Happy Thursday to all!
We've got two weekends left before we have to close down for a month...of course, that month will FLY by and we'll be back open the first of November...but good night nurse, all the things we have to do between now and then is staggering!
First...we were expecting Jo Morton's new line, "Elizabethtown" to come in this week. Sadly, it will not ship until sometime in October (we hope) now...
Andover's main facility was heavily flooded by the rains from Irene and all of the fabric that was in one main warehouse was ruined...which just happened to be all the doubled and rolled lines, including this one. So Andover is reprinting as quickly as possible and we should have it by the time we re-open in November.
If you haven't had a chance to come and play with the new flannels we recently got in...they are spectacular! And with this cool weather nipping at our heels this weekend..what a perfect time to come and get some!
Judy Condon's new Christmas book, "Holidays at a Country Home", will ship next week! There is a limited supply...so if any of you girls want one for sure...email me and let me know! (If they don't make it in by our last weekend in September, we'll have them for you at the Barn Sale in October or we can ship to you fairly cheaply!) $24.95 for the book, WOW girls get their discount!

NEW PATTERNS FOR THIS WEEKEND...
We received an order of some great wool patterns for this weekend...I'll be working on dying wool tomorrow to get some needed colors back in stock to help make these!
These two are called "Baby Girl Crazy" and "Baby Boy Crazy"...though I will have to say, I saw way more potential in these! Great appliques in both of these patterns...and wouldn't they make the COOLEST hooked rugs?! Pattern price each is $11.95 (WOW price $10.50) Finished actual size is 19" x 26".
"Wool Vine Runner"...$7.95 (WOW price $7.15) You wouldn't have to do this as a bittersweet runner...though I do love it that way! Finished size is 12 1/2" x 36 1/2"
LOVE THIS!(But who doesn't love crows, sunflowers, pumpkins all out of wool?)I'm thinking old army blanket for the background...(I feel a kit in the making!) $7.95 for the pattern (WOW price $7.15)Finished size is 12" x 32"
This pattern we had last year...and I've had MANY requests for kits on this again this year! I promise...this is the season I get plenty made! $7.95 for the pattern (WOW price $7.15) Finished size 8 1/2" x 13 1/2".
Another one of those patterns I love...but I'm seeing this turned into 1/2 dozen great smaller projects! Pattern price $7.95 (WOW price $7.15) Finished size of the wallhanging is 14" x 24".
Another GREAT project from last year...quick and easy to do! $7.95 for the pattern (WOW price $7.15) Finished size of the runner is 16" x 40"...though you could do it just about any size you want!
AND...WE JUST GOT THE TOWLING USED IN THIS PROJECT BACK IN STOCK! $5.95 PER YARD! (WOW price $5.35 per yard) Great for tea-towels, place-mats, runners, etc. It's already 16" wide with finished edges..all you have to do is hem the ends!
For you girls waiting on the chenille trim...FINALLY GOT IT IN! And there is plenty to go around! The undyed natural is $.50 cents a yard...Dyed colors..$1.00 per yard.
A quick note about the emails we send out every week....
A couple of weeks ago my main computer had to go to the Geek squad to be totally reformated. Luckily, all of my files were backed up on Carbonite so we didn't lose any of that! Put oddly, when we put AOL back onto the computer, about 150 email addresses were missing from the shop's address book...which is what we use to send out our weekly email. If you have noticed that you have not received an email from us lately, chances are, your email was one of the missing. If you would like to be put back on the update list, please just email me directly and let me know and we'll get you back on! Sorry for the hassle!
Taking orders until October 1st...
Back in the summer we met an artist from Ohio that makes wonderful outdoor garden bee skeps and skep houses. Many of you bought the bee skeps we brought back from the shop, but we only brought back one house and I kept it. We're hoping to meet up with him again in October and get some of his houses this time. To make sure we get enough of them, we will take orders until October 1st on the house. Below are pictures....the cost is $56.00. Please email me if you are interested!
That's it for this go-round! I'll have to wait for the UPS man now before I can post up anything else new! Of course, you never know what Shawn will find antique wise! He's been out hunting a good part of the week!
Well...Shawn came across two AWESOME pieces today....the bowl will come in with us this weekend, but the miniature pie safe will most likely make its' debut at the Barn Sale we're doing mid-October...
This is the "miniature" pie safe...though it's not all THAT miniature...but a FANTASTIC small size with about a ba-jillion (is that a word?) uses! Although it looks very white...it actually shows quite a bit of its original green paint...with the old coat of white paint on top. (This could be very easily dryscraped more down to its orig. green). 36 1/2 " tall x 35" wide and 15" deep....with 3 shelves behind its original screened doors. VERY HEAVY heart pine with square nail construction...a Johnston County piece for sure and has been here all it's life...dates to about 1870.
$475.00 (If you're interested...just let us know!) (SOLD...it's going to a new home)
Now for the bowl...AWESOME old dough bowl with original grey blue paint. She's a big one...measuring 18 1/2" x 17 1/2 in diameter...did I mention, AWESOME! Great turned rim and foot...dates to about mid 1800's and a great OLD funky repair! (This looks great in my kitchen...so it's only coming in for one weekend.) $250.00
Be sure and come see us if you're out and about! Have a great upcoming COOL weekend!
