6 Days to Go Before Christmas

Only 6 days left to go before Christmas and all of the orders for Christmas are on their way to customers!

Denise, Nikki and Anna are definitely in the festive mood now (you can't hear the Christmas music in the background but "I wish it could be Christmas everyday" is playing!)
As for Royal Mail and Couriers - we know we couldn't do without them, especially David our UPS driver. Here's a picture of him by his UPS van. So thank you David for being so cheerful every time you visitThe despatch area has been full of mail bags and the UPS van was practically coming through the door today (as the photo shows)!
We hope that all of our customers receive their orders for Christmas presents on time and that Santa has been generous this year. We look forward to being of service to you again next year.

We'll be closed from 24th December to 28th December, are open on 29th and 30th December and reopen on Friday 2nd January 2009.

Happy Christmas Quilters!

How fast time flies when you're having fun and from the pictures below there is every indication that there has been much hilarity at The Cotton Patch of late (or is it hysteria..we're not quite sure...)

The overwhelming response to the last newsletter and for Christmas orders coupled with high levels of flu, colds and replacement knee surgery (one person but two knees) has meant unprecedented numbers of orders and seemingly less people to process them. It must be because its the coldest start to winter in 30 years - definitely a good time to be making quilts!

These pictures are the first ones on the blog for over a month which probably says it all...we just haven't stopped!

Of course we are delighted that we're busy and really appreciate all the custom that we've had in the past year and would like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.

From all at The Cotton Patch
