Posted by Keith Zeitlin

Hi All, There's an old saying here in America that Memorial Day is the unofficial start to Summer. Well it was plenty hot here in Colorado so I would say ya Summer is here. We have quite a few Summer Themed Cross Stitch Kits for you, we will list some of our favorites (a dozen) right after the Featured Kit of the Day. Just click on the name and it will take you right to that item.

Without a doubt one of our most popular kits is from Janlynn and called simply enough Summer Sampler. This kit offers you a taste of Summer from the Tomato Seed, and yes that is kids playing in the sand on the beach to the Summer Classic Baseball and everything that reminds you of Summer in the middle.

Of course we have a video of this summer kit for your viewing pleasure.

A MOST EXPLOSIVE TIME OF THE YEAR! New sights, sounds and smells to savor...fruits pop from tiny buds, bees and butterflies sip sweet treats and flowers send gentle aromas 'whifting' through the air.

This Counted Cross Stitch design is by Sandy Orton for Janlynn.

Many of you knew the graduate form a baby or as a small child or maybe from the pre teen years. What a joy to watch them grow up, and of course to us it seems just like yesterday they were in diapers.

In our feature kit of the day I think Walt Disney gives us some great wisdom for the graduating Class of 2011 " All our dreams can come true... if we have the courage to purse them"


Give some inspiration for life to someone who is graduating with this quote from Walt Disney. “All our dreams can come true…if we have the courage to pursue them.”
