It's Summertime!!!


Sorry it has been so long since my last update.............Summer is here and the grandkids are out of school, so we have been having fun and the time just flew by!

We have lots of new things to stitch at the shop.........Blackbird Designs has a really neat "purse" to stitch and finish - it will make a great project bag for a small project. It is done over 2 on 20 count Weeks Dye Works linen - really quick to stitch.

We finally got our Sue Hillis pirate finished and framed..........we love the saying!!(maybe we should adopt that saying as our shop motto?)

Our Fall stitching Retreat is sold out and Spring 2011 is sold out, too!!(waiting lists are available ,in case of cancellations) For Fall of 2011 and all of 2012 we have added extra stitching

retreat weekends - so check our website for the dates if you are interested in attending. We will now be offering 2 Spring Retreats and 2 Fall Retreats - we hope this will allow us to not have to leave anyone out that wants to attend.

My Hawk Run Hollow projects are getting done, in between a couple of quick projects that I have stitched. Christmas @ HRH is at the framers and should be back to the shop by Tuesday. Stop by to see it, the colors are so bright - it really stitched up beautifully. The Shores is about half done and Autumn is just started. They are really fun and easy to stitch!!

Pat Carson ( Designs by Gloria and Pat) came by to visit us last month. She very generously has let us offer to our customers her new chart.........It is a really cute, quick to stitch Patriotic chart. You can add beads and use DMC satin floss for the flag to add dimension and texture to the design. We always enjoy it when Pat stops by to visit us. She is a wonderful, caring and giving person and we are blessed to have her in our lives!!
Our friend and "table topper Queen", Ann, will be back from Florida next week. She spends the Winter in Florida and is usually back in April, so we are eager to see her get back here with us!!
When you are in the shop, you'll see many, many of her stitched peices hanging on the walls. She does great work and is eager to visit with our customers when they come into the shop.Ann is our official "shop greeter"!
Got to get going...........have some stitching to do!! Hope you are all enjoying the nice Summer weather!! If you are in Branson, come by the shop to visit, we would love to meet you!!
Take care,
Margaret, Jessie, Amy, Holly , Kacy, Pam and Ann
