On the 3rd Day of Christmas

NOTE: If you are relying on an automated feed email program to receive these blog notifications, you are probably a day behind the sale we are having. Often those automated emails do not come until 24 hours after the initial post. If you want to follow along on the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE you should do it via our newsletter or facebook which will both post in actual time. Thank you so much for playing along with us.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 3 French Hens. 

Well if you follow my blog at all you will probably already know my chicken saga. Or the lack of my chickens saga so I won't bore you with the sad details of the fact that it is just not practical to have chickens in my garden, with our lives and schedules. So sad. So I live vicariously through those who have them. These were some of my favorite eggs that we have received recently…

Julia's eggs

I wonder what French Hens' eggs might look like…

But since we can't have French Hens, we do have some lovely Christmas Lollies kits today.

Back by popular demand, these were one of our hottest sellers last year so we thought we would offer them again but a tiny bit different this time around. A lovely combo of reds, greens and creams topped off with two cream prints as the outer borders make for a classic quilt that you will want to display every year around this time…








 … If you haven't already worked on one of our "LOLLIPOP" quilts, you will not believe how straightforward and simple this method of making Dresden Plate blocks is. REALLY! If you haven't already you can learn how to make it in my Craftsy class [classes are on sale right now, click HERE for more info] or follow the step by step directions in the pattern. You will fall in love with Dresdens. You really will!


As well as some sweet little SNAIL TAPE MEASURES in 3 different colors…


… the tape measures are 40" and are cute little additions to a stocking or a travelling sewing kit.




AND FOR THE SPECIAL OFFER OF THE DAY:   Our mini Thread LIFESAVERS pattern. Using another quick technique without any templates or special methods, these blocks are constructed with simple pinwheels and a couple turn and flip circles!


Please do not add this free product into your order [you will be charged for it as a standard order if you do], we will automatically add it to any order that is placed on the day of the special offer.

The elves are hard at work so come back tomorrow on Sunday for new goodies on the 3RD day of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE!

• The Fig Tree 12 Days of Christmas sale starts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and lasts for 12 days [perhaps with a Sunday off here or there].  


• Each day a different kit, stocking stuffer or home dec goodie will be advertised- on some days one of each! Each day a special offer will be made as well.  


• Each special offer will only become available on that one day. Each goodie will only be available while stock lasts. Many of the items offered will sell out on that day, some will last a few days. We apologize ahead of time if you are not able to get the goodies you were hoping for. Just like any other "black friday" kind of sale, we just sell out of stuff!


• We never know which ones will sell out the fastest! If we are able to get more in stock of any popular product, we will try but we can't guarantee that anything that sells out will come back in stock. If you do not see the item on our home page any longer, that means that it is sold out.


• For those of you who want to continue to purchase items throughout the 12 days of the sale but want us to hold your purchases for one shipment, you need to note that in the comments section of your order each time.  

If there is no note on each order [in the comments section], we will ship the items as they are ordered. 

Believe it or not some people like to have the "presents" arrive to them each and every day and they savor the packages in the mail! 


• For those of you who have your items held for one shipment at the end, your orders will continue to accrue shipping charges for each order throughout the sale- that is just automatic in our system. We will calculate the actual shipping at the end of your purchases and then refund any necessary shipping charges then.
