Summer is coming...

Wow, next Monday is Memorial Day. Where did the Spring go? Summer is just around the corner but for me it will be starting this week since the last day of school for my kids is Wednesday. Let the sleeping in begin (for them anyway...I'll still be getting up at 6:00).

Just a reminder... the shop will be CLOSED on Monday May 30th for Memorial Day and I will not be posting another blog until June 6 (sorry). I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend. I will be traveling (ughhhh). 

Here are some new designs and accessories that will be arriving in the shop soon.

Four very different designs. My favorite is Liberty Angel.

Guess what? Only 4 more days til Friday (but who's counting). I really want to get home and stitch. I'm almost done with my current project and I can't wait to finish it so I can start something else (not sure what).

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

What a wonderfully patriotic piece. I think it would even make a nice framed piece.

Grand Old Flag Pin Drum

From Frony Ritter Designs
A neat little design to help you feel cool during the hot summer months. 

Stay Cool My Friend

From Bobbie G Designs
Hey's me riding my bike.

The models are stitched on 32ct Country French Cafe Mocha linen and each design has a stitch count of 63 x 63. (If you choose to stitch all nine on one piece of fabric - three across and three down leaving 3 stitches in between - the finished size will measure approximately 12-1/2" square).

A quick post.

It's Monday.... again. I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day weekend. Mine was great. I was able to get quite a bit of stitching done yesterday. I should finish the project I'm working on sometime this week (yeah!!!). 

I did not find much to share with you this week so this will be a short post but be sure to take a look at what is coming. Also, don't forget to check out the "what's new" section on the website.
