LUCKY FRIDAY Winner! Blog HOP Starting!

Happy Saturday Everyone! 
Thank you all so much for the well wishes!  I know they will help me feel better soon!!!!  Thank you also for taking the time to follow the blog.  I really am looking forward to seeing you each day for the next 15 days as the blog hop will be starting!
Your comments were all awesome! And for those of you who have never attended a retreat - please don't feel bad... I have only been to 1! Usually I teach!!! So I, too, hope to get to more when my time frees up a bit! Overall... most love the social aspect (hanging with their BFF!), being ...with like minded people, learning new ideas, sharing new techniques, making memories... and then wine, margaritas, chocolate & food {no cooking & desserts!) were also top in comments! Looks like we really are all kindred spirits!!! Wouldn't it be cool if we could all gather at the same retreat! Talk about memory making! Anyway... Jean Thompson (6:57 am) is the LUCKY Friday WINNER!!!Please email us at orders@buttermilkbasin.com with your mailing address by Tuesday so we can get you your patterns!

Don't forget!  The Spring Thyme Blog Hop starts tomorrow...March 1st!  So stop back here tomorrow and get started on 14 days of inspiration and complimentary patterns & yummy recipes from some of your favorite designers!

Actually BOTH my girls!!!  I know some of you have met them and know they are both pretty sweet and really do enjoy visiting with you!  Some kids don't do that these!  But I have been toting them with me to my events since they were born!!!  LOL!  And yet neither one of them are into wool!!!! GO figure!!!  {Once they get older, right!!!?}  Also - on MONDAY registration is OPENING up for our AUTUMN IN THE COUNTRY BARN EVENT!  You won't want to miss out on hanging out with me in class & this fun, memorable event in general!  I guarantee you will have a fantastic time!  Here are the flyers for the event!  I LOVE them!!!  So my question for you is...

Winner is... More BOM Blocks!!!

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I am so glad each of you took the time to comment about your fun concerts you have attended!!  I loved reading each one!  It is so fun to get tickets as a gift, give them away or be surprised!  We had an awesome array of signers and concerts from:
Lady Gaga to Kid Rock
Charley Pride to Big & Rich
Grandkids school programs to Worship & Handbells

I think we covered most of the categories!!!  How fun!  I think any concert is a good concert whether it be watching Hannah play at her orchestra concert or taking her to a concert like last night!  We sure had a great time!  It is also a great way to escape the troubles of today and make memories with someone you enjoy spending time with!!  So thanks to each of you for sharing with me!

Now.... the winner is Joy's Mom!  So Joy's Mom, we all want to know who Kinky Boots are?  I am thinking a country group??  Us curious cats need to scoop on this group/band!!! LOL!!!  I might need to put them on my go to list! :)  Please email us at orders@buttermilkbasin.com by Tuesday so we can get your patterns out to you!

Next up - Mystery BOM!  I am having a blast sharing and seeing all the neat colors, textures & background choices!  The coolest part... there have been no two alike!  Isn't that cool!!!  So here you!  Have a great weekend & stay warm!!!!! PS* Thanks for the well wishes!  I think I am on the right track now!!!

Win win win!

It is that time again!!!  "LUCKY" Friday is here!!!  Yeehaw!  First-if you won last week please contact us!  We are waiting for a couple more addresses to send!  Starting this week each week the winner(s) need to email us at orders@buttermilkbasin.com by each Tuesday as we start fresh for LF on Wed!  Ok- this week was crazy busy, exhausting & but inspiring!  I learned that allergic reactions don't go away right away... Rather, they like to linger and mess with you!  And just when you start to feel better... They start teasing you again until you sleep most of the day away!  But... It also keeps you laying low which allowed for numerous patterns to be drawn, reviewing designs for upcoming issues, getting paperwork done and then it causes you to run behind in other areas like kitting!  I have a good chunk of kits cut and will finish this weekend so everything should be out on Monday!  We sold out of our kits within 24 hours!  {And we had a TON!} Crazy!  Thank YOU!  I have someone to help kit so we may be adding more at some point!  Keep an eye out of the website!  Jodi also has been busy putting other kits on the website too this week and will be updating that weekly -so check that out!  We are listening to your needs and doing our best to meet them!!!  My fabric also came in this week!!!  I got the official 1 yard cut of each!  Everything looks good- but the lights... Back to square 1!  So.... I'm nervous that I won't get it in time to sew my new designs for market?!?!  Fingers crossed it gets right & sent asap!  Tonight Hannah & I are going to Kasey Musgraves' concert!  Should be a great time!!!  So my question for you is... What was your last concert you went to?!? Good luck & have a great Friday everyone!!!  You're AWESOME!!

Memories & a Recipe!

Do you ever see something and instantly wish you could show someone it or share this experience with them?  Or know that person would love this or specifically the shop?  That's something that I've been experiencing a lot lately... Especially this weekend when GW and I were out and about!  All I could think about was my mom!  She would have loved this going road trippin with us... this place & their darling array of unique children's old toys & doll clothes!  She never passed up a vintage yo-yo quilt or stitchery piece!  And even as she grew older... she kept the childlike wonder dear to her heart!  I hope these little pieces spark a little childhood memory in each of us!  May your week be filled with joy & laughter!!!  {PS-I did buy the little metal kitchen strainer in the pic below and will think of mom when I set it out at each show to hold my business cards/flyers!  Miss you momma!!} xo

Here's also a neat recipe!  Can it get any better than gourmet Rice Krispie bars? Enjoy!

Redwork Show!

Yesterday, I was fortunate to get a sneak peek of the Four Season's Quilt Shop Redwork Club Show that will be on display for the next 2 months!  Two collages are from the challenge pieces where they were required to use the blue and cream fabric somehow in their piece!  They were all so sweet!  I will post more tomorrow!  Have a nice evening!
