And Speaking of Amoretti…

….Bekah has a post up over on Desiring God called the “Nowness of Obedience.”

Coupons and Giveaways!

Howdy everyone! The time has come (the Walrus said) to harass you about Amoretti.

If you’re needing a fun summer dress for your daughter, granddaughter, niece, piano student, or neighborhood gang leader . . . now’s your moment. And when I say that now is the moment – I mean it. Many of the items are either sold out, or very nearly. So if you want one, grab it fast! For instance – this little number:I have one left. In a size 5. And that’s all. Sad but true. Size 5 anyone?

Fabric Giveaway!

If anyone out there is feeling inclined to add to their fabric stash, I’m giving away 2 1/2 yards of my fabric over at the Amoretti blog! (Come on – you know you want to sew something . . . . )

Stocking Stuffer Idea!

I’m just throwing this out there . . . but here is a fun, cheap, easy, and generally awesome little boy gift. Since it’s a download, you can print out as many as you want, as many times as you want. Stick some in your son’s stocking, tie some on top of the new book for your nephew, give a set to the little boy you babysit . . . you get the idea. All you have to do is download, print on sticker paper like this, slice them apart, and you’re done. Easy peasy! Here’s all the info right here. (Pairs well with The Dragon’s Tooth which I’m sure you’re getting for lots of people on your list, right?!)

Advent Calendar Giveaway!

So if you need an awesome advent calendar, make sure to pop over to the Amoretti blog to enter for a giveaway!

Patterns! And Free Shipping! And Exclamation Marks!

I would like to just take a moment to peel myself up off the floor, mop my brow, and say, “Sheesh! What a summer that was!” If today was June 9th, I’d be just about right on schedule with everything I’m supposed to be getting done. On the other hand, it’s not June 9th, my kitchen floor needs to be mopped because I have cinnamon sugar stuck to the bottom of my feet, my kids’ rooms need to be organized, and if you thought that this was a lot of laundry let’s just say that as I look at that picture I think to myself how nice it would be to have all the dirty laundry in one place rather than tucked into nooks and crannies all over the house and scattered hither and thither upon floors.

On the other hand, I’m pretty much ready to pop the champagne . . . because after a long and ridiculous saga, all my garment patterns are written, illustrated, printed, assembled, and shipped! (Thank you to all you lovely pre-order people for your patience! If you didn’t receive your patterns today they should be there in the next day or two.) So at least one item on my to-do list has been officially checked off. It also makes me realize that I don’t think I ever showed you the video that we took to Market in May. (Or did I? It’s all a blur . . . )

Anyway, there you go. And while I’m at it, why not give you a whole slug and a half of pictures? Also, did I mention that for the next week you can get FREE SHIPPING on your entire order?!?!

This is the Duchess Skirt pattern. It takes 3 1/3 yards of fabric, and it was just featured in the latest issue of American Quilt Retailer. So that’s fun. The pattern covers women’s sizes 4-14. Continue reading ‘Patterns! And Free Shipping! And Exclamation Marks!’
