Weekly fun and QBF!

Welcome back!

This week was just as chaotic around here as every other week.  My parents, Cathy and Allan, are at the Pinwheels and Friends Quilt Show in Mount Kisco today and tomorrow.  That means we spent the whole week organizing what they will bring and getting them packed up, always a fun time around here!

I have also been busy getting ready for our annual Super Bowl Fat Quarter sale this Saturday and Sunday.  All pre-cut fat quarters in the store will be $1.50 on 1/31 and 2/1.  Thank you to my Aunt Anne for taking Carter for a ride to visit grandma and grandpa at the quilt show! This meant I could actually get a few things done around the shop before the sale starts tomorrow, although I decided it would be fun to write my blog before I got involved in too many things.  

Last Friday we started our new “Quilt Blast Friday” or QBF.  Every Friday we will choose a special item that will be discounted that Friday through Monday.  There will be a coupon code located on the homepage of our website as well as in our "Store Events" page to be used for your online order.  This week this special deal is a 10% discount on the entire Diary of a Wimpy Kid Fabric Collection (ONLINE ONLY).  Enter the code WIMPYKID10 in your cart to obtain the discount.  Be sure to check back every Friday to see what the exciting discount for the weekend may be! 

With everything else going on this week, I didn’t have a lot of time to play with my Ready Set Go Collection by Robert Kaufman.  I did start and my mind is still planning exactly what I’m going to do with it.  Hopefully I will be able to share the final product with you in another couple of weeks.   It is a good thing Carter isn’t old enough to know it’s for him or he may be upset that I’m making him wait!

I did get a chance to finish my bunny for the Violet Craft Forest Abstractions quilt.  I just love how all of these animals are coming out!  I just have to finish the coyote and then I can put it all together.  I cannot wait to see how my students’ falcons came out when they return for the second class on 2/7!

Last week I had mentioned spending my Friday afternoons absorbing my vitamin D while thinking about my blog.  I was thankfully informed by a reader that the window must be open in order to be able to collect and process the vitamin.  I will be sure to open the window if the sun ever comes out and the snow stops falling.  Maybe in the spring I can sit outside on Friday afternoons to write my blog!

I hope everyone has another fabulous week!!  If you are in the area please stop by to enjoy the pre-cut fat quarter sale and if you are not local I hope you enjoy our QBF specials!

Thank you
