Coming soon!

Happy Monday! You know this is going to be a great week when you have to start it in the dentist's chair (yes, the top right side of my mouth is still numb...oh joy) but this too shall pass. 

Take a look a some of the new designs that will be arriving soon (there are some really cute ones this week).

Happy Spring!

Today is the first day of spring. With the exception of my seasonal allergies, I really like spring. I love the flowers and the bright green leaves as the trees start to fill out again. However, this last cold snap really messed up my azaleas. They had just started to bloom (early due to warm weather) and then BAM....frozen azaleas. Oh well.

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

From Hinzeit
A sweet little cross stitch sampler. The chart even includes the scissors charm.

I always thought it was "Shop till You Drop" but "Flip Flop till You Drop" works just as well.

           Music Wings                          Flip Flop till You Drop

From The Vickery Collection
The "Laughing Lizards" would make a great companion piece to the "Happy Geckos" that I posted last week.

Back from Market!


Well, Peggy & Carol made it back from Nashville with a car full of goodies. We worked like busy bees last week trying to get everything checked in and put into the store. If you have a chance come by and see what we have, if not, check out the what's new and just arrived sections on our website. If we happen to be out of something, don't worry, we will get it back in. Carol already has quite a large stack of reorders to place.

Amazingly enough, there are things coming out that we did not see or get at market so take a look and see what is on the way............


From Cross Eyed Cricket
These designs are simply "egg"ceptional.  I love the vintage eggs. Wouldn't they look lovely on an Easter Tree?

"Spooky Night" is just so spooky. I would love to have it done for this Halloween but I have so much going on that I can't possibly start something else. Guess I'll aim for Halloween 2018.
