The frogs are croaking, the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and sunset is 10 pm (and later!). Sure signs that summer has arrived!

This week we celebrate summer with graceful and elegant Jacobean designs. And, just like the temps, these designs are hot! Artful birds perch in colorful flowers and swirling leaves. A flamingo peeks out of a field of intricately detailed Jacobean blooms.

Fashionable hibiscus flowers are bright and sassy in pink orange, and yellow hues. Seashells, with delicate sea greens, are ready to add a splash of summer to bath towel sets and beach totes.

Bring a fresh breath of summer to your embroidery projects today. Scroll down the page, and get 'em while they're hot!
