New Colors Added & an Updated Design!

          It sure has been a long time since my last blog post. During my absence I had be super duper busy filling holiday orders, wow it was a marathon of nearly non-stop stitching! Worked real hard but managed to get all orders filled and mailed without a problem. Orders are continuing to come in but at a much more relaxed rate. I greatly appreciate all my customers who made 2013 a wonderful year and I look forward to seeing what 2014 has in store.

          I had hoped to introduce these new colors earlier but I just couldn't get the time to do it. However now that the Christmas gift giving season has past I've got some time to catch my breath. Introducing 3 new colors that are now available for the Shetland Sheepdog!

Revamped Bluetick Coonhound crate tag.

          Just before my busiest stitching season hit I had been working on revamping a couple of my old hound tags. So far I only was able to get one completed and as time permits I hope to get the other ones done later. Hound lovers rejoice over the new and improved Bluetick Coonhound design! The old design is still available but only for a limited time, afterward it will be retired for good.

          Now for a bit of not so good news....I've once again run into the problem of yarn colors (that I use) have retired. The light brown and mid grey colored yarns that I had been recently using is no longer around so the hunt for suitable replacements is once again back on. I hate when this happens. So my game plan to fill the void left by the absence of the light brown color will for me to go back to Red Heart's Warm Brown. I had initially used that color back at the beginning but some where down the line Red Heart had altered the shade of the color. I'll keep my eyes peeled for better replacement but in the meantime Warm Brown should work fine. The mid grey color is going to be super hard to replace, I had a dickens of a time last time. The good news is I still have a decent stock of yarn for that color. I'm hoping that before I run out a good replacement color will be located. I do have a back up yarn but the color doesn't satisfy my standards, it is do able but I would be much happier with a better choice. Everyone please keep your fingers crossed for me, this is the toughest thing to do is to find just the right shade of color in yarn.
