Goodbye July!

It's hard to believe that July is over. My kids will be starting school in just 17 days. Where did the summer go? I'm not quite ready for school to start again and I'm positive my kids aren't. Once school gets started, it seems like the holidays arrive way to quickly. Time to start working on those holiday gift ideas. Need some suggestions? Take a look at some new designs that are on the way...

On the way....

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was great even though it went by way too fast. I had a nice visit with my mom. We didn't do much because it was just too darned hot. We watched a couple of movies, cooked together and talked. It was a wonderful indoor weekend.

There are quite a few new designs that will be arriving soon. Take a look....

From Country Cottage Needleworks
My favorite main street building so far...the coffee shop.

Main Street Coffee Shop                 Time for Tea              

From Little House Needleworks
If you are stitching the Early Americans series all together, "Freedom" is the center block. Although, it makes a nice piece all by itself. 

                Freedom                        Fresh Brewed Coffee
#5 in the Early Americans Series

A perfect design for Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday).

From Stoney Creek
These are some really "cool" ornaments.

Where has the summer gone?

July is just marching by. I can't believe it is already July 17th. My kids will be going back to school Before you know it, Christmas will be here (and with that thought in mind, it is never too early to start your holiday stitching).

Take a look at some new designs that will be arriving soon. Maybe the perfect gift idea is on the way. 

From Plum Street Samplers
Another batch of great designs from Plum Street. My two favorites are "Judge Not" (love all the different sheep) and "A Thousand Hills".

Berry Cottage

A Thousand Hills

Judge Not

Sampler House III                Sampler House IV 

From Scattered Seed Samplers
"Sewing" doesn't mend my soul but cross stitch sure does. 

  Mend Thy Soul                            Heart of Wisdom

From La D Da
Beautiful sampler. Reminds me of folk art.

Auspicious Hope

Another addition to the alphabet series. The best so far, in my opinion.
