Happy Wednesday

Here we are at Wednesday already.  I sure hope your week has been going well so far and that you've had some stitching time in your days.

Thank you for all the orders with the new Etsy site.  For those of you who ordered the Saltbox Sampler kits - if you have any questions on your kits please pop me an email and I will get right back to you.  

As I sat down to this afternoon to get things listed on the etsy site I realized that I deleted several pictures for some quilts that I had already taken.  So tomorrow I will have Mr. Farmhouse hold up a few quilts and get some pictures so that I can list them.  But you will find a couple of cute projects listed already.  My friend M.E. made up a few samples for the quilt retreat and had a couple of extra kits so I told her I would share them with you.  Her quilt kits come packaged in darling wooden boxes.  She is also the one who makes those wooden quilt hangers a couple of you asked me about.  She will have some ready to share with you in the near future.

As I think I said before - or maybe it was all in my head lol - I'm going to be thinning out things that I just don't use in the nest like I thought I would.  Today I've listed some notions along with wool thread and some Sulky 12 wt thread as well.  The Sulky is great for embroidery and is the same as using 2 strands of floss.  Also you will find some marking pens along with a glue pen.  Next up will be the Valdani 12 wt pearl cotton.  I need a little time to organize that tho.  These are great prices on the above mentioned items.  Wholesale or even a little below that.  I'm trying to make the best use of my space and limit my products to kits only.  So that would be my flash sale today to share with you.  I will also be chatting about it over on Instagram.  If your interested pop on over to my Etsy site - the link is in the upper right hand corner of this blog

That's all I've got today - this is getting later than I thought and I'm a bit behind.  

Until Next Time

Welcome to the Blog

Well if you came here from the newsletter - yahoooo you made it.  This will be the beginning of my blogging for Farmhouse Woolens rather than a newsletter.  I hope that this will be a better way of showing you what's new by sharing pictures in this format as well as easier for you to refer back to if you have any questions.  I will also be starting the transition to an Etsy site rather than a website.  The link to the Etsy site is on the sidebar.   Change is always a little hard to get used to - but in the long run it will be more efficient for everyone and nothing cluttering up your inbox.

Starting next Wednesday there will be a weekly blog post (every Wednesday)  to either show you something new coming up, something new listed on the etsy site as well as a flash sale.  I feel the need to lower some of my inventory and clear out some kits, fabric and wool.  Wednesdays will be the day to check it out and it will be marked as a Flash Sale in the title of the item so there's no confusion on which one it is.  There will be some good deals to be had in all categories but quantities will be limited

So what's new right now at the Farmhouse.  A few kits for Saltbox Sampler

And a couple of sweet bunny projects to help you look forward to spring.  Info for these 3 projects is on the etsy site.

I have some fun kits coming your way over the next few days as I plow through the mess from vending last weekend and get organized to share them with you.  

So until next Wednesday - have a wonderful weekend and I hope it involves needle and thread for at least for a few minutes.  Those few minutes can sure add up.
