Who turned up the heat?

I know its summer and it's supposed to be hot but this year seems a little hotter than it has been in the past. Of course, hot flashes do not help the situation and neither do masks. LOL! I hope everyone is staying safe and getting lots of stitching done. Need some inspiration? Take a look at some wonderful new designs that will be arriving soon.

From Shepherd's Bush
Three new kits. "Thoughts of Home" is my favorite of the bunch. Love the button.

"Charlotte's Smalls" is a set of pin pillows based on the Charlotte Mullenger reproduction sampler. I love the colors. "Ocean of Wisdom II" makes me want to go the beach.

Coming Soon!

Happy Monday! In case you didn't notice, a blog was not posted last week and that's because I was on vacation. It was a very unusual vacation in that, I didn't go anywhere. I did enjoy my time at home but I am glad to be back at work. I was getting rather bored at the end of the week. I was, however, able to get some stitching done but not as much as I thought I would (go figure). 

Here are some new designs that will be arriving soon. Take a peek!

From With Thy Needle & Thread
Three fun Autumn/Halloween designs. "Autumn Gatherings" is the first in a new series called Gatherings. There will be 4 designs in the series, one for each season.
