Welcome Spring!

I do not think that Mother Nature got the memo that it is now spring. Winter just doesn't seem to want to go away. Last week I about froze to death sitting at my daughter's track meet. This week, however, looks to be much warmer (Yay!!!).  Maybe the warmer temps will stick around. 

Need a new project? Take a look at some new designs that will be arriving soon.

From The Victoria Sampler
This fun celebration sampler features vibrant colors, pulled work and Hardanger Embroidery.

This is the first part in the "Welcome to the Forest" series.  There will be 7 parts in all. The remaining designs will feature cute woodland creatures.

On the way...

Who turned down the heat? Yesterday was so nice but today is cold, rainy and downright dreary. I am so ready for warmer weather to STAY. This back and forth is killing me. Although, today would be a great stay at home and stitch day (if only I could have). Oh well, I shall endeavor to find some time this afternoon.

Wouldn't these make great pictures in a sewing or craft room? I think so. Wish I had one.

Yep, that is what I look like after last week. Ughhh. I'm still tired and the time change did not help matters (LOL). Peggy, Carol and I made it back from Nashville and brought back lots of goodies. Everything has been checked in and put on the web so be sure to check the "what's new" and "just arrived" sections to see all the new items. 

Amazingly enough there is more on the way. Take a look below at more new designs that will be arriving soon.


From Glendon Place
It looks like Glendon Place is starting a series of Hungarian Folk Art pieces. They have also added to their Vintage Nursery Rhyme Collection (Mary, Mary is #4) and of course, they designed another fun Halloween piece.
