Giveaway, NEW Kits & Wool!!!

Tis' the Season... It's LUCKY" Friday Holiday edition!!  I'm wanting nothing more then to "make it merry" for some of my amazing bb peeps!!  This week, I have the NEW Winter Simply Vintage magazine & the most gorgeous Holiday colored wool bundle up for grabs over on our Facebook page!  Both of these, along with NEW Kits & Patterns are NOW on the website under Shop Online, NEW! Patterns & Kits!  Quantities are limited!  Oh- I also kitted up around 24 more Truck Full of Joy kits as I know many of you are waiting for those!!!  The Barn Event Snowman Heart {Exclusive} is also available as a kit on the website!  Head over there for a Jolly Ol' time!!!  www.buttermilkbasin.com



This week we were "happy little elves" at the shop!  We were excited to bundle up patterns & kits to be given as gifts!  We even had husbands, daughters & friends ordering for gifts!  Talk about the perfect gift!!!  I'd LOVE to have my sock filled up with patterns & wool!!!!! 🎄🎄🎄


On the home front... No "Holiday Magic" has happened YET this week!No elves have baked, decorated or wrapped... The only action here seems to be deliveries left at the door, cats playing around the tree & messes made in the kitchen, while I'm at work!  Starting after work {today} I will start decking the halls!!!  Better late, then never!  Next year- I am starting in July!!!!  OR I could just keep my decorations up all year long!!!! 😂😂😂 What do you think?!?!

Oh...  I have exciting NEWS!  Today I rented two spaces!  One will be for.... MARK your CALENDARS... An {After Market Party}!  Each spring we design & exhibit at the International Quilt Market!  This year we plan on sharing that excitement with you!  We will have a "pop up shop" here in the Twin Cities right after market!  We will have make it take its and much more!   

Then we rented a NEW space for the {BARN} Event!  I will be switching the name, because it will not be in a barn this year {unless I find one to buy between now & then}!!!  It will still be over the top & amazing (with new fun things added) and the new location is awesome!  It is right here, close to the shop!  That also means it will only be about 20-25 minutes from the airport for those of you who fly in!  And there are hotels, food & shopping galore here in the Twin Cities!  We have so many new ideas & concepts for this event!  I can't wait!  If you have any "new name" suggestions... Let me know!  

Ok... One more thing!  I loved all the comments & suggestions last week about the new Mystery project for next year!  So many great ideas... I'm keeping them all in mind!  I have decided on the project!  The funny part... It was my husband's idea!  {I hate to admit it!!!! Lol}  I LOVE the idea and I am thrilled to be able to offer it to you VERY SOON!!!  So much fun & excitement going on here at the Basin, I can hardly stand it gals!!!!  Can I mention again how much I love YOU all & love what I do!!!!  Make it a merry & bright weekend!  Don't forget to comment on our FB page!  I want you to win these goodies to put in your sock!!!!!!!  HO, HO, HO... Santa Stacy!🎅🎅🎅🎄🎄🎄

Pattern Giveaway, NEWS & More

Are we ready for "LUCKY" Friday pattern giveaway over on our FB page?!?  I felt like Santa sending out lots of products to the LF winners this week!!!  I love it!  Check those mailboxes... Lots of goods are on the "sleigh" heading your way!!!  


Before I go any further... I can't wait to share this fantastic NEWS with you!  I know many of you have been waiting with anticipation for new fabric line(s) from me!!  Well... I'm so excited to finally be able to make that happen with a new, reputable company, many of you know and love!  I am so excited... I'm blessed to be given opportunities to work with people who believe in & support my vision!  Great things are on the horizon gals... I LOVE fresh starts!!!!

Ok... I did it!  I got out all your goods but 5 orders (waiting on wool for kits)!!! I am old school and manually do everything...which also means going to the post office to ship them!  The postmasters have been soooo awesome about working with the volume of my packages {twice a day} for the last 2 weeks!  I'm so grateful!  I'm bringing them a treat tomorrow since they graciously put up with totes & totes of orders to ship and even thanked me for being so great/easy to work with!  So sweet!  And on that note... I don't know how the postmasters do it during this hectic time of year!!!  I can't believe how impatient & not polite folks are!  I say spread good cheer & make it merry!!!  So big thanks to the Fridley PO crew!  You guys ROCK!!!!

This weekend I'll be putting up more kits & the new Simply Vintage magazine online!  I had to cut more kits {since our lovely website oversold the quantity I put available}!  So while I was cutting... I cut more kits for the Truck Full of Joy pattern, that sold out right away!  So be sure to keep an eye out this weekend for that along with more goodies!!!  I also cut more BOM, Snowmen Sock and Americana Crow on Spool kits... those are available now!



Thanks for making my Sunday last weekend over on our FB page!  Your comments were awesome!  I felt so much better when I realized I wasn't the only one who hadn't put the tree up yet!  I tell Ya- I shouldn't even look on Instagram or Pinterest...  Some have been posting their Holiday decorating for weeks!!!  How do they to it????  I'm just happy we got the tree up & decorated!!!!  Yeehaw!!!!  So that's my "holiday" update!  Keep sharing your pics!  I love seeing them so much!!!


In family news... Grace went ice skating for the first time and loved it!  Then both girls went to the KDWB 2015 Jingle Ball concert!  They had a great time and seen a variety of artists!  Then tomorrow I'm taking a day off, having lunch with my hubby & then we're hitting a movie....and I'm going to a Christmas Event at church with my friend Shelly!!!  Should be a great start to the weekend!!!  

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday & weekend!!!  Please pop me a comment or a pic over on our FB page for a chance to win these patterns!   Wonder what you've been up to!  I'm betting it's finishing up those Christmas gifts, baking cookies & spreading good cheer!!!!!  

Before I go... Here's a great, quick & easy holiday snack mix recipe for you!  It's called Christmas Crack!  It's delicious!!!!!  Enjoy!

Road Trip Part One... Could it be Santa?!?

Happy Monday everyone!  What a fantastic weekend I had!  For starters, the weather was gorgeous!   {So nice we didn't have to wear our winter coats!!!}  What better time to hit the road!!!  Time to head over to St. Cloud, to pick up some props I purchased!  

Our first stop on our trip was at Nelson's Truck Stop!  Let me tell you... they have the largest, homemade & fresh bakery goods you ever did see!  The items of choice were, a cinnamon roll & an apple fritter {plus a couple for the fam back home!!!}.

Then we went to a couple gift shops!  And look who we were greeted by?  It was none other then the man in the red suit!!!  Santa was sweet and even took a selfie with me!  AND...I told him how good all my BB pals have been... so you better get your socks out!  He could be coming down your chimney with goodies just for you!!!!  You never know!!!

The shops smelled amazing!  Fresh pine & berries were tucked in here and there while candles were lit, all aglow!  Snowmen, Santas & reindeer were all around!  Shoppers were excited, lines were long... but you could tell the Holiday Magic was in the air!!!  To be continued....
