More and More Needlepoint Canvases

     We have been receiving more and more needlepoint canvases from the show that we went to in January.  It is much like Christmas around here.  I love it when the UPS, USPS and FedEx delivery trucks show up.  Everyone gathers around to see what surprises are in store when the boxes are opened.

     Just a quick thought!  What are you stitching?  Personally I am working on another stocking for one of my granddaughters, a sampler and gathering threads for the Harvest Canvas that is being taught by Sandy Arthur of Duo Designs.  Please reply to this post with some of your pictures.  We love to see what others are stitching.  Here are the ones I have in progress.  The stocking is from Liz and the sampler is from Nouveau Encore Designs.  Without going to far, of course there are many others that are WIPS but I really don't want to admit to how many, so please don't ask.


      With summer upon us I want to take a moment to remind you of the deadline dates for finishing for Christmas is October 1st.  It sounds like a long way off but in a blink of an eye it will be here.  I don't want any of you to miss out on getting your things done so I will just keep bugging you with reminders. 

     We will be receiving our Just Cross Stitch Halloween Edition soon.  To make sure that you don't miss out give us a call to reserve yours.

     We are looking into ordering a new (at least new to us) called Silk Road Fiber.  It looks like raffea but is made from silk.  We are also looking at the Planet Earth Fibers from Pepper Pot Silk.  I have stitched with this fiber and absolutely love it.

     With the 4th of July just around the corner, I hope that you have some fun plans for this wonderful holiday.  My family and I will be staying home and I plan on doing lots of stitching.  We will be closed on the 4th and 5th.  Then on the 11th we will be here for our "All Day Stitch".  

     So for now keep stitching and enjoying yourself.  I know that is the best time for me when I am stitching or playing with me furry kids.

                                                  Happy Stitching,
