Just a quick post

Happy Monday! Another week has begun. I just want to remind everyone that Peggy and Carol will be leaving for the Nashville Market on Friday. Please keep checking the "what's new" section on our website to see if there is anything you would like to have. I'll be adding more items this week. If you see something, please let the shop know by Thursday morning (March 2) and Peggy will add it to her shopping list.. They will be leaving early Friday morning.

I will not be posting a blog next week since we will be busy getting everything checked in from market but I'll post again on March 13.

This is too funny yet so true.

Four totally different designs. "Not My Monkeys" is hilarious and the neutral tones in "Porch Welcome" and "Bless Our Home" are very nice.

Happy President's Day!

Unfortunately, this is not a holiday for me (my kids...yes). For those of you who are off today, I hope you are enjoying your long weekend and are able to get some stitching done.

Peggy and Carol will be going to the Nashville Needlework Market in just 11 days. I'm trying to post as many of the new designs on our website that I can. Please be sure to check the "what's new" section often. If you see something that you would like to have, please let the shop know and Peggy will be glad to add it to her shopping list.

Not only is this the motto of frogs (rip it) but it is mine as well. I'm very well versed in ripping.

It seems to me that this sampler would be luckier if it had four leaf clovers instead of three leaf but I still like it.

Happy Valentine's Day...early

Even though it is a day early, I just want to say "Happy Valentine's Day".  Hope everyone has a "sweet" day tomorrow. If your not craving candy, what about a new cross stitch project? Take a look at some new designs that are on the way.

From MarNic Designs
Ok, now I know why I like to cross stitch. It allows me to repeatedly stab something that won't send me to prison.

I really love how vibrant the colors look on the Small Animal Sampler but to get that effect, you would have to stitch it on black fabric...ughhh.

It's Fabulous February

February has arrived and according to the groundhog, we have 6 more weeks of winter. I guess that is okay since we haven't had much of a winter anyway with temperatures in the 60's and 70's. I'll take it but....bring on spring. 

Quite a few new designs are on the way....take a look.

From Tempting Tangles
Mister Blueberry Blue is too cute.
