Hello Stitchers!

The last day to drop off finishing guaranteed to be returned by Christmas is this Saturday, August 12.  All items MUST be in the shop by that date.  So many of you have already brought in your treasures and my finisher and I thank you for your timeliness!  Due to the amount of finishing being received, please be advised that canvases bought at other shops may be refused for finishing or may incur additional charges.

I’ve added some SALE Melissa Shirley pieces to my website.  There’s the classic red angel Christmas stocking shown above for an unheard of price.  You can see the latest additions on my website here.  Check out the new Renaissance Designs snowman called Candy Cane and Ivy Patchwork Snowman too.

Oddly, this deer and Skye are the same color right now!  She  doesn’t  seem  afraid  of  Skye  and I wonder  if  she  thinks  Skye  is  just  a very  short  deer with floppy ears.  Haha.

Just a short newsletter today.  Talk to you soon.
