Dear Friends, Can it possibly be July next week? But whether we are ready or not, the 4th is next week, so I will have to buy hotdogs and hamburgers and Randy and Joseph will fire up the grill. I just hope the downpours end by then especially for the fireworks. But if it is still raining, I can image this being Randy & Joseph -
Somehow if this happens I don't think that the food will look this good, but I hope the taste is there!
I will keep this note short and sweet. This has been a difficult month as Randy as been ill and my mother had to have surgery. Mother is on the mend and I want to thank everyone for keeping her in your prayers. We're still trying to get Randy sorted out...as you know he is really just a work in progress!
First regarding the Kaffe Mystery quilt block for June...yes I did say June barely....
The packages left the warehouse and I just checked the tracking number and they are scheduled for delivery tomorrow.
I have been assured that next month the blocks will go out on the 15th.
Secondly, I have been checked in lots of new Christmas collections and plan to have Christmas in July starting on the 25th and through the end of the month. More on this in the next newsletter. (I know that Wednesday is an odd day to start, but I will be gone for a week to a shop owner's "restore" program until the 24th.)
Below is a link to look at new collections that are now checked in - still have about 2 dozen more boxes to open (and to think I was only out of the shop for 2-1/2 days). Great collections will such as Something Blue will be arriving shortly.
Use the code "fireworks2018" and your order will be discounted another 10% (will not work on contract items such as Creative Grid rulers or Accuquilt products). Sale prices will remain in effect and by using this coupon code, your order will be discounted at checkout for the additional 10% off.
And finally in trying to give you a Randy type chuckle:
