Crank down the Air Conditioning...the flannels have arrived! (updated Friday morning)

(51 Flannels to be exact!)

Happy Thursday to all!

I've got so much to put on the blog this week that I don't know where to start! Here it is Thursday already and I've been bogged down since last Friday by medicine that is creating havoc with me in general and now I've got one of those Halter monitors that I can't rip off until tomorrow afternoon! (Pain in the @#%^&! #1)

I finally was able to pick up my "big" computer on Monday...but half of the programs are now gone and I'm having to either download programs or buy new ones so that I can atually open some of my files and get something done!! (Pain in the @#%^&! #2)

I'm "test driving" these pictures to see how the color is going to come bear with me while I pinch and tweak this computer!

Here are pictures of the new Marcus Brothers flannels called "Primo Plaids"! 11 plaids in all...wonderfully woven and soft...the same on both sides...FANTASTIC for those quick rag quilts! Price per yard is $ price is $7.65! I've already got fat quarter bundles cut along with some 1/2 yard bundles and individual fat quarters as well!

If the colors look a little sharp and harsh on your me...they're not! These guys are like that old favorite flannel shirt...soft, muted and just begging to be wrapped around ya!

Our other line of flannels that came in are the "Woolen Needle" flannels by Primitive Gatherings for Moda fabrics...40 bolts in this line and every one of them is a keeper for sure! Deep rich colors...stripes, plaids, checks and textures...that all look like wool without the cost. These will make great log cabin throws, backgrounds for wool applique and backings for wool projects...just to name a few things! This fabric is suppose to retail for $12.00 per yard. Our price is $10.50 per yard and WOW members get their discount to boot! I'll try and get these all on our selling site in the next day or so! (But for you girls that live just need to come in and touch and feel!)
