10 Days til Thanksgiving!

Ten days and counting. Oh my, who said Thanksgiving could come this quickly? I have a lot to do and not much time in which to do it. Looks like my stitching time is going to suffer. I am working on one project that I would like to have finished before this weekend. There is not very much left so hopefully, I will be able to finish it. 

Also, please check the website for our holiday hours. They will be posted either today or tomorrow.

Now, for what you have been waiting designs!

From Kathy Barrick Designs
Two great Christmas designs. I can't decide which one I like best. Therefore, both designs will be added to the stash.

What fun pillows/pincushions. The designs are cute and they would all be very quick to stitch.

It's November!

Happy November! Only 17 days left until Thanksgiving. Yay!! I love Thanksgiving. Despite all the cleaning and shopping that I will need to do, I am really looking forward to it. I will also lose some stitching time but that's ok since I will have a house full of family. 

Here are some new designs that will be arriving soon...take a look.

From Hands on Design
Another addition to the Around the Holiday series...."I Hear the Bells". "A Year of Celebrations" is one chart with 14 different designs. These could be finished in so many different ways.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is this Wednesday and that means October is almost over.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Wow, seems like just yesterday it was summer time. Oh well, time just keeps flying by. 

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I want to apologize again for having to cancel the estate sale this past Friday but the weather was just awful. We were able to have it on Saturday and sold much of what we had. Thank you to those who were able to come and support this sale. 

Here are some new designs heading this way....take a look!

From Plum Street Samplers
A great new collection of designs from Paulette. My most favorite is Gobble Gob. How cute are those turkeys? Also, Scary Two was previously released as a chart with thread. Now, it has been re-released but as a chart only.
