Brrrr...winter returned!

All I can say is Brrrrrrrr, who turned off the heat? I know its still winter but I was really enjoying the warmer temperatures. If it has to be cold, then why not wish for snow. If it were to snow, I could stay home and stitch like crazy. I have seriously fallen behind on my stitching since Christmas. I need to make up for lost time and a snow day would really help with that.

Coming Soon!

Happy Monday! What a yucky, rainy day. This would be a great day to stay home and stitch, too bad I wasn't able to that. However, I will be stitching tonight. I really want to start something new but I need to get a little farther along on my current project before I start a new one.

The Nashville Needlework Market (March 6-8) will be here before you know it. The designers are busily getting new designs ready for the show and "sneak peeks" will start appearing soon. We will begin posting Nashville items on our website soon but if you find something while surfing the web, please feel free to let the shop know.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Is everyone sticking to their New Years resolutions? I haven't made one yet but I think it should be to stitch more this year. That sounds like a great resolution and one that I won't give up on so! 

With that in mind, here are some new designs that will be arriving soon.
