We have new things posted on our What’s New page at There are two more months in the Cricket Collections series, all 3 parts of Lizzie Kate’s Snow Story series have arrived and Blackbird Designs Garden Club Series Part 2-Apple Orchard is here. If you are looking for a beautiful Christmas gift for a stitcher be sure to see the Blossom Scissors sets. Beautiful!

We have a number of things that arrived too late for us to put pictures on ...the website: Bent Creek’s Ice Skating Snow Globe, Santa Sheep and Little House of Ginger; Country Cottage’s Gingerbread Village Part 2 and Winter Seasonal Celebration; Little House Needlework’s Born in a Manger, Christmas Angel Ornament and Three Snowy Hills; Nora Corbett’s Leaf Collector and Berry Collector; Heart’s Content’s Cherry Recipe Box and Louis Lobster Needlebook. Stay tuned! We will have these pictured on the next update.

I hope all of our U.S. friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for. I felt blessed to spend the day cooking, eating, laughing and even washing dishes with family. Today it was back to work and the Christmas Countdown is on! If you want to have something framed for Christmas please try to get it here tomorrow. There is still time to stitch ornaments (the little sleds from Foxwood Crossings are very popular), towels, bookmarks and paper weights! Gift certificates make great gifts for your stitching friends.

I am thankful for your continued patronage!

Ready for a new project?

Our What’s New Page has been updated with wonderful new projects that will make your fingers itch to start stitching them! You can see the list here:  If you would like to see photos of all the designs at one time, go to our catalog and type nov15a in the keyword box.  The focus is shifting to more Christmas and holiday themed projects but there are still a few autumn designs if you are not ready to say good-by to the wonderful fall colors.  It is amazing how fast the year is coming to a close.  If you need gifts for stitching friends, take a look at the new Sweetheart Tree kits.  Linda Myers has two new Quilt Sampler charts.  Just Nan’s latest Gingerbread Mouse (Reindeer Mouse) is here as well as a biscornu and a needle slide to store your needles.  You will want to see the latest designs from Kathy Barrick, With Thy Needle and Thread, Plum Street Samplers and Shepherd’s Bush.
What projects have you been enjoying? I am continuing to have fun with quick to stitch projects. I just finished a Little House Needleworks ornament, Ding Dong Merrily on High and before that I stitched Birdz & Bugz (a fold up stitching case) from Lizzie Kate.  My current project is also from Lizzie Kate: Jingle All the Way.  I think it will be finished in plenty of time to display THIS Christmas!  Did I mention I am having a good time with fast projects?
A few things arrived too late to get in this edition of our update but you can order them by putting a note in the customer comment section of your order form.  We have November and December from Cricket Collection and the newest Lizzie Kate designs.  As always, we look forward to providing you with all of the things your stitching heart desires!
