NEW Christmas Patterns have arrived!

DECEMBER WORD PLAY
First off is December's Word Play! If you haven't joined in on this monthly series,
don't fret, it's not too late! All twelve of these will be worked on the 35 count Abecedarian linen, this linen is just now back in stock. Floss paks, vintage seam tape trim and rusty bells are also available! Watch for January's Word Play to release on the 1st of December...let the stitching fun continue!!

BOUGHS OF HOLLY
The BOUGHS OF HOLLY pillow is worked on the Fine Ariosa (22 count) over two threads...11 count! The bigness of the cross stitches on this loosely woven cloth is a mix to die for. The cloth is first distressed before you begin and it totally changes the texture and feel to this cloth that has a Rayon fiber content. We sell this cloth in 18" squares, you will need to purchase 2 squares if you choose to back the pillow in the same cloth. We have 4 bolts of this cloth in stock...as you know cross stitch cloth can be a hot commodity at times...feelin' pretty good about that!! Floss pak for this pattern is also available.

RUDOLPH
Rudolph is first punched, then sewn and stuffed into a fun tree ornament! Rudolph is sporting St Nick on a snowy Christmas Eve on his belly. A tiny red bell gets sewn on for his nose and twiggy antlers and legs adds extra texture and detail. A quick stitch!

YULETIDE STOCKING
A simple star-clad angel, holly vine and winter snow bird adorn this Christmas stocking. Woolly penny tongues and antique mother of pearl buttons finish this piece off nicely. Dried Sweet Annie and vintage candy-cane pipe cleaners are carefully tucked into the stocking. This will look so sweet hanging from a cupboard door knob.

TREE FARM
You may recall the Wool Farm and Pumpkin Hill patterns released this fall...due to their popularity, we decided we needed a tree farm...a Christmas Tree Farm! And just in time for the holiday season, too! This cupboard hanger features Rudolph & Santa out on a snow December eve picking the perfect tree. Can't you just hear the snow crunching and smell the smell of fresh pine? Rusty jingle bells are stitched to the bottom of the piece for added holiday charm.

And lastly,
the floss keeps have been posted! I thought they needed their own special category, you can view them under the FLOSS KEEP category tab on our website. You can take a peek at what is left...these were selling faster then I could mark them sold out...there were some early bird shoppers keeping watch as they were being posted!! I will be making more of these, when more frames arrive, and as time allows. No advance orders will being taken for these.

Have a good day,

I was one of those early bird shoppers, LOL. I literally kept refreshing my browser this morning waiting on the floss keeps :-). I am so excited about them. I thought they'd make nice gifts and of course I am going to keep a couple for me!!!! Gorgeous new projects! I am just starting to play with punchneedle, I love the Tree Farm!

WooHoo, bring on Christmas! I love all your new designs. The Boughs of Holly pillow is fantastic!
I really want to try punchneedle again after seeing your patterns. I just love the look of it.

I really would like to get started on one of these, but I have several quilts I need to finish. (I love doing the hand quilting). Wish I had all day to stitch, don't you?

Beautiful Christmas pieces. Love the rustic colors. I think my fav is Christmas Tree Farm and then the word play. I need to go check out that series. Keep on stitching.
