Now's the Time!

Now's the Time!

The astrologers tell us that whoever is determined to achieve something can make significant progress during November. With Thanksgiving in the US and Christmas a-comin', it's probably just as well as there's lots to do!

Josephine, cross stitch kit by John Clayton/Heritage Crafts

Thea Gouverneur has produced two new religious icons. Our Lady at the Gate of Dawn is particularly striking and colourful. Both designs completely cover the design area on the 18 count Aida and have added sparkle from metallic floss.

We now have four attractive new Christmas table covers from Rico Design. These are hemmed and stamped with the designs for surface embroidery. Also new from Rico are two colourful needlepoint cushions on canvas.

Following the success of Jungle Babies, Sea Babies, Farm Babies and Woodland Babies, the latest afghan and birth sampler design from Stoney Creek is Bug Babies hard to resist, especially if you have any babies in your family!

Bothy Threads have two attractive and colourful new samplers by Susan Wheeler and a Love Tree in the style of the popular Love Heart. And just in ... Nativity, a cartoon scene from the artwork of Julia Rigby all the animals and even the baby Jesus are smiling.

If you like owls and especially the cartoon variety there are several to choose from in Permin of Copenhagen's Autumn Collection. And the cutest baby owl you ever saw is in a new design by Northern Expressions and is called Hootie.

We have two lovely new designs from Riolis' Premium Collection. On Christmas Eve is a wintry scene stitched on sparkling Aida and Flemish Summer is a traditional vase of flowers in the style of the Dutch masters.

New babies are continually arriving (!) and we have four new kits from RTO of sleeping babies with toys.

Carrying on with the fairy tale theme the latest design from Miribilia is Ella The Frog Princess another lovely lady in a beautiful dress with a crowned frog sitting on her hand.

The most recent lady, Josephine (illustrated), from the Elegance Collection by John Clayton is on order from Heritage Crafts and the first ones should be available next week, with more promised for December.

Elves` House a June Armstrong design by Bothy Threads is on special offer this Christmas while stocks last. Reduced by a further 20% on our already low price. The busy elves have a wooden roof with a snow covered roof decorated for the big day.
