The newest Lizzie Kate Mystery Sampler Part 1 has arrived and I can hardly wait to start mine. Of course, there is also all the new Just Nan which is also very enticing. I am including pictures for you in case you haven't seen them.

I hope you can see why I am so torn as to what to stitch next. As if there is not enough in my stash that I couldn't find something to stitch. These are only a drop in the bucket as to what is new in the shop. Make sure you check out the web page for all the new things and the Works in Progress page so you can see what others are working on. I think that is always very interesting. If you ever want to show off what you are working on, just send us a picture and we will be happy to add it to the WIP page.
The new Needlepoint Now and Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly magazine are also out and there are several items in them that are calling my name. As we are planning on teaching the Raymond Crawford Halloween Train after the first of the year, the Needlepoint Now magazine is a must. Nancy will be teaching it and has put some of her spins and loving touches on it. Please let us know if you will be joining us, so that we can order enough canvases and keep the stitch guides that are being published in the Needlepoint Now magazine.
I will be teaching the Patchwork of Peace by Mary Clark Donegan. I have been having lots of fun stitching all the parts to it This is a wonderful place to use your stash of red, white and blue. I have found that it has also made me do a bit of organizing so that I have all those colors in the same location, boy was that a job. I have had several people ask how long does it take to do a square and I have found that it is about 30 to 45 minutes which includes the picking of the threads, which is the hardest part.
We have a new page on the web site Shop Decorations. This way you can visit the shop virtually to how we celebrate.
Now I am off to stitch and enjoy my Friday because I have to work this Saturday. Since Saturday is my normal day off, I am going to try and stitch today.
