I've said it before and I'll say it again, Fall is definitely my time of the year! To be outside without the risk of sun burning, mosquito bites or sweating, goes a long way with me! I went on a walk with my daughter yesterday and my senses kicked into overdrive! I love the sound of the crunching leaves under my feet and nothing is more fun then a good old leaf pile fight with my daughter! I get the most remarkable pictures of her this time of the year, buried in all those leaves. The colors are such a vibrant display as they change from green to yellow, red, gold and the prettiest flame colored orange you've ever seen. The air is a little crisp and blows a little cool down your neck but a sweatshirt takes care of that. You can smell for miles the pungent smoke of people burning those same leaves that give me so much joy and do you remember how beautiful a full harvest moon is? It starts off so bright of an orange and yellow, it appears to glow as it rises in the sky slowly and looks so big and close to the ground, it feels like you could reach out and touch it! Not to mention hay rides, apple cider, caramel apples and funtastic Halloween, I just love Fall! Yep, you have to enjoy it while you can because it's gone ever so fast and Winter is knocking on the back door just waiting to be asked in. Maybe we can pretend we're not home?!
We said it before and we'll say it again, don't forget our specials are now running for 2 weeks at a time. This way, you have time to really check things out and don't have to rush your order in. So relax, take your time, you now have 2 weeks!
This is the last week of our special on the "Pieces of Eight" book with the View & Do Octagon shape and free candy corn pattern.
Does candy corn bring back sweet memories for you of days gone by? What would you say if I could give you candy corn that has no calories, no carbs and is totally approved by the FDA? Are you curious yet? Well, we've got a sweet deal for you this week with our new bi-weekly special!
You'll be right on target with Kaye's, "Pieces of Eight" book featuring her 8-Sided Bull's-eyes and Fray-Away Appliqué quilts! This book has 16 pages and is packed with 19 different projects! It has complete how-to instructions with color illustrations, tips on accurate centering and layering, perfect mitered bindings along with projects for the pointless people! If you don't care for the raw edge look, not to worry as Kaye features two other finishing options to take care of those edges. Also featured is Kaye's View & Do Octagon shape. With this shape you can easily make 2", 4", 6" and 8" octagons. They come nested one inside the other and remove very easily. Made of hard plastic, these shapes are suitable for rotary cutting. Not only does work with the projects in this book, but you will find them useful for scrap booking and many other crafts! For the next two weeks, you can get these both for $19.95. That's $5 off our retail price and with a deal as good as this, to fray or not to fray, will be your only question!
So now you're probably wondering where the candy corn fits in. Well, when you buy "Pieces of Eight" along with the Octagon shape, both for $19.95, we will also send you the pattern for Kaye's candy corn quilt free. This quilt was featured on program K1701. We also have the video or DVD of that show available to order.
So buy the book and tool at a discounted price and get a sweet treat when we also send you the candy corn pattern for no extra charge.

As some of you already know, we have a new message board. The same great people, same great place to post things, but a little bit different then the one you have always used in the past, so Terrye has given me a tip to pass on.
At the topright of the message board is a link that says: "View posts since last visit". Clicking on this link should make it easier for you to keep track of where you are and what you've already read.
As with anything when it is new, it might seem to be a little strange at first but I promise, within a month, you'll be a pro getting around it. Here is the link.
Chuckles with Kaye
During a consumer show, the vendor in the next booth was doing a demonstration. A gentleman watched for quite a while, then asked, "Do you really need to know anything to be able to do this?"
Unsure of how to answer, she said, "Not really. It is pretty easy."
"Good. I'll be back in a minute." He hurried down the aisle yelling, "Helen I found something you can do."
