Look what's coming...

Here are some of the new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon. With the holiday weekend coming up this week, a new project might be in order. If not, maybe these will inspire you to finish what you have started. Remember: Christmas will be here sooner than you think (only 126 days).

The Stitch and Frame Shop will be CLOSED on Monday September 7th (Labor Day).
Since it is a holiday (and my house will be filled with extra family members), I will not be blogging next Monday. I'll try to do something on Tuesday but If I don't, I'll resume blogging on Monday Sept. 14th.

A new collection of designs in the "square.ology" series. This new group features an autumn theme.  A portion of the chart can be pivoted 3 times (stitched 4 times) to complete a fun project - a new twist in counted cross-stitch!

Happy Monday!

It's the beginning of another week and a really busy one for me. It's only Monday morning and I'm already wishing it was the weekend. Well, being this busy should hopefully make the week fly right by (at least I hope it does). 

There are some new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon. Take a peek below to see what is on the way.

School has started again (at least for my kids).  Today was their first day back after what seemed like a very short summer. Where does the time go? Christmas will be here before we know it. With that thought in mind, now would be a great time to start your holiday stitching and there are many new designs on the way. Take a look.............
