They are Here!

The P.S. Santa with his
snowshoes, following last
year's Santa with his skis.

I like the Halloween chart, especially the 4 square picture. May need to do it.

But I really like Santa's Night. Don't want to do it on black, but how about a deep rich blue to look like the night sky? I'm also thinking about using some of the Mill Hill metal snowflakes. Won't have to stitch all those flakes and you'll add some dimension.

It's Here!! Part 3 of the Mystery Sampler. We have a couple extra patterns available on all parts, so you can still get the entire set. We were all trying to guess what would be part 3 but I don't think any of us thought of a house on a hill with sheep.

July 26 through July 30 better be cooler! We will be celebrating Christmas in July and
Halloween in July! You know both are just right around the corner. July will be over in just over a week. Schools are starting around the 25th of August and that isn't far away. So now is the time to start thinking about Christmas presents and Halloween decor. We will have ALL Christmas and Halloween on sale. Get 20% off all Christmas and Halloween charts and 15% off fabric for any Christmas or Halloween chart. The chart could be purchased that day or previously purchased. You just need to identify the holiday chart you are purchasing fabric for to have it discounted. If you purchase a Christmas or Halloween chart and get fabric for that chart in the same purchase, you will receive an extra 5% off your entire order.

Our mitten classes last week went really well. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We even had several ask about some type of ongoing wool class or get together to work on wools. Anyone out there interested in learning more about Wool Applique and getting together to work on wool projects? Shoot me an email or give me a phone call.

Stay Cool!!!!

New Halloween Collection

Just Cross Stitch Magazine issues a special Christmas Ornament issue each year. Preorder your copies now. The last several years have seen a Halloween Ornament issue and you may want to preorder your copy for this now.

This year they have come out with a special soft-cover book Halloween Collection. 1oo pages of Halloween ornaments and ideas in full color. Over 50 exclusive cross stitch designs.
This book is due in the end of August - time to stitch a couple for this year but think of the headstart you can get on next year's Halloween ornaments! Reserve your copy now at the price of $16.95.

Hi Everyone, Last call for our Stitching Pizza Night on tomorrow, Friday July 8. Still have room for a couple more. Don't forget our Wool Mitten Classes on Thursday July 14 and Saturday July 16. Still room for 2 or 3 in each class. Call and reserve your seat today.

I can't keep up with Little House Needleworks. I no sooner get a new ornament in with supplies, then I see a picture of the new ornament coming and then I get confused as to what's out and what's coming. Pine Tree Inn arrived last Friday and now this week we're seeing Baked Goods. Are you stitching the ornaments? How far along are you? I wanted to stitch them each month as they came out and display them this year. Boy I must have been having some sort of manic attack. I haven't finished one, let alone at least 6 of them. Boy was I dreaming!!!
