Primitive Gatherings Orders

Hey Everyone…just a couple of things to keep you informed…

Due to the recent shut down of non-essential business in our State of Wisconsin we have been operating at very limited basis.  We are taking the best measures we can to keep our employees safe as well as our families.  Our store is closed to the public but our website is up and still accepting orders.  We will do everything in our power to get you your Bunny, Tulip kits & patterns out to you.  However, please know that our shipping dept. is now 1 person. She is amazing and can get large amounts out in day, but out of stock items will hold up shipping.

We SO appreciate that you are still placing orders but please keep in mind that if you order things that we do not produce, like other designers patterns we might not be able to get them out in a timely manner.  If you choose to buy Primitive Gatherings kits, patterns, wools that we will able to do with more success. 

We had a ton of pillow forms purchased, way more than we and the pillow supplier had in stock.  We will ship your kits and then ship your pillow forms separately when they come in, the first week in April.  This will basically cost us more to ship twice, but we do not want to hold a bunny kit order.  We want you to be able to stitch it and have it ready to enjoy this Spring.  The pillow forms are out of stock now on the website, however if you want one you can order it…just know it will take longer than usual.

Luckily, we have one wool dyer still working because she works from home and if we have to put kits together that will be a skeleton crew as well…so I guess I am just saying we will operate the best we can in the situation as it is.

Thank you so much for all the Bunny & Tulip Orders!  We did have a nice stock of them when we put them up on the website and I know Jess stated 100 orders went out yesterday…

Our phone rings off the hook…so please keep in mind we are not always there now to answer it.  If you have an important question please email us.

The shops email is primitivegatheringsquiltshop@yahoo.com   This will also probably be answered from a home office and if you are just wondering when your order will arrive, that may not be possible to answer.  So I guess what I am stating here is please, please, please have extra patience at this time…If we are answering phone calls and emails….we are not making kits and shipping.

I am trying to avoid shutting down the website all together.  If we do not have too many upset people calling I will keep it up…So please be kind and know we are doing the best we can with what we have…

I am looking forward to making some masks…I have some elastic and lots of fabric to choose from.

Please stay safe, however that looks for you…and again..I can’t say how much we appreciate you placing orders at this critical time.  I will keep posting as long as I don’t run out of things to do/say… Look for another Free piecing pattern next…tomorrow is Friday Give-Away Day!

How to Make Shamrock Slime, instructions featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Lisa Bongean

Weekend fun: How to Make Shamrock Slime

I have been working on lots of deadlines lately and I am pretty happy with where I am so it was time for some fun with the Grand babies!  I called Lauren and asked her if she wanted a day to herself (since Jake was at Pigeon Forge Quilt Show) and I would take the boys… well… Jace informed her, he didn’t think Owie coming to MiMi’s was a good idea…lol – Lauren agreed he needed some alone time away…

It was time to make something off my Grandma Stuff- Pinterest board! Click and like/follow and pin from mine!  Even if you are not a Grandmother you never know.. .well maybe some of you know, but you can adopt some Grand babies if you will not be a blood Grandma!

How to Make Shamrock Slime:

We decided last time we were together that the next time we were going to make slime Click …Here for the recipe I used and for the most part it turned out great…It came from Amy, from As The Bunny Hops’s blog.How to Make Shamrock Slime, instructions featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Lisa Bongean

Papa went and picked Jace up and as soon as he arrived he wanted to go shopping for our supplies… We picked up the shamrock slime ingredients:

Elmers Washable Glue

jars of glitter

Borax.

Jace was very sure about what color glitter he liked and didn’t like for his shamrock slime…

He had some to take home and then left some here when he comes back… Papa took our picture so we have a remembrance photo…

So here are a few tips I can give you…

Tips for Making Shamrock Slime:

It was pretty easy…

I would clean each bowl after each use… I didn’t and the first batch turned out the best… so I would have a clean bowl to start each batch.

Be prepared to have glitter everywhere even though you think you can control it…

Wear an apron or old T-shirts… the glue washes out, but I found some on my jeans the next day and when sorting the wash I noticed I got a lot on my T-shirt…

Save some plastic containers to put the finished shamrock slime in… Small clear plastic ones like you get from the deli would be great…

He is such a ham….

Next time I am going to get the…glitter glue

After Slime time… it was Lego time…. Jace just recently returned home from a week in Arizona visiting his Nana & Grumpy…. so I bought him an airport lego… which he easily put together without any help…How to Make Shamrock Slime, instructions featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Lisa Bongean

Then we had to go upstairs and organize ALL his Legos by color…”we” is actually me.  While he was building a whole airport (he has another bigger plane), he informed me the small airplane goes to Chicago and the big airplane goes to Arizona over the mountains!  LOL!!!… too smart…I was 19 before I got my first plane ride!

I hope you enjoyed hanging out with Jace and I… I know some of you will never get to do Grandma/Grandpa stuff like this…s o that is why I am sharing my time with him with you!

All for now… back to stitching…
