I am just going to jump right in...  Here is sneak peek of the 1st truck pattern for January!  We LOVE it!  I forgot to snap pics of it and the pillow shownof them finished...but you get the idea!  As much as I wanted to release it today, I need to respect my gals and wait until next Friday!  I can't make them work as hard as they have been lately!  {I need them!!! LOL!}  BUT... that means you can order this baby next week, along with the JOY Snowman Pillow!  We are in LOVE with these two designs!  These are also the designs that I will be teaching on the cruise!!!  *** And yes!  We even had to get the kits cut and shipped out for the cruise too this week!!!  I think I need a bigger staff!!!!!!!!!!!!! {Will pay in wool! LOL!}


I also have some exciting news that I have been waiting to share with you...  I am freaking out that it has finally worked out for me to go teach at one of my FAV quilt shops and teach at their BIG Event!  I will be heading to the Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe for their annual Homespun & Holly Event December 2-4!  I know many of you have been waiting for me to come out that way... So now is the chance to come and enjoy the weekend there with me and 3 other fabulous designers!!!!  To register go to: www.hollyhillquiltshoppe.com!  Spaces are limited... so snatch your spot while you can!!!

New Year, New BOM, Club & more!

Happy New Year!  I hope your first day of 2016 is off to a GREAT start, like mine is!  I slept in, hubby put a porketta in the crock pot....and this post got delayed.... because we were determined to finish a Wizard of Oz, 1000 piece puzzle!  We did it!  {In between playing fetch with Oliver & carefully keeping the cats off the table!}    

I have been so excited to connect back up with you all again!  I have to say "thank you" for allowing me 10 days off with my family to just enjoy!  You have no idea how much that meant to me to be "present" in the moments with them!  Each day has truly been a blessing & filled with much joy!  Plus... I am refreshed and ready to make 2016 ROCK for Buttermilk Basin, YOU & I!!!!  I hope you plan on making it ROCK for YOU, too!!!!!  We got this!!!!

Speaking of rocking... The new BOM is partially drawn and I will start stitching it this week!  It is stunning!  And - IF you like the Merrie Christmas or Merrie Halloween BOM, then you will L-O-V-E this one!!!!  I am not sure what I will be naming it, since others are following my lead with the wool/cotton "Mystery" BOM from last year!  How cool is it to be a trend setter!!!!  {EXCITING!!}  The coolest part for each of YOU is that mine will be DIFFERENT, FREE & you won't need to be a part of a group or pay a fee to participate!  My only focus of the BOM is making it AMAZING & FUN for YOU!!!!!  The NEW BOM will be starting on January 15th!  Get EXCITED & be ready!!!!!

Also... Due to the popularity of my Vintage TRUCK designs... I am thrilled to say that I will be releasing a series of 12 trucks thru the year starting on January 15th!!  I have a few drawn and will be fusing/stitching them, also, starting next week!  As you can see from the picture below... Bella was quite a helper drawing the first 2!  If you are taking the cruise... You will be the FIRST to get the 2nd truck pattern/kit in the series!  I will be teaching it on the cruise!!!!  T-shirts, name tags, little extras are also being worked on!  We will be shipping all our cruise "goods" this month to Florida!!!  It is almost time gals!  Lisa & I plan on having a great, fun & relaxed time with you all on the cruise!  Plus we have a BIG, I mean BIG surprise for you cruisers!!!!   I can't wait to tell you more about that!!!

I can't keep the "cat in the bag" any longer!  If the new BOM, designs & exciting cruise isn't enough...  We will be starting a CLUB!  All I will say today, is that it will be worth joining!  It is called... SEW Lucky!  This will be my "baby"!  I love that you inspire me to BE MORE & I LOVE, LOVE,  LOVE surprising you and being your source for CREATIVE INSPIRATION!!!!!!  Cheers to US and a year filled with love, laughter & "LUCKY" Friday Giveaways!!!!   Let's get the new year party started... Please head over to our FB page and leave me a comment about your Holidays, your excitement over the new offerings or a pic for a chance to WIN these patterns!!!  It has been toooo long!!!  Glad we have a fresh start & are back in action!!!  YEEHAW!!!!!  All my best... Stacy!
