Merry Christmas! Ready or not, it will be here this week. Are your projects all finished and wrapped under the tree? Mine aren’t, either but I’m getting closer to being ready. December has been busier than usual because my mom spent nearly two weeks in the hospital which was about an hour’s drive from here. With so much driving, I was grateful that our weather has not been snowy or icy…so far! As you may have noticed, I did not send a newsletter for the December 9 update. If you have not visited our website recently you will have two updates to peruse at http://houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm.
Fun new things have been arriving. We have the latest from Lizzie Kate: Very Merry Santa, from Plum Street: Merry Two, Merry Brew and Merry Ewe and from Shepherd’s Bush: Merry Little Christmas, Santa Box, Christmas Sheep and Noel Sheep Sled. Country Cottage Needleworks brings us Snowmen and the next ornament in the Gingerbread Village series-Gingerbread House 1. Little House Needleworks brings us Snowy Winter and Hometown Holiday-The Tree Lot (number 10 in the series, not number 8 like it says on the chart). Heart’s Content has two new kits: Cherry Recipe Box and Louis Lobster Needlebook. Nora Corbet has two new designs in her Black Forest series: The Berry Collector and The Leaf Collector. Poppy Kreations has a new chart for the golfer in your life-Wishin’ I was Golfin’. If you like stitching portraits of ladies be sure to see John Clayton’s Rachel. Trilogy brings us Giggly Wigglies Reindeer and Say Grace.
As the end of the year speeds toward us we are trying to avoid thinking about inventory. Nancy said to tell you to please buy as much as possible so we will not have to count it. Anything you can do to help will be appreciated!
Here are our holiday hours:
December 24 CLOSED
December 25 CLOSED
December 31 10:00-3:00 (Central time)
January 1 CLOSED
We hope you have special moments with family and friends. Take time to reflect on the reason we celebrate and let the peace of the Christ Child fill your heart.
