More projects!

Wow!  I just scrolled through our What’s New Page,, and we have 62 (!!) new items to tempt you!  In addition to all of the charts, there are cute needle magnets and scissor fobs to make your stitching even more fun.  We have new Mill Hill Santa and snowman ornaments (designed by Jim Shore), a cute design from Bent Creek called Hoot and Twin Mermaids from Mirabilia.  Blackbird Designs is starting a new series called Garden Club and the new series from Country Cottage Needleworks is Gingerbread Village.  I need more hours to stitch!

I am running out of time today so I think I will close and let you get on to the new things.  Have a great weekend; I hope you can find quality stitching time.

Fall & Christmas stitching

Have you been decorating for fall?  I started getting things out last week and I fell in love with the beautiful colors of autumn all over again.  My mom and I went bittersweet picking and we found lots of the bright orange harbinger of autumn along country roads.  Our What’s New page ( has several great new seasonal designs: Autumn Trifles by Shepherd’s Bush, Fall Squared by Little House Needleworks, Pumpkin, Pumpkin from Scarlett House and Simply Autumn by Drawn Thread.

If you are thinking ahead to Christmas stitching be sure to see these: Up on the Housetop from JBW, Christmas Calories Don’t Count from Abby Rose, Christmas Memories from Blackberry Lane, Countdown to Christmas from Country Cottage Needleworks and Traveling Santa from Sue Hillis (The last in the series of 12 Santas.) Sue Hillis also has 4 new charts for those who love stitching, Stitches for the Needleworker-Volumes 1-4.

The Online Needlework Show is going on from October 15-20, 2015.  There are over 40 designers that are showcasing their designs!  If you are interested, just go to and click on the General Viewing link.  If there are things that you would like us, just let us know the name of the design and the designer and we will let you know the cost and order it for you.

I hope you have been finding time to stitch.  I have been doing small (I call them fast and furious!) projects lately.  I think last time I told you about the Lizzie Kate kit, Halloweenie that I had just finished.  I went right into another Lizzie Kate kit called Falalalala: It was quickly stitched and is residing in a tuckable pillow.  It was fun, quick and cute!  What have you been stitching?

Autumn stitching

Can you believe that it is October already?!  There was a definite chill in the air this morning and it underscored the fact that it is no longer summer. We have an abundance of new fall, winter and holiday projects.  You can see the latest at  I just finished stitching the new Lizzie Kate Halloweenie ( and it is really cute!  The colors are so vibrant and the kit includes great finishing fabric and trim.  It is fun to stitch and finish something quickly, especially after stitching a large project.  In this update we have the final installments in two series: A Year in Chalk by Hands on Design and Little Mystery Sampler by Lizzie Kate.  There are too many great designs to talk about all of them so I will let you click on over to the What’s New page and have a look for yourself.  Your continued interest and business are much appreciated!
