What's New in the Shop, and Nearly Fall

The fall ornament on our blog header is part of a chart of four seasons. Here's the spring one. Don't you love these? I've had them in my collection for years and have started one. We still have them in stock (darned if I can remember the name, but call the shop, and one of our clever ladies will know!)

Speaking of clever ladies: just look at the amazing little Nantucket basked that Linda needlepointed! Something else amazing about Linda's many skills: she actually weaves Nantucket baskets!

Linda needlepointed this ornament as well!

Lois, one of our ladies, stitched this for her collection. And it just came back from finishing. I absolutely adore the dark plum feathers, don't you? I'm sorry that I didn't get a better close-up shot--it's quite fun and remarkable. We can arrange for our finishing service to do something like this for you!

We have lots of appealing new Haloween projects in the shop. This one is by Waxing Moon.

A cute prim pillow by With Thy Needle:

"Autumn Typography" by Just Nan.

Another Halloween cutie by Just Nan with an adorable little grim reaper charm.

Heart in Hand's "Halloween Parade" and

Bent Creek's Pumpkin (won't take you long to stitch this, but how cute to put in a little frame or finish as a tiny pillow).

And for winter, as a companion to "Six Fat Men," we have the newest Lizzie Kate snow woman series.

And also by Lizzie Kate, I love the idea of wishing that "sweat pants were sexy."

By Sam Sarah, we have part two of this series:

And another bird in the flock:

We have "English Adam and Eve"; unlike Prince Harry, they are fully dressed and not prancing around Las Vegas.

Last, but not least, is the darling "Gus Ghost." He's a little kit--you'll have him put together in no time. I love his little eyes.

Stitch Night will be back on September 5! We hope to see you there (6 p.m.-9 p.m.) It will be wonderful to catch up with everything everyone's been working on this summer.

To order or for questions, please call us at 703-360-4600. Our hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12:30 - 4:30 the first Sunday of each month.

Happy stitching!
