Wow! It's almost August.

I can't believe it is almost August. This summer has just flown by. My kids go back to school in 3 weeks and they are so thrilled. NOT! I'm not ready for them to go back yet either because some of my stitching time will turn into helping with homework time (ugh). 

Take a look at some new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon. You know, it's not too early to start thinking about the holidays. 

Arriving soon....

Two new "Chalk" designs and two new pillows.  Of all the "Year in Chalk" designs, I think these are are my favorites.
