8 Days Til Christmas

I hope everyone is ready for Christmas. It will be here in 8 days. Except for cleaning the house, buying two more presents, baking and wrapping...I'm done.  

If you need a last minute gift, stop by the store. We have many wonderful stitching accessories that would make great stocking stuffers, or gifts. Gift certificates are also a great idea!

Please check our website for Holiday Hours. I will post them today.

Due to the holidays, this is the last blog of 2018. The next post will be on Monday January 7, 2019. Wishing you all a very happy and blessed holiday season. 

Take a peek at some new designs that are on the way. Some may arrive before Christmas but most likely after.

Brrrrr...It's not Winter Yet!

"Brrrr" is all I can say about this past weekend. We had a little bit of everything: rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow. In other words, a frozen mess. I even watched it snow just a little bit more this morning as I was working on the computer. Glad the weather has moved on but it sure makes me wonder what January and February are going to be like.

Only 15 more days till Christmas. Yikes! I still need to do some shopping and have no clue when that is going to happen. Oh well, maybe i can just give IOU's this Christmas. I'm sure my kids would just love that. :)

Here is a peek at some new designs that will be arriving soon.

From Heartstring Samplery
Great designs for coffee lovers.

More great Christmas designs. I think that the "Christmas Signs" would make great ornaments and the gnomes are just adorable. Santa's House is finally finished and what a fun and festive piece it is.

Hello December!

WOW! only 22 days til Christmas. I better get myself in gear because I am so not ready for it. I did manage to get my house decorated this past weekend except for the tree. That will be done this coming weekend. Now, I just need to find some time to shop. 

Speaking of shopping, take a look at some new designs that will be arriving in the store soon. A project for the new year could be on the way (and we all need more projects).

From Just Nan
Another cute little stocking for the Gingerbread Mouse (sold separately) to hide in and a very gorgeous ornament with a dragonfly.
