Spooktacular Designs!

Since Halloween is almost here, I wanted to show some new "spooky" designs. Okay, they are not really spooky but they are Halloween related. Since there is not much stitching time to be ready for this Halloween (it's 3 days away), go ahead and get a jump start on next year.

Have a great weekend!

Monday, October 24, 2011

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. The beach trip that I went on with my family was great!!! Nobody wanted to leave because we were having such a wonderful time but the money was disappearing at a very quick rate so it was time to go. I was able to get a small amount of stitching done but not nearly enough to get anything finished. Oh well, I guess my Halloween project will be ready for next year. Now, I want to share with you what is going on at the shop.

Guess what?........It's FALL!

Yes, it's fall. It is the time of year when the weather starts to cool off and the leaves start to change their color and drop from the trees. Most people enjoy going to the mountains this time of year to see the beautiful colors and I enjoy it as well, however the place I really enjoy going in the fall is.....the beach. Yes, I am going to the beach with my family this weekend and I am so looking forward to it. Before I go home and start getting things ready for this great trip, I wanted to let you know about new designs that have arrived in the shop as well as, some that are coming soon.

New "Sticks" kits

Check out these funky and colorful kits that sort of have a four seasons theme. I think my favorite one is "Cozy In". It makes me crave a large mug og hot chocolate.
