Hi Fellow Stitchers!         

    You're going to see (and hear via phone and email) a possible new face (and voice) in the shop on Tuesdays and Fridays (and an occasional Saturday here and there) .... Michelle Griggs is maybe 'new to you' but she has been around for a loooong time!  Michelle used to work at SNT back when we were still in Davison and is the one totally responsible for my getting online ... back with the Internet was little and new and AOL had a cross stitch chat 'room'!   (THAT was a long long dial-up time ago!!!)  Since the shop business has increased so much and I'm not getting done what I should be doing 'in' the shop, Michelle is my newest employee .. with a bubbly personality and  is dedicated to customer service - WELCOME Shell as you learn the new ropes!!!!

   

 

And with that, here's what has just arrived at Hoffman Distributing ...

I'm very intrigued by the designs by designer Cat And Mouse Designs .. check them out!!!

SEE THEM HERE!

COPIED from THE HOUSE OF STITCHES Newsletter:

If you see a design that you like; buy it!  Buy it NOW!!  We can never be sure how long something will be in print. And, most designers do not let us know when they discontinue a design.  We find out the hard way when we try to order it for you. We are getting calls and emails nearly every day from people who are looking for charts that have gone out of print.  I hate it when we are not able to get you the projects that you want!  So, this is not a shameless sales ploy; it is an earnest attempt for you to be able to obtain the charts that you need.

    Today is my dog Whittaker's (Whit's) GOTCHA DAY!   Yup, 1 year ago today we picked him up from the Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Indiana and brought him home.  He's still a handful, but we can see where this big boy and is growing into learning how to be a 'dog' and get/give love. 

He's JUST learned how to DO "puppy dog eyes" to get what he wants and has that 'trick' down pretty pat!   LOL    The barking we will have to live with, but having that DNA test done early on and learning his breed makeup (50% Great Pyrenees/50% German Shepherd Dog) has really helped us to understand his makeup traits and how to deal with stuff he does.  No idea what happened to him in his first 2 years, but now at 3 1/2 years old, he has learned a lot, is insanely smart, and .... we'll keep him!    Whit says WOOF .... Ari says Big Woof   (at least they get along as big CAT sister and little dog brother)

          OK .. I think that's pretty much it.  Got to go stack wood and then ... maybe stitch .. maybe read ... who knows.   So, until next Sunday and your update ...... Stitch Happy!!
