Sum- Sum- Summertime

We have lots of summery, flowery stitches for you to look at tonight!

First up is Scarlet Letter's "Jane Atkinson."

Patricia is stitching Jane--isn't she gorgeous? We ooohed and aaaahed, which kicked off our Stitch Night almost as well as the green horseradish dip we all enjoyed. Neither Jane nor the dip were shy and retiring! (Thank you everyone who treated us to fun refreshments!)

Lois Minshall is available again! Stitching doesn't get more summery than this: flowers, birds and butterflies. Lois is charted for 32 count fabric, using either AVAS or DMC.

Here's a lovely summer project from Blackbird Designs' book, "Souvenirs of Summer"--not a new book, but it would be a shame to miss out on this and the other wonderful projects. Definitely worth a second look.

Here's our shop model of "Libertyville" by Raise the Roof Designs. A portion of this fun summer stitch is also seen in our blog banner photo.

The Trilogy has a new chart called "Baby Line Up," pictured with most of the floss colors used. They're pastels with a twist. The perfect gift for a new mom.

Also by The Trilogy is the Summer "Sneak Peek." Here's the first part of the design (includes the buttons shown):

Little House Needleworks has some cute new designs. Love this Christmas Ornie.

This "Colonial Welcome" makes us think about touring colonial Williamsburg during summer vacations. Over the house is a compass, but it makes us think of the sun that always beat down on us while we toured Williamsburg--and while the kids moaned about wanting to go on the water slides at Busch Gardens instead of viewing history.

Speaking of vacation, here is a pair of shop models, finished as pillows.

You need these scissors by Kelmscott Designs! They're reasonably priced and pretty!

The new Vogue Knitting magazine for early fall is in the store, along with lots of fun yarns, including this Ironstone with a very long eyelash. Come see what you can knit with it, because, while summer is just beginning, fall will not be far behind.

Call us at 703-360-4600 to order or for questions. We are open from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and the first Sunday of each month (coming up this Sunday!) from 12:30-4:30.

Happy Stitching!
