Look what's coming in May!

April is almost gone and May is on the way. Time to get outside and spruce up those lawns and gardens. The weather has been really nice lately although storms are supposed to come in tomorrow and Wednesday. Now is the perfect time for outdoor work before it gets too hot. When the heat finally settles in (and we now it will), staying inside will be a much better option for most of us. Why not start a new cross stitch project.
Here are some new designs that will be arriving in May.


From Blackbird Designs
The new Loose Feathers design is on the way and it is beautiful. Also a wonderful new patriotic sampler is coming and it is definitely going into my stash.

Nice weather...finally!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I spent a beautiful day with my family. After a very wet and gloomy Saturday, Sunday's weather was perfect. Due to working and visiting with family, I wasn't able to get any stitching done last week. Hopefully, this week will be different.

Happy Easter

The weather this weekend was gorgeous and I was actually able to enjoy some of it on Sunday afternoon. I was also able to get some stitching done (yeah!!). It won't be long and I'll be wanting to start a new project. Of course, I have projects at home but I'll probably pick out something new since the shop has so many new designs that I like.

Take a look below at some of the designs that will be arriving in the shop soon.

From Erica Michaels
All of these designs are part of the "petites" collection which means that they are stitched on 40ct. silk gauze. They are absolutely stunning on the silk  but you can stitch them on larger count fabrics (and they still look good). 

    4 Seasons- Summer                             Blossom & Bloom

Olde Irish Blessing

Christ's Cross

From Scissor Tail Designs
What beautiful designs for a spring/Easter tree or wreath. Doesn't look like they would take too long to stitch.
