Or Fed Ex Ground as the case may be!
Today is a busy errand running day ---and one of those errands is packing up all the quilts for the next book to send them off for photography!
I wish wish wish I could be there for the photo shoot this time. I was there with the last book, even had some input on how to display things, what might look good where, and when the photo proofs came back, I saw my own suggestions in print….and I was thrilled to be a part of the process.
This year, my schedule has me other places, so I’m putting all my faith in the crew and waiting like a little girl at Christmas time to see what they do for the shoot.
Doesn’t look like much does it? You might even see some you recognize from glimpses over the past year or so. Roll Roll Cotton Boll and Orca Bay are at the top. The others, we’ll leave that to be a guess and a mystery to you!
Best shipping cartons EVER! I get these at Lowes or Home Depot….there are holes in the top for securing with zip-ties. I just put extra zip-ties in the cartons and they can use the same ones to mail back to me. They are waterproof and very tough! Later this afternoon Shamu and I will take a drive to the Fed Ex drop off in Winston.
And then maybe, just maybe I’ll get to finish kitting stuff up to take to Pennsylvania!
Or….shoot. I need to write my post for Yard Sale Saturday coming up on Feb 4th --- This NEXT Saturday! Have you thought about what you want to clear out? Quilt books you don’t want any more, old block sets you are never going to turn into a quilt, bundles of FQs you’ve thrown together and want to sell?
I’d love a heads-up of who wants to participate so I know what to plan on. I have a couple vintage things that need to find new homes, so if you love antique textiles and quilts, don’t forget to come back Saturday.
This is how it works…..I write my post, you write yours –how you collect the funds on what you are selling is up to you. I’m going to go easy and use paypal. Shipping will be determined before I send the final bill, the item does NOT include shipping. When the paypal invoice has been paid, the item ships and we are all happy!
My post will go live at 7am Eastern Time on Saturday morning. You come to my post, add your link to the post you wrote on your blog about what you are selling ((The specific post, NOT just your whole blog address….that isn’t enough)) And we are good to go! If this is something that works for people, we might try it every couple of months or something. I know I have more stuff than I need and I’d love to pass it on for someone else to love :c)
Remember, these are YARD SALE type Quilt-Related items. This is not for new crafts you have made to sell, it is not to sell your favorite pair of jeans that are now too tight, or the food processor you don’t want anymore. QUILT RELATED ((Vintage, UFO, Fabric, Notions, Books, etc)) items is what we are looking for? Got it?
