Do You Craftsy?

Monday, May 5th, 2014

If you haven’t discovered Craftsy yet…what are you waiting for? It doesn’t cost anything to get a Craftsy account and once you have one you can download patterns (both free and for a cost). You can also take online classes and buy fabric and other items too. Although I can’t see why you would want to buy any “stuff” there when we have such cool things in our store (grin…)

One of my buddies has recently offered a new class on Craftsy – Sandi Blackwell of Square-agonals fame. Sandi has come up with a way to make quilts with a diagonal or on-point setting without all that fussy math. The class includes almost 2 hours of instruction broken into small sections that you can go through at your leisure. During the course you can complete a quick, on-point table runner, a medallion style quilt with a vibrant secondary design and a charming traditional basket quilt set on-point. There is also help finishing the projects with beautiful borders  and tips to add your own style spin using the Square-agonals technique.

Sandi makes it easy to create on-point and diagonal designs so you will have more time to quilt and enjoy your finished projects. It doesn’t get any better than that, does it? Oh, but it does! Sandi has generously offered a discount code so you can get $5.00 off the price of the class. Simply click this link for the discount. You can check out more about the class too before you actually purchase it. Regular price is $29.99 but the discounted price is $24.99.

Can’t wait to see the great quilts you all create using Sandi’s technique. Leave me a comment and we’ll randomly choose one to get a free class with Sandi! You have until Mother’s Day 5/11/14 at noon EST. Ready, set, comment…


Need Glasses?

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Just wanted to share a testimonial. I have no affiliation with this company aside from being a very happy customer.

I wear glasses. The older I get, the stronger they get…sigh… I have always been a good girl and bought my glasses from the eye doctor. Silly me. Our insurance guy recently told us about the company that he gets his glasses from online. Hubby and I were dubious but we forged ahead. Normally we spend $400-$500 a pair at the eye doctor thanks to all the extras we need (progressive, bi-focal, tri-focal…sigh…) This high cost left me with the pair of glasses that I wore every day and no backups. I was envious whenever I saw someone with a wild color or funky glasses.

So I decided that the pair I ordered would be my backup pair and I would choose a funky color. I was sure they couldn’t get the prescription right and didn’t have much faith. How wrong I was – I LOVE my new glasses. They are now my everyday glasses.

They even have Purple Moose emblazened on the side. How cool is that? The best part is hubby and I each got a pair (with all the “extras”) and it only cost about $140 total, for two pair. This included a special they were running at the time. They have all green glasses on sale this month…I’m thinking I need a lime green pair.

So if you wear glasses I highly recommend you check out Zenni Optical at , you won’t be disappointed. You can even upload a head shot of yourself and “try on” the glasses on your own face. It’s pretty cool.  Have fun! And yes, the temperature is in the negatives today and I’m wearing my furry hat.
