Summer Already?

Well, Memorial Day has come and gone, so I guess it is unoffically summer. The heat sure has arrived. It is going to be in the 90's all week (YUCK!!). I guess when the kids get out of school (the last day is Thursday), we will be going to the pool...a lot!

Father's Day is coming up fast so let's not forget those wonderful men in our lives. For those who are into college sports, we have some great patterns featuring motifs from Clemson and USC. These would look great framed and hanging on the wall or put on a box top. Trinket boxes from Patches 'n Planks would be great for this. They come in three different sizes (3.5", 4.5" or 6.5" opening).

If you are unsure about something to stitch, or don't have enough time, consider giving a gift certificate. Dad could use it for his own framing (or stitching) needs.

Looking for something to stitch for the summer? Here are some fun and quick project suggestions:

Sunny Days by Prairie Schooler.

The Pursuit of Happiness by My Big Toe

Summer's Sunny Rays (Quick Stitches) by Stoney Creek

Sweet Summer by Barbara Ana Designs 

Tie One On - Summer Days by Pine Mountain Designs

 2011 Monthly Pillow Series: June by Pine Mountain Designs

For those of you who are following the Farmer's Market series from SamSarah Design Studio, Fresh Pear is now available.                                                          

Looking to cool off? Well, maybe stitching some winter project might help. The 2011 Buttons and Beads Winter Series and the 2011 Winter Holiday Collection (both from Mill Hill) are available now. These kits might cool you off and get you thinking about Christmas (yes, it is only just over 6 months away). Check the what's new section of the website for pictures of these holiday kits.

Hope you have a great day and let's stay COOL!
