I hope you are feeling the Christmas Spirit taking over your stitching. Our What’s New Page, http://www.houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm, is brimming with wonderful new Christmas projects. Have you noticed the popularity of red pick-up trucks carrying Christmas trees as a decorating motif? They seem to be everywhere this year; on sweaters, pillows and cards to name just a few! Madame Chantilly and Needle Bling each have their own version to share with us. The much anticipated annual Christmas stocking has arrived from Shepherd’s Bush. If you are not quite ready to stitch for the holidays; there are new designs for you, too. Mirabilia has a new Victorian lady dressed in a stunning ball gown. And there are new fall and Halloween designs to tempt you. Take a look and let us know which ones you want to add to your collection!
