Lucky Friday! MN Shop Hop & More!


"LUCKY" Friday is here at last!  I'm hoping this week has been a good one for you!  It's been a hectic, but great one on my end!  This week consisted of working around dental, Ortho & allergy appts for the girls... and a facial, hair & pedi for me!!!  I've been running around like a hot mess!  Time to get my groove back on!!! Haha!!!  Luckily, I had Kelly & Hannah working to keep us rolling while I was away!  

Then the truck had to go in for cosmetic surgery!  So we were down a car and had a dickens of a time getting a rental... because of all the storms we've had, there has bee a lot of hail damage to vehicles!  Needless to say... today GW picked up one to keep until the truck is done late next week!  Yeehaw!!!  He and Hannah are out shipping orders while I'm getting a little relaxation time in before we load the trailer & set up shop tomorrow at The Country Loft!  I'm so excited to be able to have a ton of my product line in a quilt shop for the MN State Shop Hop!  My fabric will even be there, kits & wool!  So if you are in MN be sure to make a stop there for some BB goods!  I'll post pics on Monday once it's set up!  Then on Tuesday, I fly out to The Rabbit's Lair!  That is going to be an awesome time teaching & enjoying a new area I've never traveled too!!  Hope the students are ready for woolly goodness!!!!  I'll try to post often of the happenings!

Since I'm sitting at the salon and can barely move {since I'm getting a pedi}... I'm going to keep this post short!  Before I forget...I've messed up my site trying to put the new Simply Vintage magazine on there for you gals to purchase! So- if you're looking for the new misc patterns... it isn't on there!  I hope to get that fixed, sooner then later!  BTW, the magazine is fantastic this issue!  I'm keeping a copy of this one for myself!!!!  Hope you get a copy for yourself too!

Last night, after work, we hit the Anoka County Fair with the girls!  I love, love, love fairs!!!  It was s gorgeous night for cheese curds, live music & rides!  So speaking of fairs... Head on over to the Facebook page, leave a comment for a chance to win some great patterns!  Have a great weekend!

Lucky Friday, Fabric & Kits!!!!

It's "LUCKY" Friday time gals over on our FB page!  Yahoo!!!!  Time to give away some patterns featuring my new Humble Beginnings fabric line!  And YES!  If you haven't noticed it's now available in 1/2 yard increments of my website!  So many of you have been asking for it...I'm carrying the whole line!  I've been sewing with it and it's still as gorgeous as ever!  Let me know if you've made anything with it yet!  I just love it!

I'm happy to say that the bridal shower I hosted last week was a grand success!  Even though it was a ton of work... I really did enjoy every minute of it!  And seeing how thrilled & grateful the couple were of it, was the "al a mode" on the pie!!!  This week brought me designing their wedding invitations & response cards!  They're based around a "heart thumb print" of theirs!  How sweet is that?  Tomorrow they will be printed and I will come up with a creative packaging concept!  Somedays... I'd LOVE to be a party planner!!!! 

Your "Mystery" BOM's are amazing gals!  I'm thrilled to see all the variations I get weekly from all across the globe!  I love being able to share my talent with you each month and I am so excited to start seeing the birdhouse blocks being shared & posted to my BB page!  You post them... I'll share them!  I also think it's neat that some of you are working on them with your good friends, siblings and mothers!  That just brings me joy!!!  Oh- all kits are in stock & available on the website for those of you who are new & prefer kits!  

Speaking of kits... well, buttons!  I'm excited to let you know I have button packages designed exclusively for the Merrie Halloween & Merrie Christmas woolen quilts!  They will be on the website shortly!  I think it's awesome to be able to offer this as I get so many requests for the exact buttons I use.  Plus, getting "non" shiny buttons in the small sizes can be quite a challenge!  So I've got it covered for you!  

Many of you have been asking about Oliver!  I'm happy to say that within this last week and a half he's been getting back to his old self, gaining weight & getting his playful spirit back!  He's happy & much healthier!  Most (nice) days I try to get him outside with me for some"bird" watching!  He LOVES to bird watch!!!'  Bella still has a very bad attitude and is VERY unfriendly & aggressive towards him.... We continue to keep them separated.  Definitely still a work in progress as far as that goes!  Darn kitty freshener a thing didn't work!!!

Today Sally, Kelly & I went road tripping!  My best score was a vintage quilt with gorgeous colors!  I also bought 3 vintage metal picnic baskets (made me think of Yogi Bear there for a minute!!), some old garden tools, old tool bins, more mini succulents, an old horse shoe (I have a thing for them!!!) and an old feed trough!  Yes- everything was a "need"!!! Lol!!!!!  We had a great time!!!!  

Better sign off... Morning kicks off our first shipment of the new BOM kits!  Better be prepped & ready!  Have an  AWESOME weekend everyone!  All my best... Stacy
