Posted May 22nd, 2011 in Coming Soon
Oh sorry, I got carried away there. I love that song. Do you know it?
Hey I’m back!!! Please tell me it’s ok. Seriously tell me!!! I’m on a roll with these blogs. I’ve been updating my Red Geranium Cottage blog and this one. Are you checking them both out? Are you a follower on both of them?
Don’t think I forgot about doing give aways because I have not. I’ve been gathering stuff for some lucky person. And I’m still getting some of my orders and I want to add some new patterns to the give away. So please be patient it will be worth it and you know it will. I hope the person that won last time I went to market enjoyed her stuff. I’m not sure I ever heard from her. :(
Remember every month starting with May, I’m giving away at $25 gift certificate to one lucky person that has placed an order for that month. I may even up it to $50 after awhile because, well, that’s how I roll.
So this weekend I decided to not work on any orders and sew in my favorite part of the house. The basement. Wanna see what I did? Well even if you don’t I’m gonna show. So you might want to log off if your not interested. Just kidding!! Don’t you dare log off.
This is a kit that’s been on the website. Red/Yellow 9 patch kit. I just had the top done but decided it needed quilted. It looks soooooo much better. I used my ladybug pattern to quilt it. I could use that on everything. It’s giant ladybugs.
This background fabric to the best!!! I love those little gnomes. I’m working on another quilt using the Wee Folks line. If it’s red and has polka dots, it’s mine!!
Doesn’t he make you smile?? I asked hubby that and his response was…………..”Does HE make me smile???” lololol I guess that’s my answer.
Next up for quilting is this one. It’s a kit too. Sorry it’s upside down. I need to get this one going so I can put it on my front porch for the 4th of July.
There’s more but I think I best stop. Or the newsletter thingy wont let me send.
How about seeing some Quilt Market? Do you not love Crabapple Hill patterns? Meg does the most beautiful work. I love to do stitchery and have never made any of her things. But that’s going to change. I’m going to make a few of the new things we saw at market. Here Meg is with my BFF Nancy.
This is one of her new designs. It was so pretty in person. Look at that RED!!! You know that is what drew me to it. It’s called Joyful Poinsettias. It’s on the website. Meg uses some great glittery looking Cosmo threads in her work and I have them on order.
Meg had a couple very cute new pillowcase patterns. This is The Night Before Christmas Pillowcase.
Trim the Tree is this one. How cute is it???? Very cute, that’s how cute!!!! This might be the one I start with.
There is also a few new Halloween patterns on the website too. This is one of them. I love Halloween don’t you? This is called Pumpkin Time, there is one pattern on the site called Which Witch’s Boot and Happy Happy Halloween Pillowcase pattern.
I’ll be back this week with another newsletter. And some new block of the months. A Christmas one, a Patriotic one, and just a plain old cute one. I hope it’s ok if I bug you again mid week with another newsletter. If not, you can always delete me. But please don’t do that. :(
One bit of info before I go. I have to say that every order will at least go out Flat Rate Priority which will be the 5.00 charge. I just can’t keep shipping small orders in little envelopes because that is taking me so long to do plus I like to have the tracking info when I do send. And after I buy envelopes, tape, my tissue paper and take it the P.O. it’s already cost me 5.00. Also I’ve been trying to get orders out as fast as I can but that is not good enough for some. So now I’m going to let you know that it could take as long as 6 days before I ship orders. It is only me, I do it all and I can only do so much. I think I’m pretty good at getting orders out. But every now and then it takes me a bit longer. Life happens I guess you can say. I’ll still try and get orders out quick but in case I don’t please don’t email me after two days and ask where your order is. It will go out I promise!! I do ship orders as I get them in. First in goes out first. It’s just the way it is. Only fair. I’ve gotten nasty emails with some saying that I MUST get the order one day, ship it out the next. PERIOD. Can I tell you that one person who said that to me got her close to 400.00 sent right back to her. And there was two others that got their money. I do not need the money that bad. Do not be rude to me!! I do the best I can do. If you did your order four days ago and your asking me where it is………….well give me time, it’s going to go out. Maybe not quick enough for you but it will go out. I hate having to address this but it’s getting bad. I don’t get why women have to be so rude. There is a nice way to email and ask about your order and that’s fine but nasty is not accepted here. Sorry.
Ok, that’s my rant for the day!! I mean night!! lolol Lots of fun things to show so keep watching. And thank you to all of you for your orders and the nice email you send me. Because I do get a lot of nice ones that outweigh the nasty ones. So I thank you.
I got the call today that Flower Sugar and Happy Holidays from Lecien are on the way to the Daisy Cottage. I can’t wait. The previous Flower Sugar lines has been one of my all time favorites. Matter of fact, I never want to cut into it. That is until I saw there was a new one coming. So I started cutting away. Gotta make room for new right? Then there is Monica of The Happy Zombie blog’s new line called Happy Holidays. That is toooo cute. Both will be here by the end of the week I hope. And as soon as they arrive I’ll send out an email letting everyone know. What to make?? What to make?? I’m so excited to start a new project with both lines. If your not familiar with these I’ll post a photo on here so you can see. I hope this photo isn’t too small. I took this from Monica’s site. But you get the idea. Very cute Christmas fabric. This is Happy Holiday.
This is just a few of the Flower Sugar prints I ordered.
And many more. Many of you have asked that I email you when this arrives. If anyone else would like me to do that please send me a message through the “contact” button. And I’d be happy to.
Thanks for all the nice comments I’ve gotten, and thanks for helping me out on the things that aren’t quite working right on the newsletter and the website. We’re still working on fixing some of that. If you haven’t joined my Daisy Cottage Quilting facebook page go on over and “LIKE” me. I wanna be LIKED you know. Doesn’t everyone?
See you next time!!
Is anyone out there??? It’s me!! I finally made it to the world wide web with my new website called Daisy Cottage Quilting. With a little help from my Webmaster. Yes that’s right I have my own Webmaster. Can I tell you I think he’s awesome!!!
Over the next few days I’ll be uploading lots of merchandise. Right now if you see something it’s just a test. Give me a few days and hopefully I can figure this whole thing out and we can get down to business. I’ll be doing a give away on my other blog to let you know this site is ready to roll. Please be patient with me, I’m new at this and I’m sure there will be some mistakes long the way. But I’ll promise you I’ll make it right and correct whatever goes wrong.
If your leaving me a message/comment some are not coming through but we’re working on it. If you don’t hear from me you’ll know I never got the message.
While your here don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter. That way when I update you’ll be the first to know of specials, new fabric, etc.
Wish me luck!!!!!
