Invoices for Eliza Bell Cox SAL go out today

I will be sending invoices all day for the Eliza Bell Cox SAL floss packs and linen.

If you have pre-ordered these items.....please follow through! There is a lot of work involved with putting all of these together.....and if you took the time to pre-order, and I took the time to dye the items for you, I would like you to follow through with your order.

I have had several pre-orders not paid for in the past and even though I hesitated about taking all of these pre-orders....I did take them and dyed the items for you. I thank you for honoring your order with me. I hope all goes smoothly and everyone pays for their orders by Wednesday unless you have made other arrangements with me.
 I will start printing shipping labels tomorrow and packing and then orders will be mailed on Thursday. A few late orders for custom fabrics will go out Friday.

I still have floss packs available. The floss packs for the 39 colors for the Eliza Bell Cox sampler are $31.95 plus postage. Send me an email if you would like a pack. nbelgian@aol.com.
These are 5 yard skeins with 2 colors having 10 yards.

Thank you.

Eliza Bell Cox SAL floss and linen

The floss packs for the 39 colors for the Eliza Bell Cox sampler SAL will be ready on Monday and invoices will go out at that time. Packing and printing shipping labels will be on Tuesday and Wednesday and I hope these are all in the mail by Wednesday.

You can still order these as I dyed extras. I will probably carry them until September unless they all sell out before then.
It is $31.95 for the 39 colors. 5 yards of each color except for two colors that have 10 yards.
The 46ct linen is $20.75 plus postage. You can order just the floss without the linen. 20x25"

Thank you for a great response and a big thank you to Julie from Gulf Coast Stitches who put this all together and asked me to dye the floss and linen.

Have a nice weekend.

Happy Mother's Day!

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Mother's Day!
I am blessed to have my 95 year old Mother still with me. We talk every day and take a walk down memory lane.....which she loves to do.

I am also blessed with a wonderful son and my two grandsons that I have raised for the last 17 years. Such nice young men they have grown to be and we have a wonderful life together. I could not ask for anything more. Life is good!

 I hope each of you have a wonderful day.

All the invoices have gone out today

All of the invoices for all of the clubs have now gone out. IF you did not receive yours please let me know. nbelgian@aol.com
A few do not go through the first time even though it shows that it did on my end.

I will start printing shipping labels and that will take two days. Friday and Saturday are packing days and we need two full days to do this. Unfortunately the 5th falls on Saturday and some of the packages will not go out until Monday and this can't be helped. I have already decided to take 2 days for invoices starting next month, two days for shipping labels and two days for packing. 1st-6th each month. And if the clubs continue to grow I will add a day to each process. These are 12 hour days already and we will add them as needed. Thank you for understanding.


The SAL for Eliza Bell Cox (on Facebook) begins in June. I will be carding that floss all next week for the 39 colors. If you would like to orders yours please let me know. It is $31.95 plus postage. These are 5 yard skeins and two colors have 10 yards. A great bargain.

Nancy

The remaining club invoices go out today

As I had stated, the club invoices are now taking two days to send out. The remaining invoices will go out today. My goodness it is busy around here!! And two more people signed up for the club yesterday. If I continue to get new members it will be necessary to divide this into three days....I will keep you posted  for next month.

Thank you for your patience in getting your invoice.

Club invoices start going out tomorrow

Club invoices will go out tomorrow the 1st and on the 2nd. If you have not received your invoice by Tuesday evening please contact me. It seems like there are always a few invoices that show they went through on my end but they did not.

Next I start printing the shipping labels.....for 540 orders this month! My goodness it is getting busy around here to say the least.

Then we will be packing all the orders for all of the floss and linen clubs and mail them out on the 4th and 5th. All orders should be mailed by the 5th if all goes as planned. Stacks of boxes of floss are ready to go.....bins of packs of 6 skeins are lined up.....bins of linen and aida......quite an assembly line we have going here.

There will be several sets of colors for each club now.....so you may not get the same colors as a friend receives.

Thank you for such a great response to all of the clubs. And a big welcome to the new members and followers. Be sure to sign up for each give-away that I post.

Have a great week.....watch for your invoice.

Thanks again.

The last of the club shipments going out

First I want to say thank you to all of my new followers....a big WELCOME!
And to all of the new club members....who are still signing up every day....thank you very much.

The April club orders got overwhelming with all of the add ons to each order. I had over 60 club shipments with extras added, from singles to boxed sets and full collections. Thank you very much.

It did slow down the linen shipments this week as 42 of those orders had extras added. The last of the linen shipments will go out today and tomorrow. Thank you for your patience!

Now.....I really need to keep club shipments separate from extra orders. No way around it. It will save hours and hours of paper work and expedite the shipments. So starting in May, if you would like extras of any kind they will need to be a separate shipment.

I would like to have all linen and floss orders shipped by the 5th of each month starting in May. Fingers crossed!!!

Thank you one and all. It is my pleasure to do the clubs for you and I appreciate each and every one of you.

Club shipping dates for April

I would like to thank all of you who have joined the floss and the fabric clubs. What a wonderful response I have had. Last month 65 new members to the floss clubs and almost 45  to the fabric club. And I must tell you....this will change the billing and shipping dates for May.

Lets stay in April first. Floss will be going out each day until the 5th. Linen will be processed and go out on the 9th. No way to get around it. I had hoped it would go out on the 5th but it will be the 9th as it has been before.

For May. The invoices took 16 hours to send out this month and I still have new members signing up every day. So invoices will go out on the 1st and the 2nd each month. It takes more than 18 hours to print shipping labels and pack orders so that will be divided into two days, the 3rd and the 4th. The orders will then go out on the 5th and the 6th. Overwhelming but I am pleased with all the new members signing up. I had 5 more sign up yesterday and they even said they would take previous months floss or fabric if I had any since I am sold out of the current month! There are now 9 members in Australia, 6 in Canada, 7 in the UK, and new ones in the Netherlands, Norway, Saudi, South Korea, etc. Thank you all very much!

And a big thank you to all of you on Flosstube talking about my floss and linen and showing your subscribers my products. I appreciate all of you very much for sharing.

I smile when my 95 year old Mother tells me to slow down......try to tell a work-a-holic to slow down......keep trying Mom......it ain't gonna happen any time soon!

Thanks for your patience. All of the orders are being processed as quickly as I can. It's time to hire more help!

Happy Easter!

I wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a very Happy Easter!
Thank you for all of the Easter wishes and blessings you have so generously given me. I am thankful for each and every one of you.


We also have a Birthday Club winner today. For those of you who are new to the blog, I draw one name each month and send a nice gift. Be sure you have send me the month and day of your birthday so we can all help you celebrate. Today the name drawn was Connie Bechtold. Her birthday is on the 4th and we all want to wish her a very Happy Birthday! Please send me an email Connie and give me your address. And to all of you who have a birthday in April we hope it is a special one!

We also have some winners for the Special Editions floss. This is floss that is different from all the other clubs. Special colors dyed each month. I know some of you already receive them. The box of 12 skeins is $29. I draw a name from each club. If you receive 6 skeins in your monthly shipment then I send you 6 skeins of the Special Editions. If you receive 12 skeins then I send 12 skeins.
Then I take your name off the list so other will have a chance for their name to be drawn in the following months. The linen/aida club will also have a winner.
The winners for today are Karen Gieselman, Deborah Bixby and Judith Blount. Congratulations! I will send your floss out with all the shipments over the next few days.

All the invoices for the clubs went out yesterday. We had a few glitches with several on Paypal as usual.....and I think we ironed them all out.
If you did not receive your invoice please let me know and I will resend it for you.
Thank you for subscribing and thank you Faithful Followers of my blog. I hope you enjoy all of this as much as I do. I truly love to share.

Have a wonderful Easter.

We always have several that don't go through the first time...I wish they did...and I thank you for your patience with Paypal.
Please pay your invoice as soon as you can. I know there is a holiday and everyone is very busy and I appreciate you taking the time to pay the invoice. I would like to get all the shipping labels printed on Sunday, again this takes more than 12 hours, and then I can mail packages on Monday and Tuesday. I need to have everything done by the 4th as my company will be arriving on the 5th. As I said in an earlier post, if you can't make the payment by the 4th you will have to wait until the 10th for me to mail your club shipment. Thank you for understanding.

April club shipments

I thought I would post this again for the club members. With Easter being on the 1st this year, when I usually send out the club invoices, I will be sending them out on the 31st. I appreciate your quick payments so I can get your club items shipped out to you. I will be working Easter to pack all of these orders (it takes over 12 hours just to print shipping labels now)  because as I previously mentioned, I have company arriving on the 5th and staying through the 8th. I will not be shipping any items during that time. If I do not receive your payment by the 4th, then your order will go out on the 10th.
I hope to have everyone's payment by the 1st so I can mail your orders on the 2nd. Floss and Linen club shipments will now go out on the same day. Since some of you had floss and linen I didn't want to make you wait until the linen was being shipped on the 9th.

Then in March I will resume the invoices on the 1st and shipping all club orders on the 5th.

THANK YOU for your help in making this go smoothly during the Easter holiday. I appreciate your help. And I hope all of you have a very Happy Easter.

Winner today for Friendship's Love chart pack

We have a winner today for the chart pack with floss to complete Friendship's Love. All the over dyed floss you need to complete this is included.

The lucky winner today is Joke. Congratulations! Please send me an email with your address.

I am super busy with all of the floss clubs each month. Lots of new followers and subscribers, thank you very much.

I am also dyeing all the floss for a stitch-a-long with Julie, the Gulf Coast Stitcher on Flosstube.
She is doing the Eliza Bell Cox Sampler. The floss packs will be available late May and the 46ct linen if you would like that too. Sales are direct through me but you can watch Julie's videos for updates. Pre-order now. nbelgian@aol.com
Floss pack for the 39 colors needed....yes 39.....will be $31.95 plus postage. The silks needed for this sampler were $280! That is why Julie contacted me to do the floss pack. You will need to purchase your own chart. I am just dyeing the DMC matches for the floss and the 46ct Bergen linen in a buttery mottled cream will be $20.75 plus postage. Of course you can just get the floss if you have your own linen. The floss requirements Julie has are for 46ct.

Stay tuned as I will post this again for Julie.

Don't miss tomorrow's post!

Tomorrow, the 1st, is going to be very busy. Make sure you check back to see if you are a winner.

On the 1st of each month I draw a name for the Birthday Club and send a nice present. Make sure you have sent me your month and birthday and make sure you are a follower.

Each club will have a winner on the 1st of each month. They will receive the Special Limited Editions I card for this occasion. If you get 6 skeins a month you will win 6 skeins. If you get 12 skeins each month then you will win 12 skeins. One winner from each club, linen club included. Then I mark you off the list so others have a chance each month.

INVOICES go out tomorrow. This will take all day to send 250+ invoices. If you have not received your invoice by 9 tomorrow night then please send me an email. I know a few of the Paypal requests don't always go through the first time.
Remember that floss will ship out on the 5th. Linen or Aida ships out on the 8th. If you have floss and fabric it will ship out on the 9th.

Nancy
Let me know if you have any questions.

And a very BIG thank you to all of the new followers and club members! I appreciate the Flosstube stitchers who have been talking about my floss and sending me new club members.

46ct Bergen Linen

I love linen...and I wish I had more time to stitch as I would love to stitch something on this new Bergen Linen. The feel of it is luxury....so very nice. I wish I could find it in other counts but my supplier only has 46ct. Excellent quality.

I wanted to show you a few of the samples I just dyed.
My camera never does justice for the linen....but you can see from left to right I did classic heritage sampler colors from light mottled cream to a parchment/yellowed color. I also do these shades on my other count linens by request and for the fabric club.
Then I did a slate (confederate) blue/grey for a customer. Slight mottling and it can be done darker.
The Bergen linen is white so these colors are different if you use a cream base linen. I don't have every count in white.
I thought you might like to see some photos as I have had several requests to show more linen. This linen is available for the club too.
Nancy

New sampler, New pattern, New give-away!

I love to do patterns and this little sampler is one of my favorites. I designed it for a stitching retreat and gave one to each person who attended.
I thought I would give one to the winner of this give-away.
This little sampler fit any 11x14 frame. Hobby Lobby has them for 50% off all the time and you can frame it yourself for $10. I try to do all my samplers to fit stock frames.
Friendship's Love:

God gives a gift between two hearts
That time and grief cannot bend
Friendship's love and caring ways
A bond of love without end

It is charted for dmc and I only use full cross stitches in my designs. This design is 179x127 stitches
finished size is 11.2 x 7.9"

BONUS! I used my over dyed floss to sub for DMC for the charts I gave to the retreat. I have 13 charts left with floss. One I will use for this give-away. The rest are $19 plus postage. The regular chart is $11.99 without floss and I will list it in the ebay store or you can buy direct. All of my charts include pages with color blocks and pages with symbols for you to choose which you like best.

Give-away Rules!!!!
You must be a follower and I do check.
You must post a comment here
Post on your blog, stitching group, Flosstube, Facebook, etc. and get 100 more entries!
Drawing to be March 20th.

I also have a companion sampler of the same size I have previously shown to you. Leave No Tender Word Unsaid. Same size. Fits a stock frame.
Leave no tender word unsaid
Love while life shall last
The mill will never grind again
With the water that is past

Chart is $11.99. I don't have floss for this one, it is also charted for DMC
I need to take a picture of these showing how nice they look in a grouping.

Thanks for stopping by. Good luck to all who enter the give-away.
Remember:
All you can take with you is that which you've given away.

Thank you.

Raspberry Linen

A few gals on flosstube were kind enough to show some of my linen....and I have had lots of questions about colors. I dye limited editions but I also repeat a lot of those colors by request.

I have 16 and 18ct Aida.
Linen in 28, 32, 36 and 40ct.
I will be adding 46ct linen in a week and I will dye some as soon as it arrives and give you a preview.

I was also asked to show pictures of colors as I dye them....last week was Raspberry. Here are a couple photos:
A darker base will result in a deeper color or if I choose to leave the color in the dye longer.
I believe this photo is of the 36ct linen

The linen on the left is a bit darker because it was dyed on a cream linen.
I also dye linen with less mottling for a vintage sampler look. I do a mottled cream and parchment for my own samplers but dye lots of other colors for the club shipments.

Email with any inquiries.  nbelgian@aol.com
Thanks for stopping by.

February SPECIAL Limited Editions

I love the Special Limited Editions I have been doing each month and it seems like you do too. I carded 8 more boxes and they will each include the 2 free skeins! They are $29 plus postage. nbelgian@aol.com Get them before they are all gone.

Floss Club Invoices and payments

I send the floss and linen club invoices out on the 1st and they need to be paid by the 4th (unless you have special arrangements with me) as I mail the floss on the 5th and the linen/aida on the 9th.

It is VERY busy around here packing and printing labels for 200 packages and I really will appreciate all of the payments in on time. To track down a few slow pays takes a while, sending second money requests or emails and I truly don't have the time.

I thank you for your cooperation!

Club invoices go out tomorrow

All of the invoices will go out tomorrow for all of the floss and linen/Aida clubs. Due to the increase in the number of new members it will be an all day process sending out your invoices. IF you have not received your invoice by early evening please send me an email.

There are always a couple Paypal requests that don't seem to go through the first time, even though it says it does on my end. Two went through twice last month because it said it did not go through and try again....and it got sent twice. Just let me know if this happens and I will cancel one.

IF you need to add anything to your order, please do it today and not tomorrow. You can imagine going through all those files and sending invoices for 8 hours is a lengthy process and it goes smoother if you add anything today. I thank you in advance!
Floss is then mailed by the 5th and if you have linen or Aida your order will be mailed by the 9th.

Thank you all who are in the clubs. It is a lot of work but a lot of fun creating all these new colors and fabrics for you. I truly love what I do.....I just wish there were more hours in the day!

Have a great day!

Limited and Primitive Limited Editions

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is what is the difference between Limited Editions and the Primitive Limited Editions. I dye 24 new colors each month (and a couple extra colors), and I try to select the more muted colors for the Primitives. Some months the colors are darker and some have more pastels or spring colors. Winter months I usually do darker colors.
I thought you might like to see a sample picture. These are the colors for the two clubs for February. The top colors are the Limited Editions and the bottom are the Primitives.

I select 6 colors from each group (my choices only) for those of you who receive 6 skeins. If you receive the box of 12 you will get all of the colors shown in that group.

*****With so many people joining the clubs I may run out of some colors and I substitute similar colors for that month. All new colors dyed each month.
I think these colors are darker in the photo than they actually are.....at least by my monitor. I think they are a little lighter. But this will give you an idea of what the colors look like that I dyed.
Next month the Primitives will be lighter colors as we will soon be close to spring colors.

Thanks for stopping by. Remember that invoices will go out on the 1st for all of the clubs. You can still join at any time during the month.
I will post one more reminder tomorrow for invoices.

February Special floss and new pattern preview

I thought I would give you a preview of the February Special Floss I dyed. 12 special colors......I draw a name from each floss club and send these special colors. If you get 12 skeins each month you win 12 skeins. If you get 6 skeins each month you win 6 skeins. A special gift for my club members to show my appreciation.

The club winners will receive the extra skeins shown at the right.  Wild Pumpkin and Mocha Truffles.


I also sell a few of these boxes. (and a few of you have added this to your monthly shipment and you will receive both free skeins)They are $29 and they go quickly if you would like one. The first 10 boxes will receive both free skeins. The next 10 boxes will just receive Wild Pumpkin. nbelgian@aol.com

They include a red Valentine rose, lilacs, pinks, greens, crème, golden amber, leprechaun, etc. A great mix for February.

The club floss is due back tomorrow after being carded. I will try to show a picture this week.

The floss clubs have doubled in size! Thank you all very much...this will be a great year filled with beautiful colors.
Floss has been keeping me very busy as you can imagine. I did have time to re-do one of my older patterns Leave No Tender Word Unsaid. Charted with DMC to make it easy......16 count or 32 count linen like I used , the finished size is 7-1/2 x 10-1/2 and fits a standard 11x14 frame from Hobby Lobby for $10 on sale. I try to do all my charts so they will fit in stock frames to save you money. I have ordered the custom frames and even with a discount it gets pricey.
Leave no tender word unsaid
Love while life shall last
The mill will never grind again
With water that is past

I always do samplers based on beautiful verses.

I need to find the time to frame this and get it hung in my office.  The picture does not do it justice....the fabric is a yellow cream and the lighting does not show it very well. I love the reds, greens, rose and cream I selected....my favorite colors of course! This chart is $11.99 and I include color block charts and symbols so you can use the chart type you prefer.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

What are Special Limited Editions?

I have had a few people ask me what are the Special Limited Editions...and are they the same as the monthly Limited Editions? No, they are different. They are Special! LOL

I dye 12 colors each month for the Primitive (more muted) Limited Editions and 12 for the regular Limited Editions. Simply limited amounts of each color for the floss clubs and get them while you can.

I decided to do some Special Limited Editions this year. Each month, I will dye an additional 12 colors in very limited supply. Usually 10-20 boxes of 12 skeins. And I give an extra free skein with this collection.  

 I thought it would be nice to give these to my club members as I have a drawing on the 1st of each month (if you missed the recent post) and pick one name from each club to receive this special present from me. Because I appreciate all of you! Then I sell the remaining boxes on a first come, first serve basis. I do have a couple club members that have added these to their monthly subscription.
I occasionally will have some extra singles of a few of the colors. They sell out quickly so if you receive a color you really like please contact me right away to see if more is available.

So that should explain the Special Limited Editions for 2018.
I had dyed so many collections last year and I wanted to try something new for all of you. I think it adds to the fun of following my blog and being in the floss or linen/aida clubs. More drawings, more winners = more fun!

I just dyed the Special Limited Editions for February and March...you are going to LOVE them!
January boxed sets are sold out but I have a few singles left.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
