This has been a week of visitors..Last Sunday, Stacy Nash and her mom came down for the afternoon and evening, They wanted to visit the shop and we worked on some projects together with them. I'm not sure any of us stopped talking or laughing the entire time they were here. Had a great dinner together and were so sad to say goodbye. I think we could be BIG trouble together if they lived closer! Hope they will come back soon...........

Starting Tuesday we had lots of visitiors all on their way to the Pals weekend in Myrtle Beach. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new friends. Thursday several of our buddies from upstate New York  came for our Thursday stitch night as they were in town for a wedding. It was great fun to see them and to show them everything new we have been working on in the shop. Thanks Diane and Rabbit!

We are gearing up for our huge Birthday party on Saturday,  November 10th. This is our 7th birthday and we wanted to do something special. We feel very privledged to have Nan Lewis from Threadwork Primitves coming to join us for our party. She is bringing models ( ones we don't have stitched) and  will be available to chat with all of you  and to sign charts, etc. I hope you all will come out to meet Nan and see what wonderful work she does. We will have refreshments, a model sale, door prizes, and great bargains! Happy Birthday, Dyeing to Stitch!

Are you gearing up for your holiday stitching? There are so many new and fun Christmas projects to stitch, and lots more on the way. Have you seen the new Drawn Thread things for Christmas? I can not wait until they arrive. I will be starting one ( or two or three) the day they arrive. We have the new Shepherds Bush stocking with charms and have been trying to keep the Pearl cottons in stock for them. Its such a popular stotcking we are struggling to keep all supplies in stock !I know Threadwork Primitives has something new and wonderful coming soon for Christmas too. You'll have to come to the birthday party to check it out.

Our frame sale is going on for one more week. It ends next Tuesday the 30th. Its time to get your holiday projects in for framing while you can receive a 20% discount on your framing costs!

I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful fall weather. I love the crisp morning air, the fall colors, pumpkins, the entire fall package!

 As a lot of you know I love to cook. My friend brought me 50 pounds of apples from New York and I have been diligently making at least one batch of applesauce  each day . This sounds like so much applesauce but it will last us almost an entire year. Love it! I love to cook things from the Barefoot Contessa and now I am beginning to be addicted to Pioneer Woman. Great cooking and simple recipes that are fun to make and delicous to eat.

We are having our annual Halloween party with our Thursday night group this Thursday night. We have refreshments, and give prizes for the best costumes. Last year the costumes were outstanding and I can't wait to see what the ladies have dreamed up for this year.

Have a great week- stitch a lot and love what you do!   Ann
