3 days til Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is only 3 days away but it's only 2 days until my family arrives. I spent Saturday night and most of Sunday cleaning. The house is probably as good as it will get (which is a whole lot cleaner than usual). I went grocery shopping yesterday and needless to say, my bill was a tad higher than normal (feeding 13 people will do that). Don't get me wrong, I'm really looking forward to their visit. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and in case you want to get out and go shopping (specifically at The Stitch and Frame Shop), the Thanksgiving holiday hours are:

Wednesday November 26 we will close at 3:00pm
Thursday November 27 (Thanksgiving Day) we will be CLOSED
Friday November 28 & Saturday November 29 we will be open regular hours

I made a mistake in the blog last week. I listed  "The Nativity" as a design from Little House Needleworks when it is really from Country Cottage Needleworks. I'm sorry if this confused anyone. Apparently, I didn't read my notes correctly. I have since gone back and corrected the mistake.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I spent most of Saturday cleaning carpet (boy, do I have a lot of carpet in my house). I'm really glad that chore is over but my carpet looks 100% better. I wish I had been able to stitch but I was too busy cleaning. I have almost finished the project I'm working on which means.....I can start a new one! The problem is which one?

Here are some designs that are on the way. Maybe one of these will be my "new project".


From By the Bay Needleart
I love this design. It reminds me of the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. 

It Just Needs Love

This is too funny! Now that I think about it, this should be MY biggest fear.
