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.

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

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is in 3 days and my family starts arriving tomorrow but I'm actually ready. I spent this past weekend cleaning the house and my body is still feeling the effects. If I cleaned like that every weekend, I could be a few dress sizes smaller. Not gonna happen. 

The Stitch & Frame Shop will be CLOSED on Wednesday Nov. 23 and Thursday Nov. 24. We will be open normal hours on Friday (11/25) and Saturday (11/26). 

Need a new holiday project? Here are some new designs and accessories that will be arriving soon.

Only 10 days til Thanksgiving!


I can't believe that it is only 10 days until Thanksgiving. I guess I'd better start working on my menu and get shopping. I probably will not have much time for stitching this week since housework will be my top priority. I'm going to have a house full next week therefore, I must clean so that it can get messed up again (ughhhh).

There are some really nice designs on the way. Take a look. There may be a future project or two you might just have to get.


From Hands on Design
The final two designs in the "To the Beach" series.
