LIVE EACH SEASON Block 5 NOW on our website!

Hey!  It's "LUCKY" Friday!  YEEHAW!  I am even on time!  I am so excited to share BLOCK 5 of our "LIVE EACH SEASON" Mystery BOM!  Did I mention it is FREE?  So if you haven't joined us… now is the time to jump in and stitch a long with us!  This one is just cute!  It features a sheep pulling a cart full of summer FUN!  I am sorry there is no color photo yet!  We are in our final weekend before we head to St. Louis, for the International Quilt Market!  So you gals will have to get creative with your color choices until next week, when Kel fuse the pieces & stitches it up for me!  If you want, you can be patient and wait until then… just wanted to make sure I came through on my end with the design for you all to ENJOY!!!  As always, I am giving away a dozen kits for this darling block over on our Facebook page, so be sure leave a comment below for a chance to win a KIT!!!!!!!!


This week has been my FAV week at the shop so far!  The gals and I are having an absolute blast with our NEW line of designs!  And more importantly, we are having FUN working together seeing each piece come together!  Each day we have a "new fav"!  I honestly can't believe we are pulling it off as we just started a few weeks ago!  You gals are in for a BIG surprise!  I don't want to let the cat out of the bag… but I will tell you it is a very FUN & FESTIVE themed line complete with NEW {SUPER COOL}  Buttermilk Basin gear ranging from hats, shirts to buttons!  The gals are in LOVE with the NEW gear!  We have most of it in our hands… but the rest will be shipped to market!  CAN'T WAIT to share everything with you!  NEXT WEEK {for LUCKY FRIDAY or before…} I will be sharing it all with you!  I might even give  you guys the first SNEAK PEAK if I can swing it!  How cool would that be!!!!??
MY NEW fabric, wool & yarn dyed lines are already a BIG hit and shop owners are ordering them!  That makes my heart so happy!  I am always thrilled when you gals enjoy my offerings!  Henry Glass has a fantastic promotion going on at market!  I hope those of you who are attending market will stop by their booth and at my booth for more info!  I will also be handing out 4 FREE projects to the shop owners to bring back to their shops for you to make & enjoy!  I will try to see if I can get my hands on any wool etc to giveaway!  I actually haven't seen it - so I, too, am EXCITED to see it!!!!  Unfortunately, we will be missing a lovely dinner with them and the other designers, since we are flying back home for a day to be with my daughter {she has prom, a robotics comp & it is her 18th birthday!!!}  However, this is a SPECIAL day for her and I wouldn't miss it for the world!  I have missed most of her later birthdays since market always falls on her birthday weekend! 
I am so excited… I SOOO want to show you pics etc of the new stuff… I need to refocus here for a minute!!!!!  Today I ran home to grab my computer (the one day I didn't bring it as we have one here at the shop!) and I seen her grad party invites came!  They are just so sweet!  Hannah and I had a fun time designing them and will be sending them out {hopefully} before I go to market on Monday?!?!  Once I return, it will be time to ROCK the GRAD party!  I think I mentioned we are having a food truck!  We are having oven baked pizza and baked mini donuts from them.  After that - not a thing is decided! LOL!  So wish me luck as I work my magic in 3 weeks!!!!!!!!

Before I get back to work, I want to wish each of you a Happy Mother's day!  {That includes you pet mommas!!}  I hope you all have a lovely weekend with those you love!  Since it is our annual tradition to go to market this weekend… we have no plans!  We will be working, getting the trailer and packing it up!!!!  However, I am hoping to hit a garden center!  Since I have been at the shop every day/night… I have missed the flower run trips!  I told the hubby - I am taking a 2 hour break to enjoy the sunshine and garden center!!!!  Before I go, I want to remind you to not only leave a comment below, but to make sure and follow us on all our social media next week!  You know I am a social butterfly, so I will be sharing some of your FAV designers booths, patterns & market chaos!!!!!  Have a great weekend!!!!!!  Hope you enjoy block 5!!!!

Giveaway Time! New designs coming!

Happy "LUCKY" Friday!  We are so EXCITED!  We are over 19,000 followers!!!!  I can't believe it!!!  Let's celebrate by giving away {19} sets of these May flower themed patterns over on our FB page!!!  All you need to do is leave a comment below for a chance to WIN!!!



Where in the world have I been, you ask?!  Well... we were in St. Louis for World Robotics Comp for Hannah last weekend.  It was bittersweet, as it was her last comp!  While we were there, we went out for supper with Sheri & Dan.  Sheri and her mom own Calico Moon!  I was also able to sneak away between matches and go hang out at the shop with them for a few hours!  Always a GREAT time!  We did shop a bit on Saturday since the team lost in the semi finals.  Check out the pics for a few of my finds!!!!  Wish I had more time to shop!!!


Many of you have asked for a pic of the new wall in the shop!!  I snapped a pic!!  We love it!  It is sooo pretty!  We are also starting to prep for Hannah's grad party and made this cute barn door/counter stand to display pics and other fun things!  Then we also got to take our nephew and his wife out for lunch!  It was a snuggle fest with little Wesley!!!!  He is sooo sweet and growing so fast!  


You may have noticed that it's been pretty quiet on our social media & on our website...All my waking moments are filled with market prep!  Drawing, fusing, cutting, stitching, sewing & quilting!  I've been putting in 12-14 hour days!  All I can say is I'm loving what we've came up with!  You will be surprised at our new line of designs!!!  Definitely out of the box & very fresh and fun!!!   We only have 1 more week before we pack up the trailer and head to the International Quilt Market, back in St. Louis!  Wish I had a couple more weeks to prep!  I currently only have 2 things completely finished!  😳😳😳 It's going to be a busy week!!!  We got this!!!


On the home front we are working on the yard, ordering tents, tables & chairs etc, for the grad party!  Once we get back from market, we only have 3 weeks until her party!  We are going to have a food truck!  It should be a blast!  



We promise, after market, things will be back to "normal"!  We will be back in action here and restocking/adding new goods to our website!!  Thanks for following my journey.... even when we are busy working!!!  In the meantime, we hope you gals are enjoying our current boms and this gorgeous weather!  I can't wait to enjoy it tomorrow when I stitch outside!!!!  Have a fantastic weekend & let me know what I've missed!!!!  Please leave a comment below for a chance to win a set of these pretty patterns!!!! XO Stacy

BLOCK 4 Reveal! Live Each Season "MYstery" BOM * New WOOL Bundle

Hey!  Happy “LUCKY” Friday!!!!!  Today is the release of BLOCK #4 of our Live Each Season BOM!  So of course, we are giving away KITS of this darling summer themed block over on our FB page!  There is nothing like a cold glass of lemonade and fresh picked strawberries!  Both are so refreshing on a hot summer’s day!  We are loving this BOM as well as the NEW Sweet Olde Summertime BOM!  It is so fun to offer you exclusive projects that are designed just for YOU!!!  You gals are just the best!  SOOOO glad you are loving the BOM’s too!!!  Keep sharing your progress!  It always inspires someone {including me!}
This week we had BIG BIG BIG things going on at the Basin.  Again, {sorry} it is a secret and we can’t let anyone know until we get the word!  All I can say is that you gals are going LOVE it!  It is something very special – I am just tickled pink about it!  So know I am going to share it with you as soon as I can and we will make it a BIG BIG BIG BIG deal for YOU all too…. so we can all enjoy it together!!!!!!! 

Speaking of BIG deals!  You gals are always one of my FAV things to connect with during the week!  We love not only hearing from you on Fridays {or over the weekend} but through your emails, calls, comments on Instagram and all around!  The best part of my job is, and always will be, bringing you inspiration and enjoying my journey with you all!  I love hearing your stories, your struggles & being able to brighten, even your hardest days, through handwork!  We are so blessed to have one another! 

Guess what else in now on the website?  I just put the NEW April Basin WOOL Bundles on there!  The wool is flying off the website as fast as we can get it out!  We have restocked some wool, too, as many of you have noticed and ordered!  These SPRING wool bundles are so sweet!  They definitely capture the softer side of spring!  We hope you enjoy them!
From now until mid-May we will be working on models for the International Quilt Market!  I wish we were farther along – but you won’t believe the MAGIC we can make in a matter of a few weeks!  So be READY for some FUN things coming very soon!  I also received the salesman sample from my fabric company!  I am thinking that next week I FINALLY get to show you it {and remember… there is a twist on it – that you ALL will LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE}!  I will double check – but fingers crossed, we don’t have to wait any longer!!!! 
On the home front, my daughter is deciding on which college she will go to this weekend!  She will either be at the U of M here in Minneapolis or Iowa State in Ames.  Fingers crossed she is staying local for her momma!!! LOL!  I think her cat, Oscar, won’t be able to make it without her either!  They are too cute together!  He LOVES her!  Either way, we support her and if she ends up being in Iowa… shopping along the way will be a bonus!!!  She is also almost done with all her volunteer hours as a National Honors Society member.  Yesterday she volunteered at Feed My Starving Children.  That is one of her FAV places to volunteer!  Grace is patiently waiting for swimming to get over so she can dye her hair! LOL!  She is also trying to convince us to let her get a mini fridge & microwave put in her room!  She has big plans for good times with her girlfriends!  I love it!  Growing up I remember wanting to put a water fountain in my bedroom!  Like mother, like daughter! LOL!  Just love them both to pieces!

No big plans for Easter… I will be burning the midnight oil doing taxes for BB.  This is the last year I will have to get the stuff ready… as I have a gal who started working for me in January!  YEEHAW!!!!  I think we decided that we will be making homemade pasties for Easter.  George’s dad taught me how to make them.  It starts with a triple homemade batch of pie crust dough.  It is a labor of love and oh, so good!  He made huge pasties – so, of course, I followed suit!  Two barely fit on a large cookie sheet!  I will try to post a pic on Sunday!  I hope you have a fantastic Easter weekend and enjoy some delicious food, sweet desserts & make memories with those you love!!!  Be sure to leave a comment over on our FB page for a chance to win a kit of block 4!!!  It is so cute & kick of the first block in our SUMMER ROW!!!!
