Guess what’s happening today!
Your books went to the post office today!
The first 145 books have been signed, packaged and addressed and today they are on their way to you!
We have ordered more books and will fill remaining orders when they arrive.
This is the book I’m talking about – Beyond The Battlefield, 14 scrappy Civil War Quilts. Each quilt has the story of a woman who worked “beyond the battlefield” while men were off to war. Our good friend, Tanya, did all the research and writing for this book and for our next book. Here are some of the quilts from the new book.
This last one, Best of All, is the quilt that Connie is teaching on the Stitchin Heaven cruise in April. It’s been remade since I sewed the first one many years ago. This quilt pops up on Pinterest all the time – have you seen it? Pinned it? Now you can get the pattern for this most popular quilt.
The book is available for $31.00 – increase in price reflects the postage rate hike that the post office sprung on all of us, retroactive to January 27. We really should have known this would happen if we published a pre-order price.
So now you know what we’ve been doing during all this brutal weather this week. I didn’t want to say anything just in case we couldn’t get them all ready to ship on this day February 1 because I know you’re anxious to get your book in your hands. The next 144 will go out in a week or so. The first to order are the first to get their book, as it should be.
It’s going to warm up this weekend, or so they say. The bitter cold air just bites at your skin – I’ll be glad for some warmer temps. Remember when I said I’d never trust the Farmers Almanac again because we had 2 weeks in January that were in the 30’s and 40’s? Silly me! I take it all back!
I’ve been looking forward to writing this post! Oh, happy day!
