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.
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
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.
