Happy Memorial Day...early!

The Stitch & Frame Shop will be CLOSED on Monday May 25th for Memorial Day. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday. I have no plans right now except to stitch, stitch and maybe stitch some more. Of course, these plans (like all others) will probably change. Since, we will be closed on Monday, there will be no blog next week (sorry). Just think, after 2 weeks, I should have a lot to blog about.

Good Morning. I hope all mothers had a very nice Mother's Day. Mine was very relaxing. I didn't have to cook a single meal (that was totally awesome and the best present of the day). I even got some stitching done. I started a new project on Sunday (a Halloween piece) and I can't wait to work on it some more this week. 

There are some designs that will be arriving in the shop soon...take a look!


From Hands on Design
Ahoy there ye mateys....the 2nd chapter in the Square.ology series will be releasing soon. This batch is filled with pirate ships, sandcastles and a pink octopus or two.

A lovely little house by the sea. I really like the piece but instead of stitching the house by the sea, I want to be there instead.

Home by the Sea

After a lengthy wait, we shall soon have two more months in the "monthly" series. 
It may have taken a while, but I think the results are worth it. The designs for both of these months look great.

Happy Monday!

Good morning! Can you believe that it is May already? Wow, spring just sprung and soon summer will be here. I know my kids are excited because they only have about 22 days left of school. Time sure does fly. Anyway, there are a few new designs on the way that I wanted to share so take a look below and see what will be arriving soon. 

ON THE WAY............

What a great saying. The next time I can't sleep, I'll try this. Since counting sheep never works for me, maybe counting blessings will. If not, I can always grab my book and read.
