.....I've given you a couple of months to use up ALL your stash and you should now be ready for a little retail therapy!!
Before I proceed, I must thank you all most sincerely, for your patience and understanding, your messages, friendship and support for our family since Bruce passed away. It has been deeply appreciated. There are still a few things to sort out at this end, the water situation is in progress but will still mean a bit of juggling over the next few weeks.
However, it's July and that is The Silver Thimble's birthday month which means SALE time and we can't miss out on that, can we? So.....Tuesday is the day!! The doors will re-open with lots of bargains to be had. I have been in there this past week sorting things out and hopefully, I'm ready for the onslaught! There are well over 100 bolts at $10 a metre, half price patterns, $2.50 FQ's and 20% of everything else, storewide.
Lots of colours, quite a few "ranges", several novelties, ALL Asian style (Japanese), ALL Christmas fabrics, just $10 a metre (half metre min cut) and their FQ's that are cut, just $2.50.
The TOP drawer are ALL $2.50 each, the remaining FQ's are just $4.50 each.
The SALE will run for a few weeks and Loyalty cards will not operate during this period.
Backings and wadding are included in the 20% off!
Despite the fact that I haven't been in the shop, I have been pretty busy over the last couple of months. It's been nice to have a good session in the garden, cleaning up areas that have been calling out for years! I'm totally over the cold weather I might add, and can't wait for a bit of warmth to see the fruits of my endeavours and a bit of growth! My cupboards throughout the house are a whole lot emptier and tidier and that feels good - all the more room to stash more items. Isn't it true, that the more room you have, the more rubbish you keep! I now need to have that sort of cleanout in the back room of the shop, but goodness knows when that may happen!!
The recent school holidays were extra busy with the 7 grandchildren home here for the first week - just wonderful! The second week was full on mustering, branding, weaning etc. so William and Kelly were here as well. The kids insist on sleeping on the loungeroom floor (which I must say was the warmest place!) and it was wall to wall mattresses for those two weeks.
The weaners were taken out just yesterday and here's our youngest one Declan (7) ready for action. Now riding all by himself, no lead rope!
Today was Harrison's 11th birthday and was celebrated with family at his Nan and Pop's place in Jericho. The Melbourne Storm cake was requested after I had made a Broncos cake for Lachlan last month.
My cake decorating skills are a bit lacking, but the kids think they're "awesome" and that's all that matters!
Hope to see you all in the coming weeks - be kind to me, my calculating brain has gone clean out the window and may take some time to come to terms with "how much do I need for a backing" when I don't even know the size of the quilt yet!!
Talk soon, Sandy.
