Are you getting in the mood yet?  Perhaps you still have lots to do.  Don't stress - think about the past and how you always get everything done.

Are you a member of our Paper Doll Club?  How cute are these jammies, toasty and warm as we head into winter.  It is never too late to join one of our clubs. This canvas comes with a stitch guide too!

The attention to detail is fantastic.

Easter Bunny

Here is something that would cheer anyone up.  Thanksgiving is a week away and we are in Holiday mode but if you hate winter start thinking Spring and get a project with some bright colors.  This egg was stitched by Allie.

Suede Bags

Are you thinking holiday gifts yet?  We have these great suede bags that don't require sending out for finishing.  They seem very popular and suitable for all ages.
 Check out these Bonjour Magnets. They make a wonderful gift for the holidays and the best part is that they can double as a key finder for your purse.

Well - I guess it took more than stopping into the shop to see Lee's pillow.  Eventually I will learn to send photos corrrectly.  I am keeping my fingers crossed it will work this time.  Posted by Picasa

Lee's Pillow

Well if you have not been in the shop this week you missed Lee's pillow. How gorgeous and different is this? It is an Orna Willis Design. Check out all the detail.

Oval Box Class

This is a canvas that we purchased from DJ Designs. Helen will be teaching this class in January using ribbons to construct the flowers. After it is completed it will be made into a small oval bax approximately 3" x 41/2 ". It is a must for every powder room or ladies room.

Sorry Meredith - I didn't mean not to display the picture - I am still in the learning phase of blogging. I guess I would much rather be needlepointing.

I just wanted to say that I thought this canvas was really cute and I love the way she paired it with the ghost magnet to mind her needles.

Fall Canvas Selection

This is a sampling of some of the canvases the ladies worked on. Many were small in the hope they would be finished in a day however with all the laughs, goodies and raffles nobody seemed to complete their project. Oh Well - there is always next year.

Fall Fun

Our Marathon Sunday Fall Fun Party was a huge success said all the ladies at the party. 

Ten ladies stitched the day away while making new friends and enjoying laughs as they worked on their Fall themed canvases. 

Lunch was provided by Whole Foods and the big question of the day was "When are you holding another stitching party?"

Cathryn talked up the class she will be teaching for us beginning in January called the Background Sampler.

Mary Lynn's Stockings

Mary Lynn did this delightful pair of Christmas stockings for a wedding gift. The stitched parts are the toe, the heel and the cuff. Then the finisher creates the rest of the stocking from Velvet. They are fantastic looking but require much less stitching. They are also on #13 mesh.

Mary Lynn loves glitz so she used lots of Kreinik. The stockings are by Kelly Clark.

Baby Sampler

Amy had her first grandchild in July. Before the birth, we had seen this lovely birth announcement by Barbara Elmore. Then, we had our letterer do the lettering.

We just think it's just lovely. It could be done in just the plain stitch or one can embellish it with stitches. We are dying to see what Amy is going to do!
