Merry Christmas!

Christmas is now less than a week away and except for some groceries, I am ready! This is truly a first for me. I'm usually rushing around at the last minute. I may actually get to stitch a little bit before family arrives on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Everyone at The Stitch and Frame Shop would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.  

Take a look at some new designs (and even a new series) that are on the way. It's not too early to pick out a new project for 2017. 

I will not be blogging next Monday since the shop will be closed. We will also be closed on January 2, 2017 for inventory so it will be January 9, 2017 before I blog again. Hopefully, there will be a lot to share. Have a great holiday!!!!


From Hands on Design
This is a new series featuring the 12 Days of Christmas. It will start in January and finish in July. There will be 6 total charts with 2 designs in each chart. I may actually start this series. I could even have them all done by next Christmas. (maybe)

12 Days

What can I say. She is simply stunning. Love the colors.

Only 13 days till Christmas!

Wow.....Christmas will be here in less than 2 weeks. It is hard to believe that this year is almost over. Where does the time go? Due to all the holiday madness, I haven't stitched since before Thanksgiving and it looks like it will be after Christmas before I'll be able to stitch again. I hope I remember how (haha).

Take a look at some of the new designs that are on the way. It's a short list this week.


From Heart in Hand
A new three-part series. The first chart will include the lower third of the design - the colorful village. With each chart you will also receive a smaller Snow "Squall" design (the first will be "Forest Snow Squall"). The embellishments used with each portion of the design are included with each chart. 

 Snowscapes and Snow Squalls                                

From The Victoria Sampler
Cute ornaments!

Gingerbread Quilty Ornaments

From Abby Rose Designs
I like both of these little pillows. They look like they would be fun to stitch (and not take a long time either).

To Thine Own Self Be True                 Pins and Needles           

From Stoney Creek 
Another "Home of the Month". This one is my favorite.

Home of the Month - December

From Nebby Needle
What a cute idea to put on an old key. I want to do this for next year. 

Santa's Workshop

From Kit & Bixby
Personally, I think the home would be happier with a dog but then I'm a dog person.

Happy is the Home with at Least One Cat

From CM Designs
Now that is a festive group of cats.

Holiday Trio (Whiskerkins)

From Sue Hillis
Each leaflet contains 5 designs for the ornament Sleds, but with a "Victorian" flair. They are stitched on 32ct Petit Point Natural linen with White Dots instead of  Perforated Paper. The leaflet contains detailed step by step instructions for finishing the sleds, templates for mounting your stitching on the sleds, and details and tips to complete the projects as well as "painting" the sleds. These look simply adorable!

Only 27 days until Christmas!

Thanksgiving has come and gone and now we only have 27 days until Christmas (Yikes!!). I guess I'd better start shopping (if I only knew what to shop for). I'll figure it out eventually. This weekend I plan to get all my holiday decorating done and I'm actually looking forward to doing it. 

Take a look at a few new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon. There is not much to share this week but then again, the year is winding down and the designers probably are too.


From Homespun Elegance
What a lovely Christmas needle book.

Merry Needles

From Imaginating
Of all these designs, my favorite is the snowglobe. This would make a great piece to display all winter. 

 Let's Gallop                           Let's Be Frozen

Let's Remember                     Holiday Surprise   

From Lila's Studio
I love both of theses designs. The snowflake flowers are beautiful and the border on All is Calm is just stunning.
