Cockscombs & Pomegranates - Block #3 - May
So - We'll be shipping out our BOM blocks the first half of the month. Then maybe you'll at least get them the same month. Imagine - the May block in May!. Cross your fingers.
And we're sending them First Class-Delivery Confirmation which means they will be tracked. Quite a few people had asked for Priority Mail and said that they would be glad to pay it. Priority is tracked but not everyone wants the extra expense and we would have to be at the post office to get the tracking number. Tori will have to take everything and spend about an hour getting all of the tracking numbers for the Delivery Confirmation too but it's about a $1.00 cheaper. It will cost about $2.50 more to send it this way. We'll split the cost - the blocks will only be $23.75. We'll try this and see if it works. The Postmaster at Kidder said it should make things go faster.
And we have someone new cutting the kits - she's just breaking in. Hopefully everything this month should be there. Really, she's just new at cutting. She's been helping with the sewing for a couple of years now and is very OCD about seams and making things meet so we didn't check the kits. Our bad. It should be corrected by now.
Back to the Cabbages & Kings. This is one of the baby starlings we found on the cold concrete by the office door about a week ago. We brought them in to keep them warm and to keep them from being eaten by one of the cats. Then Zoie found a recipe for baby bird food on the internet.........
we mixed it up in Pep's new Vitamix and made baby bird pablum..........
This is Polly with Zoie. They still need their pablum but are fully feathered. It seems we have 2 new pets.
So - the quilt on special this week just has to be Cockscomb and Bird. Regularly $64.95 - this week - until May 10th - only $54.35
