They are for us. I am finishing up some projects and starting some new ones....
I sewed on the binding to this oldie, but goodie - the Blue Nantucket
Now it is all ready for visiting grandchildren.
I am planning on a new scrap quilt and have made piles of fabric to audition. I'm pretty happy with these - all Minick and Simpson scraps except for one which is a Cabbages and Roses floral from Moda Fabrics.
My mind is running wild with possibilities.
And now for a little GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS to end the year. First the bad news. We will have to stop all of the download sales in our Etsy store. So today, tomorrow and early on New Years Eve - that will be the end of downloads. All of our patterns will be available in paper patterns mailed to you the old fashioned way after January 1st, 2015. On New Year's Eve I will take the downloads off the site. Until then - it's a SALE!!! If you want to purchase any download -Just use the coupon code - ETSYFAIL. All downloads are 30% off.
Yeah, its ETSYFAIL.
That's because of a convoluted problem facing small business owners, VAT, The European Union, taxes, virtual goods, and places like Etsy - the solution to this problem is NO SOLUTION.
I have no problem paying the taxes I owe. Just tell me how, where and how much. No one is helping, particularly venues like Etsy (which I LOVE, otherwise). C'mon Etsy - try to help us and not hinder us.
Ok, I got that off my chest.
Now for the good news. I have no idea what it is - it's just a feeling that is going around Ann Arbor. A buzz. Some good energy, indeed.
