New Patterns

We have two new patterns! Christmas Garden is a large dramatic sampler with a vintage feel. Barb loves to stitch a sampler for the holidays but she wanted one she could display throughout the year. It's also a record of her maternal genealogical line. You will find her initials along with those of her mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother. We've included an alphabet so you can add your families' initials.

Two other projects are in the booklet too. A small travel bag is all buttoned  up and ready to hold your treasures as you make a winter visit. A small gift box is included too. It's just the right size to contain that special present for someone you love.

This 12 page booklet is in full color. We are trying a new layout format with our patterns. We are adding lots of new pictures to go along with each project.

The Christmas Garden sampler is stitched on 30ct. Sheep’s Straw by R and R Reproduction. You will need a 1/2 yd. piece of fabric. There will be a bit extra fabric along one edge....just the right amount to do the stocking pattern below also. 


This finished size of the stocking is 3" x 6 1/2". Barb made this one a bit larger than the other stockings in our stocking series we published a couple of years ago.

These patterns will be delivered to our warehouse on Friday and shipped out to the distributors. The shops will begin to have them by the end of next week.

I have some great show and tell pictures to show too. I will add them by the end of this week.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite holidays. It's all about food and family.

Until later,

Alma

  29. Christmas Garden is absolutely gorgeous. I have already ordered the pattern and enough to make one for me and one for my mom. Love the maternal family history on it, as well. I have been wanting to do something with that anyway, and this will be perfect. I am always excited to see your new designs.
