Celebrating the Holiday Weekend!

Hope your Holiday weekend is off to a great start!  My husband had today off so we headed out to Minnehaha Falls for a fun afternoon and then headed to the Minneapolis Red White & Boom celebration for live music & an outdoor movie!  It was a great time!  Could have done without the bats flying around though!!! Lol!  Not a fan of them!  Hope tomorrow finds you doing more celebrating!  Stay cool!

Fabric Giveaway, Commemorative Quilt & Celebrating!

This week flew by!  Hannah, Kelly & I spent most days racing around the shop pulling patterns, cutting more kits & restocking patterns!  We had so many orders to ship today, that 40 minutes wasn't enough for the gal to finish our stash...so she had to send us out to the manual station!  Needless to say, we could rock working at the post office now!  We've got this down!!!

I'm happy to say a few more new patterns got done & sent out today including the Autumn Pillow!  So if you ordered a couple patterns that weren't ready - they are or will be done today!  I'm so glad the covers finally got printed and delivered!  It's hard not being able to control that part!  But then again- there were over 70 new patterns that did get completed at one time- so I think that's pretty awesome!!!  And thanks for enjoying the new patterns!  I'm so happy you are all loving them!  That's exactly why I do it!!!!  Someone's got to keep you busy stitching!!!!

The "Mystery" BOM kits are also restocked {including block 1} and the website will be updated this weekend!  So now you can order the first block that has never been available until now!  The charms also came in today so we got all, but a few orders out of the Americana Crow on Spool & Typewriter Charm orders! We are also cutting more of those kits...so be sure to download that free pattern either way and enjoy it!

I was looking at some old pictures and came across some from my grandma & grandpa's 40th wedding anniversary and thought I'd share them with you!  Do you notice the commemorative quilt that we made for them!?  I think I was around 12 when I drew my block with my mom.  She embroidered it, along with several other blocks in the quilt!  I'm hoping to go over to my aunt Batty's house and get a closer look at it as I can't quite remember what I drew!  I'll share more close ups if I get that opportunity!  It's really quite special!  Do any of you still create these commemorative quilts for special occasions?  I know the t-shirt quilts are quite popular for graduates... Let me know!  I'm fascinated by these quilts and signature quilts!

This week Grace went to Kentucky with a friend & her family...so we will celebrating with just the 3 of us!  We have no set plans... except to work a bit each day at the shop!  I'm sure food, road tripping & fireworks will be in there somewhere!  I'll keep you posted!!!  What are your plans?!?!! 

Don't forget to head over to our FB page for "LUCKY" Friday!!!  It's a great way to kick start the Holiday weekend and try your luck at winning a yard of Americana cotton prints from my Humble Beginning fabric line!!!!   I thought it would be perfect to give away on this 4th of July weekend!!  Good luck! Hope you have a great Holiday weekend filled with good food & food friends/family!

New Patterns & Yummy Recipe!


This weekend was so enjoyable!  We spent most of yesterday in the garden!  For some odd reason my marigolds were not growing well in my side gardens.  So out they went and zinnias replaced them!  

After we finished, we cleaned up and headed to the local pre 4th of July celebration in our neighboring suburb!  We weren't there long as we had to pick up our girls from a birthday party & at Zero Gravity!  But we still enjoyed the sights & smells of the fair!

I've also recived some new pattern covers!  Here are a couple new patterns that will soon be ready!  

I'm also looking for some fun recipes for a bridal shower I'm hosting!  I came across this one and thought I'd share it with you!  Enjoy!

Summerthyme Blog Hop Wraps Up! My day!



 Welcome to the final day of our wonderful Summerthyme Blog Hop! 
First off, I would like to thank each of the other designers for joining in and taking time out of their busy schedules to create a free design for you, work through the kinks (as we always seem to have something come up) - especially when it comes to formatting the artwork.... and share a family favorite recipe with you! 
Without you designers...
there would be no hop! 
 
I would also like to thank each of YOU readers for stopping by!  I know many of you waited with anticipation for each new day of the hop!  I am so glad you all have been enjoying it... and also enjoying getting to know each of us designers a bit more! 
Please, please, make sure and give them thanks and/or follow our blogs!  We really do appreciate your support and really need to know if this is something worth doing for you!  Without hearing from you or liking our blogs... we really have no clue!  And - a lot of work really does go into this (even though we make it look easy!!! LOL!).  So please share and help spread the word about our fantastic blog hop! 
We LOVE sharing & creating for you all!!!
 
Up today is me, Miss Buttermilk Basin! 
I, too, have been waiting patiently to share my day/project with each of you!  Each of the past 9 days felt like a mini party here in blogland!  We  enjoyed numerous mediums of handwork, shared some delicious recipes and we also learned who has a green thumb and does not!!! {LOL!}... and most importantly, we have had fun & got inspired! 
So...let's continue celebrating with my scrumptious "No Bake" Banana Split Dessert Recipe & my darling Americana wool pillow tuck I created just for you!  It will be perfect to stitch up while enjoying some porch sitting
{of course, with a nice mason jar full of Sheri's FAV summer beverage!}  I hope you enjoy my day & project... Have a wonderful summer filled with lots of memories!
 
PS:  Don't forget to follow me on Instagram (I post there a LOT!), Facebook, (I post daily & give away goods weekly each "LUCKY" Friday!) and on my website (always posting new designs & the FREE "Mystery" BOM!)...

Here are my thoughts on summer!
Favorite Summer Memory:
Toss up between attending the Roseau County Fair (exhibiting in 4-H) & sitting on the porch with my Great Grandma Lily watching the vehicles go by.  We would take turns pretending to get one of the cars that drove by!  We sure would get some good laughs about some of "our" cars!!!  It was awesome, too, seeing the "big" fair trucks with the rides coming to town! 
Pretty big thing for a small town!
On the 4th of July we:
Start the day off with a parade... and end with fireworks in our front yard with the neighbors! 
(I love the snakes that grow & smoke!!! LOL!)
Green Thumb or Not? 
Yes!  Not half as good as my mother & grandmas though!  I am not as patient as they are.  But I am working on enjoying the growth process!  I just redid my memory garden in honor of my mother... Here is the start of it!
 
Favorite Fair Food:
Tie: Cheese Curds & Crepes!
Favorite Summer Drink & Farmer’s Market Find:
Raspberry Lemonade & rhubarb at the Farmer's Market!  Love me some rhubarb! 
Summer Designs You are Working on:
NONE!  I am skipping summer and going right to the Autumn in the Country Barn Event & the Caribbean Cruise projects for the February!!
Favorite Quote:
 
 
NOTE:  Use 1/2 cup of butter & 1/4 cup of sugar. 
We also used 4 bananas and graham cracker crumbs on the top instead of walnuts!
