Free shipping until 31 May

I think the part about getting old, that hurts the most, are my hand joints. It's kind of weird, I can still type, tie my shoes...but it's getting harder to quilt by hand or embroider. I'm struggling through some embroidery for a friend. It's a matter of finish it. I'm getting there, it's just not the fastest I wish I could go, but it'll do for now.                                                                      
My chooks are growing, getting feathers, learning from the mama chooks. I might have to slip a few "big girl" eggs under the little hens the next time they decide to nest, lol! Almost makes me wish I had a few duck eggs.         
The free shipping is going well, now is the time to splurge. I saved a young lady in Australia $40+ in shipping. Just type in:


in the coupon code box during your checkout. I do have 27 different Sherbet Pips fabrics available. Some of the bolts are becoming thin so don't procrastinate to long. Thank you for supporting my shop.

Now, back to my project...Elaine

Free shipping to the end of the month...includes International

Today is my daughters birthday....where has the last 37 years gone? I will be punished if I reveal her age, I'll try to be gentle. So, anyhoo, in her honor I have decided to not only extend free shipping for the rest of the month...but to also extend it to include International sales too.

Yep, free International shipping!! Go figure, now, before I realize what I have done, lol, go check out my shop. Just be sure to enter the coupon code in the check out section of my shop....type in:


have fun sewing.....Elaine

Free shipping continues, and...

I received an inquiry about International shipping and realized this might be a problem. I would love to offer 50% shipping for International. If the shipping is 12 bucks, I pay 6, you pay 6. If you are from Australia, for example,  please DO NOT USE COUPON. When you make your purchase, check out, send me an email and I will refund 1/2 of your shipping. Fair enough ladies?

I also got this in an email, had to share:

Shampoo Warning:
I figured out why I have been gaining weight.  The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my body says…“for more volume & extra body".
So now, I am going to switch to Dawn dish washing liquid.
It says..."dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove".
......So glad I figured this all out!

 Happy day...

Free shipping for the week

I hope everyone had a memorable Mothers Day, I sure did. Earthmama made shrimp fettuccine for me. My son has been dabbling in making his own beer and we shared a glass of a rather stout home made beer. Then I shared my dinner with my grand daughter rounding out a perfect day....then came home forgetting my gorgeous tulips they had bought for me for Mothers Day!

Sometimes you just have to sleep where you can.

I haven't done any sewing lately, some handwork is all. It went from winter to spring and now it's summer here. We had to turn the ac on last night. I hope we get more rain but please Lord, don't let the Mississippi river flood Memphis!

Our last batch of bantam chicks turned out to be 5 hens and a rather colorful rooster. I think some critter ate 2 of the hens, so now we are down to 3 hens, 1 rooster. I never have the camera when I see them running around. They aren't too social.

Our little gray bantam chicken hatched 9 babies....3 of them resemble chipmunks and 6 black ones. They arrived here on Good Friday, but are all in the "nursery" with mom. I still haven't figured out how she can get them all under her!

I received several cases from Moda, o m goodness, and need to finish putting them in my etsy shop. If you read my can have free shipping until next Sunday! Just go to my etsy shop, make your selection and the type in:

in the coupon code box in the check out area! Be sure to tell your friends. I just received the full line of Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey, new charm packs of Hoopla, Modern Workshop. I also received jelly rolls, layer cakes and charms for the Wee Folks line, by Ingrid. What is it about those gnomes? Love em.

Don't forget the free shipping for the rest of the week!

Later, Elaine
