It’s that week….Thanksgiving is just literally 48 hours away!
Our holiday here at Chez Depre will be a quiet one as Paul has to work and the kids are scattered with plans of their own to spend the day with friends.
We will miss them but I told myself I was going to let them flap their wings and fly in life…knowing when they return home it will be all the more special. And it will be as both are heading home for Christmas. I can hardly wait.
A quiet Thanksgiving might be just what I need as I am hoping you will enjoy the Black Friday/Small Business Saturday special that I have planned.
….and since I am notoriously bad with secrets I will share now…..FREE SHIPPING on everything in the web store for domestic customers only, sorry my foreign friends.
YES! even Castle Wall Acrylic Templates which are currently back in stock! This mania will last just 48 hours from 12:01 am CST on Friday Nov 28th to 11:59pm on Saturday Nov 29th.
I’m going need a breather on Sunday to flip the web store around for the very special offer I have dreamed up with Paper Pieces for Cyber Monday.
And no, I won’t be hinting ….just yet.
But for now I just wish to share what I as a designer am thankful for. It hit me smack in the face this week when Terry Thorne of Maple Park, IL posted this picture on my MDQuilts Facebook page.
Her rendition of my block, in the recently released Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks magazine.
Village Square is a simple block that looks complicated. It’s a perfect block to play with scraps or plan out in set fabrics just playing with color and texture combinations.
I can’t begin to tell you how much joy it brings to me to see your creativity applied to designs I have created or just share. Such as the Castle Wall Block…but that is another blog soon.
When I get a notice of a post of a picture to the Facebook page my heart just sings. This is what I dreamed of as a little girl when I told my aunt I wanted to be the lady that wrote the crochet patterns for Leisure Arts. Truly.
To celebrate my Village Square Block being included in the
Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks! Volume 10 I have two issues to giveaway!
So post a comment here on the blog from now until NOON CST on Thanksgiving telling me the one thing you are most thankful for in your “sewing life”. I will randomly pull the winners and post them for you to see on Thanksgiving night.
I will go first. I am thankful for THREAD in all colors, styles, and sizes. Using the right thread makes life sew much easier!
If you are new to the blog please note your comment may not appear immediately upon posting. I will have to approve you (which I will do several times a day) but once your first comment is approved you are good from then on….and you will want to be as we have just a few short weeks until my 7 Days of Swag giveaway starts on December 15th.
Oh yes there is a lot of typing going on….lol.
