Advent Calendars

Hello all,

yep, your eyes are not betraying you, it's almost CHRISTMAS. I have just finished 4 Advent Calendars and have listed them in the shop. Last year I was quite late in finishing my advent calendars and they sold like hotcakes, and this years' calendars are even nicer than last years'. But as most of them might go to the US I have to take into consideration that they take up to 3 weeks to arrive and obviously they need to be there in time for the 1st of December. I have listed them now and the listings will expire on 25 December, so perfect timing really.

What do you think? Do you like them? Have you started early in planning for the holidays or working on holiday related items?

Personalisation for quilts

Hello all,

I have promised this for some time and finally got around relisting the personalisation option for all quilts in the Etsy shop. I used to have it when I still appliqueed by hand but am now listing it as a machine applique personalisation. I have had to do quite a few for customers but also friends and family and I hope it will be popular.

Love, Nadine

Scraps Giveaway

Hello all,

It's time for a little Giveaway. I have put together 3 bags of scraps in many sizes, from small squares to larger pieces and even some pieces that are already sewn together. In total this would probably make about 2 quilts. One bag is mainly greens, blues and yellows. The second bag is browns and beige fabrics and the last bag is a mixture of all sorts of colors and styles.

To win these scraps just leave a comment telling me what's your favorite fabric collection at the moment.

I will draw a winner on Wednesday.

Lots of love and happy crafting.

Free Plushie with every quilt

Hello everyone,

oh I do apologize for the prolonged silence, it has been frantic and we still do not know what is happening with the house. The seller is being a b**** and is not making any commitments at all. We have no idea whether we can buy the house or not and if so when we can move in. And we have already invested so much money in it, the surveys and the solicitors, this is money we won't get back. We have also been decluttering and trying to get things in order. We are also so so soooooooo frugal eating just dried foods from the cupboard in order to save money and make some room. It is all very frustrating.

And in order to make some more room I have decided to give away a FREE Plushie with every sold quilt.

So if you are thinking of buying a quilt for someone or you think you might need one later on in the year, well do it now while you get a free plushie with the quilt. I do not know how long I will keep this offer on.

So here is a little reminder of some of the plushies I have. I hope you like them.

Best wishes and please keep your fingers crossed for us, we were really looking forward to finally owning our own (albeit very small) home.

Love, Nadine
