Rick’s blood work was all negative and within normal limits today. I stayed home to wait for the vet to call about Rosie but neither vet could come today so one will come tomorrow morning at 9 am. I was trying to figure out how old Rosie is and I think she is 15 – wow! If I’m right she’s the oldest goat I’ve ever had. She deserves to rest.
Julie sent all these quilt pictures – all quilts have been donated except the last one – red, white and blue which she couldn’t part with and I don’t blame her.
A reader sent this – hmmm, anybody else heard of this?
Look at this sweet note card!
I always say more pictures, less text but now please keep reading.
Now let’s talk about patterns. When I showed Connie’s home with all her wonderful fall quilts I set off a wave of pattern sales. I’m going to put a deadline on the fall quilts – December 1. Anything postmarked after December 1 will be returned.
I will find a few Christmas patterns to make available and will post them asap. I ran into quite a few issues at the post office this morning. This was one – an envelope that was sent to me with a postmark of November 7 which became illegal on November 8, long before I received it. And since it was empty the postage was wrong anyway after I put a pattern inside. So I had to pay for this all over again. A paper pattern doesn’t need a bubble mailer and in one business envelope it would have been only one stamp. To the reader who sent this: I understand how thoughtful your intentions were but the post office didn’t care! Haha!! Not to worry – it’s on its way!
I also found out I can send only two sheets in one envelope for one stamp. It’s the appliqué patterns that make everything so difficult – multiple 11×17” pages because of all the shapes.
When you send a SASE it saves me precious time and I don’t worry about making a mistake on your address. The Christmas pattern I post next will have been taken to the post office and weighed in an envelope first.
Do you still want to do this? Other than the online store, it’s the only way to purchase our old patterns. Yes, you can make a request but I make no guarantees that I’ll find the pattern or how quickly. I searched for Old Glory Farm and then never got the order.
I’m so sorry – it’s gotten complicated and the post office is not helping! So many rules and regulations! I’ll go a bit slower next time and won’t post multiple patterns all at once. This was Connie ‘s fault – her beautiful house all decorated with fall quilts! Let’s blame her. Ha!
Remember the doctor who told us to substitute ice tea for beer? Rick had a follow up appointment today and his blood work was all normal. Probably that ice tea effect.
