Ready for our 2017 Mystery BOM & Lucky Friday Giveaway?!

Happy NEW Year!  Let's kick off 2017 with an awesome giveaway over on our Favebook Page!!!!  Today is "LUCKY" Friday and we want to make this another great year of inspiring, creating & giving!  With the New Year, comes another NEW {FREE} MYSTERY BOM!  So this week… {before block 1 is revealed next Friday} … we will be giving away 12 Mystery Block 1 kits of our new "LIVE EACH DAY" Seasonal Row themed Mystery BOM!  This BOM was inspired by Henry David Thoreau's quote, as shown in the picture!  {Another one of his quotes graces my blog header!!!}  I know it is intended to be a simple reminder to live & experience each season fully as it passes.  To me, it symbolizes enjoying & embracing the seasons in one's life!  Before you know it, we will be on to another "season or chapter" in our lives… so let this be a gentle reminder to be present, embrace each day and just enjoy!  BTW, this BOM is stunning!  I have included the general layout/diagram so you can have a visual!  I can't wait to create this quilt through the seasons with each of you!!



I am sorry it has been awhile since I posted… I have to say December was a whirlwind!  It started out with teaching out of state, a mini vacation with my husband and…. wait for it… fighting a nasty virus through the Holiday Seasons.  Of the 4 of us… I got hit the hardest L!  I am happy to say that I have one more day of antibiotics and that I am FINALLY starting to feel myself again!  Being sick did force me to relax, enjoy time with the fam & allow me to watch HGTV, Joanna, House Hunters & Property Brothers!  LOL!  Even though we took turns being under the weather over the Holidays… we did manage to make some great memories, enjoy my family's favorite dishes, bake cookies with the girls & spend time with those dear to our hearts!  This was the first year my brother and his wife came down for Christmas!  It was so special!  As many of you know… with loss of parents & grandparents… the Holidays aren't quite the same… so this really was a great way to wrap up 2016 with them being here to celebrate with us!  How did your Holidays go?  I sure hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!!!!??

On the shop front… December proved to be a hard month to get through.  We did end up slowing down to regroup & get caught up!  But no need to worry!  We are almost back at full strength at the shop, too!  Kelly's ankle is healing and she is coming back on Monday!  Yeehaw! And… Liz {who was a stay at home mom}, ended up going back to being a stay at home mom… which opened the door to hire April!  She has been a longtime customer who recently retired!  I am thrilled to say that things always have a way of working out for me & the Basin!  I am blessed! 

Today marks another new "season" at the Basin. Big changes are happening and today is the day it all starts!  We will first celebrate the Holidays with a luncheon & then I will be laying out all the NEW & EXCITING things I have planned for BB this year to the shop gals!  {Wish me luck!!!!!}  It is going to be ONE AMAZING YEAR…. and I CAN'T WAIT to share the details with you starting next week!  I can tell you that we did decide to kit up the Bringing Home the Tree BOM!  I know that is what many of you have been waiting to hear!!! We will have lots to share with you next week!  So be ready!

Before I go, I want to make sure and THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your support, friendship & enthusiasm over this past year!  I am so grateful and know that without you, there would be no Buttermilk Basin!  You guys ROCK!  Cheers for another amazing creative year!  Please be sure to leave a comment over on our Facebook Page for a chance to win 1 of 12 kits from our NEW MYSTERY BOM!!!!!  Stacy

Looking forward to a new BOM. I had such fun putting together the Let It Snow. Some of us don't use Facebook or Instagram. Does that mean we are left out of any drawings? Just wondering. Have a great day!

Happy New Year, Stacy! I, too, was sick during the holiday, but it didn't stop me from hosting 14 extended family members from Illinois. We rented a lodge at Bear Lake, UT, and enjoyed skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, and working jigsaw puzzles. It was, indeed, a memorable Christmas!

Linda said...
