Too hot to be outside?.....then STITCH!

Happy Monday! We are finally getting a little relief from the high temperatures of last week (yeah!!). However, it is still summer so we will still feel some heat. What a great time to be inside stitching. Take a look below to see what new designs are on the way. You might just need to start something new.

FYI- - - The Stitch and Frame Shop 
will be CLOSED Saturday July 4th!

98 degrees...99 degrees...SUMMER!

Today is the first day of summer and it sure feels like it. We are in for another HOT week with little chance for rain. Of course, the best thing to do is stay inside (with the AC) and stitch. There are many new designs on the way. Maybe you need a new project or just some inspiration to finish one. Do you really have to finish one to start something new? (I think NOT). 

At any rate, below are some new designs that are coming soon. Since the 4th of July will be here soon, I have posted a group of patriotic designs first (there were quite a few of them). Enjoy!

Wouldn't these make cute ornaments hanging on a "patriotic" tree?

Happy Monday!

Good morning! It might not officially be summer but the summer heat is definitely here. This week looks to be quite warm with no rain in sight :(  I guess I'd better stay inside and stitch (when I'm not at work ,of course). I was able to stitch some last night and the small patriotic piece I'm working on should be done today or tomorrow. I'll post a picture next week.

I wasn't able to find a whole lot of new designs for this weeks blog but I'll share what I did find.
Summer tends to slow down a little. I guess vacations get in the way but I'm not complaining. My vacation is in July and I'm so looking forward to it:)


From Bobbie G. Designs
Lots of stitching in this wonderful patriotic design. Love the brightness of the colors.

God Bless America

A wonderful new autumn/fall design with deer. I think this piece will be added to my stash. 
I really like it!
Deer Friends

From Heartstring Samplery
There are no words that can express how much I love this design. I have almost finished a patriotic piece but I like this one even more. Maybe this can be my vacation project.
