today is the final day…first i would like to thank you if you stuck with us through the entire 12 days. i love christmas…but i need a little breather…i need to get back to my favorite season.
anyways…today i thought i would drop in with just a rundown of our Christmas collections…at the end of this blog post i’ll have all the links.
noel…(my favorite collection this year…it has such a frosty, glazed look to it…it’s just perfect!) mom is midway through a 9-patch project featuring this collection…so keep an eye out for that.
we still have bits and pieces left of Christmas Morning from last year…i’ve relisted all the prints we have left in case you are on the hunt. we’ve also dug up 1 single kit of December Blizzard featuring Christmas Morning…
hello! and good morning…nearly afternoon! hopefully you had a wonderful weekend. i enjoyed the first autumn weekend…and am looking forward to sharing some autumn goodness with you later this week.
we do have 2 more days of Christmas to go…and today and tomorrow will both feature some of my current Christmas favorites.
today…we have Whipping Cream -a low volume double irish chain- that features our Low Volume Christmas bundle. 20 washed-out Christmas prints combine with a classic white and together they are enchanting. This combination is so perfect…
you can add a Whipping Cream kit to your to do list...here.
if you prefer a little bit of slow stitching…then we suggest maybe detouring into the world of cross stitch.
i love Christmas cross stitch (it is a close 2nd behind autumn/halloween cross stitch). i especially love Blackbird Designs…their Christmas Sampler series is on my list. last year i did the classic Merry Christmas…
this year…i’m going to stitch Feliz Navidad…
one of these days…i want to start stitching up these strawberries as well…i can just see a glass candy dish overflowing with these luscious berries…yummy!
you can checkout all the christmas cross stitch here
just one more day…be sure to stop back tomorrow for day 12 of Christmas projects.
as we near the end of october (one of my favorite months of the year) i thought i better do a post highlighting all the autumn we have sprinkled around the shop.
i thought i would start with one of my favorite displays in the shop right now. it highlights almost all the extra goodies we carry…a little quilting, crochet, embroidery, and cross stitch.
i got really into cross stitch during and after the Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop…i wanted to change it up a little so i did some cross stitch…
next up…the porch. we opted for simple and classic autumn. a few white pumpkins to accent the gorgeous Garden District quilt that features Jardin de Fleurs.
i can’t enough of this soft, peachy pumpkin…
the bed in the window. Summer Breeze shines with Figs & Shirtings prints and that black and grey give it that extra somethin-somethin…i love it piled with pillows and a classic and simple tray with a silvery pumpkin and milk glass vases.
Kitty Corn…Urban Chicks skipped a large panel applique quilt for Christmas this year and opted for a sweet number for Halloween.
i loved the greens in Kitty Corn.
Folktale…Lella Boutiques’ collection from 2020…which is still a favorite in the shoppe and absolutely perfect for the autumn season. we’ve whipped up some color bundles with what’s left if you are looking to add a little color to your stash or stitch up a autumn-toned runner for Thanksgiving.
exquisite…delectable and rich…the cheater print is the perfect topper…can’t get enough of that sweet pumpkin spray.
Sweet Beginnings…we haven’t had a chance to make a project out of this gorgeous grouping…but we have plan…which sometimes is half the battle. I love it with this single white pumpkin. The palette is perfect for Christmas as well…red, yellow, green, grey, and creamy white…can’t go wrong.
that’s it for Autumn…we’ll be changing over the shoppe for Christmas over the next week or so…so be sure to join us for the Hometown Holiday Road Trip…Thursday, Friday, & Saturday, November 11th, 12th, & 13th.
you can find kits for everything in the online shop here. let me know if you have any questions or are unable to locate an item.
PS…still waiting on Tilda’s Windy Days, Tilda basics and Urban Farmhouse II by Primitive Gatherings.
it would appear that life will be generally slowing down for awhile. there seems to be no better time to take up a new hobby or return to a favorite.
i love handwork. i always forget how much i enjoy cross stitching until i am doing it. then i just want to cross stitch every project i come across…i want to make at least one project out of every book, and all the projects in the different groups. i always envision doing one a month and pretty soon its been 6 months without a new project. so it goes…
we are building our cross stitch section…lots of new projects from The Pinkeep, Blackbird Designs, La-D-Da, Plum Street, and With Thy Needle and Thread…along with lots more on the way arriving at the end of the week.
i did get in our order of linen…lots of wonderful new colors…can’t wait to get started on a project so i can use some of these yummy colors.
linens from the top down are Sanguine, Havana 36 count, Confederate Gray, Chestnut, Iced Cappuccino, Ligonier Latter, Linen, and Old Towne Blend…all are 32 count linens (other than Havana).
look at how gorgeous these are!
i’ve also been ordering in some fun springtime/Easter themed cross stitch (which i’m almost positive you’d be able to finish before Easter arrives if you end up staying home). these are just a sampling of what we have right now…with fun new patterns coming the end of the week.
cross stitch patterns and linens are available here.
hopefully a little happy mail has brightened your day!
