Spring projects

This is the week of the online Needlework Show. Be sure to visit! They've had a few bumps in the road this time, but everything seems to have been straightened out. Only retail shops may place orders at the show, but the general public is welcome to browse and we'll be happy to place orders for anything that strikes your fancy.
Mirabilia has a brand new mermaid - absolutely gorgeous! Mermaid of Atlantis. The official release date is May 1st, but you can preorder your chart now.

We only have a couple of Just Nan's Ladybug's Secret Garden left. Be sure to get your order in soon. I'm not sure when or if we'll be able to get more.
We are really happy to be carrying designs from Vintage Bliss Designs. Be sure to check them out!

Here's an update on my progress on Sunshine and Flowers from Cross n Patch. The stitch diagrams and instructions in Emie's designs are really excellent!

Emie Bishop has released the Christmas in My Heart series from the years 2002-2005. I'll be making these to use as gift tags for Christmas gifts.

It is finally Spring here. We can tell by the huge amount of rain we've been getting. So, it's also time to start thinking about Summer projects. Lots of new designs are coming out every week and we'll showcase some of the new Summer designs in the Summer section of our website. Be sure to stop by!

New items for April

Well, its raining and snowing here. While this isn't typical of April weather for us (at least the snow part), it does make for good stitching days.

We've added a number of great new items to the website.

Have you seen the designs from Ink Circles? This is Sea Stars from Ink Circles. Also see Garden Stars and Kaleidoscope.
More great news! We will be carrying the limited edition Just Nan WhimZi designs. We will only have a small number of these, so be sure to order early. The next one will be up this week. Spring Spell Limited Edition WhimZi is the first in the Spell Series. This one has flowers and a little bunny and baby chick and the WhimZi frame is lavender with a hand-painted Tulip charm.
We have also added Crescent Colours floss as well as the Color Variations from DMC. We will also be carrying rayon floss from DMC, Linen floss from DMC as well as Marlitt Rayon floss.
Be sure to stop by!
