Well, officially, the first day of summer is June 21st but since Memorial Day has past and my kids are out of of school....summer has arrived! It's hard to believe that it is only June 5th and I have already been on vacation. My husband and I took the kids to Universal Studios in Orlando after Memorial Day. We all had a great time even if my calves are still aching from all the walking.
I took a small cross stitch project with me but didn't get very much accomplished. I guess I'll work on it some this week. I know I missed sharing some things with you so please keep checking the "what's new" and "just arrived" sections on our website. I'll be updating those this week. I have a lot of catching up to do.
In the meantime, here are some new designs that will be arriving soon....enjoy!

A new Series from Brenda Gervais
(With Thy Needle & Thread)
Summer Schoolhouse - Lessons in Abecedarian
This series will consist of 4 lessons/4 separate charts with a total of 6 projects. This is a mystery series so only snippets of each lesson will be shared. Lesson #1 will be released June 20th; Lesson #2 on July 20th; Lesson #3 August 20th & Lesson #4 September 20th.
The designs are worked on 28ct. Mushroom Lugana over 1 thread. This is a great fabric to work over one on because it is evenweave and the "holes" are easy to see. All six of the designs coordinate and are designed to be placed together for a striking vignette of tiny hand work. This will be a wonderful summer project.
The required fabric for all 4 lessons is 9" x 55" (this is enough for finishing/backing).
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
