On the way...

Image result for clipart flowers and butterflies border

Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Mine was very hectic but I enjoyed every minute (well, almost every minute). Now, it is time to get ready for a new year and doesn't that mean a new project?  I plan to start something new although I haven't decided what yet (my list of projects is very long). Take a look below at some new designs that will be arriving soon. Even if you don't see something that you want to stitch, it may give you some wonderful inspiration.

Remember, we will be closed Dec. 31 and Jan.1 (to do inventory...ughhhh).


From Stoney Creek
A wonderful collection of Christmas designs. I guess this is a hint to start stitching now for Christmas 2016 since these designs are releasing just after this past Christmas.

Wouldn't this piece look good framed and hanging over a wine rack? Just a thought.

Grapes on the Vine

From Notforgotten Farm
A lovely collection of primitive designs.

I totally agree with this but after these last couple of days, I'd better take the love and skip the chocolate (haha).

This would look so good on an Easter tree.

11 days and counting...

Christmas is almost here and for once I'm ready early. I was able to finish my shopping this weekend as well as most of the wrapping. It is so nice to be ahead of schedule for a change. This week I will do some baking (homemade cookies make great teacher gifts).  Christmas is definitely much less stressful when you are not running around at the last minute like a crazed chicken. 

Take a look at some new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon. You might need a new project to bring in the new year.


From Blackbird Designs
So far I have really liked all the designs in this series. I guess I'd better start collecting them. 

Honey Bee 
#3 in the Garden Club Series

From Country Cottage Needleworks
The newest design in the "Gingerbread Village" is a cozy looking gingerbread house. I guess there will be another one since this is #1. 

Gingerbread House #1                    Snowman           

From Little House Needleworks
Yeah, another addition to the Hometown Holiday series and what a great addition it is. 
The "Snowy Winter" is a lovely winter piece and it is finished beautifully.

From Kathy Barrick
 I love the winter scene in the owl's wing. This piece is definitely going into my "stash".

Peace on Earth

From Nikyscreations
What a beautiful ornament.

From Tempting Tangles
I could sure use a "cuppa" right now.

Only 18 days until Christmas!

Image result for christmas clip art

It is hard to believe that Christmas is almost here and for once, I'm almost ready. The house and tree are decorated and all I need now are presents to put under the tree. I still have some shopping (and a lot of wrapping) to do but compared to last year, I am way ahead of schedule.

This Saturday (December 12th), The Stitch and Frame Shop will be having a Customer Appreciation Day/Open House from 10:00am til 4:00pm. Join us for some holiday fun!

New designs are on the way...take a look!

This cute Santa kit includes 28ct. linen, checked finishing fabric, hand-dyed buttons, ribbon, a rusty jingle bell, 2 mother of pearl buttons and complete finishing instructions.
