All I Want For Christmas Is....For It To Stop Snowing & Melt!

Unnamed

Seeew,

We are snowed in out here in the Pacific Northwest but I happened to have this picture saved on my phone! When it comes to Christmas gift decor, one thing is true....we only feature quality decor items. From mercury trees to adorable "gliterry" snowmen, the Shoppe is full of Christmas cheer! To celebrate the season in today's post it is only fitting that I hand it over to Mariah.

234,000,000 views! That's just...insane.

 

The only thing I think of when I see anything about Mariah Carey (other than that unfortunate NYE debacle) is how when she came to Disney it was a visit to Splash Mountain at the Magic Kingdom, then onto Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios (back then it was Disney's M.G.M. Studios) and then she was out of there. My friend Zorida was her VIP Guide multiple times and at one point she had to use the drive thru at Kentucky Fried Chicken because Mariah wanted some crispy chicken. She wore a headset and sang her own songs the entire drive. Diva in the drive thru! Hilarious.

Anyhoo...I'm off to see if I can get my car out of the snow! Yes, we've been snowed in seeew if you've called the Shoppe and we haven't answered, that's why. We will be open an extra Sunday to help some of those who weren't able to get to the Shoppe this week! Sunday, December 18 is the extra day seeew come join us from 12pm-4pm!

Stay seeew-cial ~ Brian

Small Project Holiday!

Cookie-Exchange-12-Bundle (1)

Seeew...

Merry Christmas to ya! 'Tis the season to share merriment and cheer seeew I wish you a Merry Christmas this year! As you can see above...I've been busy. I have created a few Christmas themed Fat Quarter bundles of 12 for $39 ea which are available in our on-line store here. Do you know how many cute small things you can make with this pile of cuteness? But first...we must sing and wish for snow!

 

After following me for this many years, you should know that during this time of year I'm going to load up on the Christmas music!

Pictured below is the Mothership's adorable all new Christmas Silo Barn Table Runner Kit! It's seeew new it hasn't even been quilted yet!

Christmas-Silos (1)

 Complete kits are available here which contain specific fabric identification list, cutting diagrams, quilt top and binding fabrics.  44 different fabrics have been carefully hand selected to create this stunning Silo Barn Runner including some retired pieces. You will need the book Farm Girl Vintage to complete the project. The price is well worth it considering that for our Barn Girl Block of the Month, just one barn block is $29.95. You're getting far more fabric and all of Jan's cutting diagrams! There are only five left!

Neeed more ideas?

Small-Project-Day

See! Just soak up all of these super cute small projects with patterns available here on our website. I must point out that whether you order them from the designer or us....it's going to cost you the same.

And here's the thing....these patterns have sat around the Shoppe all season long, but I just had to gather them up, take a picture and show you. LOL. It's like magic! Suddenly everyone is inspired. If I had emoji's this is where I would insert the laughing face.

Want to see more inspiration???

Juniper-FQ-Bundle

Ever since we arrived on the scene in 2005 (eleven years ago!!!) we have carried a gift/home decor selection for nearly every season, especially at Christmas! I cannot get enough of this Letter to Santa holder! Nevermind my new 12 Fat Quarter Bundle for Juniper Berry....just focus on that Letter Holder. As you can see instead of letters, I have decided to send a Fat Quarter Bundle for Mrs. Claus to get busy with!

One super cute Christmas quilt please. Thanks.

I must add that I adore the vintage green wood wall knob hook. Just imagine these mounted in your entryway or mud room with your favorite Christmas quilts hanging on them! Precious-ville U.S.A. They are available in aqua, red and green. The cream is sold out. Hardware is included p.s.

Mugs-And-Plates

When I was little my mom always had coordinating mugs and dishes to make the holidays extra special. I consider myself fortunate to have a mom that went all out while I was growing up, because much of what I do now is a reflection of seeew much she taught me! This year we discovered these adorable retro plates and mugs which would be perfect with cookies and your favorite warm beverage! You could even fill a mug with some super cute Fat Quarters and give it to your favorite quilter! Just an idea for a gift under $20! The retro plates can be found here, and the mugs can be found here. They are microwave and dishwasher safe! Aren't I helpful? Just sharing those features and benefits. LOL.

That's it for today kids. I'll have a recap of our 8th annual Homespun & Holly soon! ~ Brian

New Shades of Grey Swoon Quilt Kit!

Holly Day Greetings Friends! Swoon-Quilt-Kit (1)

Seeew...
 
It was a snow day yesterday, seeew I was only able to access some of my content. Oh...darn.

Today we are featuring our new Shades of Grey Swoon Quilt Kit! Jan just finished cutting fabrics for just a handful of kits so be sure to get yours now! This kit sells out everytime it is offered! Our complete kit includes ample fabric to complete the quilt top and binding. The pattern is also included and available with our kit only at this time. 

  Swoon-Quilt-Kit (2)


I just love how the "Mothership" packages our quilt kits. They are like presents. This lady once told me she buys kits so that her children won't be left with the burden of trying to figure out what she was going to make when she passed away. How thoughtful of her! I can't tell you how many people call us with the stash a loved one left behind. Often times they just want to donate it, seeew why do that to your loved one? A kit solves that entire problem. LOL.
 
Swoon-Quilt-2
BTW...we backed ours in a beautiful grey flannel. Don't forget you save 15% off your selected backing when purchased with your kit! To select one of our grey flannels click here. To select fabrics from the top of the quilt click here.
