Happy Thanksgiving!

Only 3 days until Thanksgiving...yay! Is everyone ready? I think I am. House is cleaned and hopefully, just one more run to the grocery store and then all I need are for the family to arrive. Some are coming today and others on Wednesday and Thursday. I am ready for some good food and family fun. 

The Stitch and Frame Shop wishes everyone a very blessed Thanksgiving. We will be closed on Wednesday Nov. 21 and Thursday Nov. 22 but open regular hours on Friday and Saturday. Want to avoid the typical Black Friday shopping areas? Then come by here and pick out a quick project or maybe even a finished model to give as a gift. We are currently having a model sale. There are a variety of items: pillows, ornaments, framed pieces and more. The models are cash only (no debit or credit cards). 

To help with some stitching inspiration, here are some new designs that will be arriving soon.

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!

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

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.

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.
