NEW FALL & Halloween Designs * Giveaway * Online & Shop Event info


Happy “LUCKY” Monday!  I am doing our normal “LUCKY” Friday post tonight, since I was a bit under the weather last week!  So… Monday it is!  Plus, we have a few NEW designs/kits that many of you are waiting for so I wanted to let you know the website is filled with NEW & RESTOCKED KITS!

Today I am giving away 12 kits of our NEW Fall Hexi Mat! over on our FB page!  This mat is filled with a few of my FAV fall things!  I loved how the pumpkin & sunflower played into the Hexi!  It’s always fun putting a creative spin on my designs!  The colors on the mat are perfect!  We coordinated it to go with the Sept Hexi Door Greeter & Fall Project that was featured in American Patchwork & Quilting! 
Also on the web now. is the next CHALK IT UP! October Pattern & KIT!  I thought I loved the September one the most… but easily… this one is SPOOK-TAC-U-LAR!  I love it!  It was funny how this one came about.  I knew I wanted it Halloween themed and started with the words “Trick or Treat” and added the wool Halloween themed pieces at the bottom.  Next thing I knew… I did it the wrong size! LOL!  {It happens to the best of us!}  SEW… I ended up adding a bat to the top & a spider web between the words…and waa laaa…. It became the perfect size!  Looking back, I couldn’t imagine it without the bat on the top now!  So, don’t let the little “oopsies” get you down! 


Sometimes, it ends up working out better than you had planned! 

If you are doing the Bringing Home the Tree BOM, the final finishing kit is now available.  The best part, it includes the same fabrics we used on our quilt!  This should tie your blocks together and once you are done… our quilts should be “twinning”!!!  Thanks for all of you who have been doing this BOM!  We still are offering it for those who have recently joined in!
OK, I should jump in and share a little personal tidbit with you!  Many of you know I am a HUGE Matchbox 20/Rob Thomas fan!  My hubby & I have been enjoying following them around for years and try to book our vacation (and even teaching gigs) around their schedule!  We have loved every concert and have enjoyed some perks like front row seats, VIP packages {with no meet & greets ) etc... However, this past Saturday, we were VIPS & had the opportunity to experience a meet & greet, sound check and Q & A…. We also got to hang out with them {briefly} before we took our pics with the band AND….. then … BEST PART {besides hugs all around and actually meeting Rob & the band} … we were fortunate to be on the side stage with them during the whole concert!  It was SOOOO AWESOME!  This opportunity almost didn’t happen!  {I know, right!!!}  Right before we were going on stage, they had to evacuate over 13,000 people as it was an outdoor concert and a thunderstorm was moving in!  However, the show did go on, and George and I had the time of our lives! I can’t believe we got to experience what they experience every night on stage.  The energy, the music, the lights, the crowd & the moments they came over and sang/played for us was indescribable.  I am so grateful for this opportunity and can’t believe how cool and down to earth they were!  I could totally hang with them at any time!  😊 They are fricken AWESOME!!!!!!  {Hope you all don’t think I am crazy now!!! HAHAHA!} 
Now that I shared my exciting news with you all… we can get back to business!!!  I know many of you know about our Quilts-On-A-Stick Contest, however… some are just finding out {due to advertising} and they wanted to still get their quilts entered, so I am extending the deadline.  {Or you run into a customer when getting your labs done at the clinic- and she tells me that she and her friend have theirs started, but need more time! LOL!  True story!  {You should have seen us when we thought each looked familiar!  I wasn’t expecting her to be in a white lab coat! LOL!  Plus, we live in the Twin Cities!  Small world!}  However, just make sure it gets to us by next Wednesday or you will miss entering, as the voting starts on Wednesday evening at our Wine & Cheese Early Bird Shopping event!  So, hurry!!!!  You still have time!

WOOLSTOCK IS NEAR!  SIGN UP SOOOOON!  We are still getting sign ups with the adding room.  SEW if you are thinking about coming… let us know ASAP!  We have our menu’s planned, kits cut, treat bags ready, and want to make sure you get accounted for!  We are doing a CAMP theme… and everything is turning out so darn cute!  I am finalizing the COOL TSHIRTS tonight and will be placing my order tomorrow for them!   We are still getting in a TON of NEW goods in for it!  We received our shipment of our custom Buttermilk Basin project bags… LOVE!  Since last week, we also received over 100 bolts of NEW fabrics, TONS of NEW WOOL, we have also designed MANY new FALL projects etc.…  We will be working right up until the end to make this a GREAT EVENT &FUN SHOPPING EXPERINCE for you ALLLLLL!!!!!  At the very least… come shop at the Basin!
Sorry I was “Chatty Cathy”!  I just couldn’t wait to share all my news with you!  I hope you all have a great week!  And, be sure to keep posting your pics to our FB page!  Angela is now helping me get them shared!  You guys are so talented!  WE LOVE seeing your work!  Be sure to leave a comment on our FB page for a chance to win a kit!  Happy Stitching!
