Kalissa’s Newest

Kalissa was over the other day and asked me to take pictures for her.  She printed t-shirts with new designs and was wanting photos so she could put them in her shop.

She said I take better pictures than Craig does.  HA!!  I don’t know if that was a compliment or not.

I think many of you are going to love her new shirt…me, I love it!


After I took the picture she said, “Hey, do you have a quilt that would look good with this color?”  I said I did and told her where to find it.

Doesn’t the picture look fab?  I just love the display of the quilt laying out on the T-shirt.  For those of you who are curious, the quilt is my Scrap Crystals quilt. You can read more about it HERE.  It’s a Bonnie Hunter quilt and can be found in her book More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.

But back to the shirt…I love it!  I’m going to need one. I love the blue color too.

Kalissa wants to do a shirt each season.  In the spring she did “Bloom Where you’re planted”.  Now the summer shirt is… “Sunshine State of Mind”.

While Kalissa was getting shirts printed she decided to honor a request of several people.  She had the “Less Bitchin’ More Stitchin'” shirt printed in a V-neck.  She is willing to take special requests as long as the people are willing to wait until she is ordering again.  These V-necks are now in stock but in a very limited supply. If you order ANY Less Bitchin’ More Stitchin’ shirt – crew neck or V neck – you can a free project bag with your order!

Someone requested a 5XL shirt.  That can probably happen too but please note the t-shirt costs Kalissa more as it’s a larger size so she would have to pass that cost on to the person buying the shirt.  Kalissa really does want to work with people.

Here we are showing off the new shirts.  I’m no model so please imagine the shirt on a body with the curves in the right place!!  HA!!

Kalissa and I just like to show you what we’re up to.  If anyone wants a shirt you can find them on her Etsy shop which is HERE.  If you have a question for her, you can find her contact info there too.

Kalissa and I want to thank everyone for their suggestions when we did the last post about shirts.  As a treat for one of you, we plan to give away two shirts.  One will be given away here on the blog and one on my Instagram account.  You’ll get to pick an in-stock shirt of your choice.  So leave a comment here and tell us which is your favorite shirt from the shop.  That’s the one you will win.  That’s all you have to do to be entered.  Then go find my Instagram account @jos_joscountryjunction and enter to win there too!!

Here’s a note from Kalissa:

I HAVE FEW SALES/DISCOUNTS TO OFFER YOU AS WELL!

If you are a repeat customer, use PINK10 for 10% off of your order!

As always, free shipping on orders over $35!

Any Less Bitchin’ More Stitchin’ shirt ordered comes with a FREE project bag!

All orders are packaged with love, BY ME – not some big warehouse somewhere. You are truly supporting me and my small business and my desire to grow a business to allow me to spend more time at home with my boys.

I’ve got a blog post up live here going into detail on the designs and my inspiration! http://www.thepinkshoelaces.com/sunshine-state-of-mind/

      I love the blue one too! They are such nice shirts. I’ve already bought one and I’m thinking of a couple more to purchase as well. Thanks for all you do for us quilters! We love both of you. Have a great day!

    I love the new blue one. Beautiful color! And the phrase is so appropriate for our times! We all should be “peacemakers” or piecemakers! Good luck with your business. And thank you for the chance to win. Love you blog, Jo~ Helen

    OK, I really like the Less Bitchin’ More Stitchin’ shirt but I hated to say it out loud since it sounds like I do counted cross stitch. I don’t. My kind of stitchin’ involves a Bernina and a heavy duty gas pedal. There. I’ve said it out loud and it feels good.

    Got my Blessed are the Piecemakers. Love the color and the saying. I loved the Spring shirt. I even recieved a compliment from my physical therapist about how soft it is. A win/win. Less Bitchin more Stitchin is the one I want that I don’t have. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I love the less bitchin and the Piecemakers one, but since I’d be more limited in where I could wear the bitchin (schools tend to frown on curse words) and my quilt group is the Piecemakers, I’d choose it!

    I love them all. I saw one one that said something like ” only Fun grandmas are still riding in their 70’s.”
    Looking for one next year for sure.

    It’s a toss up between Blessed are the Piecemakers and Bloom where you are planted. If forced to choose, I’d like to win the Bloom shirt. Thanks for sharing the new designs and for the opportunity to win!

    I love the “Blessed are the Piecemakers” the most. Sunshine state of mind is a very close second, though!

    Definitely “blessed are the piecemakers” is my favourite because our local comfort quilt group is known as the “piecemakers”. Another quilting group I run with is named the “loose threads” would love that on a T.

    LOVE Kalissa’s shirts! She’s talented like her mama!! Our quilt guild is “Piecemakers” so would purchase in a blink….if there were v-neck options. Anymore the regular necks bother, but really find the v-neck most comfortable. Thanks!

    While I really like Kalissa’s new quilt shirt, I absolutely LOVE her new Summer shirt with the retro vibe!!! Unfortunately, I just did a bit of a closet cleanout and realized that I’m not currently in the market for another casual t-shirt. Thanks for offering a chance to win one (as I’d love nothing more than to add one to my collection!!)

    I am ancient and slow and trying to participate ( with a lot of help from friends) in the Community Garden for the first time, so I fell like the pink “Bloom Where You Are Planted” would be appropriate for me. It is a hard decision, though, because I really like all of them.

    Jo. I love your blog. I ran across it after the huge wind storm hit the midwest. I’m a Missouri girl transplanted in Texas. You helped me understand what the farmers and folks up North were facing. Since that day’ I read of your life and feel like I’m back on the farm in MO. Thank you! Your quilting is an inspiration as is the charity work you and all the other quilters do. I love your daughters shirt Blessed are the Piecemakers!
