Wow…there were lots of comments yesterday!!! I was decorating the house and my phone was constant little jingle every time someone posted a comment…so I’m glad there are so many of you reading the blog!!!
Couple of things…The cookie recipe is very moist…place the finished dough in a couple of big hunks and wrap in plastic wrap and chill..when your ready to roll them out…flour the surface, flour the pin, flour your hands and roll into a big ball to roll out…this is working more flour into the dough …it not a normal dough to start…that is why I think they are so good…
We also noticed the site was not letting you order the mats sometimes…saying it was no longer available or sold out…this is NOT the case…you can order up until Dec 31 on ALL items. So if you wanted to order the mats and couldn’t here is the link again OLFA MAT
Please read the whole post…some of you will ask questions and the answer is in the post! So if we do not answer you..read the post. I know we all only like to look at the pictures and all this text is…blah blah blah…I’ll make sure to have lots of pictures!!!
Also your comment may not show up right away…I have to approve some of them from time to time…I don’t know why this is…it might be a spam control thing..but I check my computer several times a day, unless I’m on some kind of mission.
I will post the Ginger Cookie recipe again…
Remember the HOLD option on every order if you want to accumulate and help us order ahead if we need to by the time this ends and we have to ship them to you.
Day 11….MAGNETIC PINBOWLS!
Do you know what a pinbowl is? It’s a 4″ metal bowl with a huge magnet on the bottom of it!!! Of coarse we can make them in many…many colors!!! Now I use them for my pins obviously…and they work awesome with our binding clips as well, and even a bobbin holder if you want an assortment of them! These are also the perfect gift for your quilting friends birthdays and whatever you need a gift for..this bowl and a set of shiny new fine pins or the cool multicolored binding clips are perfect!
My son, Jake is making them at the warehouse when he has any spare moments…He made 40 of them for the girls at the Home for the Holidays retreat in CA about a week ago and they all loved them!!! We also sold a bunch of them at both stores during the Primitive Christmas event…I know we didn’t tell anyone online because we weren’t organized before Primitive Christmas so we decided to save it for this promotion!!! Now I know you see a couple more colors here in this picture of Jake’s work station, but we have to limit to the 10 colors for now and we can add more later…Jake sands, primes and paints each bowl…he then adds the dots…so each pinbowl is handcrafted by hand just for our wonderful quilters!!! I have them everywhere…but please note: If you have a computerized machine…please keep it a safe distance away from the machine…I think you could possibly mess up your computer if they are kept by the machine…Don’t keep it there…there are plenty of other places where the pin bowls can live…by the ironing board, by the cutting table when your pinning big borders…and so on..I don’t have to worry as my JUKI is not computerized…but better to be safe than sorry…I don’t want you to mess up those expensive machines…
Now the price is $15 for one…$25 if you order 2 and $12.50 for any more thereafter…now the price will be not be right in your cart if you order more than one…but we will change it manually when we process to $12.50 per bowl, no worries…because you may want three different colors it will not compute 3 for $37.50…so bear with this please. Order your PINBOWLS here!
Jake is Jace’s (“little man”) Daddy…I love it when I get to watch Jace when Mommy has to help out where she used to work…Friday “little man” hung out all day with us at the studio…See how he was helping with the quilt we were building? Then some of Jace’s Christmas present came while he was there so we thought we should make sure he liked them before we gave them to him…He loved his new Teepee! I will not show you any more as I might have to save some to share later…
I know the days will fly by now that is is 12 days of needful things…this always makes the time fly!!! Time to cut out a new quilt!!! LB
