In April, Lizzie Kate will be releasing some new charts and here are some preview pics.
Her 3 Little Words series continues with Today Choose Joy and Never Give Up.
Flora's back with another sampler with words of wisdom...Collect Memories.
How to be a Mean Mother....maybe we should all be a little 'meaner' in today's society.
The next release is A Little Wedding. This come with a gold charm and 32ct lambswool. It should stitch up really quickly and can be personalized. Small picture that can be turned into a little pillow or framed inexpensively.
We still have some BUZZ kits which were introduced at market. The kit comes with 28ct Verdant linen, mother of pearl buttons and the finishing fabric to make this cute pillow.

Puffin and Company make beautiful needlework accessories. Their counting pin collections are very nice and work well with linen and aida fabrics. Made with tapestry needles, they are used to 'count' your work and mark your places. We have an assortment in the shop, fresh from market, for you to choose from, including the four styles shown here.
Picked up several of their niche boxes for needles this year. They slide open to store needles (or whatever) creating a box that won't open unless you want it to, making losing the contents nearly impossible.
Their needle threaders are great, including the new micro threader, shown here, great for petites and possible beading needles. We have several styles to choose from.
Their needle nannies are cute and original in design. New this year are the beehive, sheep, bunny and mouse. Come check them out. Just attach the design to the front of your work in progress and the magnet on the back and it is secure on your fabric or canvas and will hold your needles with a strong magnet and possibly even your scissors (if they are small). The magnets are so strong that you need to slide them apart, rather that pulling them apart.
Stop in and check out all the new goodies from Puffin and Company.

Plum Street Samplars was a popular place at market and by the time I arrived, she had sold out of the Lesson One of the new Serial Bowl Collection. But, it has arrived today in the shop. Make Use of Present Time is the first 'lesson' in the pincushion series. Can't wait to see the rest. I have to admit, I just love doing pincushions or pinkeeps or whatever you want to call them. They're small and I guess I get that instant gratification as they stitch up relatively quickly. This is a kit and come with the flosses and chenille trim to put around the finished pincushion. Enjoy!

Coming from LittleHouse Needleworks.
From Jeanette Douglas the next four charts and thread packs.
Needlework Press...here are pics of 3 of their new charts. The special kits...Alphabet spool and Head bands are on order. They were sold out by the time I got to their room and they are sending them to me along with some new sampler notepads.
Plum St Samplers has several new charts out and here's a pic of two. I've got their new series on order.
I've got to take a break loading pics as I can't remember who this pair belongs to...but I have the charts. (Oh boy, it's been a long weekend!)
The 2 turkeys above are Bonnie and Clyde!
From Carriage House:
A new one from Chessie n Me...
From the Heart is bringing a year long series....Floral Postcard. Here are the first three.
Also from From the Heart are these next 2 Quakers....
JBW Designs' new ones that I have brought home:
Getting the goodies unpacked today. More pics will go up later today. Weather is yucky and tomorrow will probably be worse. Call if you are coming out Thursday. If the weather forecast holds and it starts snowing tonight at midnight and will snow all day Thursday, I probably won't be here. I'll take the day and recover some more from market. This market was tough this year. More vendors than there has been, hence, more walking and carrying 'stuff' and for some reason, the driving really got me, this year. Oh well, it was FUN!!!! Always get to meet designers and other shop owners and chat and catch up.
Stay tuned for more pics.
