Here's a cute summer design...Lazy Days of Summer, from Serenity Stitches, a new designer to the shoppe.  Cute and inexpensive finishing idea for a short term viewing project.

Also from the same designer, a few new Christmas designs in Christmas Cuties 1.

The Pet Store joins the ranks of the Hometown Holiday Series from Little House Needleworks.

From our local designer, Lila's Studio, comes Barefoot Days - Summer.  These flip-flops are awesome in person.  Stop in and check them out...she did such a great job in finishing them.

New from Glendon Place....Cruisin'.  Need I say more about this witch?

A Year in Chalk continues this month with September and October charts.  Ursula Michael has a new chart Bless the World with Peace.  More have arrived along with some favorites that were out of stock.  Come on in and check out all the new goodies and old time favorites.

Here is Lesson Three from the Serial Bowl Collection of Plum Street Samplers.  It will be shipped next week.  Something for Christmas will be coming and the next 2 scheduled Serial Bowls will come out this year or maybe into next year.  It is stitched with 8 colors from Classic Colorworks on a 36ct fabric.

I've been rearranging the shop and pulling and combining charts and I found one Lesson One so grab it while you can, as Lesson One and Two are both sold out.  We still have a couple of Lesson Two

It's that time of year for  Prairie Schooler to release their annual Santa and their Christmas and Halloween charts for this year.  And they just arrived.  Here's pics....

Night Flight is the Halloween card for this year and finishes out about the size of the annual Santa if done on a 32ct fabric.

Bump in the Night can be stitched as one piece or individual ornaments,

Witching Hour  is a one piece stitch with 2 small ornies.  I'm thinkin' that you could do just the house or the witches on top as ornaments, too.

For the Christmas season, she gives us Evergreen.  Again, one piece or small ornies.

 Also released is Collection F...the mini-cards she offers as freebies or on charts.  This collection of 10 cards contains 3 never seen mini-cards.

And LAST, but not least, the 2015 annual Prairie Schooler Santa.....the last one.  Yes, my fellow stitchers, Prairie Schooler is retiring.  So now's the time to get those Prairie Schooler titles you've been thinking about.  She will be closing up shop in early next year, so don't procrastinate!  (Quite appropriate verse, don't you think?)

Here's two sneak peeks from her new summer offering...A Little Mystery.  The top shows the threads and a folded sampler.  The left, a peek of the bonus.  The project this year is smaller than last years.  Each of the three parts comes with a bonus project.  The entire piece is stitched on 30ct sandstone fabric, but you can choose your count and color, as fabric is not included in this project,  You can use your stash of threads for the project.  It calls for GA Avocado and Hollyberry; WDW Carrot, Verdigris, Chickpea, Oscar Grits, Purple haze and terrapin; and DMC #437, 3354, 3042 and 3768.  Or, we will have the colors available.

An embellishment pack contains goodies for all projects and costs $14.50.  Each part of the design retails for $7.25 each.

The stitch count on the design is 65x161.  The bonus fob is 35x39, the bonus pillow is 49x50 and the mini sampler is 46x79.

Sign up today for the project.  First part ships July 15 and remaining parts ship 8/12 and 9/9.
My deadline for ordering is July 1, so call today to get your summer mystery sampler.
