The weekend is here....and so is SPRING BREAK!

Well, after school today, my kids will offically be on spring break. They are excited to say the least. I'm just glad that I won't have to drag them out of bed for a week. Hopefully, they will enjoy being outside and playing with their friends so that I can get in some stitching time. I haven't stitched at all this week and my fingers are getting twitchy. Not to mention with new patterns coming into the shop, my project list is growing rapidly. Here are some new things that have just arrived or will be here soon.

Calico Sampler Series
This series will be presented in 9 leaflets (3 letters in each). It features the letters of the alphabet with a different border around each one. It's stitched on Weeks Dye Works Straw linen using floss from The Gentle Thread. The overall stitch count for the completed Calico Sampler (all nine charts) is 146w x 470h.
The first chart (ABC) is available now and the second one (DEF) is coming out soon.

This is going to be a beautiful sampler when finished. Carol has already started stitching it and I hope she brings it into the shop for a preview soon. I wonder if she'll be able to keep up with the designs as they become available? Better stitch fast Carol!

From By the Bay Needleart
On the last blog, I mentioned that By the Bay was starting a new series - Birds of a Funky Feather . Well, now I have a picture that will give you an idea of what they will look like. I think they are rather cute. I sort of like them better than the flowers.
