This was my day in a
I was able to clear out invoice box #7 and get about half-way through invoice box #8 until I couldn’t see straight, needed to eat something, and just needed a break.
So I proceeded down to the studio where the big printer is and began to print those invoices that came in since I left for Houston. Nearly 800 of them. HOLY MOLY!! I know the mystery excitement is increasing! And that makes me SO happy.
Now we’ve got a run on Tri-Recs rulers and Checker is almost out and I’m facing the same thing I was when we ran out of Essential Triangle Tools! There are more on their way, but these orders will be filled in the order that they also came in.
So this post is for those who are newly ordering.
If you also purchased the Essential Triangle Tool or the Addicted to Scraps Book along with your goodies for this year’s mystery you will already have received the Pre-Order info via PDF that came automatically with your purchase. If you haven’t read it, please do.
If you have just ordered something like the Tri-Recs Tools, I am now currently out of stock and trying to get more, but this is also a Pre-Order status thing because I need to get everyone out the door in the order in which they came in since ALL is in house (until we run out!) Please read the Pre-Order info linked in the paragraph above.
When I print your invoice and your mailing label, your order is automatically marked PROCESSING to separate you from those invoices that have NOT been printed yet. Those that haven’t been printed say “Awaiting Processing” Meaning – no invoice or label has been printed and they aren’t in line yet.
At this point I can not guarantee that everything will be delivered BEFORE the mystery starts. I leave next Thursday for an early Thanksgiving/Family Reunion in Utah. Family Comes First. I go straight from Utah to Idaho Falls to teach. I return home the Sunday night before Thanksgiving. I have Monday, Tues, Weds before Thanksgiving to get what else I can out the door. The Friday after Thanksgiving starts the Mystery, so I only really have until next Thursday to do the bulk of this.
The first couple of clues for the Mystery will NOT require specialty rulers in the hopes that gives me more time to get the rest of this out to you.
I received several facebook messages saying “Whoowhoooo! That was fast! I am Processing!” It only means I’ve printed you out, looked you over, and you are still waiting in line.
It will likely be a couple of weeks before these will be shipped due to the volume that is still waiting in front of them. I am going AS FAST AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Please remember I am one person, I have help in the evenings and on the weekends, but I am not Amazon.
I am posting the invoice numbers that have gone out as I empty each invoice box. You can gauge where you are in the line-up by your own invoice number. And again, all I can do is BEG for your patience and let you know we are doing all we can as fast as we can with our little business.
There is beauty off my back deck!
Breathe, Bonnie – Breathe!
And glory in my neighborhood!
This is my favorite tree of all.
And Idaho Square Dance from the Addicted to Scraps book is HOME!
The FedEx guy showed up with this box yesterday afternoon and it just made my day. I had to take a break from order filling to unbox it, and hold it in my arms! It was hung so high up at Market in the C&T booth that I couldn’t even touch it to say hello last weekend. Now, after a YEAR of being gone it is HOME. And it gets to go to Idaho with me for my last teaching gig of the year in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Perfect culmination to this crazy year.
I was going to add more Quilt Market Stuff here, but I think this is as far as I want to go today.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage hexagon quilt found in Houston.
We are living in a time when feelings, opinions and political leanings are coming to a head. Even with my own family I have found it's often better to remain silent for a while instead of joining the debate. Some folks say they can't wait for this week to be over, I have a feeling it's only the beginning. And I don't want to lose friends in the process. No matter what happens, let’s not lose our respect and our love for one another.
Kindness can change the world.
And with that, I’m turning on my happy music, setting the tone for my day and headed back to the dining room table.
Have a great Thursday, everyone!
