November is almost over!

November is almost gone and that means Christmas is just around the corner. If you are stitching gifts, get those fingers flying because there is not much time left. If you need us to frame something, please bring it to us within the next 2 weeks. December 8th is the cut off date to guarantee for Christmas. 

Do you want to start looking for a new project to bring in the New Year?  Well, here are some designs that will be arriving soon. Maybe your next project is on the way.

The next design in the series features a Baltimore Oriole and Peonies. Love the flowers.

The second house in the Glitter House Village series features a pink cottage...very nice. "Happy Holidays" is a very festive design but I would like it better in more traditional Christmas colors (but that is just my opinion).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Only 3 days until Thanksgiving...yay! Is everyone ready? I think I am. House is cleaned and hopefully, just one more run to the grocery store and then all I need are for the family to arrive. Some are coming today and others on Wednesday and Thursday. I am ready for some good food and family fun. 

The Stitch and Frame Shop wishes everyone a very blessed Thanksgiving. We will be closed on Wednesday Nov. 21 and Thursday Nov. 22 but open regular hours on Friday and Saturday. Want to avoid the typical Black Friday shopping areas? Then come by here and pick out a quick project or maybe even a finished model to give as a gift. We are currently having a model sale. There are a variety of items: pillows, ornaments, framed pieces and more. The models are cash only (no debit or credit cards). 

To help with some stitching inspiration, here are some new designs that will be arriving soon.

From Heartstring Samplery
Hard to pick which one of these adorable little designs is the cutest but I think I'm going with the penguins.

10 Days til Thanksgiving!

Ten days and counting. Oh my, who said Thanksgiving could come this quickly? I have a lot to do and not much time in which to do it. Looks like my stitching time is going to suffer. I am working on one project that I would like to have finished before this weekend. There is not very much left so hopefully, I will be able to finish it. 

Also, please check the website for our holiday hours. They will be posted either today or tomorrow.

Now, for what you have been waiting designs!

Two great Christmas designs. I can't decide which one I like best. Therefore, both designs will be added to the stash.
