I hope this finds all of our US friends having a safe and happy Fourth of July celebration! We had a quiet day at our house….except when our neighbor’s tree lost a large branch. I thought they were setting off fireworks until I saw all the leaves in a place where they shouldn’t be! We were not experiencing wind; it just surrendered to gravity!
Our What’s New Page was updated almost a week ago so I am very tardy in letting you know about it! You can see the latest at http://houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm. It is an exciting update with the start of two new series: Spooked, Part 1 from Lizzie Late and ABC Samplers, Part 1 from Little House Needleworks. Blackbird Designs and Country Cottage Needleworks both have the next installments in their ongoing series. If you are collecting the What’s in Your Jar? charts from Needle Bling, we now have the August, September and October charts. We frequently have stitchers looking for charts to make miniature designs for dollhouses. Xs and Ohs has answered with a chart for a miniature tabletopper and rug!
I am off to grill some burgers and then watch fireworks! Then maybe a little stitching will happen. I am SO close to having a butterfly pincushion finished. It is from Blackbird Designs Butterfly Garden leaflet http://houseofstitches.com/detail.cfm?ID=35143 . Hope you can stitch, too!
