A shopping we will go.

We leave for Nashville in just 4 days. I still have a few things to add to the website so please be sure to check it this week. If you see something you would like, please let the shop know by Thursday. Also, I will not be blogging next Monday (March 5). I will be busily adding new stuff to our website. Look for the next blog on Monday March 12.

I do have a few things to share this week. Here are some designs that have already been released and will be in the shop soon. Take a look!


From Imaginating
Four new designs. My favorite is the group therapy one. I think my need for group therapy will be really great next week. 

    Let's Learn From Our Dog              Let's Be Old Friends          

  Let's Hug a Nurse                      Let's Go To Therapy 

From Little House Needleworks
The second design in the Farmhouse Christmas series. Can't wait to see the third one.

Two great spring designs. I love the colors in the "Spring Birds".

Welcome Spring

From Crossed Wing Collection
What can I say except...gorgeous. 

Green Jays

From Bobbie G. Designs
This is too funny. Who followed me to the beach?  

Beach Ladies

From Stoney Creek
What a sweet afghan. There is a lot of stitching in those cute animals but well worth it in the end. The birth sampler is also very cute.

Noah's Babies

From Designs by Lisa
That is the sweetest face ever. Just look at those eyes. 

Hare & the Butterfly

From The Vickery Collection

Something Different

Happy Monday! Today's blog is going to be a little different. The Nashville Needlework Market starts in 11 days and I have been busily trying to get new designs posted on our website. There is quite a bit more I need to post so I'm going to cut this a little short so I can work on posting all this wonderful new stuff. 

Remember to check the "what's new" section on our website often (I'm adding more today) and if you see something you would like to have, please let the shop know. Peggy will gladly add it to her extra long shopping list.

Did you think I was going to stop there and not post any pictures? Wrong. I thought I'd post a few of my favorite designs that are releasing in Nashville and then I'd stop and go work on the website. 


Bless Us from Lila's Studio

Holiday Quaker from Lila's Studio

Frogs in Your Underpants from The Nebby Needle

It reads: "May the light always find you on a dreary day.
When you need a home may you find your way.
May you always have courage to take a chance
and never find frogs in your underpants".

Life, Liberty & Happiness from Mani Di Donna

This is a LIMITED EDITION design.


Remember...keep checking the website!

Happy Valentine's Day....a little early

Happy Valentine's Day (2 days early). You know what would make a great Valentine? A new cross stitch project. So treat yourself to a special Valentine's gift and pick out something new to do. It doesn't matter if you already have a few started. One more won't hurt. 

There are a few new designs on the way for me to share but please keep checking the "what's new" section on our website. I have and will be adding more designs that will be releasing in Nashville (the first of March). 


From Homespun Elegance
Three new Christmas ornaments. My favorite is the snowman. He is just too cute along with his woodland friends.

Yule Be Merry                         Snowy Friends

Santa Please Fill My Stocking

From The Vickery Collection
Just looking at this makes me crave some pasta. I must be hungry.


From Heartstring Samplery
These fobs are so sweet and would be very quick to stitch.

Festive Little Fobs #2 - Springtime

From Plum Street Samplers
Plum Street is starting a new series called "Noah's Christmas Ark".  It will be released in 6 charts (2 designs per chart). Each design can be stitched individually or all together (4 blocks across, 3 blocks down).  I may have to start this series. I love the crocodiles and giraffes.

Coming Soon!

It's Monday again. How did that happen and where did my weekend go? Weekends just go by way too fast. For those who watched, did you enjoy the Super Bowl? I actually did. It was a great game and for once, the team I was pulling for won! Yay....Eagles! I even managed to get a bit of stitching done while I watched (that was the best part).

There are quite a few new designs on the way...take a look!


From Blackbird Designs
This is the 6th design in the Loose Feathers - For the Birds series. 

Pleasure of the Fleeting Year

Love You Tag (kit)        Be Mine Tag (kit)

Love the seaside series. Wouldn't they make cute ornaments or small pillows?

The colors in this design are stunning. I may have to do this. I can stitch flowers but not so much grow them.

From Artful Offerings
What a cute little bluebird. The different patterns in his body and wings make him very unique.

This sampler is a little different but I think there should be 4 chairs. One for stitching.
