Coming Soon!


Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I can honestly say that mine was really relaxing. I was able to get some stitching done since I'm still on lifting restrictions (due to surgery). My husband did all the laundry and most of the cleaning while I stitched. One more week and I should be back to normal (whatever that was). In the meantime, I will totally enjoy the extra stitching time. 

Since I know you all need a new project (because you have nothing at home), here are a few new designs to tempt you with.

From Ink Circles
What fun designs! I really like the Rabbit Rabbit series. They would make a great collection of smalls.

Happy July!


I'm finally back to work. Between surgery and vacation, it seems like I have been gone forever. It is really good to be back. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. I had a very relaxing vacation with my family. It was so great getting to spend some time with my daughter. 

From Hands on Design
Signs of the Seasons is a new 3 part series. Each chart will contain 3 designs (so there will be 9 total).  Part 1 is called Fright the Way. Parts 2 and 3 will be releasing in August. You will be given two color palette options. I myself like the darker background.

Finally...a new post!


I'm back! Well, almost back. I am in the shop for a few hours today to blog and to do some other computer stuff. I'm still recovering from surgery but doing very well. I will be on vacation next week (surgery or not, I was NOT going to cancel my vacay) but I plan to be back to work starting Monday July 12. I am looking forward to coming back.


Please Note...

The Stitch and Frame Shop will be CLOSED on Saturday July 3, Sunday July 4, and Monday July 5
