CHRISTMAS IS COMING...

Yes, I know, we haven't even seen Halloween yet, but have you noticed, Christmas is already in all of the stores?  And the Christmas charts are appearing.....


Little House Needleworks gives us a cute cardinal on Seasons Greetings.


 Imaginating offers up Let's Deck the Halls, above. and Let's Be Jolly, a very round snowman.


Third in the 2014 ornament series from Country Cottage Needlework is Snow Love.   I really like the shape on this one.


Jingle comes from Cross Eyed Cricket.  I think it makes a really nice pillow, but I'm apt to leave off the ruffle and just use the cording.


By the Bay brings us a variety in Angels of the Holy Night.  You could use her suggested color scheme or easily change it....you can become your own designer.  Start now and you could finish some of these for this  holiday!

Pineberry Lane new charts and others....

  Lizzie Kate brings us some new stockings for this year.  I think they're cuter than last years.  Flora's getting better.

Halloween Night from Needle Bling Designs....I like the left portion and think it'd make a cute ornie.



Fancey Blackett's October Ride....a must stitch  and her All Hallow's Eve  is another, both from Pineberry Lane.  Boy, I'm going to be stitching Halloween designs till next Halloween!




Threadwork Primitives brings us Give Thanks and My Work.  I've started My Work and it's all finished except the bottom edge.





Vickery Collection has Choppers....any cycle lovers out there?




Heart in Hand has a cute one for the holiday.....A Merry Christmas.  It should stitch up quickly if you need a little gift for someone.  You could even finish it as an easel standup.

JUST IN.....


Dames of the Needle brings us Santa's Sleigh Ride stitched on 28ct Milk Chocolate.  Starry Witch is stitched on 30ct Carrot but we've got a variety of orange colors available, including a beautiful overdye in 14ct Aida.





Hinzeit's Wicked Witch has charms included in the chart.





I love cats, and I love this Miss Isabelle Black from a new designer to the shop, Scattered Seed Samplers.  Guess you already know I'm going to have to do this one!





Another chart, from the same designer, is Harvest Hares Pinkeep.  A nice size pillow finishing out at about 7x4 on a 32ct fabric.




Last, but not least, from Little House Needleworks comes another in the Hometown Holiday Series, the Firehouse and a monochromatic color scheme on natural, Moonlight.  I've been thinking about this one and I think it would finish up nicely as a standup and maybe change the fabric color.




Well that's it for today.  Gotta go and do some stitching!  Stop by soon and check out these and other new designs.  See ya!

FINISHING DEADLINES FOR CHRISTMAS

Time is marching on at a very fast pace.  Saturday November 15, 2014 is the deadline for receiving framing and finishing needed for Christmas.  Any items received after this date are not guaranteed to be finished before the holiday.

So beware!  Get stitching and finish those pieces that will be gifts and get them in to be finished or framed.

CATS ON PARADE

Alternative finishing idea for BBD's Cats on Parade on perforated paper.  I laced it on  at the back of the jar and put in a mini string of lights.  Wanted to have it flicker so I need to get another string that does flicker, but I'm very pleased with the results.

NEW FROM THE SCARLETT HOUSE AND OTHERS

I love White Pumpkins and The Scarlett House has put out Penny Pumpkin and a regular pumpkin called Pumpkins & Bittersweet.  I think both of these are on my 'to do' list.






Homespun Elegance has 3 new ornament charts just released this year:  Olde Saint Nicholas, Merry Christmas Wishes and Snowmen Everywhere.  The colors just don't show up really good in these pics.  They are much more colorful.






Scissortail Designs just released her Snowflake Ornaments.  They complement her Snowflake Tree.





Lastly, Amaryllis Needleworks has brought out another beauty...The Quaker Keeper.
