SPRING FEVER BLOG BINGO – Day Three

Spring Fever Day Three

Good Morning! 

You’ll have to forgive me.  I’m a bit confused.  If I remember correctly the saying says something like, “April showers bring May flowers” …  Hmmm … something is amiss.  It rained yesterday.  It’s supposed to rain today … and tomorrow … and the next day.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the calendar says we’re nearing the end of May … Memorial Day weekend … unofficial beginning of summer?  And last time I checked, I think I lived in sunny northern California … Central Valley to be exact.  Go figure.

Well, I’m happy to report that we don’t have any “rain” on our Bingo game … at least not today!

As a matter of fact, we’re having a party … a Birthday Party of sorts.

As many of you know, here at The Quilt Shoppe, we’re a mom/daughter team … me (Lani) and Amanda!  Tomorrow is is Amanda’s birthday and she wants to share it with you.  And, of course, we women never ever just take one day to celebrate, we make it a week long event.  So we’re starting our little party today and it will go all the way through Sunday.  Now usually the birthday girl gets the gifts, but not this time.  On top of all the great fun we’re having here with our Bingo game, we’re sharing with you an additional 10% off all our regular priced products.  That means all yardage is only $7.19 per yard!  PLUS … every order $50 or more will receive a free fat quarter!

You’ll need to use the coupon code BIRTHDAY at checkout.  And remember, it applies to the original price of merchandise.

BIRTHDAY PARTYAmanda - 1 YEAR OLD!      Amanda - 1st Grade!

Amanda - All grown up and married!
