New Arrivals at the shop for Summer

Hi All, sorry its been too long in between postings, life has just been in the way. But I promise to try and be better now. I do have lots to show you and some new happenings to tell you about at the shop.
Many of us have been busy stitching patriotic items, its that time of year. I've done a bunch and now I'm down to my last one for this year. Its a new Chessie & Me, came out a few months ago. It was a fun stitch. Comes as a kit with everything you need to complete the piece. Silk threads, linen and needle. Its called Liberty.
Cheesie & Me have a few of these great little kits out. I've done 3 others here as small pillows. They are on display on the counter at the shop.
They were so much fun to do and you can get them done in a few sittings.

Summertime is usually pretty quiet with new items coming in. But now, we are starting to see the Autumn, Halloween, Christmas and Holiday charts coming in. Guess its time to get cracking on autumn and Christmas models! Everyone waits for these new charts to arrive and I really like the new ones from Prairie Schooler this year. Here they are.

They look like so much fun to stitch!!!
We also are taking reservations for the new Lizzie Kate Mystery Christmas Sampler. It will be released in September and come in 3 parts. It is stitched on 28ct Doubloon Linen from Picture this Plus, or you can stitch it on 32ct. or the fabric of your choice. The threads will be Weeks Dye Works.
I don't know if you remember but last year Lizzie Kate did a Halloween Mystery sampler and it is adorable. She really has such a great eye for color and design. These pieces are always fun and happy to stitch and anyone can do them. I've taken a sneak peak picture from Lizzie Kate's site to show you the piece.
Isn't it pretty?? I like the colors so far. And I like that scissor, hmm, have to get some more in the shop. We also have new designs from The Trilogy, Erica Michaels, The Hearts Content, Sweetheart Tree, Lizzie Kate, JBW Designs, Little House, Country Cottage and more.
Another awesome project that just arrived at the shop is the 1st of the new Loose feathers 2013 from Blackbird Designs. This will be a series of 12 designs. We have this one at the shop along with the linen. They should be arriving monthly. Here is a picture of the 1st one.
Here are pictures of the next 5 coming out. Very pretty!!

Again, if you want to get in on the Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers, let us know at the shop, we will gladly put them aside for you.

Oh, almost forgot the most important thing. We are closed this week for vacation. That's from July 15th thru the 21st. we will be back Monday. Harley, Don and I are taking some much needed rest and relaxation. Harley needs to get in some swimming time. I will send pictures of him in the pool.
Take care everyone and we hope to see you soon!
