Hi Stitchers! It's a beautiful day today with some sunshine and, as of right now, no rain. We've had like 9 straight days of rain and I'm tired of it. My grass is so high that the mower man is going to have to use a baler to cut it. Oh well, that's his problem and not mine.

Just want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all! May you all have a wonderful day. You know the spring is pretty much behind us and summer is fast approaching. It soon will be Memorial Day weekend and you know Saturday May 23 is our Porch Sale with donated items and all proceeds going to St Jude's Hospital. The donations are trickling in but we can still take more. So sort through that stash of yours and decide what you may no longer want and donate it. We also will have a sale in the shoppe, so stop by our Porch sale and then come in and check out our specials. Be sure to stop in and pick up your Summer Coupon Card. This card will offer you one coupon for each of the summer months of June, July and August. When you use the coupon we will punch it and if you have all three punched, you can redeem the card in September when it will be worth $7.25 toward a chart of your choice. My customers have enjoyed using their coupons over the last several years and you'll be able to do it again this year.

Coming up, Christmas in July will be July 21 thru July 25 and all Christmas items will be 20% off. Halloween and Fall will be discounted 15% so you will be able to get a jump on all upcoming holidays for the rest of the year. It just doesn't seem possible that time is passing so quickly.

The new Blackbird Feathers #36 has arrived and it's really nice. We have the charts and the Marva Blend 30 count fabric to do the picture. If you purchase a chart, we'll offer you the 12 skeins of Weeks Dye Works at a special price of $21.00, that's a savings of over $5.00.This special offer is valid through the end of May.

Also new to the shoppe are 2 new aida fabrics from Charles Craft. You will be able to cast a magical spell with the shimmering new Stardust needlework fabric. It is 14 count and comes as Silver Dusted(bottom fabric) and Gold Dusted (top).

Currently available in 15"x18" cuts, each comes with a free pattern. A wedding sampler chart comes with the silver and a really cute dragon comes with the gold. Come check them out and I'll bet you'll be able to picture one of your charts on this fabric. Just imagine some Christmas chart on them or some of the ornaments you've been meaning to stitch from your Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Magazine. (The 2009 issue will be out in September.) I scanned the fabrics and I think the colors came out pretty good. Hope they show on your computer screen just as good as on mine.

Well, it's almost time to close the shoppe and I need to do a few things, yet. So see you soon and keep stitching.
