Wedding at Mermaid Cove
There's a wedding on this sunny day at Mermaid's
Cove! Look at all the little "brides" and "groomsmen" dressed for the wedding! Do you see how the bride
just seems to sparkle
on her special day? Look,
there is even a whale signaling lots of good luck on the horizon and a mermaid at the lighthouse watching all of the festivities!
It's a wonderful day in Mermaid's Cove
Mary E Allen Sampler
The Mary E Allen Sampler was stitched in 1836
along the North Carolina and Virginia border. We have reproduced this sampler using the same 26ct raw linen and silk,
however we do give the option for you to use Sampler Threads as well. It incorporates cross stitch, rice stitch, Algerian Eye and Smyrna stitches. It is a fun glimpse in
to our past.
Our pumpkin patch is haunted! Just look at the pumpkins-they have all
sorts of bats, cats and monsters peeping out of them and dancing all around them. Some of them are glowing the dark! These
pumpkins are full of mischief!! They are even stacking themselves 2 or 3 high so that they can hop our and scare anyone passing by. It's going to be an exciting
Halloween at the farmer's pumpkin patch this year!
It's early in the morning in Birdtown
and all the birds have started to leave their nests to start the day. The sun is coming up-listen, did you hear
it? It is the first tweet of the day. All the little earshave perked up for all the news to be gathered in the
first Moning Tweet!
