Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone is prepared. Tonight is the night when all the little ghosts and goblins come out begging for candy. Of course, if you are like me, you only have about 6 or 7 kids show up. Luckily, I do not have to go out tonight. I can stay home and watch spooky movies with my hubby. Well, he may actually watch. I'm going to listen while I stitch. 

Here are some new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon.

From Glendon Place
Three great Christmas designs. I can't decide which I like best: "Flowers of the Holy Night" or "I'll Be Home fro Christmas".  Looks like both designs will be going into the stash.

Alfred is so cute but I think his name should be changed to Pinocchio.

What a gorgeous sampler. It reads "I heard the bells on Christmas Day, their old familiar carols play and wild and sweet the words repeat, Of peace on earth good will to men!".

Three winter/holiday designs. The "Peace Lights" are really calling to me. I guess that will go on my to do list for next year.

A very nice Quaker style sampler. This doesn't look like it would take to long to stitch.

Image result for clip art autumn

You can tell that the holidays are on the way and not just because the stores already have Christmas on display. With only 2 months (and 1 day) till Christmas, things are bound to get even busier. Here at The Stitch & Frame Shop, we are busy little bees (especially in framing) but we wouldn't have it any other way.

Apparently, the designers have also been busy. There are a lot of new designs on the way...take a look but be warned...due to the volume of new designs, this blog post is a little longer than usual (but that's a good thing...right?).


From Threadwork Primitives
A lovely autumn pillow. I love the colors.

Bountiful Blessings

From La-D-Da
Great house. 


From Little House Needleworks
Two new Christmas designs and the newest ABC sampler. I really like how the Christmas pillow is finished...too cute.

What a cute Christmas Sampler. Is it just me or do Santa's legs look a little skinny?

Snow Place #1
(1st in a series of 5)

From With Thy Needle & Thread
Five great new designs from Brenda. My favorite is "Snow for Christmas". How can you not like Santa riding a very large sheep?

From The Drawn Thread
Two beautiful Christmas designs which will be going into my stash as soon as they arrive.

Christmas Baskets

Good Tidings

From Plum Street Samplers
I wonder if the pilgrim in "Turkey Bay" is looking for turkeys or is he possibly looking for mermaids in "Siren Cove". My bet is the mermaids.

I like the stocking ornament and since it is ornament #1, that means there could be more. Can't wait to see what other stockings will be in this series.

I think they got it wrong. "Toby" is the best dog in the world.
