It's the month of Halloween! How the witch flies!

We have some new Halloween (and lots of other projects too) in the shop. First of all, by the Primitive Hare, "Halloween Cubes."
Also by the Primitive Hare: "Pumpkins in Love."

Lots of autumn projects by "Just Cross Stitch Magazine."

"All in a Night's Work" by Cherished Stitches.

"Eat More Candy" by Amy Bruecken.

Also by Amy Bruecken:

"Boo" pillow stitched and finished by Minnie. Love the design and the hanger (and the perfectly applied welt).

Stitched by Helen, from her stash (design not available from the shop):

"Triora Witches Trials," by Primitive Hare: "I grit my teeth and they say I laugh." Oh, my. Stitched by Jan. Note the cool needle-minder; perfect for the project!

Stitched by moi: "Jane Clarkson" by Samplers Revisited.

And a close-up of the brick house. Why is stitching bricks so satisfying?

Silver Creek Samplers' "Holy Moses," which I started quite a ways back.

It's getting chilly, so I took "Winter Welcome" (Country Cottage Needleworks) out for a spin.

Christmas isn't far behind the chill! A few of the many Christmas items that arrived in the shop: "Christmas Means More" by Heart in Hand Needleart.

By Country Cottage Needlework, "Dear Santa."

And this lovely, which we decided would be gorgeous on blue opalescent fabric too: Little House Needleworks' "Moonlight."

To order for questions, please call 703-360-4600. Our hours are 10-5, Monday through Saturday, and 12:30-4:30 on the first Sunday of each month. Stitch nights are the first and third Wednesdays of the month. Our address is 8800 Pear Tree Village Court, Alexandria, VA.

Happy stitching!
