42 NEW Items on Web * Autoship Program Now Available

Hey hey!  I should have done a LIVE feed from the shop today!  We have been swamped and having a BLAST at our Winter Party!  Everyone's projects are turning out great!  I have loaded them up with baked goods, treats & WOOL!  OK - back to "LUCKY" Saturday!  How have you all been?  Have you been working on your mystery blocks?  We have been seeing your blocks on the boards and shared to our page!  Can't wait to get a moment to come up for air and start sharing your pictures!!!!  Keep posting them to our page!  I LOVE seeing & sharing them!!!!  Today I am giving away 12 KITS of the NEW Hexi Mat thru the Year kit - January!  So be sure to leave your comment over on our FB Page before you head over to the website and check out our 42 NEW items I added on there last night!!!!

I am so EXCITED to share that we finally figured out how to make AUTOSHIP work!  The only trick is that you need to sign up for any of the NEW Monthly Subscriptions before FEBRUARY 28th.  After the 28th, the subscription {monthly autoship} will not be available!  There is no way around changing that to meet the needs of those who want to join later.  If you sign up for them you typically get a reduced product rate and half off of standard shipping.  It really is a GREAT deal!  We have 3 options on there at the moment!  The first one is Hexi Mats thru the Year, the second is A Year of Hexi "WORD" Door Greeters and of course… we have a new wool offering… Basin Bundles!  If you need any assistance or more info on these autoship programs that ship the goods right to your door each month - just give us a call at the shop!  763-792-0638!  We are happy to assist you!!!!!!!!!!!  And THANKS to Jodi for staying late last night to help a girl out!!!  Love her!!

Speaking of NEW projects!  I think I put most of the NEW patterns & kits we offered for our monthly online events only online for you!  If I am missing anything that you had seen… just let me know and I can get it on the site for you!  We have 42 new offerings!  They are all under Shop Online, NEW! NEW! NEW! Releases!  Some kits are limited, so be sure to head over there and take a look!!!!
Next week I will be flying out to teach at the Cedar City Quilt Guild Show.  I know my classes filled right away and that I will I am SUPER LUCKY, as I get to connect with 225 of you who will be attending my trunk show on Friday night!  I better bring my A game!!!!  I can't wait!  I love sharing & meeting you all!!!!  So it will be a short work week for me at the shop.  If you need anything while I am gone - the shop gals can help you!  And if you are Salt Lake… Stop by and visit me at the airport as I have a 5 hour layover!  LOL!!!  We could party over a diet coke on ice & wool!!!!! 
Next up on the list is releasing the last 2 trucks in our Vintage Trucks thru the Year!  I am crossing my fingers they will be completed next week and that I can pop them on the website as soon as I get back in town!  Then the other 2 clubs I had started will also get back on the front burner!  Such a juggling act!  I did hire more help, but I continue to be working too much in the shop!  Sooooo if any of you are AWESOME web gals, social media gurus… YOU NEED to email me!  We could work MAGIC together!!!!

On the home front, my house is a disaster, clothes are waiting to be washed… etc.. etc…  I need to get in and get my brows done as they are shaggy!  LOL!  But - that doesn't stop me from having a slumber party with my girls, laughing with Hannah as we watched Grace give us a play by play on how to make a salad and pack a "healthy" lunch…  or snuggling up with my hubby to watch the bball game with pizza I picked up on my way home!  Life is what you make and I am not letting anything stop me from having a blast!  HAHAHAHA!!!

Alright gals… I better close up the shop so we can make the 2nd dance comp of my Gracie girl's dance!!!!!!!!!  Hope you all have a great weekend!  And try to skip the dishes & stitch the day away!  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the new HEXI Mat kits!!!  XOXOXOXO Stacy

NEW Live Each Season Mystery Block 1!

Happy “LUCKY” Friday!  You know what today is!!!!  It is the reveal of our 1st block in our FREE Mystery BOM * Live Each Season!  WHOO HOOO!  It is stunning and the best part is that ALL our kits are cut and ready to SHIP!  You can head over to www.buttermilkbasin.com and order them now!  How about that for kickin it in the New Year!  If you leave a comment below… you have a chance to win 1 of another DOZEN that I am giving away this week over on our FB Page! Those will also ship out right away!!!!

Since we used some fun thread on this one.... and will continue to use more of the same thread in the next 2 blocks, we will be adding a thread kit hopefully next week {or once all the threads come in}!  I used some of the new wool thread along with some gorgeous hand dyes from various companies.  We will be combining these into one set for the “Spring” row!  Be sure to keep an eye out for that too!

Next week we will be revealing 2 more FANTASTIC WOOL monthly series and our WOOL Club.  We have a big surprise in store for those of you who sign up for both wool series!  They are not block of the month’s – they are standalone projects that are monthly themed!  We have gone out of the box on these too!  Friday can’t come soon enough!  I want to share them with you right now!!!!  {But the shop girls won’t let me!!! LOL!}  And the WOOL Club… You will be able to sign up for an automatic monthly shipment of wools that will be shipped to you once a month!  These wools will be yummy and monthly theme related!  I will be hand picking each piece for the bundles myself!!!  SO EXCITED!  

Speaking of shop gals!  We have completely revamped almost every area here along with our procedures…. All geared to better serve you and your needs!  Kelly has been back 2 days this week and April dove right into the kitting!  Angela is now doing all our printing and Jodi will be your go to gal for all your ordering/shipping needs!  Of course, I am here too if you need me!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL!  
Next weekend the shop will be open for all you locals!  We will be open Thurs-Sat.  I will the shop hours on our calendar on our website.  Be sure to look for all the details!   We will be having our monthly party and doing a small project again!  I think I will continue doing them as ”freebies” for now!  That may change at some point down the road!

WOOLSTOCK AND…. We can’t believe it!  People are already calling to sign up for WOOLSTOCK without any info ready!  We took 2 more today!  So if you want to attend WOOLSTOCK… I would put it on your radar!  ALSO…. We are doing a summer version in JUNE or Early July!  Registration for that one will start next week!  I will have everything available on our website for that next FRIDAY!  Since MN winters can be unpredictable we decided March was not a good time to host an event!  So… summer it is!

On the home front…. All is well!  I am trying to change my "sleep" or lack of sleep hours and had been making progress until tonight... when 3 hours later... after much website issues... the NEW BOM is up!  Enough said! LOL!  This week we attended Hannah’s orchestra concert and plan to go to Gracie’s dance comp on Saturday!  The girls have been super busy, as always!!  Hannah’s robotic comp game was revealed, so they have started getting their plan to build their robot.  She has it every day from 6—9 and all day on Saturdays!  They have 6 weeks to build it and get it ready to compete!  Exciting!  Grace has torn muscle :( so I have been taking her to have it worked on so she can be ready for state comps coming up!  Tomorrow is DATE night with my hubby!  We are going to the Wolves game!  I love watching them play hoops!!!  Look for us on TV!  We are in the 2nd row behind the players!!! LOL!  Usually the one with a Diet Coke in my hand!!!!!

Ok – I best get to bed!!! But OH... I have figured a NEW way to get you the full-size block! {This one is 12.5 inches from the tip of the bunny’s now to the end of the basket!!!}  So you can print off 2 pages that overlap now to create a full size pattern without having to enlarge it!  HAPPY DANCE!  Be sure to hop over to our FB page & leave a comment about the NEW BOM!!!!!!!  I can’t wait to hear if you like it!!!!!!!!!!!!  Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!!!  XO Stacy

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
