My first Tuesday off.....

And what did I do?  I cross stitch stash, that is.  Yes.  I started pulling out boxes and boxes of cross stitch stash, sorted and resorted, saved some, tossed some, some went in a bag for donation and more went in a bag to bring here to the shop for the May Stash to Treasure Sale.  I felt good at the end of the day, 3 boxes went down to 1 box.  Of course, there are lots more boxes to sort through, but at least I've started!

If you're sorting out cross stitch or craft supplies, don't forget to put aside to donate to our Stash to Treasure Sale.

The Blue Ribbon Mystery Sampler is expected to be shipped to shoppes on Jan. 21.  We'll call you when it arrives.  Here's a peek.....

Here's a peek at the new Lizzie Kate Jingle Flip-It series starting soon.  There will be 12 ornaments in different sizes and shapes.  All are coordinated so they can hang nicely on a tree or wreath, but, once again, they can be stitched into one piece.

 Three ornament charts will be arriving shortly.  An embellishment pack with red buttons, aqua snowflake buttons and white beads will accompany the ornament.  The ornaments are done on 30 count natural and the large combo piece is done on 32 amber linen.  The border for the large piece will be on Lizzie Kate's web page and there will be a special blog set up for finishing each ornament written by Mona, the finisher, herself..

Lizzie's also sending her next inspirational boxer, As for Me and My House.

La D Da's got a new release, arriving shortly,,,Big Red House.

Gotta go and get back to my inventory work!
