HOT AS BLAZES!
Yep, we are definitely in the South this week! Supposedly temperatures are to start dropping soon and get us in the mid to low 60's. We are looking forward to that break.
This weather gives us a great excuse to stay inside and work on our upcoming Uniquely Yours With a Twist Zoom Classes starting soon. We are continually seeing new canvases as participants share with the group what they are going to be working on. I am so excited to see the wide diversity represented in those chosen.
If you would like to join us just email us at email@example.com. This is a 12 week adventure beginning September 15 with makeup date of September 18. The weekly classes will be each Wednesday at 7 pm EST and Saturday at 1 pm EST. Mark your calendars.

ETSY SHOP - duodesignsbySandra
This past week we managed to get some of the smaller canvases download into the shop. Have you seen the Vehicles series? So cute!
There is also a submarine, a helicopter and a train engine as well as a Cloud and sunshine if making a mobile. These can be cute stand ups, ornaments, hand toys, etc.
Check them out - very manageable.
We are also starting to add some of our cross-stitch chartpaks to the Shop. This week we added Colors of Christmas It has been a long time favorite of ours. This can be a needle roll, pincushion or insert.
SANDY'S SATURDAY STITCHES
I trust you have made copies of the notebook pages and are ready to get going.
The first stitch I am going to share with you is the skip tent stitch. This is a stitch that can multi-task! It can be a background stitch, clothing, flooring, plants, animals, almost anywhere you can see using a semi-open fill.
The stitch is worked similar to the basketweave - which means diagonally. Just follow the numbering.
