Coming Soon!

Wow, April is at an end. Summer is just around the corner. Time to start thinking about a new summer/vacation project. If you really want to get ahead, you can go ahead and start planning for the holidays. I, however, am not ready to consider that yet. 

Take a look at some new designs that will be arriving soon. The perfect summer project could be on the way.

Hello Monday!

Happy Monday...yeah, it's Monday again. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was very busy, not only did I work on Saturday, but it was also my daughter's senior prom. She was so beautiful and her boyfriend cleaned up nice as well. I can't believe how fast this year is going. In about 1 month, my daughter will be graduating from high school. I'm not sure I'm ready for this.

Enough about me, let's get on to the fun stuff.....cross stitch. Take a look at some of the new designs that will be arriving soon.

From Hands on Design
The next three designs in the "White Christmas" series and the second design in the "Laundry Company" series. My favorite is the laundry series. Probably because I spend so much time dealing with laundry.

Loads of Fun

From My Big Toe

Wouldn't the the little monthly designs make cute ornaments or small pillows? I think so but I really like the two Quaker designs. I may not get them stitched but they are definitely going into my stash.

I love the colors in the Autumn labyrinth design and I think both of these designs would be fun to stitch.

On the way....

Happy Monday and yes, it is Monday. Mine started out wonderfully. Thought I had my husband out the door when I heard him call my name. I went to see what he wanted and it turned out his car battery died so we had to use my car to give him a jump start. No big deal but it made me run late...ughhhh. I also have a dental appointment this morning to get a cavity filled. You can see how my Monday is going. I sure hope the rest of you have a better day and even better week.

Now, on to the good stuff. Here are some new designs that will be arriving soon. Take a look.

From Mirabilia
It looks like this lovely fairy is trying to decide if she wants to get out of bed.
