Here's what just arrived today and some of what's coming....

Spring Snow by Ink the outdoors?  This is a great piece.  Size is 107x80.

Halloween charts started arriving early this year and they are still coming....Merrie Halloween from Pineberry Lane, done on a 30 count, finishes at 7x7.75.  And best yet, no color changes!

Hinzeit brings us an assortment of Halloween designs....Spooky Alphabet, 139x163 on 28ct.  Broom Hop, on 28ct, with 44x151 stitches.   Finally, Nevermore is stitched on 28ct, with 65x48 stitches.  All of the charts include charms.

Block Party-Home is the first of a 6 part series, each of which could stand alone.  The pincushion is stitched on a 28ct fabric.  The top and bottom measure approximately 4 inches.

Also by Hands on Designs are the last 2 chalk boards....November and December.  Wasn't it just yesterday that she came out with the first one?  Boy, does time fly!  By the way, we still have mounting boards available to attach your pieces with velcro.

Edgar's Manor comes to us from Threadwork Primitives.  Stitched on a 32ct fabric with design size approximately 3x5.

Christmas Quaker is another in the series From the Heart, NeedleArt by Wendy.  Colors used are rich, Manor Red, Ye Olde Gold and Balsam Fir from Classic Colorworks.  On  a 32ct fabric, finished size is about 4x8.5.  I love this Quaker series and this is a must stitch for me.

Finally, the next in the Sampler series of ornaments from Little House Needleworks ...Merry Christmas.

Tidings of Joy is also shown stitched over 2 threads in the larger pillow and over 1 in the smaller version.  Love how she has finished them.

is upon us and Just Cross Stitch will be here at the shop.  We will be open regular hours on Saturday from 10-3 and since Sunday is the first Sunday of the month, we will be here 11-2.

Don't forget Prairie Schooler has put out their last annual Santa and if you are missing any, give us a call and we will try to fill in the voids.  Some are still available and some are not.  We've also placed all Prairie Schooler charts on one rack so you can find what you want easily.

Just in today from Plum Street Samplers:  Olga's Tart, stitched and placed in a small tart pan, and Blackberry House, shown in a stitching cabinet, but would look very good in a frame on your wall.
