10 Days til Christmas..but who's counting?

Only 10 more days until Christmas and I'm still not ready. I have shopping that needs to be finished and the only time I will have to get it done will be Saturday (yes, this Saturday...the last Saturday before Christmas...uuuugh!!!!). Luckily, I don't have much to get but I will still have to deal with the crowds (oh, and my husband...he will be going with me.....even more fun for me).

 I'm not sure if I will get a chance to blog again before Christmas, so if I don't, I want to wish everyone a very joyous holiday.

 I'm going to post some new designs that are on the way (maybe a great new year project can be found). Also, make sure to check out our "Holiday Hours"...I will post them at the end of the blog and they will also be on the front page of our website.

ON THE WAY...........

Cute..cute..cute! A must have Christmas design to do for NEXT year.

"Old Colonial" is the 1st design in the "Sampler Tree Ornament" series and I believe this series is off to a great start. Of course, the sheep look good as well.

17 Days til Christmas!

Christmas is rapidly approaching and I wish it would slow down a little...I'm not ready yet. Well, I was able to get my house decorated this past weekend including the tree. That was a major accomplishment. What I still have to do is....SHOP. I did some shopping online but there are a few items that I need to go shopping for. Not sure when this shopping will happen but I have 16 days to get it done (no pressure).

New designs are on the way. Take a look, you might find a project to give as a gift or even something for yourself.


From CM Designs
Ok, I have to say it...these designs are as cute as a bug.

Very Thankful!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I can honestly say mine was great. I am so thankful for my family (they are simply the best). With that said, I am also thankful that may house is down to four people instead of nine. 

Oh, guess what? Only 24 days until Christmas. Just thought that needed to be said and NO I'm not ready either. 

Here are some new designs that are on the way. Not too many this week.

3 days til Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is only 3 days away but it's only 2 days until my family arrives. I spent Saturday night and most of Sunday cleaning. The house is probably as good as it will get (which is a whole lot cleaner than usual). I went grocery shopping yesterday and needless to say, my bill was a tad higher than normal (feeding 13 people will do that). Don't get me wrong, I'm really looking forward to their visit. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and in case you want to get out and go shopping (specifically at The Stitch and Frame Shop), the Thanksgiving holiday hours are:

Wednesday November 26 we will close at 3:00pm
Thursday November 27 (Thanksgiving Day) we will be CLOSED
Friday November 28 & Saturday November 29 we will be open regular hours
