Boxes greeted me everywhere today.  Fed Ex delivered charts and Weeks Dye Works, UPS delivered charts and Priority Mail delivered fabric.   I'm in heaven!  It's Christmas in May!  I just love boxes of goodies and I'm going to share some of them with you right now.

Blackbird Designs' Mother's Day and In Full Glory have arrived!  Can't wait to start In Full's patriotic and I love patriotic just as much as I love Halloween :)

Did you stitch any of our sleds last Christmas?  Well there's another new pattern out...Touch of Turquoise and the designs resemble quilt patches.

Pineberry Lane has just brought us Elizabeth Pickford 1842, an antique reproduction sampler; Heartstring Samplery brings us Simple Living Sampler, with a cute verse; and Plum Street Samplers offers On Prudence with the best reason why we should keep our secrets to ourselves.

See anything you like, just let me know.  Phone or email and we will ship it to you or put it back till you can get in to pick it up.

By the way, do you follow us on Facebook?  If you don't, stop in at Just Cross Stitch, PA and LIKE us and get quick updates on the shop!  If you just check our blog, that's fine, too and if you want to be added to our shop email list, just email me at and we'll add you to our list.

Here's the best stitching accessory ever......serve up your coffee, tea, or beverage of your choice in this 15oz ceramic mug and stitch the day or night away.  $12.00 each.  Because of the weight of the mug, shipping will be based on your postal zone if you need it shipped.

Aren't these pillows adorable?  I  just love them.  It's going to be hard to decide whether to do the series as individual pillows/ornaments or stitch them all as one large design.   Decisions, decisions, decisions.......

They strike again with 2 new designs due out shortly.  The first is a Reward of Merit called In Full Glory and the second is the next Loose Feathers Design, Mother's Day.   I love stitching patriotic designs so this is a definite 'stitch' for me...a quick one:)

Lizzie Kate has a few new ones coming out in May.   A Little Beach is a new one for her 'Little' series and would make a cute gift for that friend at the shore who you visit.  Busy Bee is busy in the sense that there are 3 designs in the chart pack.  I have a 'thing' for bees, so this gets to go in my 'to stitch' pile.  And the last also makes the honor to go in my pile, after all, it's Halloween....Tingles.
Once again, her flip-it series is based on Halloween but it's a bit more vintage sampler looking than any of her others.  The flip-its will be coming out 2 designs to a flip-it.  They can be stitched individually or all together as shown.  The stitch count is 81x333 on 28ct milk chocolate. ..12x30 inches in size.  Also, while you are stitching the series, there will be a mystery to keep you guessing.

Here's a pic of an Easter Bunny I adapted a couple of years ago.  I used JBW's French Country Bunny as the pattern and had it made into a stand up.  This year I stitched the same bunny on 32ct White Chocolate fabric with a dark chocolate overdyed floss.  I'm getting it back from the finisher this week and I'll post a pic for you to compare the two.  This just goes to show you can do almost anything with any pattern.....use your imagination!

Sorry the pic isn't better but I actually scanned him into the computer.

Hey, Snowmen lovers, aren't these so cute?  They are brand new from Mill Hill and designer Debbie Mumm and they will be arriving soon.  There are 5 ornaments done on perforated paper.  The kit includes everything you'll need to do the ornament....perforated paper, floss, needles and chart.  They should be here by the 16th so come check them out!

Also coming, hopefully at the same time, a new fabric from Zweigart.  I saw it at market and  a couple of customers have inquired about it so I decided to bring it in.....32ct raw linen with white points.....

A couple of charts are calling for this fabric and I saw a pic yesterday on Norden Craft's facebook page that showed Country Cottage Needlework's Santa's Village series done on this fabric.  It was fabulous.  Check it out and get some ideas how you can use this new fabric.

Just got Autumn Quaker Sampler back in from Rosewood Manor.  The Valdani thread pack is absolutely beautiful!
