Happy June!


June already!? It's hard to believe that it's almost summer. I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend. I must say that I really enjoyed having Monday off. I only wish that I had gotten more stitching done.

I want to let you know that I am having surgery on Wednesday (a hysterectomy). It may be a while before I blog again. Once I start feeling better, I may be able to blog from home but if not, I should resume sometime in July. Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery are most welcome.

In other news, Peggy sent an email out on Friday afternoon announcing her plan to retire. It was a very hard decision for her to make but she truly feels that it is time. For now though, it is still business as usual. We are still framing and ordering supplies. With that in mind, take a peek at some new designs on the way.

Ok, this design is definitely my favorite one in the series. Love that strawberry.

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was wonderful. I spent the weekend in the NC mountains with my mom, sister and daughter. It wes a great girls weekend. the weather was perfect and to be honest, I didn't want to leave. I did more hiking than stitching but that's okay since I need the exercise. I can catch up with my stitching at home. Spending time with my family was much needed.

The Stitch and Frame shop will be CLOSED on Monday May 31st in observance of Memorial Day ( blog next week).

Even though restrictions have been lessened, The Stitch and Frame Shop still requires everyone to wear a mask while inside. Thank you for your understanding. 

From Blue Flower Stitching
Wow, I love all these designs. The Saltwater Scrapbook is a collaboration with Lindy Stitches. There will be 9 block designs in total (4 designs in part 1 and 5 in part 2 from Lindy Stitches).
