Only 122 days til Christmas!

New designs keep arriving in the shop almost daily. Take a look at some designs that aren't in the shop YET but will be soon. With only 122 days until Christmas, it's time to start thinking about the holidays. Maybe the designs below will provide the inspiration and motivation that you need to get stitching.

Speaking of holidays, Monday Sept. 1st is Labor Day and The Stitch and Frame Shop will be CLOSED!
I will not be blogging that day, however, I will try to blog on Tuesday Sept. 2nd. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!

What a cheerful sampler. Looks like a perfect Sunday afternoon.

Sunday Afternoon

From The Sweetheart Tree
This design is a limited edition kit. It includes: 35ct. Lambswool linen, DMC floss, 3 colors of Mill Hill Petite beads, Crystal clear Paillettes and a sterling silver bow charm. Please let the shop know if you would like this kit. Since it is limited, I'm not sure how long we will be able to reorder.

Good Day (kit)

Back to school they go.

For my children, the summer is now over. Today is the first day of school. Needless to say, they were not ready for summer to end but I was. I'm glad to have them back in school and we can get back into a regular schedule again. Maybe I can even schedule some extra stitching time (doubt it... but it was a nice thought).

The needlework market in St. Charles has now come and gone. New designs that debuted at market should start arriving in the shop in the next couple of weeks. Take a look below to see a sample of new designs.
