I love this time of year. Patriotic stitching and decor are some of my favorites. Thought I would share one of my favorite pieces of folk art with you. This angel is so cool. You turn the star and her wings move and she plays God Bless America. Isn't she great?

This sampler is one of ours- Elizabeth Pratt. It's all stitched in cranberry and navy silk on 40 count. Perfect for the Fourth!

I am so excited about the next prim club offering. This is so unique- Nan has out done herself.  I thought we would have another contest.   If you become a follower of our blog and leave a comment between now and the 4th of July, I will stitch the letter of your choice and make it into a scissor fob to match the pin keep. This is a huge deal for me to offer to stitch anything but I thought it would be FUN!  We will start shipping on Tuesday the your mail box!

We have had a great response to the Every Womans Journey.  I mentioned that Sharon has a darling patriotic strawberry to go with the club offering. Isn't it adorable?  We still have some room in this club if you are interested.

I know many of you are coming to Virginia Beach or the Outer Banks this summer. I hope you will come by and visit us at Dyeing to Stitch. If you will be here over a Thursday night- call for reservations and come stitch with us. We are going to be closed July 3rd and 4th for the holiday. We will be open Tuesday July 2nd and reopen Friday July 5th. Hope to see you soon..............

I was so surprised last week when I received this FABULOUS bag in the mail from Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives.  Isn't it wonderful?  That Nan- always full of surprizes. 
I love it!

I was telling a few customers about this sampler. It's from Examplars from the Heart and the title is Forgiveness, but we changed it to Friendship. We also changed the colors, but isn't it stunning?

Wow- lots of fun things in the shop this week. We got the new Halloween string from Lizzie Kate- way too cute, the new Shepherds Bush kits, and the Little House Mystery sampler. We are expecting the new Stacy Nash Hollyberry Farm very soon. We can't wait to see it Stacy!

If you purchased the book- My Name is Lidya from us we should have the replacement books in soon. If you live out of town call me and we will make arrangements for a replacement book to be sent to you. Thanks for understanding.

Summer is here- it's hot and we are having some very scary storms at night. Hope you all stay safe, dry and are stitching like crazy. Til next time............
