Ok, right now we are in the middle of a heat wave with no end in sight but just think, in just 5 months it will be Christmas again. I know that has made everyone jump for joy. Hopefully, the weather will be cooler by then. In the meantime, stay inside and stitch and if you need something new to work on, then take a look at some new designs that are on the way.
From Country Cottage Needleworks
I totally agree with this except when the temps are close to 100 then it is just too hot to enjoy the beach.
From Waxing Moon Designs
I should stitch this and leave it up all year round since I'm never OFF duty.
Witch on Duty
From Kit & Bixby
A great Halloween saying with a gorgeous border.
When Black Cats Prowl
Four fun new designs. My favorite is the Halloween design followed closely by the elephants.
Let's Go to the Zoo Bead Dazzled
Full Moon Halloween
From With thy Needle & Thread
Four new designs from Brenda Gervais and I love them all. My favorite is Scary Mouse (I must be in a Halloween mood today).
Autumn's Fruitful Labor One for the Crow
I Rest Thy Needle
From Blackbird Designs
This is the 10th design in the Garden Club series.
How Does the Lily Grow
From Just Cross Stitch
NO...this has not arrived yet. I just wanted to share the cover picture. It looks like there are some really cute ornaments this year. Make sure to reserve your copy. It should arrive the end of August/first of September.
2016 Special Christmas Ornament Issue
Norden Crafts Online Needlework Show
Shop from the comfort of your own home on this online show from Norden Crafts.
It begins Monday, Aug. 8 at 9:00am (CDT)
and runs until Aug. 19 at 11:59pm (CDT)
If you are on Facebook, the link ( https://www.facebook.com/events/1539268363043510 ) will take you to their online page. This is the central location for all things about the online needlework show. On this page, designers will be posting pictures of new designs. If you see something that you would like to have, please let us know. We will have to order it for you since Norden Crafts is not a retailer.
We will also have a section on our website "Norden Crafts Online Show" that will feature designs available once the show starts.
Some of the designs are LIMITED EDITIONS. If you want one of those, let us know ASAP. We will try our best to get it for you but quantities are limited.
