Happy "LUCKY" Friday on this holiday weekend!!  We've been busy as bees  around here!!!  We even got the NEW  JULY Hexi {patriotic} designs ready for you before the 4th!  We can't believe how cute they turned out!  Who knew the word "flag" would lend itself to the perfect Hexi Door Greeter!  This could be my FAV! {Until I design the next one! LOL}  The Hexi mat is also perfectly patriotic!  We still have to finish stitching them - so they will look even cuter once they are finished!  In celebration of the 4th, we are giving away hexi kits!!!!  WOOHOO!  So please leave a comment on our Facebook page for a chance to WIN a kit!!!!!


Sweet Olde Summertime Block 4 is also making its debut on our website!  It features an old truck & a vintage camper!  This one is a MUST, even if you aren't doing the entire BOM!  This block is HUGE!  It is the largest in the BOM!  We are running out of the red textured wool… so snatch up the kit while the red is included!!!

Not sure if you know - but we carry a TON of wovens/homespuns at the shop!  We will now be offering them online for you, as well!  So far we made up 7 different fat quarter bundles!  They are all so pretty!  You really can't go wrong with purchasing any of them.  The bundle includes 5 pieces.  We will be adding more weekly.


If you enjoy magazines, we also put the NEW Simply Vintage Summer 2017 issue on our site!  If features some fun wool & cotton designs for summer! 

WOOL!  We whipped up some darling Baskets of Yellow Daisies/Sunflowers wool for you and tucked it in a sweet berry basket!  {Sweetness!}  Hopefully, we have provided enough wool, homespun & kit options for you to enjoy and look at while you are enjoying time chilling in the warm sunshine this weekend!!!!!

NEW FREE Block 6 Pattern & NEW Hexi DESIGNS& KITS

HEY!  It is a SUPER FANTASTIC "LUCKY" Friday over on our FB page!  We have outdid ourselves this week for you {even with being shorthanded!!}  Not only did we get the NEW Block #6 ready from our LIVE EACH SEASON "Mystery" BOM… we also pulled off getting caught up with our Hexi BOM's!  We have 2 NEW Hexi "Door" Greeters and 2 NEW Hexi Mats for you in the cutest themes!  May's designs feature SEWing themes, while June's feature HOME & hearth motifs!  These 5 NEW designs were so fun to create!  You know that is my FAV part!  With SEW many designs being released this week, it was hard to choose a LF Giveaway!  So… I decided on giving away KITS for Block #6 of the mystery bom!  So be sure to leave a comment below for a chance to win a sweet kit!!! 



 Speaking of the LIVE EACH SEASON BOM…  After realizing that people from all over the world are doing this "Mystery BOM" and ending up changing out the American flags for their country's flags - I decided to  pass on adding another flag, and instead snuck in a red, cream & blue flower!  Plus, who doesn’t love an old fashioned picnic basket filled with assorted flowers!!  This block is super summery!  We hope you enjoy it!
As I mentioned before, the new Hexi designs are cuter then ever!  I went old school on the "home" themed ones by including a few sheep, a pineapple & of course, a saltbox home!  This one will be a great one to stitch & keep up all year long!  I know many of you are just like me and gravitate towards anything for our sewing rooms!  The series would not be complete without a sewing themed design!  I don't know which is cuter - the mat of the door greeter!  Kits & patterns for all 5 designs are on the website now!!!!

This week we are starting to promote the "Biggest" & SUPER COOL FUN Handwork Event in the Midwest!  It is our 4th Annual WOOLSTOCK Event!  Each year this gets more and more exciting!  And.. each year, more and more people attend this 3 day hand work event.  This year we have NEW & EXCITING things planned!  Since we have expanded the shop, we are also expanding out in to the back with a large tent to offer up some FUN things "Under the BIG Tent" at the Basin!  We are also having a few of my FAV people creating for our "Maker's Market", also out it the back!  We just put more info on the website & will be following up with a slide show and much more in the days to come!  Registration is OPEN and we would LOVE to have you and your girlfriends attend!  Be sure to watch out for our annual tradition of designing & entering our  "Quilt- On- A- Stick" contest held during our  WOOLSTOCK event!  We will be releasing the theme next week!!!  There will be BIG prizes given away, to 3 LUCKY Winners!

This week was AMAZING on the home front as well!  My lovely daughter Hannah graduated from High School on Tuesday with honors, as you may have seen from a pic/post I shared!  What an emotional mother hen I was!  The harder I tried NOT to cry.. the more I did!!!!! But, that is how I role!   I LOVE my girls & love seeing them grow and embrace each "season" of their young lives!  I am also very excited that Hannah is now dating a new & very sweet… and oh, so caring guy!  There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing your daughter happy & confident!  Next weekend we will be having her grad party!  Exciting!  Grace also finished her last day of school today and had a great year academically, as well!  She is very excited to enjoy the summer making memories with her friends, to go to dance camp & of course, sleep!  Living the dream I tell ya!!!  OH, To be young again, right???!!!!

This weekend we are hitting a bunch of grad parties, including Jodi's son, Trevor's!!  We can't wait!  Then next week, I am taking off of work to prep for our Hannah's party, clean the house & get the yard etc done!  The excitement mounts!  HAHA!  Alright… "Chatty Cathy" here better hit the hay & post this baby!  I hope you all stay cool this weekend and enjoy your grad parties as well!  Please check out the new goods online & don't forget to print off your FREE block 6 pattern!  I will be checking our comments over the weekend {since I will need a break from outside to cool off}!!!  Have a great one everyone!!!!!!

BUT - you will hear about both of them very soon! What I can tell you is that we are getting a bunch of WOOLSTOCK signups {so if you want to attend one of the "coolest" events of the year} you might want to sign up as space is limited! PLUS, this year it will be EXTRA special! Those attending will play a BIG part of this very exciting "thing' (for lack of better words!) LOL! If you ever wanted to make a trip to our BIG event… this is the year! We will also be getting a tent to put outside at the shop and plan on having exciting things there as well!


More things going on include… We have our "NEW" June Basin Bundle on the website for purchase! It is lovely and is called "Potted Geraniums". It will be perfect for all your upcoming patriotic & geranium needs. We have included reds, greens, cream & gold in this gorgeous bundle! We will be releasing 2 MONTHS {both May & June} of our Hexi "Door" Greeters & Hexi Mats thru the Year. One will be sewing themed and the other "HOME" themed!!! If that is not enough… we will also be releasing the last block in our summer row of "LIVE EACH SEASON" Mystery BOM! So it will be a BIG weekend online!!! So exciting!!!

On the home front… HANNAH had her last day of high school today! She will graduate on Tuesday! WOW! She is out enjoying ice cream & a movie with friends!!! Her summer has officially began! Grace on the other hand has 1 more week and then she is done! We are diligently getting things ready for the grad party!
