Baby it's cold outside! We have had two snowfalls in the last two weeks. Last week we received 11 inches which is a ton for this part of the mid Atlantic. The shop has been closed for five days over the last two weeks. If you have been trying to call- no , we did not go on vacation but with icy roads we did not open up.

I wanted to take pictures of the dogs in the snow but unfortunately they were not too cooperative. Abigail just had her first birthday so I will try and get a photo on here soon so you can she how she has grown.

I love hearts. I wanted to show you this chart from Examplars from the Heart. I changed all the colors and it screams Valentines Day to me.

This is Sarah Elizabeth Brook from Scarlet House. Pat started it last year but it got put away for a bit. Isn't she spectacular?

We are almost finished shipping the first Colonial Gatherings kit. Please be advised if there is a problem with your credit card I will call or email you twice then you will be dropped from the club. It's up to you to contact us with a new card number. We have had a flurry of new sign ups in the last week or so. We are waiting on extra supplies to make up more kits so please be patient.

We are busy prepping all the kits for the Ladies Prim Society.  Once we get the last batch of floss they will be on their way. This kit is a stunner!  I love it!!!!  One lucky participant in the club will receive a signed chart.  If you are the lucky one please contact me, as you are the winner of our first Ladies Prim giveaway for the year!

We are leaving for the Nashville market next week. The weather is always a challenge and it makes the coming and going rather scary. Once we are there with all of our friends- we don't care what the weather is! This promises to be a great market. We have had sneak peeks of many things and we stitched a bunch of stuff for several designers so get ready to be thrilled! We have a new fabric color- Hoffmans special blend done on 32 count for a special show kit from one of your favorite designers!

If you wish for us to bring back special things for you from market you can email us at or message us through Facebook.

Stay warm and dry and wishing you lots of exra stitching time!
