New Designs

As always, new designs are on the way. Take a look below to see what is coming. Some designs will be here this week.

Designers are very busy getting ready for the Nashville Needlework Market at the end of February. This week, I will be searching out "sneak peeks" of designs that will be debuting in Nashville so check back to see what I have found. (We will also have "sneak peeks" on our website).

Also, Peggy and Carol will be attending this market. It is a cash and carry show which means they will be bringing lots of wonderful goodies back with them. If you see something that you want on our blog or website (or even somewhere else), please let us know. Peggy will gladly add it to her shopping list.

On the way............

From Just Nan
The pink cube features 6 different snowflakes embellished with white, pink and silver crystal beads and pearls. The optional Limited Edition Snowflake Pinwheel Charm Pin is shown atop the cube (it is sold separately). I love the snowflake pinwheel charm even if it doesn't spin.

A new spring design and a new ornament. The "Let Us Adore Him" is my favorite so far in the ornament series.

I love this design even though it makes me cold just looking at it. Burrrrrrr!

Chilly Winter

From Imaginating
I myself am not a gardener (I have a black thumb not a green one) but I love the "Let's Garden" design. It would be a great gift for my mother-in-law. If I start now, I might could get it done for her birthday in March (of course, there is always Christmas).

Happy Monday!

Well it's the start of another week and the weather is beautiful. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I was in Charleston, SC. with my family. We had a wonderful time walking around downtown. It was nice to get out of the house and get away. I didn't get any stitching done but that's ok, I knew I wouldn't. Hopefully, I'll be able to do some this week.

Here are some of the things that will be arriving in the shop soon....


From Tempting Tangles
A very nice black and white sampler.

Ebony and Ivory

From The Trilogy
Three wonderful new designs. I really love both of the "Giggly Wigglies". Both designs will be going into the stash!

A cute little sewing set and a great reflection of London. Can you find Big Ben? What about the telephone boxes?

Two beautiful and delicate looking designs. Both designs would be quick to stitch. The "Heart in Hand" reminds me of a cameo.

Perfect day to stitch!

It's a cold, damp and rainy day today. The perfect kind of day to sit on the couch, watch a movie and stitch. I would love to be doing that right now but work comes first. Maybe later this afternoon, I'll be able to sit and stitch for a few minutes. I would love to start a new project but I haven't decided what yet. I guess I'll have to look around the shop and find something or maybe wait and see what wonderful new designs come in this week. Take a look below at some designs that are on the way.


From Heartstring Samplery
What a fun sampler (and so true).. The rules are as follows: 1. When in doubt always buy more linen and thread 2. Stitch all day and absolutely no housework allowed 3. Always start a new project before the last is finished requiring a return to number 1.

Stitcher's Resolution

From Hinzeit
Seven fun new designs.

New (and not so new)

The CW design called "Decorative Bellpull" has been updated
