Summer is almost here...

Next Monday is Memorial Day and isn't that the unofficial start of summer? I just can't believe that summer is almost here. Friday is the last day of school for my kids and my daughter graduates high school on Saturday. Where does the time go? 

The Stitch and Frame Shop will be CLOSED on Memorial Day (Mon. May 28).  There will be no blog next week due to the holiday so check back on June 4th for the next post. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend.

On the way...

It looks like summer is trying to push spring right out the door. The heat has arrived. Time to bring out the sandals and capri pants and say goodbye to sneakers and jeans. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine, as usual, went by way too fast. 

I want to wish all the moms a happy belated Mother's Day. Hopefully, you all enjoyed a relaxing stress free day. I had a very lovely day. 

Now, on to the fun stitching stuff.....

From Tempting Tangles
What a fun sampler featuring houses and quaker motifs.

From Rosewood Manor
"Ancient Embroideries" is a collage of ancient stitching motifs, inspired by old tapestries. Stitched all together, it makes a gorgeous piece but you could easily take sections and make small pillows or pincushions.  "Dreaming Of Sunflowers" is very bright and vibrant.

Two totally different designs. The Halloween design is very nice but the wolf on top of the snow globe just cracks me up.  lol

What to Stitch?

What to stitch? Now, that is a good question. You can always work on a project that you have started. You could look through your stash and start a new project or you could buy a new project to add to the stash for future searching. 

For those who would like to start a new project or even to add to their collection, here are some new designs that will be arriving in the shop soon.


From Plum Street Samplers
"Sampler Lesson Three" was previously released as a kit. It is now being re-released as a chart only. If you missed it the first time, now you have another chance to get it. Also, another pair in the Noah's Christmas Ark series and the cutest stacks of animals ever.
