Good Afternoon! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday. Hunka and I went out to brunch with my Wilster aka Bill. We came home and crashed because we ate too much. I’d say that was a happy day! Yes??
Hunka and I decorated outside yesterday. We are having 50 degree plus weather so it was a perfect time. We raked leaves and decorated. Out with the Fall in with the Christmas. Moving here we were so excited to see all of these trees in our yard. Almost 5 years later, not so much with the trees. I swear the Palm trees in California never dropped anything into my yard except a frawn every now and then. ONE not hundreds. :)
Ok onto business, enough chatter. But you know I do love the chatter.
Cyber Monday discount code. MONDAY and it is 25% off everything on the website. It will be active at midnight and be for one day only. Happy Shopping!!!!
I have to post a photo. It’s not a happy newsletter if I don’t. Play along ok?
All we need now is that white stuff. I have a lot of extra pieces of batting………….could I make my own snow?
Have a great day!!!!

I know, I know I haven’t switched over yet. I am a big chicken!!!! Things are going to smoothly right now. I have to do it I know. I will, I will. :)
Until I do, I might as well chat with you here right?
I’m planning a Quilting Retreat in May of 2014. It will be May 2-4th in my town of Wildwood, Missouri. It will be three days of fun and sewing. Along with surprises , door prizes, and games.
If you plan on flying in you will go to Lambert Airport. It’s about a 25 minute drive to here.
Please let me know if this sounds like something you want to do with us. I need to reserve my block of rooms asap because the hotel is filling up already.
Cost is going to be $150.00 per person. Rooms are to be booked once I reserve my block of rooms. They will be $89.00 per night. So for two nights you will need to reserve. They are double occupancy. Queen beds. Rooms have a fridge and microwave in them. The hotel is beautiful. 8 restaurants are within walking distance. Starbucks across the parking lot. Woot Woot!!! And it’s just like Cheers, they know my name!!!! Continental Breakfast is provided at the hotel. I will provide lunch for the two days and then dinner you are on your own. Did I say Margaritas are close by too????? P A R T Y!!!!
We can sew Friday anytime after 4pm, Saturday all day, Sunday until 5pm.
You will work on whatever project you wish. Bring your machines, and projects. I will have an ironing board or two and irons to use. Along with cutting mats.
I will set up a little store in the room we have to sew with some fun things, kits, thread, fabric, etc. Hunka just might be manning that one for us. You do wanna see him right? :))
Deposit needs to be in quick though. $75.00 will save your spot and I can book this whole thing.
Here are the links to the hotel.
Any questions please let me know. I can’t wait to hear from you and I hope you attend my Daisy Cottage first retreat.

This is to let everyone know I will be activating my new website in the next day or two. Most likely Tuesday. Please be patient with me when placing orders. It’s new to me and also I’m still uploading tons of stuff on it. If you saw something on the previous one and now you don’t, please email me. It’s here I just haven’t uploaded that product yet. Pretty much the newest things are on the site first.
The 4.99 fabric and 2.99 patterns you might want to snag now if you’re interested. Those will be the very last things I get back on the website. If at all. Some I will be donating so they won’t be back
Newsletter: Here is the link to sign up for the new one. As of Tuesday the old one will be gone and I won’t have your info anymore. So PLEASE sign up again here.
Just a couple pictures before I go. Not of a product but of my new little girl Skylar Kay Yeager.
Saturday Dennis aka Hunka and I got to go pick our new little girl out. It was so hard at first then this one got in my lap and never left. She will be coming home in a couple weeks for good. We hated to leave her there but she’s still needing her momma for a bit more.
I hope you are enjoying your Sunday and getting some sewing time in.

It’s meeeee again!! Are you sick of me yet? I don’t want you to forget about me over here. :) Not to mention all this new is flowing in from Quilt Market.
January is coming and so are new block of the months. One that I’m very excited about it Quilty Fun using Lori Holt’s new book. This will be a 12 month block of the month. I guess you could say row of the month. It will be 12.99 per month. You can sign up for it on the website now and reserve your spot.
You will need to purchase the book from me for this BOM. If you’ve already purchased it from me, just let me know when you sign up. The book has some other great things inside it too. Not just this quilt.
A new one in April will be this. I believe in snowmen. I have the fabric Winter Wonderland from Bunny Hill on order and it will arrive in April. The pattern should be here soon if you just want to buy that and do it on your own.
Doggone Cute is another one that will begin in January. http://daisycottagequilting.com/store/#!/~/product/category=407215&id=29743072
These are the first two blocks I’ve made. Isn’t it cute?
NEW items. Red Storklette Needle Minder. http://daisycottagequilting.com/store/#!/~/product/category=397862&id=29759340
Lynette Anderson’s pattern Christmas Fun Wallhanging and the button set. http://daisycottagequilting.com/store/#ecwid:category=397862&mode=category&offset=0&sort=addedTimeDesc
I’ve added a new category. 4.99 Fabric. No code is needed. They have all been marked down for you.
This is it’s last stop. Please take a look this week. I’m hoping to activate my new website this week. Hoping. I’m scared I gotta admit. Fingers crossed I’ll get some courage and just take the plunge. But in the mean time there are some great fabrics over there marked down.
Some new scissors just added and more coming this week.
That’s it. That’s all I got right now. Starting my holiday decorating tomorrow. I just can’t stand it. Any chance to bring out more RED in the house. I’m all over it.
Yes I will take pics and show you a little at a time. Don’t wanna bore ya.
Have a great week.

Well hello there!!! Back from Houston Quilt Market refreshed and ready to roll. My friend Carol and I had a great time. Found lots of new things to share. I bought Anna Griffin fabric for the first time. Loved it, also bought lots of fabric from Blend Fabrics. Fell in LOVE with several lines. Bunny Hill’s new red/white Christmas line is ordered as well. And I will be doing her Snowman BOM soon. Loved it!
Here’s some of what’s new. You can find it on the website.
This is a new kit called Gladys. I could not help myself. I would have snuck that quilt out if I could have. LOL This quilt is going to look so cute on my kitchen table. It’s 60×60. The kit has everything in it to make the quilt top. The quilt is much brighter in person. You know me and my RED. It’s so cute!
This is the Gladys fabric which is also on the website if you just want a few pieces. Instead of the whole quilt. I love the rooster print. These are 3 of the 7 that are on the website. http://daisycottagequilting.com/store/#!/~/category/id=397862&offset=0&sort=addedTimeDesc
Christmas in the Cabin. http://daisycottagequilting.com/store/#!/~/category/id=397862&offset=18&sort=addedTimeDesc
Ironing Board Organizer. http://daisycottagequilting.com/store/#!/~/category/id=397862&offset=18&sort=addedTimeDesc
In The Meadow………..Months of Snow……………Smiley Tree.
Rosalie Quinlans fabric Logs. Candy Bloom and Nellies Hill are two that I brought home. I didn’t get many so these are limited to what I have.
They are 2 1/2″ x 42 inches long. and there are 26 pieces I believe.
New Kits. These candle mats are already precut out all you do is sew the things on top. Doesn’t get any easier than this. And they are cute!
Ok girls, I will let you take all of this in and be back soon with more goodies I added to the website. Or you can feel free to just check out the JUST ADDED category.
Thank you for all of your business. I appreciate it very much!!!

Marmalade Tutorial block 5 and 6
If you signed up for this your two kits are on the way.
Block 5 is in your yellow bag and the Block 6 is in the blue bag I’m sending you.
Block 5………………Lets cut four green squares 1- 1/2″
Four 1-1/2 x 4-1/2″ rectangels
Two 2 1/2 inch squares from one floral print and two 2 1/2″ squares from a matching print for the center of the block.
Lay out your pieces as I’ve layed mine out below. Sew them together in rows. First sew the right side, the 1 1/2 green piece to the white 1 1/2×4 1/2 rectangle to the green 1 1/2″ piece. Next sew the center section together. Sew the center squares together to make a four patch. Join the top strip and the bottom strip. Then sew the left section together as you did the right one.
Finished 6″ block
Next we will do block 6. This is a 12 inch block
Let’s cut 16 yellow 2″ squares, 16 red 2″ squares………Cut 4 3 7/8″ squares from the yellow and the same from the white.
Lay a yellow and a white 3 7/8″ square right sides together. Draw a line down the center. Sew 1/4″ each side of the drawn line. Cut on the drawn line.
This is what you will have after you cut on the diagonal line. You will need to have 8 of these half square triangle blocks.
Make 8 four patch blocks with the 2″ squares. Then lay all of your blocks out just like mine below. Sew the block together in rows.
Now you have two new blocks for your sampler.
Here’s what we have done so far. Of course you can lay your blocks out in any way you like. I’m still not sure how I will end up doing mine either. But I’m loving it so far.

Happy October and happy cooler weather. I think we are all happy with that last part. I’ve been able to crawl under my quilt and sleep much better the last week. Even sewing a binding on a new quilt is much more enjoyable now.
We are still working on the new website. I’m slow at this stuff I know. Plus it’s pretty boring and I’d rather be sewing. But it’s looking good. Someday you’ll get to see it too. lol
Here are the NEW things. That’s what you really want to see right?
These three are just a few of the new Scrumptious fabrics I’ve added to the website. And they are truly scrumptious.
The new line called Sidewalks from Riley Blake.
We have a couple of the bundles from this line Sidewalks too.
Patterns, lots of new patterns. These are just some of them. The rest can be found under JUST ADDED
Little Quilts in the Coop
Mouse in the Matchbox is restocked.
Quilty Fun. A new book by Lori Holt. You can preorder it at the link below. I can’t wait to see the book. It should be here soon.
BFF pattern set. Some of you have asked about just buying the set of patterns for this block of the month. I now have it listed on the website if you were one of them wanting it.
The patterns are all pre-stamped on linen and all you have to do it stitch.
Don’t forget to check out the 2.50 pattern section on the website. When they are gone, they are gone. The link is below.
There’s more that is new. Please take a look at the website and check them out.
The Marmalade tutorial kits are going out. Sorry for delay in that.
Thank you for your continued support. I appreciate it.
