Even though we are having very summer like temperatures this week; a look at our What’s New page (http://www.houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm) will let you know that autumn is fast approaching (at least in the northern hemisphere). Here in the U.S. we are observing the Labor Day holiday this weekend with an extra day off work and school to stitch. I have my projects lined up; do you?
Our new page includes charts from Country Cottage Needleworks, Jardin Prive, Little House Needleworks, Imaginating, Just Nan and With Thy Needle and Thread. If you missed getting Just Nan’s Witchy Mouse last year; she is available again while supplies last as well as Witchy’s Sister Mouse! If you are in the mood for something a little different, be sure to see Carre (Square) and Spirale from Jardin Prive. Heart in Hand continues the new Double Up series with Thanksgiving. Click on the link above to see everything for yourself.
We are making final preparations for our Stitchers’ Day Out on September 12. It is so much fun planning the special treats that are in store for the participants. We have one space open if you would like to join us. (For more information go to http://www.houseofstitches.com/events.html and scroll down a little.) Lori Markovic from La-D-Da Designs will be our teacher. A trunk show of her designs should be arriving on Friday, September 4. (If the USPS cooperates!) It will be exciting to see so many stitched pieces in person!
Have a great holiday weekend. (If your country does not give you an extra day off, double your stitching time on Sunday!) We appreciate your continued patronage!
