WAHOO!!! The Halloween Collector's Issue Is Here!!!

Lots of "spooky" Halloween designs just waiting to be stitched!!! If you reserved an issue with us you may pick it up at your earliest convenience.  Another great Halloween book packed with small to large pieces from all of your favorite designers...    

 including The Sunflower Seed (pg. 47) !!!  This design is packed with spiders and flies, oh-my!!!
We also have the NEW Stoney Creek magazine packed with Christmas ideas galore!!  Come early, they don't last long in the shop!!!
Nancy just finished up a shop model for us combining all the Lizzie Kate "Squared" patterns.  It turned out so cute and so very colorful everyone will want to stitch this one up for themselves!!!

A couple of new design "sneak" peeks for you from The Sunflower Seed!!!  Here's a little addition to my "Sunflower" series! 
 And a "Fall-ish", "Halloween-ish" design that's a really quick stitch for you!  You CAN have this one ready for THIS Fall season!!!!
Just thought now would be a good time to offer a discount on 2 of our autumn designs.  With the high temperatures outdoors it's a good time to get a jump start on stitching Autumn.  Who knows, it may make you feel a little cooler just thinking about Fall!!!
A 20% discount will be offered when you purchase the fabric, thread and pattern on either of these 2 designs; A Harvest of Blessings and Acorn Autumn.  Discount only applies when purchasing all three components.

Lastly, I wanted to share a photo of my 3 African Violets!!!  I've had these plants for several years now and occasionally I will get "a flower or 2" but never anything like this!!!  I don't think they've bloomed at all for at least 3 years and now look at them!!!  I even caught my granddaughter Zoe plucking leaves off of them on one of her visits!!!The center plant now has about twice this many blooms!!!  Frankly, I usually kill them within the first year of having them so I don't really know what's going on!!!  But, they're making me very happy right now!!!
May your life be filled with blooms
and plenty of cross stitching for your hands! ................................ Anita
