Where has the Summer gone??

Hi everyone!!

I can't believe that Labor Day weekend is in 2 weeks - what happened to summer? I finally figured out how late in the Summer it is when my Grandkids went back to school last week. The Summer just flew by!!

We had all 3 kids here with us in the shop all was fun to get to spend so much time with them. Tyler and Andrew are back in school , Tyler in Junior High and Andrew in 6th grade. Katey has learned to walk and run as fast as her little feet can go. She is almost 18 months old and is talking - just a few words - she has mastered the word "oh-oh!" She is really very smart and entertaining!! (that is Grandma's unbiased opinion).

The shop has been busy all summer, Branson gets lots of visitors and alot of them do needlework!! Ann is back from Florida and you can find her sitting in her glider chair, stitching and smiling as she greets customers!! Drop by and say "hi" , she will enjoy meeting you! She has already finished 4 pieces since she got back. 2 Lizzie Kates, Patriotic Tabletopper, and a Raise the Roof Clean and Green St Patricks Day clothesline.

Jessie has started a new "limited" page on the website. There will be GREAT prices on some very limited items that we carry in the shop. Be sure to check it out, you never know what she will be posting on the Limited page.

My Dad, sister and her family came to visit us last month. In their travels my sister found a bunch of Whitman tins - pink, green and anyone looking for tins, we have them!!

We have only about 50 left, so if you want one contact us soon!!

Holly and I are getting ready for Market next month. If there is anything that you would like , let us know and we will bring it back for you. Of course, we will have all sorts of new goodies from market. This market is always very exciting, with lots of new Fall and Christmas items to stitch. We will have market day.........Holly will figure it all out and I'll let you know.

We have the new Fall Lizzie Kate Scissor Fob Kit in the shop - I'm sure Holly will have it stitched up really soon!! Pam has been stitching a couple of Blackbird Designs, they are really nice, prettier than the pictures on the chart.
I've got to get going..........hope you all had a great Summer. We'll be glad when it cools down a bit (100 is just TOO HOT!!!). Check out our "What's New" page to see the new goodies we have in the shop. Take care,
Keep Stitching!!
Margaret, Jessie, Amy,Holly, Pam and Ann
