Here in California our governing officials have decided to put us on water rationing and we can't water our grass or gardens to maintain them the way they should be. I have decided that to give us a chance to have some beauty in our spring and summer months, we need to be stitching flowers. Soooooooooooooooo that means anything in the shop that has flowers on it is on sale for 35% off, starting on Saturday, May 2nd to Saturday, May 9th. Now is the time to stock up and enjoy the beauty that you can give to these floral designs.
There are many new canvases still coming in from the show and what fun we have been having with them. I personally have been working on the Hanukkah pieces. They certainly are coming out nice and are a quick-fun stitch. I have also been working on a piece that was offered as a class through the San Diego ANG group called Walking the Water's Edge. I have included a picture of the ones that I am working on. You can post to our Facebook page your WIPS. We love to see what everyone is stitching.
These are the pieces I am working on while I am in the shop and I have a cross stitch sampler that I am working on at home, when there is time.
There are new designs by My Big Toe Designs and From Nancy's Needle. You can see them on the web page we have for them. These two and a few others up on the What's New Page in the next couple of days. We are trying to update the web page as quickly as possible.
Dorothy will be teaching the Butterfly Effect on May 30th. You can see all about it on the class page. While you are there don't forget about the Halloween Train that Nancy is teaching. You can jump on board that ride anytime you would like. I will be teaching the Blue Carnation Bargello pillow on June 6th. You can see the picture of my finished piece on the class page also.
There is going to be an online needlework show being sponsored by Norden Crafts in August. It should be fun as you will be able to see the same items that I see and order through me. They have promised to have many specials and limited edition items. I will keep you posted on the upcoming event but make sure you save a date between August 10 and 19th to spend sometime enjoying this event.
So back to stitching and making a dent it what I have to do. I am sure you all understand that.
