Short & Sweet!

Good morning! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was very relaxing. I spent most of Saturday stitching. I opted not to start a new project but am working on a sampler that I started many years ago. I will work on it for a while and then start something new (not sure what yet). I was able to finish my mermaid last week. I think she turned out nice. I can't wait to see her framed. Take a look at her at the end of the blog.

This is going to be a short post this week as there is not much for me to show. I will however, show what I found that will be arriving soon.

I would love to be in that cottage right about now.

Ok, maybe I'm a bit strange, but I think "Frank" is rather cute.  

Frankly My Dear

From Cherry Hill Stitchery
I love both of these sayings. You could add a name and date to the "Leave an Imprint" design and it would make a nice birth sampler.  Just a thought.

it looks fuzzy.

Coming Soon!

I hope everyone had a nice weekend (mine went by too fast). Of course, yesterday was a gloomy rainy day but I actually enjoyed it. I spent the day cleaning, doing laundry and yes....stitching. I tried to get my mermaid done but I fell a little short. The only thing left to do are some beads at the end of the mermaid tail and I WILL get those on this afternoon. YEAH! a finished what to do?

Take a look at some of the new designs that are on the way.

Good evening all! I know that I usually blog on Monday mornings but today was one of those crazy days where my schedule was totally messed up. I would have waited and blogged tomorrow but I'm not sure if tomorrow will be any better and I wanted to make sure I posted the new items that will be arriving soon. So, with that in mind, take a look below....

New designs that are coming soon........

From Rosewood Manor
Two beautiful new samplers from Rosewood Manor. I can't decide which one I like better.

Always Remember

Love this! You don't see many patterns for grandpas. I might have to do this for my father-in-law who totally enjoys building and playing with model trains. He is definitely still a little boy.

A Quick Post!

What a beautiful morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. I managed to survive going to Carowinds with the kids. Everyone had a great time although my feet would probably disagree. They were tired and hurting by the time we left. Of course, I had planned to get my mermaid finished last week but as always I did not. Well, there is always this week.

FYI........The Spring Custom Framing Special is starting this Saturday April 11th and will end on April 28th. During this time, you receive 20% off a total custom frame order(s). A 50% deposit is required and no rush orders will be discounted.
