New chart issues are always a little slow in the beginning of the year.  The designers are all keeping their new designs for the upcoming Market in Nashville the first weekend of March.  We will continue to get new charts in between now and Market and let you know what's new.

I have to admit a mistake that I made. I've lost the name and number for a special order for a sheep needle nanny placed before Christmas.  I've been searching high and low hoping to find the name, but, it hasn't appeared,  So, hopefully, you know who you are and can come pick up  your sheep.

Gotta go and finish up my inventory.  Stay tuned for more news.....

 Just in from Stacy Nash Primitives are several new pinkeep patterns.  I know some of  my customers have had their fill of pinkeeps, but I just love them.  They are usually a quick stitch and an easy finish (but I just need to start finishing those I have completed).  They can be used as bowl fillers or just sit anywhere...table tops, bookcases.  Above is Ann's Sampler Pinkeeps, followed by Silent Night Pinkeep, Merry Christmas Pinkeep (I don't care that much for alphabets, but I will be doing this one) and Mary's Pinkeep.  All available now at Just Cross Stitch in Lederach.

Sue Hillis has taken our brown sleds  and created a more traditional ornament.  She's not only painted them, but as you can see, she's padded the design, now stitched on fabric as opposed to perforated paper, and added trims, ribbons, bows and buttons.  Christmas Ride and Christmas Sweets are available with 2 pages of very detailed instructions on painting and templates for cutting and trimming the sleds.
