While I thought things might slow down a bit after Quilt Market (the trade show) was over, I was mistaken, and I’ve continued to be busier than a mosquito in a nudist colony.
Add to that, I’ve been without my longarm quilting machine for 10 days (and counting), and I still have 15 customer quilts to finish in time for Christmas! I’ll hopefully be back in business by Thursday. If not, I’ll be over here having a major panic attack and meltdown!
Due to it being the holiday season and all, and I still didn’t get the Canning Season Quilt-Along started, I’ve decided to put that off until the beginning of next year. Once we’re all done with the holidays, and settling into dealing with the winter months (unless you live somewhere where it’s never winter), I think we’ll all have a bit more time to deal with it, right?
So . . . my plan from now until the end of the year is to entertain you with some other stuff: recipes, stories, quilty stuff, and even a couple of give-aways. And we’ll start the Quilt-Along in January sometime (exact date yet to be determined, but stay tuned).
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for some stocking stuffers, I have vintage-style recipe cards and mini-notepads for sale, featuring some artwork from the book.
The recipe cards come in sets of 10 (5 of each design), or I can make you a custom set if you need more than 10. They’d be great with a handwritten recipe on them, tucked into a gift of kitchen utensils or with some potholders, or tied to a jar with some of the fixin’s inside. Or fill a vintage recipe box with them!
The recipe cards are also available as a printable file, so you can just buy the download and print them yourself on card stock, as many times as you need.
The mini notepads would make great gift tags or stocking stuffers, too. They come as a set of 2 (1 of each design) for just a dollar plus shipping.
To purchase, just visit my Etsy shop.
And, let’s kick things off right now with a give-away. I won’t go into how it happened, and names are being withheld to protect the guilty, but I have some — ahem — rain-damaged copies of my book. Some of them were beyond salvageable, but a few just got a bit wet on the corner, so they’re still perfectly readable and useable, it’s just that some of the pages are a little warped. If you don’t mind that, then this give-away is for you! I have four copies to give away, and I’ll be sure and autograph them for you. All you have to do to have a chance to win one of them is leave a comment on this post. I’ll draw for four winners on December 15th. And I’ll throw in a set of recipe cards as a bonus!
And be sure and check back soon for all the things I have coming up, including info about the upcoming Quilt-Along!
