Coming soon!

Less than 2 weeks until Thanksgiving...Ughhhhhh. So much to do and so little time but have no fear, I will get everything done. I'm just not going to say how many bodies I'll leave in my
On top of everything, my dryer broke on Sunday. It's at least 17 years old so my husband and I decided it was time to get a new one. Guess what my Christmas present is going to be this year? 

New designs are coming soon. Take a peek at some of them.

From Little House Needleworks
Yay, the final design in the Early American series is on the way. I wonder what type of series she will do next?

What a cute set of Thanksgiving/Autumn designs. Too late to get ready for this year but  a definite must for next year.

From Val's Stuff
Ho ho ho...this adorable Santa ornament is a kit. It includes everything needed to finish it except for the Weeks Dye Works and DMC floss. I just love his felt mustache. 

Coming to Town

From Blackbird Designs
The 5th design in the Loose Feathers "For the Birds" series is finally on the way. I really like the colors she has been using in this series.

I totally agree with the sentiment on the "Worried Ducks". By the end of next week, I probably won't have any feathers left to ruffle.

From The Stitcherhood
Wouldn't this guy make a cute Christmas ornament? I think so. If you wanted to add some color, put a red bead at the end of his nose and make him Rudolph, the Rockin Reindeer.

If I were going to stitch myself a Christmas stocking, I think this would be the one. It is simply gorgeous.

17 Days Until Thanksgiving!

Oh my, only 17 days until Thanksgiving and I'm so not ready. I was planning on having 11 people for dinner but was informed last week that 8 more will be coming. I sure hope I don't end up killing anyone. My stress level is ok for now, but as the day approaches (and the people arrive), I'm sure it will go sky high. I may not have to worry about Christmas this year because Thanksgiving may kill

Need a new project idea? Well, take a look at some of the new designs that will be arriving soon and see if anything strikes your fancy.


From Madame Chantilly
What a sweet Christmas design.

A very elegant looking design. I think this would make a nice Christmas pillow.

Oliver (#1 in the series) was cute but Quincy is even cuter. What an adorable face.

#2 in the Animal Cracker Crumb series

From MTV Designs
I just love the "Christmas Star Pincushion".  What a beautiful design and it even comes with the finishing directions.

These make great ornaments and the best part is that you could get really creative with them by using different fabric and floss colors. The possibilities are endless.

My husband would love the "World Globes". I guess I'd better add that to my stash. I'll get it done for him sometime in the future (way into the future).  I myself would like to do the "Holiday Train".  It is just stunning.

Happy Halloween Eve

Well, tomorrow is Halloween. Time for all the little ghosts and goblins to come begging for candy. My kids have gotten to old for tick or treating which makes me happy and sad at the same time. I now get to stay home and give out candy to the very few kids who come to the door. The best part will be stitching while watching old scary movies on television. 

There are quite a few new designs on the way....take a look.

From Ink Circles
I just love Tracy's mandalas. The colors in "Snowdrops" are stunning. Wouldn't they make great pillows? I think so.

The "Christmas Mouse" is my favorite in the mouse in a house series (at least so far). Remember though, these designs are very limited.
