While I am Canadian and appreciate the seasons, as I get older the coming of the cold holds less enjoyment with each new year. I am unprepared for the plummeting temps and the warnings of snow squall warnings on the radio today. If you are a little like me, the thought of staying indoors where it is warm might have a lot of sway right now. If you would like something to do while staying indoors, grab a nice warm drink, bring up our website and take a look at today's New Arrival offerings. Lots to check on this date, so click the date above and have some "warm" fun. For now here are just a few highlights:
Also from Imaginating a wonderful design called "Peace Snowflake"
Many of you have seen the design I stitched a number of years ago called "Ironwork Gate". It has been one of our top sellers of all time. CW Designs has come up with a new design that has a very similar look. From the Pastel Reflections Series this is called Pink House. There is also Blue House but it was out of stock when we ordered. We'll hope to get it sometime.
Make sure to click the date above and check out these and many other offerings that have just arrived.

The much anticipated release of Lizzie Kate's new mystery sampler "Things Unseen" is here. We had to take pre-orders for this and as a result by the time it was released last week our supply was dwindling. We still do have some Part 1 in stock, a few thread packs, limited button packs (but you really don't need those until the project is done) and we some of the Wren fabric in 14 & 16 count aida, as well as 28ct Cashel and 32 ct Belfast. If we have run out of anything when you order, Lizzie Kate's next ship date with Part 2 is mid December, so we'll have more of everything then.
