On the Way...

Wow, where did January go? I can't believe it is almost February. I don't want to rush the year along anymore than necessary but I am ready for spring to arrive. Some warmer weather would be great. 

We will be having a Super Bowl sale of some kind on Saturday (Feb. 2). I am not sure exactly what will be on sale just yet. The details are still being discussed. Keep your eyes out for an email with exact details (one should be coming soon). The info will also be posted on the front page of our website.

Brrrr...winter returned!

All I can say is Brrrrrrrr, who turned off the heat? I know its still winter but I liked the milder temperatures much better. What we really need is a good snowstorm so I can stay home and stitch like crazy. I have seriously fallen behind on my stitching since Christmas. I need to make up for lost time. 

New designs are on the way....take a peek!

Coming Soon!
