That's the question of....well, the last two weeks at least! I've got a big ol' pile of newly dyed wool that can explain what I've mostly been doing (for the "Maiden" BOM, Settler's Pride, and some new kits!)....but I swear the hours in a day are just not as long as they used to be!
I'll try and post all the new stuff for the shop here in a bit...a big Valdani floss order came in....so if you are needing any 3 strand balls...there's a good bet I've got them in!
Also, I got back in the 28" x 55" Americana bunting...$22 each. These have a great tea-dyed look and are perfect for your front porch or barn! I was able to only get 6 right now!
We hit the honey hole a couple of times this week and found some really great stuff for the shop...
You know how we love boxes...I wish I had a place to put this! Very early 19th century (1820-1840)wood box..constructed of mill sawn and hand-planed wide white pine boards. It's got great early square nails and tongue & groove joints...This would make a great firewood box by someone's fireplace or out on a covered screen porch! 28" long x 16" wide x 27" tall. $65.00
I love old enamelware and came across two really nice and early pieces! The little berry bucket is just 5" round x 5" tall...heavy enameling and its original lid (which is great!). The condition is beyond exceptional and would make a great addition to a special collection! $125.00
And the other piece is this rare and LARGE coffeepot. Very desirable dark blue & white swirl. Fantastic condition and like I said...HUGE...it'll hold a gallon at least! $145.00
Finally...a really nice market basket...it's got some age on it and it is in really great condition...no breaks or holes...it was dry (age thing, don't you know) so I put my special formula on it...really brought out the patina and the warmth! $36.00
Three bolts of this great green/red/cream civil war fabric from Marcus came back in...I started out with 40 yards...and there is now 7 yards left. (How the heck did that happen??). It'll be in the shop this weekend but I'm not sure how long it's going to last! $7.95 per yard (WOW price $7.15 per yard)
For those girls that have taken my covered box class and are now covering everything in sight...I have "tons" of paper mache boxes in stock at the shop now...plus more coming! Priced from $1-$3 each or graduated sets starting at $6.00. I'll put all the sizes up on our selling blog next week so you can see what I stock and order from there if you need to. I also have a couple of jars of PVA glue from Papersource (the kind I use in the class) in stock right now. $11 per jar (it goes a long way)...shout if you need some.
I've had a lot of girls come in wanting "stash" wool...good colors that will work for lots of things...not huge pieces...and with a great price...
I think I found the answer...nice size pieces for hooking or applique (approx. 6" x 14")and $1.50 each. You pick and choose the colors!
So now it's time for a contest! Name that wool!! I need a name for these cute little rolls...email me your suggestion of a name, and if I use yours...you get 10 of these new little rolls for free!
(Update on the wool name...thank you to all the girls who sent in suggestions on what to name these new wool rolls...we have a winning suggestion! For everyone that participated in the naming...you all get two free rolls for sending me your suggestions!)
