Big storm coming......if you listen to the weather channel it sounds like the storm of the century is coming. I hope not. We will plan for the worst and hope for the best.   We have batteries, non perishable food, water, dog food, and ice. I think we are ready.Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those in the path of the storm. Be safe. On a happy note - if you don't lose power think of all the stitching you can get done.

So excited about the new With thy Needle and thread patterns. Brenda- you never fail to excite us. Those should be in the shop next week. I love the letters to Santa. That will be my first stitch! Love the ticking and am hoping to have that here as well.

Don't forget about our birthday bash on November 10th with Nan Lewis. Lots of folks have mentioned that they will be coming by and helping us celebrate. We are working on some terrific deals and having a model sale as well. I am cooking up some treats too so it should be FUN!

Last night we had our annual Halloween party. The ladies are always up for a good time and the costumes were hysterical. We had: Eeyore (twins), pumpkin pie, a witch, Honey Boo Boo ( this was unbelievable), a serial killer, a dyer, a pig, Paula Dean and a sugar skull.Thanks ladies- you were all great.

Pat and I leave next week for West Virginia. We are giving our lecture at the university on Thursday night. They are expecting snow- hope not too much- we want to get to the football game next Saturday.  Morgantown is a gorgeous town and the university is fabulous. If you haven't been there its worth the trip.

WE have some BIG and exciting news. Dyeing to Stitch is moving. Yep- right down the street. Our new address is 5312 Kemps River Drive. We will be next to Super Wok.( former home of Tidewater Folk Art)
We are closing November 16 and will reopen November 24. This is going to be so great. Hope you will come by and see the new shop.

We now have two finishers for the shop. So get your Christmas projects in and have them turned into spectacular treasures for Christmas.

I am a little sad not to be home for Halloween this year. I usually dress up and I try and dress  up all three of the dogs. .None of them act too thrilled. I had a Scottie who has now passed away but he thought Halloween was inven ted for him. When the kids approached the door and yelled" Trick or Treat" all he heard was Treat which he thought meant he was getting a treat. I would put on his pirate costume and he would wait patiently for each little goblin by the door. Halloween will never be the same without you Duncan.

  I hope this storm passes with minimal damage and everyone stays safe. My wish for you is that you have lots of stitching time this week!


  1. Batten down the hatches! We'll keep positive thoughts and prayers that it will not be the Frankenstorm they're predicting. Stay safe, stay stitching. ~*

  2. Ann - Love your new blog-Is the lecture at WVU open to the public? I haven't read anything about it - not always good at reading the newspaper. Terry

  3. Yes the lecture is free and open to the public. Hopefully the weather will cooperate so we can get up there.
