|A warm Christmas pudding welcome to our Christmas newsletter.
This month we have the remaining Zodiac girls from Nora, a new Mermaid from Julie, new Disney themed kits and a traditional flower kit from Thea Gouverneur. We're extending our ranges of Aida and Metallic thread to give you more options in the 'Kreinik Famine'.
So let's get wired right in ...
We now have the last three Zodiac Girls making a set of twelve by Nora Corbett.
This month's Nora Corbet's new designs are the new zodiac girls and a pair of witches, one in green and one in purple. Fortunately neither uses Kreinik braid or Caron Waterlilies.
Julie, our 'designer in residence', has designed a stunning Mermaid pattern called At Anchor. She's in bright, vibrant hues and is available as a paper pattern at the moment.
Dimensions have introduced new Disney Kits Winnie the Pooh Christmas stockings, Disney princesses and Star Wars characters and a cute little Mario for a junior stitcher.
The long awaited, large flower design by Thea Gouverneur has now arrived. The classic design is based on a traditional Dutch flower painting and is available in 36 count linen and black and white Aida.
We've extended our range of colour printed Aida by MP Studios. Some pieces come in both 14 count and 18 count Aida and in two sizes. Be creative with wild animals on a jungle background or mark a special occasion with the Be Happy style!
We have yet another new metallic yarn. Anchor Fine Metallic although mainly intended for crochet can be used for cross stitch on 14/28 count fabric, needlepoint and hardanger. Only in gold and silver at the moment.
Anne reviewed this yarn and you can read what she said here.
There are bears in the Bargain Basement for December mostly teddies but some real ones (really? ed.) as well.
December is normally our quietest month as stitchers turn their attention to more pressing matters. We're happy that we can grab some time to do the same!
Our title is from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (English writer, 1818-1848):
«Yet my heart loves December's smile
as much as July's golden beam;
then let us sit and watch the while
the blue ice curdling on the stream.»
We hope you can celebrate Christmas in your own way again with friends and family or whatever. Let's start making it a wonderful time all over again!
