Book Review: Buttermilk Basin’s Ornament Extravaganza II

Just a bit ago I told you about the book Buttermilk Basin’s Ornament Extravaganza from Stacy West. Well I got so excited about that one even though I haven’t made anything from the book yet…I decided to check out the companion book Buttermilk Basin’s Ornament Extravaganza II.

I liked that this book had some ornaments that would be very easy for beginners. All three of these would be great.

I’ve always thought I should be one of those grandma’s that makes an ornament for each of their grandkids every year. So far, I’ve not tackled that. Somehow I can’t imagine making 10 ornaments each year, but if I have 10 grandkids, that’s how it would work.

If you are one of those grandma’s this book would be a great option. There are so many patterns in it.

I really like some of these as they are more Winter than Christmas.

These snowmen would be great for Winter too.

I love the snowman. The Santa is cute too…

This is another set that would be good for Winter and not just Christmas.

I love all the photography and setting in the book. All are so cute!! They decorate and display them just as I would want to.

These little gingerbreads are so cute!!

I have a box of wool upstairs. I wish it was more organized so I could have easier access to it. Hmm. Maybe that’s something I should do as I really do enjoy wool applique. AH HA!! Just as I typed that out, I have an idea on how I could better organize it. Watch for the coming …or at least I hope I actually get to it.

It looks like a great book. I haven’t bought it yet, but boy am I tempted. To make it worse, I went to the Stitchery Nook and they now have wool . That makes it even more tempting.

If you’re interested, you can find the book HERE.

    1. I don’t think it makes a difference. I personally would make them in wool because I have a tote of wool that needs to get used.

  1. Super cute! I think I might put in a request at our library to get this. Thus far they’ve accommodated my requests. Thank you for the review!

  2. I used to make ornaments every year for neighbors, friends, my quilt groups and of course for my family. I usually picked one special ornament and made the same for everyone. Some years that could be anywhere from 20 – 50 ornaments. I wish I could post a photo of some of them.

  3. I have been making ornaments for my grand kids sine 2000. I have 5 grands, and have started also making for the grandnieces and nephew, I’m up to 13 ornaments a year and that doesn’t count the ones I make for myself. For me, the hard part is the finishing into an actual ornament. But, I’m getting better. I used to send them to someone to do the finishing, but over tiime her prices just got to be too much for me to pay.
