Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas to you and your family during this season of celebrating our Lord's birth.  The weather has been great and the gas prices are down below $2.00 here in Missouri.  Everyone in my house is healthy and I have a lot to be thankful for.  

I plan to spend a few days enjoying my family, kids and grand kids.  My newest grandson is due next week and we are thankful for the six healthy grandchildren that we currently have.  We have a few things planned for the family gatherings and it all involves lots of food!  I am up early to do some baking before the festivities start this afternoon.  Tomorrow's festivities start earlier with our traditional egg casserole and sausage gravy breakfast.  

Thanks to Pinterest, I have added a lot of interesting items to my list of culinary delights this year. I just love looking at Pinterest, in fact, I spend more time on there each day than I do reading the news or Facebook anymore.  I love looking at do-it-yourself projects along with the recipes.   

If you want to follow me on Pinterest, I am listed under prairiegrovegrl.

I will list new fabric bundles and quilts in my Etsy Store after the Christmas holiday season.  Due to the new EU VAT Tax regulations, I am no longer going to sell outside of the United States, however, my patterns are still available through Quilter's Warehouse.

Merry Christmas!

No More Facebook

I guess my Prairie Grove Peddler Facebook page got hacked and no longer exists so I am not going back on there and starting over.  If you hear anything from it, let me know and just know that it's not me.  
Thank you to everyone who followed me!

Meanwhile, I continue to keep selling quilts, cross stitch and supplies on Etsy and Ebay.

Merry Christmas!

December News

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.  We just put up our tree even though it is not decorated yet.  I'll do the lights tomorrow and probably start dipping into the boxes of decorations. I am working on some table runners and hope to have them finished and out on display soon.  Somehow I completely lost my November.  I think I must have blinked and it just disappeared.  Honestly, doesn't it seem like life just flies by sometimes?

We got the garden knocked down and ready for winter.  The leaves are finally gone from the yard and the gutter.  My husband has been busy doing lots of remodeling projects this fall.  Not only have we sold everything we don't use anymore around our property but we cleaned up what we are keeping.  We completely emptied our shop, gutted it and redid all the electric, insulation and drywall. Now it's an extra double garage. I'm sure we will find plenty of things to put back in there once it's all painted.

I have been going through tubs and tubs of goodies leftover from 20 years of retail quilt shows and I have been finding lots of fun stuff to list for sale.  I'm not planning on going to any more retail shows as a vendor so it's time to move it all out.  I still have lots of different flosses, pearl cottons, sewing notions and fabrics to sell on eBay.  I'm not retiring yet but certainly planning ahead.

I have a pattern special on my website this month.  It's the end of the year special this year.  You can get 25% off all orders of $20.00 or more.  It includes all of the patterns and pattern/ button combos on the website.  Just use Coupon Code PGP2014 when you check out.

I have been selling a lot of quilts through my Etsy store and Ebay.  My eBay seller name is patternhutch.  I have the last of them listed on Etsy right now if you know anyone needing a special gift for Christmas.  I may start posting more specials on my Facebook page so check it out.
