Coming Soon!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. This coming weekend is Labor Day weekend. YEAH!!! I am planning to go and visit my mom and sister in Charleston (rain or shine).  I have even picked out a new cross stitch project to take with me. Hopefully, it will be a quick one. Of course, every time I think I can get something done quickly, it always takes a lot longer than I thought.

FYI......The Stitch and Frame Shop will be closed on Monday September 4th (Labor Day)

This also means that there will probably not be a blog next week unless I can get one done on Tuesday. I'll try.

Happy Eclipse Day!

Well, today is the eclipse. I hope everyone has their glasses. I do! I was originally planning to go to my sister's house in Charleston, SC but due to possible clouds (and horrible traffic), we decided to stay home. 98% is not bad (even though 100% would have been better).

I hope everyone has a chance to go out and view the eclipse. Regardless of percentage, it should still be an awesome sight to see.

There are quite a few new designs that are on the way. Take a look....

Back to School!

I can't believe that summer is almost over. My kids start back to school on Thursday. I'm not really ready for summer to end. It went by way too fast.  I guess now I can look forward to Christmas (only 133 days away). 

Need a new project? Well, take a look at some new designs that will be arriving soon and remember....Christmas is coming!
