Hi Stitchers -
This week's new arrivals are posted. Our favorites are from Homespun Elegance! Also check out By the Bay, Imaginating, and Primitive Needle. There's more in the Merchant Mall that will come in next week.
My babies (I mean CATS!) celebrated their second birthday last week. Where does the time go?! Although there are not new photos, I did post a photo of something I stitched in their honor. It's a complimentary pattern from Brittercup Designs. We've got complete kits with linen, overdyed floss, and the button for $2.95. We'll also include the pattern with any orders this month if you request it.
We'll leave the Open House page up for a few more weeks. The store displays are also pretty much still intact although the trunk shows will leave after the end of next week. Come see them while they are still here.
I did something new (for me!) last weekend. I wanted to start stitching on Peaceful Paradise (from Midsummer Night) and had my heart set on using a 36ct linen. I didn't have the right color so I dyed a piece of white linen with coffee. It came out great and was soooo easy. I encourage you to try it sometime! Needless to say, I've started stitching on it and love it. I'll have it in the shop if you'd like to take a look and I'll be happy to share the process with you.
I look forward to being able to donate many bookmarks to the local library! There will be more info coming but I wanted to let you know so that you can start stitching!
See you soon -
