Friday Fun Day and the Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Do you believe I still have about 5 packages from the sale to ship out. All ones that I am waiting on answers from the buyers but still. I just finished yesterday. CRAZY Honextly never have seen anything like that. When I open the shop everyone will be dissapointed because all of the fabric is gone LOL Okay maybe not but ... seriously!!!

My sweet friend Shanna at Fiber of all Sorts is hosting the giveaway today. Here is what you could win:

So head on over and enter on her blog.

Since tomorrow is December... sheesh where did this month go??... I was thinking I would put a link to my Christmas Runner tutorial that I did last year. Since I never posted it here but did it for my sweet friend Sally's blog. It is funny... I come up with wierd names for my items that have obscure meanings that only I understand. I called this one "Better Than Mistletoe" and then this year I had to remember why... it took me a while :)


So if you would like to make one of your own (super fast project, I promise) you can click HERE for the PDF and here are the two templates Circle and Bow.

My friend Jenelle posted some awesome tutorials for Holiday items today on her blog as well (I especially love the mushrooms) head over and check them out at Echinops and Aster.

Have a super weekend!

Love,
Julie

Happy Birthday To Me... and Happy Monday

Hi Everyone,

Yep, it's my birthday I am mumble mumble years old today. So what does my awesome birthday have in store... first I have to get dressed then I have to fight my way through traffic to the dr. office so I can get my wound checked out. If you haven't seen the facebook page I had a little accident with a certain sharp object on Saturday. Then I need to get to work becuase I still have at least 40 orders to get out from Friday. I guess that is what I get for having a b-day on Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend :) But at least one day this week I am going to take a break and go shopping. I need clothes bad.

So let's jump on the "Giving Handmade" bandwagon and support some of our fellow artists this Chistmas. Head on over and see my friend Cori for a list of great independant shops and an awesome bunch of giveaway prizes. Here is one of the two prizes that I am giving away:

A bundle of all of Lizzy's bracelets. No, they aren't in yet. I got these at sample spree when I was at Market :)

Hope you all enjoy my birthday :) Have an awesome week :)

Disclaimer

Hey Everyone,

I am so sorry. My husband came home tonight and asked me if I planned on giving something to everyone that commented because he said that I said that. I am so sorry if you thought that. I feel terrible. It was early in the morning and I guess I was not clear when I wrote it. I meant that I woud do a drawing for the goodies. I have a few things and I will even through in a few more of my own things so that a few people can win. My apologies if I mislead you in any way. You can keep commenting until Midnight PST US time then I will draw some names in the morning.

I apologize again.

Thanks,
Julie

Happy Monday

Hi Everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving week! So I thought I would show some pictures from Market... yes I know a little late but oh well. I am updating the coming soon page slowly but surely. I had someone helping me with online things but she was having trouble working it around the family so I am on my own again.

Here are some things that are coming to the shop soon (in alphabetical order)

Alchemy Quilting Cotton and Voile:



Architextures:




Asbury


Bekko Home Dec



Blomma


 Constellations


Global Bazaar


Honey Honey


Indie Chic


Les Amis De Foret (My Sally made that cute little mini quilt)


 Sally also made that little mini hanging on the table



We spent a lot of time with Patty can you tell?


Comma



Posy



Salt Water


I want to do this (below) as a club block of the month in the shop :)

I am also getting the Hexagon kits for Salt Water... these are only a few of the tons of fabrics I have coming...

I downloaded tons of pictures yesterday so I should be able to get the coming soon page updated in the next couple days. I am taking Wednesday and Thursday off and wanted to spend a good part of Wednesday working on the website. Then we will have a Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale... and all heck will break lose :)

So if you read this far.... lucky you... if you leave a message here telling me what you are thankful for I will send you a fun pack of Market goodies if you are the winner of the random drawing. This drawing ends tonight at midnight PST.  So comment away.

Talk soon :)

Friday Fun Day ... The Giveaway and Ooops

Hi Everyone,

I woke up at 2:30 in the morning realizing I hadn't sent the Newsletter yesterday. I guess I was too busy being awesome :) If you can give me grace for a day or two I will have it out to you no later than Monday. Hopefully the internet and phone will be installed at the shop today so you all won't have to wait so long for me to answer your messages anymore. Half of the reason I forgot the newsletter was that I had 3 hours worth of messages and emails to answer when I got home last night and by then my brain was mush.

The Giveaway is a Fat Quarter Bundle of my favorite colorway of Flutter:



That Orange just makes me happy!


To win just leave a comment. The giveaway goes until Midnight 11/23

Talk soon.

Back by popular demand...

I am declaring "I am awesome and so are you!" day. Yes, you got it. Another day to feel good about yourself. In case you have forgotten the rules of the day this is what you need to do...

1. Do not put yourself down today. Today you are the perfect shape, weight, and height. You are brilliant and graceful.

2. Everything that happens today was meant to be. Don't worry about that guy in the fast lane going 40 miles an hour (he is trying to save you from the rat race). The guy that stole your lunch from the refrigerator (you needed a fresh one anyway). Etc....

3. All of your friends are awesome too. Tell everyone you know and love how great they are and why. Don't be vague, tell them they have the most perfect fashion sense. You love the way they make you laugh. Tell them what a big heart they have and how proud you are of them. Be sincere they will feel good about themselves and make others feel good too.

Don't forget to pass it on.... I am awesome and so are all of you!

Hugs!
Julie

Happy Monday!

Hi Everyone,

What's new with you??? I am glad there is no shipping today because that means I can just cut all day and wrap tomorrow. Sometimes if I have a lot of orders I have to cut for half the day then wrap and ship for the other half....

 Cuzco and Simply Color are in:


So after I worked on Saturday morning for a little while I finished this:

 It is my Pillow Talk Swap #9 pillow. It was what I was working on in the airports too and from Quilt Market.

This is the one I received:
Isn't it awesome! It is so perfect for me. I think it is funny that she and I thought of the same things and put the grey on the side with straight line quilting.

Did you get to sew this weekend? If so tell me what you made... and send pictures LOL

Hugs,
Julie

Saturday is the other Friday... the giveaway is here.

Hi Everyone,

It has been crazy here this week with no internet access during the day while I am at the shop (and they are now saying it is going to be next Friday before it is installed...ARGH!) So I didn't have a chance to post the giveaway yesterday:

Maureen is hosting this week so head on over to her blog and enter to win some Floressence.

Talk soon!

During Picture And A Few Market Pics

Hi Everyone,

I am so mad that Comcast won't even check the wiring at the shop for 5 days ... which means no internet or phone for probably a week. It is a pain... So I am stuck answering messages only in the morning and evening. ... Anyway... here is a during picture:


Cuzco is here... I have to get pics for the bundles today but it is listed.

And I thought I would show you some pictures of some of the new stuff that just arrived at the shop that I saw at Market:

Cosmos


 Laura Gunn on the left.

Tracey's Quilt

Frippery



Seven Wonders

Blooming Lovely


Flutter


Avignon





Big big thanks to my Sally for taking the pictures so I didn't have to lug my camera to Texas!
