I think I'm finally ready to get this blog rolling! After much thought about how I never have time to get a "shop newsletter" out (plus how old fashioned is that!!!) this seems to be the answer to the problem. Running the store and designing takes pretty much all of my time but I can work on this a little at a time, when there is such a thing as "spare time"!

We have so many Halloween and Fall designs here in the shop I almost hate to think about Christmas! Fall is my very favorite time of the year with the rich earthy colors, the sounds and smells of leaves blowing and fireplaces burning. Fall is a time to fill our homes with the aromas of stews and chili's, pumpkin bread and cookies. Mmmmmm!!! What can be better. Make yourself a cup of spiced tea and pick up your favorite cross stitch project and stitch those long dark evenings away!

"Halloween Fun" is new for this season. It's quick and easy to stitch and has a whimsey/primitive look to it. It's stitched on the beautiful Picture This "Barnwood" Cashel Linen. We used bright colorful hand dyed thread from Weeks Dye Works to stitch this fun piece. Add the wonderful "Primitive Pearls in Black" frame from East Side Mouldings, set it on an easel and you have a great Halloween decoration for your mantel or side table.
