String Fling is HERE!! ((Give-Away!))




***NOTICE!!*** This drawing has ENDED. The Winners have been notified!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I pulled into the driveway after lunch --- and guess who followed me?! Well, that is – followed me to the TOP of the driveway, because getting down the drive way is one thing, but if you are a big truck and you have to back out --- just take it from me, it’s best to park at the TOP of the drive and wheel stuff down.

At first --- I was holding my breath to see if Mr Brown went to my neighbors --- but no…he said “Ma’am, are you Mizz Hunter? We’ve got 21 cases of something for you.”

YES! That’s ME!! I was trying not to squeal and dance and hug him ----I explained that these are my new books and I’ve got over 500 people anxiously awaiting them ---he said. “Looks like you will be BUSY then! Where do you want them”

I told him….on the front porch ---

And I watched him as he opened the back….


This is a LOT of boxes!

I wondered how many trips it would take to get 21 boxes to my front porch ----

He has TWELVE cases on this hand truck! They weigh about 35 lbs per box…that’s a LOT of weight on that hand truck.

This is the top of my driveway. Chloe is watching the action! It doesn’t look that steep in the picture, but believe me…he was pulling BACK against that hand truck as he was going down hill!

All the boxes are stacked right next to my dining room….

YAY!!!! The cover looks so great, and wait until you see the inside!

I dropped everything. I mean EVERYTHING --- it was 2pm, and my local post office closes at 4:30pm. How many orders can one girl fill in 2 hours?

About THIS many!

And about THIS many going international!

Close to 60 orders went out today. I’m packed and ready to go to Vermont, so will be spending this evening filling orders until bed time. I have to leave for the airport at 4:15am, so bedtime will come early. DH will get tonight’s orders to the post office tomorrow. I will get home from Vermont on Monday evening. I’ll have Tuesday to get whatever else done that I can. I leave for Idaho on Wednesday, the 4th of July. DH will mail that batch after the 4th of July.

I was seriously thinking of having books shipped up to Oregon and filling them on my retreat week – but you know what? I’m just not. I have to use that time to work on the Mystery quilt, or it won’t be ready for November. So please be patient with me. More book orders will be filled upon my return from Oregon. I get home Monday, July 16th. I wasn’t expecting the books to be here until then anyway --- so anything that is going out before then is going early.

I’m sending them in the order that they were received. And I’ll get them done as fast as I can get them done.

And because I am SO SO SO SO SO SO Excited ---guess what! We are doing a STRING FLING GIVE-AWAY!

Leave a comment here, and I’ll draw for two winners on Sunday Night. That way I can mail them when I get home from Vermont.

Spread the word, share the blog with your email lists, your twitter, facebook, yahoogroups, newsgroups and boards and anywhere that quilters gather…..

Let the fun begin!

  2. I am never lucky enough to be the first to post. Maybe this means I will be lucky enough to receive one of these two books. Fingers are crossed. String quilts are my favorite and I love the way incorporate the strings into the quilt design.

  21. Growing up in rural north Florida I awaited eagerly each day for the mailman to come. Even though there was almost never anything for me, it was always exciting to think of the possibilities. So I can feel your excitement on having the new book arrive - and before you left! Can you imagine if they came while you were gone? How antsy would that have made you?

    Would love to have a copy.

  65. I have my OrcaBay and Roll, Roll Cotton Boll tops done, I have the Turkey Tracks pattern in the 100 designs magazine and I'm about half way done with the srings for Jamestown Landing. (I stared at those pics from the Australian mag. until I recreated the pattern).

    And I have ordered this book but boy would I love a second one. Every time I get one of your books I end up having to buy 2 or 3 because my mom and daughter have them at their house. I don’t look at my pattern books often - but when I feel down, I love to just flip thru them and plot my next UFO. :)

    Sooooo, enter me into the give-a-way! I might only have to buy 1 more for a Christmas present. Heee heee….

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh, that is so great - I can't wait to get my copy - are you bringing any to Vermont with you? (I would love to buy one from you there, but if not, will order one online next week when I come back from VT).

    I would love to win your book, I have 2 already (one signed by you when you were in Jax FL ). Love them, I'll be getting this one anyway if I don't win. I'm waiting on my car getting fixed so I can continue on to my parents, your blog has helped my patience from being stranded. Dawn from GA adchamp@tds.net

    Happy Hexies,

  174. Many years ago when I found your blog I was so impressed with your patterns and your generosity for sharing them free on the internet. At that time I remember thinking that you should write a book. I am so glad that you did and that you have had the success that you have. You introduced me to the world of scrap quilting and I haven't gone back since!

    I have already pre ordered my book but I would love to "gift" one to my sister in law. She's on a fixed income and I know she would embrace being able to use strings. And I just KNOW my book was in that first stack that got mailed (wink wink) alaskajoyrn@yahoo.com
