It's the end of July!

Wow, this summer is flying by. In just 19 days, I will be moving my daughter to college. I can't believe how quickly this has arrived. My son will be starting his last year in middle school in 21 days and I'm so not ready to get into school mode. Oh well, guess I had better get it together because it will all be happening sooner rather than later. 

On a positive note, I have managed to finish the stitching on 3 small projects. I just have to "finish" them. One is going to be an ornament, another will be a flat fold and the last one will be framed. I hope to have them totally done this week, except for the framed piece (it will take a little longer).

From Heart in Hand
New fall and Christmas designs. "Autumn" is the last design in the Bird in Hand seasons series. The Hocus Pocus Halloween was designed for the Heartware bowl but I think it would also make a great ornament.

This is part one in a new 7 part mystery. The first part is the house and the remaining 6 parts (releasing in Aug., Sept. and Oct.) will be the rooms. This looks so cute. I can hardly wait to see what ghostly things are in each room.

Great new fall/Halloween designs. "Pumpkin Spice Season" is so true.  About everything imaginable becomes pumpkin spice flavored in the fall.

Coming soon!

Happy Monday. Another week has begun and I'm not ready for it to start yet. This past weekend was wonderful. The weather was great and I was able to get a lot done inside and outside of my house. I even managed to get in some stitching time (yay). Next week, I'm leaving for vacation (double yay!!) so there will not be a blog post next Monday. I will have a lot of catching up to do when i get back. :)

Here are some new designs that will be arriving soon.
