On the Way...

Happy Monday! Can you believe that January is almost over? Where did this month go? Time is going by so quickly and my kids are growing up way too fast. My daughter is starting to look at colleges now. I can't believe that she will be 17 this year and graduating from high school next year. I know that time did not move this quickly when I was her age. 

I do have some new designs to share. They will be arriving in the shop soon. I also have a few Nashville "sneak peeks" to show. The market isn't until March 3rd so there is still a lot of time for "peeks" to appear. We will try to post what we find on our website so please check the "what's new" section often. 

From Little House Needleworks
A great selection of new designs from Diane. I love the "He is Risen" design. I wonder if I could get that done by Easter? I could but I know I won't (at least not for Easter of 2017).

ABC Samplers #8 - UVW

From Annie Beez Folk Art
Love this snowman. He makes a great pillow but I think he would also make a great flat fold.

Who knew that cats liked to play in the rain. Too cute!

What a beautiful saying and it comes at a very appropriate time.

The Power of Love

From Shepherd's Bush
Two new designs full of love. "Love Notes" is a leaflet and "Heart Play " is a kit.

What's coming... plus some Nashville "Sneak Peeks"

Did the weekend just speed on by or what? I can't believe that it's Monday already. I sure am dragging today (and yes, that picture above is really me). Maybe after I infuse some more caffeine into my system, I will be more energetic.

I am going to post some new designs that are on the way followed by some early Nashville Market "sneak peeks". Keep in mind, the market isn't until March 3rd so hopefully I can post some "peeks" on each blog until then.

Cute samplers...looks like the start of a new monthly series.

    January Mini Sampler           February Mini Sampler

From Homespun Elegance
A nice friendship sampler.

Treasured Friends

From Imaginating
Four great new designs. My favorite is "Liberty for All". It would take a while to stitch but it would be worth it.

Spring Butterflies

Liberty for All

From Madame Chantilly
Too cute! A polar bear and penguin trying to hitch a ride to the North Pole. 

Winter is Coming

From Just Nan
"Winter in the Meadow" is the fourth and final needle case in the Meadow series. The "Pink Ice Cube" has been reprinted and is back by popular demand. It was originally released in January 2015.

From Samplers Not Forgotten
A nice spring/Easter design with a bunny and chicks.

Joyful Easter

From Kit & Bixby
The cats are at it again. This time they are building a sandcastle. Right now, I wish I was somewhere warm and building a sandcastle.

Summer Fur

From Ink Circles
A lot of arranging going on. I like the birdhouses but I know my husband would really like the lures. This could be a great gift idea for him. I'll have to give it some thought.
