25 Days until Christmas!

November is over. December starts tomorrow and there are only 25 days until Christmas. I'm looking forward to Christmas this year. Like, Thanksgiving it is going to be a quiet and simple affair with just me, my husband and the kids. Hopefully, lots of stitching time.

Here are some new designs that will be arriving soon...

Happy Thanksgiving!


I want to wish everyone a very blessed and safe Thanksgiving. I know the holidays are going to be a little different this year but we will make it through. If nothing else, we have our stitching. I must say, I have gotten more stitching done this year than ever before. Of course, I haven't gotten much finished  because I'm working on a rather large sampler but it will be done by the end of the year. 

Because we all need more to are some new designs that will be arriving soon.

Thanksgiving is Coming!


Wow, only 10 days until Thanksgiving. Even though my family has opted not to get together this year, I'm still looking forward to it. It will be a nice change of pace to only feed 4 instead of 16+.  

The shop will be CLOSED on Wednesday Nov. 25th and Thursday Nov. 26th. We will be open normal hours on Friday and Saturday but with the number of covid cases still rising, we are still limiting the number of customers in the shop at one time and a mask must be worn.

From Blackbird Designs
We are taking PRE-ORDERS for this book. It will not be arriving until sometime after Thanksgiving.  It is a softcover book that features 4 previously released designs and 8 new ones.
