New Kits from Heritage, Thea and Permin
Winter - cross stitch kit by Permin of Copenhagen
Darcey is a lovely new lady from John Clayton. She has a green dress and auburn hair and with a harp, perhaps smiling Irish eyes? From Heritage Crafts, this lovely kit is available in evenweave or Aida.

Thea Gouverneur has two new cute animal designs a little owl in a bauble hat and a fox cub in a scarf. Available in black and ivory Aida.

We have a selection of kits from Permin`s first 2018 collection. There's a lovely new hardanger design with roses in two sizes of runner, two new dollhouses and landscape pictures.


Wine Bottle Apron Pattern

At this time of year, family dinners have been very much on our minds. Our son-in-law Steuart is only half Scottish but feels that the Royal Stuart tartan (plaid) belongs to him so this year Anne stitched a wine bottle apron in Royal Stuart tartan for a Christmas present - along with the wine of course! You can find the free pattern of the Royal Stuart Wine Bottle Apron to download from our website. Non-Scots are cordially invited to download this pattern too!

We also have the wine bottle apron blanks to save you making them up.


New Beginnings

In the Bargain Basement this month we have half price birth samplers specially for those who have a new beginning in the New Year.


And Finally ...

Our title is taken from a short poem called The Year by American writer Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919).

...
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
...


You can find the whole poem at https://www.best-poems.net/ella-wheeler-wilcox/year.html

Whether you celebrate it in winter's cold or in summer's heat we wish you all the best for the New Year when it comes and we hope you see some of your own dreams realised.
