gizmo in a body hug and carries him into the mudroom, we shut the door, and he simply gives up–knows he has to get in the crate at that point. Dogs are far easier!!!

    Jenica and I had a LONG conversation about Pete this afternoon. She is so very angry with Christa (our trainer) as things did not end up going as she had planned or wanted. Jenica has had to be an adult way too soon and has struggled with adult decisions when she was still a child. I am concerned that she is holding onto anger toward Christa that isn’t hurting Christa at all but is very definitely hurting Jenica. Good conversation that led to some searching. I was quite certain that I still had the initial bridle path clipping for both Patch and Pete, but I hadn’t been able to find them. I also knew that I had two of Pete’s teeth that had been extracted years ago to help him eat better. Again, had no idea where they might be. The two of us put our heads together and started searching. We quickly found the bridle path clippings. The teeth took far longer, but we had success and now have some options for her as far as some mementos that we can have made for her. My heart breaks for her in the grief she has for her soul mate pony.
    I will be setting aside time to make a new door banner. Snowman should be good for several months here in Colorado!!
