I hope the New Year is finding you all well and happy. We have been blessed here in Naperville with fabulous weather for the last couple of months. Today it is 50 degrees out and totally not conducive to staying inside and stitching, BUT we are expecting "BIG" snow this weekend. What does that mean for me - worry for my daughter who is driving back to Nebraska for school accompanied by a lot of "extra tight" stitching tension.
January - The Meredith Collection:
Lots of 13 mesh available and so many designs it's hard to pick a favorite. This little "Tree Frog" is one of my favorites. All the 13 mesh animals retail for $212-$242 and the colors are fabulous. We shall see which ones make it in to my personal stash for a later date. LOL
City Scenes, Doors, travel vans and tons of ornaments round out the rest of the trunk show. And don't forget those state Santas too!

I hope to see you all in the shop soon. It has been such a fun last two years. I can't wait to see what 2020 brings for myself, my staff and all you fabulous stitchers. Don't forget about "Stitching with Deb" on Friday afternoon. I love having the chance to catch up with whoever stops by. I'm making some great progress on my succulent piece and have almost come to "love" the french knot. Stitch well my friends! Deb
