Happy Spring!

Today is the first day of spring. With the exception of my seasonal allergies, I really like spring. I love the flowers and the bright green leaves as the trees start to fill out again. However, this last cold snap really messed up my azaleas. They had just started to bloom (early due to warm weather) and then BAM....frozen azaleas. Oh well.

Here are a few new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon. 

From Hinzeit
A sweet little cross stitch sampler. The chart even includes the scissors charm.

Two new mermaids in the "petite" collection.

I always thought it was "Shop till You Drop" but "Flip Flop till You Drop" works just as well.

           Music Wings                          Flip Flop till You Drop

The "Laughing Lizards" would make a great companion piece to the "Happy Geckos" that I posted last week.

Back from Market!


Well, Peggy & Carol made it back from Nashville with a car full of goodies. We worked like busy bees last week trying to get everything checked in and put into the store. If you have a chance come by and see what we have, if not, check out the what's new and just arrived sections on our website. If we happen to be out of something, don't worry, we will get it back in. Carol already has quite a large stack of reorders to place.

Amazingly enough, there are things coming out that we did not see or get at market so take a look and see what is on the way............


From Cross Eyed Cricket
These designs are simply "egg"ceptional.  I love the vintage eggs. Wouldn't they look lovely on an Easter Tree?

Just a quick post

Happy Monday! Another week has begun. I just want to remind everyone that Peggy and Carol will be leaving for the Nashville Market on Friday. Please keep checking the "what's new" section on our website to see if there is anything you would like to have. I'll be adding more items this week. If you see something, please let the shop know by Thursday morning (March 2) and Peggy will add it to her shopping list.. They will be leaving early Friday morning.

I will not be posting a blog next week since we will be busy getting everything checked in from market but I'll post again on March 13.

Four totally different designs. "Not My Monkeys" is hilarious and the neutral tones in "Porch Welcome" and "Bless Our Home" are very nice.

Happy President's Day!

Unfortunately, this is not a holiday for me (my kids...yes). For those of you who are off today, I hope you are enjoying your long weekend and are able to get some stitching done.

Peggy and Carol will be going to the Nashville Needlework Market in just 11 days. I'm trying to post as many of the new designs on our website that I can. Please be sure to check the "what's new" section often. If you see something that you would like to have, please let the shop know and Peggy will be glad to add it to her shopping list.

It seems to me that this sampler would be luckier if it had four leaf clovers instead of three leaf but I still like it.
