So many new projects....not enough time to stitch them.

This week has just flown by. I can't believe that it's Friday already. I did not get a chance to blog last week so there is quite a bit of information to share. As I sit here waiting for the rain to arrive, I will let you know what is on the way. There are so many great new things it makes me want to rush out and start something new but I promised myself to finish what I already started before beginning something else. I wonder how long that will last!

The latest creation from JABC is called the "make-do" pincushion kits. After making the pincushion, you simply drop it into any container that you already have. The instructions given in the kits produce a flat bottomed pincushion that can stand on its own or you can pop it into a mug, an old jar ring or whatever else you have on hand. Each make-do kit comes with hand-dyed wool, roving, buttons, pack of Just Pins and all instructions. It also includes instructions for the Pin-It ornaments. If you would prefer a smaller project, the Pin-It ornaments are available separately.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Lizzie Kate has created a fun little kit called "A Little Love".It includes 32ct. Flax linen, a hand-dyed rose flower button and tiny pale pink beads. The finished size is approximately 3.5" x 3.5".  I don't have a picture now but will post one as soon as I can. It sounds really cute and it's not too big.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and is able to spend some time stitching!

Thanks a million!

Everyone at The Stitch and Frame Shop would like to say "THANK YOU" to all of our wonderful customers. You are all wonderful and we look forward to helping you again in 2012. For those of you who came to the pre-inventory sale on Dec. 31st, an extra big thank you goes to you. It was a very crowded and hectic few hours but everyone was extremely patient even while standing in the long checkout line. So from all of us at The Stitch and Frame Shop...."Thanks for your patronage and have a happy new year".

Take a look at some of the new designs that have already been released this year (of course, more will be coming).

  • Oh Baby! - With this design, you will be able to create your own personalized baby sampler. The pattern includes 16 motifs, an alphabet and numbers for you to use.
  • What We Are - Inspiration Boxer - This kit includes lambswool linen, hand dyed buttons and a bonus design.
  • A new Flip-it series - "More or Less" Double Flips - This series was based on the saying "less of this and more of that" and will have a sampler influence.

Little House Needleworks will be doing another set of twelve ornaments this year. "Blessed", the first in this series, will be released sometime this month. Please let the shop know if you would like to sign up for this series.

Well, that's about all I have for now but remember, keep checking the website for new designs and accessories. I can't possibly put everything in the blog. Have a great weekend!
