Cross Stitch Market
We are almost ready for cross stitch market! We will hop into the car and drive over to St. Charles, MO. (Right outside St. Louis, MO) Haul all of our props and books into the Embassy Suites and set up for the show. The past two weeks have been packed with photography, writing and proofing new items. Joyeux Noel is our newest book...40 full color pages of holiday fun. Get ready to stitch a bit of French charm into your holidays this year. Inspired by an antique sampler purchased in the Paris flea market this book has something for everyone. Sewing boxes, pincushions, samplers and ornaments are just the start of the fun. Sixteen projects in all.
Barb and I are in the Bahamas. We flew out yesterday and right now we are drinking cute drinks with paper umbrellas celebrating this finish! The sound of the surf is so relaxing. Better grab my sun screen......aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh that's the ticket! (A gal can dream can't she?)
We will have three new patterns to sell along with the book. All will be delivered to my warehouse on Wed. I love the smell of the ink drying as we drive along the highway! Windows open and hair flying! Of course, there will be some stops along the way. We have several favorite antique shops that can't be missed.
I have several blogs you must visit to see what these ladies have been up to.....

Virginia has created a wonderful sewing box using our pattern Friends With You. This pattern is from the book My Heart Is True.
