Big holiday weekend coming up. Hope everyone has something fun planned. I know its the start of the summer but really enough with the rain. We will have flippers soon......However my peonies are truly gorgeous with all of the rain. I have been bringing them into the shop by the armful. I think I have about 40 bushes now with white, pink, red, fuchsia, purple and now yellow. They are so beautiful.

Here is another prim tag winner- Dede. Isn't this a clever finish? Love it!

I wanted you to see the last prim club stitched on 40 count. One of the local stitchers- Donna- finished this. Isn't it sweet? We have plenty of 40 count at the shop if you love the way this looks................

I also wanted to mention that we do have in stock the Celebration fabric called for in the JCS magazine ongoing sampler for this year. Several people have called to ask and yes, we have it in stock along with the special DMC and the paillettes.

Have you seen these sampler stitching boards? They are FABULOUS. You slide them open and you can put your project inside with the threads, scissors etc. We just got a shipment in- have been out since Nashville night. Let me know if you want one.

This is the new box from Liberty Hill- Schoolgirl workbox for the Needle. Isn't it great? Carolyn is so talented. She has been painting things for all needleworkers for years. This set comes with the box, project board with thread ring, heart shaped scissor fob and small stenciled bag. I ordered immediately so let me know if you would like us to reserve this for you! They should arrive late June.

This sampler is Anna Nichols from Ohio. She stitched this and actually sewed two pieces of fabric together with the long zigzags in the middle. Anna was practising her W's in this piece like many young girls do at a tender age dreaming of the special someone they might marry someday! So primitve and so so sweet.......

I should have more to report but we have been working like crazy women trying to push a mountain of fabric out the door. I think about 350 yards have been shipped in the last week. Hope we can have a short rest this weekend.......


  1. Anna is fabulous, as is the box. Lots of goodies in this post including one of my favorite flowers. But no puppy!

  2. Trying not to bore everyone by adding Abby every time. Next time though- she just had her first groom!

  3. Nice photos!!!! And, I've emailed about buying one of the darling sampler boards..... I MUST have one...... Like Marly, I love Anna's sampler......
