Good Evening All!

Just wanted to drop a little note before time gets away from me ... and it has been doing that a lot lately!  It has been a busy and productive weekend. I am taking the stitching right down to the wire for the Nashville Market.  Today I have been working on completing the 1st Ornament in the "Deck The Halls All Year Long" series.  It is called "Winter Wonderland."  I am introducing my little bear friend "Charlie" in this first ornament and you can expect to see a lot of him in the future so what better way than to have him be the first little face you see for the new ornament series!  I am just going to give you a little sneek peek here because the real unveiling is coming at the Nashville Market!  If all goes as planned, I will be releasing at least 4 new designs there and I already have several more in the works for release a bit later.
 Until next time, take care of your and yours and here's wishing you "Beary Happy Stitching!  Don't forget to follow us on Twitter @thestitchngbear.  No "i".  We have a nice little contest going on for copies of our soon to be released designs!     Deb

Happy Valentines Day!

Hi Everyone!
Happy Valentines Day to you!  I am sorry I haven't written in a while but I have been so busy with designing and stitching getting ready for the Nashville Market Show the first weekend of March, I don't know if I am coming or going!  These late nights are getting hard for this ole' gal!  We will be releasing some brand new designs in two weeks at the show, and we have to keep them secret for now but I can tell you Part 1 of our new 4 All Seasons Sampler Series called SPRING will be released and I absolutely love all the colors we used from The Gentle Art.  I am hoping we will have a thread bag available of all 23 colors ... I will keep you posted and of course you KNOW we don't do much without also including a button or two from our friends at Just Another Button Company! :)  We are also releasing the 2nd design in our Chocolate Lovers Series called "GOD & Chocolate" and was so much fun creating this one I sure hope you will like it and enjoy stitching it. Quite a bit different from our first one - Chocolate Understands.  Will look forward to getting feedback from you once it is available.  I am hoping to have two ornaments completed in time from our "Deck The Halls All Year Long" holiday ornament series.  This is my very first you can see...lots to do and get ready for the show.  For our shop owners who will be visiting us at the show, we will have a wonderful filled tote of Stitching Bear goodies for the winner of our contest.  Every shop with a paid order will be entered for the drawing and the winner will receive their prize on Sunday!  I also want to give a very special THANK YOU to my two model stitchers who have recently signed on to help me with some of my projects!  Thanks Amy and Erin (see her blog in our list.. Less B*tching More Stitching!)  I appreciate you both so much!
Well, guess I better get back to it.  Have a wonderful day and take care of you and yours.  Have a wonderful day of love and stitching...and if stitching in your love have the best of both worlds!     Deb
