Say it Ain't so!

Before I came down to the shoppe today, I quickly ran over to my local needlework shop:  CrossStitch and Frames Unlimited, in Hamilton NJ. [Mercer County]. And what sign did I see>>>'GOING OUT OF BUSINESS'   sale.   I have to say I am so sad to see this happen.  Maybe I did not support them very much, but geez oh pete...they had so many threads, and miscellaneous pieces.  I am so soo sew sew sorry they are unable to keep going.  Please oh please...support your local shops...maybe a few pennies more will keep them going.

Happy Mother's Day

Yellow Roses from the garden outside of my shoppe.

My mother's favorites, mine and my sister also.
Samantha is standing next to the roses, modeling a sweet bishop dress which is going off to a raffle. I hope the recipient enjoys her doll and clothes.

Happy Mother's Day to all...memories of my mom are sweet treasures today. Memories of my own young mother days are just as sweet. May all have wonderful days as mothers.

Barefoot Samantha in her bishop dress. Swiss overlay is from Bear Threads with pink rosebuds on scallops.

Creativity for a Cause



Remembering to load photos to the computer is the problem. But now here is what the shoppe donated to the auction. I hear it will be well worn. Glad to hear it. Wear it in good health.



This little fella is one of four bears adorning a sweet baby blanket for a sweet little one soon to be part of our family. Hand embroidered on some fabulours Australian Wool Blanketing. Thank you Country Bumpkin and Inspirations magazines. Both of the above projects are from the talents 'Down Under'.

Creativity for a Cause

Today is MRV"S Creativity for a Cause event in the village.  Village wide, it offers participants 2 workshops, lunch and more with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.  Today, we are helping OFFICER DOWN, a group supporting police, fire and other first responders and their families. 

This morning, the shoppe will be doing a silk ribbon embroidery workshop.  Lilly of the Valley in silk ribbon . see the older post for a photo.

Next Creativity for a Cause will be November 13th. Don't know what charity, but it will be fun.  See you all soon.
