Welcome Everyone to the Final Day of our
Quilt Designer Holiday Blog Hop!  

HO HO HO!  I am super excited to be wrapping up the hop today!  However, it is sad to see the hop come to and end.  But before I wrap it up... I'm going to share with each of you my project and Kid tested, mommy approved yummy cookie recipe and share some Holiday Cheer with each of you!

Our Twelfth Designer is 




Stacy West




  • Hometown * Mounds View, MN

Welcome to the final day of the Home for the Holidays Quilt Designer Blog Hop!  On behalf of the other amazing designers and myself, we would like to thank you so much for taking time out of your days to stop by and visit each of our blogs.  Your comments, support and enthusiasm has been simply amazing!  We truly have the best customers & readers!  You all make our days MERRY & BRIGHT!

Before I begin, I would also like to personally thank each of the designers for making this happen.  Your posts, projects & cookie recipes were perfect!  It has been a great ride and it has been a great honor to have worked with each of you!
On to my post....

Happy Holidays 
from Buttermilk Basin!






This is by far my fav cookie recipe!  Everyone will love them!

Christmas is one of my most favorite times of the year!  I love everything about it!  I love the holly, the mistletoe and especially the memories of Christmas' past.  Growing up with generations of family in the same yard was an amazing experience ~ one I will always treasure and never forget!  No gift can compare to the memories that were created with family & friends when hanging the tinsel on the tree, baking cookies or helping grandma bake svensakaka!  


 As a little girl, I would go and visit Santa at the hockey arena (Can you tell I grew up in Hockey Town - Roseau? :-) and then head on over to see a free movie at the "show hall".  The whole town would be hustling and bustling in Holiday Joy!  Shortly to follow, came the annual Sunday School Christmas program at church where we would put on a the traditional play and sing joyous carols.  I always remember receiving a red apple after the program.  Then Christmas Eve brought my mom's side of the family gathering at our home.  We had traditional turkey dinner with all the works including lefsa, flat bread, svensakaka, herring, and of course, Knox blocks in Holiday colors!  After we were stuffed and dishes were washed (& hand dried) we would open presents!  That was just the best besides waking up to the array of presents that Santa would bring on his sleigh!  I will never forget the sleigh and reindeer tracks that I seen one Christmas Day...  Oh, the wonder....  Then it was off to grandma and grandpa's on Christmas Day to spend with the cousins.  Grandpa Fred would always fill plain brown bags up with nuts, an apple, and those yummy chocolate drops!  I still remember how the salt would blend into the chocolate drop...  Those days were good days filled with lots of joy and laughter and memories that linger still today!


Now, we are enjoying creating new memories and establishing new traditions with our two little girls... Hannah and Grace and their grandparents!  We hope that one day, they will look back and be filled with the same Holiday Joy that we once experienced as a child growing up with Christmas all Around!!!
Merry Christmas Everyone!


Love any Vintage Ice Skates!


Could not pass this up... Only $10

My new Santa... The older they get the orang-er the coat!


Vintage music sheets are so fun!  
As our GIFT to you

We will be giving away 
a "bakers dozen" of kits 
for our Snowman Mitten pattern below.  
Please leave a comment and we will pick 13 lucky winners to send a kit to you just in time for the Holidays! Post now through Sunday Midnight.
Simply click the design and it will go to the original size for you to print off!
Snowman Mitten by Buttermilk Basin
Make this snowman mitten into a gift by simply filling it with a packet of hot cocoa and a candy cane stirring stick!  Or make it for a party favor for your holiday guests!  It will be hard to make just one!

Supplies Needed:
Fat 1/8th of red textured wool * Scraps of green, gold, cream and black wools
Coordinating floss to match wool selection
2 large black seed beads
1 small red sequin & 1 large red seed bead
(2) 1/4 inch brown buttons
(1) 1/2 inch tan button
Fusible webbing * (I prefer Lite Steam a Seam)

Instructions:
*Please note pattern is reversed for ease in using the fusible webbing!
1. Trace each design piece (except for the mittens) onto fusible web.  
You will not need to trace the mittens - simply cut a front and a back mitten out of red textured wool. 
2. Remove paper and place fusible pieces onto corresponding wools. Cut each piece out. Remove paper, & position all pieces in place on front of mitten only.  Next, iron applique' shapes onto front of mitten using the template as your guide.  
3. Blanket stitch all appliqués using 2 strands of coordinating floss.
4. Sew two black seed beads on for eyes * sequin and red seed bead on for holly * two brown buttons on body of snowman
5. Use 3 strands of cream floss to make french knots for snow
6. Use 3 strands of black floss to make french knots for mouth on snowman
7.  Place the front and the backside of mitten together and blanket stitch together using 3 strands of coordinating floss.  * Remember to leave the top open to stuff mitten full of goodies!
8. Sew hanger on by attaching a button to secure.  Enjoy!

Thanks again and please check back often as we have many new and exciting things planned for the New Year!
