This issue of Stoney Creek Cross Stitch Collection is quite a comprehensive issue  The Summer bellpull, seen on the cover above, is included in it's entirety and ends their 4 season bellpull series

Along with their usual inspirational pictures, this issue includes 2 Christmas ornaments and the start of  the Halloween Village afghan.  This series will run through Autumn 2017....a long stitching project.   Also included are charts to create 2 pillows ( or they could be framed) that would be great for Valentine's Day or I think they could make a cute wedding gift.  Check out this new issue, hot off the press, for over 17 ideas for your next stitching project

2016 is bringing a exciting lineup of projects according to Just Cross Stitch magazine.  The first is a series called Seasons in Chalk Art, a collaboration between cross stitch designer Cathy Habermann (A Year in Chalk) and chalk artist Priscilla Blain.  This series includes chalk art that is adapted to cross stitch.  The other series being started, both in the February issue, is the Hardanger Band Sampler.  This stitch along style project will present one band of the sampler per issue giving you a full sampler at the end of 2016.

Another new addition to the magazine in  2016 is the Sampler & Antiques Needlework feature.  Each issue will include a reproduction or antique-inspired sampler or needlework project.

All this and more is included in the February 2016 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine, on sale now at Just Cross Stitch in Lederach.  Get your copy now.

Yes, it's that time of year when the weather turns bad.  Guess we're lucky that it's mid January and we are going to get our first real storm.  Just Cross Stitch will be open today till 6 and Friday 10-4.  I'm not opening Saturday unless this storm completely misses us and I don't think that will happen, listening to all the forecasts.

This girl is a fair weather girl and I don't do ice or deep snow.  So if you're coming out to the shop on an 'iffy' day, please call first and make sure I'm here.  Don't call at exactly 10am, my scheduled opening time.  I may come in a little later after the heavier traffic is gone.

Well, hope you have all your supplies for your current project so you can stitch and watch that white stuff fall to the ground and pile up!  Ugh!!!

Stay warm and safe.

Is it too early to start thinking about stitching for Christmas 2016?  Apparently some of our stitchers don't think so, because they want to have a Christmas stitch-in and we've got it scheduled.  The cost is $5.00 per stitch-in and we are going to meet on the 2nd Sunday of the month starting Sunday February 14, 2016.  The time is 12-4pm.  You can come when you can and leave when you need aren't tied in to the time, but you must stitch a project with a Christmas theme.  We've already 6 people signed up for the group, so give me a call and add your name to the list and we'll see you Sunday February 14 with your Christmas project, large or small,  when there will be about 44 weeks till Christmas.
