We have been having a busy month here at Cecilia's!! Our shop expansion is still underway......they are supposed to be taking the wall down this weekend. And hopefully be done by the end of next week.........then Holly can start playing and arranging her vignettes! We are all so excited to see what wonderful ideas she has twirling around in her head!!
My Dad has been visiting from Boston this past week. He is having a good time watching all the changes happening here at the shop (which is named after his Mom). We also added "Ethel and Andy's Soft Serve Ice Cream"( named after my Mom and Dad) at AJ's One Stop next door to us. We create all sorts of ice cream treats, sundaes, malts and 'noreasters (kind of an ice cream mixed up with your choice of candy). So Dad has been making ice cream cones and having a great visit!!
My Dad also got to meet his 3rd great grandchild - Katie ( Jessie's baby) and got to see her Christened last Saturday. It was a really nice service, Katie wore the same Christening dress that her Mom (Jessie) wore - she looked so cute!!!
We have new items heading into the shop for Christmas!! Lizzie Kate's Merry Christmas by the Letter is a new double flip it with a Christmas theme..........really cute and so colorful -too!! Check out our deal that we have for you if you sign up for the automatic!!
Any Hawk Run Hollow fans out there??? Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow will be in the shop the end of September!! (Holly and I will be going to market in September - YAY!!!) Reserve your charts now!! We are also taking orders for the Exampler linen that it will be stitched on - we are using 32 count (easier on the eyes!!)
Don't forget about Pat Carson visiting us next Friday - June 12th!! Pat will be spending the day with us, teaching FREE mini classes, giving helpful hints and signing autographs. We will have door prizes, and Pat is bringing her private collection of OUT OF PRINT Sampler books and charts that will be for sale - over 30 years of needlework history!!! We would love to see you come by to say Hi to Pat !!! We are truly blessed to have her spending the day with us and sharing her vast knowledge of needlework with us!!!
We are down to less than 2 dozen of the Little House Rose Sampler Thread Pouches (limited edition of only 250)........so don't wait too long!!!
I am going to add some pictures to this and get it "published". Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! ?Look forward to seeing you soon!!
Margaret and the rest of the gang at Cecilia's
