We're Just "Marching" Right Along!!!

Today is Granddaughter Chloe's 5th Birthday!!!  Where does the time go???  I sang "Happy Birthday" to her over the phone this morning (now her mother will have to take her to a hearing specialist!!!).  She informed me that she was 5 now and that this is her "actual" birthday!  We will celebrate together on Sunday!!!

Market was this past week end in Nashville so there are new things trickling into the shop now.  I did not go this year as I spent the week before in Oregon visiting my oldest sister.  I did however release 2 small designs in time for the market.  "White Winter"  and "Spectacular Spring".  These are stitched on 25 count Lugana over 2, easy to work on and quick to stitch!  "Awesome Autumn" was released previously. 
 "White Winter"
 "Spectacular Spring"
Our February drawing winner isssssssss.......   Denise Creech!!!!  Denise has won a "Sunflower Seed" gadget block!!!  It includes a beautifully turned laying tool, a magnetized needle slot and the front slot is for stitching scissors!  Congrats Denise, hope you enjoy it!!!

St. Patty's Day is almost here but not too late to get a little design stitched up for your celebration!  We have a number of small designs to get you in the "Irish Spirit"!!!  Come check them out!
 A few of the "NEW" designs have arrived from Prairie Schooler, Little House, Country Cottage, Crown and Thistle, and Homespun Elegance.  New Lizzie Kate will be coming very soon too!!!

We've gathered several "Stitch-In" questionnaires and compiled the results of those.  Everyone please look this over and if you have other ideas please let us know.  If there are no other suggestions we'll make our decisions and post them in the next blog or two.  I think this would be a very fun event.  Tell other stitchers that may not be on our mailing list too!  The more, the merrier!!!
Think that's it for now.  Hope you all have a "Happy St. Patty's Day"!!!......Anita
