Something Different

Happy Monday! Today's blog is going to be a little different. The Nashville Needlework Market starts in 11 days and I have been busily trying to get new designs posted on our website. There is quite a bit more I need to post so I'm going to cut this a little short so I can work on posting all this wonderful new stuff. 

Remember to check the "what's new" section on our website often (I'm adding more today) and if you see something you would like to have, please let the shop know. Peggy will gladly add it to her extra long shopping list.

Did you think I was going to stop there and not post any pictures? Wrong. I thought I'd post a few of my favorite designs that are releasing in Nashville and then I'd stop and go work on the website. 


Bless Us from Lila's Studio

Frogs in Your Underpants from The Nebby Needle

It reads: "May the light always find you on a dreary day.
When you need a home may you find your way.
May you always have courage to take a chance
and never find frogs in your underpants".

Life, Liberty & Happiness from Mani Di Donna

This is a LIMITED EDITION design.


Remember...keep checking the website!

Happy Valentine's Day....a little early

Happy Valentine's Day (2 days early). You know what would make a great Valentine? A new cross stitch project. So treat yourself to a special Valentine's gift and pick out something new to do. It doesn't matter if you already have a few started. One more won't hurt. 

There are a few new designs on the way for me to share but please keep checking the "what's new" section on our website. I have and will be adding more designs that will be releasing in Nashville (the first of March). 


From Homespun Elegance
Three new Christmas ornaments. My favorite is the snowman. He is just too cute along with his woodland friends.

From Heartstring Samplery
These fobs are so sweet and would be very quick to stitch.

From Plum Street Samplers
Plum Street is starting a new series called "Noah's Christmas Ark".  It will be released in 6 charts (2 designs per chart). Each design can be stitched individually or all together (4 blocks across, 3 blocks down).  I may have to start this series. I love the crocodiles and giraffes.

Coming Soon!

It's Monday again. How did that happen and where did my weekend go? Weekends just go by way too fast. For those who watched, did you enjoy the Super Bowl? I actually did. It was a great game and for once, the team I was pulling for won! Yay....Eagles! I even managed to get a bit of stitching done while I watched (that was the best part).

There are quite a few new designs on the way...take a look!

This is the 6th design in the Loose Feathers - For the Birds series.

Happy Monday!

For those who had them, did you enjoy the snow days? My son certainly did. Although, we now have 2 days of school to make up...ugh! I enjoyed watching the snow. It was very beautiful coming down. I didn't go outside except one time because it was just to cold. Glad we are finally having a warming trend. I am so ready for spring. This has been an awfully cold winter.

Here are some new designs that are on the way.........

From Just Nan
"Frosty Winter Mouse" is the 5th and final design in the Mouse in a House Limited Edition series and I think it is the cutest of them all. The snowman mini slide makes a wonderful accessory.
