July, 2015

Summer is here in full force.  We haven't seen these high temperatures in Victoria for years.  Today, temperatures rose to nearly 30 degrees, and tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter, (not that I'm compaining..maybe a little bit)! The city is very hot and dry right now.  No green grass in sight, but the flowers are still going strong.  Here are a few new things in the shop that you can take out to the deck as you relax and take in this amazing weather.


Beacon Hill Park.  We love to go here for a stroll at the end of the day to cool down.



Jeannette Douglas has a new design, "Oh Canada, True North".  Just in time for Canada Day. 


This patriotic Canadian themed sampler is stitched on 32ct. linen using silk threads.  A variety of stitches are used including cross stitch, and the finished product makes a beautiful memento.  Chart: $21.95.  Silk thread pack is available seperately.


The Victoria Sampler has some great new charts to stitch as well, like the Beach Cottage below.  This chart is stitched on 28ct. Cashel linen using silk threads.
