Catching up with everyone!

I am soooo sorry that it has taken so long to post again. It seems that life has gotten in the way of getting to the computer.

First, pictures of the wonderful day that we had at the Stitch and Frame Shop in Rock Hill, SC. The staff were great.

The customers were so nice and so much fun. We received some great ideas from them and we are so humbled and inspired by all of the ladies!!

November flew away with Susan and I both sick with the latest bug.

The hardest thing that occured in November came at the end of the month with the death of my beloved mother-in-law Louise. She died the day before Thanksgiving very unexpectedly. We have been so devestated. She was so kind and loving. She had struggled with a disablity from a severe stroke she had at age 25 when my husband was 6 months old. She was an inspiration to us all.

Susan has been sick again for the whole of this month with respitory infections and ear infections. Her family went to Disney World and she stayed in the hotel because she was so sick. She was supposed to go to back to work today--kindergarteners the last day of school before Christmas.

We will be posting pictures of our new designs for Nashville 2010 as we finish them. Hopefully in the next few days we will be showing our Tiny Pumpkin Etui.

We hope that you and your family will have a blessed Christmas!

Happy Stitching!

Saturday we're heading to The Stitch and Frame Shop!

Road Trip!!! Saturday Susan and I are heading to the Stitch and Frame Shop in Rock Hill, SC on Sautrday October 24, 2009 from 11am -3pm. We are so excited to meet some new friends and to sign charts. We still pinch ourselves, we can't believe that we are really doing this. If you get a chance to come, please come and talk awhile! We will have all of our new designs there. You will even get to see the newest things that we are working on... maybe I can sneak a picture or two on to our blog as well.

I got to see my granddaughter (19 months) this past weekend. What a busy girl!! She wanted lots of attention and Mimi or Papa was her #1 choice. She lives 5 hours away and it is not always easy to see her as much as like we would like.
Here 's a picture of the cutie!

Hope to see you Saturday!

Saturday Trunk Show at our Local Shop

Saturday was the trunk show at our LNS Things Remembered and Unique Framing. We had such a great time. There were so many people there. By the time I remembered to take some pictures the crowd had thinned out and you can see Susan and Crystal taking a snack break!

I did surprise Margo as I made a picture of her--she was really concentrating!

One of the regulars of our stitching group, Crystal, was there. She has been stitching one of our designs Sunflower Bee Garden

For some reason I never was able to take a good picture of Crystal except from the side or back--camera shy??

Here is a picture of one of our latest designs Black Cat Manor on display. It comes our on October 7th at the online Needlework Show! It is so much fun to stitch!
We will have 3 more designs at the online show as well--the next installment in our Simple Gifts series. This one is called Simple Gifts--Thanks. We also have two small Christmas ornaments, Peace and Christmas Poinsettia Topiary. You can see pictures of them at our web page!
Happy Stitching!

Other office highlights

Our work table is not very bigand we are always looking for ways to organize. Our computer is right behind the table so that we can stitch design and type together. Here are some of the designs that are in progress. Not too close yet--they are still not finished!

We also have a sign that was made by Pam's Dad. We have used it at a trade show and it is really special to see!

Our office and other disasters

So many of you would like to see our office (a small converted bedroom at Pam's house) and see what we are doing. Well here it is. All those bright colors are not just on our designs! We love color and we have lined the wall of the office with floss. What inspiration!

But that is only the two walls--turn around and you see--more floss!
