This is what I call the "WOW" Factor !!!

I wanted to share this "absolutely awe inspiring" sampler that was recently completed by one of my "stitching pals". We have it on display at the shop right now so please come and see it in person!!! Photos NEVER do a piece justice. You really have got to see this one!!! Reita stitched this beauty on 28 Ct. Natural Cashel Linen using Crescent Colours "Sister Scarlet" Belle Soie Silk. The design area measures 21 3/4" x 22 3/4". She set a goal of one year to complete this project and she came in 2 weeks ahead of her deadline!!! If you happened to notice a slight "quiver" in the earths atmosphere the day of completion, never fear, it was just Reita jumping for joy and shouting a giant "TA-Dah" !!!

"Scarlet Ribands" by Long Dog Samplers

Some new pattern arrivals in the shop follow below. We just got a new shipment from "European Cross Stitch" If you would like any of these designs or others you may see on their web site; just let us know. We're happy to do special ordering, we can't have everything here in the shop!!! Where's that winning lottery ticket anyway!
