It is 7a.m. and I am ready to get going with Market but unfortunately it does not open until 1 p.m....bummer.
We will be posting to Facebook as much as possible from the show floor. You don't have to be a member of Facebook to stalk our page. You can email us at email@example.com with orders or inquiries. If you are on Facebook just message us through Facebook.
Lisa has updated the Web Store with some new canvas that have just come into the store. The stars are adorable from Melissa Shirley. Though they are not new they are new for us.
Market is this coming weekend so be sure and stay turned to the blog for updates on what we find.
When I come back from Dallas I will be bringing Maggie and Gail from Maggie Co. and Ewe and Eye. Come join us on Wednesday afternoon , September 30 from 3-5 for a meet and greet. Come see in person the new designs introduced in Dallas.
Surprise....I did not fall off the face off the earth. I just took a break from the blog for the summer.
We are having a Kangaroo Paws Fraternity/Sorority Trunk Show. Rush is in full swing and Kangaroo Paws has the cutest designs out there for Fraternities and Sororities. They do not have a web site so I have taken a bunch of pictures. If you are on Facebook you can see many of their designs.
This is information concerning a lost cat in Georgia. Please be on the lookout for anyone trying to sell him. Any customers in the area please be on the lookout.
The image of Cubby in the tree was me posing him for photos. He can climb a tree but I was trying to get the fall colors and he likes birds and squirrels. So that's why he's up there. He is a very robust cat of 17 lbs. Registered Ragdoll, TICA Champion. So in my mind the person that may have taken Cubby knew they were stealing a purebred cat (perhaps to resell). I also have a very mean neighbor, who may have hurt Cubby. I am sick with grieve and worry. I went into anaphylactic shock from a wasp sting... he was out in my yard with me as he always follows me around and plays while i'm gardening.
I am sorry for the lack of posts to the blog but I have been stitching like a mad woman. I am terribly behind on the 12 Days Panels and I apologize to those of you who are doing the club.
I decided I needed some other show besides NCIS to watch while stitching. So Saturday before last I started a West Wing Marathon. I love that show. Why can't we have more shows like that on T.V. today? I wonder if the powers that be would consider doing a show with Rob Lowe as the President, since they hinted that he had aspirations. What a great show that could be.
O.K. on to needlepoint topics...
When we had the Needlepoint Facebook group here several weeks ago, Brenda Stofft had designed a Scissor Case for them and we got many requests to make it into an ornament. Brenda sent me a picture and we are taking orders. Please call the shop to order 512-451-6931. I will place an order around June 15th so you can look for delivery probably beginning of August.
Cost is $55.00 and it will come with a guide. If you want threads just let us know when you place your order.
Sandy Arthur has asked that we be the exclusive shop for the"Beijing Butterflies" that she is doing for her next Mystery Class. You can get the particulars about the piece and other Mystery Classes she is doing on her blog

The canvas cost is $194.00. There is no thread kit yet as she is still stitching it.
Our goal is to get you your canvas by the beginning of August if you order your canvas by June 1st. If you order it after this date it may be a little longer.
When you call to order your canvas just let us know if would like threads and/or stretcher bars.
We are happy to order the other canvas she is offering as a class, "Easter Wreath."

Corliss came up with a great stitch that would be wonderful for fish scales or feathers. Use 2 different fibers for the 2 stitches.
When Missy Gray and I got home from our Santa Fe road trip, we immediately had a store full of people. The Bluebonnet Bag Lady Conference 2015 was a fun fulled 4 days of stitching for 25 ladies. Brenda Stofft was able to join us again which was a wonderful treat. Until next year ladies.....
No sooner had these wonderful group of ladies left then we had another great group come in for Laura Taylor.
We are so excited to offer this very special canvas depicting Charles Wysocki’s “Rooster Express”. After several phone calls and conversations with the Wysocki Estate Laura gained permission to have it painted and reproduced for our class. This canvas will only be offered for class and cannot be purchased after the class takes place. We are honored to offer the “Rooster Express” and cannot wait to see Laura’s interpretation of this folk art gem.
We had Brenda Stofft paint and recreate it for us only as she could do.
We will be offering an Encore of this class August 7, 8 and 9, 2015 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
Sign up for the August class has a deadline of May 10th. We will only be ordering enough canvas for the class and must get our order in by the 10th. Don't hesitate....
Between Llano and Fredericksburg on Highway 16 there is a beautiful road called the Willow City Loop. It meanders through private ranches and it just amazing. The vistas and fields of wildflowers are amazing. Because of the rain and cold winter we had the Bluebonnets are particularly stunning. The white Poppies make the fields look they are covered in snow.
