About 500 of you should be receiving your book orders in the next few days if you haven’t already--That is the number of books I have sent out "on the secret" so far!
I have spent much of each day since Tuesday printing invoices and mailing labels, signing books and stuffing mailing envelopes and boxes, shipping globally!
I kept this secret under my hat since arriving home on Monday because I wanted just a few quiet productive days, and to surprise as many of you with an early book delivery as I could before the word got out ---
By last evening I was reading on Facebook from excited quilters posting pictures of their new arrivals and I knew it was time – that
I am very excited about this beautiful new book…the photography is terrific, the editorial staff did a fabulous job on an exciting layout and, oh I know you are going to love it as much as I do!
30 cases on my driveway when I arrived home Monday evening!
30 cases and mailing envelopes lining one wall of my living room!
My goal has been to stuff envelopes until it’s time to run to the post office before they close ---any time after that 4:30pm drop off is MY time for the evening, and that is when I’ve been working on the pieced backing for Wonky Wishes. I’ve been sleeping like a log, and up and back at the mail order the next morning as soon as the morning blog post is out ----
Yesterday my post office closed at noon, and I decided that I needed a WEEKEND…so the Hubster and I drove in the rain to the cabin for a day and a half of respite ---To really get AWAY from work and have a weekend, I needed to leave the untouched cases of books where they were until Monday morning!
Where are my mountains?
Foggy, rainy, cold, windy and miserable. Perfect for holing up!
That roll by the machine?
That is the columns for the backing I’ve been piecing. Today I lay them out and stitch them together…..we will be heading home after dinner tonight.
Up here in our little mountain community of Buck Mountain, they do a “Last Saturday Buck Mountain Night Out” where residents can head to a designated local eatery and enjoy a meal together and get to know our neighbors. Last night was the first time we had the opportunity to be here on a Last Saturday of the month – and we went! What a fun time. We had such a great time that after dinner, several of us headed to a local sports bar where there was a DJ and continued the party ---
I completely missed doing an evening blog post! Imagine that!
We do agree that us old folks require a bit of early to bed ((And I was tired from order filling!)) and we were home by 11pm ----and I am so excited. I’ve made new friends! That feels good.
SO needless to say, there will not be Quilt-Cam this afternoon. I was hijacked away. ((I didn’t fight it)) I am thinking Wednesday Evening at 9pm Eastern will work for this week…..
It will take me at least Monday and Tuesday to get the rest of the pre-orders out the door. Wednesday should be good for it --
