Happy Mother's Day!

Hope you all are having a good weekend! It has been a while since our last post........time flies when you're having fun.
It took a few days to "recover" from our "wild and crazy" CSI was so much fun to see our friends and meet new ones. The ladies had such beautiful stitching projects they were working on, they are a very talented group.
Jessie and Bob had Alice Christened, she wore the same Christening dress that Jessie had worn (and Katey had worn, too). It was a nice ceremony with Amy as Godmother and Josh (Bob's brother who was home on leave from Iraq) as Godfather.
Holly has been busy getting ready for our July Retreat with Sue Hillis as our special guest! Holly has alot of exciting surprises in store for the weekend. We look forward to welcoming Sue Hillis and all of our attendees to Branson for the weekend!! There is so much to do in Branson, there is something for everyone!
Pam has been knitting alot of quick projects, using 1 skein of yarn........hats, baby sweaters,bonnets...........we got a new book in the shop with projects that use 1 skein of yarn. Pam just loves the book, it has lots of neat knitting projects!! We have the Eros yarn back in stock. It is a beautiful ladder/trellis yarn that can be used for many different projects. Alot of our ladies are making some really pretty necklaces with the yard. We also got the rolls of mesh to crochet the "scruby pads" - it is an easy and quick project - takes about 20-30 minutes to crochet the scrubby!!
I have been working on Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow - I am working on block 9. It is so much more colorful than the picture shows on the pattern. Three and a half blocks to go and I will have completed the whole HRH series. They are easy to stitch, it is so awesome to see the squares progressing into a completed design.
We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler. It is supposed to be in the shop soon, maybe this week!!! It will use Weeks floss and fabric(your choice of 30, 35 or 40 count). I can't wait to see it!!! I will be stitching it as it comes into the shop (in 3 parts - May, June, July). Let us know if you'd like to join our automatic for this "mystery" project!!!
Got to get going...............hope you have a great Mother's Day!!! Enjoy your stitching!!
Take care,
Margaret, Jessie, Amy, Holly,Kacy,Pam, Cindy and Ann
