On the 4th 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 4th Day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 3 Calling Birds. 

When I thought about calling birds, all I could think about was that I have 3 "Calling Birds" of my own, my own 3 little… or not so little… "Calling Birds" call me all the time. They call me to pick them up. They call me to drop them off. They call me to tell me that they are hungry. To tattle on each other. To complain that I am being unfair and that no one else's parents do it this way. They call throughout the house becuase they don't want to exert the effort to move and actually find me where I am. Did I mention that they call me when they are hungry… all the time? And the list continues but I think you get the picture. There is a lot of calling at Casa Fig! So we opted out of any more calling birds :-).

So since we've determined that I already have plenty of "calling birds", we decided to offer some of our STAR STRUCK quilt kits instead.

A woderful classic quilt, our brand new STAR STRUCK pattern has been done in several variations and this is my favorite color combination so far. An unexpected pop of warm black mixed with our favorite taupe floral, small print orange and coral solid and topped off with a bright apple green, makes this a fabulous vintage feeling color combo.



… I apologize for the pictures. I forgot to take them earlier and had to shoot the quilt early this morning with no light! Hope you can still see what you need to see!


 … This is definitely one of those patterns that is a joy to work on for those of us who llike a more intricate block once in a while, we did 1-2 blocka an evening to fully enjoy the process. The project comes together from a combination of triangles and squares and it is truly a joy to watch each and every block emerge!


… our kit version has the 4 x 4 stars with the posts as shown in the 3 x 3 version.


As well as some lovely French General Scissor Rolls….


… perfect for travel or just to store your scissors, rotary cutters, pencils or any other long and skinny quilting or sewing supplies. Made from a lovely natural colored linen fabric and wrapped in a dyed ribbon, these scissor rolls are classy and beautiful.



 … each roll comes with a little mini pouch with an emboidery goodie inside.


AND FOR THE SPECIAL OFFER OF THE DAY:   Today we are going to do something a little bit different and donate $ to one of our favorite charities that operates right here in our home town of San Leandro!


The George Mark Children's House provides end of life and hospice care for children with terminal and life threatening diseases and their families. Read more about them here. In fact our Fig Tree sewing group along with some great friends at MODA, will be hosting a RED AND WHITE CHARITY QUILT SHOW in February to benefit the George Mark Children's House… much more on that later and how you might participate!

So depending on how quickly we sell out of today's goodies, Fig Tree will donate to the home through the RED & WHITE Quilt Show.

If we sell out by 8:30, we will donate $500.00

If we sell out by 9:30, we will donate $450.00

And so forth…

So even though we usually hope that the goodies last as long as possible and that as many people can get a chance to get what they are looking for throughout the day, today we are hoping for a super quick sell out to benefit the home! So shop away!

The elves are hard at work so come back tomorrow on Tuesday for new goodies on the 5th 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.

    I really like the Star Struck pattern. I was hoping for the softer colors. Do you plan to have any other versions of the kit? Thanks so much for another great 12 Days of Christmas!

  2. Joanna | 2nd Dec 13

    Yes! The Mirabelle versions are coming up as a pre order. Stay tuned in a couple of days!

  3. Joanna | 2nd Dec 13

    Those have all sold out!

    Fourth day offer gone at 8:30?! Too bleary-eyed to order at 7:00 so thought I had a little time. So disappointed.
    Tomorrow maybe. What about people who have no early a.m. access? Please help

  5. Joanna | 2nd Dec 13

    The kits are still available. The scissor rolls are sold out. Better luck on future days. Sometimes the items are sold out within an hour so you would need to make sure to check closer to 7:00 to guarantee your choices!  Thanks so much.

    How can I access to order bags? I’ve tried and tried but can’t seem to do that. Guess my computer savvy lacks that!

  7. Joanna | 2nd Dec 13

    There are no bags as a part of todays special. Unfortunately yesterdays products are sold out. Best of luck with upcoming days sales!
