Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was perfect. I was able to stitch, enjoy the gorgeous weather and visit with my mom. I could not have asked for better. 

I do not have a lot to share with you today but I do have some. Keep in mind, the Nashville Needlework Market is coming the first of March so many designers are getting ready for that. As "sneak peeks" pop up, I'll start posting them so stay tuned.


From Abby Rose Designs
A great design for every family.

Oh My Deer

From Nora Corbett (Mirabilia)
Two new fairies in the Pixie Blossom series. I like Inkberry Holly. She is so different.

This is a new 9 part series beginning in March. It will feature eight well-known historical figures: Martha, John, Betsy, Nathan, Paul, Abigail, Dolley and Patrick. There will be a 9th design that can serve as the "center piece" if you choose to stitch all the designs together.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It has been quite a while since my last blog and since the last post it has also gotten a lot colder. Winter has arrived. Burrrrrr! After "surviving" this past weekend of winter weather (a little bit of ice with a little bit of snow), I can now say...."BRING ON SPRING"! 

We have finished inventory at the shop and things are still a little bare but do not despair (OMG...I made a rhyme.....too funny), we are getting things reordered as quickly as possible. 

Just in case you need a new project for the year, take a look below at some new designs that will be arriving soon.

From Lizzie Kate
Take a look at the new Flip-It series. This are going to be great quick and easy to stitch seasonal designs. 

Celebrate with Charm: Love         Celebrate with Charm: Luck

A new series for 2017 with 7 Celebrate with Charm Flip- its: Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas. Each design features a single word to symbolize the holiday. The color palette for all 7 designs is coordinated, so you can stitch the whole series together horizontally if you desire. Each Celebration Flip-it will include an antique gold charm and will be shown stitched on 32ct Light Mocha Belfast linen. Valentines & St Patrick's Day are the first two to be released in this series and are pictured above.

What a beautiful winter pillow. I just love the colors.
Also, a new addition to the block part series: snow. A word the weather forecasters in our area need to strike from their vocabulary.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is now less than a week away and except for some groceries, I am ready! This is truly a first for me. I'm usually rushing around at the last minute. I may actually get to stitch a little bit before family arrives on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Everyone at The Stitch and Frame Shop would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.  

Take a look at some new designs (and even a new series) that are on the way. It's not too early to pick out a new project for 2017. 

I will not be blogging next Monday since the shop will be closed. We will also be closed on January 2, 2017 for inventory so it will be January 9, 2017 before I blog again. Hopefully, there will be a lot to share. Have a great holiday!!!!


From Hands on Design
This is a new series featuring the 12 Days of Christmas. It will start in January and finish in July. There will be 6 total charts with 2 designs in each chart. I may actually start this series. I could even have them all done by next Christmas. (maybe)
