Jessica asked me to give you couple of gentle reminders from the Shop today…first…
The 12 Days items are not meant to be Christmas presents delivered in time for Christmas. We ship as fast as we can and yes, some of the items will be there before, but we cannot guarantee them…so please keep in mind that we do not have 100s of employees shipping your order like Amazon. If you order on Saturday, please do not call on Monday to ask why we have not shipped your order yet. We do not work on Saturday and Sunday. We need to print the orders from the weekend and then sort and fill…this takes time and we Thank you for your patience this time of year when we have a heavy order load.
We cannot hold your orders-meaning you cannot order everyday and then ask us to ship them all at the end of the 12 days to get free shipping. We would then have to go in and refund the $5.99 shipping it adds to every order that you place…we do not have time or the staff to do this, plus when we refund it costs us money in additional credit card fees. If you do not want to pay shipping fees...you can place one order at the end or when you get above the $100 free shipping mark. But also, be aware that some items are limited or hand made and they take time to make or will be out of stock and you will have to wait til we get more in if we can. Each day we place an order for the items plus a few more for those of you who will place an order after they are all revealed…We cannot predict if we are going to sell 10 gold thimble necklaces or 100…make sense?
Also please read the descriptions carefully…there may be additional shipping fees on an item that is hard to ship, like the stitching stools, we have to protect them and they are bulkier…so we add a $5 additional shipping fee to them…but if we say we are waiving that addition fee it doesn’t mean that the $5.99 regular shipping cost is eliminated and the stool shipping is free. Standard Shipping rates still apply….I hope this is clear…or clear-er now.
also some are asking how to find the Thread book we are giving free with $100 purchase on the Valdani Thread Day10. Click here for it.
Thanks you for reading all of that…I know it is hard with no pictures!
Now back to the fun stuff….
We have been waiting to reveal today’s needful thing for a long time….
We have special ordered these 8″x 12″ “Create” project tins…so no one in the world has them but us…it features the flannels from Flannel Gatherings…then we also had a 6″x 10 flannel “precut made just for us for Farmhouse Gatherings too!…then we thought…why not make a project for this tin & pre-cut and add in a some Primitive Gatherings wool for some adorable sheep and this is what we have…
Now…this little quilt with 25 sheep could be cute finished just like it is…but what if we put our creative minds to work and have a “sheep” stitch along and see what happens when we all do our own thing?? So I am know we can make at least 120 sheep from this starter 6″x 10″ precut of flannel and their is a nice left over piece on each of the 42 flannels as well….and then the 3 packs of 10 wool textures in cream, taupe and black (you can get 4 sheep from each 5″ square for 120 sheep)…Don’t want a big project? Make several little ones and so on…let’s all be creative and and “create” something with these adorable sheep!
Everyone who saw this stitched sheep little quilt fell immediately in LOVE with it…but I couldn’t do anything about it until now! So If you want a cool tin, 6″x 10″flannel precut, 30 wool charms, black mill dyed wool for sheep faces and legs plus the pattern, this is perfect for us sheep lovers…
Details….Regular Price: $90.00 plus extra $5.00 shipping. Click HERE to purchase this at our Sale Price: $75.00 plus extra $5.00 shipping
(So here is another example about shipping…we have to add $5 to ship this tin because if we do not protect it…it will arrived damaged…so your order will have $5 plus $5.99 if the order is not over $100….If the order is over $100, we still will apply only the $5 additional shipping for each of this item ordered. Free shipping applies over $100 on normal items that do not have an additional shipping cost applied to them…again..thank you for your understanding…we are not trying to get rich off of shipping…we pay a lot of money for postage…have you tried mailing something from the post office lately? If so… you get it. 🙂
Isn’t it fun to have something no one else has…we sure think so…

For those who want to know a little more about our weekend trip….read on..
Yes…most of you guessed right…we were in Vegas…We had dinner at Hell’s Kitchen…Seen Dwight Yoakum…he was amazing! He talked and sang the history of the Bakersfield Beat music…he did this straight for 3 1/2 hours without taking a break or even a sip of water…he sounded so good…his band was outstanding….go see him if you can….
Brad, Tina and I went on a tour one day to Shelby America, Welderup and Count Kustoms…while Nick played his slot machines with out us bothering him…he is the luckiest thing you ever saw…it’s unreal…he now is a VIP at the Golden Nugget, which is where we stayed this time on Fremont Street….which is cool, but not, because I like to go to a different hotel every time when we go!!! But if you or your hubby wants to know about our tour…. I took lots of pics…let me know…I’ll share…
I also can’t wait to tell you about our party we are having today…wish you all could come…all for now…Lisa
