Whoooo!!!! New...FROSTY FOREST

This picture is very appropriate this week :)   Monday I worked a little around the house; Tuesday, went to Delaware with a friend to the Christmas Tree Shop and had lunch...a full day and I was tired when I got home around 7PM; Wednesday through Friday, I worked at the shop, grocery shopped, prepped and cooked for our Halloween Party tonight.  This is the last meeting of the Black Hat Society 2013...tonight is our party so I prepared food, purchased party plates and decor  and stuffed goody bags.  I'm just about done.  A friend is coming at 3 to help set up for tonight, thank goodness.  And of course, it's been warm all week and I've not been sleeping...I'm tired.  And to boot, this is the Sunday I'm open, so, rest will begin Sunday at 2PM when we close the shop doors.  Oh, I forgot, I even had ' time'  to make an emergency visit to the dentist!!!

Well, just got news that Country Cottage Needleworks is starting a new series in November and running for 9 months.....Frosty Forest and it looks real cute. Each design will be about 4 inches square and can be stitched as ornaments or together on one piece of fabric.  I understand the designer is stitching them 3 across and 3 down.   I have a sneak peek and I can give you the titles and you can  just imagine.....Raccoon Cabin, Snowy Deer, Snowman's Cottage, Snowy Friends, Bluebird Cabin, Snowy Foxes, Snowgirl's Cottage, Snowy Reindeer and Frosty Forest.  Feel the snow falling in the forest?

Call today and add your name to the list to reserve your copies.   Just think how appropriate to be stitching this snowy series when the snow could actually be falling outside.

Lancaster Co Mennonite Repro Sampler and more....

Samplers Revisited has created a reproduction sampler...Fianna Grube 1849, a classic Mennonite sampler from  West Hempfield Twp., Lancaster Co., PA.  The stitch count is 323 x 323, yielding a finished design of 18" on a 36 count linen. Absolutely on my 'to do' list as I just love German motif samplers.

New from I Stitch Designs are Sew a Quaker Pinwheel, which would make cute pincushions and  Sew The Sampler Guild.
